This LUSH Lotion Sold Out (But Is Back in Stock!) After a Mom’s Viral Post About How It Cured Her Baby’s Eczema
The company is working hard to keep this miracle lotion in stock.
If you or your little ones struggle with eczema, then you probably don't need us to explain how difficult the search for a solution to the dry, itchy, scratchy skin condition can be. It may feel like you've already tried every miracle-promising product on the market (and have the credit card bills to prove it), but finding one that actually works is near impossible. So when one mom shared on Facebook the one cream that finally worked for her baby's eczema this past weekend, the internet couldn't order it fast enough.
The eczema-curing lotion in question: LUSH's cult-favorite Dream Cream ($30; lushusa.com). On Saturday, Facebook user Sarah Rudd shared a photo of her baby before and after using the cream, which as the photo evidence proves, helped cure the eczema her little one has had since birth. After trying numerous creams, including hydrocortisone, and struggling through four sleepless months, Rudd finally decided to give the Dream Cream a try. One month later, Rudd reports: "it’s transformed his skin and he’s now completely and utterly eczema free."
Clearly, the relatable struggle with eczema struck a cord, because over the past five days, the post has collected over 35,000 likes and has been shared more than 40,000 times. According to a press representation from LUSH, sales for the product skyrocketed (a 184 percent increase) within 48 hours after the post went viral, causing it to sell out almost immediately. But good news: It's now back in stock in LUSH stores and on lushusa.com.
So, what makes the Dream Creamy so dreamy? It contains chamomile oil, which is used to calm skin irritation and redness. It also contains a high concentration of azulene, an organic compound that's known for soothing skin. So whether you're looking for a cure for your own eczema or just want a lotion that won't irritate your super-sensitive skin, you'll want to give the Dream Cream a whirl. Thank you, LUSH, for once again proving that you can do anything other beauty brands can do (and better), while staying true to products that are vegan, cruelty-free, and handmade.
