Well, this bar is supreme. It moisturises like a dream. Why, it’s tattoo brightening! You won't need much elbow grease, slip this blend of hydrating cupuacu and murumuru butters over anywhere that needs a little hydration. Originally designed for elbows, we've found that this oily little number is so gorgeous that it would be simply wrong to deny other areas a bit of love. If you've got tattoos, glide over your ink to make colour and detail pop, as well as soothe. To add an extra note of sunshine to your day cheerful neroli, ylang ylang and orange flower blossom are sure to put a smile on your face.

Melt warning: this product is made with ingredients that allow it to soften around body temperature. During hot spells, it may melt. If you have any concerns please contact Customer Care.

I cannot fault this product, I know it’s be out for awhile but every time it run outs I still constantly buy it. I love the smell the way it’s applied smoothly. But also I know it’s for tattoos but my mum has eczema and I told her to try this and it works we have tried every product possible...

The smell is VERY strong, very florally. It's also very oily, it melts right onto the skin. It has made my tattoos instantly brighter, but I found it took a long time for the oil to absorb. I would be cautious getting this stuff on your clothes cause it stains/leaves oil marks. The packaging needs to be rethought, it doesn't lend itself to just paper packaging as the product melts in your hand as youre rubbing it onto your skin. It's just very impractical, I know Lush are against plastic packaging but this should be in a stick deodorant style applicator. Still on the fence about this.

I absolutely love the smell of elbow grease and it’s very moisture rich properties. I first picked this up just because I loved the smell. Before getting elbow grease, every time I had a shower I would then condition my skin with my own cold pressed coconut oil and loved how clean, soft and coconuty (yes I know not a word but I’m running with it) my skin would be after. It was the only thing that helped my very dry skin stay soft and hydrated. So on finding this in store one day and the amazing list of butters and oils I knew it was for me.

This is my go-to overnight lip moisturiser, and I also use it on my eczematous eyelids, and it REALLY works. My other overnight lip moisturiser is Handy Gurugu which is a bit over-moisturising TBH, and best used only at the harshest of times. I also liked to use this for instant relief on really dry skin, like an overworked tattoo or dry elbows. The other moisturisers are just too sticky and take too long to soak in, and a quick hit from Lemony Flutter is the next best thing and that's REALLY sticky. Hoping this returns!
