Along with the potted version, Lush also released Once Upon A Time Body Lotion in a packaging free, naked form!
You use a Naked Body Lotion much like you would a massage bar, grabbing the whole product and gliding it over your skin, allowing the butters and oils to leave a rich trail of hydration behind it.
Both versions are basically the same product, the naked version just has a different formulation and a couple of extra ingredients to make it solid. Because of this, I’d say that this version is a lot richer and much more moisturising. It still contains the Murumuru and Illipe Butters like the potted variety but also Cocoa and Shea Butters too. Japan Wax and Carnauba Wax also help the product retain its state and protect the skin.
Because it’s richer, you don’t need to use as much with each application and I’d say that this version definitely lasts you longer than the other.
A downside to this version is that the scent is a lot more subtle. You get the more citrusy notes from the essential oils rather than the juicy freshness of the apples and for this reason I think I prefer the potted. I think because, weirdly (and I’m not entirely sure why), this version replaces the Apple Water for mineral rich Spring Water, that this might be the reason why it doesn’t smell as appley. I’d also say that the scent lasts a lot longer when using the non-naked version too.
Again, like with it’s potted brother, the small amount of glitter is barely noticeable, so don’t worry too much if that’s not your thing!
Do you prefer to go naked or keep the pot on? Let me know!
