Advantages Provides the ideal amount of moisture your skin needs; Smells great; Fair price
Disadvantages Errrr... if you're pushing me, pump would have been better for hygiene reasons
I'm not usually a fan of Lush but…Okay, who am I trying to kid! Yes, I love Lush products but when it came to facial moisturisers something was holding me back making me feel a bit dubious that their moisturisers would work. It was only earlier this year that I took the plunge and bought my very first Lush moisturiser: Imperialis - "the majestic moisturiser".
I chose this particular one from the range of 10 moisturisers that Lush offer because it was the cheapest one that suited my skin type, costing £8.25 for 45g. I have normal skin that has a tendency to become slightly oily in the T-zone area if I'm stressed, ill or hormonal. Lush claim that Imperialis is a cream that simply moisturises and keeps the skin balanced which is just what I was after. It is created for all skin types but particularly good for combination skin.The pale dusky pink
This cream is one of the most beautiful smelling beauty products I have ever had the pleasure of using. It smells like a bouquet of freshly cut flowers and it comes as no surprise to see that most of the ingredients in this little luxury are in fact flowers: lavender, orange and tiger lily are the main ones and they are key to the balancing properties of this cream. It also contains, among other things, olive oil, shea butter and cocoa butter which are three of the best naturally moisturising ingredients around. I much prefer to use skin care products with natural ingredients rather than nasty synthetics that probably do more harm than good. This product is also vegan-friendly**.I have been using this moisturiser as a day cream, applying it first thing in the morning before make-up. The cream has a very light consistency and I made the classic mistake of using far too much the first time because I didn't think that such a light cream would be rich enough. How wrong was I! You literally need to just dab the tip of your finger in to the pot and that will provide enough cream to moisturise your whole face and neck. The cream absorbs very well, it takes a few minutes and you are left with soft skin that is silky to the touch, ready to put on your make-up or just up and go. It also leaves your skin ever so lightly scented and it's great to catch a whiff and think "Mmmm what's that gorgeous smell?"
