Lush Celestial Facial Moisturizer and Vanishing Cream Facial Moisturizer: Review

Disclaimer: Product featured was provided for review.Lush Celestial Facial Moisturizer and Vanishing Cream Facial Moisturizer: Review
Lush is undoubtedly known as the awesome, cruelty-free, eco-friendly, and amazing-smelling bath and body store that offers all the super adorable bath bombs and bubble bars. But did you know that Lush offers a line of fresh and natural line of facial moisturizers made from food-based ingredients?
Today I have two Facial Moisturizers from Lush to introduce to y'all, so if you are interested in learning what these au naturale moisturizers can do for you skin, click......
All the Lush Facial Moisturizers come in 45g recyclable black pots with a twist-off lid. Because the openings of the Lush pots are quite wide, I find it's easy to make a mess so made sure to store these moisturizers upright.
Lush Celestial Facial Moisturizer and Vanishing Cream Facial Moisturizer: Review
Celestial Facial Moisturizer ($24.95 for 45g):
Designed For: Dry, sensitive skin that experiences lots of redness, itching, stinging, or irritation

Key Ingredients:
-Vanilla water
-Almond oil
-Almond milk
-Fair trade cocoa butter
-Fresh dove orchid extract

Texture & Result:
The Celestial Facial Moisturizer has a very light, whipped texture. In fact, the cream actually looks and smells a bit like vanilla flavored yogurt! The product absorbed quickly but for someone who has combination to oily skin, the moisturizer is just a tad heavy, not suitable for day wear. However, I did notice that my skin looks super glow-y and healthy in the morning and I think that for someone who truly experiences sensitive and irritated dry skin, this moisturizer will work wonders! Megan from Megan Joy swears by this moisturizer!
Lush Celestial Facial Moisturizer and Vanishing Cream Facial Moisturizer: Review
Vanishing Cream Facial Moisturizer ($42.95 for 45g):
Designed For: Oily, blemish-prone skin

Key Ingredients:
-Lavender honey water
-Witch hazel extract
-Grapeseed oil
-Organic jojoba oil
-Organic shea butter

Texture & Result:
With a subtle scent of lavender, the Vanishing Cream has a very light and thin formulation and it absorbs very quickly. With that said though, I would only use this in the night time as it doesn't help control sebum production and when worn under makeup my skin becomes shinier faster. However, just like Celestial, the Vanishing Cream does a wonderful job of conditioning skin at night, giving me hydrated and supple skin in the morning.

I think both of these work really well as night time moisturizers for those with oily/combination skin. For those with dry or sensitive skin, these can probably used during the day as well. In opinion, these moisturizers are not all that different from each other. Although they smell differently and have drastically different textures, both moisturizers absorbed very quickly into the skin and made the skin more beautiful in the morning so I'm not sure whether the Vanishing Cream is worth the investment as it is significantly more expensive than the Celestial Facial Moisturizer.
