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.
Celestial Facial Moisturizer ($24.95 for 45g):
Designed For: Dry, sensitive skin that experiences lots of redness, itching, stinging, or irritation
-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!
Vanishing Cream Facial Moisturizer ($42.95 for 45g):
Designed For: Oily, blemish-prone skin
-Lavender honey water
-Witch hazel extract
-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.
