Okay, so I got a little sample of this after trying LUSH's enzymion moisturizer (which I found too light for my skin). First of all, I have combination skin. I get oily on my forehead and my nose, and dry between my eyebrows and on the sides of my nose - weird, I know. I felt this stuff and it seemed pretty good. Thicker than the other one, maybe a bit thick for day use, but hey, I'm down for a night time moisturizer. So I spray my skin with tea tree water and put this on concentrating on my dry areas and I couldn't believe how nice it felt on my skin. And when mixing it in with the tea tree water I only had to use a tiny amount. I went to bed, hoping for the best and woke up pleasantly surprised! My dry patches make it impossible to put my makeup on without looking flaky, but this stuff fixed everything! I haven't found anything that will calm my problem areas down without making me look like I'm dripping in grease and this stuff did it! It didn't make my forehead gross, and it quenched my skin beautifully. They gave me a pretty generous sample and I've used it every night, and sometimes day time for the rough patches and I'm definitely planning on getting the full size. If anything, it's a great night time moisturizer and not to mention it feels so great and smells amazing. Love this.
ok this is really expensive but lovely moisteriser! i use it as a night cream as it is very heavy so is great for night but not really daytime. its texture is smooth and silky and it does spread lovely and soaks in nice.
the smell, well it smells like porridge but unless u dont like porridge it is a subtle nice scent. i noticed my skin looking more plump since using. overall loved it. :-)
My skin is a mess! I have sensitive and oily skin. I'm almost 40. Some aging. I use a retin product about 3-4 times a week. On other nights I use Clarins Oil (LOVE!), and /or this product. I am starting to worry about chemicals on my skin (I know, I know, RETIN - A??). This is a good, reliable, high quality product. I wish it were slightly less greasy, but that is only a slight complaint as I only ever wear it at night. The scent smells like chalk, BUT I usually react to fragrances, so at least I know this is not a fragrance. I also really like Gorgeous from Lush as well, I would give these both a tie. But yes. I will buy again. And althoug hthe prices is a bit high, I know it's good quality products and that it lasts!
I agree with other posts, I wish this came in a pump.
I have really dry skin and this one is pretty moisturizing, but i hate that it leaves a greasy film on my face. The thing that puts me off most is the scent, it reminds me of horse stables...really not an appealing scent to have on your face.
Wow, love this mosturiser. It's by far the best one I have ever used. I bought it based on the reviews on here and I'm so glad I did. When I went to pay for it I was a bit shocked at the £26 price tag, but it's well worth it. I only use it as a night time cream as it's really heavy, moisturising and you can definately see it's on your face. Having said that it's heavy though, it does not clog your pores, as my skin is oily and I've had no problems with it. I also tried it under a really heavy foundation (Double Wear Maximum Coverage) and it worked well. It sootths skin, make it glowy, and I always feel good in the morning after having had it on at night! The smell took me some getting used to, it's a vanilla scent but I can live with it. I will deffo be repurchasing!
I tried this for the first time last night, and this morning my husband, who famously never notices anything, told me I was looking bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. This was without make-up and before I'd even brushed my hair. So it's a keeper.
It smells a little odd (is it the cocoa butter?), but not chemically so, and the jar container is a downside. But it keeps my face very soft throughout the night and into the morning. Also, I'm usually one to slather on moisturizers and go through them far too quickly, but with this you really do only need a small amount.
Update: After using this for a few weeks, I'm quite fed up with how greasy it is. It feels as though it's sinking in less than it did when I first used it. Maybe that's because it has moisturized my skin so well that I don't need it anymore! But whatever the reason, I no longer look forward to putting it on, and I don't think I will buy it again.
I'm a huge fan of Lush body products so I decided to venture over to their skincare. Primarily the moisturizers. I got a few samples and I'm sticking with Skin's Shangri La. I tried Gorgeous and although I liked it I didn't LOVE it and for $90 I need to be in LOOVEEE!! I do LIKE Skin's Shangri-La and will repurchase. It makes my skin feel very dewy and soft. I got my eyebrow's waxed and the esthetician said my skin felt really soft:)
I really, really like this moisturizer. I have combination skin and often struggle to find a way to get the proper hydration I need to eliminate flaky spots and not have my t-zone look like a mirror. I have found that glorious in-between! It is very gentle and non-irritating, but intensely moisturizing and surprisingly thick upon application. The texture and overall feel of my skin has improved dramatically and I have noticed a significant decrease in the little hyperpigmentation spots that dot my chin after a breakout. I use in the morning after cleansing and it absorbs fairly quickly, leaving my skin supple and glowing. The price, although slightly higher than LUSH's others moisturizers on the market, I can see why it has that extra few bucks thrown on. My skin seems to be improving with every use and I recommend this to anyone (though perhaps not someone with excessively oily skin unless you're using it as a night cream). I plan to switch this to night use once summer rolls around, since I predict it may be a little heavy for the warmer temperature.
Having spent a small fortune in my lifetime seeking a truly good moisturizer, I have found it in Shangri-la. A tiny bit goes a long, long way, as the sales reps will tell you, so that takes away some of the sticker shock. This moisturizer, combined with the Coulour Supplements also makes the best foundation ever -- EVER. No more foundation lying like axle grease on my face, and no more chalky emphasis of pores and dry patches. This stuff is wonderful.
I really like this moisturizer, I have a small size of it. I'm not sure how much the large size if so I can't rate the price.
I use this lotion on my cheeks and nose mostly, that's where I get really dry. If I notice any dry flakiness on my face I'll put this moisturizer on those parts and in the morning they're practically all cleared up. Not noticable at all.
This does have an interesting smell, not bad but it's not something I've smelt before. I can't quite describe it, but I guess it does smell natural.
