this moisturizer was pretty nice, but it was hard for me to get over the length it too to actually soak in to my skin. i am not much of a fan of waiting for my skin to dry from moisturizers, so i guess thats my problem with this!
I may be a little hasty with this review but I love the moisturizer sooooo much I had to write about it. I've only been using for about a week but when I started using a more moisturizing cleanser (Lush's-AOBS) I wanted a slightly lighter cream than what I was using (Olay classic cream). The smell of this cream caught me off guard at first but like most herbaly things, it's growing on me. It is meant for combo skin and I find it does a wonderful job of balancing my complexion. My (face) cheeks are now as soft as a baby's bum.
I got this about 4 days ago, it smells really nice. It moistureizes well on my dry spots and it doesnt get too greasy on my oily spots. It goes on nice, i use it right after my tea tree water toner and only use a tiny bit and rub it into my face wet with the toner. according to the Lush lady she said doing it this way will help seal in all of the good things in the toner and cleanser to help heal my acne.
I havent seen much of an improvement yet as far as my acne goes, but its only been a couple days, I would probably buy it again after I use this one for a while longer
The smell isn't great but this is a great light weight lotion for me in the summer for my combo skin. I would definitely repurchase it.
This is a nice, light moisturizer with a very subtle scent. It applies easily, without tugging at my skin, and the moisturizing effects last for quite a while. Since it's such an all-around, anywhere, anytime cream, I tend to keep it on my vanity table (instead of in the bathroom with most of my moisturizers) where I can use it for quick touchups. The only reason I probably won't buy this again is that my skin is getting drier (and older) and I should get stronger stuff now.
I purchased this product for $21.45 for 45 grams after trying out a sample of it. I really like the scent and the natural ingredients (lavendar, orange blossom, etc.). It is a bit pricey for such a small container, but a little bit goes a long way. I don't find this moisturizer to be very greasy, and it is light enough for my oily spots yet heavy enough for my dry spots (I have combination skin). The container is not the best packaging-wise, but that is expected with LUSH. Overall, this is a pretty good moisturizer that does it's job and it doesn't upset my sensitive skin.
It's strange consistency, smell and mattifying effect didn't bother me, as long as I haven't realized after a month that the unusual and huge cysts and zits on my face are caused by this innocent-looking cream.
A rare thumbs up here for Imperialis, I really like this moisturiser. Has a strange mattifying effect on my skin, while leaving it soft and supple. Admittedly, you can easily go overboard on application, leaving a slimey feeling face, but a tiny little dab each for my cheeks and forehead seems to do the trick. It is definitely a winter moisturiser only!
On the other hand, it doesn't seem to have improved my skin condition at all, despite what the label says. Not to worry, I'm just happy that it moisturises my dry winter face patches without smelling too strong, or breaking my face out.
I bought this quite a long while back~ It works really well with other LUSH products but sometimes it gets a little too sticky...and oily. If you wear make-up with its great at first, but after a while, your face gets more oily than it normally would have been.
I'm still trialling a massive sample of this that I received but I think I might buy a full-size jar when it's finished. Imperialis to me smells pretty good and has a light texture, but hydrates my skin well, doesn't break me out, and doesn't leave me greasy or oily. Good stuff.
