I'm a believer in natural skincare products, and do like LUSH a lot. However, this moisturizer was a fail for me. It's supposed to be balancing the oily and dry areas on your face, but it did not work for me. The consistency is more of a lotion than a cream, I find it not moisturizing enough for my dry cheeks, but overly oily on my oily T-zone. Especially on my nose, which turned even more oily than normal. If you want something along the same idea as this moisturizer, try LUSH's Vanishing cream if you have oilier skin, and Celestial if you have drier skin.
I think this moisturizer is okay. Nothing special...didn't really brighten up my skin as it claimed. Plus, it left a film of grease on my face! I am still hunting for a better day time moisturizer.
I'm about to finish my first pot of this stuff, and have been browsing Sephora to see if I want to purchase something else instead, but nothing else is cutting it. I want something that is moisturizing enough to use at night, but light enough to use during the day. This stuff is perfect, it sinks right in and just feels so light and fresh on the skin. I use just a tiny bit in the AM before I put anything else on my face, then use just a bit more for nighttime moisturizing.
It should be said that I have pretty normal skin - I doubt this would be mattifying enough for those who need more serious oil control, and those with dry skin would definitely want something creamier.
All in all, the versatility of going from AM to PM is what sells me on this. It helps keep my stash organized, and I know what I'm putting on my face is fresh. A pot lasted me about a year. Works great on my normal-combination skin. Simple & effective.
I tried this moisturizer after using Imperialis and right off the bat did not like the smell. I found it really strong but I had paid so much for it that I decided I would give it a try anyways. It did have really nice benefits for my skin and it was light but still nourishing. Overall, it did great things for my skin. The price tag is a little on the higher side but it lasts a really long time. I'd like to try to Vanishing Cream but if that one doesn't work, I will no doubt come back to this one.
As so many others, this broke me out...
I love vanishing cream by lush as my nighttime moisturizer and the SA recommended this for the day time but alas, this is going back.
I can get away with not using a moisturizer in the am in the summer, but am still on the hunt for a good winter daytime moisturizer that neither breaks me out nor makes me too shiny.
Im rating this a 3 because Im sure it would work well for those that dont break out from it.
This is the one and only moisturiser I ever use. I have combination skin and find that most moisturisers sit too heavy on my oily areas, however this is perfect. It some how stops my t-zone from becoming an oily mess as the day goes on and leaves my whole complexion looking and feeling fresh and light. It also enhances my make-up's staying power. Normally I would have something negative to say about a product but there really is nothing I can moan about when it comes to this moisturiser. Has left me in a healthy skin bliss. Thank you lush!
The only moisturizer I've used so far that I can keep on loving. Before Lush, I didn't moisturize my skin. It felt wierd, made me greasy. Then I tried Imperialis. Overall it was good but it freaked me out when it changed it's consistency after a while. Then it came Celestial. It's nice for a night cream but too heavy for daytime use. Skin Drink is great for harsh winters. British Nanny is the best thing for going skiing, but sooo so heavy. It's like putting butter on face. Gorgeous and Vanishing cream made me break out. I always thought Enzymion was not for me. I didn't even consider buying it because it was for oily skin. My skin is dry on cheeks and a bit oilier on my nose and chin, again extremely dry on my forhead, with some ugly breakouts on the side of my cheeks near the ears. Enter the ENZYMION. All the problems GONE! No more oliy nose with clogged black pores, enough moisture for my dry cheeks, and the blemishes gone. I don't know why haven't I tried it before. It is my only holy grail moisturizer. I will love Enzymion till the end of time. I hate the container though. As longs as you don't take it away on trips and it stands at home in one spot it's ok.
This stuff is great! I can really see a difference on my T-zone, it's much less oily, has smaller pores and less dark spots. I have never tried a moisturizer that made that much of a difference!
I'm from Norway and the winters can be quite harsh here. I tend to get dry patches, so when it's cold I use Imperialis instead. I switch to Enzymion as soon as I can because it's the best moisturizer for oily skin I've ever tried. It smells divine, unlike many of Lush's moisturizers. It's one of their more expensive creams though, but still worth the price if you have oily skin and tried everything else.
Only downside is that the lid is a bit leaky (this goes for all Lush pots), a lot of product ends up in the crease between the lid and the pot and makes it look really messy! This annoys me so much that I don't bring Lush pots with me when I travel.
I bought this moisturizer before it got really cold and it works really great! the only issue i have with this is that if you have combination skin with an oily T-zone spread sparingly around those areas. I noticed that throughout the day my nose and forehead were so shiny and oily my friends were shocked, so i had to blot those areas. Other than that it's a great moisturizer, though a bit expensive. I love lush because it's natural.
Enzymion is a good moisturizer. It smells EXACTLY like Fruit Loops, which I LOVE. It has great spread-ability; you just need the tiniest amount to cover your whole face. Leaves my oily skin feeling richly hydrated. However, it is not mattifying as they say. I feel like my skin looks kinda greasy after I put it on, unless I'm very careful to apply just the tiniest amount.
