I love LUSH skin care. I used to suffer from skin problems but I give this Gorgeous moisturiser the credit for making my skin glow and look healthy. I live in the UK and it costs £40 here which is cheap compared to when I visited the US and it was significantly more expensive. I never thought my dull, once acne ridden, oily t-zone and normal cheek skin could look alive again. But I get compliments now and I credit this. Give this a shot, this is what Princess Diana used (google it) - so it isn't no ordinary moisturiser! :)

First of all I love almost everything Lush. I haven't had anything I wasn't happy with in any department be it hair care, skin care or body. I had been eyeing this up for a long time but couldn't bring myself to spend almost 90$ on it, so I bought the Hello Gorgeous gift box which has a small, but decent amount of it in there (along with other great Lush products) and it was $40. This smaller sample type size has lasted me months using it everyday and with most Lush products a little goes a long way. I find Gorgeous fairly thick, but drotting it around my face it absorbs well and doesn't feel thick on my skin. I like the smell also as It's not overwhelming. It keeps my skin hydrated without it looking or feeling greasy which is also a plus. But all in all I don't think it's worth the money. I've had other moisturizers that do te job just as well. It's a good moisturizer, don't get me wrong, but I'm not willing to spend a ridiculous amount of money on something I can find just as good for a quarter of the price.

I'm glad that I got a sample of this before buying a full size, because it's a disaster on my skin. Gorgeous has such a strong, tart, perfumey orange blossom scent to it that it actually gives me a headache. A lot of the LUSH facial moisturizers have a strong scent that goes away within about five minutes, but the smell of this one lasts for hours. It's so overwhelming. And the cream itself just seems to sit on my skin. After applying this, my skin feels dry and tight, but it has a greasy film on it if I touch my face with my hands. It never sinks in. I wound up having to wash this off after a couple hours, because I couldn't stand the scent and my skin felt tight and stinging. Not a fan of this one at all.

Out of all the Lush moisturizers, this is my favorite. I have combo skin oily in tzone and dryer on the perimeter. Most moisturizers with oils in them clog my pores. This one hasn't. I love the smell, the fact that it is hydrating without clogging and that it sinks right in without leaving a residue. The packaging isn't the best but that is because its Lush and they don't really believe in packaging. I do like moisturizers in a pump bottle which is more hygenic, so I will transfer this one into a pump container.

Would I buy this product again? YES!!!!
I purchased this and did not realize how much I loved it and how much it works for me until I ran out and started using something else. The price is steep but how many of you would spend over $100 on shoes and they go on your feet. I cheat and buy the "Hello Gorgeous" gift set sometimes. It is only $40 it comes with a smaller pot of gorgeous as well as a bunch of other great porducts such as rub rub rub, a bath bomb, cuticle butter, body lotion and a bubble bar. If you want to try this ask for a sample or cheat and buy the gift set.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Hazel
I have sensitive, acne-prone combination skin. I started using Gorgeous nearly a year ago during the dry winter (East Coast, USA). (I normally use Vanishing Cream; in fact, whenever I break out from PMS, I immediately switch to Vanishing Cream instead of using Gorgeous.)
--- love, love, LOVE how this smells (sweet orange blossom)
--- moisturizing without clogging
--- quickly absorbs into skin and feels lightweight / can't feel it
--- only need about a nickle-sized amount for my whole face
--- noticeably diminished crater scars from cystic acne (seriously, but only while wearing)
--- seems to make my skin "glow" with a healthy radiance. Relatives commented on my face.
--- amazing for under the eyes (my aunt prefers this over Lush's Enchanted Eye Cream, which felt oily to her and didn't work)
--- too heavy / moisturizing for humid summers (East Coast)
--- made me break out during the summer
--- wish it came in a pump-style container so I wouldn't have to dip my fingers into the pot
--- while it successfully dimishes/fills in crater scarring, the effects wear off within 2-3 days without using this moisturizer
--- extremely expensive at $90 for a pot. One pot lasts me 3-4 months, though.
NOTE: If you want to try this, get a sample of it first. Lush is usually very generous with samples, although they may be more modest with this product. If you ever do buy something from Lush and it doesn't work for your skin, don't be afraid to return it. It doesn't need to be a waste of money! They're very kind and understanding about returns and exchanges.

*Packaging: The usual black small tub which is terrible for this product! It is prone to leakage and a lot of product gets stuck in the screw lid!
*Price: The price made me hesitant at first to try it, but as I am on a mission to try each and every Lush product where I can get my hands on, I just HAD to try it. And it was worth every penny. Because not only does this moisturizer makes you feel gorgeous, a little goes a very long way.
*Smell: Orange Blossom - ish. I like it.
*Result: I use it every morning for since almost a year (I'm on my second tub) and I couldn't live without it anymore. It sinks in very fast, without leaving a greasy, waxy, shiny feeling behind. It makes my skin soft, glowing and healthy looking. No breakouts, no more exczema at all... perfect for my combination skin - will repurchase!
To be quite honest I have tried some cheaper Lush moisturizers, but I always returned to Gorgeous. This is a miracle worker. Please do ask for a sample at your local Lush shop.

It's taken me 6 months to write this review because I wanted to use this product for a long time to see if I love it. I DO. I'm very particular about expensive products, but this one is valuable and will be repurchased.
After my shower I spritz Eau Roma Water (do not pat) and apply a small amount- 3 fingertips- on my face for my morning moisturizer routine. It's just light enough to absorb quickly and my skin reacts well. It does not clog my pores. I'm 51, with normal skin that can be quite dry from my woodstove in winter.
Lush will give you a tester so I recommend trying it.

Ok so i got a sample of this in a gift box i got about a month ago. Ive been using it every day and im sad to say that i dont see anything special about it. To me its just a facial moisturiser and i would be able to get one from the supermarket for a lot cheaper that would work just as well! Also i dont really like the smell that much. On the positive side, it sinks in quickly and doesnt leave a greasy residue

I've been using Lush products for many years, also when they were Cosmetics To Go and am a huge fan of the company and products in general. I can safely say I've worked my way round to trying pretty much most things except for the Cacas henna hair colour as I'm blonde and have no plans on splurging on their new Emotional Brilliance colour cosmetics range as it looks clownish. Their bath/shower and body products are wonderful but over the years I've struggled with their moisturisers. I used to use Imperialis as I'm combination but it wasn't delivering that extra special oomf that my ageing skin craved, also I have had ill health and due to drug treatments also my skin suffered as a result. I had a failed romance with Skin's Shangri La (love the fragrance but it's cocoa butter content I think broke me out) returned to Imperialis, flirted with some unmentionables and then Lush brought out Gorgeous. I was loathed to try it at first because of the name didn't evoke how I was feeling and I'd been once bitten by Skin's Shangri La and also it's ridiculously expensive as Lush products per se have gotten over the years. However, as Lush is basically like my crack, it doesn't stop me making a bee line for their shop whenever I'm in town. After a tete a tete with a member of staff (I'm a sucker for the enthusiasm of the lovely Lush assistants) I threw caution to the wind and tossed a pot into my basket. It was love at first spread. It gave my skin a glow, didn't break me out, moisturised where it needed to and felt like it gave my skin what it badly craved. I've used it for a couple of years now and it's all been good, however my health has suffered again and my skin has started to age over the last few months (had more horrible but necessary drugs) so I am currently flirting with an anti-ageing aromatherapy range of serums, moisturisers and oils called Solace to see if I can get back on track with my skin. If all else fails, I hope Gorgeous will forgive me and welcome me back with open arms.

okay. i've tried many moisturizers in the past, but this one takes the cake. a little bit goes a longggg way. you only need a tiny amount for your entire face. it makes you glow. it heals scabs and speeds up acne recovery. it feels heavy and greasy to the touch, so like i said, a little bit goes a long way. i only need to use this once every couple days, but i've seen a huge improvement. i was a little hesitant to purchase due to the price, but it was totally worth it. it didn't clog my pores. and is just all around a wonderful product. i am hooked on the LUSH line.

I liked this a lot, but it wasn't moisturizing enough for me. It stung very slightly when I first put it on, and it had a strong scent -- a nice one, which I think was the neroli oil -- but not something I want to put on my face. It did soften my skin and make my face look relaxed in the morning, but it wasn't $90-worth of difference.

Now that I'm in my 40's I find that I need a pretty intense moisturizer or I end up looking like the cryptkeeper. This is not a great moisturizer.
HOWEVER, I use this once a day and it does give me a very pretty glow and is truly a noticeable difference in my skin. It evens out the coloring on my face so well and even makes my freckles look cute (no idea how, this must be magical).
I do have to use a heavier moisturizer aimed at preventing wrinkles etc once a day (typically at night). But I will buy the (HIGHLY OVERPRICED) gorgeous over and over.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination, Fair, Neutral Hair: Blond, Straight, Fine Eyes: Hazel
I found it best as the body cream :) i have been using it over a year now and i would say it keeps my skin so soft and even out the skintone. Love it!!!!!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
Awesome product. I was very hesitent to use it due to the fact that my skin easily breaks out and the product has alot of fruit oils in it, but once I tried it I was sold for life! It is expensive so I suggest going into a Lush store and asking for a sample (they will only give you a tiny amount).
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
I got this as a sample from the SA at the Lush store. I didn't look at the price at the time...I got home and tried it, and was not impressed. It's just an average moisturizer for me and truthfully, it left my skin a little on the greasy side...
Then I saw the price. >
$90 for a bottle. I want to hear angels sing the next time I put $90 moisturizer on. Angels. Singing. Loudly.
Absolute waste of money---there are so many other products out there that would do the same job for a fraction of the cost.

I'm using a tiny lipbalm pot of this stuff now, debating on getting the full size when I use it up. It's moisturising without being heavy, sinks in easily, doesn't break me out or exacerbate my oily spots too much and helps out a lot with my dry, flaky spots. Smells nice, and you don't need much. I'd prefer a pump to a pot, but it doesn't bother me too much. The price is pretty steep, so I'm still undecided.

I got this moisturiser for half price. I've wanted to try it for ages, but baulked at the price. And now... I'm hooked.
It's a heavier moisturiser, and I was a bit apprehensive but it hasn't broken me out or clogged me at all. In fact, when I apply it at night, in the morning my skin is matte, bright and clear. My pores have decreased in size and my skin is soft and smooth.
It takes a while for it to sink in, but I don't really find this to be an issue as I use it mainly at night. If I put it on in the morning, I just top it with translucent powder and I'm ready to go.
This is the most impressive moisturiser I've tried for a long time, and I will definitely buy it again, even at full price.

Yes, it's very expensive, but it's totally worth it.
I've tried every facial moisturizer from Lush, and this is the only one that hasn't broken me out. Instead, it just makes my skin look unbelievably amazing. It brightens like no other. Also, a little goes a long way (since you're supposed to apply it on slightly damp skin; do this -- you'll see much better results and you'll get more bang for your buck), so a tub should last you, like, a year. I have never gotten such amazing results from a moisturizer, and my skin is difficult: sensitive, combination and breakout-prone. This stuff somehow moisturizes the dry parts of my skin and mattifies the oily parts. I will definitely repurchase.

AMAZING!!!!!!! The only downside to this moisturizer is the packaging. It comes in a recycled tub, which is eco-friendly, but it will spill easily so be careful as this is expensive. This is the BEST moisturizer I have ever used. I was a little apprehensive because even though it doesn't have mineral oil in it, it is made with many other fruit oils, and I was afraid I would break out..NOPE!! It actually clears your skin up, and creates a beautiful (Gorgeous) :) lit from within glow. I don't even need to wear makeup with this product. I look stunning just with the moisturizer, and you will too! It doen't have an SPF though, so that's another downside. But I have a sheer tinted moisturizer with SPF 15, I just put it over it. As for the smell, I personally love it. It smells like oriental flowers or a citrus scent. I know it's expensive, but here is a little tip! Order from the UK website and you will save like $40 with the conversion! Just pick the Royal USA shipping option. I got mine in less than a week! I will def be repurchasing this product again and again!!! :)
