Opps Almond Kisses - smells just like Snowcake and Smitten. Its a very heavy moisturizer. It was too much for me and I was left as an oil slick half way through the day.

I love this product. I had used Mary Kay's formula for dry (and even for extra dry skin when I was younger) and I finally switched when I discovered LUSH.
I love the smell of this product--it's got a great smell that's not too strongly perfumed. Additionally, because it's not very heavy, I find that a little bit goes a long way, and I can use the same moisturizer anywhere from 3-6 months, depending on how often I use it.
It's light and very emollient. One review said it stays tacky and sticky--I understand, but I'd describe it as my face staying moist longer. I don't wear foundation usually, and I like the feeling of having a moist face, so this "not sinking in" is not a negative for me, but it's definitely true. My skin does not feel matte afterward.
This product is perfect for my dry skin, and I will continue to use it. I love it.

I adore this product. For me, it was hugely expensive but the first pot I received was a gift. It makes my skin incredibly soft and takes away the redness that I have. I also love the smell and a pot lasts forever, because you only need to use a tiny bit at a time. The drawback is that it does take a while to sink it, but it's something I'm happy to put up with.

I got this moisturizer in a swap and I'm glad I didn't pay the full price for it. This cream is apparently a little bit too heavy for my skin and that's why I use it before I go to bed. It takes quite a long time to sink in and the scent is alright, but it's not an almond scent like the gorgeous Snowcake unfortunately.
Oh well, I'm glad I tried it, but I'll have to stick to my HG moisturizer Celestial!

Of late this has been my winter moisturizer of choice. It's a thick, rich formula, but one that sinks in too, and it smells wonderful! I have problems in the winter with my nose getting very dry and moisturizers making it sting, but this one works wonderfully!

I am so thrilled that I stopped by a LUSH shop and found this lovely cream. I used to be so into LUSH, like 5 years ago. And I moved onto explore other lines but this little ditty brought me right back! It smells delicious and very natural, not artificial. It feels substantial and nurturing, great for night and especially great in the wintertime. I have combination skin prone to dryness and this moisturizer really leaves my skin soft and healthy feeling and no breakouts. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.
The price is up there, especially for LUSH but I did get this as a gift from one of their incredible promotions. It made up for the high cost of their products but I have to say, I would buy this again for the $42 they ask for. I think it's well worth it. I was originally going to buy Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer but I am glad I got this instead. YAY FOR LUSH!

I got a generous sample of this from Lush as I was not willing to fork out the huge amount (NZ$62.50) when I already had two perfectly good Lush moisturisers (Celestial and Ultralight). I am very glad I didn't because although I like the smell, it does not seem to do anything for my skin. Its consistency is a little thinner than Celestial which is a plus for me because I am not a fan of heavy moisturisers but for my dry skin, there did not seem to be any significant change especially for the price. I gave it a 3 because of its beautiful smell and the fact that it will probably be excellent for someone with normal skin as it does leave your face smooth and soft but for me, that feeling did not last; at least not as long as Celestial anyway which I prefer :)

This does moisturise very well and leaves skin smooth and soft. Good for the winter months when skin is prone to dryness. I won't repurchase however as I can't deal with the overwhelming smell of carnation which is not one of my favourite notes.

i originally bought this as a present for my mother, but i found that it works a treat used as a night cream...i have combination skin and when i use it solely on my cheeks, they are so smooth and look almost flawless. I wouldnt personally use this for anything else but a night cream - i think it would overwhelm my skin.

I have normal skin that is not breakout prone. Overall, I love LUSH products but if I"m being honest this is among the worst facials moisturizer that I have EVER tried. It does not sink in, it remains tacky and sticky, and is overall horrible. I have no idea how they package and sell this as a moisturizer... it's that bad. I don't think I've ever written such a bad review but IMO this product deserves it. Sorry LUSH, this is a loser.

Got this on ebay-so needless to say much cheaper than retail-use it on my neck and any dry flaky areas on my face and also on the back of my hands. very emolliant and moisturizing. It absorbed quite well on the areas i use it on. I am very happy with this product, the scent is nice. Would only repurchase from other sources, would not pay full price.

This is a heavy, sweet smelling cream that's great for dry skin. No irritation or breakouts. Not for normal or oily skin, thouogh.

Thank god I got a sample of this! I loved the sweet almond smell, but I found this product to be a bit on the heavy side. After having it on for hours, I found no signs of the greasiness disappearing. It would be perfect for parched skin or a lovely night cream...but was too heavy for daytime use. Also for the price you pay on this thing, I'm sure there are so many other choices out there with the same price range.
