Lush Imperialis

When most people think of Lush, I assume that they immediately think about bath bombs, bubble bars & soaps. However, Lush has some amazing skin care offerings, and I've been using their products for years. I've recently started using Lush's Imperialis* ($24.95/45g), which is a facial moisturizer suitable for all skin types, day and night.

"If you’re not sure which moisturizer is for you, we recommend starting here. Imperialis is a finely crafted moisturizer that works with most skin types to ease and soothe irritations. Made with lavender infusion to balance the skin's sebum production, the lavender encourages dry skin to produce more natural oils and discourages oily skin from overdoing it. Orange blossom water brightens up dull looking areas and leaves you smelling gorgeous all day long." - Lush

Lush's Imperialis comes in one of their well known little black tubs. This cream is light pink in colour, and has a medium consistency. I find the scent to be a mix of herbal and lavender, and while it doesn't bother me, it might bother someone with scent sensitivity or very sensitive skin. I don't have major issues with my skin being too dry or too oily, so I really just turn to a facial moisturizer to hydrate my skin and keep it in balance. Lush's Imperialis feels quite luxurious on my skin, yet it sinks in very quickly. I only need to use a small amount of Imperialis, as a little goes a long way. The scent doesn't linger on my face after I've rubbed in the cream, and my skin stays hydrated all day long. I've been using this moisturizer in the mornings only, but once I'm finished my tub of Origins' Night-a-Mins, I'll start applying this twice daily.

Lush claims that Imperialis is perfect for people with either dry or oily skin, and I think that this is true! This moisturizer keeps my skin in balance, and gives great hydration without making me look oily. Of course, you could always ask for a sample of Lush's Imperialis (or any of their skin care items) the next time you're in a store. Have you tried Lush's Imperialis, or any of their other moisturizers before? :)

  1. I haven't tried much of their skincare (slash any?) but I got a small size of Hello Gorgeous in a giftset recently so I will be testing that out...someday! Once I run out of the Clinique one I'm using maybe :)

  2. To be honest I never tried anything from their skincare line but since I like pretty much everything else by them I should give them a try next time. This moisturizer looks amazing!
