Light and creamy.
Although it's true that some perfumes can irritate sensitive skin, like stronger spice oils, others are really good for preventing redness and reactions. Natural vanilla absolute is one of them. We use it in Celestial for its soothing effect and intoxicating scent.
Almond milk is wonderful for calming irritated skin. This moisturizer helps to create a light barrier and keeps skin in good condition.
This is my favourite moisturizer during the warmer seasons. My skin tends to be sensitive but normal in the summertime. I have an awful time using moisturizers with sunscreen; I get irritation and redness. Not only does it smell good and leave my skin soft, but it's lightweight enough that it serves as a nice little protective layer before I put on my spf.
I have random outbreaks of eczema on my face and can I tell you this is the best moisturizer for irritable, irregular, sensitive skin! It leaves my skin so soft and pearly-looking. Never had anything else work this well for me!
I've tried a lot of moisturizer's, a few of them LUSH, this is the only one that didn't make my skin feel oily and heavy. It sinks into my skin quickly and leaves my skin feeling amazing! I tend to get oily on my forehead due to my bangs and even in that area this moisturizer doesn't add to that oily feeling. I also love the smell of this, I'm not the biggest fan of LUSH's scents but this is a very subtle vanilla which I absolutely love!!
This is an all around great product. It smells like a milky vanilla, and it leaves my skin feeling very soft. Most moisturizers I've tried tend to sit on top of my skin and leave a layer of oily shine, but Celestial sinks into my skin very quickly and leaves it feeling baby soft.
I've tried my fare share of moisturizers, serums, and combinations and I must say if you do or do not like eco-friendly, all natural products as much as I do you would still love this moisturizer. My skin is sensitive, I don't have acne but I do get minor break-outs now and then. It's also very blackhead prone in areas and my nose is oily although the top of my T-zone is rather dry. I explained this to the guy at Lush and he gave me a sample of Celestial...that was months ago and I've been buying and using it since then. This is my all time favorite moisturizer.
It smells lightly of vanilla and maybe bananas, it's soothing and balancing for my combo-skin, a little goes a long way especially if you use a toner with it. The consistency is that of a light lotion, I use a Lush toner with mines and just a dab warmed on my fingertips covers my face, I can and will use this all year and even works at night I just use a little more or a sealant.
My boyfriend purchased this moisturizer as part of a "new leaf" he was turning over, but gave it to me when he realized daily moisturizing was more than he bargained for (I know, what?!). But! I'm glad he did! The sales girl recommended this for his oily, blemish-prone skin as a light, barely-there moisturizer, but it works miracles for my dry, irritated face as well. It goes on rich and smooth and absorbs quickly enough for me to apply my makeup almost immediately. I need only a fingertip's worth for each cheek and my forehead (three fingers in all), but use a little more at night so it seeps in while I sleep.
This will probably be a little too heavy during the summer, but for winter it is absolutely perfect--and can I just add, is smells amazing? Just like almond milk, or unsweetened almond paste!
I loved this moisturizer. I have very sensitive, dry skin with eczema, and I've been looking for a good moisturizer that I can use without it irritating my skin. I went to a LUSH store after doing extensive research into a good moisturizer to buy, and surely enough, I was recommended Celestial. I bought it home and used it, and it was love at first sniff, as the people at LUSH would say! Not only does this moisturizer improve the overall texture and look of my skin, but it smells absolutely heavenly. I love this! There's absolutely no way that I'd be able to live without this moisturizer now that I've tried it!! Some people say that it's a bit heavy, but since my skin is really dry, I find that it's perfect.
I realised some years ago that I got on better with organic/ naturally derived face creams to combat my eczma than regular high street brands. I used to find that normal excma creams sat too heavily on my skins surface, leading to an overly oily, often broken out apearance. On a whim I used an organic cream and found it to be much lighter, and allowed my skin to breathe. So with this in the back of my mind, I tried Celestial as an alternative. Admitedly upon first impressions, I thought the cream would be far far too thick for my liking, but I was swiftly proven wrong. Within seconds the cream just melts into a milky like substance, bledning effortlessly all over the skin, and is absorbed within seconds, leaving no greasey residue. Best of all for me, it takes the tightness straight out of my ecczma, always usefull for those of us who like to have facial expressions! Lovely cream, would definately reccomend! xxx
let's just start off by saying its called Celestial for a reason. I use this morning and night and with my color supplement foundation. I use this after I wash my face with angels on bare skin and my face feels like heaven. I love this moisturizer. I can't get enough of it! I will be purchasing and I highly recommend this!
In the past weeks I've been having the most difficult time with my skin. It's been irritable, dry, flaky, and above all covered in spots! I went on a hunt for a moisturizer that would be able to calm my skin and not make it sting like the other drugstore moisturizers I've been using and this "celestial" of a product did everything that I had hoped for! It has just the right consistency of being thick and breathable at the same time. It most certainly doesn't hurt that it smells divine!
