“Celestial” is the perfect name for this Lush facial moisturizer because it smells and feels just heavenly. I know it’s just so cheesy to say, but it is so true. Celestial ($24.95 CDN) is Lush’s most gentle face moisturizer as it starts with a cocoa butter base blended with vanilla water for retaining moisture, hydrating almond milk and fresh dove orchid extract to keep sensitive skin soft and irritation-free. The scent of vanilla and almond milk is subtle and not overpowering which is again perfect for sensitive skin as fragrance can be an irritant.
The consistency of Celestial is VERY thick and a little really does go a long way!
Final Verdict: My skin type is dry and I often have dehydrated skin, but it is not sensitive. I really only get redness in the winter mainly due to being dehydrated. While Celestial was extremely hydrating, I found it too thick for morning use. I prefer this moisturizer as a night cream as I have more time for it to sink into my skin. Now, that the weather is warmer and a bit more humid, I have had to put this moisturizer away as it is too much moisture for my skin, but based on the ingredient list if you have red, irritated or sensitive skin there is no doubt in my mind that Celestial will soothe and make it feel SO MUCH better!
