Moisturisers are a very personal subject matter. It’s likely that you and every other female in your circle would name a different moisturiser as their holy grail product, and that’s what makes the beauty industry such an exciting field to work (or dabble in).
Now I’ve tried my fair share of moisturisers. Some I’ve adored, others I’ve discarded after just a few uses, and several have been left in my beauty cupboard until they’re totally dried up and make their way to the bathroom bin.
It’s safe to say I’ve tried a good number of moisturisers (although not as many as some), and so today I wanted to share my experience using a moisturiser I would class as the best I’ve ever used. Quite a claim I know.
The Lush Million Dollar Moisturiser is my everyday go-to moisturiser and has been for the last 7 months. For me, nothing has come close to rivaling it’s brilliance in the last 7 months and if that’s not worth sharing, I don’t know what is.
The interesting part of my love story with this little pot of magic is that at first and the first week I used it, I didn’t like it and was ready to give it all up. I thank the moisturiser Gods that they steered me back on track.
First up, let’s talk about what it does to my skin. I wear this moisturisers throughout the day, and at the moment most nights as well. It is extremely hydrating and nourishing and my skin really does feel protected. My skin is softer than it has ever been, and any sign of a blemish is gone the next day when I use this stuff. I’ve had enough blemishes/spots/breakouts in my life to know when a product really works wonders on a problem area and this isn’t just some mindless sales pitch. If I see a spot emerging, I make sure I’ve got a good dose of this on overnight and the next day it will be retreating without ever having really presenting itself in the first place. I really do swear by this product and my skin has never felt in such good condition.
Secondly let’s talk texture. The texture of this product is thick, creamy and luxurious. It applies beautifully and really feels like a protective layer being added. I would say it tends to stay slightly tacky to the touch for a good few hours after application – not visibly so, just so that if you were to touch your face you’d be aware of the product. It is so hydrating but as someone who tends to struggle with the odd attack of oily skin, this product doesn’t leave me shiny, despite how thick and hydrating it appears to be. It naturally has SPF30 built in, which is just a dream when it comes to moisturiser. It’s so important to protect your face every day from the sun, even if it’s cloudy and there’s not a ray to be seen. The fact that I don’t have to worry about sunscreen protection when I’m using this is a massive bonus.
The third and final reason I love this moisturiser and will preach about it all day and night is the unbelievable smell. It smells like a million dollars. I’m not even sorry about punning the hell out of it. It’s a heady mix of cocoa, shea butter and honey and it really is heavenly. It really does have a signature scent that I for one fell in love with immediately.
I haven’t tried any other of Lush’s moisturisers so I don’t know how they compare, but if Million Dollar is anything to go by, they know their stuff when it comes to skincare.
If you’re interested in trying this moisturiser, just visit your local Lush and ask for a sample – I absolutely love that the company is so open to samples and it means you can try the product for a few days before investing.
This moisturiser is on the pricer side, costing £32.50 for 45g of the stuff. However one pot roughly lasts me 5 months, and when it comes to skincare I think it’s worth paying the price.
Have you used Million Dollar or any other Lush moisturisers before? What should I try next?
