Product Description

If you’re not sure which moisturizer is for you, we recommend starting here. Imperialis is finely crafted to work with most skin types to ease and soothe irritations. Made with a lavender infusion to encourage the skin to find balance, this cream encourages dry skin to produce more natural oils and discourages oily skin from overdoing it. Orange blossom water brightens up dull looking skin and leaves you smelling gorgeous all day long.

How to use: Apply a dab onto a clean face for smooth, silky skin.

My skin type is very picky! Not only is it sensitive and acne prone but it is dehydrated but oily. I was afraid to use this because it has shea butter in it and from previous experience shea butter breaks me out in cystic acne but this does not! 

Pros: balanced out my skin, light weight, great brightening ingredients

Cons: leaves your face a little tacky BUT thats what makes it a great primer in the morning!

EDIT/Update: the shea butter does break me out. After further inspection it has left me with tiny baby acne bumps all over my face.

I live for this moisturizer! I use it nightly before bed and along with a regular skin care routine it's been helping cure my acne! It's just the right amount of moisture without feeling heavy or causing me to break out.

The only moisturizer I’ve used consistently over the last 3+ years. It’s perfect for combination type skin and it’s so light and will last you forever because you only need a very small amount to cover your face! The subtle smell is nice as well.

A little pricey but so worth it mine lasted almost 6 months and I repurchased it. A little goes a long way plus it’s all natural which is always a plus and it did wonders with my oily skin

OHHH my god. I LOVE this moisturizer. I have combination skin so I am very wary about moisturizers making my face more oily and break out - but this is PERFECT. It's so refreshing, I use it every night after my double-cleansing routine, it smells great, is non irritating, and overall everything you want from a moisturizer.

This is the perfect face moisturizer for skin like mine. My combination skin tends to become too oily with other brands but eats this moisturizer up. I can use it as many times in a day as I want.

This is one of my favorite moisturizers that Lush sells! If you have oily skin, this is not the moisturizer for you. I have dry, sensitive skin, so this moisturizer is perfect. I'd suggest making this your winter moisturizer, since it is so thick and soothing. It's really great for dry, winter skin.

I absolutely love this product! I've been using it for about 3 years now consistently and find that it helps me maintain super smooth skin without irritating or causing redness. Perfect amount in the container, usually only have a small amount left before the product expires. Highly recommend.

This is my go to, holy grail, cannot love with out moisturizer. I have oily/acne prone skin and this does not break me out, it leaves my skin feeling so hydrated and looking healthy. Not to the point where I look oily and greasy. Wears well under makeup and a little truly does go a long way.

I loved this product. Unlike some moisturizers, this one does not leave your face or hands feeling greasy or oily! Overall the product is extremely effective- some areas of my skin are dry, and others are more oily, but this moisturizer seemed to do the trick in balancing everything out!

Are Lush products worth the price? They seem expensive compared to other similar products.

Do you usually purchase your Lush products online or in store? At our store the workers are almost harassing you to buy a product...

I have dry combination skin. Can get dry on the cheeks but throughout the day my T-Zone, forehead and nose, gets greasy and oily. Does this moisturizer work good for that kind of skin type? I want something that's moisturizing enough that doesn't cause my t-zone to oil-up by the end of the day. Price worth it?
