I was gutted when I found out Lush had discontinued British Nanny, my favourite moisturiser. While mourning, I was offered Celestial in a blog sale and snapped it up. I'm glad to report that it's every bit as lovely as my beloved British Nanny!
As usual with Lush moisturisers, Celestial is packaged in a 45g black pot with a twist top. It's secure and leak-proof, and the flattened pot makes it convenient for travelling. As a black pot, it's also part of the Lush recycling scheme in which you can exchange 5 pots for a free face mask.
You know Ben and Jerry's Cookie Dough ice cream? Celestial smells just like that! The vanilla ingredients give it a warm, creamy note which is complemented with almond oil and cocoa butter for that cookie dough-esque fragrance.
CONSISTENCY & APPLICATION
Bear with me here. The consistency of Celestial is smooth and whipped, almost exactly like beaten egg whites. It's a very light but a little goes a long way, although you may need some extra product on particularly dry patches. This light formula means it's very easy to apply, absorbed quickly and leaves my skin feeling really smooth.
Although I prefer a heavier moisturiser for winter, I know Celestial is going to be a staple of my spring/ summer skincare regime!
