Review // Lush Million Dollar Moisturiser

When I finished my last Lush moisturiser (Celestial, since you're asking), I headed back to Lush to try a new one. My favourite was British Nanny but it was discontinued last year, so I had to settle on a different equally-as-thick moisturiser. I was with Helen at the time and she tried convincing me not to buy this one. I didn't listen and, as I would soon realise, that turned out to be a mistake.

Lush Milion Dollar Moisturiser Review
FRAGRANCE

At first, Million Dollar Moisturiser has a pleasant creamy scent with a blend of jojoba oil, shea butter and honey. Combined with tonka, lavender and sesame oil, the overall effect is a warming, almost vanilla-like fragrance. However, for reasons that I am yet to understand, when I start applying it to my face, it smells exactly like Savlon. Not exactly the luxurious effect that the name would suggest!

CONSISTENCY & APPLICATION

What really drew me towards this moisturiser, if I'm honest, is the iridescent shimmer to it. I'm not sure how it's created but it glistens like a mermaid's tail and I got a bit carried away! Then, of course, there's the fact that it's super thick and my skin needs all the nourishment it can get. Unfortunately, it's way, way too thick. When applying, it's gloopy and I find it very difficult to rub into my skin evenly. In fact, it applies exactly like sunscreen which may have something to do with the fact it's SPF 30.

RESULTS

Don't get me wrong, I love a sunscreen but I was looking for a moisturiser with SPF, rather than a sunscreen with some moisturising qualities. I have found that it's doing a good job of protecting my skin- no redness or sensitivity here, even when I've been in the sun- but, bizarrely considering the thick consistency, I haven't actually found this moisturiser as nourishing as the others I've tried. What's more- that shimmer doesn't even transfer onto my skin.
Lush Million Dollar Moisturiser SPF Review
Remember the Lifesaver sunscreen I was horrifically allergic to (and strangely wasn't brought back the following summer)? Million Dollar Moisturiser seems to be a replacement for this. It's going to be great to have on hand in the summer but I won't be using it as my daily moisturiser.

  2. Such a shame to hear this wasn't great. I've yet to try a Lush facial moisturiser but I'll steer clear of this one I think! x

  4. Aw, that's a shame that it did not really nourish the skin :( I guess at least it gave some protection xo
