Lush Emzymion Face Cream
Advantages: Lovely smell and got rid of the dry bits of skin
Disadvantages: Too greasy for my oily skin
I am a huge fan of Lush and nearly everything they sell is fantastic. One of the things that they sell that I'm not so keen on is their range of facial moisturisers. Their body moisturisers are nearly all great but with the facial ones I have never really had much luck with them.
The Enzymion facial moisturiser is made for oily skin and has ingredients which sound like they wold be lovely on my skin such as lemons, aloe vera, papaya, avocado oil and cocoa butter but my skin didn't really get on very well with this particular moisturiser.
I have oily skin which can get worse during my time of the month and when I'm stressed so I was hopeful that this would be light enough to stop my face getting greasy looking but rich enough that it would still moisturise it and leave it feeling soft and smooth.
I just didn't feel like this was good enough for oily skin. My skin never really felt like it was particularly matt while using this and I still got a lot of shine and grease at the end of the day. It actually felt a little rich for oily skin and it actually gave me spots while wearing it.
The one good thing about this is that it did soothe the dry bits of skin that I have but it's just a shame that it also left the other areas of skin still looking so greasy and shiny.
I wasn't a fan of the consistency either as it was really runny in comparison with the other moisturisers from lush that I've used. If it had come in a bottle I wouldn't really have minded this so much but being in the plastic tub it made it a little awkward to use.
It did smell absolutely gorgeous though and was lovely and lemony which was subtle but I could smell it coming from my skin for a few hours and I always found it to be a lovely clean and refreshing smell.
It is a shame that this is getting such a low score from me as I really wanted to like it but unfortunately on my skin it just didn't work and actually ended up making my skin more greasy than when I started.
Summary: Nowhere near as good as the body moisturisers
