What LUSH says: “We’re about to tell you something that might sound contradictory. If you have oily skin, you need to moisturize your face! It all comes down to skin care basics; if your face is oily, it’s compensating for something. Set things right with Vanishing Cream. Our lightest blend, Vanishing Cream contains balancing lavender absolute, pore-tightening witch hazel (which helps brilliantly with eliminating blemishes) and grape seed oil to soften. Use daily to balance oil production for even, clear skin.”
I’ve always hated moisturizers that cling to your skin and never seem to really sink in. My face absolutely abhors them and immediately lets me know by breaking out. I’ve tried countless moisturizers over my acne years, and my face has never been happier with a moisturizer than with this one. I’m pretty sure it’s a magician because it does a vanishing act every time I use it, and all it leaves behind in its wake is a face as soft as silk.
The first time I used this moisturizer, it was right after I had tried out all of my new LUSH products, and let me tell you, I was ecstatic. I could not stop touching my face! My face felt balanced, looked supple, and so, so smooth! There was no greasy look in site! It’s perfect to wear even under makeup because your skin just drinks it up and it never makes your makeup slide off your face like other moisturizers do. I use it mainly at night since I use my Clarins Beauty Flash Balm and sunscreen during the day, and even though it isn’t the heaviest moisturizer, my face hardly ever feels dry when I wake up in the morning. Even though this moisturizer is the lightest formula that LUSH sells, it still moisturizes dry, sensitive skin. Although, if you do suffer from terribly dry skin, this is not the moisturizer for you, it’s simply not made to handle that. LUSH has amazing other moisturizers for you to take a look at. However, if you are acne prone, Vanishing Cream is the only one in the entire lineup that can help you because the rest have cocoa butter which can severely clog your pores. I used Enzymion during the day all summer long thinking it would be perfect since it absorbs oil and I had no idea that it was contributing to the horrible cysts I was getting (along with my makeup I later found out). My sister had a similar reaction to Celestial when she used it. Once I stopped and just used Vanishing Cream, my face immediately calmed down and I saw no more cysts. I’m on my third tub of this and I don’t see myself getting another moisturizer anytime soon.
If you have oily, acne prone or sensitive skin and have been struggling to find a moisturizer that won’t aggravate any of it, head into LUSH and have a look at this. I hope you’ll love it as much as I do!
