A while ago I received a sample of the famous Lush Enzymion moisturiser. Well, a while ago. I actually got my first Enzymion tester back when I was seriously under aged. But I got another one just a couple of months ago. I tried every last bit of it and obviously I fell in love. So the next time I was about to order something from Lush, I bought a jar of the Enzymion Facial Moisturiser with it. It has been a long time since I got this moisturiser, and I’ve been using it ever since, so this means it’s time for a review. If you’re interested in finding out how I ended up liking this moisturiser and why, make sure you continue reading this post!
Well, well, well. The Enzymion Facial Moisturiser. This little guy comes in a jar. Well actually, it’s one of the famous Lush recycled black pots. The pot contains 45 grams of moisturiser and that’s a pretty okay amount. Not an awful lot, not too little. Perfectly fine. The pot looks cool, I like the aesthetic of it and again, I love the font they use. The pot is nice and lightweight and if you have five empty pots you get a free fresh face mask. Only winning today.
The strange thing is that when I got a sample, the employee got the product out of a black bottle with a pump and not out of a jar. So I wasn’t expecting to receive a jar when I opened up the parcel. The difference can be caused by the fact that I ordered this off of the UK website and I got the sample in one of the stores in The Netherlands. But still, it’s strange. It makes me wonder if there are more differences between the Enzymion from the UK and the one from The Netherlands.
Even more strange is that when I look online, the Dutch webshop does show me it comes in a jar. I don’t get it you guys. Did I get a sample of something else then? I can’t imagine that being true since I stood right next to her when she made the sample for me and told me everything about it.
Okay, enough about the bottle vs pot debacle. Moving on to the moisturiser. This moisturiser is great for people with oily skin or combination skin. It’s lightweight, sinks in quickly and adds the right amount of moisture to your skin. To me it sounded like the perfect deal. Before I’m revealing wether or not I ended up liking it, let’s take a look at the ingredients.
The first ingredient in this moisturiser is organic lemon infusion (refreshing, brightening and degreasing), followed by organic aloe vera gel (softening, calming and protecting), organic cocoa butter (moisturising), organic avocado oil (nourishing), glycerine (locks in moisture), fresh papaya (vitamin A, B and C), cold pressed primrose oil (soothing and creates healthy glow) and wheatgerm oil (soothing).
For the most part this moisturiser is full of oils and butter. It does contain a few other ingredients like alcohol and perfume, which isn’t the best. But those ingredients are at the bottom of the list and because there are so many amazing oils and butters in this moisturiser, I don’t think alcohol and perfume will have a very big effect on the skin.
The thing I love about Enzymion is the scent, but also the fact that it has such a nice consistency. The moisturiser is very lightweight and it’s absorbed by the skin in a split second. It feels very refreshing on the skin and it creates the perfect base for my makeup. Somehow it has an effect on my skin where it makes my skin feel very smooth and silky. It’s not greasy at all, but it is hydrated. I definitely think it’s the perfect amount of hydration for anyone with oily skin. If you have dry skin however, I would stay far away from this because this is definitely not going to save your skin. It’s too light for that.
I can say a million things about this moisturiser, but I think it’s clear that I love it. I love how easy it is to use and how well it works for my skin. It’s literally just perfection. Oh and also, I love how a tiny little bit of this moisturiser goes a long way. More often than not I still take a bit too much on my finger and I have to say that I actually like this moisturiser the best if you don’t use too much. If you use just the right amount all over the skin you get that very smooth and prepped effect that’s great as a base for your makeup.
All in all I’m a big fan of the Lush Enzymion Facial Moisturiser and there’s literally nothing bad I can say about it. I really don’t hate anything about it. It’s the perfect moisturiser for my combination to oily skin and it hits every expectation I had of it. I’ve been using it for a couple months right now and I still love it to pieces. I’ll definitely continue using this for a long time coming. And I highly recommend it to anyone with combination to oily skin who loves a lightweight moisturiser!
That’s pretty much for today. Thank you guys so much for reading today’s post and be sure to let me know which moisturiser is your favourite or go-to these days and why!
