So guys, a Lush Haul was well overdue. It’s been about 3 months since I ventured into my local Lush and BOY was my skin unhappy about it.
I picked up a few different products I haven’t tried before, including one that I have been waiting to try in forever: Million Dollar Moisturiser.
Now I’m pretty late to the party on this one, but what with buying an Apartment, my bank balance wasn’t loving Million Dollar quite as much as the rest of Blog World, so now my trust Clarins Hydra Drench has sadly come to the end of it’s silk smooth life, I thought the time was right to invest in this wonder product so I can see if it really lives up to the hype.
I’m excited to try it!
For those of you who haven’t heard about or used Million Dollar Moisturiser before, it gets great reviews on Beauty Blogs for being a really smooth, non-oily easy moisteriser that hydrates your skin and is brilliant for using underneath make-up. I haven’t heard any bad reviews about it so far, so that’s a good enough reason in my book to give it a go!
I’m pretty picky when it comes to moisturiser. I have quite normal skin I think, but I like moisturisers that I can’t feel or I’m not aware of throughout the day. I don’t like them to make your make up feel heavy or oily as the day goes on. And for that reason I probably try out new moisturisers less than I should.
I used to swear by Clinque’s Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion and I used it constantly, day and night for about 3 years, but I’m fairly sure they changed the formula slightly about 1 year or so ago because it started to feel really different on my skin and not as luxurious (bring back the old formula Clinque!!). SO from there I moved onto Clarin’s Hydra-Drench Day Moisturiser and I’ve really rated it over the past 10 months. The only thing I struggle with is having it on or around my eyes as I think it has a bit of a detrimental effect on eye make-up. As a girl who loves winged eyeliner… this isn’t ideal and so I’ve tended to only use it on my cheeks, chin and forehead to avoid any greasiness.
So all in all, it was time for something new. I’m 26 now and I’m more and more aware of looking after my skin and protecting it as much as possible. Million Dollar is SPF 30 which is brilliant protection for your face throughout the day.
I’ll report back and let you know how I’m getting on and whether or not this really is the holy grail of moisturisers!
Have any of you used Million Dollar Moisturiser before? What did you think? I’d love to hear from you!
