When I first discovered Lush in August, I fell in love with Imperialis. I don't know how it works, but it works.
I have no idea what my skin type is. It's hard to categorize when people ask oily, dry, combination? All of the above! It depends on a lot of things: the weather, the type of cleanser I use, my level of activity (like when I've just taken a shower after working out and I'm still sweaty), etc.
During the summer months, Imperialis was the perfect moisturizer for me. It was lightweight with a matte finish. My face did not feel greasy. It was easy for me to apply powder immediately afterwards (yes that's all the makeup I wear!) and my face was balanced all day.
And now I know why they call it Vanishing Cream. (: It instantly soaks into your skin. It is so light, yet clears up any dry patches that appear when I get out of the shower. It smells a little like Dream Cream -- must be the lavender -- but I'm getting used to that.
Overall, I'd say you can't choose which moisturizer is right for you based upon my review. You should go to a Lush store, demand samples of all of them, and give them a try. Price-wise, they're cheaper than most department store cosmetic facial moisturizers -- and you'll feel better about using it.
