Overview

How moisturizing is it? Quite moisturizing. Lush Breath of Fresh Air has a moisturizing rating of 5.0 out of 10.

Is it more humectant or occlusive? Purely humectant. It has a maximum Humectancy of 10.0 out of 10 and zero Occlusivity (we didn't find any occlusives on the ingredient list).
Tip: Studies suggest that humectants alone do not moisturize the skin. We recommend applying a product with some occlusive ingredients after the use of this one.

What else is good about it? Lush Breath of Fresh Air is rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants are believed to reduce the oxidative stress caused by free radicals, thus preventing accelerated skin aging.
