The late, great Princess Diana of Wales was a loving mother, a devoted philanthropist, a style icon… and a cosmetic connoisseur?

It’s true, according to Lush Cosmetics. In fact, the natural beauty brand just revealed that the princess was such a huge fan of their products that one was made specifically for her. (Learn even more fascinating facts about Princess Diana.)

Lush says that back in the day, co-founder Mark Constantine met with the Princess of Wales to learn about her skincare routine. Out of that meeting (and a bit of royal expertise!), the formula for Lush Gorgeous Moisturizer emerged. And it’s still a fan favourite today—despite its lofty price tag. Don’t get us wrong, though; this skincare splurge is worth every buck. (This is the real reason Diana got her iconic short haircut in the 1990s.)

What makes this moisturizer fit for royalty? For starters, it contains cold-pressed organic evening primrose oil to leave your complexion as soft as Lady Di’s. It also mixes a carefully concocted infusion of organic orange blossom honey and extra virgin olive oil. Thanks to its airy texture, Gorgeous Moisturizer is light enough to act as a canvas for your day’s makeup. Apply it at night after you cleanse and tone your face, and it’s guaranteed to make your skin glow. Talk about beauty sleep!

Even if you struggle to mimic Duchess Kate’s luscious locks, you can still rock a royal look thanks to the skincare genius of the People’s Princess.
