LUSH Review: Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser

For the last few weeks, I have been using Angels on Bare Skin by LUSH. Now I havent used it religiously morning and night everyday. But I have used enough to give a fairly thorough review.

Price:


Fairly decent in my opinion. $9.95 for 3.5 oz.



Texture/Look/Smell:


First off, I have watched many reviews on youtube and such and have seen this product look differently. Mine looks NOTHING like the picture (curtesy of www.lush.com). Mine does not have those bigger dark chunks in it. Also, mine came in one of LUSH's little black tubs with the screw off cap. I have seen some people get theirs in clear plastic containers. Either way, it is the same product. Mine does not have any big exfoliating chunks in it like you see in the picture. The texture of this is basically like a gritty clay. The smell is very herbal but not overpowering. I like it very much and the smell fades fairly quickly once rinsing it off. This product does have oil in it. And while spreading across my face, I can feel the oil. But once I rinse it off and pat my face dry, my skin just feel moisturized, and not oily.


How I Use it:

I take a little more than a pea size amount and place it in my palm. with my other hand, I dampen my face with warm water. Then, I let some of the water drip off my fingers onto the product in my palm. You dont need alot of water to get this stuff working. I would say about 5 drops all together. Then i spread it on my face and massage it aound in circular motions. Then i rinse, and pat my skin dry. I then follow with my toner (witch hazel) and moisturizer.

Overall:

I do really like this cleanser, but I cant speak for if it has helped clear my skin up like some people claim. But it does make my skin super soft and brightens up my skin. I wouldnt really recommend this product to people who have very oily skin. It does exfoliate, but I feel it is just fine for everyday use and isnt overly abrasive.


You can purchase this at www.lush.com


Til next time!
