Lush Angels On Bare Skin
Advantages: So many I cant list them, give it a try!!!
Disadvantages: None whatsoever
As described by Lush, Angels on Bare Skin is the Lush version of an expensive medieval skincare recipe. I first tried this product a year ago and has since become one of only a handfull of products I can not live without. Those of you who know me will know how much Irate this product as I love trying new products so for me to stick with just one for so long speaks volumes!
Angels on bare skin can be purchased from Lush stores or via the website and costs £5.50 at the time of writing. The face wash comes in a little black pot similar to the other black pots lush's products come in which all you other lush addicts out there will be familure with. The cleanser contains rose oil and lavender oil which are well known for being great for your skin, allong with other ingredients listed on the pot itself and also on the website, or for anyone who's interested they are as follows...
Ground Almond (Prunus dulcis), Glycerine, Kaolin, Water (Aqua), Lavender Oil (Lavandula angustifolia), Rose Absolute (Rosa damascena), Chamomile Oil (Anthemis nobilis), Tagetes Oil (Tagetes minuta), Benzoin Resinoid (Styrax benzoin), Lavender Flowers (Lavandula angustifolia), *Limonene, *Linalool}
*Occurs naturally in essential oils
The face wash is unusual in that its consistency is not what you would expect, rather than being in liquid form or gel form as you would probably expect, the cleanser is solid. Upon opening the pot you are instantly met with a beautiful scent of lavender with undertones of rose, The cleanser is folled as pictured above and put into the pot sideways so you see a spiral of it when you open the lid and sometimes it has the lavender buds throughout the mixture as pictured above, or sometimes it is simply sprinkled on the top.
The immage shown above is fairly accurate as to the appearance of the product but of course as the products are natural products the colour can sometimes vary a bit and can sometimes be a pale grey and other times can be more of a greeny/grey. No mater the appearence though the product always worksthe same.
Directions for use of the product are written briefly on top of the lid and state you should take a pea sized amount and mix it with a little bit of water in the palm of your hand to create "almond milk". I always use a small pea sized amount and two small drops of water and this is sufficient for a paste which is not too runny and is easy to cover your whole face in and massage arround to cleanse and exfoliate with the gently gritty mixture.
The wash feels fantastic on your skin as it is gently and the scent is lovely first thing on a morning to wake you up, but at the same time it is relaxing to use before bed as it is lavender so great for using twice a day. I usually massage the mixture into my skin for around 30-50 seconds and then rinse off, immediately my skin feels softer, cleaner and amazingly smooth. It is never left tight, over dried of agravated and this is an amazing acheivement as my skin is terrible because of treatement I have for a medical condition I live with. After first using this product after only two weeks I did not have a single spot or blemish for the first time in years and people commented my skin was glowing, and have commented to do so ever since. This is the only face wash I will now use and wish I had found it sooner because I think I must have tried every product boots has to offer before finding this amazing product. I have been using this for a year and 4months and it still does the same amazing job it did the first time and would recommend it to anyone with problem skin to at least give it a try. If thisis not the product for you then lush have a whole range of skincare products and the assistants are very helpfull and will help you choose the right one for your needs if you can pop into a store.
When I first bought a pot of this I thought it was expensive for such a small pot, however a little goes a long way and I use this twice a day every day and the pot lasts me 4 or 5 weeks every time so it really works out really good value, especially compared to the other very expensive products I tried before this without success!
It is also worth noting that if you return five clean pots to a lush store they will give you one of there fresh face masks for free, these normally retail between 5-7 pounds each so this is a great offer so definately worth while hanging onto your empty pots and returning then for recycling, not only are you doing your bit for the environment, you get an extra fab lush treat for free to try (I highly recomment Love Lettuce face mask if anyone is interested!).
The results have been amazing for me and I would recommend this without a doubt. After trying so many products without any luck for so long this has done wonders for my confidence and its such a nice product to use I look forward to having lovely feeling skin after using it each and every time.
Summary: I finaly found this wonder product after trying so many expensive/useless products for two years!!
