Lush Angels On Bare Skin
Advantages: No chemical ingredients
After some time with unpredictable skin I have now finally got skin which does not have hardly any break outs and does not give me any problems like it used to. I have tried many of the lush products and like how they try and go for all natural although they do use some preservatives which I avoid. While I was in a Lush store I was buying a few things and the staff member asked if I would like a sample of the angels on bare skin cleanser as she explained that it was one of the most gentle cleansers that they made. I have found that Lush are good for giving a sample of their products which I like as if you know that they work and do not react with your skin type you will most likely go back and purchase the product.
This cleanser is meant to be one of the most gentle on the skin making it perfect for anyone with redness or sensitive skin who do not want to use products that will react with the skin.
This cleanser contains a very limited number of ingredients which I am very impressed with and there are chemical ingredients. The ingredients are;
Ground Almonds, Glycerine, Kaolin, Water, Lavender Oil, Rose Absolute, Chamomile Blue Oil, Tagetes Oil, Benzoin Resinoid, Lavender Flowers, Limonene, Linalool.
Each ingredient has its own job to do. The ground almonds provide a very gentle exfoliating action, the glycerine helps to soften skin, kaolin is a soft clay which helps to exfoliate and cleanse. Lavender oil is antiseptic, antibacterial and is very calming on the skin, rose absolute helps to calm skin irritations, chamomile blue oil is very calming and is also antiseptic and helps to calm the skin. Tagetes oil is anti fungal and antimicrobial helping keep skin clear, benzoin resinoid is a natural preservative derived from the styraceae tree, lavender flowers add a lavender scent and add a natural exfoliating action, limonene is a natural fragrance which is added to the cleanser and linalool is a natural fragrance from ho wood oil.
I have used this cleanser for a week now and it is very gentle. Just put a little in the palm of your hand and mix with water. Instantly it turns to a milk consistency, rub it on your face and thats it, cleansed and very gentle on your skin. At £6.25 for 100g I think it is very good value as you are not rubbing chemicals on your face. Everything is natural and it works. A good cleanser to keep your skin clean and clear.
Summary: A very good gentle cleanser which contains no chemical ingredients
