Skin As Soft As Clouds With Lush Angels On Bare Skin Fresh Facial Cleanser

Way back in May I attended an event at Lush's Metro Centre store. I had a fab time at the event learning more about the brand, and some of it's products and generally having a little play (you can find out a bit more about the event here).

The best part of the event for me was helping to make some products, we each made a Space Girl bath ballistic and we helped to make an Angels On Bare Skin Fresh Facial Cleanser, which we got to take home with us.

Angels On Bare Skin is probably one of Lush's most popular products, It's one of several products in their range described as a fresh face cleanser. Throw any preconceptions you had about cleansers being liquidy or creamy out of the window, Lush's fresh face cleansers have broke the mould.

Angels On Bare Skin is basically a squidgy, semi solid substance, which  is made from 100% natural ingredients and contains amongst other things ground almonds, kaolin clay, vegetable glycerine, lavender essential oil, and dried lavender flowers. Since the product doesn't contain water, it means that it can be made without preservatives so it's much kinder on the skin

This cleanser for me is more like a very gentle exfoliator which is designed to improve the skin texture, and appearance. The kaolin helps absorb grease, the glycerine helps soften, the almonds tone and brighten, and the essential oils balance and tone, and in the case of lavender are anti-bacterial.

All you do is take a little bit of the lavender smelling,squidgy cookie dough esq substance in your hands

and mix it with a little bit of water till it becomes an almond milk based paste.

Then gently massage it all over your face. I concentrate specifically on my nose, forehead and chin. It gives quite a good exfoliate but at the same time it feel very gentle and definitely not scratchy.

All you need to then is rinse it off, I usually use warm water and muslin cloth to make sure that I get every little bit off, it comes really easily thank goodness but there is a tendency to get little bits in your hair, so use a hairband. Voila - skin is left clean, soft and bright x

This isn't a cleanser in the conventional sense but it does a great job of keeping the skin clean and clear. I haven't used this everyday but I'm sure it would be fine to do that. I've tended to use this as a night cleanser on the days that I haven't been wearing make up and I've definitely seen a difference in the texture and clarity of my skin, and I've noticed less congestion particularly on my nose and chin which can be prone to the odd blackhead. Yes, it is a little bit messy and bits do tend to fall off but use a hairband and use it over the sink and you'll be fine. I've got quite a few cleansers and exfoliatiors to use up but when they're done I will definitely consider buying this product - It's one of Lush's top sellers and I can see why. Have you used Angels On Bare Skin before? let me know in the comments x Lush Angels On Bare Skin retails at around £6.35 for 100g pot. To find out more please have a look at the Lush website x

  1. Yes I have, and I love it! Every Christmas my sister-in-law buys me a selection of Lush, and this is one that's always on my list. I don't have a Lush very close to me though, so don't get to shop in person very often. Probably just as well, as I would spend a fortune!!
