I absolutely love aobs. In the past year or so my combo skin (very oily t-zone but chin and areas around mouth get dry andflaky) has become very sensitive to cleansers. So I bit the bullet and decided to try out aobs after a recommendation from my friend who works there. It makes my skin feel very smooth and there is no tight feeling afterwards. It's best to use this in the shower although the packaging is not ideal. I definitely preferred it when it was in the black containers. I would definitely purchase this again because there is a visible improvement in my skin whenever I go back to using this. As for the price, because I live in Australia, drugstore brands can cost similar so it is quite reasonable.
The sales rep recommended me this product and helped me test it out and it seemed to have worked pretty well on my hand. It made my skin feel really soft and clean and I was really excited to test it out on my face. However, when I got home, I realized it was harder to apply onto my face. The product tends to get everywhere. And because I have pretty good skin to begin with, it didn't do anything for me that my 5 dollar cleanser couldn't. But it does smell quite nice and even though I'll be going back to my old cleaner after I finish my AOBS, I definitely don't regret buying it (:
I LOVE thus product. I like lush generally and am mildly addicted seeing as how they are only an eight minute walk from where I live. I had never given AOBS a try or any of there face products a try untill one of the girls tested this out on my hand. I know that is not a maker by which to judge a cleanser, but it made my hand soooo soft! I decided to buy $5 worth of the stuff and immediately fell in love. I have normal to dry skin and this really helps with they dryness. I use it in my morning showers with my clarisonic and my skin has never looked better! It smoothest it out and makes it feel glowy, healthy, clean and really soft. I introduced this to my mom (combination, mature skin) and my two brothers (dry skin and the other oily skin) and they all thought it was great bc it left their skin SUPER soft. It didn't make my brother's (w/ oily skin and acne prone) face shiny or greasy, it gave it a healthy glow.
I am on my second container. I usually buy $5/6 worth and feel it lasts about a month, so in my opinion (and for what it does to my complexion) it is very worth it. The smell took some getting use to but now I love that too. Application is messy so I suggest using it in the shower.
This makes my face look great, I don't use it as often as I should as it is a bit of a faff compared to normal cleansers. One thing I do is keep it in the freezer and just take out a week's worth at a time to keep it fresh - don't think Lush recommends doing this, but it seems OK to me.
I've always ignored LUSH. I thought it was smell over substance. I take that back. This scrub is fabulous. The best i've used so far. Good smell indeed but also good for some very soft radiating skin. Easiest to use in the shower as someone else here mentioned. The container is a little bulgy and you have to scoop bits out of it which can be messy. I'm going to check out more of their products now.
Let me start off with the thing I love the most about this product...the scent...its ah-may-zing!!!!..delicately floral, mildly rosy..a little earthy...
As most of you probably know, this is a cleanser you work up into a paste( and oh! btw, a pea sized amount as Lush suggests, just doesnt cut it..i need twice as much to cover my face and neck area) and scrub clean your face. As a scrub, its well..meh. As a cleanser its better...oh and here I need to mention that I dont really wear much makeup on an everyday basis apart from some eye kohl..so I dont need my cleanser to double as a makeup remover. When I do, this obviously isnt enough....when I wash it off...my face feels moist and fresh. If you like the tight squeaky clean feel after washing, then this probably wont work for you. I follow this up with rose water and a serum+moisturizer and I'm good to go as far as night time routine is considered...
I've been using buche de noel these few weeks..something kinda similar that was released around Xmas, but I'll go back to Angels when I'm done with the pot.
I really like this cleanser its very gentle on the skin and has helped remove the blemishes on my skin after around a month of use my skin is really dry lately and this product leaves my skin smooth and soft definitely my favourite cleanser.
I have oily, blemish prone skin and love products that exfoliate, but I was not impressed by this. I didn't hate it and managed to use it up, but don't feel like it did anything special. I didn't mind the rosemary and lavender scent, but didn't find it particularly appealing, either. I thought it resembled bird poop and the mixture and almond grains got a bit messy in the bathroom. It didn't harm my skin and left it feeling soft, but I don't think did anything beyond that. It simply isn't worth the price to me.
I love this stuff - the lavender whiff of smell and the feel it gives me after cleansing! this is not meant to be a makeup remover people, so don't complain this doesn't remove your makeup, go get yourself a proper makeup remover (oil or wipes!).
My gripes is the packaging - the tub is so tiny and i can see that i will finish my tub in a manner of 1.5 months and the price tag is hefty! Plus the mixing with water before you can cleanse is a bit clumsy and troublesome if you're in a rush in the morning :) but other than that i'll repurchase! Took off one lippie because of the price and the clumsiness when using it.
This gentle cleanser has a nice lavender scent which I strangely like. The price seems too expensive. Almost 11dollars when I live for 100 grams. Althouh the price was a bummer it seemed to work nicely, a peasized amount is all you need! I love AOBS for a daily scrub
