Love this cleanser! It is my favourite and is one I come back to time and again!
I feel like it calms my redness and my skin feels so soft after. It feels like I am exfoliating at the same time with the texture.
My gripes with it are that the little scrubby bits get in my hair and sometimes I miss washing them out so I look like I have dandruff and that it comes in this pot... you have to be careful not to get water in the pot while pulling out product or you'll end up with water at the bottom and that is just gross.
I highly recommend this product!
I love this product first and foremost because it's environmentally friendly. I'm all for that. The packaging is good too, it's non fussy though more prone to bacterial build up if not taken cared of right. The smell is wonderful, soft and light, very natural and not synthetic whatsoever. The scrubbing particles are soft too so you definitely won't feel anything too abrasive on the skin. As a matter of fact you might have to scrub a little harder to get it to break down your makeup more. It's overall a really great non abrasive light scrub for sensitive skin. I would recommend to wash once and scrub artificially and then wash one more time to get all makeup or residue off.
I absolutely love this product, it really helped balance my skin and didn't leave my skin feeling tight after I used it.
The packaging is a little frustrating so I pop a few uses worth into a sample pot so's not to get the large pot full of water while I'm in the shower/bath etc.
My only real gripe is with the use by date but that's what you get for buying fresh. To use it up I use it as a body scrub too and a nail scrub and it's wonderful for that use too.
It does feel a little odd at first like you're rubbing cake mix all over your face but it is so so worth it.
Love,love, LOVE this product! Every single time I say that I'll change to something cheaper or not so messy, I keep reverting back to AOBS. My skin is combo, acne prone and just a general pain in the arse to look after. But I will never use anything but LUSH products on my face every again
it started out good at first, it gave me really nice and smooth skin. but after 3 weeks, it broke me out really badly. all these weird little bumps started appearing and a lot of clogged pores. it took me a hell lot of time to get rid of all of them. im positive it was this product that was breaking me out as it was the only product i changed. the price is really steep too, wont ever buy it again. really disappointing i must say
l love the smell of lavender. ..it is soothing. I don't know it clean well or not. but it doesn't dry my skin after I wash. I don't think it help with adult acne or not because it did not progress or get rid off my hormonal acne.
Smells lovely- like lavender but it did not clean at all. The light scrubbing of this product feels good (this one does not have sharp pieces like the Dark Angels) but left a film on my face that started causing painful breakouts (small but deep blemishes) within a week of starting daily use. My face also seemed oilier when I was using this product so I think that the essential oils in the formula were simply not rinsing off and that is what was causing the breakouts. Even using their toner afterwards did not completely get rid of it. At USD$ 21 for .335/lb it was pretty expensive too.
I love Lush's soaps and body wash, but so far I am just not impressed with their skincare line.
i love this cleanser!! my skin was the best while using this and i have oily and acne prone skin. i cant wait to buy it again, just gotta work my way through some other cleansers.
I have fairly oily skin with occasional breakouts. I've read a lot about people raving about this product (along with a few others from LUSH) and I haven't been able to find a cleanser that actually does anything to my skin - good or bad. So I decided to give Angles on Bare Skin a go (decided to get a few other products while I was there as well).
Now when I first opened the tub it absolutely stunk - I've always hated the smell of lavender... I was also a bit wierded out by the texture and consistency of the cleanser, I was expecting some sort of paste.
After using it however my skin felt amazingly smooth and it had cleaned practically all of my pours out. My skin no longer feels oily throughout the day and my breakouts have gone right down - I expect this to be better once I've been using it for a while.
Will definitely buy again and I highly recommend it.
I was recommended this product by a Lush SA to help deal with some adult acne. I have dryish, sensitive, combination skin. This product is much too scrubby for me to use as a daily cleanser without irritation - once a week or so is ok. It does seem to be helping to clear and brighten my skin and as far as physical exfoliants go, it's gentler than many. The scent is really, really off-putting though - it's hard to describe what it smells like, but it's bad enough that my boyfriend kept his distance after I used it! I also find it messy and awkward to use - you have to mix the product into a paste before applying it to your face. I've taken to just using it in the shower to avoid making a mess around the sink. I'll probably finish the tub, but won't repurchase.
