While this product does leave my skin feeling very smooth, it's nothing amazing. It's a bit tricky to use and it doesn't seem to really clean my skin. I found that I had to wash with another soap first, then use AOBS.
I thakes a while to get used to this product, specially to find out how it works best for you. It took me about 2 weeks before I really knew how to use it well..
I use AOBS every morning under the shower, otherwise it gets really messy. I really like it, since it's the only scrub that doesn't irritate my skin or cause redness.
I don't have a bad skin, but I can see the results of using this product!
After I use it, my skin feels soft and moisturized, and it glows in a good way.
But after 10 minutes my skin gets a bit dry, not as dry as with other scrubs, but I really need to use a good cream.
After that, my skin feels perfect and make-up stays on longer.
I don't really like the smell, but you get use to it..
The price is good, it's not very cheap but it's worth it.
althought it makes my skin a bit dry, I would buy this product again. If you have a good moisturizer there's no problem.
I LOVE this cleanser/mild exfoliant!!! It's a little tricky at first, but you quickly get the hang of making it into a paste with a few drops of water. After 2 months of being under my skincare microscope, AOBS has earned the coveted spot as my HG morning cleanser ;)
It cleanses very well and gives your face a VERY gentle scrubby (not at all abrasive!) massage without drying me out and it really helps to keep my skin clear. My only complaint is that if you happen to get a llittle in your hairline it is pretty hard to get out so I always make sure to wear a headband. I strongly reccomend giving it a try and please don't be turned off by the crazy strong smell that consumes you at the Lush store because AOBS does not have a strong smell at all.
Simply the best face wash out there, period. I have been using Lush for years. I have tried all of their face washes, and this is "The One." Beautiful product, and my face feels soft and not at all dry after washing. It doesn't strip your skin of the natural oils it needs. A HG product.
I love this product!! The container is user friendly, the scrub smells great and it works very well. I do have very sensitive acne prone skin, that is dry in the winter and even thought this is a scrub, it leaves a nice moisture to my face.
The ease of use is lacking..kinda a pain..but still love it.
I wanted to love Angels on Bare Skin, I really did. It smells so fresh and the almonds are ground so finely that it is not abrasive at all. The first and (even second time) I tried it I felt like I had found an HG...which would be a godsend, considering that my face is very sensitive, prone to ruddiness and acne breakouts in some areas. Soon to my chagrin I found a patch of whiteheads that can only be attributed to something occlusive in the scrub, as I tried using the cleanser several more times thinking that the first was just a fluke.
Nope. Unfortunately, Angels on a Bare Skin doesn't work for me. The application is messy and the product is fairly expensive, so I don't feel too saddened; although, this may be the best smelling facial product ever. If you have normal, resistant skin perhaps AOBS might work for you.
This is a nice scrub but as with many LUSH products, I like it mostly for the scent. It's a nice lavender scent. In terms of effectiveness, you could find better scrubs out there that are easier to use, but LUSH products are just plain fun to use. I'll probably keep this in my scrub rotation.
well, i quite like this product, you have to make it into a paste and it takes a bit of getting used to, but once you do its really nice on your skin. It leaves my skin glowy, smooth and silky.
The only down side of this is that if you use to much water to paste it up its just washes away, and the smell is a bit odd.
It also quite expensive for what you get, but i'd probably still buy it.
I love this cleanser. It leaves my skin soft and smooth and is very gentle on the skin. It has crushed almonds in it that provide some exfoliation. It is not harsh at all, the bits are soft on the skin. I use this every night in combination with sweet Japanese girl, (I put on sjg, rub it on for 30 seconds, then put aobs over the top and rub for another 30 seconds) which makes for an excellent facial routine. I usually use aobs by itself in the mornings, because I love how my skin feels after using it. I always make sure to use a toner after I use this, because it does leave a film on my skin, which makes me think it may cause breakouts if used alone.
I find the amount you get for the price to be excellent, a container is about $10.00, and it will most likely last me for 2 months. I
This is a very nice cleanser! I don't usually like Lush products as they are harsh, not really natural, smell plasticky (especially soaps) and extremely expensive for what you get.
Years ago I tried Angels on bare skin, Imperialis (old formula), Rosa Fresca Aulentissima soap and a yellow cleansing milk with saffran. They all were near to HG for my skin. This crap Lush decided to take them all away, but AoBS. I never understood their marketing. I was very disappointed and gave up Lush altogether.
A few weeks ago I got a full "deli" transparent oval package with fresh AoBS, used it again and loved it again!
I have sensitive eczema-prone combination skin with signs of ageing and most products cause me bad reactions.
I switched to all natural Dr.Hauschka and Weleda products which are no miracle but are very gentle.
This cleanser is very gentle but effective. It clearly has soothing properties as my skin becomes less irritated after using it.
I think that this is the effect of lavender and powder. The grains are not harsh. I don't feel that they break my skin like other exfoliators, especially natural ones with nutshell which are never regular shaped.
It scrubs quite well, but I prefer to use it as everyday cleanser in the morning, just massaging it with a very light hand, without scrubbing to hard.
I take off my makeup at night with gentle and effective Dr.Hauschka Cleansing Milk and try to stick to no nightcream regimen, so in the morning my skin has no film, only a few oil in the T-zone and AoBS is just right before my Light Rose Day Cream and makeup.
It takes a little bit to get used to its consistency, but it's not that hard!
I wet my face with lukewarm water, put a small quantity of AoBS in my hand (around 2-3 peas, which actually it's not small!), add water, spread on my hands and put it on my whole face, rub for a few seconds, trying to reach every spot but very very gently. Then I step into the shower and rinse under the water.
After that my skin is clean but not squeaky clean. AsBS leaves a very thin powdery soothing layer and my skin is soft and smooth. It's a little bit expensive but it lasts much longer than Dr.Hauschka Cleansing Cream.
If Lush is going to discontinue this one it's better for them to close shop.
