I really like this product, makes my skin soft and smooth, smells lovely, and seems to make my pores disappear. Although not really exfoliating enough for me, used alone, my skin can get quite congested, so I use an exfoliator (ultraceuticals) once or twice a week.
EDIT: this product broke me out & irritated my skin :(
My skin didn't like this, but my sister adores it. This has a cool texture and is gentle. I'm not the biggest fan on the packaging as it doesn't protect the product when dropped (oops). It has a fresh herbal scent and leaves the skin smooth. My skin broke out from using it but that's not an indication of its efficacy as my skin is very reactive and volatile. My sister counts this as her HG cleanser and I keep repurchasing it for her.
Perfect for my sensitive combo skin. Exfoliates very gently with ground almonds, soothes with lavender, moisturizes with vegetable glycerin, and draws out impurities with kaolin clay. A bit annoying to use as opposed to a straight soap, but worth the trouble in my opinion.
I love that this cleanser is completely natural, and it does a good job, and leaves my skin feeling very smooth. I did find it a bit messy, and also it was slightly drying, so would be no good for me in the winter. I probably wouldn't repurcahse, as there are other cleansers that I prefer, but this is definately worth trying, and I think deserves its good reviews.
UPDATE: In the end this was far too drying for my skin, had to stop using it.
A good, fun cleanser.. not HG or anything. Prefer mine with chemicals and all :)
I'm very delighted with this product, i am used to foaming cleaner and find this a bit different to what i normally use. However overall im still quite please with the product. It is very gentle on my skin, i like the fact that it exfoliates my skin at the same time. All you need is a little piece, place on paml and mix with little bit of water and form a paste out of it and just massage into face. After use my skin feels really soft and clean. Very happy with this product. highly recommended.
I bought this cleanser after reading some reviews and deciding it didn't seem to harsh. I have acne-prone combo skin and am in my mid-20s.
I used the cleanser every night for about a month, sometimes I would use it in the mornings also but this was rare. After a week of using it, I was very impressed that it was not drying at all - and my skin would usually become dry after using any type of cleanser. I felt it did a great job of actually cleaning my skin, it felt nice afterwards too.
I carried on using this product and was generally quite happy - as a gentle exfoliating cleanser its quite good and I would recommend it, however, if like me you are prone to spots then I would not expect this product to help. I was hoping the exfoliating action of the almonds would perhaps help unclog my pores but this didn't happen.
Basically, it's a nice gentle cleanser and if you don't have any particuarly skin problems (or only minor ones) then I would recommend it as an exfolilating wash.
I really enjoy using this cleanser. Only because it's novelty... it doesn't clean well and doesn't exfoliate either. I like the fact that it isn't harsh on my skin. I love the smell. Really floral herbal smelling. Strong but really good. Fun product but i wouldn't re-purchase. Kinda of a waste of money but nice if your having a little green spa night and need a moisture mask.
UPDATE: Whoa.....I wrote this review ages ago. Well since my son was born and thirty is around the corner (4 months to be exact) I have sworn off foundation. My skin just looks more vibrant and glows without the stuff and using Angels helps my skin out just that much more. I use it as my morning cleanser and it is fabulous. Doesn't strip the moisture and gives me a gentle exfoliation (aiding in circulation) that leaves my skin clean and glowing? It still seems novelty but it also does deliver. And best of all, simple ingredients. Love
The smell was strong, but a delicious combo of lavender and rose. It looks funky in the plastic tub but works fantastic.
As most reviewers here have made comments on how to use it and etc, Ill elaborate on the results of using > NOTICEABLY soft, supple skin. Pimples, redness and cysts disappeared after 3-4 days of use.
I know some people find it difficult to make it into a paste and all but I find the novelty quite fun and look forward to sniffing the tub and 'pasting' it in the mornings and before I go to work.
I haev been using this cleanser with Tea Tree Water and Cupcake Mask. (which works fabulouso as well btw)
I got a sample of AOBS with my LUSH order. I tried it a couple of times. It was messy to use and took a couple of tries to get it into a consistency to use. I felt like it dried my skin out as my skin had that taut feeling afterwards. It smells fine. I just think it was a little drying. I did read that someone mixed it with cleansing oil and that might work. I think I will continue my quest for a cleanser.
