Interesting product. Left my skin soft, but I will not repurchase because I find the clay-like texture difficult to use.
This smells so lovely that is a real sensory delight to use first thing in the morning. It is mild & non drying I use this when my skin is not spotty & switch to Herbolism when it is, so cheap (in the UK) & lasts for ages, a nice gentle cleaser/scrub. I can't understand why people say it is difficult to use, it isn't but if you don't want to invest a minute more cleansing your face this isn't for you. Personally, I like the fact it isn't full of artificial fillers& emulsifiers, the ingredients are gentle & pure.
This is one of the few LUSH skincare products I adore! It smells heavenly and once you master the correct water to product and mixing techniques it does a nice job on the skin. It didn't over-dry my skin nor did it make it oily either. The lavendar seeds can be a little harsh if your skin is sensitive, so just remove them after you mix it up and you should be okay. A little goes a long way too. You won't need much to get good results. My skin doesn't feel tight after use either. I wouldn't recommend this for very good makeup removal, but it's great for calming the skin.
I received a generous sample of this from LUSH and love it! You just take a small amount and mix it in your palm with a tiny bit of water and get a paste. This leaves my skin soft and clean. It feels really good when you use it, kind of refreshing. It has lavender which smells really nice. I've been using this for a little over a week and my skin is clear! No breakouts!
I relaly like this stuff, though there are definitly better exfoliators out there. I like the smell and its makes my face relaly soft after. however, sometimes i still have dead skin after using it, which is annoying. so although its not the greatest exfoliator, it does smell nice and leavs skin very soft and smooth
Where have you been my whole life? I just started using this- I've had a very good run with SSC Glycolic cleanser- but still wanted to give this a try, and boy am I glad I did!
It comes in a little tub and reminds me of a mold experiment I did in grade school! You tear off a little chunk and mix it with water... then apply to your face and enjoy the wonderful lavendar smell! It really reminds me of the burts bees scrub! Deliciousness! It scrubs nicely w/o being too harsh and wowo does my skin feel so good afterwards! This is a keeper for me *along with my ssc g.cleanser*
I love this product, used it a few days ago at a friends house and went out and bought it today. I think this product is for people with dry or dry/normal skins, it might be too moisturising for some people to use twice daily. Also this product should not be used as a scrub, it is a cleanser with scrubby bits not a scrub.
The packaging isn't great but it does the job and i'd rather not pay extra for a fancy box that i'll throw away.
A note to the reviewer below, its a good idea to read the insutuctions before using a product, you take a small piece and mix it with water in the plam of your hand to make it liquidy. The reason its in a solid form is to cut down on preservatives.
I would give this a 5. I just got hold of AOBS today, and I cant wait to use it during bath. After I removed my make up, i picked up pea size amount and smooth them on my skin. And I went on to wash my body before i do mild scrubbing and rinse off. My skin is sensitive, so i was quite worried this might sting my skin abit, but it didnt, and no redness also. It left my skin feeling soft and smooth, not tight at all. You called it a scrub? I think not. It's more than scrub. Just one great product. 2 thumbs up! Will repurchase.
It isn't a spectecular looking or smelling product, but it works fantastically on my sensitive skin. I agree on the packaging though, it's terrible.
Mmmm perfection in a cleanser!! This suits my combination skin to a t! It exfoliates, cleanses and moisterizes at exactly the right levels to be usable morning and night and is totally affordable for me. I love the fact that it contains lavender and rose extracts - both great for clarifying and soothing the skin. I would prefer this if it came in better packaging, however...
