I think I love this cleanser: it's mild enough plus it does a gentle scrubbing. it smells wonderful and leaves my skin super silky, and I don't need to put a moisturizer afterwards.
I took one lippy off because now that i'm almost at the end of the product it has started smelling strange and even to separate in the container... strange... maybe it's gone off.
(But I already have a new one waiting for me in the shelf!!)
I love this scrub! It smells wonderful and I like the consistency of the mix-it-yourself paste. It's not too harsh, but works well to make my skin glowy and soft. I am not irritated by any of the ingredients. Of course, the packaging could be improved, but I'm not complaining.
I bought this scrub after reading a review in the Lush catalogue. I used it for about two weeks and was very pleased with it until I started breaking out on my forehead. Thinking it was time for something new, I put the cleanser away for a few days and switched to a different cleanser. When I opened the tub again, the scrub had completely dried out and it was turning a violent shade of green around the bottom. I tried washing my face with it once more but it left my face tight and burning. I threw the rest away. What a waste!
Great cleanser, but the packaging is terrible. Also, I personally cannot take the scent of this. Too bad because it works beautifully.
This is the best stuff I have ever used on my skin. Nothing makes my skin glow more. It is crumbly to work with, but the results are more than worth it. I don't know why some reviewers tried to use it to remove eye makeup - why would you put a scrub near your eyes?! The packaging is beyond awful, which is why i took off one lippie, but I dump mine into a plastic jar (from a beauty supply store) and the problem is solved. A tub lasts a year at least.
I love this product, I use it as a cleanser (and that's actually what it is, not a scrub). It is a bit hard to figure out how to use at first but since I started using it I have no breakouts at all. It does not make my face feel tight after using it. It is a bit expensive but well worth it!!
"Angels on Bare Skin is a gentle facial cleanser for all skin types, made to an authentic recipe from the Middle Ages for the use of anyone with a romantic disposition and a wish to be carried off by a knight in shining armor"...quoted from LUSH. Instead of trying to perfect the correct ratio of water to scrub, and picking out the abrasive lavender buds, for the future, I'll satify my "romantic disposition", by sitting in a field of wildflowers, as the sun warms my skin. This might work for ultra sensitive skin types, but if you need to exfoliate dead skin cells, look elsewhere.
I did not like Angels when I first got it, but now that I've figured out how to use it, I love it. I have sensitive, combination skin on my face. I like to wet my face first and GENTLY (not too hard - that was my problem at first) scrub my face. Leaves me soft and glowy. Also, a tub lasts forever, so it's a really great deal.
A great cleanser with lovely scent. It cleanses well especially my pores and yet not drying my dry cheek in winter. Reasonable price but the package not good.
Lovely gentle cleanser which makes my skin smooth and glowy. I agree that it has possibly the worst packaging ever bit it's cheap and lasts ages. I keep coming back to this one, it keeps my combo skin soft and clear.
Update: Gave up on this as it didn't really remove my make up and I found that when I got near the bottom of the pot it irritated my skin (maybe the oils sank) Would be nice as a treatment now and again but as I'm simplifying my routine it's out the window! If you don't wear make up it'll be fine.
