I don't like lavender. But I have learned to tolerate it in order to keep using AoBS. It has calmed my rosacea down to the point where it's barely noticeable. Enough said.
ETA: Sadly, I've had to change my rating of AoBS from 5 to 3. After using it about 1.5 months, it caused my face to start breaking out in tiny bumps, particularly on my forehead and around my mouth. My aesthetician said this can happen with almonds/almond oil, a primary ingredient in this product. Also, my rosacea went back to the way it was before I started using AoBS. As soon as I stopped using it, the bumps went away. Rosacea is no better, no worse. Pity it didn't work out, since it made my face feel so soft! I hope it works better for other people.
Didn;t impress me in the least...stinky and hard to manage in that crap container. I got it all over the sink, myself and then some on my face. So glad I only got a sample. But at least I didn't use it on my body in the tub like Aphrael813! LOL
I also wanted to love this, having heard rave reviews all over Australia. It's nothing more than a handmade scrub with irregularly shaped grains than can scratch the skin, and most of it is some weird starchy, muddy emulsion that doesn't clean very well while hinting of oil. Made my shower really messy with all the mud too, and you have to use quite lot each time. Would stay away from it as far as possible.
I wanted to love this,I really do.Felt good and pampered my skin while I slathered it on,but made me break out the next day.Guess it works on others but not on me.=(
I've been using this for a year now and it's a fantastic products. It can be use as everyday cleanser or scrub. It's smells great too - Lavender and almond. I use this on my body too when i'm out of body scrub/cleanser and works wonder!!
I love this product, it gave me a radiant look and really smoothed out my skin.
I find it a bit messy to use, but it works really well so I am willing to forego that.
The packaging was very boring, mine came in a clear plastic tub with a white plastic lid, but the product is great, I would recommend it to anyone of any skin type.
I love angels, i have been a repeat buyer now for 2 years. i use it daily as a cleanser followed up by go old sorbeline cream and i have been pimple free since i started this routine. No fancy creams have ever been as effective for me as this combo!
I am so glad that I read some of your reviews. I went out to get this about 2 weeks ago, and I am so glad to have got it. This stuff is amazing. I am a fan of lavender, though first time use, I thought it was a little too strong. Now I get so relaxed and happy smelling it. ;)
I use about a size of a dime, and make it into a paste with a little bit of water before putting it on my face, and neck. It leaves my skin supple and soft. I wish I had this sooner! Now I won't live without it! ;) ;) ;)
Although this isn't anything very special to look at and the smell is a tiny bit too strong for me, whenever I use it on my sensitive skin, it is always absolutely silky and smooth and looks radiant and glowing. My face feels clean and oil free and for me it has really good results and I like it a lot, particularly when followed by celestial moisturiser. When I first used this combination my skin was softer than I had ever felt it. It really is a great product and I highly recommend it.
This is one of my HG items. ALthough the packaging isn't anything more than a to-go salad dressing container, what's in the container more than makes up for it. I absolutely adore this scrub for after I've washed off my m/u. It leaves my skin feeling clean, fresh, and oh-so-soft. I'm not wild about the fragrance, but I can get past that b/c of the wonderful results I see. This is the only item I have CP for me on a regular basis!
