Review by TheMoonBunny
I have been using this product for about 2 years. Before I discovered this cleanser, I had suffered from severe cystic acne for 12 years. I had gone to a dermatologist and tried various topical creams, birth control pills (orthotricycline), and oral antibiotics/pills. My final option was Accutane, which I refused to use due to overall health concerns. When I was younger, I had very sensitive oily skin, but in recent years I've had sensitive combination skin. I only discovered LUSH because a coworker dragged me into the store with her one night.. One of the gals at the store convinced me to try a LUSH regimen and gave me 2 weeks worth of samples: Angels on Bare Skin, Tea Tree Water (toner), and Vanishing Cream (moisturizer). Within a week, my skin had already started cleared up for the first time in my life. I'm so grateful to this product / to Lush that I've even taken the time to drag up old photos for you so I can show just how much my skin cleared up: http://img.makeupalley.com/8/8/7/1/2331307.JPG In the second two photos, I'm also wearing Bare Minerals original foundation, mineral veil, and and warmth bronzer. PROS --- gently exfoliates sensitive, acne-prone skin --- did not cause break outs (for me, at least) --- leaves skin feeling soft --- easy to travel with because it's a solid cleanser! --- $12 worth lasts for about 3 months (so about $4/month) CONS --- can spoil easily if you let water get into the container (avoid buying more than $12 worth and take a chunk off and store in a different container) --- will not remove makeup --- can be messy when you first buy it because it's a little stiff --- comes in a crappy plastic tub NOTE: If you want to try this, get a sample of it first. Lush is *very* generous with samples. If you ever do buy something from Lush and it doesn't work for your skin, don't be afraid to return it. It doesn't need to be a waste of money! They're very kind and understanding about returns and exchanges.
