Lush Angels On Bare Skin ~ cleanser/scrub for all skin types

Ok, If there is one thing that I use to scrub/clean my face apart from normal face wash then it is this,,it will I guess "always" be this unless something even better comes out or I come to know about it :)

What Lush has to say about " Angels On Bare Skin"

Angelic and medieval cleansing wash with rose and lavender. Angels on Bare Skin is the Lush version of an expensive medieval skincare recipe. Rare, precious essential oils were first brought to Europe by the crusaders who encountered Arabian medicine. They were immediately banned by the church because their ability to alter states of mind was considered the devil's work! But the final result was Cosmetics 1, Church 0. Rose oil and lavender oil were discovered to do wonderful things for the skin, too. Almost a thousand years later you'd be hard pressed to find a better all round cleanser and exfoliator than Angels.

How to use it :

Dampen your face with warm water. Place a pea sized chunk in the palm of your hand and add water to create a paste. Apply to your face using small, circular motions. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry. For rest results follow with the LUSH toner and moisturizer that best suit your skin type.
Ingredients :
  • Ground Almonds (Prunus dulcis),
  • Glycerine,
  • Kaolin,
  • Water (Aqua),
  • Lavender Oil (Lavandula hybrida),
  • Rose Absolute (Rosa centifolia),
  • Chamomile Blue Oil (Matricaria Chamomilla),
  • Tagetes Oil (Tagetes minuta),
  • Benzoin Resinoid (Styrax tonkinensis pierre),
  • Lavender Flowers (Lavendula hybrida),
  • *Limonene,
  • *Linalool
    What it has done for me :
    I have a slightly sensitive skin and had acne problem for around 2 years but now thanks to THIS I am acne free now,, so I really think ten times before buying any cosmetic for my face as I do not want to make any mistake for my skin at this point in my life. 
    Anything that has the world Angel associated with it catches my fancy in a second and same happened with this cleanser,,I did lil research before buying it and I am glad I did. It really works wonder for my skin and after using it I feel like my face is squeaky clean, not even a single trace of dirt remains on my face. 
    It comes in a small tub and seeing it your first impression can be quite ,,ummm,,,,blahhh!! yep this is what I did but since its Lush I had faith in it.

    Only a small amount (as seen in the pic) is required to clean your face and neck at a time. You really have to squish the product in your palm and make a paste with water to apply it on the face. Massage in circular motions all over your face and neck to get optimum results.
    Do not use it extremely close to the eyes.
    Ok now this one not only cleanses my face very well but also moisturize it nicely. I have never experienced any strecthy feeling on my face after applying this even in winters. This has never caused any acne on my face and I give all my love  to it for not doing that.
    I use it every other day , but depending on your skin type you can use it daily too. The fragrance it has is like you are smelling herbs in the jungle :D yup but it disappears fast as soon as you wash it off with water. 
    Always store this one in a cool and dry place and screw the lid tightly after using it.
    After using this you can tone your face and then moisturize it with your normal moisturizer. I skip the toner part here but yes I do use my moisturizer for sure.
    Recommendation : yes please for everyone,,for girls having slight acne issue you can try it too :)
    Personally speaking when I had Acne on my face only this thing saved me and worked wonders ,,I swear by it,,  check it out HERE ,,

  1. I went to the Lush store to buy this and the SA told it is more for oily skin and not me so I didn't buy this one. Are you sure this suits all skin types Namita?

    hmm Aarthi I don't have oily skin and this suits me fine.. my skin is of normal type.
