Angels on Bare Skin is a solid cleanser for gentle skin by Lush. When I say a ‘solid cleanser’, that means you take a pea sized piece of the cleanser and mix it with a small amount of water to make a paste and then apply to skin. The cleanser is inspired by a medieval recipe with rose and lavender and it looks and smells a little medieval to be honest but don’t let the smell/appearance put you off.
Once mixed with water the cleanser has small granules to gently exfoliate the skin. As someone who has perpetually sensitive skin as well as combination skin, I was unsure how my skin would react to this cleanser but just after a few washes my skin felt softer, less agitated and had none of the tightness other cleansers had caused.
While the cleanser looks a little scary in the pot, it really does do everything it says on the pot. Another perk is that a little of the cleanser goes a long way.
Recently, I toddled into my local Lush store for the very first time and purchased a few delicious smelling goodies. One of those goodies was a Lush lip balm called Honey Trap which comes in a cute little silver tin. Lip balm are quite possibly one item I buy on a very frequent basis. I don’t have overly dry lips but I tend to lick my lips a lot if I don’t have a balm on hand and this really dries my lips out. I usually apply lip balm as part of my nightly routine so that everything including my lips are well moisturised.
Honey Trap is a delicious smelling balm which is made up of white chocolate and honey. For me it is super moisturising and lasts a good while before I re-apply and I tend to re-apply frequently but I haven’t even made a dent in the amount of product in the tin so this leads me to believe that the balm will last me for a while.
Ultimately, would I repurchase this particular lip balm? Definitely, this to me seems to be one of the better lip balms on the market which actually does its job. I highly recommend this balm.
I’ve read a lot of blog posts and watched a lot of youtube videos in which people talk about and rave about Lush and their products but so far I have resisted going into the store myself. You could say I’m somewhat of a Lush virgin. But yesterday I decided to go into my local Lush store just for a little looksey, a little window shopping. Let me just say first off that the store smells heavenly, although if a lot of strong scents don’t sit well with you then you probably wouldn’t agree with me. As a Lush newbie, I wasn’t too sure where to start but the girls who work there were lovely and very helpful without being pushy, they even gave me two free soap samples even though I said I was merely looking. In the end I did make a purchase which I am very happy with.
The first thing I got was Angels On Bare Skin which is a solid face cleanser. I thought I would try this because I have problem skin in that it is sensitive, prone to breakouts, oily on my T zone and dry around my nose and cheeks and the myriad of over the counter products I have tried have not appeared to help improve my skin. All Lush products are made from natural, organic ingredients and the Angels On Bare Skin is based on a recipe originating from the Medieval period.
Next up is the Eau Roma Water which is a facial toner which can be used as a spray directly on the face or applied using a cotton pad.
The final item I purchased was a lip balm which is something I always carry as my lips get quite dry – this lip balm is called Honey Trap which is a combination of honey and white chocolate and smells amazing and tastes just as amazing.
From my first encounter I am really impressed with Lush, with both their products and their service.
