Angels on Bare Skin is one of those well-loved products from Lush that people are always recommending, so I was delighted to be given a chance to try it out along with some other goodies from the cruelty free brand. This is a solid cleanser for the body but is gentle enough for your face too, so- bonus! Made with 100% natural ingredients; including ground almonds, chamomile blue, lavender oil, rose absolute and topped with lavender flowers, this does unsurprisingly smell strongly of lavender so if you're looking for a soothing cleanser to ease you off to sleep at night, this is your only man.
As it's a solid cleanser, you have to mix it with water to form a paste. In doing so the ground almonds create almond milk which brightens and tones the skin and also acts as a gentle exfoliant. It also containing Kaolin, which absorbs dirt and grease, leaving the skin clean and nourished. Lastly, the lavender, chamomile blue and rose absolute soothe the skin.
While this smells lovely (if you're a fan of lavender, obviously), my only gripe with this is that it can often feel like slightly too much effort to use it; making it into an effective enough paste so that it doesn't just crumble away from you when you go to use it can be time consuming and if I'm honest, I try and spend as little time cleansing at night time as I can due to pure laziness. Having said that, this is a really nice treatment for when I do want to take my time and use it for my face and body (when having a bath etc). As it's so natural, it leaves the skin feeling clean but soft, so it's ideal for anyone with dry/irritated skin.
Have you tried Angels On Bare Skin? Are you less lazy than me and actually put time into your nighttime cleansing routine?
