Angels on Bare Skin | Lush

Wednesday, February 11, 2015

I present to you, Angels On Bare Skin, my favorite, new skincare product! I recieved a Lush giftcard for Christmas and so stopped in to our local Lush, with the thought that I would be finding a new face cleanser. I felt like the cleanser I had been using for years wasn't cutting it because it's really meant to remove makeup and not do much else. I have written about my finicky skin before and over finals/beginning of winter break my breakouts were just out of control.  

I had actually never been to Lush before, but knew of its "all-fresh" skincare/makeup concept through reading about it online. When I walked in, I must have had an overwhelmed puppy dog look on my face because I was quickly scooped up by a sales associate who flooded me with questions about what I was looking for. After explaining that I was in the market for a new cleanser and explained what kind of skin I have, they sat me down and showed me AOBS. I instantly fell in love with it when they demonstrated on the back of my hand how it is used!

(With a few drops of warm water added)
I usually use it in the shower, when my pores are open from the hot water. I just take a small amount (they suggested a pea-size, and I didn't believe that at first...but its really all you need) and add a bit of water to it so it spreads across my face easier. I just massage it on for 1-2 minutes and then just rinse it off. If I could send scents through these blog, I totally would for this cleanser/scrub because its such an invigorating scent! You can definitely smell the lavender, with hints of a woody-ness I would say. It is definitely a stronger smell, but one that wakes me up while also relaxing me at the same time. 

 (Yikes, bare-faced on the internet!)
It is made from ground almonds and lavender (among other ingredients) so its a gentle scrub that takes off dead skin without causing dryness for me. This was interesting because I used to use facial scrubs with harsh beads that I thought were really taking off dead skin...who knew something more subtle would do the trick?! Every time I use it, my face feels as soft as velvet! 

I have been using it for about 6 weeks now, and I feel so much more confident about my skin. I only ever have breakouts now if I don't wash my face thoroughly with this and my skin just looks more healthy! I highly suggest this product to those of you with combination skin who just can't escape the sometimes oily/ sometimes peeling dry cycle! It has become a part of my everyday skincare routine.

Let me know if you use it already or if you try it!

I received no compensation or anything for this review...just obsessed with this product and wanted to shout about it from the mountains!
