LUSH Angels on Bare Skin

We don't have Lush in Poland, but I had heard a lot about this brand before I moved to Istanbul, so when I discovered their shops here in Turkey I got really excited. I like the idea of handmade cosmetics, made with fresh ingredients and the fact, that Lush don't test on animals. Their prices here are a bit high, but I knew it will be impossible for me not to try any of their products.

Angels on Bare Skin evens out skin tone, reduces redness and improves the health and appearance of your skin – giving a natural healthy glow.
I don't know if it really evens out my skin tone, but it definitely works wonders. I use it in the mornings and it leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean. It smells like lavender and almonds, as these are the main ingredients of this cleanser. It doesn't lather up at all, so if you have never tried anything like that you will probably have to get used to washing your face with this cleanser - you need just the smallest amount and you mix it with a bit of water to create a paste. I have combination skin that sometimes can get very sensitive and this cleanser is perfect for me - it doesn't make my skin feel dry, doesn't irritate it. It gently exfoliates and leaves a subtle film on your face (but nothing extremely oily!), so if you don't like the feeling you will probably want to use a toner afterwards, but if you have sensitive/dry skin you will probably be happy about that. It doesn't remove make-up, but it's not a big deal for me - I have other things for that :)

Here's a little close-up for you, as you can see it's a bit grainy and it feels a lot like play dough (it's clay based) - it can be a bit messy and that's why I use it mostly in the shower. 100g of the cleanser costs 27TL in Turkey (around 11€/15$) and it stays fresh for 3 months since the production date.

Have you tried Angels on Bare Skin? Do you like it? Have you tried other Lush cleansers? Any favourites?


  1. Marzę o nim :D Moje wielkie kosmetyczne marzenie.

    Mogłabyś wyłączyć w ustawieniach komentarzy weryfikację obrazkową?

  2. o, nawet nie wiedziałam, że taką mam, już szperam i szukam jak to wyłączyć :)

    a marzenie warte zrealizowania, ja niedawno kupiłam kolejne opakowanie po chyba dwóch miesiącach przerwy (próbowałam zużyć inne produkty do mycia twarzy) i niesamowicie się stęskniłam za tym zapachem i efektami :D

  3. I'm trying AOBS out, but I can't get used to the not-exactly-squeaky-clean feeling afterwards - I know it's meant not to strip my skin and all, but you know what feeling I'm talking about?
