This is the first of two posts today as for the whole of this month I’ve been very slack in blogging. It’s not because I don’t want to or don’t have thins to blog about, it’s just the fact I’m tired. Usually the only time in the day I have to blog is in the evening and by that time the thought of thinking of something witty and interesting does not appeal. I’m going to try and make more of an effort to blog during the day when Little Miss is asleep because I do miss it.
Today I’m sharing with you the current cleanser I’m using because it has really surprised me and made me think twice about Lush skincare.
Last month I attended a North East Lush event at the Metro Centre. While I was there we got the chance to help make a batch of Angels on Bare Skin Fresh Facial Cleanser* that we each got to take some home to try. I’ve used very little from the Lush Skincare, only really the fresh face masks, my favourite being Cupcake (I totally recommend you try it, I reviewed it back in March here). I’ve now been using Angel on Bare Skin for a few weeks now and I’m already wondering what I can try next!
|Angels on Bare Skin* RRP £6.25/100g|
Angels on Bare Skin contains almonds, lavender, rose & chamomile. On the list of ingredients on the Lush website everything in it is a natural ingredient, absolutely no safe synthetics which is probably why it’s great for someone with sensitive skin, like me. It is also Vegan friendly. It smells fantastic too! You can read the full list of ingredients here.
I’ve been using this cleanser every morning as it isn’t any good at removing make up so I use a different cleanser in the evening. I take a small amount into the palm of my hand, drip some warm water onto it and mix it up a bit. It turns into a milk gritty consistency and this is what I apply all over my face. I give it a good rub it before washing it off with clean warm water and I use a towel to pat it dry. I follow it with my Kiehls toner and finally moisturiser. My skin is so soft, as well as looking radiant and healthy. I don’t even know if it’s possibly but I look even younger after I’ve used it, all fresh and dewy, exactly what I need after a sleepless night with a teething baby. A little really goes a long way, I’ve been using it for just short of three weeks and I’ve barely scratched the surface! Worth the £6.25 price tag.
My only complaints are two, one that it’s quite messy. I’m used to cleanser being in a liquid form, I just apply to face and wash off but this stuff when it turns into the milk formula gets everywhere. Secondly, it’s not the sort of cleanser you use to sort of any break outs. I wouldn’t say it’s caused any break outs, but it hasn’t improved them either but this doesn’t really surprise me as that isn’t what Lush claims it does.. it’s a cleanser to even out your skin tone and give your skin a healthy glow, which is exactly what it does.
I definitely think my search for the perfect morning cleanser is over and with that price, I think I’ve found myself a total bargain.
Have you used any of Lush skincare? What do you recommend?
