I had been looking for a new cleanser for a while before I bought Angels on Bare Skin. I like to have a good understanding of the product and read reviews before I purchase skin products, especially cleansers as they are often expensive and with sensitive skin, they often irritate so I like to see other people’s opinions.

I have heard this product being mentioned a lot on social media for it’s gentle but great qualities – many people with sensitive skin like mine had said it was a really great product. So with that in mind, I went into Lush knowing that I would soon be approached by a member of staff. I explained how gentle I needed to be with my skin and this was recommended – after looking it up beforehand I felt I was ready to try it, and I am so glad I did!
The application of this product is very easy – simply add a pea sized amount in your palm and add a little water to form a small paste. It is suggested that the paste it still fairly thick when you apply it but that is of course entirely up to you. Once I have covered my face I rub it in gently, in circular motions, for a little exfoliation and then wash it away. I usually do it in the shower just for easiness but you can do it over the sink with a flannel too.
The Best Bits
I love to use this product because it leaves me feeling really refreshed and ready for the day despite getting up super early all week for work. I really love the smell of it too – it’s quite botanical and natural with the lavender strong enough to notice yet not too potent. I have a lot of lavender products, I can’t stop buying them because I just love the calming effect it has on me and how they make me feel so I was really happy to come across this cleanser.
£9 for 100g is admittedly quite expensive, but I use such a small amount of this product each day that I know it will last me for months so I think this is quite reasonable. This is also available in 250g pot for £22.50, but it works out at the same value.
This cleanser is a really great all rounder that is suitable for pretty much all skin types. As I said, I have very sensitive skin – I find the lavender and mix of essential oils very delicate and whilst it cleanses well, it’s not too harsh on my skin. As you can see by the photos, it’s not an entirely smooth formula with chunks of lavender in which admittedly does feel a bit strange on my face but it works, so I’m not complaining!
One thing I will mention about this product is that it will not remove your make up. I like to use this mostly in the morning before I would apply any make up this is not as issue for me but something I felt I should mention. I have used other cleansers in the evening that removed my make up as well as leaving my skin feeling refreshed so if you wear a lot of make up then this may be something to consider. However, I don’t wear a huge amount of make up, and on the occasion that I do apply a minimal amount, I like to remove it first and then apply my cleanser to ensure it is adequately removed, so this is not a big deal for me.
This product can also make a bit of a mess due to the texture of the cleanser. Of course this to be expected due to the nature of the ingredients but I felt it was necessary to add! As mentioned earlier, I usually apply this product in the shower to avoid making a mess and using an extra flannel (but that’s just me being tight)
Despite some of the negative things I have mentioned, I would rate this product 4.5 stars out of 5. I have rated it so highly as this is my go to cleanser I use pretty much every day and it has cleared my skin up so much. The smell of it just makes me happy and it feels like a big balloon of fresh botanical air!
