Review: Lush Angels On Bare Skin

This is a facial cleanser as well as a scrub that is gentle enough for daily use.  The Kaolin clay base cleans while ground almonds exfoliate the dead skin away.  Rose and lavender are also added to balance and soothe combo skin, according to the Lush website. You pinch off a piece of this clay like ball, put it in the palm of your hands and add water.  It makes a milk like substance you then rub all over your face.  

It is definitely one of the most unusual things I have ever put on my face.  When I first opened the jar, the earthy smell came out and smacked me right in the face.  When taking a piece of it out to cleanse, I often feel like a 5 year old in art class playing with clay.  Oddly enough I really don't mind any of that! I enjoyed using it and I loved that it smelled/looked/felt all natural and good for my skin.  I have to admit I don't like what happens after i cleanse/scrub my skin with this though.  It almost leaves a greasy grimy feeling to the skin, I often had to follow it with my Mario Badescu toner or face wash just to get my face feeling clean.  I don't think that should happen with a "cleanser" or a facial scrub even.  It didn't do anything wonderful to my skin either, I couldn't tell a difference when I used it from when I didn't.  So this was kind of a flop for me, and I had such high hopes for it as I have heard rave reviews!  I was so eager to get my hands on it I think I paid $30ish for the smallest amount sold (which usually would be $13) because they were sold out on the actual Lush website for days.  It is a let down because I doubt I will finish this jar, not on my face anyway.  I might start using it as a body scrub just to use it up.
