Another one (post) bites the LUSH!

Let’s talk about ‘Angels on Bare Skin’, baby! 🎶 or as I like to call it… Devils on Naked Eyes. FML! I washed my face with it and I now have ashes where my eyeballs used to be! Like, it burned and stung the living sight out of them. I literally don’t even know how I can still see… Thank you, Lord!

Oh… Oh, boy! I don’t know if you could tell by the first paragraph, but I’m not too much of a fan… LUSH, what did you put in it, Bleach and Gasoline???? 😭

My eyes were closed when I washed my face, so it can’t have been because of that… It’s just extremely sticky, so it stuck to my lids and when I opened my eyes afterwards, it was like a chemical inferno! My eyes are currently red raw too!

I usually love LUSH, and I’ll continue to use their products, but Angels On Bare Skin is NOT for me… It needs a renaming tbh.

This incredibly gentle cleanser is made from 100% natural ingredients. Inspired by a mediaeval recipe and topped off with lavender flowers, this contains kaolin to absorb grease and dirt, leaving skin clean and nourished. Lavender oil and rose absolute calm the skin. As you mix your solid cleanser with water to form a paste, the ground almonds create almond milk which helps to tone and brighten the skin. This can be used all over your body as well as your face.

The funniest thing is LUSH describes it as an “incredibly gentle cleanser”… Umm … “extremely gentle?” Hardly! 😭

On the plus side, it’s made of ground almonds and is 100% natural. I LOVE that aspect of it. I’m nutty, extremely nutty, so – anything with nuts is aSHELLing (like aPEELing but NOT).

Main thing though, did it get rid of the dirt? No. Did it absorb the grease? Yes, kinda. Did it make skin feel thicker in texture and complexion? Yes. So, it’s not all bad – I guess… Just, wear swimming goggles before applying and washing it off!

Last note from me? “I’m loving Dark Angels instead…” 🎶
