Skin Nightmare!!

Hi Ladies,

I hope that you're all well.

I don't know what is wrong recently but my skin is an absolute NIGHTMARE!

Spotty with dry patches, looks terrible with AND without make up!

So, yesterday I dashed to Lush and picked up the below products:

Angels On Bare Skin Cleanser:

Taken from the Lush website:

'Angels on Bare Skin evens out skin tone, reduces redness and improves the health and appearance of your skin – giving a natural healthy glow.

The ground almonds in this product release their goodness and turn to an almond milk on your hand when you add water.

Almond milk has been used in many parts of the world for centuries as a toning and brightening ingredient.

We have mixed this with kaolin, to absorb grease and gently cleanse, vegetable glycerine to soften and moisturise the skin and a beautiful blend of essential oils, all chosen for their abilities to balance and tone the skin.

We then sprinkle the mix with lavender flowers as we roll it. Angels on Bare Skin is made from 100 percent natural ingredients – because when nature is this good, you don’t want to mess with her balance!

This is basically a solid that turns to a cleansing milk when you add the water. By taking out the water we have taken away the need to add preservatives – which makes this much kinder on your face and does not upset the skin's own microflora.

It is hard to tell you in words how fantastic this product is. Only by using it will you know its full value.'

Catastrophe Cosmetic Face Mask:

Taken from the Lush website:

'You know those times when you get one or two spots and it throws you into panic? Well, this mask is here to lend you a bit of perspective, to tell you to calm down, it’s not the end of the world and it’s nothing that can't be sorted. Basically, this is your best mate in a pot.

Irish moss gel will soften the skin, whilst almond oil will moisturise and leave it supple.

Fresh blueberries are full of vitamins and minerals and are anitoxidant. Rose absolute and chamomile essential oil will reduce redness and irritation. Calamine and talc will deep clean and soothe the skin at the same time.

Combined together they provide your skin with a good deep cleanse without causing puffiness – leaving the face cool, clear and calm.

This is a deep cleansing mask that it designed for regular maintenance to keep the skin clean and clear. Regular deep cleaning can avoid spots occurring and keep skin in top condition.'

I've used both products for the last few days so it would be unfair to provide a fair review just yet but used along with Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish, Caudalie Beauty Elixir, Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturiser and Origins Spot Remover, I have noticed my skin calming a little.

What do you do when your skin goes crazy? Are there any other recommendations for me to try?

Any help would be very much appreciated!

Thank you for reading.

Lots of love,



  1. I have Angels on Bare Skin and I absolutely love it!! I feel like it really cleans my skin and it feels so soft afterwards, I really recommend it!

    1. I love it too!

      What other products do you recommend?

      Thank you for your comment lovely!


  2. I really love the angels cleanser. You should try using the tea tree toner after cleansing too. It doesn't have alcohol like normal toners and works really well.

  3. Thank you for your comment!

    I tried it a LONG time ago and can't remember why I stopped using it! Might have to try again.

    What else do you like product wise?
