I take two spoons full mix it with water and make a paste – apply it all over my face and neck and leave till it dries out. I love using this. I have a very sensitive skin and this one didn’t irritate or made my skin dry. I use it every day & night before my regular CTM routine. I finished one full tub within 1 1/2 months of using it.
My experience using this product
Now, I have a extremely sensitive skin with an oily T zone area and dry cheek and eye area. When I checked the ingredient list, It was completely satisfying for me to order this product. I remember using LUSH cleansers before using this. I got this during a time when LUSH closed all of its stores in India. I take two spoons full mix it with water and make a paste – apply it all over my face and neck and leave till it dries out and then I spray some cold water on my face and scrub in circular motions and rinse off.
I am addicted to using this product. It smells like ground almonds and of rose which I am a big fan of. I love it for the fragrance and how calm it makes my skin. I see little or no breakouts when I use this. Back when I stayed in Hyderabad, apart from a kiwi fruit face wash that I used, I was not using a foaming face wash. I loved to wash my face, rather scrub wash my face using this product and my skin felt really fresh. If I see an acne coming up, I usually dab tea tree oil on the acne and only use this product as a mask. Within 3 days, my acne would subside.
I would like to use it under my eyes too as it has almond etc. which is good for dark circles. I am not seeing any drastic changes. But, skin feels very clear and healthy with little spots when I use this. The only problem I faced with this is that it makes the wash-basin very messy. Be sure you are wearing your spa/mask clothes before applying this or another tip is apply this before shower and wash off alongside your body bath…
Now, If you ask me whether this is anyway similar to Angels on Bare skin by Lush. I would say both are wonderful products and both are different from each other. I can’t say they are similar.
LUSH Angels on bare skin facial cleanser has its signature Lavender that calms down and soothes acne and the real lavender flowers in them makes it very special. LUSH Angels on Bare skin is a gentle exfoliating, brightening and soothing cleanser that is perfect for all skin types. I will do a comparison post soon.
Gia bath & body Angel cleanser has the goodness of rose and almonds that improves your skin tone and help balance your skin by controlling the oil, removing dirt, etc and is for dry-combination skin. If you have oily skin, there is a dark angel cleanser from Gia Bath and Body. You have my guarantee for this product. I am reviewing this after more than a year of using this.
If you like natural cleanser, or a cleanser with all organic ingredients, you can check Gia Bath and Body. They have a variety of cleansers to choose from. My favorite is this one, Papaya and Orange. Do a study on the ingredients and do try them if you are not allergic to any ingredient mentioned. Overall, Angel cleanser is my favorite product from Gia Bath & Body and I will continue to purchase it. I like to leave it on like a mask and then rinse off by scrubbing in circular motions. I love how it balances my skin. Especially during winters. I will surely repurchase this cleanser as well as other cleansers from Gia Bath & Body. I love Gia Bath & Body Works brand a lot and I swear by their products!!
