Q:I bought this product last week in a boutique and when I arrived home I realized that my container did not have a production date or a best by date on the labels. What is a good ball park time frame for this product?Asked on 6/23/2015 by Tiffany
A:Wow, you bought this product at a boutique and not an actual LUSH store! I
would have been leery that it was authentic LUSH. If it were me, I would use
it up ASAP. My thinking is it is already way past its expiration date hence
not being sold by LUSH. Having said all that, looking at my Angels on Bare
Skin production sticker, it says "made on 07 APR 2015 Use by 07 JUL 2015".
It was made by Adrian if anyone cares! LOL Hope I answered your question
for you, just ignore the other part if I misunderstood your bought in a
boutique.Answered on 6/24/2015 by kc_train from Kansas
Q:I love this product. LOVE. I have bought it tons of times. But I just can't seem to figure out how to use it without making a mess. Suggestions would be very much appreciated! I feel like I waste a lot of it dropping it everywhere.Asked on 6/3/2015 by Autumn from Los Angeles, CA
A:It helps to create a paste in your hand with a little bit of water so it adheres to the skin more when you go to apply it. It can be a little bit messy, but practice makes perfect!Answered on 6/3/2015 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
A:This is my favorite LUSH product as well. And I feel the same way you do, I
feel like there are days I waste a lot of product by dropping it everywhere.
For me I cup my hand so I end up with a small well in my palm. I then put
the amount of AOBS cleanser that I want to use with the water and make my
paste then quickly move my hand containing the cleanser to my forehead or
check and spread out in a circular motion from there eventually I get enough
product all over my face and I can use both hands to wash my whole face.
Some days I drop very little other days more but I am getting better!Answered on 6/3/2015 by kc_train from Kansas
Q:I recently bought this cleanser and I LOVE it! But I was wondering if this cleanser would be okay for removing eye makeup, specifically mascara.Asked on 5/29/2015 by gracie from Barstow,CA
A:If you find it works to take off your eye makeup, there is no harm in using it as so. With that said, most people find it to be a little bit difficult and will choose a liquid cleanser like 9 to 5 or Ultrabland to do the job.Answered on 6/1/2015 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
A:Angels on Bare Skin cleanser is my favorite as well! I do not think it would
be okay for removing eye makeup. It has too many fine ground particles that
could get into your eyes and be painful and uncomfortable, in my opinion. I
believe LUSH recommends 9 to 5 softening cleansing cream to remove make-up
but check either in store or on line for further information.Answered on 5/30/2015 by kc_train from Kansas
A:Hi! I also love Angels on bare skin but would probably not use it for removing mascara because of the exfoliating consistency. I would not want to get it in my eyes! Ultrabland is perfect for removing eye makeup! I use that and then sometimes another cleanser after like angels on bare skin or herbalism! :)

Q:I can't decide what size I should get. If I used it twice a day would it not be worth it to buy the smaller pot? And if I bought the bigger one would I be able to use all of it by 3 months since its preservative free?? Also I haven't had a sample yet of this product but based off the reviews I know this product is for me.(: hope u guys can helpAsked on 5/27/2015 by Harshi
A:Using the recommended amount of cleanser twice per day, you will likely want to choose the larger size. If you give the product a try and it doesn't seem to be working out for you, you are definitely welcome to return it.Answered on 6/1/2015 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
A:I bought this product without trying as well, just based off the reviews and
Angels on Bare Skin is by far my favorite LUSH product. I use a little more
than their recommended pea size once a day when I wash my face and I go
through the large size a little past its best by date. Bear in mind, nothing
bad happens to the product if it goes past its best buy date by a day or two
or even a week but I wouldn't use it much past then. Based on the fact that
you said you wash your face twice a day, I would think the large size would
last you just find. You will probably go through the large pot long before
it expires. But you could always try the smaller pot just to see if you like
it.Answered on 5/28/2015 by kc_train from Kansas
A:I can use the large size in 3 months. If you've never tried it before, you may want to start with the smaller size to be sure it suits your needs. I love this product but my skin is at its best when I use an exfoliating cleanser. It's a very individual thing.

Q:i have blemish skin using ultrabland can i use this one want brighter face and smooth tell me what do lushAsked on 5/23/2015 by nina
A:Ultrabland is a great cleanser for blemish prone skin, I would follow up with our Tea Tree Water toner and Vanishing Cream to quell future breakouts.Answered on 5/26/2015 by Alexander from Lush Direct
Q:Does this help with acne? I'm debating between getting this, fresh Pharmacy, and herbalism. Which is the best for getting rid of acne and clogged pores??
Thanks!!Asked on 4/28/2015 by Em
A:YES! I used that one for about a year when I was having acne problems and
it helps so much. I noticed that doing it every other day or even twice a
week is better just so that your skin doesn't get used to it. And if you
see that the acne is coming back then take a break for a week and then
start using again because it is probably just your skin getting used to it!
Also everyone's skin is different so just because it worked for me doesn't
mean it'll clear you up right away.
CalliAnswered on 4/29/2015 by Anonymous
A:Yes, this will definitely help with your breakouts. Fresh Pharmacy is great for sensitive skin, but not for acne-prone, clogged skin.
Herbalism is great for oily, acne-prone skin, which I think can work really well for you. The kaolin clay and rice bran mops up excess oils and deep-cleanses, while a blend of rosemary, nettle, and chamomile leaves skin feeling fresh and toned. It's super gentle and moisturizing, the chlorophyllin, which is extracted from alfalfa plants contain many nourishing vitamins and minerals. This will work very well for acne-prone skin, because it will help clean it!
Angels on Bare Skin is really great too, but is more for all skin-types rather than just oily skin. Like Herbalism it has a kaolin clay base, which will deep-cleanse, while the finely ground almonds and lavender flowers gently exfoliate away dry skin. The lavender oil is great for soothing and balancing your face.Answered on 4/29/2015 by Pauline
Q:does this have an expiration date? if so, how long should i keep one and where should it be stored?Asked on 4/9/2015 by alaura
A:Yes, all LUSH products have expiration dates. I always try to use the
product by its expiration date but it is okay if it goes past by a week or
two. I store my Angels on Bare Skin in the shower where I use it daily to
wash my face.Answered on 4/11/2015 by kc_train from Kansas
A:Angels on Bare Skin has a three month shelf-life from the day it was made. It is best to store it in cool, dry environment where it will not come into contact with water.Answered on 4/10/2015 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
Q:Is the Glycerine Lush uses GMO Free?Asked on 3/23/2015 by Maj
A:Our Glycerin is soy based and coming from our lovely friends in Belgium! It is GMO free.Answered on 3/27/2015 by Kels from LUSH Direct
Q:I have mild eczema on my face. Would this cleanser help with that? or would another be better?Asked on 3/4/2015 by Izzy
A:I would recommend you check out our MOVIS soap or Ultrabland. Both are very hydrating cleansers that will leave your skin more nourished than when you started. Angels on Bareskin is very gentle, yet exfoliating, and the more gentle you are with irritated skin the better.Answered on 3/21/2015 by Alexander from LUSH Direct
A:This is one of only two cleanser I've used. Of the two, it's by far my favorite. It's very gentle on your skin while cleansing and exfoliating. The only reason I have a different cleanser now is because Angels on Bare Skin was out of stock when I need to restock! I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Q:Can I use this as a body wash?Asked on 2/19/2015 by Rinka from Wayne, NJ
A:You could use it as a body wash if you wish, I would suggest taking a bit of it in your hand and adding water so it doesn't get too crumbly in the shower.Answered on 3/21/2015 by Lana from LUSH Direct
A:No, I do not think Angels on Bare Skin would work as a body wash. It is not
like soap at all, it is dry and crumbly so I don't see how you would be able
to wash your whole body with it. Now if you had a small area that you wanted
to wash separately, I believe it would work.Answered on 2/19/2015 by kc_train from Kansas
Q:is the small size also come within the black pot or like a bar?Asked on 11/22/2014 by Jane from RI
A:Both sizes of Angels on Bare Skin come in black pots.Answered on 11/25/2014 by Serena from LUSH Direct
Q:I have pretty dry skin, is this more hydrating/moisturizing than "Let the Good Times Roll"?Asked on 11/11/2014 by Rachel from Minnesota
A:Angels on Bare Skin has more moisturizing ingredients than Let the Good Times Roll. Angels on Bare Skin is made with ground almonds which create almond milk when mixed with water and massaged on your hand. The almond milk soothes and moisturizes the skin while the glycerin helps hydrate it.Answered on 11/12/2014 by Rene
A:This face wash is extremely hydrating and moisturizing. I've been using it for over a year and I love it.

Q:About how long does a 3.5 oz pot last with once-daily usage? I received a sample in my recent online order and am dying to buy a whole pot, but I don't know what size would be best since it is a perishable item. For reference: I have been using a pea-sized ball once daily for 4 days now and still have about half of the sample left.Asked on 11/5/2014 by CaitO from Clovis, NM
A:It should be good for at least a month or two if you're only using just a tiny bit.Answered on 11/14/2014 by Anonymous
A:I have ordered a number of times and they usually last about 2 months. I
do have a tendency to use a lot though.Answered on 11/7/2014 by Anonymous
Q:Is this suitable for dry skin types? Or will it be too harsh and dry my skin out more than it already is?Asked on 10/22/2014 by Rachel from Minneapolis
A:Yes, it's great for all dry skin and for all other skin types, it is a gentle scrub that really works well to cleanse the face!Answered on 11/14/2014 by Anonymous
A:Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser is for all skin types so I would say it would
be suitable for dry skin. I have T-zone complexion, my cheeks are dry yet my
forehead, nose and chin are oily. I use Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser and
like it very much. It keeps my cheeks moist and my T-zone dry yet not too
dry. Hope this is helpful and best of luck.Answered on 10/23/2014 by kc_train from Kansas
A:I have dry skin. In fact my face was so dry it used to crack, flake, and peel. I started using Angels on Bare Skin cleanser along with Celestial moisturizer and haven't had any issues of dry skin on my face since. I highly recommend these products.

A:This product is absolutely amazing for dry skin. My face feels so soft and moisturized after using this product, that I've stopped using my face lotion for my dry skin. Also, this product lasts for so long that in the end you save money from not having to constantly buy facial cleansers and lotions. I strongly recommend it!Answered on 10/22/2014 by Anonymous
A:In my experience, this cleanser has been anything but harsh. Rather, it gently exfoliates my face and tenderly strips away the yucky residue that has collected there throughout the day, leaving behind ultra-smooth skin. The results of this cleanser show a marked difference from all other face washes I have ever used, which were cream-based. The cream was not very successful in ridding my face of gunk. But with Angels on Bare Skin, the texture is just grainy enough to pick it up, but not harsh in any way. I believe you need a little bit of exfoliation material in every cleanser for it to be effective. The results of this product are still unbelievable to me.Answered on 10/22/2014 by Anonymous
Q:Over time my cleanser has gotten wet and now has quite a moist texture to it. Should I get a new one and prevent this? Does it make it prone to bacteria and less useful for breakouts?Asked on 6/28/2014 by Savannah from Danville, CA
A:It is definitely important to keep the product free of moisture, simply because it does not contain any preservatives to keep it from spoiling. You should be able to see if it has spoiled, but if the texture and scent is still the same there should be no problems with using it in the meantime. Just make sure to prevent it from happening again in the future!Answered on 9/25/2014 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
A:Ideally the product works best when dry. I still used my first one after it had gotten wet and didn't experience any issues with it. So it's really up to you whether you want to waste the rest of it. Here are a few things I've done with my second container and the product has stayed just as dry as it was when I got it, (and I'm almost out!): never keep the container directly inside the shower, place it ideally outside of the shower and carry it in with you or place it between the shower curtain and liner, grab the amount you need before you get your hands wet, but if they are wet then hold the bottle at and angle and grab whatever is on top to prevent water sinking to the bottom. Hope this helps!Answered on 6/28/2014 by Anonymous
Q:Can I use this cleanser everyday , both morning and evening ?Asked on 4/9/2014 by philosophy from San Diego , CA

Q:I have oily combination skin...dry in the cheeks, oily everywhere else. In the summer, which is coming up soon, it can get EXTREMELY oily...should I use this cleanser rather than Herbalism or Dark Angels? I have pretty frequent breakouts and occasional redness...so far it has been pretty nice on my skin, as I got a small pot of it, but I'm not sure if a cleanser made for oily skin would be better. I follow up with Breath of Fresh Air (now I'm thinking I should have bought the Tea Tree Toner instead, somehow the salesperson talked me into buying BoFA instead because I said I had combination skin?) and Imperialis moisturizer. I use Grease Lightning on any zits. Anyway, I would like to know how this cleanser works on acne-prone, oily/combination skin.Asked on 2/23/2014 by Bethany :) from Raleigh, NC
A:Angels on Bare Skin is a really nice, gentle cleanser. If you're face gets oilier in the summer and you're already acne-prone, I might switch to Herbalism more regularly as it works really hard to reduce the amount of oil by regulating oil production. Breath of Fresh Air would still be a good toner choice as Tea Tree Water might be too drying if you have combination skin.Answered on 3/21/2014 by Kendra M from LUSH Direct
A:might i recommend mask of magnanimity, apply twice a week then follow through with angels on bare skin every other day. hope this helpsAnswered on 3/15/2014 by Cupcake from Miami, FL
Q:Does this product help remove acne scars and prevent future breakouts?Asked on 1/16/2014 by Skin-Crazed Sara from Phoenix, AZ
A:This cleanser will definitely help prevent future breakouts. The exfoliating properties of it will help a bit with your acne scars, but more effective products will contain fruit juices to brighten the skin and reduce the appearance of your scars.Answered on 3/8/2014 by Kendra M from LUSH Direct
Q:Is it okay to use this product both in the morning and night?Asked on 1/5/2014 by Ariana
A:Angels on Bare Skin is definitely gentle enough to use both morning and night so please feel free to do so!Answered on 3/14/2014 by Melissa S from LUSH Direct
A:I mainly use Angels on Bare Skin in the morning, but occasionally use it twice a day without any issues. I love this product and see no reason it can't be used twice a day. It does not dry out my skin or make it oily. It is great for me! (I have dry skin and use oil free products)Answered on 1/6/2014 by Anonymous
A:Yes! I use this product as often as I want. It cleans your face without leaving it feeling dry.
Sent from my iPhoneAnswered on 1/5/2014 by Anonymous
A:Yes!! It's very gentle and not at all drying. Use as much as you have need of. I've been using it for years.

Q:Will this cleanser get rid of zits/bumps, or does it only prevent future zits from happening?Asked on 12/8/2013 by Kingsley
A:It does get rid of your blemishes. However, it takes a pretty long time. I think you should use it with eroama water! Your skin will become so soft and clear!Answered on 8/16/2014 by The Little Mermaid from Sunnyvale, CA
A:This facial cleanser is designed to help minimize and heal existing blemishes as well as prevent future ones from forming.Answered on 2/26/2014 by Kendra M from LUSH Direct
A:I would say both. Well for me at least. I love this product so much! It was my first LUSH product. And I have to say it really does help with acne. I started using Herbalism and I though since I love both of these products and they're helping with acne, imagine both of them working together. So I mixed them both together and it really does help. But it also depends on what skin type you have. I have combination to dry skin and after I wash my face with Angels, I feel like I don't need lotion anymore. But I still do, I use Aveeno and this combo is amazing.Answered on 1/19/2014 by BrendaBabyface from Orange County
A:It helps to soothe irritated skin and clear breakouts for me.Answered on 12/8/2013 by Anonymous
