I heart Lush! They give me so much inspiration and I have always wanted to try the Lush Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser.
After a much needed personal break, I am back on track and better than ever before. It is so funny, you know? The way life works out… The things you learn… The things people reveal about themselves without even knowing, ha! I am here to fulfill my goal of completing this past years roster of facials. For the sake of my facials theme for the past year, I am catching up the last month of facials I missed and still calling them Facial Friday. These will be posted randomly, including this one here. They will be dated to their appropriate “scheduled” date I had originally planned. It has been a crazy good year and 52 facials has been insane fun for me and an insane task i set for myself. Hope you have liked it so far!
Angels on Bare Skin Lush DIY
3 Tablespoons Organic Almonds
1 Tablespoon Glycerine
3 Tablespoons Kaolin Clay
1-2 drops Organic Lavender Essential Oil
I have taken a picture of each step aka I took a lot of pictures. For a step by step, follow the pictures with the description following each picture.
I took my almonds and ran them in my mini food processor until I got this texture right here. You can go further but I was ok with this type of texture.
Then add your Kaolin clay and combine them well.
Then add the glycerine and combine well again.
I started to mix with a spatula, but you really have to get in there. Almost like you are making a cookie dough.
This is the texture I ended up with after adding a few drops of water. I worked it in with my hands and got a crumbly dough texture.
Then I added a couple drops of Lavender essential oil. Mix well one more time to distribute the essential oil.
Turn the product out onto a parchment paper.
I flattened mine down and made little tiny rectangle.
Then I sprinkled in my lavender flowers.
I made sure to have enough flowers sprinkled all over.
Then I rolled the rectangle, sort of like a cake roll. I made my little cleanser log no bigger than my pointer finger.
There is enough here for about six uses once all chopped up.
There you have it! I store mine in mini metal container. My sister purchased these for me at World Market and they have a lid for storage.
To prepare my cleanser, I took a slice and added some water to make a paste.
Over my bathroom sink I smoothed some over my whole face.
Even with the somewhat chunky texture, this was a super gentle cleanser. I did a mini massage and then rinsed away leaving super duper soft skin.
Sometimes after a cleanser with texture my skin is flush and red. This was not the case, my skin felt and looked amazing after. No redness on this girl!
Thank you for checking back!
