Copycat Recipe: 'Angels on Bare Skin' from Lush

Angels on Bare Skin is a popular soap-less cleanser that uses the exfoliating power of ground almonds, the moisture of pure vegetable glycerine, and the deep cleansing power of natural clay powder, along with deeply scented and therapeutic essential oils. At the prompting of one of my friends, I spent some time working on a recipe that I think is very close to the original and have even started using it myself on a regular basis! I think that you'll find my version both easy and cost effective since you can make it at home in literally a few minutes and at a quarter of the price you'd pay for it at the shop.

  1. Are you going to be selling this in your shop Tanya??

  2. Hi Tanya, This looks very good - I'd like to give it a try - but where is the Amazon link to the ingredients? Sorry if I'm being thick but I've been up down and round this post and over to your shop as well! And I'm not experienced enough on natural beauty ingredients to figure it out for myself! All help appreciated! Cx
