Angels on Bare Skin Facial
  • 25g Ground Almonds – the finer grade the better.
  • 20g Kaolin Clay
  • 13g Vegetable Glycerine
  • 25 drops Rose Water
  • 1/4 tsp Lavender Flowers
  • 4 drops Lavender Essential Oil
  • 3 drops Rose Geranium Essential Oil
  1. Place all the ingredients, except 1/8 tsp of the lavender buds, in a bowl and mix.
  2. Next pour the the mixture onto a sheet of grease-proof paper and squish it into a ball.
  3. Using part of the paper between your hand and the ball, flatten the ball and then sprinkle on the remaining lavender buds.
  4. Roll it up and store it a water-tight container with a fitted lid.

Note: There are no preservatives in this recipe but due to its low water content it will keep for up to three months.

Usage:
You use this gentle cleanser by taking a pinch in your hand and mixing it with a little water to release the ‘Almond milk’, according to Lush. In actuality this step helps to wet and disperse the ingredients and the milkiness comes from Kaolin Clay. Use the wet paste as a normal scrub all over your body but it’s especially great as a soap-free cleanser for your face. It’s gentle enough for most skin types and will leave your skin feeling bright and silky and smooth.
