Rachelle and I are big fans of DIY beauty. Of course most times you’ll want the reliability and expertise of a professional product/ treatment. But in certain cases (as long as you have a bit of cop on ) it can be just as easy and way cheaper to do it yourself.
One of my favourite Lush products is their gentle daily exfoliator Angels On Bare Skin. Unfortunately when I moved away from my local Lush store (they’re only in Dublin and Cork, boo hoo!), despite bringing a truckload of stuff with me, I found myself one day lacking my favourite cleanser. I sadly examined the empty container, tears in my eyes and realised, I have most of these ingredients in my cupboard! So I set to work and developed a recipe for my own ground almond-based exfoliant, inspired by Lush.
Now I must emphasise that this is no substitute for the lovely Lush cleanser. But what’s nice about the DIY version, is that you can customise it to your own skintype. More about that below.
