    I just discovered Lush when I went to the local mall last week. Their Angels on Bare Skin cleanser is great and am impressed with the Ayesha facial mask! Where the hell have I been?

    Apparently, Lush has a makeup line (under a different name don't know what so can't check it out) as well but unfortunately it's not available in North America.

    The smell at Lush makes me want to retch so I've never actually been inside.

    Hate Lush. Can't stand strong smells.

    Cleansers ... at some point I had my hands on a list of all the ingredients that could cause skin reactions, because I have really sensitive skin. And damned if almost every product I investigated had multiple "bad" ingredients.

    I ended up going to a health-food store, and almost everything there also had various potential irritants. Finally, I bought some stuff by Zia, because it was the only brand that didn't use anything known to be irritating in any of its products. That was years ago, I'm still using the Zia line, and I've never had a reaction of any kind.

    I used to use this liquid soap a couple years ago and I liked it well enough. It didn't give me any bad or harsh reaction. I must have thick, hardy skin. I've read on Makeup Alley that lots of people say their numbered toners are completely harsh and stripping, moreso than other toners.

    I've heard Clinique should only be used if you are in your 20's as the products tend to be too harsh.

    ^^^If you look at the reviews here Skin Care Product Reviews: Clinique
    and these below:

    then you'll notice that quite a few rated Clinique as having "Adverse Affects" and that the products are a bit too harsh. Their soap contains tallow, lye and all lotions contain alcohol. These are all strong ingredients and so it's not surprising that a lot of people tested had similar results to yours.

    I think skin care is a personal choice and depends on your skin type. This site should help:

    When I turned 30 I switched from Clinique mostly because I got tired of shelling out the bucks for it when I could find comparable elsewhere, but also because it's too much for my skin.

    I switched to this:



    I like it, it likes my skin, we're both happy. Not sure if it's available in the UK, though, but it's a drugstore product in the U.S. and priced around $4-5.

    Honey - if you do like LUSH products, here's what I use on my face. Have used their stuff for years. I use the Almond & Coconut Smoothie shower smoothie on my face - it takes all the makeup off, including eye makeup, and it doesn't dry my face out. And you only need a little, so it lasts a long time.

    I've used everything from Clinique to Mary Kay to products sold at Walmart, and the best thing I've found so far is the St. Ives brand. It's so inexpensive, yet it works wonders!
