Dark and tough, this one doesn't mess about. It's a black, squidgy scrub made with charcoal to absorb oils and exfoliate your skin. Nutritious avocado oil softens, glycerine keeps the moisture in and black sugar scrubs away. Dark Angels is a hardcore cleanser with a little bit of surfactant mixed in to remove dirt and grease.
About a year ago, I used to have terrible oily skin and so many blackheads. I'd tried lots and lots of drugstore scrubs, washes and masks, but none of them worked. I found a lot of them stripped my skin, casuing more breakouts. I'd never tried anything from the Lush skincare range, but being a loyal Lush fan, I thought I'd give it a go. I made a thick paste and it went on my skin so easily, and unlike some scrubs, it didnt scratch my face. It's a little tough to wash off because of all the charcoal, but that didn't bother me too much. The results were amazing, my skin looked and felt so clean and my blackheads were almost invisible! My skin was so smooth, and my skin didn't feel oily at all that day. I used it 2-3 times a week, but I've found that it's helped clear up my oily skin for good, so now I only need to use it twice a week. It's a big tub that's lasted me a long time, and I'll definitely keep buying this!
This is the only facial scrub that I go back to using after trying out others. This product is comparably to the MAC volcanic scrub that was limited edition a few years back. A little goes a long way with this product. Every six months I re-purchase : ) It really gets rid of all residue from any facial products. Its can be used on any skin types. For dry skin it would be best to use once a week to remove any flakey skin. For more oily skin you can use it up to 3 times a week depending on how oily you are. I have combination skin. Winter I use once a week summer time 2-3 times a week.
I have extremely oily skin and while in a lush shop, I picked up a small pot. This is the best face cleanser I have ever used. I use it at night to take off my make up before bed and it gets every last inch of my foundation off. If you enjoy this cleanser, try angels on bare skin. That is also good and made my skin feel soft and clean.
This is the best product I have ever used. I have extremely oily skin that is mildly acne prone. As soon as I took the switch from Clean&Clear and Clearasil, this was so awesome. My skin no longer gets excess oil and even prevents the oil from forming. Also, it leaves a flawless matte finish which is a total plus! Great product. :)
I bought this about a month ago and immediately I saw change within the first time I used it. But with the time that's passed, my face is smoother and clearer and it hasn't been this way in years! I looked specifically for a charcoal mask to absorb impurities and I found just that. I leave this on to dry before I rinse it off and I notice I don't have those tiny bumps from blocked pores on my nose and forehead and my makeup application looks flawless (:
I definitely recommend this product to people who feel their skin is dull, have oily skin, sensitive and acne prone skin which is what I have. Please try!
I went to the nearest Lush store yesterday because I ran out of Ocean Salt Scrub but sadly, they are out of stock. So my Lush "lady" recommended this product as substitute for the Ocean Salt. So far, so good. It leaves my skin smooth and glowing, exfoliates, draws out oil the entire area and it is less abrasive than the Ocean Salt Scrub which I am using. You can also use this every other day as your gentle exfoliant!
I really like this face scrub because my skin feels so soft and not oily after using it. I wish Lush products were cheaper but you have to make money some how. Other than that I'm super satisfied with the end results.
i have combination skin and have a hard time finding a cleanser that doesn't make my skin too dry or still feel oily. After using Lush's Dark Angels my skin feels soft, smooth, and clean. Just make sure to use a washcloth to remove excess and toner otherwise you will have black marks left on your face.
This stuff seems like it lasts forever! I don't use this as much in the winter because it dries me out just a bit but in the summer it's perfect. I exfoliate quite often so this is perfect with it having such a light exfoliant that I can use it once a day with it not overdoing it. Makes my face clear and baby soft. Love love love!
I've been using this product for about 3 weeks and it's the best facialcleanser/exfoliant that I have ever used!! Granted it looks like black dirt...lol..but it deep cleans the skin and leaves it silky soft to the touch!! If you have oily skin this is definately for you!! :)
