Dark Angels is a hardcore cleanser with a little bit of surfactant mixed in to remove dirt and grease.
Exfoliates well, good for oily skin
I have oily skin and therefore was looking for a cleanser that I could use 2-3 times a week to really exfoliate and cleanse. Dark Angels is great for those with oily skin, as it seems to draw out the oils in your face without leaving your skin super dehydrated. My skin feels refreshed after using Dark Angels, and it seems to be helping with my spots. I was a little worried that the charcoal would be hard to get off, but it washes right off with warm water.
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!
Makes my face feel nice and clean, but I haven't noticed any real difference in my skin. My biggest gripe is that it is incredibly difficult to wash off. I have to use a toner afterwards to get it to come off because it literally sticks to my face. Not worth the annoyance.
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 Just Keeps Going.
I really like this product, I find that it really cleanses my skin and I work in fast food most days, so that's something I really look for in a cleanser/exfoliant. Due to my skin being incredibly resistant to many products, I find I can use this every second night as long as I make sure I use a pretty heavy moisturising as it really does absorb the oil. I bought a big block sorta thing of this and I just keep it in an air tight container and cut of little bits that last me about it a week each whenever I need to.
Great for oily skin!
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!
due to the weather my skin has been oily lately and I broke out! so I tried this product and it really helped my skin so much! after using a coulple of times my skin cleared up! The only thing was it did not remove my makeup and left my skin dry. so it became my morning cleanser and I just used moisturzier and it was fine. oily skin will love! :)
a little goes a long way
i just got this product today and I already love it! people tend to say lush products are to scent-y but I love their scents! They're so fresh and earthy! This product is great and I can already feel my face smoother and cleaner after one use! A little of this product goes a long way which is great economically since you don't have to buy a heck of a lot of it. I recommend this product if you want a gentle exfoliator and have trouble patches typically in the t-zone or around nose area. give it a try! :)
great for oily acne prone skin!
This stuff works really well for acne prone skin! It comes in a good sized container and lasts a long time. I've had mine for months and use it every week and it still is half full. My only complaint is that it's messy and gets all over the bathroom as well as in your hair if you're not careful. Other then that it works well to control oil and clear breakouts. I use it about three nights a week to keep my skin soft and clear.
