LUSH Dark Angels Cleanser

LUSH are famous for their bath bombs and soaps but they also sell a fantastic skin care range which includes literally something for every skin type, including some great cleansers.

The cleanser I'm using at the moment is Dark Angels which is aimed at younger, oily skin. Solid cleasners look scary, but they are actually really easy to use. All you do is pick a chunk out the pot, add some water and Hey Presto! you have a paste which you apply to your face as your cleanser. Once applied to the face, wash off with some warm water. LUSH like to make their products in a solid form so there is no water in them therefore less preservatives :-)

It has black sugar in which gives it the scrub effect and I really like this because I don't feel I've washed my face properly until I've scrubbed it. The black sugar stimulates and exfoliates the skin. Dark Angels is black due to charcoal. The charcoal is powdered and absorbs any excess oils. Another of the main ingredients is Rhassoul mud which, to be honest, I've never heard of until I used this product. Rhassoul mud is mined from the ground and is great for the skin as it cleanses and removes grease from the skin (great for oily skin).

I was a bit sceptical of Dark Angels as I had been using Herbalism (another lush cleanser) which I loved but I wanted a scrub for my face. I like the exfoliation of Dark Angels, it leaves the skin super soft and feels clean without the weird tight feeling other face scrubs give me. It feels really good to scrub without destroying your skin :-)

After one use I noticed that it did really help with oil reduction on my skin (one of my MALE housemates even commented that my skin looked great!) but it hasn't really helped with my breakouts and blemishes.

Unfortunately it's not recommended to use this cleanser more than once or twice a week which is annoying because it is fantastic and it means I have to use another cleanser for the rest of the week. Overall I really recommend Dark Angels for oily or combination skins; it's really helped me I just wish I could use it everyday!!

Dark Angels is £5.95 and you can buy it from any Lush shop or www.lush.co.uk

Have you used any of the solid cleansers? What do you think of them?
