I wanted to start off my Lush series with my newest favourite product from Lush – Dark Angels. Which is an cleansing exfoliator, made from ingredients below.
This is great for detoxifying your skin while improving your skin’s texture, clarity, flakiness, dryness, and elasticity.
Do not be alarmed by this ingredient if you have oily skin. This will not break out your skin, instead, it will rejuvenate and lightly hydrate your skin along with reducing signs of aging. It is well known that avocados have a high level of Vitamin E, which is an antioxidant that works to neutralize free radicals and prevent cellular damage from occurring.
This ingredient works to absorb excess oils along with deep cleansing the skin.
This ingredient works to exfoliate your skin leaving your skin smooth and free of flakiness.
I bought this product because it contained black sugar and charcoal, which are ingredients that are great for exfoliating, cleansing, and absorbing oils from the skin. The product, as you can see in the pictures above, consists of a fine grain mixed in with larger black sugar crystals. This gives you an amazing exfoliation that cleanses the skin without stripping it dry. It is an amazing product if you are looking for an exfoliation product, especially for the men out there. It provides a medium to strong exfoliation, therefore using it once to twice a week would be ample. I love this product as it leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth, and lightly hydrated, I also have no noticed any breakouts following the usage of this product. On the down side, it is a grainy consistency without much to hold it together, which makes it hard to pick up the product to spread onto your skin, even after mixing it with a little water. However, once you get it onto your skin it is easy to massage into your face without losing a lot of the product. Overall, I was really pleased with this product and would recommend this to you if you love product made from natural ingredients. Lastly, just as a side note, the product will make a small mess in your sink during usage, but is easily washed away with a light splash of water.
I personally am a little picky and sensitive when it comes to smells and this is what often turns me away from using Lush product. This would product would definitely fall under this category, as it does carry a light charcoal scent paired with a rubbery smell. On the plus side, this product’s fragrance is not extremely repulsive nor does it give me a head ache. Overall, if the smell does not bother you it is a great product to try.
