Angels with dirty faces

I don't think I'd stepped foot in LUSH since I was about 14, and although I'm not entirely sure what led me to the store in Bluewater last week, I did not leave disappointed. The store still had the distinctive LUSH "smell" but everything seemed a little more glossy and less rustic than I remembered.

I ended up buying a 100g pot of their Dark Angels scrub for £5.50. I was a bit unsure about the purchase at first because a seemed a little pricey for a small tub but trust me, it's well worth the price.

The scrub is made of charcoal, Rhassoul mud, black sugar, and sandalwood and it definitely smells "earthy". it looks likes a lump of soft, black, charcoal paste and you only need a smidgen to cover your whole face. I mix it with a little bit of water before spreading it on my face and then I rub rub away!

The sugar granules felt a bit big at first but they quickly dissolved into smaller pieces. The scrub washes off easily but it leaves your sink/ bath in a bit of a mess, so I guess it's good you're only supposed to use it once or twice a week depending on how oily your skin is. It made my skin feel UH-MAZING! It felt soooo soft and not at all dry. I didn't have that "tight" feeling I often feel after washing my face and this feeling lasted up until I applied my moisturiser. I'm finding it hard to stick to the twice a week thing though because I want to use it everyday but I guess the sugar granules would be hard on sensitive skin every day. Needless to say, I heartily recommend this scrub to everybody, particularly those with oily or combination skin.

PROS: You get a lot of product for the price, leaves skin feeling considerably softer and refreshed, pleasant smell

CONS: The sugar granules are a little large, the product is quite messy and your sink won't thank you!

Love, life, and flawless skin

    I used Dark Angels and I think its fab, it eliminates grease whilst smoothing the skin, I also use this on my chest for time to time too! Another great one to use to eliminate oily skin is herbalism, that leaves a matt finish! :)


  3. Ia herbalism from Lush as well? I'm really loving their products at the moment. Thanks for your comment!
