Lush has given us two new products to help with oily, acne prone skin.
First up is the cleanser Dark Angels( no relation to the 90s TV show). This is a grainy scrub that is truly black. You will have black on your hands and little pieces may go flying on your sink. It smells kind of like licorice and does a nice job of cleansing without drying the skin out. Key ingredients are : anti- bacterial Rhassoul mud straight from Morocco, powdered charcoal to absorb oil as it gives you a good scrub, and soothing rosewood and sandalwood essential oils to keep your skin soft.
Dark Angels is old by weight and 1/4 lb. is $ 11.95
Grease Lightning Spot Treatment is the second product. A gel in a pump bottle,. this is meant to put on oily areas, or spot treat acne. It uses witch hazel, tea tree oil, thyme, rosemary, lavender oil ( helps regulate oil secretion) and aloe vera gel. I find that this is very gentle and non drying. I actually wish it were stronger. It did good on the T- zone helping clear up small blemishes and cuts the oil as soon as you tap it on. It also functions as a cleanser , and can be dabbed on anytime throughtout the day.
Grease Lightning sells for $ 9.95 for 1.5 oz
Both of these products are great for men too. There are plenty of men struggling with oily skin and these are not girly in any way.
