Bought this product from Lush because I thought that using something with 'natural' ingredients would help battle those pesky spots and keep them at bay. Alas, I was wrong. This product just makes me break out even more, I don't know whether it's because when I rinse it off I still have the product stuck in my pores which I can't scrub off or what. Don't buy!!
I would LOVE this if they took out the large sugar particles -- as it is, it's just way too abrasive to be used on a daily basis which is a shame because I otherwise like everything about it. I've resorted to using it as a mask 1-2x weekly and following up with a regular cleanser to remove any leftover residue. For daily use I prefer the Coalface bar or Herbalism. It's nice as a mask and leaves my skin feeling calm and smooth. It also seems to help shrink active breakouts a bit. I'm using it as a body scrub as well in order to use it up before it expires and it works great for that.
This stuff is amazing. I have tried countless other over the counter products... creams, scrubs, toners... nothing worked! The BP and SA chemicals were so harsh on my skin and they still weren't even clearing my acne. Long story short, I (hopelessly) walked in to the LUSH store one day and they recommended this for my adult cystic acne (oily/combination, dry/flaky, red/blotchy skin). I was miserable until I tried this stuff. After ONE WEEK my acne was greatly reduced. I barely got any new pimples, and if I did they were tiny and healed quickly. I think those little pimples were already formed under my skin before I started this product. Anyway, now my skin is glowing with no new pimples! This stuff is also reducing my acne scars. Oh any my skin isn't as oily! PLEASE try this stuff! It is a miracle!
This product is great for acne prone combination skin. I have a dry forehead and oily acne prone chin. I have been using this product every 2 days, leaving it on for 15 or 20 minutes before drying it off. It has significantly helped my breakouts. All I need now is something to get rid of the left over acne scars. :D
I have really sensitive skin, so when I was using it everyday it was too harsh of an exfoliater. But using it every 2 days, has been perfectly fine. If you're not used to serious scrubs it will take some time getting used to it. I do not suggest using this if you have no acne and just dry skin.
This possible contributed to making my breakouts worse. To get started, it left a black residue which I had to use makeup remover to get rid of, and yes--I have heard of using toner to get rid of it. Secondly, it smelt...weird. Thirdly, it was a little too abrasive for my skin, even though it was a cool black color to look at, it felt like little pebbles on my face. I would not recommend this. I couldn't stand using it longer than a couple of days since I was running out of makeup removing pads fast.
I feel like this has cleared me up more than any other product has! Its not like one of those products that destroy your skin and dry it out to get rid of the acne. I actually love washing my face with this stuff because I love how my skin feels afterwards. Its a fantastic exfoliator and leaves your skin glowing and feeling so smooth and wonderfully soft. It doesn't clear all of my acne but my skin definitely feels clean and healthy, and it has cleared me up quite a bit!
This is good stuff for all of you who have never felt like your skin as never felt...smooth.
I have oily, acne skin and decided to try something more natural after I got sick of buying 100 cases of Acne free. so I found LUSH. After trying herbalism and it not being strong enough I tried this. the charcoal sounded odd but after reading more it made sence. It also has tea tree oil in it which sooths the skin and sugar (please don't eat it). After the first night i put a pea size amount in my hand and a bit of water to get a paste. It was weird washing my face with it becuase i could feel it scrubing. After I washed it off, WOW! my skin has never felt so smooth!!! I can't stop touching my face (which I should lol). I use this with Enz...moisturizer and Tea tree toner and I have wonder feeling skin.
Note: not for dry or sensitive skin, it'll kill your skin and don't push to hard. As well as for me this didn't get rid of my acne but cleared it up quite a bit so I'm happy :)
I was really impressed with this product. My friend and I went to our local lush store to stock up on some lush goodies and I stopped to look at this product. The sales associate offered to give my friend and I a facial. She used dark angels and after she was done, I'll admit I was hesitant to buy this! I am so happy I did though. This product is amazing. I use dark angels as my morning cleanser (my makeup goes on really smooth after using dark angels) and proactive as my night time cleanser. The two work wonders.
A tip: like other reviews have said. make sure you use a toner after cleansing with dark angels. It gets rid of extra black/ gray color the cleanser leaves behind. :)
I can't say this enough. I LOVE this product.
Oh: also try lush cupcake made fresh mask.. and the vanishing cream facial moisturizer cream! <3 both of those products too!
