Hey guys, just thought I'd share this thing that's been helping me with dry skin.

 

Sometimes when I use too much harsh cleansers/scrubs/acne gels on my face I still have breakouts but then get really yucky dry, flaky skin between my eyebrows and around my smile lines, where the skin cracks. I use this only when the dryness gets uncontrollable.

It does leave my skin a bit oily but it normally doesn't break me out. It's called Lush Dark Angels. It contains charcoal, avocado oil, mud and a few more natural ingredients. Also, it does contain glycerine so be aware of that, however I do feel that using it maybe once every month or so it doesn't impact my skin negatively.

It is messy so only use it in the shower if you were to try it out.

Awesome, me too :) Just maybe try a patch test first to make sure it's not going to aggravate your skin though, I wouldn't want that to happen :) We never know how other's skin may react.
