|| Delightful little LUSH product... Banishes blemishes and controls us oily buggers! ||

I'm just going to jump straight in there and say it, I'm not skinny, I don't have perfect skin, I'm very partial to blemishes and have oily issues.

Oily skin means whilst every girl on the planet (in my mind) waltzes round with beautifully done make up, no shine, lovely dewy-licious looking skin, I sit in the corner blotting and feel every inch of carefully place make up slide away.

I hide from natural lighting, I wear double wear foundation through all weather (even 40 degree heat in Greece) and quite frankly I'm done with that!

I want to be a dewy goddess too! Well... This little beauty might well help me on my travels!

What is it: Dark Angels charcoal facial cleanser

Where is it from: LUSH

RRP: £6.25 per 100g

Is it amazing for oily/combination skin: Quite frankly incredible!

The featured ingredient is: charcoal. I was a little skeptical at first, but fear not, it's an absolute delight! It was created for oilier skins and contains; rhassoul mud, charcoal and black sugar which are combined to make a very absorbent and exfoliating cleanser.

As I said above, I was a little skeptical, but after my first use I fell in love! My pores are very noticeable and this minimised them and cleared them out completely, it left my face feeling so smooth and fresh with no tightness! What more could you ask for?

It makes my skin noticeably healthier looking which I absolutely love and I have been feeling so good without make up on which NEVER happens!

If you have oily/combination skin I would highly recommend trying this product, it's an essential in my shower routine and a fraction of any high end prices!

What cleansers do you like? Can you recommend any other lovely LUSH products?



  1. Just started using the seaweed skincare range from The Body Shop which is also PERFECT for combination /oily skin which I've been struggling to control forever!! Love your blog posts by the way :)

  2. I'd be interested in trying this product. I thought I was gaining confidence in my skin because my overall complexion is pretty even but I have some ugly acne scars that just ruin everything. Oh well. In my mind, every one has perfect skin, too, haha :)

  3. This sounds pretty good. Do you use it everyday?

  4. I have oily troubling skin aswell so I'll definitely be trying this out! x

  5. I just use it when I do my full shower routine- so 3 times a week xxx

  6. So many of my friends moan about their oily skin, I hope this works for you! I have dry skin ;( so much so that patches around my nose always flake, thats really annoying too! I'm a new follower :) - would love for you to check my blog out at some point?

  7. That is the weirdest thing I have ever seen. Haha I have medium skin, it's pretty dry but there are a few parts that are oily. And this is my first time seeing your blog so I don't know if you have mentioned it before but the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder is ridiculous. If you haven't used it you have to!

  8. I'd be so afraid to try that!! But bravo for doing exciting that it actually makes a difference! I'm so tempted to try it - especially since I have oily/combination skin as well!

  9. oh my goodness, this sounds amazing..I've tried so many facemasks from Lush but never found the perfect one for my annoyingly oily, blemish prone skin too!!
    THANK YOU! haha!

  10. Love products with Charcoal, I'll definitely have to try this! Great post! x
