I've been looking around for a nice exfoliating cleanser and I believe I've found a winner!
I used to have extremely oily skin. But I believe living in Las Vegas has changed that. The dry heat and air has snatched the oil from my skin (and I'm not mad about it!). I now only deal with oil around my nose while wearing makeup. When I have my dance gigs, I wear heavy makeup (the lighting plays NO games). When I get home, I immediately wash it off. I use Neutrogena makeup removing wipes to remove the initial layer of makeup then I go for a good scrub to get the makeup out of my pores so I can let my skin breathe.
While in the Miracle Mile shops here in Vegas, I came across Lush. I've only heard great things about them and I'm not sure why I never tried their products sooner. I saw a photo of someone using Dark Angel so I asked the associate what it was good for.
1. It absorbs oil.
2. Brightens complexion.
3. Unclogs blocked pores.
So, I tried it and I loved it. I love the exfoliation. It was gentle yet effective. My skin felt hydrated but not oily. I was happy with how clean my skin felt, and smooth like a baby's bottom. I have been dealing with a few dark spots on my cheek from breakouts in the past and after a week of using this, I feel that my complexion is a bit brighter and my spots are lightening up.
After washing my face, I always follow up by downing a bottle of water. Never hurts.
