Biggest problem of a oily skin during summer is the greasy feeling which it gives and most of the time face doesn’t feel clean πŸ™ Well,  Lush Dark Angels cleanser can be a solution to this problem especially in hot and sweaty weather.When I started with Lush I tried Lush coal face which I liked therefore I picked this one too although it is way way different from coal face πŸ˜›

Lush Dark Angel Cleanser +Facial cleanser for oily skin

My experience with Lush Dark Angels Cleanser:-


  • Moisturising Well I don’t know how lush defines young but I considered myself young :smug: and gave this cleanser a try.My biggest concern while using this cleanser was dryness.I thought it will dry out my skin and I have to put in loads of moisturizer on my face  but presence of glycerin in it solved my problem .Cleanser never made my skin dry even when I forgot to use moisturiser
  • Exfoliating – I use this cleanser twice a day and because of its abrasive texture it exfoliates my skin well and I have stopped using scrubber on my face since then πŸ™‚
  • Makeup Remover – This is one of the rare product of lush which even removes makeup .I do have to work on eyes a bit when I am wearing waterproof makeup however for every day makeup it cleanse my skin thoroughly which include blush and foundation.For removing makeup  I massage the product for 30 seconds more and my face is squeaky clean.
  • Fragrance – It has  perfume charcoal powder fragrance which might be strong for some.I am pretty comfortable with it but I suggest you to sniff the product before buying  it.

Facial cleanser from Lush for oily skin

You can see product looks like charcoal and when I add water in it and apply it on my face I look no less than a ghost or even better as if I have thrown into a chimney from the terrace :D:D .Though my face goes completely black for a while but thankfully it doesn’t leave  any residue behind  on my face which I may have  to struggle hard with.

  • Cleansing – It removes dead skin easily and makes skin smooth and soft.It keeps my face oil free for long time and using makeup after cleansing from this becomes easy as now I use less blotting paper.
  • Acne It never broke me out but the black mess which it creates may be trouble some for many.


What I liked about Lush Dark Angels Cleanser

  • Cleanse and exfolaite skin thoroughly
  • Helps in removing makeup
  • Exfoliate skin well and brightens up the face
  • 100 gm of product lasts for three months and it doesn’t need to be stored in the fridge
  • Helps in getting rid of the oily feeling
  • Doesn’t break me out


What I didn’t like about Lush Dark Angels Cleanser

  • The black mess which it creates
  • Sensitive skin might find it harsh
  • Not suitable for dry skin at all (combination skin can give it a try)

Will I recommend it to others – Yes, for oily skin or combination oily skin which has blackheads or white heads problem this cleanser is a must try .It is expensive but it lasts for  three months so will cost around 2oo plus a month which is not bad if you compare it with other lush products πŸ™‚

Wise She Rating

  • Cleansing – 5/5
  • Exoflaiting 3.5/5
  • Makeup removing – 3/5
  • Ingredients – 3/5 (does contain SLS)

    jokes apart….the only thing that has kept me away from lush cleansers till today is their slightly abrasive skin is so damn sensitiove that if i happen to scrub my face two days in a row even with besan and dahi….it gets horribly irritated……i m really skepticle of trying lush scrubby cleansers…

        • mm herbalism will suit normal skin as well if i compare both then this one is for skin which has tendency to go greasy where as herbalism doens’t help in oil control.Also it exfoliate better than herbalism and it is more abrasive too .

  3. Did not know that we can get samples while ordering online…. this time online LUSH haul :).. waise bhi my first LUSH shopping was horror they gave me an expired product πŸ™

    • thats gross……i donot understand one thing.why all these high end brands that have come to india think that indians are any less then foreign couterparts as far as spending is concerned…the sa’s at all these counters despite being indians behave as if we the customers are fools…..and treat us like …..

  4. I faced a different kinda prob at MAC..this SA was willingly showing me all the stuff but being a 1st time visiter at MAC asked some suggestions from her and she’s was insisting me to buy whatever I like πŸ™ . she said you must be knowing about your skin tone so better you choose :reallypissed:

  5. alright gals…dinnertime……….see u tomorrow….man halka ho gaya apna mac ka dukhda ro ke… i can have a peacefull beauty sleep….gudnite…… :moon: :moon: :-* :-*

  6. Haha! Bechaari MAC SA..seriously! Doc to usse chodegi nahi…When u go there A, she’ll come wearing russioin red and stun the SAa..Koi aankh utha ke dekh nahi payega.. πŸ˜‰

  7. I wanna use coal face…have you reviewed that one??? I did try the dark angels at their store but felt it to be a bit harsh on my hands only!!! but I was thinking if cola face would suit me..mine is combination skin which is moody and is dry or oily depending on its mood :struggle:
