5 Must-Have Lush Facial Cleansers For Summer

I am a huge fan of the Lush Facial Cleansers and while I love using them year round I especially love these 5 picks for the Summer months.

Here are my 5 favorite Lush Cleanser Picks for Summer!

Lush Ocean Face And Body Scrub Salt – I am finding that Ocean Salt is so refreshing after a day in the sun. I have the self-preserving formula which means there’s no synthetic preservatives. In addition to Ocean Salt it also has avocado butter and lime which make my skin so soft.

Lush Let the Good Times Roll Cleanser – This one smells like fresh cookie dough which has Maize flour and corn meal which gives my face a nice glow.

Lush Dark Angels – I really love this cleanser. Dark Angels is made from charcoal powder and does a wonderful job on my oily skin. I just take a pinch and rub in into a paste in my hand and then rub it on my face. It does stain wash cloths though.

Lush Ultrabland Facial Cleanser – The Ultrabland cleanser is very mild and has beeswax and honey to remove dirt and grim. I personally can’t use this one everyday because I do have more oily skin but it’s such a great moisturizer when my combination skin gets dry. It also has a very mild scent and is supposed to be great for sensitive skin.

Lush Cup O’ Coffee Face & Body Mask – Cup O’ Coffee is technically a mask but I use it as a cleanser. It smells just like fresh brewed coffee and the grain grains do wonders on my skin as an exfoliant. This one definitely wakes me up in the morning and leaves my skin smooth and glowing.

Lush Dark Angels Face and Body Cleanser Review

My  new favorite go-to morning cleanser is Lush Dark Angels which has done wonders for my pores.

What is Lush Dark Angels?

Dark Angels is made from charcoal powder and is for people who have oily skin (which is me), but being that I’m not a teenager I don’t like using harsh oil stripers.

The product is Vegan and the price is $12.95 for 3.5 oz. One note is that it’s “Fresh Made” and expires in 2 months so I plan on buying the 3.5 oz. tub as I need it.

How to use Lush Dark Angels?

Now for the fun part! When you first open the tub you’ll see a large chunk of what looks like black Play-Doh covered in sugar, the scent is licorice (which I love).

To use you just grab about an inch sized pinch and place in the palm of your hand. Next add some water and knead into a black paste. It’s super easy to spread on your face and scrub, just be sure to wear a headband to avoid black hair.

I massage Dark Angels into my face for about 1 minute and wash off with a washcloth, again you washcloth is going to turn black so use a dark one.

You can also use this product in the shower (I haven’t yet) on your entire body.


Why I love Lush Dark Angels.

While I was initially a bit apprehensive about rubbing black Play-doh on my face it’s now one of my favorites.

I have really oily skin that needs constant attention so I have been using this product in the morning and evening. My pores are on the large side and Dark Angels has done a great job in reducing my pore size. My skin literally glows after using this product.

This one is on my keeper list!
