Lush Herbalism Review
So I had been using Dark Angels for about a month or so and I saw some real improvements at first; however, as feared, my skin slowly started going back to its normal oily self. :( So I made the decision to try out Herbalism.
A lot of people have issues with the scent of Herbalism, but it doesn't bother me at all. I really don't think it smells strongly of vinegar, like most say, I think it has more of an herbally/green scent than anything else.
It does have a couple different oils in it, and you can tell because it takes a bit of massaging to get the product to mix with the water in order to create a paste to apply to the face. However, I think the oil in Herbalism helps to cling to the oils in your face, drawing it out and cleaning it away. It doesn't leave your face feeling squeaky clean, dry, and tight, which is great.
This product is a little more difficult to work with on your face because of that oil, I believe, it just doesn't glide on like other cleansers, you have to work at it to keep all the bits on your skin from falling off.
In all honesty, however much I do love using Herbalism, I really haven't seen any improvements in my skin. It didn't drastically reduce my oil on first use, like Dark Angels did. I enjoy cleansing with it, and I haven't seen any negative reaction, but it hasn't helped my skin either.
Overall, I think it's a good cleanser and I like it, but it hasn't improved the oily condition of my skin.
So... bottom line, I am still on the hunt for a cleanser that will actually help my oily skin over time. :(
