It's coarser than Coalface, exfoliates more (a little too much -- personally, I don't think I could use it every day because it's a little rough), but it is BLACK BLACK BLACK. I don't like to have to clean up the sink and the counter after washing my face, so I threw out the sample after using it a couple of times. Try it and let us know what you think!

I'm curious about the new Dark Angels stuff. I think I'll have to get a sample when I go to Chicago in a couple weeks. Other than the mess, how does it feel? I use Coalface now and it works pretty well for me.

CCG, I also got a sample of Dark Angels. It is supposed to be good for my type of skin, but HOLY MOTHER OF COD does it make a gigantic black mess. You've been warned.

My absolute favourite skincare product appears to have been discontinued and I'm having trouble finding something that compares. It was the Aveeno oatmeal complexion bar - not the moisturizing oatmeal bar, which is still available, and not the new complexion bar, which is a standard, perfumey, chemically, drying soap that my outrageously sensitive skin hates. The one I want was quite oatmealy and had a silty texture - not scrubby, but not too slippery - and was completely scentless and gentle. The oatmeal did the work, not the soap, so it dried out my blackheads and smoothed out my skin without overdrying it or overwhelming it with chemically soapy stuff. I have never had better skin than I did when I had that soap, and I was incredibly dismayed when I discovered I couldn't get it anymore. I've tried some of Aveeno's other products, but it appears that they've been bought out by a company that's more about marketable cosmetic products than gentle stuff for unfortunate people like me who break out in a rash at the touch of soap. I've been using the St. Ives apricot scrub, which is fantastic, but still too strong for me, and my skin is getting rough and blackheady. I'm so fed up now I'm thinking of making my own special soap. Suggestions?

I've never used Angels on Bare Skin but apparently they have a new facial soap coming out called Dark Angels or something and it's supposed to be a combo of Angels and Coalface. I might try it out.

Bump.

So, speaking of Lush, have any of you used Angels on Bare Skin lately? I got a sample from them, used it for a week, and I'm kind of not thrilled about its consistency and pinching off a bit of it, working it into a paste in the palm of my hand with a bit of water, and then smearing it on my face. No matter how little I used (because at first I thought I was using too much), it just sort of flaked off my face as I rubbed it in. What's the point of that? Did I just get an especially dry sample or is this how it always is? Anyone have any tips? I might just go back to Coalface.

I agree, Dr. Bronner's soaps rock! Plus they clean everything - hair, body, baby, dog, kitchen counter, floor, car....Can't beat it.

Benetint is fabulous but I'm a Benefit whore wink.gif.

Be careful though if you're accident-prone/apply make up hurriedly as there's no way it would come out if you spilled it. I have an even harder time as I have the pocket pal, which is benetint and gloss in the same tube (v handy!)

blanchedeveraux - a friend of mine just bought this stuff: Benefit Benetint. It's pretty cool stuff. Looks very natural. I wanted to buy it as well but didn't have the money at the time. Maybe I'll treat myself closer to my birthday.

My favorite products for cleansing are Apricot Scrub by St. Ives and Aveeno Clear Complexion Cleansing Pads. They work best for me. And I have tried EVERYTHING from high end to low end and always come back to these two for cleansing.

Marianita - I'm totally with you on the Bath & Body Works stuff - makes me VERY rashy, and I always get at least two gift sets for Xmas. But, even if I don't have receipts, they've been good about taking stuff back, when I explain that I'm allergic to their products, and then I exchange for candles or a bathrobe or whatever.

My top five products:
1. Cosmetic Lad moisturizer by LUSH
2. Aztec Clay Mask
3. Rosehip Seed oil (for redness & scars)
4. Dream Cream by LUSH
5. Apricot Scrub by St. Ives

i LOVE weleda skin food. my skin is super dry and i get weird rash-y dry skin in the winter and i use skin food on it and it goes away, and i even use it on my lips when they get chapped. i just wish i could find something cheaper that i wasn't totally allergic to.

and i HATE that for christmas i got a bath and body works gift box. i wish i could use that stuff but my skin reacts weirdly to it....
