Review: Lush Grease Lightening....

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

The UK LUSH shop managers and the manufacturing team were challenged to come up with a new product idea. The winning team came up with this super effective tea tree, rosemary and witch hazel gel, a spot cleanser for acne-prone skin. Dab on a tiny bit (with a clean finger) of this wonderful gel and you'll feel it working straight away. Use it on one spot or many and watch them shrivel up and retire. Go Greased Lightning!

-Perfect for beginning stage breakouts

-No irritation

-No drying out of the skin

-Dries clears and doesn’t flake

-Soothing to the breakouts

-Works well under makeup


-Doesn’t work as well on breakouts with a head or cystic acne

-Too much products comes out in one pump

Jamie’s Take:

I used Grease Lightening when I was having a hellish breakout. I had some cystic breakouts, irritated skin and small breakouts all at once! I used it on all of it and the smaller, newer pimples cleared out overnight. I also used it in the morning and then applied foundation and powder and Grease Lightening didn’t flake or move and the combo of three didn’t irritate my skin. It’s a great ‘stage one’ spot treatment but for advanced acne, it didn’t work. Also, it’s a great product if you ‘greening’ your regimen and you need to add a spot treatment.
