Although I get quite a few compliments from makeup artists and friends about my skin, I'm not immune to the occasional blemish, especially around that time of the month. To the rescue: the newest product from LUSH, Grease Lightning ($12.95) is a gel formula meant to zap blemishes and absorb excess oil. Antibacterial ingredients like tea tree oil, thyme, and rosemary shrink zits. Meanwhile, lavender oil regulates oil production, green grape juice gently cleanses skin, and aloe vera soothes inflammation.
So, how does Grease Lightning measure up? Surprisingly, the bevy of natural ingredients does an admirable job of keeping sporadic breakouts under control. It visibly shrinks zits overnight and takes away some of the inflammation and redness. Since I use it as a spot treatment, the 1.5 oz container is more than enough. I also like dabbing some on congested pores around my nose and cheekbones to clear them up gradually. Overall, I'm impressed enough to keep Grease Lightning in the medicine cabinet for the rare skin emergency.
