Review: Lush - Coal Face Facial Cleanser

[photo from: lush.co.uk]
"Sometimes you have to get dirtier to get cleaner. Once you go black you never go back. Designed for oilier skins, this soap is gentle enough for the face, but don’t stop there, what’s good for the face is great for the body too. Coalface includes liquorice infusion for softening and charcoal which absorbs grease and gently exfoliates the skin" - lush.co.uk

I have been using this for many years now, and always seem to go back to it. As a soap it doesn't seem to have the same appeal as some of the more modern gels or foams, but that doesn't mean it is not a good product.

This soap does a great job of cleansing the skin, although as the description suggests it does make your face black, so you have to be careful when rinsing it off if you were at a sink rather than in the shower as it may stain your clothes.

There are a couple of bits in the soap which does exfoliate your skin, but it isn't harsh and you could use it on a daily basis. Basically you wet your face and hands, rub the bar of soap in your hands to create a lather and then massage it over your face, and then wash off.

    1. It's quite good, just make sure to wash it off properly :)
