I love this! It really cleans and makes pores vanish. I know soap is bad for you skin whether oily or not, but I still use it to really clean out my city-grime ridden complexion.
I like using bar cleansers because they're so easy and don't make a mess, so I was predisposed to like coalface. That said, coalface also has pleasing exfoliating bits in it, and it's black and shimmery, so very pretty to look at. I'm going to be using coalface for a long time...
excellent product for oily skin!
I love using solid products because they don't use any packaging and are good for the environment
I also love this soap for what it does to my skin . not overdrying but does give it a nice tight squeaky clean feel and cuts dirt and oil
try it you will love it!
this is my all time favorite, my one and only face cleanser. i used to use it all the time back home in the UK but when i moved to the states i couldn't find it anywhere! i'm so glad i figured out to order it on lush.com.... my face has been yucky w/o this cleanser. coalface is the best for my oily skin. i rarely get breakouts and it doesn't irritate or dry out my skin. i love the natural ingredients and that odd licorice/pepper smell. everyone should give this a try for and see what natural products can do for their skin!!
One of the nicest facial soaps I've ever tried. Cleared up my spotty skin and keeps it smooth and soft. My skin is oily but this is a lot gentler than other soaps for oily skins I've tried
A wonderful facial soap for oily skin. Lathers well, but isn't drying... and it smells (and looks!) like black liquorice. I would literally cry if Lush stopped making this product.
I liked this better than fresh pharmacy, but it's still not as good as what I usually use on my face. I have oily skin, and it's sensitive too, and this soap didn't cause me to break out, but it's not good enough to switch to full time.
It looks really funky in the soapdish, even though it does make a bit of a mess. Initially it lathers black which is creepy and yet somehow cool at the same time. Once you wear off the layer of charcoal powder itlathers normally. Takes off all makeup and grime, even eye makeup (keep your eyes tightly closed) Smells of sandalwood with an undertone of licorice (??? yes, weird but it works, trust me). One lippie off 'cause it costs twice as much as Lush's other soaps.
A great cleanser that has changed my grudge against soaps for face! This takes a while to rinse off, but it surprisingly removes all makeup, even stubborn mascara, and leaves me refreshed with no tightness. Very good at controlling acne without stripping or chemicals.
EDIT: can be drying... i would stick to it for summer only or just use on body breakouts.
I've been using a bar of this for a few months - it's like the magic soap bar.. never seems to get any smaller. It has a nice lemony, lavendar, licorice kind of smell. Seems to make my pores smaller and controls oil. I use this at night and my Kala Corp. Lanolin Agg Tval, Eggwhite Facial Soap in the morning.
