Lush Coalface Review

Hi everyone,

The end of last week was really busy, I thought I’d have time to post another blog but I just didn’t. I also thought I’d have a few lie ins but I’ve been up early every day of my holiday so far. I’m looking forward to a bit of rest during this week!

If you’ve been following my blog for a while you probably know that I’m always on the look for a good product to help with spots. I usually go for something relatively cheap, almost always a Superdrug product but this time I decided to splurge on a product which I have seen people rave about, coalface from Lush.

Coalface is a cleanser in the form of a soap and it contains rosewood, sandalwood and charcoal, it’s antiseptic and absorbent. You can use the product on the face and body, it’s supposed to be gentle, drying enough to remove oils but not dry out the skin and many people have said that it’s cured their acne. I was going through a bit of a bad breakout when I picked this up as it is more than I would usually pay for a cleanser. I got a massive piece and it really does last a long time. I keep it in the shower so the outside is always slimy and doesn’t need to be massively lathered up but it doesn’t melt onto the shower floor or lose its mass. In that respect, I am really impressed. It’s very easy to use, just lather up as you would any soap and rub into the skin. I quite like the earthy, soapy scent but I didn’t notice too much of a liquorice smell, which is okay because I don’t like liquorice. You can really feel it working, even at my most oily the soap immediately cleans up my skin and it becomes literally squeaky clean. It doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin and it’s really helped with breakouts. Since I have been using it every day my skin has had fewer spots and when they do appear they don’t last as long. I have been stopped using other spot products as this works well all by itself. If you do have problems with acne or spots then I suggest you try out coalface for yourself because it worked really well for me and I think it’s going to be a product in my skincare arsenal for some time. The 126g piece I picked up cost me ยฃ8.13 but after one month the bar has barely decreased in size at all.
