Q:How does Coalface compare to Fresh Farmacy? Is coalface more gentle or more powerful on sensitive skin?Asked on 1/11/2013 by Anonymous
A:Coalface contains charcoal powder and salt. This results in a very gentle scrub which most people love, but which may also make it a bit harsh for more sensitive skin types. Fresh Farmacy would be the recommended choice for sensitive skin.Answered on 2/1/2013 by Anonymous
Q:Can I use this if pregnant? Many articles say that you should avoid many things for your skin while pregnant including acne products and treatments. Is this a safe alternative and if not this one which one?Asked on 12/3/2012 by Newbie mommy Rachel from Somewhere, MD
A:We do our best to use our ingredients at low enough concentrations to be safe for everyone to use, but you may experience unique sensitivities during pregnancy. If you have any doubts, it's a good idea to bring the ingredient listing to your doctor, who will be able to give you a more personalized and specific recommendation!Answered on 3/8/2013 by Brandy from LUSH
Q:I have been using Coalface daily/every other day for about 2 months now. I also switch in Ocean Salt once a week. I believe my skin fits the criteria for the cleanser but my face seems to continue to break out and even more now. I was hoping that it was just my skin getting used to it (cleaning out all my dirty blemishes!) but am becoming more concerned that it isn't for me. Is this typical when beginning use?Asked on 9/6/2012 by Kaleena from Syracuse, NY
A:I'm new to the products, but my follow up question/ answer would be - are you using a moisturizer after? I was given a sample of vanishing cream for afterward, and its perfect in every way! It's not a heavy cream and not oily. If you aren't using it, I would suggest trying it out to see if it balances out your skin. Maybe you are over drying or messing up the sebum production too much. If you are already using a moisturizer, maybe you could go back to lush with your unused portion and try switching to fresh Farmacy to see if it is more your speed!Answered on 9/25/2012 by Clever Pepper from Ridgeley, WV
A:It takes at least 3 weeks of using a new product to see the full effect of the product on your skin. If these products aren't working out for you at the 2-month point, it sounds like they aren't making your skin happy. Perhaps your skin is getting too dry from the products, in which case, make sure you're using a moisturizer for oily skin, such as Vanishing Cream. Feel free to send us an email or give us a call and we'd be happy to talk to you about which product may work out better you.Answered on 11/2/2012 by Anonymous

A:When it comes to our solid bar cleansers - CoalFace and Fresh Farmacy - they have a shelf life of 14 monthsAnswered on 8/30/2012 by Anonymous
Q:Can I use this daily? Or is the exfoliation too harsh?Asked on 7/1/2012 by Eliza loves LUSH from Olympia, WA
A:It depends on your skin! Many people use it as a daily cleanser with no issue, but some prefer using it a little bit less frequently. If you are worried, try starting out using it every second day, and seeing how your skin reacts. If it feels good, you can try it every day. If it feels a little bit much, you can cut back to only a few times a week. The exfoliation in this bar is definitely on the gentle side, so lots of people with oily skin have a lot of success with it!Answered on 7/13/2012 by Laura from LUSH
