Please bring back the old formula

San Francisco | 21 days ago

I used to love this face cleanser. Literally my face needed it, especially in the summer. I didn't know they changed the formula when I ordered it so when it got here I figured I'd try it. Now my face is breaking out. The soap has a really off putting smell to it (not like the old scent). And it's dissolving a lot quicker.

Kinda harsh

Even though I larger up in my hands first before using on my face, it still feels really scratchy and harsh. My skin looks ok, but my cheeks feel ab tiny but raw, like I've been out in really cold temps and it sort of froze the top layer of skin.The licorice smell isn't super subtle, but I don't hate the smell. The soap just feels really rough.

Miss the old formula

Stockholm | 1 month ago

Started using this in my teens and continued to use it whenever my skin has been breaking out. It has always worked wonders. I bought it again for a few weeks ago, but the new formula is really off putting. It's way to scrubby on the surface area and the rest is like a soap? Bring the old formula back please!

The only face wash for me

I love this stuff. It's been my go-to cleanser for years. It's the only face wash I've found that consistently keeps my skin clear. I'd be lost without it!
Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Don't like the scent...

star-star-filled star-star-filled star-star-filled star-star-empty star-star-empty

Philadelphia | 1 month ago

The licorice scent is very strong to me, and I can still smell it after applying makeup. It also leaves my skin feeling rubbery. I've only been using it about a week, so I don't know yet if it's helping clear my skin.

Like washing with broken glass

star-star-filled star-star-empty star-star-empty star-star-empty star-star-empty

Frederick, Maryland | 1 month ago

It feels like broken glass on my skin. It's not listed but it must have salt in it, or mine had a serious formula mixup. Lucky I got this and Movis as a sample, and Movis is MUCH better.

I love this thing.

This face wash is awesome. I thought the smell was weird at first but I grew on me and now I love it. It makes your face feel clean and soft and I will keep buying it forever if I can.

just bring back the old formula I've been a loyal lush customer since 2006/2007. Please listen to your loyal customers and bring back the original formula

New formula a huge let down

star-star-filled star-star-filled star-star-filled star-star-empty star-star-empty

Hamilton | 1 month ago

This used to be my favourite facial cleanser. It worked wonders on my combination skin. Then when I re-ordered my usual bar this summer, I had noticed it wasn't the same Coalface I remembered at all. Dissolves super quickly and makes a huge mess of the the shower. Now it also seems that the black coal face goodness is only on the outer layer of the bar. The rest is just cheap goopy soap. Please bring back the original Coalface.

Mixed feelings
