Don't like the scent...

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

Philadelphia | 4 days 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

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

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

I am in love with this product. My skin has been decent for the last 10 years since high school, however my job requires me to wear a mask for 8 hours a day and for the past year I've been having crazy bad maskne. I tried tons of different combinations of products to no avail, until I gave this a try a few weeks ago. I agree that it's too rough to rub directly onto your face, I prefer to lather in my hands first. I don't mind the smell too much, it's kind of like a vaguely earthy liquorice scent... but you're def not going to buy this product for its scent. My acne got worse for a few days before it got better using this, but it did eventually get MUCH better. I use this product every day and the only time I felt it was too harsh was after my face got sunburned and windburned from skiing. Along with the Tea Tree toner and Celestial moisturizer, Coalface has saved me from terrible painful maskne.

This soap is amazing! I've had acne for years and this has really helped in clearing it up! Including getting rid of my acne scars. I use it every morning and night, followed by breath of fresh air toner and imperialis moisturizer and it's the best routine ever!!!

Works great for me

I never heard of Lush I was in Italy in the summer of 2019. Once I started using this day and night my skin just started to clear up. I have mix skin T line oily and then everything else dry but my eyebrows do get super dry. I bought an extra one to make sure it would have another bar. The second one just ran out and I bought a new one a few weeks ago. It does dry up my face but it doesn't feel or look bad. I use a clean and clear moisturizer and now a toner from Ren skincare. All 3 products have cleared up my face tremendously. My face has no small bumps on the forehead and my skin looks and feel soft.

Too drying

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

Seattle, WA | 27 days ago

I really wanted to love this facial bar, but found it to leave my skin feeling tight and with dry patches after using it. I have combination skin, and usually have some dry skin around my nose, but after using this found that the dry skin got worse. The two stars are for the scent which was nice and light, and for the exfoliation, which felt good without being too scrubby.
