Lush: Coalface Facial Cleanser

So, fresh off talking about how much I love Lush here is a  review on my absolute favorite product by them-- Coalface Cleansing Bar.  

The coalface bar is perfect for anybody who has normal to oily skin.  If you have dry skin steer clear using this as a daily cleanser, the bar might be way to harsh for you and dry you out.  I'm right on the border of normal to oily which is why I think this product works so well for me.  

At first I was leery of buying a "bar" cleanser-- I've always viewed them as moisture stripping and just the idea of them sounded ancient to me.  But, when I tried coalface in the store I was intrigued and bought some to try.  Ever since then I'm already on my second bar (each bar lasts a fair amount of time..my first one lasted me 4 months).  

I personally don't use this product in the morning-- I use it after taking off my makeup, in the shower, on completely clean skin.  I create a lather with the bar and rub into my skin for about 30secs.  Once rinsed off my face feels literally squeaky clean.  I've never felt that before with a cleanser so it originally made me worry that it was making my skin too dry, but it didn't at all!!   

Now, I said earlier that I wouldn't recommend this for dry skin on a daily basis but I would however recommend using this as an exfoliate maybe once or twice a week-- def not more than that.  When I want to exfoliate I put the bar directly to my face, it's grainy and will give you an amazing exfoliating treatment.  But, it can be harsh so I don't use it for too long or apply too much pressure.

I noticed results after using this product about a month into it.  My oily spots are under control and I haven't had a breakout since I started using Coalface!
