Quick review – Lush Coalface
I’m sure I’ve mentioned on more than one occasion that I love all things dirt, clay and other earthly elements to cleanse my face with. Lush Coalface was always going to make it’s way into my bathroom – it was just a matter of time.
This beautiful charcoal grey bar of loveliness makes your face squeaky clean – it takes off whatever is on your face but it doesn’t leave it tight and dry. This lathers quickly to give you a nice asphalt coloured foam and I think there are few bits of grit thrown in for good measure but they are few are far between so don’t worry about this being too rough. You really have to love the scent of licorice and aniseed which I actually hate, but it doesn’t stop me from using this.
Great tip at the end!
Thanks VM, you’d think some things would be so obvious but it took me ages to realise doh!
This does sound interesting, but being a soap, does it contain SLS? I’m kind of afraid of that squeaky clean feeling…
Yes this does contain SLS! So if that’s not your bag then avoid this one hun. x
Have you ever tried Lush’s Dark Angels cleanser? If you like dirt and things of that nature, I think you’ll enjoy that cleanser!
You know Kelly I was looking at that this morning and I totally want it! Gah there is always something isn’t there?
great review! my fav is Fresh Farmacy. If u have used can u pls tell me the difference? thx
Not used Fresh Farmacy – it’s make with camomile and calamine for irritated and sensitive skin.
This sounds great!! and what i great tip, seems so obvious now you have said it!
I know right? It only occurred to me when I looked at the edge of it and had one of those ‘Doh’ moments!
My other half loves this stuff, we cut it into cubes and store in an airtight box. I love the smell of this but I can’t use it on my own face which is a bit upsetting! Great review xx
Jamie loves it too but he likes to use it to wash his hands which can be quite annoying if I’m using it to wash my face. Your fella sounds a bit more clever than mine he he! x
I do like this one, have you tried keeping it in a soap dish where the water drips through in to an under dish type thing? They are good for lush shampoo bars too
I know what you are talking about and I’ve never really found a good one. I want a really nice painted enamel one. If you know any websites that sell them let me know. xoxo
I love coalface! I’ve reviewed it before on my blog too!
I have this great thing that I put my soaps on. All the water drains from it and it keeps my soaps dry! That way, my soap is never mushy!!! I’ve had this thing for years and have no idea where I got it from. Should I do a blog post about it?
Yes please do a blog post about it, maybe I can find one similar to it. I’ve tried every soap dish that I can get a hold off and they still melt my soap. x
I used to use this!! It always reminded me of the movie Annie Hall!
Really please explain? Although I’ve never seen that movie
