Lush Coalface Cleanser review

I use this cleanser morning and night and feel it removes any makeup that my makeup wipe may not have managed to remove. My skin is always left feeling clean and smooth.

You get a lot of this product for your money and it lasts a very long time. I cut a small block off and will use that until it runs out and then cut another piece off when needed. I find this handy as one or two of the sides will then contain grainy particles to exfoliate with and the remainder are left nice and smooth. To apply, I dampen my face and rub the preferred side all over my face lightly; I then massage it in with my hands, creating a light grey lather all over my face, which I then rinse off with warm water.

Lush say "Soothing liquorice and charcoal cleansing bar. The ground up charcoal comes from sustainable woodland in the UK and it is very good for your skin. It helps to absorb excess sebum and acts as a mild exfoliator. The sandalwood and softening liquorice help to improve the condition of the skin. Coalface is popular in Japan for lightening the skin. Liquorice root decoction is antibacterial, but also moisturises the skin."

I find this has helped even out my skin tone a lot (possibly due to its skin lightening qualities) and noticed this when I very first started to use it. I recommend it to anyone who may have any acne scars or who would also like to even out their skin tone and also for anyone else as it's a great cleanser and the exfoliating particles never dry out my skin.

  7. Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.
