Lush Fresh Farmacy vs. Coalface Facial Cleansing Bar Soap Review
I only have a picture of Fresh Farmacy because I'm sure you don't want to see my wet, used up bar of soap and I forgot to photograph Coalface when I bought it months ago.
I've had Coalface for several months and Fresh Farmacy for a couple of weeks, so here are my thoughts...
This stuff smells like Angels on Bare Skin (heavenly).
It hasn't reduced my oiliness (not that it claims to do so).
It doesn't leave the skin too squeaky-clean (it feels more moisturized than coalface, but not really moisturized).
Other than that, I haven't really seen any benefits or improvements, it's just a really quick and easy way to wash your face first thing in the morning.
Smells charcoal-y, but not overwhelming. It smells very neutral, not girly or boyish, not fragrance-y or earthy, it's just all around a very neutral scent.
Might kind of reduce facial oils, but not enough to talk about or notice or care about (at least for my super oily crazy skin).
Leaves the skin feeling squeaky-clean and somewhat tight.
One thing that is different about Coalface compared to Fresh Farmacy is that I adore Coalface as a body soap! This may be a little TMI, just a warning... but I have been using Coalface on my outer thighs about every third day and it has improved my skin texture and behavior there. I usually get ingrown hairs, tiny bumps/pimples in that general area and Coalface has really helped reduce that, just in time for summertime! :)
I'd recommend both of these little guys for their own unique reasons.
Thanks for reading!
