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.

Used it for the first time today and unlike the Dark Angels it did not stick inside my pores. Best face cleansing product I have ever used! Hands down!

The new version of COALFACE is disappointing

Indianapolis, Indiana | 29 days ago

COALFACE used to be my absolute favorite face wash and it was the only product I tried that finally had the right balance for my skin. Anytime I heard someone talking about a face wash I immediately recommended COALFACE because it had been so amazing for me. They not only changed the shape and how you buy (used to be like the bulk soap so you could buy chunks at a time), but they have also really changed the formula. After years of using this product 100% satisfied I'm now once again searching for a new face wash. This new version makes my face incredibly red when I try and wash my face. These bars don't last long at all and they are too large to fit in any of the tins so I end up with marks all over my tile. It honestly seems like they have used a bunch of cheap fillers to make a large piece of soap. You could buy a chunk about 1/4 of the size of this bar of the old version and it would last you longer than this whole bar. I would much rather pay a premium for the old version that actually worked.

Don't do it

I was really excited for this to be my favorite product and it totally let me down. For background, my skin is sensitive but typically behaves other than blackheads on my chin and nose. I bought this to help with the blackheads and mask-ne. Immediately my face started heavily breaking out. I read a review saying to expect a skin purge so I stuck with it. Soon my entire chin was covered in painful breakouts like I've never experienced. After two weeks (and some tears) I switched back to my original cleanser and my face recovered and cleared within 3 days.

Obsessed!

My cousin recommend this to me as we both get cystic acne from a thyroid disorder we both have. I don't think I'll ever use anything else on my face! I can't even believe how fast my face started to clear up and how great it works at absorbing extra oils! Some of the marks on my face had been there for literal years and my face if finally clear! No maskne either! This in combination with Light Touch has been a heaven sent for me! I also use it on my underarms to help with body odour (thyroid again) and it's amazing! 100% will remain a staple in my beauty routine!

Helps keep break outs under control

I create a lather in my hands first, can be a bit rough when used directly on skin, a little goes a long way. Leaves my skin feeling matte but not dry, my skin is oily with some dry spots. Stings like heck if you happen to get any in your eyes/nose, so beware!
