Description

Soothing liquorice & charcoal cleansing bar.
Ground up charcoal is very good for your skin, though; it helps to absorb excess sebum from the skin's surface and acts as an exfoliator. Hence Lush put it into a complexion bar with skin softening liquorice root plus rosewood and sandalwood essential oils, both rumoured to help cells regenerate and to slow the arrival of wrinkles.
The liquorice root decoction is antibacterial, but also moisturises the skin.

Directions

Moisten the cleansing bar with water and rub in your hands to create a lather. Apply to your face in a gentle, circular motion, rinse thoroughly, pat dry. For best results follow with the LUSH toner and moisturizer that best suit your skin type.

Ingredients

Liquorice Root Decoction (Glycyrrhiza glabra), Propylene Glycol, Rapeseed Oil; Sunflower Oil; Coconut Oil (Brassica napus; Helianthus annuus; Cocos nucifera), Water (Aqua), Perfume, Sodium Stearate, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Powdered Charcoal, Sandalwood Oil (Santalum album), Rosewood Oil (Aniba rosaeodora), Sodium Chloride, *Geraniol, *Linalool, Silver Edible Lustre
* Occurs naturally in Essential Oils

Strongest points
The items exfoliating properties
Removes excess oils
Kind to the environment and suitable for vegans
Weakest points
very drying to skin (can remove too many oils)
You have the occasional sharp pierce of charcoal which can scratch and hurt your sensitive skin.
Summary
a very nice exfoliating facial soap which should be used in addition to a good moisturizer for the most effective use.

A very odd and unappealing looking face cleanser but it is gentler than you think and smells a lot better than you might imagine as it has sandalwood and licorice root in it. You do have to put it on a soap dish as it is a bit messy but lats a good long time.

Slightly exfoliating, felt fresh and smelt lovely
Weakest points
Price and the fact it made everything look black/grey.
Summary
I wanted something natural to try and came across this product, it smells lovely and worked a treat but I had black marks on my top and bathroom from it.
Made everything look dirty. It was slightly exfoliating and my skin looked fresh and new.

Cleanses and scrubs
Easy to use
Weakest points
Messy
Summary
A very effective cleasner for oily skin, it remove excess oil and has a fine scrubbliness to it meaning that it removes dead skin cells and cleanses pores.

It's got charcoal in it though so is very black, and messy and will makes a mess of your skin and soap dish.
