This product is a really good exfoliator, the elements of charcoal powder is what makes it so good as an exfoliant and a scrub. When you run it under the tap it does go liquidy and it makes it smooth and easy to apply to the face, and the charcoal lumps that come out are lovely for really working into the face, and scrubbing out clogged pores, and the fact it is a soap makes it much more straightforward when applying on to the face than e.g herbalism or Dark Angels. It is Definitely, Definitely meant for oily skin, which brings me on to my next point, It is SUCH a harsh exfoliant, I don't know what it is about it, but every time I use it, my face just stings and burns, So for anybody out there with sensitive skin like me, this is NOT for you.. It can be used on the body as well, which is quite a nice factor, but the charcoal dries the face so much, and as there is no moisturizing elements to it, there is nothing to balance out the drying factor! It makes the skin feel kind of soft, but as it stings my skin so much I don't really concentrate on how smooth it feels. It's only meant for the people with real excess oil on their faces i'm afraid! Go check it out at their website, it's one of those where you get to the store, and they measure out how much you want to spend, which is handy if you just want a small amount! But lush is really good for samples, so if you're not sure whether this product is for you, just try it anyway..
(Mine has nearly run out, so this is the remains of it!)
