Birchbox Breakdown

Whether you spend your days scaling mountains or hankered down in your cubicle, B.O. happens. Fight odor with this subtly scented black soap that’s part cleanser, part preventative measure. Bonus: Not only does the bar combat stink, it also reduces breakouts.

How it Works

Super absorbent, mineral-rich activated bamboo carbon is this soap’s power player. It keeps smelliness, grime, and acne in check. Acai berry contains antioxidants that protect against free radicals, while shea butter moisturizes.

How to Use

Lather up before hitting the gym or in preparation for the daily grind—and at the end of the day to rinse away the grit and grime.

Good

I didn't have that 'black soap' problem where it made my shower filthy.. I did like it, seems to be the regular for this quality.. but similar to other bar soaps, it didn't last that long at all.

An excellent produt, but....
Purchased

I love the feel and usage of this product. It ends any worry of feeling clean...the biggest problem, is it will melt in the shower...with our without a soap holder....it leaves black streaks (of course the carbon), but is annoying if someone stops by, and nee to use the loo.

All in all the product is great, and after teaching all day, it feels great to decootie my body :)

I liked the scent
Purchased

Good soap and good scent after showering with it. It did dry my skin during the colder months, but I think that had to do more with the dryness in the air during winter. still liked this soap very much.

others are better

other black soaps are better. i think there are even a few on the site. also, $10 for soap is way too high.

It's Soap

It was Ok, nothing crazy, I brought it with me on a trip which was nice to have a small sample size to carry on the road.

Had my skin dry

Tried this out twice and had my skin dry after both times. This is probably just my skin though. I did notice that the subtle scent remained on my quite long after my showers.

Solid, solid product

This is a quality bar that legitimately fights odor and has a subtle scent. This is a very solid product. Very good, not great though.

Not bad, but beware . ..

Decent smell, but beware of the black residue left on the shower floor! Clean regularly to make for an easier cleanup.

suprisingly good

I enjoyed using this product. My feet tend to sweat really bad so there are times when I get home and have a good amount of odor. This product cleans well without drying out my skin.

Great smell!

At first I was a bit skeptical given the look of the soap but after using it a few times it has a great smell, and leaves me feeling fresh. The only downside would be that when I do use it, it does leave a black soap reisdue at the bottom of the tub but that is nothing that can't be easily removed.
