Herbivore Botanicals

Birchbox Breakdown

Sometimes the key to a quality clean is found in most unlikely ingredients. This ebony bar of soap comes infused with bamboo charcoal, which happens to work as a gentle, natural cleanser, purging skin of impurities and toxins. It lathers up a smoky gray, but don’t worry: You’ll rinse off clean and crisp as a fresh, green shoot.

How it Works

The crucial ingredient in this detoxifying bar is bamboo charcoal, which removes imperfections and cleans pores more gently and effectively than other charcoal additives. A blend of essential oils helps clarify facial impurities, while bergamot and lavender leave skin smelling garden fresh.

How to Use

Work the soap into a lather, then rub the bar over your face or body. The purifying power of bamboo means it can also serve as a clarifying facial soap.

Saponified oils of Olive, Coconut, Sustainable Palm, Activated Bamboo Charcoal, essential oil blend including Tea Tree and Bergamot.

Excellent clean!

This is the new shower staple, it lathers up nicely to really deep clean your face or body. It honestly does purge the skin of imperities and oil. The best soap I've ever used, the scent is great.

Loved this soap!
Purchased

I have used a similar product as a sample, and didn't want to purchase it because it was so expensive. However, this soap worked just as wonderfully and is a MUCH better price!!

So far so good

I haven't used enough of the soap to be able to have a real opinion on it, however it does have a nice smell and makes my skin feel super soft .
I feel really clean - and it does seem that it is taking a way any impurities.

Fantastic

I love this soap, I think it is a really good value.
The soap smells great and leaves the skin feeling clean, and hydrated. This soap DOES NOT leave an odd feeling film or waxy feel like some soaps do. Overall a great product and I would buy this again, I would also be interested in trying the other scent of soap that this company offers.

A solid soap
Purchased

It's an ok bar for body. It's a good bar for face. The charcoal really does work nicely as a clarifier, and the bar itself it more moisturizing than your average bar soap. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the slick texture after washing. It takes some dedication to get it all off. Smells good, brightens and evens skin well, but not good for a quick shower.
