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.

Great find
Purchased

Really great soap. Takes a bit to lather upon first use but once it gets going it REALLY gets going. Smell is faint but pleasant. I wish I could bottle this into a fragrance. I'll be buying again. It makes my skin silky smooth and fresh and not dry one bit

Charcoal is great
Purchased

Charcoal is great for a really clean feeling. It's a little expensive but it does work great for cleansing your skin.

Decent
Purchased

This soap didn't do anything crazy for my skin. It's been a harsh winter so it's hard to judge this cuz mostly every soap for me this time of year won't moisturize enough. Scent is undetectable and lather is too much work. Just OK overall.

Leaves me squeaky clean
Purchased

Good purchase for a back soap if you struggle with combo/oily skin, I use this as my facial cleanser in the am and it does a pretty good job. It doesn't leave my skin feeling tight or dry, but feels like I got all the grime or leftover moisturizer/serum from night before.

Clean feeling but leaves black residue
Purchased

I really like this soap: it's lightly scented and my body feels clean after using it. I'm able to get a good lather and it washes off nicely.

The only issue is that my white shower soap dish has black soap residue, which is holding me back from buying more.
