Herbivore Botanicals Bamboo Charcoal Cleansing Bar Soap

Sometimes the key to a quality clean is found in the 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 and fresh.

Great for body acne
Purchased

I know, I know- Body acne? Yuck! Wish I didn't have it but thanks to some wacky hormones, I do. Thank goodness for this great bar soap though! I've been using it for a few days, and I can already notice a difference.

Where have you been all my life?
Purchased

This soap is incredible. I purchased this because I suffer from the dreaded bacne and have been trying to take back control of my back. I have used this soap the past 2 days and noticed an immediate difference. This soap dried up my acne without drying out my skin. This morning i woke up with less spots and less redness than with any other product I've tried. There is a light pleasant scent, i think from the bergamot. The only downside is the price for only 1 bar. It's equivalent to buying a box of about 6 bars at a drugstore. Perhaps consider a 2pack at a cheaper rate? This would be a staple in my shower if it were more affordable

Soft and Not Dry
Purchased

I have started using this soap in my daily facial regiment. I love how it doesn't dry out my skin like other bar soaps. I even use it in the shower. My friends have noticed a difference in the complexion and look of my face. It's brighter and I have less acne.

I would absolutely buy this soap again.

Average Charcoal Soap
Purchased

I was hoping to replace a quite expensive bar soap with this activated charcoal soap, but so far, not so good.

I've only been using this soap for a week, but I've already started having breakouts! I have combination skin with an oily T-zone, and by mid-afternoon, I'm shiny- something that didn't happen with my previous cleanser.

The smell also is a deterrent. It's very mildly scented, but what there is to smell, smells like old urine. It's only during application that you can smell anything.

Pro's to this soap: Great lather, great price and size, skin does feel clean after washing.

Con's: not effective (for me), smell
