Herbivore Botanicals Bamboo Charcoal Bar Soap

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.

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.

Not so much …
Purchased

I purchased this based on the glowing reviews and was expecting something a little more. My first comment was that this was the smallest bar of soap I have received from Birchbox. Second was that the soap really didn't produce that much lather and the scent was less than noticeable. Not a bad product, I just won't be purchasing again.

I really liked it!
Purchased

But, as with a lot of bar soaps, it didn't last that long! I never felt like I had that "bar soap" feel when I rinsed it off. if it lasted me a week or two longer, this would be 5 stars.

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.

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.

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.

Really nice!

I'm enjoying this mild bar soap. It does feel very gentle and I am hopeful that is is working on my toxins as well!

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.
