Birchbox Breakdown

This cult brand’s moisturizing bar might look like soap, but that’s where the similarities end. While regular soaps can deplete your skin of much-needed moisture, Erno Laszlo’s bar works with—not against—your skin’s natural defense barriers. It’s designed to replenish dry complexions and balance your skin’s pH levels. If that’s not enough to convince you, know this: Laszlo’s past and present list includes icons like Audrey Hepburn and Madonna.

How to Use

Performing the proper ritual is key to maximizing the benefits of this cleansing bar. Fill a basin half way with comfortably warm water. Holding the bar, dip it into the basin and then rub all over your face. Next, lather the soap and massage your face and neck. Finally, rinse your face using the Laszlo Splashing Technique—splash your face 20 times using the water from your basin, followed by 10 more splashes of running water. This will help clear out toxins and flush away dead skin cells.

Most amazing bar cleanser

To anyone who hasn't ever tried Laszlo's soaps, TRY THEM!!! It is the most amazing stuff out there. I have dry skin and I use this cleanser every day and it performs miracles. It leaves your skin soft, doesn't dry it out, feels great, and clears your skin pretty quick. Of course you still need to have a skin regimen with a toner, exfoliator, moisturizer, etc. but it is so worth replacing your existing cleanser. The technique with the water splashing makes it so refreshing and their techniques really work.

Wonderful classic and classy!

I just love this old Hollywood classic bar, though I don't follow the splashing routine. It is good for any skin type.

This soap seems to make my troubled skin happy. I love that it's natural and doesn't contain any harsh ingredients. It actually does get all my makeup off and doesn't leave my skin too dry and tight.

Best. Beauty. Bar.

I love this soap. It cleared up my skin issues, is relaxing to use and one of my favorite aspects of my routine, and it travels without problem through TSA.
