This duo cleanser was unique. You spread the bottled "oil" on (which is not all that oily-feeling, btw) and massage it into your face. Then without wiping or rinsing your face 1st, you lather up your hands w/ warm water & the black soap bar (charcoal, I assume) and massage the soap onto your skin, & finish by rinsing thoroughly. My skin feels very clean afterward without feeling too tight or squeaky or dried out. GREAT cleanser for my combination skin!
My favorite product so far
I love this combo and how well it cleans my face. I've been with Birchbox nearly a year and this is so far my favorite item.
Really into the charcoal products, this felt great, only downside is the 2-step process
This is such a perfect balancing cleanser. I use it every day. Good for all skin types.
Not for oily skin
Although it feels very good it don't work for me. A bit in the pricey side for the amount. The packaging is very nice and the look is elegant. I'm a first time user and with my oily skin, it don't work well. I would recommend this to anyone with dry skin as it cleans and moisturizes at the same time it seems. I didn't feel my skin clean at all.
