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 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.

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

Pretty awesome
Purchased

I heard many things about charcol's clarifying effect in beauty products & I will say this soap/brand leaves my skin squeaky clean. I just wish it was a larger bar of soap...in almost 1 week it's half the size although it lathers really well (I shower with it everyday) it also doesn't have much of a smell & was hoping for more bergamot. I think I might try the sea salt one too

Oh so clean!
Purchased

This soap left my skin soft and supple. It could be the bamboo and charcoal talking, but it did feel like the impurities from my skin were washed away. I followed with my favorite moisturizer and admired my skin.
