Very good, long lasting, simple and wonderful. I have acne prone skin and this bar has really helped with breakouts.
My face is a combination of dry and oily. My nose has been peeling for months, with no indication as to why. I was using a more aggressive physical/chemical exfoliator for years but couldn't get my skin to stay consistently smooth without causing areas to get raw. I use this cleanser with the luna sponge. It took a few weeks for my skin to get used to this new regimen, but it's so great now. I no longer peel, and my face doesn't get greasy at the end of the day. I just got the serum from no-tox and I love it!
Oh wow, I am amazed by this soap. I've had a milia under my eye for about a year, and it got larger in recent months. I figured I was going to have to get it removed by a dermatologist. I had no expectation that this soap would cure the milia. After one month of using No Tox Life's charcoal soap daily, I noticed that the milia seemed dry and flattened. I was easily able to scrape it off with my fingernail. YAYYYY! I've used a lot of products in the past year and this is the only one that clearly made a difference in the milia. (I've also been using a BHA toner every other day for the past 3 months so that may have helped. Using it that close to my eye made my eye water, though, so I would recommend trying the soap by itself first.)
I've tried this product for a few weeks, and I found that I ultimately wasn't a fan of it. I don't think it worked for my skin type (mostly oily but can get oily/combination)...
I've used it several ways to see if it would work. First, I lathered the bar in my hands and used the product that rubbed off onto my face. When I did that, though, I noticed that my face became extremely dull & almost gray in color the next morning. I have hyper-pigmentation on my cheeks, so this was a definite change. Also, I've noticed that my makeup doesn't apply the same the next morning after using it like this.
Then, I tried rubbing the bar quickly onto my T-zone (nose, forehead & chin) to see if that would help, thinking that I could just specifically rub the product on the areas where I see my pores the biggest and where I see the most blackheads. However, when I did that, I noticed more acne on my forehead and nose area the next morning.
I'm so glad that this product has worked for a lot of people, but it just didn't work for me. I'm glad I tried it, though, and I don't regret buying it because I've been curious about this product for a while.
I bought this product for my husband as a gift because he likes charcoal soap. He loves this one so now we will be purchasing on a regular basis.
