When it comes to soap typically the bars are white and all they boast is ribbons of moisture. The Bamboo Charcoal Soap by the Healing Tree is not one of those soaps. Just as it's name says this soap is a mix of bamboo and charcoal. The soap is designed to be an all natural deep cleaning exfoliation tool and it works like a charm. When you use this soap it definitely exfoliates without the rough abrasion that typically comes with exfoliation.
With the exfoliation your skin is left ready for any of your moisturizing products stripped of all the days grime. That being said if you have naturally dry skin this might not be something you find pleasant. Also, when it comes to fragrances, the distinct charcoal odor isn't exactly a fru fru perfume, but it isn't unbearable either. Also, when you use it there isn't much of a lather, but you do end up with a bit of black residue at the bottom of the shower. I'd say those are my only criticisms, and for me the benefit far out weighs the minor drawbacks.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
