Hello, my friends! I like to test new products and this time I want to review Ethique Charcoal, Kaolin & Oatmeal Bodywash Bar. This nice-looking “black soap” attracted my attention because it contains a mixture of Kaolin and Charcoal. Both components are very beneficial and natural. So I decided to try this thing and tell you about my experience.
Let's start with the ingredients. Like many other cleansing bars, it contains both chemical and natural components. As I said above it contains kaolin which is a very good skin cleanser and it contains charcoal which is also a useful natural component. If you want to find more details about the ingredients use Cosmily ingredients analyzer to get the report.
This product is reported to be hand-made. As for me, that’s not very important but some of you may find this important.
How to use: this product is very easy to use, nothing special. Just make your skin wet as you usually do it while using soap. Then lather up with the bar directly or apply it on your shower pouf. After you are done, wash the affected areas with warm water. That’s all.
This cleansing bar is designed for the body. But I think that it’s also suitable for the face. I tried it on my face and I didn’t feel anything suspicious. The manufacturer says it’s even suitable for people with sensitive skin. I think you can use it for both body and face. But be careful, it contains oatmeal which is a natural abrasive. It may damage your facial skin. That's why I don't recommend using it on your face directly.
Now let me tell you about my experience: I didn’t use it too often because charcoal and kaolin may damage the skin if you use them regularly. I used it about every 2 or 3 days. And I like how it works. My skin feels clean and it removes all unnecessary oils from it. But at the same time, it doesn’t make it dry. Will I purchase this bar once again? Yes, I will do it with great pleasure.
There is one thing you should keep in mind if you want to be as eco-friendly as possible: people report that if you purchase the bar from Amazon it comes with an extra plastic package. It’s not recyclable. If you want to get a 100% recyclable package I recommend ordering the product from the official website. It may be more expensive but you will not break your eco rules.
Will Ethique Charcoal, Kaolin & Oatmeal Bodywash Bar fit in the Ethique soap Case with an Ethique shampoo bar? No, it will not, this bar is too wide for the case. It will also not fit their sop bar holder.
