Most Helpful Positive Review A New Way to a Clean Face
I had never used a beauty bar before. The Urban Skin Rx Clear Skin Cleansing Bar did more than expected. Using the included sponge I wet it and then rubbed it over the solid Cleansing Bar. It immediately foamed and formed suds. I then wiped this all over my face. When I rinsed my face was squeaky clean, literally. I also used it as a mask by leaving the suds on my face for 3 minutes. Amazingly, it removed all my rough skin, totally exfoliated without any harsh grains, ground pits, sand or any other scratchy, harmful methods. The scent of spruce in the product made me think of being outdoors in the forest. The scent did linger until I put on my moisturizer. This all-in-one Cleansing Bar from Urban Skin Rx is a true advancement for the effective and gentle cleaning and exfoliating of my skin. Definitely recommend!
Most Helpful Critical Review Really drying and broke me out.
I'll start off by stating that I really likes the scent of this product. It smelled similar to Vick's Vaporub. I thought the packaging was interesting. I've never had a face wash in a tub before. I'm trying to be more mindful about how much waste I create. So adding a tub to a product that could have just come as a bar of soap seems wasteful. I have a soap bar holder and travel holder so I don't see myself needing the tub. I think I would have preferred it as a regular bar of soap.
This seemed like a really promising product. With continued use I think it can work for some of you.
Its important to remember that when trying a new skincare product you should always allow it some time to fully work for your skin. With this product my skin got extra dry when i first started using it. Which is a weird concept to me since I have super oily skin. It gave me lots of little bumps on my forehead. It felt as if it had tried pulling out all the gunk in my pores but stopped midway and left it right in the surface is my skin. I don't know if the bumps were what it had begun extracting it dry patches. It was hard to tell because they were so small and not very visible. Using a chemical exfoliator to try to get rid of them was a huge mistake. I had to use an exfoliating brush in my face to get rid of then and slathered on a ton of moisturizer.
I have continued to break out on my chin area since I started using this product. I know it's due to this product because nothing else has chance in my skincare. However I am aware that a purging phase might need to happen with some products before you see results.
Since we are in quarantine I will continue to use it but if my skin condition doesn't improve I will need to call it a fail for me.
Reviewed by 281 customers Cleared up the worst breakout ever
Trixie from INDIANA
I recently had the worst breakout, maybe of my entire life. I am pushing 30 and haven't broken out like this in at least 10 years. I got this face wash, as well as the luna mini 2, and my skin was almost 100% clear in like a week. I'm actually very impressed. I still have some scabbing and dark spots from the break outs, but the rest of my skin is glowing in a way I have never experienced before. The only drawbacks are that this smells kinda funky and is drying if you use it too much.
Skin feels so soft and clean.
Kel from Louisville, Ky
I use this product every day during my facial routine and I absolutely love what it does for my skin!
NOT FOR SENSITIVE SKIN!
Whatley41919 from Louisiana
I never write reviews and tend to purchase products based on the high ratings versus the low. I have oily skin with a history of acne but haven't had problems in many years. When I started breaking out I thought this would be a good purchase to help clear my skin quickly. I only used the product for about 3 days (morning and night). My skin DID feel clean but it didn't take long for the burning and pain to set in. It felt like a chemical burn and made my skin painful to the touch. Any products put onto my skin also burned when normally they didn't. Also, the texture of my cheeks is now so rough and scabby feeling. I do not recommend this product...at all...the ONLY good thing I can say (and the reason I gave it 2 stars) is it did seem to dry out a few large breakouts I had when I started using it. But past that. Awful.
Works so far
Tara from Fl
So I like the concept of the cleanser but 1) it smells pretty bad. 2) I don't like the sponge concept. Not sure how hygienic that is and I like to use my foreo to cleanse my skin. I have to use the sponge just to get the cleaner on my skin and then go in with my foreo with is just extra steps I don't want to have to do. However, all in all I like the cleanser. I feel like my skin is better so I'll deal with the other inconveniences.
I never leave reviews but this stuff is amazing!
gmferrari from Ofallon
In just the past week this has TOTALLY cleared my skin. I will be rebuying!
Nelson from Nv
I've been using this product for a while now. I've tried there other bars but this one works way better with my combo skin. Do recommend to use it once day though. my face clears up in no time. highly recommend!!
Works great but can be over stripping
Deanna from Michigan
I have normal/combo skin and this worked incredibly well for me. My forehead bumps, blackheads, and random pimples are completely gone. Its affordable and worked amazing for me. Results take a few days but it helped me quite a bit. I wouldn't recommend using more than once a day though, it drys out your skin if you use it to much. Just bought my second one.
I wouldn't buy this product for mild/ cystic acne
Gracie from Colorado
For reference I have combo/ oily skin w/ occasional and some cystic acne. I got this product after trying the even tone bar ( which I loved) in hopes of it helping to control my occasional cystic acne. It did almost the same as the even tone, BUT made me break out cystic-ly on my chin and between my eyebrows. I even waited for like 4 weeks to see if it would clear up but it did not and it was very painful. I won't be buying again.
Must Buy !
Rose from New York , NY
Switched from derma- e products as I believe my face gets tired of using the same products. I read good things about it and decided to give it a try. My face has completely changed. I barely get any acne and I noticed that my blemishes have gone away.
Worked for my skin!!!!
AshleyR from St. Louis,MO
I wanted to give this product some time to work before I wrote a review. I bought this product on 6/30. It made my skin feel really clean. As of today I have minimal break outs!!!! My skin is really oily. I'm going to combine this with the even skin tone bar.
Kiki from Savannah,GA
Help with oil control and drastically decrease acne breakouts
Literally the most amazing part of my skincare routine
Syd from San Diego, CA
I'm in love with this cleansing bar! I've only been using it for a couple of weeks but it's changed my life. It's my second cleansing step before I start on my serums & I just really feel like it gets into my skin & removes all my oils & impurities. I use it twice a day & it's a dream. So happy I found this product
very minimal difference
moona from houston
i was soo excited for this product but i've been using this for a few weeks and i haven't seen much of a difference. it definitely does make my skin feel clean but as for acne, it hasn't lessened it at all. the sponge it comes with i feel is too harsh for the skin, something more delicate for acne prone skin might work better. skin feels very dry and soaked out after washing which is sort of a bad sign for me as cleansers shouldn't strip your natural oils.
Loved it but allergic to it!!!
Puffy from Ulta Online
I purchased this in April from being used for a facial I got in March. Noticed my eyes getting puffy about a month or so later, and stopped using it in June for a few weeks and no issues. Used it Friday July 3rd and woke up 4th of July morning with puffy eyes again! I hate this too because I loved the one product versus multiple ones for each factor.
Love it !!
Karen from Los Angeles
Love this soap I got one for me and my boyfriend and it's made such a difference in our skin definitely recommend
Broke out even more
Norma 🤪 from Santa Maria
I had high hopes for this product, used it every day for a week and I didn't notice any difference , as a matter a fact it made it worst. I had small little bumps on my face that won't go away. Awful product, overhyped
Teen from Missouri
Committed usage recommended. True results within a couple of days
Yassss girl yass
Marissa from PA
This is my every day cleanser! My acne has improved and this really seems to be doing good for my skin type which is oily but can get super dry. This is perfect for people with sensitive skin like myself! This is my second time buying this product and will be buying again! The smell isn't the best! But I love this!!!!!
Don't use if you have sensitive skin
Kate from Georgia
So I would use this product morning and night... then I noticed I started getting a ton of little bumps all over my face. It was on my forehead, cheeks, etc. it was really starting to irritate me. You couldn't even pop these suckers because they were so small. I had such high hopes for this product since I read all of the reviews... so I tried using it only 1 time a day... the bumps were still awful. I hadn't really changed anything else in my skincare. I knew it had to be from this. So if you have sensitive skin, this can actually cause you to have milia type bumps. I am still trying to get rid of them. I wish this worked for me. Just a warning for anyone wanting to try it
My face looks so much better after 1 week.
Ms. Maxwell from Charlotte
It's been only a week and my skin looks so much better!
Before using the product, my face would breakout very easily because of my oily skin.
A lot of acne products that I have used in the past made my skin very oily or make my skin extremely dry after using the product.
This product have reduced my oily-ness and my skin doesn't feel dry at all after using.
I had whiteheads when I started using the product and they have disappeared after 2 days of using the product. I haven't had a new breakout since using the product either!
andrea:) from greenfield
This cleansing bar has literally saved my skin. In one use i saw the results. i saw how my skin was way brighter and seemed so much cleaner. i have oily skin and this cleansing bar is helping me control that. it doesn't dry out my face like other products. and it's also amazing for my sensitive skin, it doesn't turn red or anything.
I love this facial cleanser.
Keke from TX
This facial cleanser does not over dry your skin, it helps minimize your acne problems, and reduce less breakouts.
Lexi from Columbus Georgia
Love the fact that it comes with two face sponges. The formula is perfect for my Oil rig skin. Lol it was so great I had to buy a back up one and one for my sister to put her on game.
I just bought 2 more!
Lauraboogie from Tx
I love this product because it actually helped me clarify my skin! I'm super dry and it didn't seem to dry it out Of course I use it like once a week also. My husband uses it to get rid of hard black heads and it works for him he said this is the first time you buy something and it actually works:)
JayBird from West Plains Mo
I had a lot of acne scars and very dark circles and a uneven skin tone. URBAN RX CLEANSING BAR helped me so much! I dropped everything else in my skincare routine and this did not disappoint!!! I would recommend this to any and everyone!!!
