Most Helpful Positive Review Amazing Product! Improved My Skin Immediately!
This product is amazing! I saw instant an instant improvement in my skin from the very first use. After a few days, my skin dramatically improved. My light blemishes completely disappeared, and my slight redness has diminished to the point it's not even noticeable anymore.
I was super surprised by this product and the results because I'm usually skeptical about bar soap or bar facial products. But as I said, I saw amazing results after the first use!
It is a solid product that comes in a jar with two sponges. As you can see from my photo (I've only used one sponge so far), when you wet the sponge it becomes fluffy and soft. You swirl the sponge around in the product jar until a light foam appears, and then you use the sponge to apply it to your face. I let mine set for a few minutes to use the mask benefits, but you can rinse it off immediately if you wish. I found that letting it sit for a few minutes was more effective in treating my blemishes and redness. It also made me feel like it was cleaning deep into my pores by having more time to sit on my skin. It does give a slight tingly feeling, but not anything that was strong enough to cause irritation - just enough to let you know it's working. It's gentle enough for sensitive skin.
Eve after the first use, my skin felt deeply cleaned. I only had slight blemishes and redness, and after a few days of use they were completely cleared up and no longer noticeable. This is an amazing product that works great, smells great (a clean smell - not frangranced), and feels great. I will be buying more when I run low - and I would recommend it for any skin type - I think anyone using this product will immediately notice improvements! Highly recommend!
Most Helpful Critical Review Good Cleanser, Bad Function
Ok, so the cleanser itself is fine. I don't think it cleans my face any better or worse than any other cleanser that costs half the price, but I do feel the anti-aging ingredients and the extra benefits this cleanser offers (rejuvenating, hydrating and smoothing, even looking skin tone and a healthy complexion, and helps improve the appearance of dull skin, dark marks, fine lines and wrinkles) is probably worth the cost. My issues with this product have nothing to do with the way it works as a cleanser. I really like the way it lathers up quickly and amply. You get a LOT of lather with just a swipe or two of the 'bar'. It feels good on my skin during use and leaves my skin feeling clean and smooth. When I leave it on for the recommended three to five minutes as a mask, it's an even better clean, smooth feeling. The reusable sponge(s) are awesome. They are a perfect size, and easy to handle. They are supposed to be exfoliating, but they are not rough or abrasive at all. According to the urbanskinrx website, the sponges can be washed with laundry in a washing machine. I think I'll pass on doing that. I think it's odd to call this product a 'bar' since it's in a jar, but ok, whatever, no big deal. As much as I like the cleanser itself, I probably won't buy this product for the following reasons. It comes with two sponges, which is great and appreciated. But you can't leave the sponges in the jar after you use the cleanser, so you have to set one sponge aside. And to be honest, I have so much make up and stuff on my counters and in my drawers, I have no idea where I put the second sponge. So now I only have the one. You can buy additional or replacement sponges, which to me insinuates the sponges won't outlast the cleanser, but mine is holding up very well, and I think I will be able to use it maybe for the entirety of the cleanser, so that's good. I don't like having to put the sponge in the jar to get the cleanser onto the sponge. I keep thinking I may be transferring germs into the jar each time. I'd rather put the cleanser onto the sponge, not the sponge into the cleanser. The jar is slippery, and since I wash my face in the shower, I have to hold tight so I don't drop it. The screw-on lid is an annoyance because after I open it, I have to set the lid down somewhere while I wash my face and you know it's going to fall and I'm going to step on it. As previously stated, after you wash your face you cannot keep the sponge in the jar, even if you rinse it very well. The instructions recommend you sit the sponge on the lid, on top of the closed jar. I don't know why this bothers me so much, but it does. I don't want the wet sponge drying while laying flat on top of the jar. And it's just another opportunity for the sponge to disappear. So, overall, I like the cleanser and the benefits of using this product well enough, but it's the jar and the sponges that I have to babysit that make this product feel a bit 'gimmicky' . I just want to wash my face and get good results for my money. My complaints may sound whinny and/or petty, but these are my honest opinions and feelings. This product requires too much attention for me. But I would recommend it because the cleanser itself is good, and if you don't mind keeping track of the sponges and fumbling with the lid during use, this cleanser will make you happy.

JLawsin from Richmond, KY
It was recommended since my skin is oily and dry yet sensitive but this was very harsh on my skin. It burns and caused overly dry patches on my face and I only used it for 3 days.
Stop playing and buy this bar
Nuniy from Anne Arundel, MD
This product is everything. I have extra dry skin. With other face washes I have to IMMEDIATELY moisturize as it feels like my face is drying up to turn into a statue and feel stiff. With this, my face does not feel stiff after using. My face feels fresh and have a nice glow which other cleansers don't do for me. I am absolutely 100% in love with this product. And the fact that this company have a focus on skin of color means these folks know a thing or 2 about melanin.
CurlyCreole337 from Louisiana
I wasn't expecting to like this because I know how sensitive my skin is. But I love this. I love the concept of having to use the sponge, I love the lather and it makes my skin feel really clean
Love Love Love the ease of use
LadyGurdon from Lanham, MD
I love this product. Wasn't sure how this was a bar, but it's really cool how it's in the jar and comes with two sponges. I am enjoying using this product. It lathers nicely and thoroughly cleans my face. The sponge offers some scrubbing of the skin. I'm a fan and will use for years to come.
So far so great!
Jasmine from Sherman Oaks, CA
My other face soap was too drying. This cleans my face without stripping it of all its moisture.
Urban skin rx combination skin
Francescam from Wintersprings FL
I really like how this comes with a built in exfoliated which helped get rid of the flakiness on my forehead! But ... it made my cheeks and chin breakout! My cheeks and chin never breakout.. so I had to part ways with this product.
Seriously the best!
Abby from USA
I use this stuff daily and I haven't had any "maskne". It keeps my face super soft and it helps with the redness I've always had
I will definitely be buying again!
Deanna from casper Wyoming
I started using this product about a week ago and my skin has been so soft! I actually look forward to washing my face now. It smells super good too! I have definitely found my new favorite face wash!

Favorite Facial Wash
Kay from Charleston, SC
I love this facial wash. Before bed, I was my face with this product for one minute and follow up with witch hazel toner, then rose water spray for hydration. Then apply Urban RX Even Tone Serum and Vitamin E oil.
For morning application, I wash my face with this product, sprat with Rose water and apply Urban RX daily moisturizer with SPF.
Urban SkinRx combination
Miss Diva04 from Bay Area
This is my first time using Urban SkinRx and I did like how easy it was to use. The product did dry my skin out a little and made my face a little itchy. I will continue to use it for a few more weeks to see how it treats pimples. It isn't that bad if I use a moisturizer after I wash my face.
Shopper from United States
Still get pimples often and blackheads galore, but my face isn't as broken out as it would be if I weren't using a cleanser so that's something.
Made my acne worse
Kay Lynn from Florida
I had a little bit of acne before I used but once I started using it my acne flared up immediately. Usually my acne was huge pimples but using this they were huge sensitive pimples. The first ingredient in this is coconut oil which clogs pores. I was very disappointed.
Love it, love it!
Jai from Vallejo, CA
This facial product is amazing and definitely recommend to anyone who wants to try something new.
LOVE THE ENTIRE LINE OF PRODUCTS
Papaya from Charlotte, NC
Quick and easy find in the store ! Could not find it in other stores Ulta was the only place that had this readily available.
Had mixed feelings prior to purchase
Shay from Maryland
I love love this. I had mixed feelings purchasing this due to warning for sensitive skin but this actually didn't cause me red breakouts like other products. Just a little drying so follow up with a good moisturizer. But my skin looks visible smooth after.
I will be purchasing again
SLPA from Mesa, AZ
I was my face in the evening.
Do not buy if you have sensitive skin
cah44 from Scottsdale, AZ
I used this cleanser everyday AM and PM for about 2 weeks. I have very dry and pretty sensitive skin so I decided to try this out in hopes of it getting rid of all the texture on my face. Let me tell you after using this my cheeks would burn like heck and get all red and dried out. I thought it would just go away as I kept using it but no it did not. Not to mention this smells horrible. The sponge over exfoliates and I can totally tell a layer of my face is scraped away after using it. I do not recommend this product if you have overly dry or sensitive skin. I wish I could return this.
No not use if you have sensitive skin!
Alaina from Shepherdsville ky
I didn't have any effects the first couple of weeks but the past couple of days I realized my nose and forehead were really dry. I didn't think anything of it. Now the end of my nose is flaky and I have really really small bumps all over my face. Not visible to others but I can feel them. So I do not recommend if you have sensitive skin and dry skin!
Irene from TN
This product is exactly for the skin type shown:combo skin. That goes for combo-oily or combo-dry. Not all products are effective immediately especially when it comes to skin. Give this a week and a half to show results. Overall I love this for my skin.
Would def buy again
Tay from Philadelphia
I really love this product and have seen a difference in my skin within the first few days of using it. It has reduced my redness, helped my acne, and doesn't clog my pores. You really see a new glow, even the first time you use it. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it does make me feel a little dry after using it.
Perfect for my mature skin
Michelle from Philadelphia, PA
I use it daily as part of my night routine.
Bri from Massachusetts
It cleared up my skin really well for the first two weeks of using it but then as time went on my skin got used to it & I started to break out more than I did before buying this product
