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.

I have dealt with hormonal acne and hyperpigmentation since high school. I have tried so many products with no luck, but this was a godsend. I am able to use this sometimes twice a day without it drying out my skin. My skin is less oily, my dark spots are fading fast, and I haven't had a breakout in months. I've been telling everyone that will listen about this product! AMAZING!
It's just great

It's lasted me three months, my skin is better than ever and it's my new staple.
It's part of my life now lol

My dermatologist recommended Urban Skin RX for my cystic acne being a woman of color. She said it her go to for her skin routine (she's Middle Eastern) these products really help with melanated skin (I'm Black) and living in Colorado it's dry heat so my skin is oily. I love love love it

I've only been using the product for a few weeks but my skin is the clearest it's been in years. It does leave your skin a little dry so I'd recommend a moisturizer after.
Yes, Yes, and Yes!
Char from Pittsburgh
I feel like when most people give reviews on these types of products, they have skin conditions that should be treated by a dermatologist prior to trying these. The container clearly says what it does and it gave what it was suppose to give for me. I have very oily skin, I've only been using this product for a couple weeks and I already seen that my skin isn't as oily and it feels so great. I had a minor break out and it cleared it right up and yes I have sensitive skin and it worked fine. Dieting also plays a major part in your skin, you are what you eat! I definitely recommend this!

Great facial cleansing bar. It really helped improve my dark marks.
A cleanser like no other
Mimi from Atlanta, GA
I used this product once in 2020 and I loved the way it cleaned my face and handled my acne like it was no big deal. I eventually ran out of the "bar" during quarantine and was really disappointed I couldn't go out and buy another. It's been a full year since I last purchased the product and when I started using the "bar" again I realized how effective it is. It lathers nicely and a little bit of the cleanser goes a long way. A really long way. In the shower, I would let it sit on my face. It would tingle, but it was nothing painful. It literally eliminated any major and minor blemishes I had and gave me a smooth complexion. I sadly ran out of the product again and I have been using the salicylic acid cleanser from Cerave. It's only been a week since I changed cleansers and my blemishes are coming back again :/. I may be relying on this cleansing "bar" too much, but it works wonders for me. I'm considering returning the Cerave cleanser and buying another jar of the cleansing "bar".
The AHA polish. Typo for APA

I use the AHA polish.. so everyone doesn't get confused lol.. typo.. sorry guys.
Perfect in a cup

I love the fact that you can use it while it's still in the jar. I think the title of it is a tad misleading. So, for the people that haven't bought it yet. It's called a bar but it's inside of the container & it stays there as you use it. There's 2 sponges that come with it & you massage it with the water running inside of it at the same time to get a really good lather. Once you're done, you rinse the soap suds off from the jar, squeeze out the sponge and set it on top of the white container top. It is not your normal soap bar similar to Dove or Olay. The product is inside & stays there & you just rub the sponge on it each use, squeeze it out each use then reapply the white top to keep it from getting anything inside. I pair this with the Ulta APA polish ($20) & the Lancôme Génifique (I got the $105 bottle) & OH MY GAWD!! Never thought my skin could look so dang good. I'm 35, dark areas from the sun when I was younger have faded slightly & I am sure with continued use, they'll be completely faded within a few weeks. I am only week 1 now. But I've seen a complete difference. So I'm just glad my money didn't go to waste!
I would buy again

New holy grail

I cannot believe how good this is and how AFFORDABLE. I have used SO MUCH SKIN CARE. SO MUCH. And I got this on a whim!!!!! My mom was making a huge order and this was on display recently during some skin event so I was like let me throw this in my moms order, it's no big deal and cheap. WOW. Little did I know I was buying my new skin care staple. This has cleared my skin QUICKLY. Everyone mentions how clear my skin looks. I have noticed the difference!!! I see some reviews saying dry skin ppl to avoid this, but I disagree. I have majorly dry skin and this was amazing for me. I do also over moisturize and have a complete like 6 step skin care routine lol. But still!!! This product rocks, I've even cut down some products, I can get away with just sun screen and moisturizer in the morning! My skin just looks nicer!!! I have bad discoloration on my cheeks that I haven't seen lighten up, but I'm hopeful this could help it!!! My other skin that isn't discolored or scarred looks perfect. Wow. I really love this product. Just buy it and try it, you can affordable the gamble of trying it!
broke me out really bad :(
isabel from nj
i heard great reviews about this and i have quite acne prone skin, i started using this and immediately started breaking out worse than i had ever before. i thought it was just my skin purging so i kept using it for about a week and it just got worse. i switched back to my old face wash and it immediately started clearing up. its also super drying and the sponge it comes with can be really abrasive for sensitive skin
Ride or die product
Makenzie from New York
Love this cleansing bar! My skin is a combo of oily/acne prone but also has dry patches. This bar is the jack of all trades and has greatly improved not only my acne, but also overall appearance of my skin. Recommend to everyone.
Over 2 years of using
A from Desoto Tx
So in 2019 my skin was just breaking out so bad, i also had a lot of dark spot because of my acne. When I say this is a game changer I mean it's a game changer!! I've put so many people on even my bf, he loves it. It is a little drying but I tend to apply eye cream, moisturizer and sunscreen to hydrate my skin. But not only does it improve your acne it also evens out your complexion by toning it.
I love this product!
Ally from Thousand Oaks, CA
I love this product. I use the included sponge to work up a suds, then apply it to my face using circular motions. I leave it on for a few minutes, then rinse. It keeps my skin looking clear without drying. I would not recommend it for anyone with dry skin, but for my oily-prone skin, it's perfect. I was using another face cleanser, but this one works better and is less drying.
Denise from Arizona
Absolutely love these products. Makes my skin feel very cleansed , the glow is even better.
moo from california
dude i've been struggling with acne since middle school and have tried it all. this is the first face wash where i felt that was the main reason my face was clearing. i used to use it morning and night but now i'm just down to nighttime and my face has never been clearer. got it in a fff box and have been purchasing it from ulta since i ran out
Great cleanser, a lil drying
May from USA
Doing an acne scar removal boot camp, and decided to add this to my daily routine along with the Urban Rx starter kit. I use this in the morning and then use the starter kit in the evening to help keep my acne at bay while I lighten up my scars. It's a great cleanser but it does tend to dry out your skin. Always make sure you use a moisturizer whenever using this to put moisture back in.
love this so much
callie from pierre, SD
i use this morning and night and it's AMAZING. better than any other cleanser i've ever tried. usually my skin only likes characoal, green tea and tea tree based cleansers but this has worked so great!!! i rarely ever break out now and when i do they're very small blemishes. only con is that the sponges it comes with become less poreous and softer after about 30 days.
ashley from santa clarita
i'm not sure how people are loving this. i wanted to from the reviews my face was fine i should've left it alone did this for about 3 days it was all fine until i woke up with a really bad and i mean really bad break out, i haven't broken out this bad since high school. i immediately stopped using it and still am trying to heal my pimples from using this, it made me self conscious with this break out it gave me.
T from L A
I love this cleansing bar. I have struggled with acne prone skin my whole life and this has been the only thing that work. It is a multi action cleaner; unclogs pores; cleanses them; fades hyperpigmentation and ultimately keeps my skin breakout free. Even keeps hormonal acne at bay. The only cleanser I will use now on.

Cleared up bad outbreak of stress acne I had been dealing with for months. Pretty good at preventing acne as well but of course not perfect. I used the even tone bar next to help with the leftover scarring.
I love the clear skin
