Bar soap that exfoliates and washes away grime and pore-clogging gunk. 

Charcoal? For my face? You bet. Natural charcoal is known to degunk pores. Infused with refreshing peppermint oil and exfoliating jojoba beads, this unique formula works to make skin smooth and 2.5x cleaner than a basic cleanser.

  • With Natural Charcoal, known for its ability to draw out and trap deep-down impurities

How to Use:

Wet hands with warm water and work bar into a white lather. Massage lather gently across face. Rinse thoroughly. Use up to twice daily. If dryness occurs, reduce usage.


For external use only. Avoid eye contact. If contact occurs, rinse thoroughly with water. Keep out of reach of children.

How it Works:

  • The natural charcoal powder draws out impurities
  • Scrubbing jojoba beads gently exfoliate for smooth skin
  • Natural peppermint oil leaves skin feeling tingly fresh

  • "Love love love this stuff!!! I recommend this to anyone who suffers acne. It will definitely help to clear the blemishes asap!! It's about 8 bucks which I don't think is too overly priced for this." in 178 reviews
  • "I was searching for a new gentle cleanser to try and there was a coupon on this bar for 2 dollars off making it 4 dollars and some change at walmart. I figured it wouldn't hurt to try it.. but i fell in love. i have pretty big pores and i have combination skin. This soap really does get down in my pores and clear out all of the dirt in my skin. It has a peppermint like feel to it, and it definitely doesn't feel good if it gets in your eyes. I love it though. I use it while I am in the shower because I feel like the heat opens my pores and really allows this to get in there and get all the dirt out, then I follow my normal routine. witch hazel and moisturizer.

  • "So before trying this cleansing bar, I had tried soooo many facial cleansers. My skin had started breaking out horrible when I started using the clarisonic. I couldn't get anything to calm the breakouts. I found this by accident while in Walmart. So I thought well I'll try a bar, thinking that maybe some chemical in the liquid cleansers was contributing to my breakouts. OMG my face is like a night and day difference! I hope Biore never discontinues this bar! Smells great too! Minty fresh. Doesn't over dry and removes make up great. Just be careful around eyes. " in 48 reviews

I don’t like bar soap, but this feels nice. Exfoliates very well and my face feels very clean after. The shape of the bar is actually very nice, and easy to hold. Sometimes I rub it right on my face to exfoliate and sometimes I lather it in my hands for a more gentle wash.

I Love this bar! It leaves your face soft and smooth and free from any breakouts 😉 So gentle on your face! And when you buy it it has a 50¢ coupon in the box! So afforadable also! It also lasts long!

I never had acne or blackheads but after I started working out I started to break out like crazy and couldn't find anything that helped. Then a week ago I bought this charcol bar and I'm in love my face is finally clearing up again. I saw results the first time I used it plus it leaves my face feeling refresh. The only thing I have to point out if you already have dry skin you need to moisturize after washing your face because it can feel a little dry.

I've used this product along with others, I'm not sure if it really works at the moment because I'm so busy and be forgetting to use my face products. I be in such a hurry, but I will continue to try and use this product more often.

The charcoal bar is amazing. All you have to do is get the bar wet and rub it all over your face. It leaves your face soft and clean! It's not a harsh scrub either. I would definitely buy it again.

I love this product so much my skin has never felt so clean, the only downside to this product is that it drys out your skin so if you have dry skin I don't recommend it.

I used this bossy bar for about a year. I loved it so much. I showed my mom this product and now she is a huge fan! I purchased mine at Walmart and I was very impressed. I would love to get this again and see some amazing results.

I have the Biore charcoal gel style cleanser. I was wondering if this bar works better, worse, or the same as the gel style cleanser? Is the bar too harsh for sensitive skin?

Does this exfoliate? And do you think this could take the place of a daily cleanser?
