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

Once my Candice and Kids charcoal bar was gone, I decided to give this one a chance. It really leaves a nice clean, however, it is excessively drying

This bar gets into the deepest pores of my face and cleans so amazingly. I have used regular cleaning bars but nothing cleans deeper than charcoal.

I use this weekly to exfoliate my skin. I wouldn’t use it as a daily cleanser but love it for keeping the blackheads and flaking skin to a minimum.

The night charcoal bar is not my favorite product of theirs but it provides a healthy glow to my skin. Its a little to harsh for my sensitive skin.

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?
