This facial cleanser works great for my skin and has cleared some of it up (I have the recommended oily skin). It also has a calming smell that isn’t too strong. This is my second time buying it (I bought it the first time in store) and I can confirm that it is worth the money. It lasted me for a over a year, and I wash my face at least twice a day. Would 100% recommend to anyone who has oily skin like me.
I am so happy I was told about this bar by Genevieve (I think that's how you spell her name (sorry!) She is one of the co-owners of Eco Collective). I have always been nervous about switching up my skincare routine because my skin is my biggest point of low self-esteem if it doesn't look good and I'm acne prone at times, but I'm glad I made the switch! I feel like I almost have less breakouts, and when they do happen, they go away so much more quickly! I also started using jojoba oil from Eco Collective as well after I wash my face. I'm about to start using rose water as well just to see what happens! Thanks for all you guys do at Eco Collective!!!
I have mild acne and using this soap has really helped my skin look less oily and more healthy! I also think the scent is quite calming and very nice on your face. Would highly recommend!
I have pretty normal skin and don't suffer from too many breakouts (usually 1-3 pimples around the time of my cycle) but occasionally have hard knots under the skin that are super painful. Since using this facial soap (about 1.5 months at this point) I haven't noticed any negative effects on my skin. I'll happily continue to use this!
When will this be back in stock? I neeeeeeeed it. I am a fresh-faced goddess from using this soap. See that light in the distance? It's me. xo
In the few weeks Ive used this facial soap Ive seen a significant change in my small breakouts and specifically oil-deposits/blackheads.
The lather is so silky and it smells clean but not overly fragrant. This will last me a while even with washing my face 2x a day - I have combo skin type leaning toward dry, for context
This has been great for my husband's skin. He's had problem combination skin his whole life, and this has definitely reduced his breakouts and made his skin tone more even. Love that it is zero waste! We bought the soap stone to go with the soap bar, but the liquid soap dripped off the stone too easily and stained our white bath tub. Our solution (taken from another reviewer) was to take an old mint tin, strum rubber bands in a cross hatch across the lip of the tin, and then rest the soap bar on top of the rubber band. The tin offered a lip to catch any soap drippings, and prevented future stains.
When I wash my face and body with this, it leaves a moisture barrier that keeps my skin from getting dehydrated.
I've been using this face wash every day for a few weeks, and the block still appears as large as when it arrived. It is going to last me a long time,and was well worth the 10 bucks. I love the zero waste aspect. My skin feels smooth and looks clear. This has been working great during hormonal or stress-related breakouts.
Pros: Feels great on skin, lathers well, smell is very mild, and, as other reviews have mentioned, it really hasn't changed shape at all after nearly a month of use. So for overall quality and price, 5 stars hands down.
Cons: Something in this soap seems to be drying my face out. If you have a healthy moisturizing regiment already, then this will likely be no problem. I just noticed I have had to increase my method of moisturizing a lot after washing my face with this. Still recommend!
Love this face wash. It doesn’t irritate or dry out my skin.
I love this soap! It soaps up really easily, and you don't need much to get a thick lather. Doesn't dry out my skin
This is the face wash my dry skin was looking for. Such a gentle cleanse, pleasantly faint smell, and seems like it will last me a long time as the bar hasn't even changed shape after two weeks of using it. Super excited to keep using this!
A lot of facial soaps (bar and otherwise) can feel like they strip the skin of everything- dirt, bacteria, and oils. With this bar, I feel like it is cleansing without stripping away moisture that I need to replace right away with face lotion and the like. I can't speak to the UV protection, inflammation reduction, or redness reduction that the description holds, but so far have been very satisfied with my purchase- which is great, since this seems like it will last me a long time!
I have this one and then 2 other ones I bought elsewhere. This one is the best one yet. It's bigger and higher quality.... Doesn't feel like it's gonna unravel. I definitely recommend
Easiest way to save small pieces of soap! Quality is as pictured and described!
I've really liked this pouch so far. I didn't know what to do with my small soap pieces because they were too small to use but I also didn't want to waste them. This pouch dries hard if you keep the soap in it after each shower/bath, but softens when wet.
This sunscreen is amazing. It is moisturizing, so on my oily skin I use this without moisturizer underneath. I love the way this blurs my pores and really gives enough coverage for me. It goes on so nice, and blends well. Feels a little greasy initially but does soak into skin so that soon after applying I don't notice it being greasy at all. Everyone who wants zero waste moisturizing sunscreen should try this! I got the tan and works well for my olive skin in winter, though I may try dark for summer.
I was worried about trying this product due to a lot of other sunscreens in the past leaving a white film on my face and being difficult to apply. This sunscreen though, is everything I have been looking for in a product, applies easily and smoothly, and doesn’t leave any white or greasy film on my face! It actually also kind of acts like a BB cream and provides a little/light foundation like coverage on the face. I would highly recommend this product.
Well I really wish I would have known about this sunscreen months ago! It is incredible, I love that it is a solid stick that goes on smoothly. It smells like vacation/summer because of the coconut and jojoba oil and doesn't feel too greasy on my skin. I like that it's tinted a bit too, so I don't look like a ghost like with my other zinc based sunscreens. The packaging is my favorite, it is sturdy enough while still being compostable, I will never buy a different sunscreen unless they stop making this one.
I love the smell of this product, but I am disappointed with the performance. It’s definitely too waxy. Also this is on me, but it was a lot smaller than I had expected.
The lavender smell is amaaazing and not overpowering, but the bar is just way too waxy, which makes it difficult to apply. It's been about ten minutes since I applied it and it has soaked in now, but I still feel a bit of a waxy residue on my skin. I wonder if the ratio of beeswax to shea butter could be adjusted a bit by the brand.
This was smaller than I was expecting (I know the item size is 1 oz, but I didn't realize just how small that was) and heavy on the beeswax. I had been hoping to use it as a general face and body lotion bar, but it is much to waxy/sticky for my skin. It does smell very nice (I have the lavender scent) and is a pretty bar.
This lotion bar is fantastic. Perfectly fits in my bag without fuss, the container is reusable and theres no overuse!
The best part is the smell; I have the peppermint one and it's not overwhelmingly minty. Even my boyfriend likes the smell!
I love this lotion! I get it in bulk so it's super eco friendly and cost effective. It works for all purposes too, so no need for a million different products (yay for minimalism!). I have dry skin and this has replaced my thick body creams and leaves my skin feeling moisturized and smooth! I use this on my face too! I use a facial oil over top because I have especially dry skin, but for normal skin, this would probably work great!
Lightweight but creamy and moisturizing, and entirely non-greasy - feels great on my skin! It's unscented (you could easily add essential oils if preferred) and lasts a long time. Love that I now have a great plastic-free alternative added to my skincare products!
My dry skin LOVES this lotion. It absorbs into my skin beautifully, has no scent, and is a nice thick texture, which I think makes it last longer because I don't have to use as much product. Would recommend.
Its creamy, blends into skin easily, not greasy, no scent. EXACTLY what my dry skin has been craving.
Thank you for this great product!!
I absolutely love indulging in a luxurious lather of jojoba oil after a hot shower. I am so grateful Eco Collective offers a high quality product in eco-friendly packaging.
Jojoba oil is a carbon negative plant, meaning as the plant grow it actually removes carbon from our atmosphere!! So not only is the oil kind to your skin, it is also kind to the Earth. To quote Eco Collective, this product is truly "magic"!
I am hooked on this dry shampoo! I use about a teaspoon of this product in my oily shoulder length straight hair. I rub the powder into my scalp and voila! My hair is refreshed and ready to go like I just showered. Whether I am on a week long camping trip or just in-between showers this dry shampoo does the trick - AND the 3/4 cup product come in home compatible compostable packaging!
This dry shampoo is amazing! It lasts forever, it's inexpensive, and it works well! I have dirty blond hair so the white blends into my hair and you can't tell. If you have dark hair, you'll maybe see a white cast. I love this stuff and if I ever run out, I'll be buying more!
I think im sold! I'm trying this out for the first time and i feel like it really is holding down my oily scalp! im very impressed. I've tried mulitple spray dry shampoos and so far this has been working!
Ok, so the first time I used this dry shampoo I dumped waaaay too much on my scalp and it looked like I had been dusted with powdered sugar lol. But once I figured out the correct amount it works great! Let's me get away with not washing my hair an extra day to save water.
After the first use - I’ve been converted. It’s very light, absorbs the oils so well, and doesn’t leave my hair with an incredibly strong smell. I thought I’d miss the canned dry shampoo but I don’t. My hair feels so much more natural (not stiff, powdery, or sticky) with this product. My only Initial struggle with this new dry shampoo is application. I’d recommend using a makeup brush to dip into the powder and apply to your hair.
