The Healing Tree Bamboo Charcoal Soap Review + Giveaway 6/2 US

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
Ever since I hit puberty, my skin became sensitive to break-outs. I've tried a lot of facial cleansers (because of the great advertisements) but most of them caused me break-outs. Right now, I still have break-outs to some facial cleansers I try and I can't help trying out new ones specially those products with great advertisement.

When The Healing Tree sent me their Bamboo Charcoal Soap, I was excited to try it since there are only 4 ingredients in their Bamboo Charcoal Soap. Yes that's right! 4 familiar ingredients which are the following: Vegetable Oil, Water, Glycerin, and Bamboo Charcoal. None of those ingredients which I can't even pronounce.

Here is a short description of the Healing Tree Bamboo Charcoal Soap from The Healing Tree:

Bamboo Charcoal Soap is 4x more porous than wood charcoal, so it's high in absorbency and is able to draw dirt from deep inside your pores. Unlike normal soaps that only clean the surface of your skin, this soap can free up a lot of dirt that clogs problematic skin if you have acne, eczema, psoriasis, or dry/cracked skin. Bamboo charcoal is made by undergoing a firing process of 1,800 F to create a powder known as "Black Diamond" with high absorbency properties that will cleanse your skin by removing years of accumulated dead skin cells.

With your pores re-opened, your skin will begin to breathe again and naturally moisturize itself. There's no residue like other soaps, contains only four simple ingredients, and has a rich lather.

Bamboo Charcoal Soap Benefits:
  • Remove Dead Skin Cells
  • Unclogs Pores
  • Smoother Skin
  • Natural Ingredients
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Detoxifying
  • Fragrance Free
  • No Harmful Chemicals
  • No Added Colors
  • No Animal Testing

I opened the box and noticed that the scent is similar to a subtle charcoal scent. It's not bad but different from the other scented facial cleansers I've used. I also noticed and liked the pretty engraved logo on the soap.

The Healing Tree Bamboo Charcoal Soap also has a dark gray color, almost black for me and when I tried it on my face, it gave a light grayish-colored sud. It didn't really produce that much bubbles and sud. I like that it made my face feel clean. It didn't dry out my skin and didn't cause any break-outs as well. I also like that the charcoal-scent of the soap didn't stick to my skin. It is very easy to rinse off and I didn't feel any soap residue after rinsing it.

I liked the Bamboo Charcoal Soap from The Healing Tree. It's like going back to the basics and I like that it's all natural and free from chemicals and other ingredients of a regular cleanser/soap.
