Think bar soaps are an old school skincare item your grandma used? (She totally did). But–a big but!–Bar soaps are a very valuable addition to any proper skincare routine for all organic beauty types. Inexpensive, effective, and look pretty dang cool in the bath too.
We are all about the multi-step beauty regimen these days. And this includes cleansers.There are cleansing gels, milks, creams, and oils. Micellar water and a wide selection of toners. Even special cloths meant to get face and body super clean. But most of us have forgotten about the good ol’ bar soap. And that’s a shame, especially since it’s more environmentally-friendly than liquids in plastic or even glass.
Pared down beauty is what it’s all about right now and bar soaps fit right in. They are made of few ingredients and offer a straightforward cleanse. Feel they may be too strong or leave a film on skin? Not when they are made with the best natural ingredients.
Here’s a selection of bar soaps that nourish and cleanse he skin, and look good while doing it.
Best Bar Soaps for Good Looking Skin (that look good too!)
Kahina Giving Beauty Goat Milk & Honey Soap. One perk of bar soap? They are often suited to both face and body. A multi-use shower staple. For dry skin, try this argan oil-infused bar.
Soapwalla Activated Charcoal & Petitgrain Soap Bar. We’ve talked before about the benefits of activated charcoal on acne-prone skin. Use this guy to balance oil and clear pores.
Osmia Organics Rose Clay Facial Soap. Bar soap too harsh for sensitive skin? This chunk o’ soap is designed specifically to treat easily irritated complexions. Creamy and gentle, it cleans and nourishes.
Osmia Organics bar soaps. Talk about bathroom eye candy. Bar soaps don’t get much prettier than the whipped up beauties of Osmia Organics. Choose from the selection to treat every skin type. My fave for a sink-side perch? Has to be Milky Rose.
Pearl Plus Moisturizing Soap. Remember soap-on-a-rope? Yeah, this is like that only ultra-mod. Moisturizing with crushed pearl to add luminescence to skin. Looks like a hunk of marble in your shower.
Wary Meyers bar soaps. So gorgeous you may never want to use them. Yes, they are little works of art. But these bars are also free from nasties and cruelty-free. That Pink Champagne bar, though. Use or display, it’s up to you.
