Head-to-Toe Glow With Clear and Even Tone Body Cleansing Bar
Look, we don't mean to brag, but when it comes to skincare products that deliver serious, science-based results, we've got a pretty good track record. Our products are designed with melanin-rich skin in mind and formulated to deal with the skincare complaints that concern you most.
We can talk your ear off about our wide range of serums and treatments, which address visible signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles to hyperpigmentation and breakouts — and we will!
But this article is an ode to one of our all-time faves and a serious all-around superstar in our body care lineup.
It's our Clear and Even Tone Body Cleansing Bar! And if you're wondering why you need to get this puppy into your shopping cart ASAP, well. We've got more than a few compelling reasons you might want to consider!
What Is the Clear and Even Tone Body Cleansing Bar?
Our Clear and Even Tone Body Cleansing Bar is a 2020 Allure Best of Beauty Award Winner, so you know it works! It delivers a powerful blend of ingredients designed to do so many things that it might take your shower routine from a complicated mess of products to a simple, time-saving regimen.
Aestheticians developed it with an environment and human-safe formulation — so it doesn't have parabens or sulfates.
This is important because, for instance, parabens have widely been used as artificial preservatives in many cosmetics and skincare products going as far back as the 1920s! Parabens are effective at preventing grossness like bacteria and mold from proliferating your skincare products over time, so on the one hand — that's great.
On the other hand, there's some evidence that parabens might negatively affect your hormones, potentially leading to issues with fertility and reproductive organ health in general. Parabens may also increase your risk of certain health conditions down the line.
Likewise, sulfates are a common chemical in many skincare and beauty products. It's produced from petroleum and some plant sources to get products to lather. Much like parabens, there are a lot of concerns about sulfates potentially harming your health, ranging from skin irritation to potentially cancer-causing effects. Sulfates can also harm the environment and are often tested on animals.
You can rest assured that our Clear and Even Tone Body Cleansing Bar is not only free of these potentially harmful chemicals — it's also cruelty-free, so you don't have to worry that this cleanser is causing harm to any furry friends.
Now that you know some of its high points, we'll be straight with you and tell you what it is, although it's mostly in the name. It's a cleansing bar, but it isn't your mother's bar of dollar store soap. Let's talk about why.
How Does the Clear and Even Tone Body Cleansing Bar Work?
This cleansing bar is made with the perfect blend of ingredients to deliver smooth, even-looking skin from head to toe. It has Charcoal, which you may be familiar with as something occasionally used as a dietary supplement to “detoxify” your system.
We can't speak to what it does as a dietary supplement, but we can talk about all the ways Charcoal knocks it out of the park regarding skincare!
Charcoal is thought to remove impurities from your skin and absorb any breakout-causing toxins that may be lurking in your pores, ready to rise to the surface as a pesky blackhead or whitehead. It can also help absorb excess sebum or natural oils, which makes it perfect if you have oily skin — or, again, if you struggle with breakouts, which makes it an ideal addition to the ultimate breakout-fighting skincare routine.
Similarly, Sulfur is a natural, gentle blemish-fighter that works alongside Charcoal to absorb any excess oil that may be congesting your pores and contributing to breakouts. Sulfur also has cleansing properties, which makes it a favorite for addressing stubborn breakouts and blemishes.
Another key ingredient in our Clear and Even Tone Body Cleansing Bar is Kojic Acid. Kojic Acid is an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA). AHAs are acids commonly used in skincare for their ability to loosen the top layer of old, dull skin cells by breaking down the bonds that hold your skin cells together.
This process is called chemical exfoliation, and it's the key to vibrant, youthful-looking skin! Because not only does it get rid of old skin cells, but it also supports proper skin cell turnover. As you get older, the rate at which your skin cells renew themselves declines — it's one of the many reasons you may have to work a little harder for your glow as you leave your teen years behind. So adding some chemical exfoliation into your daily routine may help you improve the look of aging skin!
Our bar is also enriched with plant oils to leave your skin feeling clean without stripping it of its moisture. With all of these ingredients combined, you'll never reach for another body cleanser!
It's a super effective, nourishing way to start or finish your day and the perfect foundation for the rest of your skincare regimen. Whether you're looking for a little self-care moment while you shower or you have skincare concerns you want to address, our Clear and Even Tone Body Cleansing Bar is for you.
If you're wondering what skincare conditions this cleansing bar can help address, we've got the answers you need.
Who Can Benefit From the Clear and Even Tone Body Cleansing Bar?
This Cleansing Bar is, first and foremost, a balanced, effective, yet gentle cleanser that is good for any skin type. If your skin is pretty much perfect, we'll take a second to say congratulations — but also, our cleansing bar is good for you, too, because it can help your skin stay as flawless as you are. But there are some specific concerns that this cleanser is well-prepared to address.
If you struggle with hyperpigmentation, you probably already know that exfoliation needs to be part of your daily routine. You may already use an AHA or BHA solution on your face if you have dark spots, but the same applies to hyperpigmentation on any part of your body.
The chemical exfoliation provided by Kojic Acid in this cleansing bar is perfect for hyperpigmentation. With consistent use, it makes the perfect partner for the rest of your dark spot-focused skincare routine.
Fine Lines & Wrinkles
This cleansing bar can not only help restore a youthful-looking glow to your skin with its ability to work as a chemical exfoliant, but it also leaves your skin fully hydrated because it's formulated with multiple plant oils like Safflower Seed Oil and Eucalyptus Leaf Oil.
While other cleansers can leave your skin feeling stripped and raw and therefore more prone to developing fine lines and wrinkles, this one will leave you feeling soft, smooth and nourished.
Charcoal, Sulfur and Salicylic Acid are all ingredients you want in your lineup if you're serious about tackling breakouts! While a full body mask may not be in the cards, masking is many people's go-to's when their face breaks out, using this cleanser that helps to fight off both the causes and symptoms of breakouts every day can work wonders when it comes to clearing up your skin.
And the same formula that makes our Clear and Even Tone Body Cleansing Bar perfect for hyperpigmentation also makes it great for improving the look of post-breakout marks, which are a type of hyperpigmentation that results after damage to the skin.
If the only thing standing between you and the skin of your dreams is a bumpy, unpleasant texture to your skin like Keratosis Pilaris, don't worry. This cleansing bar can help.
Chemical exfoliation is precisely what you need to help resurface your skin, sloughing away that rough, frustrating texture and leaving behind smooth, baby-soft skin.
The Charcoal and Sulfur also help to strip away dead skin cells, which may have accumulated on the surface of your skin and created the texture you're trying to get rid of. While there are other products you can look to help restore your skin, it starts here, with your daily shower!
How Should I Use the Clear and Even Tone Body Cleansing Bar?
It doesn't seem that complicated, does it? But there's one additional bonus to this cleansing bar that we haven't mentioned yet.
In addition to providing chemical exfoliation, you can also use our Cleansing Bar to double down on its amazing benefits and get some physical exfoliation into the mix by using our Clear and Even Tone Body Cleansing Bar & Exfoliating Pouch.
Our Cleansing Bar works just like you'd imagine. Get it wet, rub it between your hands and cover yourself in all that glorious lather! If you're using the Exfoliating Pouch, you'll do the same thing, but with the Cleansing Bar tucked inside the pouch.
The lather will seep through the porous pouch, and you'll use that luxurious, lathery packet to rub all over your body. It's a spa experience in a convenient, hand-held package.
The pouch is made from material that's gentle enough not to irritate your skin but tough enough to help buff away any dullness that's getting you down. This additional exfoliation can boost the effects of our Cleansing Bar's ingredients and be particularly helpful if you're struggling with breakouts or skin texture issues.
If you opt to use our Cleansing Bar with the sponge instead, simply wet the bar and sponge and massage into your skin to work up a lather. After use, allow your sponge to air dry. This method offers gentler exfoliation while still thoroughly cleansing your skin!
Our Exfoliating Pouch is environmentally friendly, too, because it's reusable. And it's easy to care for! You can wash your pouch in your washing machine when you do your laundry. We recommend throwing it in with your towels and letting it air dry afterward rather than putting it in the dryer.
Can You Use the Clear and Even Tone Body Cleansing Bar On Your Face?
Look, we get it — our Clear and Even Tone Body Cleansing Bar is so appealing, you're wondering if you can use it as part of your facial skincare routine too.
The skin on your body is much more durable and resilient than your face's comparatively fragile and sensitive skin, so the concentration of ingredients in this bar may not be well-suited to your facial skin.
But never fear! Our Even Tone Gentle Gel Cleanser is here to save the day. It uses some of the same ingredients as our Body Cleansing Bar, like Kojic Acid, to help gently exfoliate your skin and to assist in promoting an even-looking skin tone. It also uses hydration-boosting Niacinamide to help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, texture and even redness.
Azelaic Acid complements Kojic Acid with its ability to brighten and even the look of your complexion, while Black Tea swoops in with the save at the end, providing plant-based antioxidants to help soothe the look of irritated skin and neutralize free radical damage, which, left unchecked, can result in visible signs of aging and dark spots.
While this facial cleanser packs a serious punch, it's gentle enough to use on any skin type. So if you want your facial skin to see the results that our Body Cleansing Bar offers to the skin on your body without any risk, we've got your back.
Cleansing is a key part of everyone's shower routine— we hope!
And because it's such a standard part of everyone's day, it's easy to go through it without thought. But if your cleanser is just a quick pick from the drugstore or supermarket, you're missing out on a super easy opportunity to kick your skincare regimen up a notch without adding any time to your day.
With our Clear and Even Tone Body Cleansing Bar, you're getting a cleanser that doubles as an effective physical and chemical exfoliant and is also packed with powerful ingredients that improve the look of skin tone, smooth skin texture and give you a head-to-toe glow.
