I have combination skin with dry cheeks and an oily T-zone, and when I first started college, I was getting enormous red pimples on my forehead. I don't really know if it was the new environment or the unlimited dining hall food or something out-of-place about my skincare routine, but when I used this soap, my skin cleared up immediately and I haven't gotten the terrible acne that I used to have. My pores are still a bit large, but my skin has ended up very clean and bright and clear.
Here's what I do: I first wet my face with warm water and then rub the soap all over my face. Then I massage the area with my hands for a minute or two and rinse with cold water to close my pores. The soap can dry on your skin, so you have to use a lot of water. Also, don't get it in your eye, because it really hurts. You should probably use a makeup remover beforehand for eye and other makeup, although this soap is very cleansing.
There are six little soaps in the box that it came with and I paid thirty dollars (including shipping), so that comes out to five dollars a bar, but the soaps last for a very long time. The eggwhites help both to moisturize and exfoliate the face, and the scent of the soap is a very pleasant fresh (not perfumey) rose.
I would highly recommend this product for others with combination skin, although the moisturizing properties of this soap would benefit the dry-skinned.
I received a bar of this face soap, and I must say that I am hooked on it ! Apparently, this beauty product is a big hit in Korea, and is featured very heavily in many magazines.
This face soap is primarily made up from egg-white, which is known for its exfoliating and pore-minimizing properties. It lathers very well upon contact with water, creating a creamy rich lather.
I use this as a substitute as a cleanser day and night, and I must say it made my skin finer, and does not dry out the skin at all. According to the instructions, you can also double it up as a pore-cleansing mask by leaving it onto your skin for 3 mins before rinsing off.
I gave it only 4 lippie, because this soap can make my skin look raw (red), if I leave it on for too long. All in all, amazing product at an affordable price (you can purchase this in e-bay at approx USD5/bar)
Unique soap, foams up really well, cleans fairly well, and leaves skin feeling tight. Also pretty cheap.
I received a bar of this stuff from a friend who got a set free with a purchase she made. A quick google search showed that it's about 5.00 USD for one bar. I had it sitting around for awhile but didn't get around to trying it now and I have to say, I wish I tried it earlier. My skin is really dry but this felt really nice on my skin. It's like getting an eggwhite facial in a soap. I remember my mom doing those the old fashioned way with a thin cloth and egg whites and wondering why they were brushing their faces with egg whites like they were pastry lol but now I know why. Anyhoo, the company is Victoria Scandanavian Soap AB and seem to have a lot of cute soaps on their page. The name of the soap is Lanolin Eggwhite Soap or Lanolin-Ägg-Tvål. The smell is nice and it is recommended for dry or sensitive skin and you should leave it on for about 5 minutes as it lathers and then rinse off for the maximum benefit. I really like it. Glad my friend was generous enough to give one to me!
I've loved this soap ever since I bought it on a whim from eBubbles. It clears up mild breakouts without being drying and always leaves my skin looking great. Combined with the great price and adorable packaging, it's an amazing product!
Who would have guessed I would find my HG cleanser in an antique store? I stumbled upon this gem when browsing through the antique store I frequent. I was immediately drawn to the super cute old school box they came in. Being an esthetician I'm insanely picky about my skin care products and am always skeptical about product claims.
Hailing from Sweden, this soap contains lanolin, glycerine, egg white powder, and rose water. It smells like roses but is fresh instead of heavy. The instructions recommend you do an initial cleansing then follow up by cleansing a second time but leaving the lather on your face for 5 minutes. I've done egg white facials in the past and doing the 5 minute lather mask produces the same result. I never say this about about most products, but I swear it did give me a nice glow. Love it!
So far I've had no problems on my normal/combo slightly sensitive skin. No breakouts since I began using it 4 months ago. Doesn't leave my skin feeling squeaky and stripped afterward and produces a creamy lather. My skin has transitioned from late summer, the 2 weeks of fall we get in NC, and to winter with no problems or dryness. The real test will come this summer when it gets unbearably humid.
One bars lasts you about a month and I got a 6 pack for $18. Can be found on Amazon and any number of online soap retailers. Be sure to double check any health food stores. The value of this stuff is incredible. No animal testing, good scent, great results and cute box I use to store my makeup in. I highly recommend giving it a shot. Will buy again forever.
