Gentle for perioral dermatitis-prone, oily, sensitive skin
This tiny bar lasts for months and feels so soothing and calming to my skin. I do not feel any tingle from the mud, but very sensitive skin might. This is my absolute favorite cleanser for both a morning cleanse and at the end of a sweaty day on makeup/sunscreen laden skin. It is very gentle, though if you accidentally get some in your eyes, it will sting. Bar soap has a higher pH than most facial cleansers, but I do not find this soap damaging to my skin barrier at all. Even if I double cleanse with it to ensure I’ve thoroughly removed makeup/sunscreen, my skin feels supple, not stripped of moisture. This is a key step in keeping my acne away. The $3 Osmia Soap Saver is a wise investment: storing my soap on top of the soap saver (which is placed on top of a soap dish), allows this bar to stay dry and clean for months. Periodically wash the soap saver to keep everything clean, and the bar stays in great shape. I really love this product and cannot imagine using anything else!
