I've never been one for bar soaps to use on the face, but this one changed my mind. The Black Clay soap I found too strong for my normal to dry and sensitive prone skin, and the Rose Clay while gentle and hydrating, was too basic for my skincare needs. The Pumpkin (or Luz before the name change) cleanses my skin very well and really helps at brightening my skin. It does give me a squeaky clean feel, but it doesn't dry my skin out the way the Black Clay did, nor does it leave behind a slight film the way the Rose Clay did. It lathers very quickly and with very little product, smells herbaceous (rosemary & tomato paste), works great as a quick morning cleanse but also to double cleanse with. My favorite way to use this is after a cleansing oil to help remove makeup if I don't feel like using a cloth. This removes every trace of it and the oil left behind. The size of the soap is small, but don't let that fool you because it lasts for ages! I highly recommend giving this a try.
