  1. Mel

    It’s a nice face cleanser that doesn’t strip my skin or cause any breakouts.

  2. Marina

    I have super sensitive skin, sometimes I can only remove makeup with Argon oil. I have tried so many face bars claiming to be for sensitive skin from natural stores and ending up with an itchy dry face, or breakouts idk what got into me but the reviews here were awesome. I can’t be happier I use this morning and night and have not had a problem. It smells amazing it feels clean but not stripping. A literal miracle bar of soap.

  3. Monica Bowman

    If you have sensitive, oily, dry, blemish prone, or easily irriatted skin like me this is the facewash for you. It leaves my skin calm, relaxed, clear, and cleansed, and removes all of my makeup if I just have spot concealer, eyebrows and lashes done. It has changed my skin for the better. It also works as my go to body wash!
    I cannot recommend this brand more! The bar lasts a long time, as I cut it into thirds and use pieces as I need. This is the only facewash you will ever need.

  4. James

    Nice item

  5. Rachel R.

    It’s my go to cleanser for my face and body so I order 5 at a time, ha! It’s that good! It’s gentle but also does a really good job on days when I’m more active or after a sweaty workout. I do prefer to double cleanse my face as I’m prone to dryness, using an oil-cleanser before rinsing with the bar. I feel that combo is best to prevent my face from drying out. All around love every product I’ve tried from Root Science.

  6. Lyn

    I bought this soap last year as a facial cleanser for my sensitive skin. When used with warm/cool water it lathers sufficiently and keeps my skin tone in check and hydrated. While undergoing radiation in 2020 this became my go to body soap. Very gentle.

  7. Will D.

    As someone with sensitive, blemish-prone skin, the Cleanse bar has been a life saver! As part of my daily skin regimen, it helps keep my skin clear, smooth and soft, and the bar lasts for months even with daily (sometimes twice a day) use.

  8. Susan Randall

    Wonderfully soft

  9. Michelle Aubert

    I seriously love this soap. Nice light and clean smell that lathers like crazy! It cleans really well and lasts for a very long time. I use everyday morning and night ,and my first bar lasted for about 4 and a half months! I find this bar to be very gentle on my super sensitive rosacea prone skin. I also use with the bright serum for eyes and the bare serum for face, and they are both very gentle as well. I truly appreciate the clean quality ingredients of these products! Thank you Root Science! xoxo

  10. Jessica

    Love! I decided try this soap by chance and I aboloutely love it … all the redness in my skin disappeared. I have a more even skin tone since I have used this soap. I’ve been using it for 3 months and I am on my second bar. The first 3 days I used the soap my skin felt a little tight but my face got adjusted and my skin loves it. Definitely the best face soap I have ever used. It does remove make up but if you do heavy eye makeup you will need a remover. It easily washes off you foundation. I highly recommend, it’s worth the price! Turned my Husband on to this soap and loves it too! Bar lasted about 1 1/2 months but my Husband was using it too, so I would say if only one person is using it would last 3 months ( I wash twice a day). I have sensitive skin and use a heavier night cream and regular day cream. This soap has worked perfect with my skin regimen.

  11. Patricia

    I’ve been using this cleansing bar for a solid month now and I LOVE IT!! As someone with very problematic and complex skin issues… eczema, psoriasis, acne, and sensitivity… I have always struggled to find a product that could take care of it ALL withOUT causing irritation, dryness, overactive sebum, etc. Since switching to this bar and moisturizing with the Bare Oil/Serum, my skin is hydrated, irritation and acne free, and my skin tone is much more even!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

  12. Melissa de la Fuente

    Easy and fresh. The cleanse bar goes on easily and mildly but, comes off feeling extra clean without feeling dried out. Love.

  13. Amanda

    I have very dry, sensitive skin and this cleanser didn’t strip it of any moisture or cause any irritation at all. After rinsing, my face felt very clean, but also soft and comfortable.

  14. Amanda

    This cleanser, combined with the Bare serum, has changed my life. I have always hated my very oily, acne prone skin. I used to say that if I could change one thing about myself, it would be my skin so I could go makeup free and feel confident. This cleanser leaves your face feeling clean and fresh without over drying. It also completely removes eye and face makeup. I have used morning and night for a few years now and seriously cannot live without it. My skin is no longer oily and is clear, soft and healthy. I no longer am self-conscious about my skin and often go makeup free. I always recommend Root Science for their product integrity as well as the results!

  15. Carley

    I absolutely adore this cleanser – an absolute must for my daily routine. The thing I love most about it (aside from being completely organic) is the fact that it cleanses my skin, removes all my make up and still doesn’t strip my skin of it’s natural oils. I combine this with my Bare serum and between the two, it has been working complete wonders on my skin. I have never been more pleased with my skin and how it feels before and after cleansing. My skin does not become achy and flaky as it has done in the past with other non Root Science products. I’m very impressed. This cleanser is a definite must have!

  16. Gail

    I’ve tried a number of facial bar soaps over my lifetime (I’m over 50), preferring the simplicity of a bar, especially for travel, but could never stick with one due to resulting dryness or irritation. I thought I would give it one last try with this RS, and was pleasantly surprised with the softness and ‘normality’ of my skin after use; no dryness or redness. I use this bar after applying a small amount of jojoba oil to remove makeup. A little goes a long way. Looks like a keeper!

  17. Brooke

    I’m such a snob when it comes to beauty products and ever since finding root science, I’ve completely made the switch to using their line for my whole regimen! This cleanser has surpassed my expectations-especially being in bar form. I can’t say enough of how this cleanser has worked wonders on my face (texture, PH balance, removes all dirt & makeup without stripping your face) along with the youth serum, bright eye serum, and detox mask. Sending so much love to the creator. You’ve made my skin beautiful again <3

  18. Sophia

    This beauty bar is better than any face cleanser I’ve used. I use to buy from Shiseido and while their cleanser cleaned well, RS helps to balance my skin way better and for a fraction of the price. This cleanser has many pros: lasts a long time, helps to clean makeup and any residue left on the skin, and can be used on the body (perfect for travel, one less thing to pack). I have eczema and it’s very gentle on me, and leaves the skin super plump and soft. I usually rub coconut oil over my face to break up any stubborn makeup or spf, and then I use this and it lathers like a dream! My bf uses this too and he has oily skin and it works well for him! You could even use it two or three times in a row and it won’t strip your skin at all. I use all the products in the RS line and they are all incredible in quality!

  19. Jenn

    Fantastic cleanser that does exactly what it promises! My skin is on the sensitive side and typically reacts to most products after prolonged but not this time. I follow with a few drops of the Bare Defense serum and skin is calm as a cucumber!

  20. Lauren

    The beauty bar is by far the best skin cleanser I’ve come across in the last decade.. and that’s coming from a beauty product junkaholic! It leaves my skin squeaky clean and buttery soft! This is the holy grail of skin cleansers!

  21. Susan

    This multi-tasking cleanser is a staple in my regimen! It’s creamy texture when lathered is luxurious and the calming effect it has on my skin is just delightful. Truly does an fantastic job cleaning my skin without irritating or over drying. I purchased the complete kit along with a Bare Defense moisturizer, facial scrub and RS Reborn mask and my skin is responding very well to the whole regimen. I can definitely see a big difference in the way my skin looks and acts (keeps my breakouts to a minimum). I’ve tried a lot of other organic skin care lines and Root Science stands out for having the cleanest formulations and higher quality ingredients than others. I do my research and read labels. Thank You Root Science! Truly a fan!

  22. Renee

    Absolutely can not live without! So gentle and calming to my very sensitive skin. Cleans, removes makeup, and smells decadent!

  23. Jessica

    So since I’ve become obsessed with RS products I needed to try this RS beauty bar and I cant even begin to explain how much I love it!!!! I’ve only used it twice and the first time I used it I knew it was a keeper. I’ve never been a big fan of facial bars because I was always worried about bacteria and the perfumes in the bar so I always stayed away. Let’s start with the smell…AMAZING!! The texture of the bar when its wet is not foamy but more of a creamy texture. As soon as I put this on my face it was heaven. There wasn’t any kind of residue either when I rinsed it off which is a huge plus and another reason why i’ve stayed away from facial bars. My skin felt so amazing and so soft and felt squeaky clean, i’m beyond happy with this product! Today I used my RS Facial scrub and then the RS beauty bar and my skin just feels the best its ever been, I wish you (meaning you thats reading this!) could touch it! I am going to continue using it and update my review in one month! Thank you RS!

  24. Carolyn

    This beauty bar is an absolute must!! It’s super gentle and leaves my skin feeling clean and soft! The big bonus was that it removes my makeup! I never thought that an organic and gentle cleanser could serve so many purposes! Can’t live without! TOTAL SKIN SAVER!! Thanks so much RS! Love all your products!
