Charcoal Facial Bar

(79 customer reviews)


Our tried-and-true soap recipe is back in black! Charcoal is all the rage and for good reason. It works overtime to cleanse and help detox skin. We added plant-based butter to balance out any potential drying effect to create the perfect cleansing bar, even for sensitive skin. We make this amazing soap unscented, or with Spearmint essential oil for that added tingle.


Soap subject to availability.

Safe for ages one year+. Safe for use while pregnant and breastfeeding. Made with 100% natural ingredients. Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, Corn-Free, Nut-Free, Vegan. No Artificial Colors, Preservatives, or Fragrances.

 Cruelty free and never tested on animals; Leaping Bunny certified.



Unlike other, more expensive charcoal bars we use whole, natural ingredients to formulate our cleansing soap. Most other bars are primarily detergents. Not ours! We make a true soap bar.

We may have named it a “facial bar” but it’s good for the whole body! It has dozens of reviews raving about clearer, more moisturised faces and bodies. It’s gentle, moisturizing, and luxurious thanks to the butter and coconut milk packed into this ultra-nourishing recipe. The Spearmint scent even has a little invigorating tingle to it. Try both scents and see why our Charcoal Facial Bar is one of our best sellers!

    Love this bar. I have less breakouts now and it lasts forever! I’ve had it for 2 months and theirs barely a dent in it.

  2. Kylene Eacret (verified owner)

    I love the charcoal face bar! I cut it into fourths so I could keep one in my shower and one in the bath. It leaves my skin feeling fresh, but not dry. The smell is amazing! I really suggest it for any skin type.

  3. Jordan Long (verified owner)

    This is a great start to my face routine! I suds up my face then go over it with a silicone scrubber. Love the smell!

  4. Sarah W. (verified owner)

    I LOVE this bar! All natural, doesn’t dry or break out my skin, keeps my acne breakouts to a minimum, smells good, and doesn’t break the bank like other charcoal bars. What more could a girl ask for?! One of my must have Earthley products!

  5. Nevada

    I use this bar every night and absolutely LOVE it. my skin has cleared up and actually feels clean and refreshed. I have ditched my other face wash and use this instead.

  6. Emily Lavender (verified owner)

    I really love this facial bar. The spearmint smell is refreshing! One bar lasts a while too. I ordered my first bar in July and it’s lasted me all of July and August and I foresee it getting me through September too. Great product!

  7. Venessa

    This is by far my favorite soap. I love the smell.

  8. Stacy (verified owner)

    I’ve used so many store bought facial cleansers and this is by far my favorite. Not only because the ingredients are clean, but because it works!

  9. Heather Amador (verified owner)

    I had never used a charcoal bar before, and within two weeks of using this on my face in the morning and before bed, I noticed my blackheads clearing! It is not drying, which I have had issues with with other cleansers, even natural ones. I have also noticed that my red splotchiness has disappeared and my tone looks natural now!

  10. Ri-Anna Holcomb (verified owner)

    I absolutely LOVE this soap. It smells amazing and makes my skin feel great! I get acne in the same spot around my mouth each month during my cycle and for the last two months, my skin has been clear! I am totally sold and could not recommend this soap enough!

  11. Brenda (verified owner)

    I love that this soap does NOT dry out my face! My face has cleared up SO much since I started using it! And I love the smell!

  12. Tara (verified owner)

    My 12 year old son is using this bar and we LOVE it!! It has helped him with having pimples on his forehead and it does not dry out his face. I also will be using this soon and can not wait, but I promised my husband to use up my old products first before I use this.

  13. Cellina Robillard (verified owner)

    The mint smells amazing, and makes my face feel so clean and soft while still feeling gentle. Is beginning to improve my acne as well.

  14. Kelly Charles (verified owner)

    I love this face bar! It leaves my skin feeling so clean and so soft. It’s a gentle cleanser. I love the clean ingredients so much that I have both of my teen boys using it. Really great product!

  15. Stephanie (verified owner)

    The spearmint smells amazing! It works great for my acne! I just use it in the shower!

  16. Lauren (verified owner)

    Use this for my face after washing my makeup off. I’ve had trouble with these tiny little bumps on my face lately and this has helped so much! I love this one daily!

  17. Faith (verified owner)

    LOVE this facial cleansing bar!!! It helped clear up my crazy pregnancy skin.

  18. Tab (verified owner)

    I use NOTHING else now that I’ve found a charcoal bar that is truly gunk-free and my face shows it! Unscented charcoal is my fav and sold out frequently so now I keep an extra on-hand.

  19. Natalie (verified owner)

    I absolutely love this unscented.
    My skin is in the best condition since using this and rose toner plus Earthley’s moisturize me for dry skin. So in love

  20. Jennifer Deane

    My son broke out when he turned 13. I bought the charcoal bar for him & it makes a noticeable difference in his acne. He also loves the smell!

  21. Kail

    Love it! I’ve struggled to find clean charcoal bars so I was excited to hear earthley was coming out with one. It gently cleanses so it’s not too harsh on my skin and also works great to clean my makeup brushes!

  22. Rebecca S (verified owner)

    This bar leaves my face feeling so refreshed, clean, and soft! The mint adds the perfect cool touch!

  23. Kirsten Elliott (verified owner)

    Absolutely love this!

  24. Michelle

    My 6 year old saw me using this and begged and begged me to use it on him because it was “Batman” soap, I was worried because he has severely dry skin and I have to oil him after showers to keep his skin from being red, irritated, and seriously dry, after giving in and using it, his skin was so soft and no redness or anything, I could actually see a difference after a few uses that his hard bumps on his legs are gone now. All 4 of my boys fight over the soap now so going to have to buy a few bars at a time.

  25. chastachampion1 (verified owner)

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! I use the charcoal bar daily to cleanse my face and my skin has never felt better. I was using another brand before, paid 3x more and it had other harsh ingredients. So happy to have found Earthley. It also lasts a really long time. Big Bang for your buck!

  26. April Dehm (verified owner)

    I love my charcoal soap! It has a slight “fresh” feeling after using it, so i like to use it in the morning. It’s charcoal, so it’s black and it does show up in my shower, but it’s super easy to clean up. It seems to work real well and it lasts for a long time!

  27. Sarah (verified owner)

    I was pleasantly surprised by how well this bar creates a lather. I got the smaller size so I could try it out and it does the job. My skin feels clean and fresh after using and it doesn’t dry my skin out and on the contrary seems very moisturizing. I keep it in a small soap dish because I don’t want the actual bar to stain my sink while it sits, but once you lather and rinse, there isn’t a dark residue or anything in your sink or shower.

  28. Kristina Miller

    I have very oily acne prone skin so I got this to use to help keep my skin clear. Normally postpartum my acne comes back with vengeance but it hasn’t been nearly as bad this time since using this soap! I use a spinning facial brush to clean my face with this soap and I love love love it! It leaves my skin feeling so soft and clean without drying it out!

  29. Abbey Westphal (verified owner)

    I was using another company’s charcoal bar that I paid over $30 for, so I figured I would give this one a try. I LOVE the spearmint one! It lasts forever and the ingredients are so clean.

  30. Nicole (verified owner)

    I was given the sample size in a give-away and it looks like it’s about a fourth of the normal size ones you purchase normally and it took me 4 months to use the 1/4th size of one, so for me it will take over a year to use a normal size one! Any way, I use the soap twice a day and I love the feeling of how clean my skin is! I have sensitive skin and I have never broken out with using this product for the last 4 months. I just reordered 2 more bars, an Unscented one which I am used to and now will try the scented one, so excited! You will love it!

  31. Allie Canavan

    I honestly feel cleaner and softer after user this on my face than any other facewash I’ve tried. The others made my skin feel “squeaky clean” and to me that just felt like I still has some type of residue on my skin. But this bar is perfect. A little goes a long way and it’s gentle and doesn’t have a weird smell. Love it so far!

  32. yasminrpeterson (verified owner)

    This soap is amazing! Large quantity, low price, and high quality ingredients. Lathers up so well and feels great on your face! Smells good too. The best part is, it has really been helping clear up my stubborn acne, without drying out my face. Love love love!

  33. Tina

    This product is amazing, I love it!! It makes my skin feel so smooth and clean! And the best part is its all natural!!

  34. Hope Cymbaluk (verified owner)

    Favorite facial bar! Lathers up nice and makes my face feel freshed. The prices on this site can’t be beat either!

  35. kow3814 (verified owner)

    Love this facial bar! Lathers quickly and rinses well. Naturally exfoliates. I cut a small chunk off of the big bar to make it last longer. My face feels SO clean but also moisturized after each use. I also use this with my Clarisonic Mia to deep clean my face. It lathers so nicely and spreads well. Excellent value for such a large bar. I use it nightly, and one bar will last you forever – it only takes a little bit!

  36. Beth Rogers (verified owner)

    Loooove this!! Has cleared up so many of my blackheads and 1 bar lasts forever!

  37. Jessica (verified owner)

    This gets my face clean without drying it out. I rarely break out anymore. I love this soap, and the price can’t be beat!

  38. Shelby Mayes

    I absolutly LOVE this charcoal cleansing bar! This was my first time using a charcoal bar of any kind, and let me tell you, it’s amazing and you can’t beat the price!! Since having my daughter 2 years ago, my face has been a wreck with cystic acne (something I NEVER had prior to pregnancy). None of my prior face care regimins were working and I was becoming very frustrated/self concise about the situation. I gave this a try along with the Deep Healing Skin Serum, and my face has not been this clear or felt this good in MONTHS! I have purchased a few other products of theirs, and although I have only been using them a short time, I noticed improvements quickly! I can’t wait to try even more of their great products for my family and self!

  39. Krystin Morse

    I got this in the Ultimate Skincare Bundle and I absolutely love it. It leavea my face feeling so clean with no after residue. It’s not super abrasive which is Greta for sensitive skin like mine, yet it gets the job done! I’ve been using it with the rollerball and it’s a match the works well for my skin.. I love washing my face with the charcoal bar before bed, especially since I don’t have the luxury of showering every night.

  40. kelseyeoneal

    Oh and it also is excellent as a detox soap for your armpits!! Great soap!!

  41. kelseyeoneal

    My favorite soap EVER to use on my face!! I have extremely difficult skin. Dry in some areas and oily in others., very very sensitive, break out so much (never a problem until after pregnancy ) and rosacea. I can never find anything to work well for my fave and actually make it better. This bar is a game changer!!! Can’t love it more!!

  42. Kelly

    What an amazing product, I have dry yet oily at times skin and I was a little worried about how this may make my skin feel but BOY was I wrong to worry!!!! This cleans very gently and has a good lather to it. It washes off nice and doesn’t leave a film or dryness at all. My husband who swore he would never use it has started to use it and can’t get enough as well. He has acne prone skin and by using this for the last week there has been a marked difference in his acne. It has improved a ton and he is no longer getting the deep cystic acne anymore. We use the unscented version.

  43. Marissa (verified owner)

    Two days of using the charcoal bar and I love it! Skin feels less itchy and smooth. I’ve never been one for a bedtime care routine, but look forward to washing my face with this. Anxious to try the other facial skin care products as money will allow. As I approach 50, I suppose I need to take better care of myself.

  44. josie Cole (verified owner)

    I didn’t expect this to be as drying on my face as it was. I think maybe using it every other wash or only a few times a week would help with that if your prone to dry skin. I do however , appreciate the clean ingredients you use.

  45. Brenda Good (verified owner)

    My daughter had awful acne during her pregnancy. I gave her this bar and within days her face was clearing up.

  46. Jessica Pane (verified owner)

    I wanted to jump on the charcoal bandwagon and tried a sample from a friend from another company. It was great but the price was steep. I ordered the one from Earthly instead for a third of the price and was NOT disappointed! My skin is detoxed without being dried out. I’m excited to try the spearmint one next time!

  47. Amanda (verified owner)

    I love this soap! I have been lookin for something to clean my face and it works great! It doesn’t remove all of my eye makeup because I wear so much haha but other than that I love it!

  48. Brittany S. (verified owner)

    My husband uses it. His complexion is brighter after using it and the redness is reduced.

  49. LeAnna (verified owner)

    I bought the 1 oz size quite a while ago. I just replaced it with another travel size and a full size one. My face is clean and not one chemical in sight.

  50. Brittany Marty (verified owner)

    I’m so happy I switched to this for my face! I love how gentle it is on my skin.

  51. DRM (verified owner)

    This seemed to work pretty well, but it dried out my skin too much, so I switched to the Oatmeal based soap that Earthley sells, and that has worked a lot better for me.

  52. Megan G

    This has been my favorite facial cleanser so far. It cleaned my face well enough to remove all make up and oil, yet not completely strip my skin of natural oils. Typically my skin is so dry in the Winter, yet this cleanser still leaves my skin looking bright and refreshed, not dry and flaky.

  53. Kate (verified owner)

    I will never go back to regular face wash! I got a sample of this bar and I love it. My skin has been clearer and smooth. It cleans my makeup off too!

  54. Emily (verified owner)

    I love how clean my skin feels and how long the bar lasts! Definitely worth it!

  55. Jessica (verified owner)

    As a 35 year old woman, I am, unfortunately, still prone to acne. This bar, while ugly and bland smelling (unscented) cleans my face perfectly in the shower each morning, and my acne has decreased dramatically! My skin is no longer overly oily, nor is it dry, just fresh and healthy feeling. I’ve already ordered a replacement in mint.

  56. Morgan Marshall (verified owner)

    I am in love with this facial bar! The charcoal is just what my face needs to get a good cleaning, and I absolutely love how clean and refreshed my skin feels after using.

  57. Marissa (verified owner)

    I really like this. The fact that it’s priced so reasonable makes it even better!

  58. Brenda Good (verified owner)

    I bought this for my daughter. When she got pregnant her hormones went crazy. Her face was so broke out. She started using this and I was impressed. Her beautiful skin is back.

  59. Jennifer (verified owner)

    Love this! Has helped with acne without the dryness most soaps cause

  60. Heidi Hayes (verified owner)

    I was very happy to find this. My daughter and I had been gifted a charcoal bar from a very expensive natural cosmetic company. I loved it, but couldn’t afford to buy another. Earthly’s charcoal bar is reasonable and works well.

  61. Madeline (verified owner)

    This is a staple in our house! I like that it doesnt dry out my skin while it cleanses and keeps my achne to a minimum!

  62. Stacey Jackson (verified owner)

    My skin especially on my face is very sensitive and this is very gentle. I like it

  63. Felicia (verified owner)

    Works good!

  64. Ashley (verified owner)

    By far, my favorite facial bar I’ve ever tried. I’ve used charcoal bars from other companies but this one is superior. I can’t go without one. I use it along with the charcoal mask. It helps the mask to come off a lot better than using regular soap.

  65. Jenna Mueller (verified owner)

    I love this charcoal bar! I had been using a different charcoal bar previously but Earthley’s leaves your skin feeling SOOO much better! It leaves your face feeling soft, clean, and my acne is definitely improving since usiing this product.

  66. Erin Bishop (verified owner)

    Love this product! Leaves my face feeling clean, soft, and beautiful! It smells wonderful! And a little bit goes a long way so the 4oz bar last forever!

  67. Ashley Musick

    This is the first charcoal soap I’ve tried and I love it. I have very healthy skin as it it and this wasn’t too drying. Also, it lasts FOREVER. Ive got the sample size and use it for my face 3-5 times per week and estimate ill get atleast 6-8months out of it.

  68. Kathy Cochran (verified owner)

    The Charcoal Facial bar works great on my face and my body. Love it!

    Even my husband likes it.

  69. Elizabeth Nelson (verified owner)

    Sorry, one more thing! The 1 oz bars is the gift I give all my friends and family on the side of their larger gifts 🙂 I really love this one!

  70. Elizabeth Nelson (verified owner)

    Ok, this is seriously a gift soap bar for my face! I use this with EVERY shower! They now have spearmint back in a stock and bought myself the BIG one and AM IN HEAVEN! I am not a big face washer who uses all kinds of different products on my face. I am simple and literally only use this to clean my face specifically in the shower. The spearmint is bomb too and makes me feel extra clean and fresh! Along with the toner now (I have started using their toner after my shower and it clears up any small pimples within a day. I had never even heard of a toner until now 🙂 ) my skin is seriously looking better than ever. If you do buy the big bar I would cut into 4ths just because the big bar is big along with my other soaps on my shower ledge :).

  71. Molly

    I am so happy I got the free sample of this! I love your moisturizer and night oil(rejuvenate me?) also. I was so frustrated with the more natural face washes and moisturizers that you find at the store because my skin would still break out from them. The one natural company that makes skin care products that I also loved, I could not afford. I feel like my skin is less red and more glowing from this also. I never write reviews on products, but I was so thrilled with these products. My sister told me the other day that I looked beautiful, and I attributed it to your skin care regime! So a very happy costumer here! I thought the “Tone Me” was way too drying for my face though.

  72. Elizabeth (verified owner)

    Love it! I have sensitive skin, but this charcoal face bar keeps my breakouts under control. I use it in combination with whipped butter, and my skin looks and feels amazing!

  73. Erin

    I love this bar for cleaning my sensitive face. My skin is clearer and less irritated than ever before!

  74. Nichole

    Love it. I have problem skin and I use this mornings and before bed with the Earthley skin care line. My face is clean and feels amazing afterwards.

  75. Charity

    I love this charcoal face bar smells great and makes my skin feel clean and soft! The price is also nice cause the bar is pretty big and last a while.

  76. Catlyn McElheny (verified owner)

    By far my favorite face wash. I started using it daily but I have sensitive skin and had to start using it every other day. Perfect. The spearmint smell is amazing. Keep it away from the shower water and store in a dry place and you’re golden. Seriously a must have!

  77. Mary (verified owner)

    When I found out Earthley was coming out with a Charcoal facial bar, I was ecstatic because I have had my eye on them for awhile (after years of just using baking soda out of frugality)! I haven’t found a charcoal bar with natural ingredients for less than $30, so this was a no brainer for me.
    I was honestly a little concerned that it would be drying (my skin has been crazy dry since I have been pregnant) because I have read that activated charcoal can have that effect, but it wasn’t at all! It has actually had the opposite effect (I’m guessing because of the butters and oils used to make the bar). I purchased the Spearmint version, so, aside from smelling amazing, if FEELS amazing and tingly on my skin while, at the same time, extremely moisturizing…something I’ve never experienced with a facial cleanser before.
    My husband keeps telling me how soft my skin feels!

  78. Jessica Leighton

    It was kinda gross looking and I didn’t feel clean after using it

    • modernamama

      We’re sorry you didn’t like it, Jessica! Charcoal soap is not for everyone. 🙂 It definitely has a bit of gray-ness to it when washing. It also cleans very gently, so if you’re used to more harsh cleansers, this isn’t like that. Contact support if you need any help.

  79. Naturalmommygear

    Love this bar!
