  • A few weeks ago, I began using the Deitanseki brand charcoal soap out of Japan, and while the first few days were amazing for my skin, I quickly learned that charcoal does not seem to be too friendly to my skin
  • In about 4 or 5 days of general use, my skin became very very dry, almost o the point where I found myself pulling little chunks of dry skin from under my nails as I scratched
  • To be fair, though, I did not do any kind of strenuous activity after using it, as I used it mainly as my night time soap, but considering I did not smell its scent on my pajamas, I think it is safe to say that the scent washes away with the lather
  • One way or the next, the inability to keep a thick lather was not a huge issue, but it certainly something a bit nagging
  • I thought I had found my end all soap, but I was wrong, so the search continues

      I have been quit interested in using a soap with charcoal in it, as charcoal soaps seem to be all the rage. A few weeks ago, I began using the Deitanseki brand charcoal soap out of Japan, and while the first few days were amazing for my skin, I quickly learned that charcoal does not seem to be too friendly to my skin. In about 4 or 5 days of general use, my skin became very very dry, almost o the point where I found myself pulling little chunks of dry skin from under my nails as I scratched. While I do believe this soap to be very good for cleansing the skin (it also has a few clays in it, which work really well as a cleansing

      agent), I simply could not continue to use it due to its ability to dry my skin out really badly. This is a shame, because I really did like this soap before I realized it would be so drying.

      This soap has a real earthy smell. It is not at all unpleasant, nor is it very strong, but it does have the kind of smell you would expect a charcoal and clay based soap bar to have. The bar itself does not have much of a smell, so it did not smell up my shower as it sat in the soap tray, but the second you lather it up and start using it around ht water, the earthy smell does make itself known. The good thing about this smell

      is that it does not seem to linger on your body after you use it. To be fair, though, I did not do any kind of strenuous activity after using it, as I used it mainly as my night time soap, but considering I did not smell its scent on my pajamas, I think it is safe to say that the scent washes away with the lather.

      This soap, however, did not lather up as richly as I would have liked. It seems to lather up really really well at first, but this lather lasts what seems like seconds. I felt like I had to keep lathering he soap in my hand to get any kind of workable suds, and this was not was I was expecting from ...

      this soap. I have heard that charcoal soaps lather up well, but I think that the various clays that are in this specific soap negate the charcoal’s ability to lather well in a soap. One way or the next, the inability to keep a thick lather was not a huge issue, but it certainly something a bit nagging.

      This soap really made my skin feel amazing. Rarely do I try a soap that makes my skin so clean. This soap, when using it, feels as though it is cleaning deep, rather than just sitting aimlessly on the surface of your skin. After washing it off, my skin felt so smooth and so clean that I thought I had finally found a soap that would end all my other soap

      use. This smooth and clean feeling lasted for hours after I had washed it off, and this really felt amazing.

      Of course, there is always a drawback. After using this soap for about four days, my skin became so dry that I could not stand it. My skin began feeling crunchy, and peeling off as though I has spent too long in the sun. While I was not particularly itchy, it was just not what I look for from a soap, and that is a shame.

      This soap is decently priced considering the amount you get, and it does a really good job at cleaning the skin, but it was just too drying for me. I thought I had found my end all soap, but I was wrong, so the search continues.
