One of the Best Skin Care Reviews I’ve Seen

From: Wendy B


I have been wanting to write to you for so long! I have had rosacea for
about 10 Years. I began exploring options for treatment by going to a
dermatologist, like most people do. I was not satisfied when one after
another, each doctor recommended oral antibiotics which I was not interested
in taking at all!I suffered through an agonizing 6 or 7 more years trying
different topical treatments, recommended by doctors. One day, while I was
at the school where I work, a parent asked me if I had rosacea. I told her
that I did and she recommended Carly’s Soap because it had worked so well
for her. I ordered it right away. From the first day I used it, I could not
believe the difference it made in my skin. This has never been more obvious
than recently when, sitting at a local restaurant, a lady complimented me on
my beautiful skin. I have never in my life been complimented on such a
thing! I almost cried. I thought about all of the years I spent covering my
face with my hands, which only made my acne worse. Thank you so much for
your products. I LOVE everything I have tried and I have my daughter’s
boyfriend using the cleanser and soap also. He is a welder and his skin
stays hot, greasy, and wet. His acne had been VERY bad until he started
using Carly’s Soap. WE hope you never stop making these products. Sincerely,
Wendy B.


I don’t usually shamelessly plug customers reviews like this but this one really made my day!

Whether you find success in Carley’s or another company, you should know that there’s always something out there that can help you. Sometimes it takes going pH neutral or getting rid of benzoyl peroxide completely from your skin care routine.

Using the Natural Soap

The proper way to store the soap when traveling

Did you know that soap can breathe? You’d know a lot about natural soap if you took a look at what real soap looks like. It’s colorless, usually odorless and sensitive to the environment. Colors may change depending on the environment. Since we use the finest vegetable ingredients we can find they often vary by batch. Most of our ingredients come from incredibly diverse areas where they are made differently such as Shea butter. This means that each batch differs slightly in appearance.

Dark spots on the soap bars are not uncommon. As the soap ages, it will continue to discolor. This is normal and one of the reasons this is such a good soap! Beware of any products that look as good on Day 1 as they do in a year. Other soaps use chemicals (plasticizers) to preserve the same appearance for years.

Do not store soap in a plastic bag

Our soap bars will physically change over time. To many, as the soap ages it actually mellows and becomes even better. Like a fine wine!

Do not store this soap in a plastic bag. It is best to allow the natural soap to breathe. If you place this soap next to regular store bought soap it may absorb chemicals or odors from those soaps as well. This is also why the soap should breathe in an open environment.

Avoid a “Vanishing” Bar
While many tells us our large soap bars last forever, we have others that say they go through the bars like clockwork. With such a lathery bar of soap as ours, be sure and put the soap in a soap dish that is well drained and out of the shower stream. This will allow our soap to dry between showers or baths. If our natural soap stays wet in a puddle of water, it will melt fast.

Pro tip from our customer, Jill:

Cut your bars in quarters when you get them. They are already large “blocks” as it is and cut fairly easily. Dividing the bars increases the surface area and allows for the soap to “breathe” easier. Did we mention it’s easier to give to your friends that way?

Pro Tip from another customer, Caseh:

After cutting the bar into quarters take a cloth and wipe the soap hard a few times. This should create plenty of foam to wash the face with. This method also saves a lot of the soap so you can keep using that bar for months!
