Need a lift? This unique time-release bar refreshes instantly then works throughout the day and night—lifting, smoothing and firming skin long after the cleansing is done. Gently clears away oil and impurities on the skin’s surface to allow its potent marine actives and antioxidants to absorb more easily, including:

  • Spirulina Maxima—a water-activated and nano-encapsulated algae extract—to boost skin renewal by penetrating skin cells for long-acting lifting.

  • Antioxidant vitamins C and E to protect skin from free radicals and other environmental stressors.

  • Moisturizing shea butter to support skin’s renewal process by smoothing and softening dry or rough skin.

Be in the know:
Our Cleansing Bars boast the highest concentration of powerful skincare actives. In addition, some of our bars rely on advanced nano-encapsulation technology to deliver time-released spheres able to penetrate skin’s surface allowing active ingredients to work even longer than conventional cleansers. Plus, contrary to popular belief, Cleansing Bars are inherently unfriendly environments to microbes that only grow on food sources (such as your skin’s sebum oil.) Translation: as soon as the bar touches your skin, it begins to combat the oil that bacteria thrive on.

How to Use

Use directly after Cleansing Oil, morning and night, as part of your bespoke Double Cleansing Ritual. First, dampen the bar under warm water. Next, gently massage the wet bar over your face using the rounded corners to stimulate circulation. You can also use your hands and fingertips to create a rich lather as well, remembering to include the delicate area of the neck. Rinse with warm water. Blot skin dry. Follow with toner, treatments and moisturizers to match your skin’s needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from most effective Until the new Firmarine Cleansing Oil was offered I used the cleansing bar and found it most effective. However if I was wearing foundation I'd need to cleanse twice . Once to remove the makeup then again to actually cleanse my skin properly. Since using both the oil and bar, more so than ever, my skin feels softer while maintaining its firmness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from firmarine clesnsing bar Wow! I have tried just about every cleansing product on the market, I even had a separate morning cleanser but not anymore. This bar leaves my skin clean and fresh without stripping it. There is also the light clean fragrance which is to die for. Thank you Erno Laszlo for this wonderful addition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review Title * Looking at the picture, I thought this would be a full size bar. It's not at all what I expected when I ordered it online. It's about a little three inch square glycerin bar with no soap dish and it priced at the same amount as a full size bar. Not worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Cleansing Bar I love how this cleansing bar easily foams in my hands and cleanses my skin. My face feels moist and soft after I wash with Firmarine Face Bar. I don’t worry about my skin feeling pulled or too dry. In fact my skin feels rejuvenated after I wash with Firmarine Face Bar. I feel it is a great buy for the price because the bar lasts for months. I am over 65 years old and I love how this face bar cleans my skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like No Other The Firmarine Cleansing Bar is like no other soap bar on the market. How can a bar of soap firm the skin? This one does and with continued use delivers amazing results in clarity, tone, and overall glow. Yep, from a soap. I look forward to trying more Laslo products and just wish there was a counter at nearby store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My current favorite!!! I love the way this makes my skin feel. It's not at all heavy, but hydrates and smooths wonderfully. It's the perfect balance for my skin! I use it alone or with the original Phelityl Pre-Cleansing Oil, depending on the time of year and what my skin needs. This is definitely my favorite cleansing bar!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Falling apart I do like this soap, but, for the price, it’s annoying that it is literally splint in 2.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from First Time User Just ordered the Firmarine Cleansing Bar, so far I really like the results. I have used Phelityl Bar and the Sea Mud Deep Cleansing Bar for years. As I have gotten older I wanted to see if the Firmarine Bar would help minimize some of the aging. Giving this only a 3 because I have used it for only about 10 days.

Why this soap on web site picture color is blue, but I received is green? (Is this correct? Or my is old style one? )

Asked by: Vicky
That is correct! As the soap oxidizes, it changes color from blue to a turquoise-green color. It does make it less effective.

My husband really likes this product.  But it is smaller now- 100grams rather than 140 grams and has a plastic soap dish with each bar, It is not recyclable so it adds to the landfill.  Would rather have more of the product than the soap dish. 

Asked by: Turtlewoman
I have been using EL since I was 16, now 49. As a male growing up with EL I have witnessed the many changing sizes and packaging. Origionally it came with a white plastic bottom with black top for $45 in the 140 gram size. Then it changed to NO container at all and just the 140 gram bar of soap, same price. The next change was a redesign of the small black soap tray with a white plastic lid that covered the top and side still with 140gram soap, same price. Now it has changed completely to 100 gram soap with what appears to be a travel slide plastic container, last I ordered 6 months ago was still $45. Now, I see for this new container with smaller soap size has come down to $38, but still not a good value because I have to order twice more to cover the yield I received from the 140gram bar. All of these changes up until this past year were the same price. The reason I know all of these changes is i still have a couple of all the containers. Yes, 30+ years ago you had to go to their counter and have a skin evaluation, where then  they designated the soaps according to times from 12oclock,  ....up till 4oclock. Meaning from oily, moderate oily, dry, to very dry. You were issued a store card with all your information, so if you forgot they could pull up your history. Over the years your skin changes and would have another evaluation to change to a bar to fit your changing  skin. Over the years it was sometimes difficult to find which store brand carried before internet. I have continued to seek out and find, because it really is the best product in my male opinion. Even though I'm 49, I have the appearance of early 30's,  Fabulous!!! My regime now is the sea mud soap in the morning with light controlling lotion and moisturiser and the bluish green soap at night, along with beta wash to remove the days grime, followed by light conditioning lotion, which  they have an economy size, 1.5 size  they offer a couple times a year for  $75. The only other products I as a  man use is the anti-oxidant complex for eyes. I have tried the 3-9 for eyes and moisturiser but believe you don't always have to use the same brand to accomplish the same goals, plus they are a little pricey. But if it works for you, use it!! I have never been to a dermatologist, because EL has always worked for me and I wash my face twice daily, morning and night, religiously! I highly recommend it to any age, but the earlier you start, the better your skin looks, feels and shows!!! It's good to experiment with new products, which is what EL is trying to do to keep us all looking and feeling the best about our selves, but those of us that knows which work best for us, please consider our comments! Yes, I'm disgruntled by the size changes, but I won't stop using, I just  hope that EL hears my response and makes the product formulas and sizes I  have known  and loved for 30+ years.
