Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wish is that I knew about Erno Laszlo 20 years ago After years of trying every (EVERY) product at the pharmacy, department stores, dermatologist, I tried this facial bar in April 2016. I haven't bought another product/brand since. I noticed a dramatic difference in my skin within a week. I use the Phelityl Pre-Cleansing Oil first, which just works for my skin. Do not be intimidated by the video showing the routine- its not hard or time consuming. And its not expensive- buying new products every few weeks is expensive! I looks years younger, my skin is brighter, and my only wish is that I knew about Erno Laszlo 20 years ago. I recommend it to everyone who asks about my improved complexion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not The Classic Sea Mud Soap I have been using Erno Laszlo since the early 1970's! At that time you had to have a membership card to even qualify to purchase the products. Through the years all the formulas have changed until you cannot recognize the products. This soap, and many of the other products are a pale reflection of the "old" ones and I am terribly sad about it. Where are all the wonderful skin improving ingredients? This is just soap with charcoal! Even the wonderful classic scent is gone. Would I recommend that someone pay $$$ for this? NO! The old classic formulas were worth every penny. When I wash with this soap my sink and face are covered in black film. The old soap NEVER did that!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from so sad i began using laszlo in the 70's. i started with an introductory of products for my 12:00 skin type. yes, the associate determined your appropriate o'clock thru questions and observation. the cleansing routine was different from others - who can forget the splashes. my skin responded in a way that was beyond my expectations. I have returned to Laszlo in recent years and am not thrilled with the changes. the soaps are smaller and a different shape - the previous shape was perfect for the routine. there have been so many changes.bi believe dr. Laszlo is turning in his grave over what has been done to his product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Cleanser Ever I have been using this soap since 1987 and there is no other cleanser--soap or otherwise--that can match it. The look, the smell, the feel of it in your hand, the way it exfoliates and cleanses 100% of everything off of your face & out of your pores--makeup, oil, grime-- without drying. Yet it somehow also manages to reduce breakouts and clogged pores. I use it once/day and the bar lasts me about 1 year! How can you beat the price with all that it offers and how long it lasts? Even though my skin is a little less oily than it was, and breaks out a little less than it did, 25 years ago, this soap still works just as effectively for me. The best, period.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Formula I had admittedly been away from the Laszlo ritual for a bit, and decided to return, starting with the cleansing products. I opened my first shipment of Sea Mud soap expecting that familiar fragrance and it's changed completely. Is this a new formula or just a fragrance change? Please go back to the old fragrance if possible, this new one is unpleasant. My star ratings are based on the previous experiences I had with sea mud soap. I am hoping that the formula has remained the same, it has been iconic for so many decades I honestly never expected a change in the Sea Mud.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must-have My first time purchasing this soap after falling in love with other EL products and I can definitely say it's going to be a staple. It does everything it states and more. I have normal/combination skin that's also prone to dryness so I hesitated on this for a while but am SO glad I purchased. It doesn't dry out your skin. Instead it provides a most thorough cleansing, plus exfoliation, even moisture, and it's the only soap that I can actually say has made a difference in pore size. I came back for more products including the matching cleansing oil after this and also love their hydrogel masks. So luxurious. Highly recommend!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No star power I began using Laszlo in 1975, for adult acne. The oil/black soap regiment was a miracle for my skin. Why oh why did you change the formula and size of the soap? And why are you advising a different regiment? I realize you're trying to attract the younger group, so why not have a "legend" group of products for those of us who grew up with the originals? I hope you will bring back the originals because I won't allow my granddaughters to use it...it's not the same!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from UNBELIEVABLE! I used to use Erno Laszlo products in the 1980's and quit whenever newer skincare was advertised, etc. I just decided to try Laszlo again. Ordered what I used to use: Sea Mud Soap and Detoxifying Cleansing Oil. I have dry skin. This combo has made my skin look smoother, cleaner and just "unbelievable!" My skin never looked this good with other products. I will always order from Erno Laszlo. Maybe I will eventually turn back time to my 20's!! :)

Does this soap still come with the black container for storage? 

Asked by: Askingformyhusband
We removed the Soap Dish from the packaging in January in an effort to be sustainable. We will be debuting a new recyclable soap dish at a later date.

Why has the formula been changed?

Asked by: Tomandjicky
The formula has not changed in over 8 years. At that time, the adjustment was due to us pulling some animal related ingredients from the formula.

Is this like special skin soap for oily skin? like the one that use to be blue? 

Asked by: jessie123
This is a different line then the Special Skin Soap, however it is what we suggest for those looking for a substitute for the discontinued soap. It is for normal, to oily/acne prone skin, and works best when paired with Light Controlling Lotion, our toner for oily skin.

Hi, What would be the best EL anti-aging regimen for 53 years old woman? For firmness, elasticity, wrinkles, glow of the skin? Normal to oily skin, with large pores, rosacea, lines and wrinkles? Thank you.

Where can I buy this today?

Asked by: jenn
You can purchase this fantastic Sea Mud Cleansing Bar from retailers such as Nordstrom but I prefer to order online from Laszlo. I've used this miracle cleansing soap since 1968 and love the way it detoxifies my skin to give me soft feeling and smooth skin. An added bonus is that Sea Mud consistently minimizes my pores.
