Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pay more for less This product is wonderful, HOWEVER, they have reduced the thickness of the bar by half but not the price. Used to be a good value and it lasted along time. I am not sure I will pay this price again for basically half the product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Where’s the soap? I have used EL for 30 years. Just ordered a new bar and for the money it is half of the usual size. The container it came in is unusable and impractical. And what happened to the o’clocks?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Now Love Cleansing Bars! The Phelityl Cleansing Bar is my new favorite cleansing product. Before trying this bar, I only used liquid cleansers. This product has changed this for me. I love how my skin feels after each use. For the first time I have found a cleansing product that leaves my skin feeling hydrated. This is especially welcomed with the cold winter weather that we've been having. The Phelityl Cleansing Bar feels like a luxury item. It will transport your cleansing routine to a spa-like experience. It's also worth noting that the packaging is so nice. I especially like how the case doubles as a soap dish. I will definitely be purchasing this product again when I run out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this!! Now I want to preface this by saying that I didn’t use this soap the way the company recommends. The company recommends that you use a cleansing oil before issuing their soap. I can see why they recommend that because the soap leaves the skin feeling “squeaky” clean. That being said, I think the soap did a good job cleaning my face and left a good base for applying my serums and moisturizer. I like the smell because it’s not so strong that I feel like I’m hurting my nose rubbing it in. The box the soap comes in is very nice and it makes me feel spoiled to see it on my counter. Thank you for the opportunity to try this product!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard-working, but not hard on my skin This Phelityl Cleansing Bar was something my skin needed while dealing with some hormonal breakouts. It helped to calm my skin without leaving it flaky. This is no ordinary soap; it is definitely a luxury product. It rinsed cleanly and without leaving my skin feeling stripped. I used this bar with a wettened konjac sponge as well as a powered silicone cleansing tool and have been very happy with the results. The nicely-designed 2-piece soapdish/travel case is has a base with a raised pattern that prevents the bar from becoming soggy. The generous size of this bar should enable several months of use if properly stored. I received this bar as a gift in exchange for my honest feedback.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy this soap for my husband purchasing is product for a couple years now and I've been absolutely impressed with that the last purchase I made I was quite disappointed because the product has changed quite significantly not only is it my way there but it also changed in the way it's Mal this is a man facial bar, and it seems like there's been a significant amount of perfume added to it let's make that small very feminine. The product still does a great job at clean I just really like the product that was before these changes .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Immediate amazing results I used Erno Lazlo many years ago and stopped. I am now in my early 60's and decided I needed to take "special care" of my skin on my face especially. People I worked with (my boss) noticed immediately and commented. So you see you've got my vote.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cleanse!! I have been using Erno Laszlo for almost 30 years and am a loyal client and true believer in its effectiveness. This line's history shows how amazing its client's believe it to be. I will be using Laszlo as long as I am able.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from compliments I have been using Erno Laszlo since 1982. It cleared up my skin problems & I have never had another skin issue since. I frequently get compliments about how healthy my skin looks & so glowing. Now at my age I have had to address dryness. All the products for the drier skin have produced. I do not look my age thanks to Erno Laszlo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply love it! I love this! It is a very gentle, moisturizing and light cleansing bar for my slightly dry skin, but when I finish with the whole splashing-ritual and everything, it feels like my skin has been deeply cleansed. Amazing how it can do that, even though it is so moisturizing and does not dry out my skin at all when I use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leaves my skin so soft! I enjoy my EL ritual twice a day thanks to Phelityl Cleansing Bar! After rinsing my face does not feel tight or dry, it just feels clean and soft. It's a bargain because the bar lasts a long time, I've used mine for 3 months and will probably last 2-3 months longer. This is a must have for winter skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is Erno Laszlo's 5 Star Soap IMO Laszlo's iconic Sea Mud Soap gets the most attention, and I truly love the feel and smell of Sea Mud and it was great for my skin when I was oily and younger, but now this is my main staple coupled with Active Phelityl Oil. It leaves your skin totally clean and supple, not taut and dry. Love it!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite mild facial soap I have used Erno Laszlo sea mud soap for many years because I still have some acne at age 62, but sometimes when my skin is irritated already, I need a milder soap that will not leave my face dry after washing. This is it! It is creamy and doesn’t take a lot to thoroughly soap up the face and neck in creamy luxury! I use warm water to soap up and also to rinse, and even after my face dries, it does not feel dried out. I have not tried the soap for sensitive skin but this is great for when my skin has been irritated by too much sun. I love Erno Laszlo products and have always felt that the soap is their best and affordable product that lasts a long time. This soap is a winner on it’s own, or combined by alternating with a more exfoliating soap like the Sea Mud!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite beauty product! I’m obsessed with Laszlo products. This soap is amazing. I use this cleansing bar as part of my double cleanse with the Laszlo White Marble cleansing oil. I wet my face and massage the bar directly on my face. They have a certain procedure to follow on the instructions which I love and strictly follow. My face feels amazingly clean and soft afterward. This bar smells SO good, too. I love the box it comes in - I keep this bar in my cabinet with my other products, and this makes it easy and mess-free to do that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Soap I love this soap used together with my Phelityl cleansing oil for a wonderful spa-like cleansing experience. I used the Sea Mud soap before when my skin was a normal/combination for about 20 years and I loved it also. My skin is now a little drier so I switched to the Phelityl bar. I love it just as well. I do miss my Sea Mud but the Phelityl is better for me now. I love everything Lazlo and my skin shows it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I’m obsessed with Laszlo products. Yes, they’re expensive, but that’s because they actually work. I use this cleansing bar as part f my double cleanse with the Laszlo White Marble cleansing oil. My face feels amazingly clean and soft afterward. This bar smells SO good, too. Yes, it’s $38 for a small(ish) bar of soap - but it’s for your face, not your body, so it lasts. I love the box it comes in - I keep this bar in my cabinet with my other products, and this makes it easy and mess-free to do that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phelityl Soap or Just Water For over 20 years, other soap does not touch my face. The Phelityl soap with the oil makes my skin clean and soft. I give the combo as gifts and now my mom, sister and niece are all happy customers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Best cleansing bar I have ever used! Okay, so I never thought a cleansing bar could make such an impact on my skin but this bar is amazing! I used to use a facial cleansing bar from another brand, thinking it was doing good things for my skin. I then used this cleansing bar I got as a sample and thought it would be about the same. NOPE! It immediately made my skin feel refreshed, cleaner, and SO much softer! It has made a world of difference in the softness of my facial skin and is the only cleansing bar I will use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive Product! I used the Erno Laszlo Hydrate & Nourish Phelityl Cleansing Bar after removing my makeup with a wipe. I massaged the wet bar into my face, then used my fingertips to do the same. A quick rinse and suddenly my skin felt much smoother, supple, and soft. Luxurious. I was immediately impressed. After using the bar for a week I'm even more impressed. The best part is that this bar is going to last me quite awhile! I love that it comes with its own cute little box as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I love the soap, but had to switch to the bar soap since I could not find the cleanser in a tube on the web site that I have used for years. But the bar makes my skin feel "squeaky" clean! I had to cut the bar in half so I have some in two showers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Results It was recommended that I use this bar along with the Sea Mud Cleansing bar to control extreme oiliness. That was 33 years ago, I still use both bars,not at the same time, just recently added the Firmarine Bar to minimize some aging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Results! I used this soap for 20 years, then thought I'd try something new. I went back almost immediately. My skin feels healthy and supple when I use the Active Phelityl Soap plus Phelityl Oil. I'll never change again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LUXURIOUS CLEANSING BAR Used with the Phelityl Pre-Cleansing oil this is the best treatment for my skin. I splash water to rinse at least 20 times after cleansing. It feels cleansed, refreshed, smooth and hydrated. I do this morning and early in the evening. It helps me relax. It wakes up my skin after a long hard day. Other cleansers strip my skin and make it feel tight. I follow with a serum and a moisturizer. It’s the true secret to my skincare routine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product Let me start of by saying wow, I have never ever used a cleansing bar like this. My skin has become so smooth and soft feeling. I love the feeling after using this cleansing bar, before using my skin wasn’t feeling cleansed at all. Since I have started using I feel do cleanse and refreshed after using this I highly recommend that you use to feel the refresh!! I will keep on using it’s great compared to other bars

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have one It is my 3rd time to buy the cleansing bar. I and my sister love this bar so much. We buy it every year. We both have very very dry skin and this bar do great job. It don’t dry your skin after you use. We also use it as bath soap. It is perfect for us. And we miss the large 50g bar so much, I don’t know why EL isn’t selling it any more. We used to buy 50g one! Please let it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than I expected! I haven't used a facial bar in years, I've gotten used to using facial wash. I was skeptical that a bar could really cleanse my face as well as my other washes. I was pleasantly surprised at how clean my face felt after using this bar. I wasn't left feeling dry or tight, which used to be an issue in the past. It's become part of my daily routine now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My beauty hero! I love the way it makes my skin feel. Its super nourishing and leaves my skin feeling and looking hydrated. I use it every night to get rid of the impurities in my skin and I have noticed a huge difference in the acne around my hairline. It also comes in a super cute soap box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good cleansing product I purchased the travel size of the active phelityl soap. It cleanses well, without drying. Pleasant smell. If you keep it dry, it should last long. I will probably purchase the regular size the next time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Phelityl Cleansing Bar I have been using EL since 1970 - I like the product - however I do not like EL cutting the size of the bar - the consumer is not fooled. Please bring back the original size of the bar or CUT the price.

I am 59 years old with fairly dry skin. I don't know which bar to get? Can you please advise me?

Asked by: Nena
I am a bit older than you and also have dry skin. I alternate soaps depending on the season-as it gets warmer, I use the phelityl bar, preceeded by the pre-cleansing oil.

Is this more of a travel size bar?   I can’t seem to find the travel size anymore.

Asked by: Byrdie from Nantucket
It’s not as small as the old travel size but not as lg as the old regular size used to be. It is perfect for travel but box not as good as it used to be.

Is this the same as the previous phelityl cleaning bar?   The size is considerable smaller and the price is the same.  Wondering if composition of bar is different to require a reduction in size and no reduction in price 

Asked by: baba
It is the same bar just smaller!

So the current recommendation is to use warm water? It used to be hot water splashes for rinsing. Also, should I stick with the phelityl soap (I'm 63 years old), or should I be switching to something else?

Asked by: Carmella
I have been using phelityl soap since I turned 30. I was a cabin attendant and my roommates Dermatologist recommendated it. I have been hooked ever since. I have normal to slightly oily skin. I am still using exactly the same products. I use the phelityl oil to remove make up at night followed by warm water and phelityl soap...then light controlling lotion and day lotion.... the same routine day and night. People always say I look 10 years younger than I am. I love it!
