HILARY SAYS REVIEW:
This is cleansing bar is one of Urban Rx bestsellers. Retailing at $24 for 100g, it claims to improve the appearance of uneven skin tone and dark marks. It has beneficial ingredients in it that can back these claims like Azelaic Acid (mild exfoliant and great for uneven skin tone – although I doubt that the level at which it is in this product will be effective), Kojic Acid (skin lightening agent for uneven skin tone), Niacinamide (jack of all trades ingredient – great for uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, fine lines/wrinkles and has anti-inflammatory properties), Alpha Arbutin (skin lightening agent for uneven skin tone), Licorice Extract (skin lightening agent) and Black Tea Extract (antioxidant rich).
To get the best out of this cleansing bar, you should leave it on for about 15 minutes before washing off. Great product!
