The Skin-Clearing Wonder Bar from Japan

deitanseki-soapPeople with oily, acne-prone skin, here's a bar of soap that may change your face-washing ways. Deitanseki Clay & Charcoal Facial Cleansing Bar ($14)  comes all the way from that country that brought us Hello Kitty, sushi and Nintendo -- Japan! Made with kaolin clay and carbon powder, these oil-sucking ingredients eliminate dirt, makeup and products from skin and pores.

Hold up -- carbon powder, you ask? If that sounds harsh and gritty, this soap isn't. Deitanseki lathers easily and gently cleanses, leaving skin feeling soft, clean and smooth. Unlike other products for oily skin that dry out skin (which is so annoying), this one doesn't.

So, if you're wiling to switch up your washing routine, give this bar a try. It's seriously good.
