Thann Black Rice Grain Soap and Consonant Organic Foaming Face Wash: Not Your Average Soaps!

Everything about this Thann soap ($9) is different: it's black (I mean, darker than Lisamarie's heart), it contains black rice grain and charcoal; and the shape is elongated to fit better in your hand. This soap can be used on your face and body: the rice grain and charcoal provide a light exfoliation which is good if your skin is on the oily side, but it's still gentle so that your skin won't feel dry. Don't expect this soap to feel like an ordinary scrub, it's still smooth like me a soap. To get more info, check Thann's website.

This organic foaming face wash from Consonant ($18) was very intriguing to me. Foam? How could foam clean anything? This liquid soap becomes a light fragrance-free foam and gently cleanses your face. My skin is very sensitive and I can tell you this is definitely as gentle as it gets. It contains tea tree oil as well grapeseed oil to nourish your skin, so your skin feels clean but not "tight". I'm not sure this was meant for very oily skin, because while I loved this face wash, I don't think it helped control the shine over time.

You can test Consonant organic line for yourself with this Discovery Kit for only $10, available on their website. To find where you can purchase Consonant products, check here.


  1. I know LUSH's charcoal soap leaves a black residue.. same thing with Thann's?

  2. No, no residue at all. But then, if your skin is pale maybe you'd notice some kind of me it looked like a normal soap.


  3. love love love thann soap :) best ever!
