Hail Mary for my cystic acne, avoid eyes

I had tried a lot of things, guys. I had noticed that my head and shoulders shampoo seemed to help during a postpartum hormonal flare, so I bought this soap. Love it, and one bar lasts forever, so consider that when balking at the price like I did originally. It has helped, but my one bit of advice is to not use near your eyes

Amazing!

My dermatologist recommended that I buy this and give a try since I’ve been struggling with random break outs. I was very skeptical about it since I constantly keep trying new things, and nothing ever works, but this product has actually been a life saver. I love it, and do not regret buying it. It’s the best purchase I’ve made toward my skin care. It was super easy to buy off the website, great price, and it shipped super fast! I use it every other day in place of my regular face wash. I’ve been using it for about a month now, and I have yet to deal with any stubborn/random breakouts. It’s helped my skin a lot, and I would highly recommend investing in one of these!

Vanicream Z-Bar

The best product that I have found since the ZNP Bar came off the market. Give it a chance twice a day and in a week you will notice the improvement.

Great for acne and dry skin!

I have been using this bar for a month now, and it has helped my seborrheic dermatitis condition so much. I have dry patches on my body, and this soap is the only thing that I have found to smooth out my skin and take itchiness away. It also seems to be clearing up my acne, which is also a plus! I definitely recommend applying a moisturizer after using the bar just because with frequent use, it can be kind of drying. But using every 3-4 days seems to help reduce this issue and keeps my skin in good condition. I use with the Vanicream Lite Lotion.

Works.

Although it was recommended as a body soap, I have cleared the acne on on my lower cheeks and chin after nothing worked. It took 6 weeks of daily use. And now, I feel my skin has cleared up for first time in 15 years.

So far, so good

I have terrible breakouts on my chest, neck and upper back. It looks like inflamed acne. Terrible for my self confidence. I am also 35—acne and forehead lines at the same time seem really unfair. This soap, along with noble formula soap were recommended to me because of their zinc content, as my dermatologist suspected that my condition wasn't acne, but instead a folliculitis caused by a fungus, much like what causes dandruff. I chose the vanicream over the noble because I have many, many botanical allergies, and the noble formula soap has some ingredients that I am not sure of. This soap is a little bit drying, but I have a pretty heavy moisturizing routine, as my skin is very dry anyway. It seems to be really helping. Actual pustules and lesions are all but gone. I have hyperpigmentation where they were, but I am hopeful that it will fade. I will update in a few weeks just to let people know if it continues to improve my skin''s condition or not.

Jury is still out

I had high hopes for this cleansing bar due to my facial seborrheic dermatitis that can be very inflamed, sensitive, with extreme flaking. I'm not sure this cleansing bar is helpful for this condition. My thought is there are better options available.

Great for sensitive skin

My husband has sensitive skin and is plagued by seborrheic dermatitis. This soap is non-irritating and has helped to calm his flare ups. Will continue to purchase.

Great!

I've been using this for the acne on my back and face, and there's been a lot of improvement! I like that this bar is non-irritating and doesn't dry out my skin. It has a "soapy" kind of smell, but other than that, no fragrance. It lathers up very nicely. There only downsides are it's quite small and it always seems to be out of stock.

Average

The cost is a lot for one small bar of soap. It’s not an exceptional product but it is nice to have it as one option for this particular topical medication. It dissolves very quickly so I opted to purchase a strong zinc shampoo, as a body cleanser substitute, at the doctor’s recommendation. This product is for my toddler so I can imagine a grown person would go through it in a few days. However, options are nice to have.

Only thing that has worked for me

I first used the original Vanicream bar. My skin looked fantastic, but I would still break out into these itchy hives (I assume due to a fungus or my rosacea). I read in an article to use something with zinc, so I purchased the Z Bar. I noticed a difference immediately. And I no longer have hives. I hope they never discontinue this bar! A lot of other zinc bars are loaded with pore clogging ingredients, but Vanicream keeps it pretty pure.

Was skeptical but worth it

I thought a soap couldn't help my dry skin, but it did. Healed cracks & eliminated acne, skin so smooth after use & feels soothed. Downside is it's pretty pricey per bar.

Does the job

I have Seborrheic Dermatitis which flares every few months. When it does, my normally somewhat oily skin becomes itchy and very flaky. This soap used once a day for a few weeks goes a long way towards curing the problem. Unlike other Pyrithione Zinc soaps that I have used, this does not dry out my skin.

Lifesaver!

I was struggling with extremely dry scalp issues and tried all kinds of shampoos, and this was the only soap to give me any relief. Ever since I started using it I haven’t had a single flake or any itching at all. It’s amazing!

WOW! Healed my Perioral Dermatitis

I am writing this in hopes I help someone else suffering from mystery Perioral Dermatitis on their skin. So this bar has saved my skin! All of a sudden, I developed some Perioral Dermatitis near my mouth. After switching to all new, gentle products, toothpastes,supplements, etc, and spending lots and lots of money, I decided to try this medicated bar from Vanicream. I had read online that zinc is helpful for Perioral Dermatitis and also clarifying as well ( oh yea I struggle with acne too, so that’s fun). After one day, my skin has improved 70%! The redness and inflammation have subsided and I must say my skin looks bright and radiant. Not red! I had already made an appointment with a dermatologist the morning after I received this so I definitely wanted to get her thoughts. She confirmed it was PD and gave me a topical antibiotic. And she said it is a must I continue with this bar to cleanse! However I think I’m going to hold off on the topical because of the amazing result I’ve had win this bar! I’m so incredibly happy and I do hope that someone else with PD tries this and finds it as healing as I have.

Best soap ever!

I have suffered from eczema ever since childhood and am always on the lookout for something that will heal my rashes or at least alleviate the symptoms. In the recent years, I've had troubles with flaky rashes on my scalp and eczema around my ears, on my neck and on my arms and hands. It was embarrassing and uncomfortable. I tried this soap and I was so happy to find that with daily use, my symptoms are relieved. My skin feels so comfortable. I was also pleasantly surprised that it helps manage my acne! It came with two bars so I gave one to my Aunt who has psoriasis. Her symptoms improved dramatically as well. I hope I'll never have to be without this soap. Thank you, LovelySkin!

Searched for this for along time

This soap was recommended to me by my Curology dermatologist. It is absolutely fantastic! I don't get that weird dry soapy layer after. Instead, my skin feels soft, smooth and for once clean without clogged pores. The bumps on my arms and back went away almost immediately. I would recommend this in a heart beat!

Vanicream Z-Bar helps with my acne

My dermatologist recommend this soap to help my acne issues. My pharmacist could not order it, so I found it on LovelySkin at a great price and can purchase only what I need. I only use it at night. It tends to overdry my face if I use it twice a day. It has helped with my acne issues and I will keep using it as long as I need it and as long as LovelySkin continues to carry it.
