Came back for more!

I am just now buying my second bar of renew, it lasts so long, and I love it! I've been using it for close to a year and my oily yet dry skin loves it, I feel clean, but not squeaky after i use it

This is what we love to hear, Kelly! So happy to hear your skin loves it and that it lasts you so long.

Good, but..

Love it, but it smells terrible

Was this helpful?


So sorry, Marley. We found that most consumers prefer to have a non-scented face wash, and decided to have no added fragrances as that can cause irritation to skin. The scent of the bar is the scent of the ingredients itself.

Regardless, I am so sorry that you are disappointed in the scent and will definitely share your thoughts with the team. Thank you!

Love it!

I’ve been using this face wash for over a year because it does wonders for my sensitive skin! I wanted to try out a different cleanser than my tried and true due to environmental reasons (not performance issues) and was pleasantly surprised this worked SIGNIFICANTLY better than my usual product. The only downside is that I travel frequently for work and if you use the bar and then put it in the travel pouch, it loses its structural integrity a bit, so I’d suggest a different type of hard-sided container for travel purposes. That being said, I’d still choose this face wash bar over other products that I know work for me.

Gritty and horrible

I love the other HiBar products I’ve gotten so I wanted to give their facewash a try. It was so gritty and caused my skin to feel raw after using only once.

Was this helpful?


So sorry to hear that, Aviana! Renew is meant to be used as a 1-2 times per week exfoliant, but should not be at all abrasive. It should be gentle and not cause irritation. When washing your face, we recommend working up product in your hands first, and gently rubbing the product onto your skin using your hands rather than rubbing the bar directly on your face to prevent irritation. We would love to send you a replacement of a different face wash that does not contain any exfoliants if you'd prefer that. Please feel free to respond to this directly!

  • Q: How were these bars formulated? 

    In developing these natural skin care products, we took a high end gentle amino acid-based face wash formula meant for a bottle, meant to be a liquid, and worked with it for over a year to make it a solid bar.

  • Q: Do your face wash bars contain fragrance? 

    No, all 3 facial bars are fragrance-free. Based on our studies we discovered that most users did not want a fragrance in their face washes.

  • Q: What is the pH level of your face wash?

    The pH is between 4.5 and 5.5, matching your skin's pH level.

  • Q: Can I use Renew as a daily face wash?

    Renew is a gentle exfoliating skin care face wash. It is recommended to be used a few times a week, just as you would any exfoliating face wash.

  • Q: Is ALL HiBAR packaging recyclable?

    Yes. In fact it's compostable as well. And we use plant-based inks. Our shipping materials are also either compostable, recyclable or biodegradable, including any packing tape or product protection. If it arrived in plastic, it did not come from us!

  • Q: Is HiBAR compostable?

    Our plastic free deodorant container is made from cardboard and is curbside compostable. They do compost and can be done at home, just like regular compost. But, if you are using the compost dirt to grow food, it’s probably best to use compost material like food scraps and other food grade, food by product material. You can compost our packaging to turn it back to the earth and use it as a filler somewhere.
