Buffing Bar

Microcrystal Exfoliant

  • for body
  • net wt 4 oz (2)
  • fragrance free

Made for areas of the body that would benefit from weekly moderate-to-intense physical exfoliation, including those with keratosis pilaris (“KP”), stubborn ingrown hairs, and rough, bumpy texture. Or you can enjoy the Buffing Bar for no specific reason—like a happy bear rubbing its back against a tree. Whatever the reason, dead skin and excess keratin are thoroughly sloughed away, releasing trapped hairs and revealing the soft, newer skin below after each use. This item pairs with our Soap Home.

  1. keratosis pilaris—bumps on back of arms, thighs, and hips
  2. rough elbows, knees, and heels
  3. areas prone to ingrown hair
  4. buffing away stubborn waterproof sunscreen
  5. prepping skin for sunless tan products
  6. strawberry skin—discoloration of hair follicles, especially on legs

Not Good For

  1. sensitive skin
  2. sunburned skin
  3. irritated skin
  4. active breakouts
  5. using in place of cleanser

You control the power—use firmer pressure on rough spots like heels and elbows, but be gentle on other areas of the body. Rinse, pat dry, and follow with a gentle moisturizer like Carea Cream.

Use weekly, or as often as needed.

      Verified Purchase

      Great for Ingrown hairs when used consistently I was looking for something to help with ingrown hairs and using this consistently has helped so much. I am pretty skeptical because there are so many products claiming to help with ingrowns out there but this really did the trick when used regularly. Also, it is a good price for two because the bars last a long time -- you only need to use it a few times a week and not for long at all so it lasts much longer than a bar of soap. My only suggestion is to not use it too much or scrub hard/for too long -- which is tempting because it is fun and effective. I also love that it is blue which is just fun!

      can't live without the bar! Love the bar. Can't live without the bar. In conjunction with the cream, the bar has changed the skin on my back/shoulders entirely (and quickly). No more bumps, uneven skin tone, acne from sweaty workout clothes - all gone and clear and smooth. Also - it helps get body sunscreen off after outdoor workouts, plus it's the only thing that really gets deodorant residue totally off my armpits - just don't press so hard. Other pro tip - use the bar, smoothing solution, and cream on your feet at night - game changer. also I love that it's fragrance free. I'm a customer for life.

      Best product I've ever tried for my skin Hands down the only product I've ever used that helps with my uneven skin. I struggle with skin picking, especially on my arms, and this bar leaves my skin so clean and clear that there isn't anything left to pick at. It solved a problem I've been self conscious about for most of my life and I can't say enough great things. Beyond that, the bar lasts much longer than I expected and much longer than it's competitors. Solves a problem and saves me money, can't ask for anything else.

      MY KP IS GONE! When I say I have NEVER used a product that worked this fast and this good, please believe me! I have struggled with KP (keratosis pilaris/strawberry skin/chicken skin) for the majority of my life. It left me feeling insecure, ugly, and ashamed that I couldn’t figure out how to make it go away. I have used every type of scrub, every type of soap, every type of lotion/cream and chemical peel. NOTHING worked and in some cases my KP got worse or my skin became raw and scarred from over exfoliating (even though the bumps were still there!) I never wore dresses, I never wore shorts and swimming was out of the question. I literally felt trapped in my own skin! Then one day I did a google search for microcrystal exfoliation (I’ve looked before so I wasn’t expecting much) and this little blue bar in paper wrapping popped up in the search results. GAME CHANGER! After one use I noticed a SIGNIFICANT reduction in my KP. After 1 week my KP was COMPLETELY GONE on my legs! I literally cried! Soft Services you have a forever customer in me. You changed my life and gave me my confidence and my skin back. Thank you so much. I feel beautiful for the first time in a long time.

      It actually works! KP folks rejoice. This exfoliating soap bar has done wonders for my longstanding KP on my arms. I brought it with me when I went back to Hawaii to visit family. Since my KP has been one of my insecurities, I was hoping the soap would help. I surely was not disappointed. Although it didn’t get rid of my KP altogether, it greatly reduced the roughness and blurred the look of it. It’s also great that my partner who’s skin is very sensitive and easily reactive to skincare has been using it as well with no problems. We’re actually on our second bar right now and will be needing to repurchase soon.
      I would recommend this product to: Anybody who has rough skin or like to exfoliate their body.

      Verified Purchase

      fixed something i thought would never be fixed I've had rough bumps on the underside of my butt, where the seam of granny panties would fall, for years.... I mean years. I assumed it's just been from wearing incredibly tight jeans in 2010s and sleeping in granny panties. I've tried other exfoliants (chemical + pumice stones) to no avail - I had kind of gotten to the point that I assumed it was never going to go away, which was really sad because having bumps on your butt sucks. Buffing Bar started working within the week. Literally can't believe it. the bumps aren't completely gone but they are DRAMATICALLY reduced and I'm so impressed. based on this performance, I can't wait to try other products in this line.
      I would recommend this product to: Anyone with bumps on the backs of their elbows, roughness anywhere else, and anyone who finds that a physical exfoliant like a pumice stone is too rough on some areas of their body. (Buffing bar is really nice on chest)

      KP obliterated By the time I got halfway through the bar, my skin/KP was smoother and clearer than ever. I was so impressed that I had to give the second bar to my cousin who was experiencing bad KP post pregnancy. I couldn't wait to hear her review and she said that even after one use her KP was less red!

      Bump obliteration - good juju I love this bar - it obliterated ass bumps from wearing acne pin jeans for 5 yrs / sitting at a desk. So much more effective than a gel scrub/ other bars - crystals are super fine and you can really ‘grind’. I use it at least 3x a week bc it has the unexpected invigorating sensation of those little Korean scrub cloths. It’s like dry brushing on crack - if I’m mad or don’t exercise that day it really gets the endorphins moving without being irritating.
      I would recommend this product to: Anyone who has KP or any bump issues. Anyone into dry brushing / kspas

      Fantastic product and feels great to use I love the results, I love the way it feels to use - scratches a nice itch but isn't so harsh as to break the skin or irritate my skin. Especially helpful with ingrown hairs and sloughing off dead skin, but not drying and gets a nice lather going. I love this product. I'm still using the first bar I ordered in December and it's got probably another two months left in it. I use it about 3x a week.

      Pretty Great, but Not Long-Lasting The buffing bar is pretty great - I would give this product 3.5 stars if I could. This is due to the fact that for $28 plus $4 shipping, you are getting two bars (and its a good thing they come in a pack of two) that only last around less than a month each. I really do like the bar, however I went to go re-purchase today, and I truly don't think I can justify spending the money on two bars of soap.

      smooth arms at last I am not a review writer, but searching for products to treat my kp was so frustrating that I have to share my experience with the buffing bar! It is pretty much the only thing that's ever worked for me. My arms have never been this smooth and it makes me so happy to not have little bumps all over them. I complement the buffing bar with Paula's Choice AHA in the morning and BHA at night. I love all three products, though my arms are still fairly red.

      Love it To start the packaging is incredible. Everything feels sturdy but not like it's going to take 1000 years to decompose. Good job Annie!!! The buffing bar is great on my redness prone skin and I think the product lasts for a reasonable amount of time given the size. I also like that they come in a set of two, it feels less wasteful.

      Refining the field If you’ve used a pale pink exfoliating soap bar and thought, “I like this, but it could go harder, and I’d really prefer it not to go flaccid before it’s even half-used,” stop thinking and start clicking “add to cart.” It makes me so smooth that I’m almost mad? But not, because I’m extremely happy with it. I’ve also spent my share of time with things like the Salux cloth, which I love but think may secretly be a ploy to see how willing I am to use a dish scrubber on my body just because the internet recommended it. I haven’t bothered with dry brushing but suspect the sentiment would be similar.

      ***** Great product. I'm particularly prone to ingrown hairs on the back of calves. I've tried a bunch of scrubs and tools to try and keep that area exfoliated--they either don't work at all or are too harsh on my skin. The buffing is perfect because you can control the amount of pressure you use. It's also less messy than sticky sugar scrubs and has a nice mild scent. The blue color is kinda intense but I think it looks cool. Also super handy to help with flaky sunburned skin.

      Clean & Soft I truly appreciate this bar soap. It leaves my skin feeling very clean & soft. The keratosis on my upper arms has improved, but is not gone completely. However, I just started using the soap three weeks ago, so things could continue to improve with further use. The only reason I gave this soap 4 stars instead of 5: the price. I understand why it is most likely pricey, but it is still an fairly expensive price tag for soap. Regardless, I am pleased with this product (definitely the best soap I've ever used), & I am very grateful to have found it.

      Therapy in the shower The micro crystals feel amazing on the skin. I use it every other day; already finished the two bars which took me 2 months. Ordered another set. I didn’t really have any serious skin issues, except hyperpigmentation on certain areas and ingrown hair. I noticed the difference on my back and tush; much more even skin tone and oh so soft! Also, no more ingrown hair anywhere on my body if I use this regularly. These buffing bars feel so therapeutic in the shower. It’s become a ritual! It’s fragrance-free but I am in love with the smell! Will reorder over and over.

      I'm so goddamn sick... I'm so goddamn sick of people putting poppyseeds in soap and calling it "exfoliating." THIS is an exfoliating soap. I have Those Bumps on my arms, sometimes on my legs from shaving, and I also have a mysterious eczema-esque rash on my hips that I've had for years. This bar soap has solved all of that. It's my favorite part of my shower routine. On top of that, it's this stunning blue color and comes in the most beautiful packaging. 10/10, cannot recommend enough.
      I would recommend this product to: Literally anyone.

      No complaints here ;) Definitely prefer this over a wet scrub, it's less messy. Just the right amount of grit to buff away without feelings like you're rubbing yourself raw. The bar doesn't disintegrate which is great because even after 2 months of use 2-3 times a week, I still haven't gone through the first bar! I feel like it really has helped improve the KP on my upper arms/ shoulders
      I would recommend this product to: anyone with skin!

      TY, humanoid riding a dolphin I’m super happy with these bars! I’ve always had pretty rough feet– calluses on my heels and on the outer edges of my feet closer to my toes. The Baby Foot approach freaks me out, so I was really excited to see this product when it came out, and I’m happy to say it’s helping! I use it a few times a week, and though the roughness isn’t entirely gone, it’s definitely improved. I also had KP on my bum, and that’s completely gone– nice and smooth, now. I love that these products are formulated and packaged with environmental responsibility in mind, and they’re also beautiful. I’ll definitely be keeping these stocked!
      I would recommend this product to: Anyone with rough skin and/or KP, who wants to be able to control how aggressively they’re exfoliating

      an easy solution for better skin I'm so thrilled with the Buffing Bar. In the two short weeks I've been using it, there's been a significant improvement on my elbows, which have always been dry, rough and sometimes painful. I'm not a very "disciplined" person when it comes to skincare, but the Buffing Bar is a fast and easy way to incorporate a great product into my routine that's truly helping my skin. Can't recommend this enough.
      I would recommend this product to: Anyone looking for an easy solution to dry/patchy skin and a simple addition to their daily routine.

      Boyfriend approved! My boyfriend had been suffering from really itchy skin (especially around his thighs) and we believed his body wash played a part. We went on a quest to find something that would agree with his body and would create a lather (just a preference he has). And the Soft Services Buffing Bar exceeded all hopes! He LOVES this product! I'm so glad we found it and thankful that his itching is a thing of the past. He also finds the application of the product (rubbing against his body) to feel so good. I hear literal good sighs from the shower haha!
      I would recommend this product to: Anyone looking for a body wash alternative.

      Better than every scrubby cloth! So good! I thought I was exfoliating well with the myriad scrubbing devices/cloths I've used (and truly, I've used them all), but one session with the Buffing Bar already got rid of layers of dead skin making me much smoother/softer/closer to dolphin skin status. Gentle enough to use on body skin, still effective on rough feet. Will be happily repurchasing when it runs out.
      I would recommend this product to: Anyone except those with *very* sensitive/abraded skin.

      Amazed after two uses, can’t wait for full results! I have KP and tried many types of exfoliating bars since I was a little girl and they all did the same thing which wasn’t really much and were big and chunky exfoliating molecules. This is one of the first bars that I felt like I noticed a difference in my the texture and appearance of my skin with KP. After the second use my arms are I’d say 90% smooth to touch which is incredible for me! I wish I took before and after pictures, I didn’t think I’d noticed this much of a difference!
      I would recommend this product to: Anyone experience KP for sure, or anyone who wants smooth soft skin

      First Time Product Reviewer I’ve never once left a product review in my life. And as someone who works in beauty, I’ve had a fair amount of products come through my door. That being said, I NEEDED to reach out and tell you how great the Buffing Bar is. I’ve tried every exfoliation under the sun to manage ingrown hairs, KP on my arms, and strawberry skin legs. I truly just thought these would all be forever sorts of things and that actual body exfoliation was kind of a myth. But then I saw the Buffing Bar and had to order it…. I finished the last of my exfoliator in plastic packaging (that I now realize really didn’t do too much) and started using this last week. I was a sucker for the packaging, and the color and figured it couldn’t hurt to try. Today I reached down to my leg and was SHOCKED when I realized how smooth it was. No more bumps, no strawberry skin. Immediately texted all of my girlfriends to buy it. Thank you for creating this product!! I’m so excited to try out everything else in your line, and can’t wait to see what else you bring to the table in the future.
      I would recommend this product to: Anyone/ everyone looking for soft skin! Especially if you have KP!

      Fucking Yes I’ve used this bar three times now, and each and every single time my skin is like “thank you for loving me and making me soft”. You’ve never experienced an exfoliate or like this. PLEASE TRY THIS BAR!!!!!!
      I would recommend this product to: People who need an exfoliant that they can control. Anyone who’s skin needs some extra loving pre shave post shave. Just overall softer

      If you have body acne, this definitely gets it to go away ASAP. After my first 3 uses I started seeing a big change in my back with my back acne and even in other parts of my body. I was using it everyday, but my friend recommended that I use it 2 times a week. *This person tested the samples for three weeks pre-launch. Soft Services products were provided as compensation for their honest review.
      I would recommend this product to: Anybody who has severe body acne.
