Detox in the Shower with Pearl +

Sometimes your skin needs…charcoal?  That’s the philosophy of Studio J, a small Portland-based company that makes Pearl +, a detoxing luxury soap filled with charcoal powder and crushed pearls.

Putting a modern twist on a traditional Asian beauty treatment, founder Janet Jay handcrafts 100% natural soap bars that smooth skin with pearl (a 2,000-year-old Chinese practice), bring out impurities with charcoal, and leave you smelling clean with a blend of essential oils.

I stumbled upon the company when I recently stayed at The Ace hotel in Portland and have been using the soap religiously since.  Though charcoal might sound harsh, my sensitive skin has felt much softer and stayed irritation-free.  Combine this with a pre-shower dry brushing routine and your skin will be in great shape for summer!
