Review: Rena Levi Vanishing Act Soap and Amazing Scrub

I must be getting a reputation as someone interested in natural acne solutions, because a representative from the Rena Levi company contacted me about reviewing their products.

In this post, I’m going to tell you about my experience with the Rena Levi Vanishing Act soap and Amazing Scrub. I received samples for free to try out:

According to the product information I received, the Vanishing Act soap is supposed to be much more than soap. Aside from cleansing, it also tones, exfoliates balances, and renews. This makes it very attractive to people like me who don’t want a five-step skin care ritual. I wash and moisturize — that’s it!

I used the soap for about one month and the scrub once during that time (since you’re supposed to use it only once a month), and here are the results I got.

The Good

  • The soap has a natural, earthy scent. It’s not artificially perfumed, which is a big plus to me since I’m sensitive to perfumes. However, if you like your skincare products to smell “pretty,” then this soap might smell too natural for you (if there’s such a thing, LOL!).
  • The soap didn’t dry out my skin. I’m usually leery of using soaps, because I learned many years ago that soaps are too harsh for facial skin. However, I found this soap to be quite gentle. I don’t have sensitive skin, but products that are too harsh can make my cheeks dry. This one didn’t.
  • The soap lasts long. Confession: I don’t have a proper soap dish (reason being I don’t use soaps on either my face or body, so no soap dish). But despite that, the soap didn’t melt fast. I didn’t finish the small sample soap during the entire four weeks of trying it.

The Bad

  • The scrub is pretty powerful stuff! It felt like a thousand tiny pieces of glass on my skin. Needless to say, I tried to wash it off immediately. It felt like I would cut my skin if I rubbed or splashed my skin. I had to rinse it off very carefully. I’m not sure if this means the scrub is really effective, but I wonder if others who use it feel the same way?
  • The soap and scrub didn’t control my acne. Three weeks after I started using the Vanishing Act soap and Amazing Scrub, my chin started breaking out. I developed deep, cystic acne, which didn’t progress when I stopped using the soap 🙁
  • The products are quite expensive compared to other soaps and scrubs, and they may not be readily available depending on where you live.

The Bottom Line

Rena Levi Vanishing Act soap and Amazing Scrub provide cleansing and exfoliating without AHAs, retinols or acids. The company has enough testimonials to make me believe their products do work for some. However, as with any skincare product, they don’t work for everyone’s skin.

    Thanks for reviewing this product. I have been using Rena Levi Skincare’s products for years now and was wanting to find some reviews on product I hadn’t tried yet. I came across this blog post while doing the search.

    I have used the vanishing act soap as well as the scrub and agree it does feel at first very rough, but having dealt with acne and microderm abrasions it was nothing close in regards to roughness as that.

    When you get past the initial surprise in regards to the texture it is really a wonderful product and it does it’s job better than any other scrub I have tried on the market (and no it won’t cut you, lol). It gets all of those dead layers of skin off leaving you with bright, clear, and clean looking skin after a few weeks of use.

    These were the first products I tried and I am now a loyal Rena Levi Skincare client because of how great they are.
