"Kiehl's Ultra Facial Hydrating Concentrated Cleansing Bar"
From product name
WIMJ summary for cleansing

This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. It uses a combination of mild cleansing agents (arachidic acid, coconut acid, myristic acid, palmitic acid, sodium cocoyl glycinate, sodium cocoyl isethionate, stearic acid) and should be able to cleanse the skin gently. Still keep in mind that any cleansing can disrupt the skin barrier, and most people do not need to cleanse their skin more than once per day.
