I was hoping to replace a quite expensive bar soap with this activated charcoal soap, but so far, not so good.
I've only been using this soap for a week, but I've already started having breakouts! I have combination skin with an oily T-zone, and by mid-afternoon, I'm shiny- something that didn't happen with my previous cleanser.
The smell also is a deterrent. It's very mildly scented, but what there is to smell, smells like old urine. It's only during application that you can smell anything.
Pro's to this soap: Great lather, great price and size, skin does feel clean after washing.
Con's: not effective (for me), smell
