Love. This. Stuff.
Purchased

I bought this once when I needed to get my order amount higher to get some free stuff. Omg, best $8 ever. I have since bought an additional one and another for a friend. I haven't had a breakout since I started using it on my face. I started using it on entire body since I started getting breakouts on my back. This cleared those RIGHT up. The soap has natural exfoliants so using a loofah isn't necessary. Be warned though, because the suds are brown, your shower might start looking ickier sooner. But it was always icky, you just didn't notice. Buy this soap; clean your tub more often.

OBSESSED
Purchased

I love this soap. When I say that it changed my life, it really changed my life. I was struggling with adult on-set acne on my lower jawline that was constantly inflamed and painful. I purchased this with some Birchbox points, and I am floored at how amazing this works. I have had maybe one small breakout since using this daily, and that was due to hormone fluctuations! Keeps my skin so soft and smooth, I really cannot say enough about this and plan on buying it for Christmas for all of my family members.

Best soap EVER!
Purchased

I bought this because it sounded interesting and I needed a few more dollars in my cart in order to get free samples. Best decision! I haven't used bar soap since I was a kid, you know before body washes and liquid soap became the thing. Don't be put off by the brown color it produces when you start lathering up. Anyways, it's incredible! I just started using it about a week ago, I have already noticed a change in my skin. It looks healthier and my skin tone seems to be improving. It makes my face feel very clean. I am absolutely glowing!

Great product, great price
Purchased

I love this soap. Like many other reviewers, I got it to score free shipping on my order and am so glad I did. The soap has helped clear my skin (not perfect, but better) and leaves it feeling clean and oil-free, but not overly dry.

I love it!
Purchased

I have very oily t zone and dry cheeks, normally different face washes or soaps tends to either dry out my skin or leave a residue, no balance, but this soap completely balanced my skin after a couple uses, no drying and no residue, my skin felt clean and actually stayed oil free longer than usual. I'm sold and will definitely be repurchasing, thanks for carrying this product!

Love!!
Purchased

Before my breakouts were terrible (being the fact I always had good skin) but this year I been through a lot of stress and in school was tough. So I went back to the original thing my mom always recommended, black soap. Bought this and seen results less than a week! My face is clearing up like clockwork by using this morning and night. To save more soap I split it into quadrants of four so I'm still using my first piece. My acne is almost clear, my complexion is becoming luminous again and overall these large pores has tighten creating elasticity (softness). The biggest thing with acne on ppl is the cause of large pores, having large pores can cause extreme breakouts. With this soap is fixes those unwanted large pores making them extremely tight and cleanses your pores to avoid future breakouts. I don't use any exfoliating brush only my bare hands when applying. I use this black soap with Dr.Brandts pores no more cleanser (day and night) and follow up with Murad vitamin c day moisture and at night uses Murad vitamin c night moisture. This concoction is amazing!!

Looks are decieveing
Purchased

I bought this soap to get my shopping cart up enough to get a promo and I am very surprised. The name of the soap and the color of the soap are very deceiving. I have a lot of trouble with acne on my upper back and shoulders and this has really helped it out a lot. It makes my skin feel soft and has really reduced my breakouts. It is rough, so not advised for those with sensitive skin. Will be a loyal customer now.
