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.

Highly recommend !
Purchased

I got this as a gift for my girlfriend and she loved it! She liked how there wasn't any added ingredients so it has a very earthy smell. It worked really well to clean too. She said it worked better as a mask than a soap. It isn't too abrasive but you can feel it working away at the dead skin.

This is everything!

I got this as a gift off of my wishlist for Christmas with a bunch of other stuff and this is by far my favorite! I feel like a goddess with baby soft skin. It feels so nice exfoliating my skin and it makes my face feel like I'm ten years younger so clean and tighten. It is so worth the $8.

Smells funky and leaves residue
Purchased

Maybe this product shouldn't be used on women with fair skin. It made me look like I have so many blackheads and it smells just... funky. Not terrible, but just strange and a little gross. May leave residue on white sinks too.

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!
