It's just ok
Purchased

I was expecting perfection (my fault!) when I purchased this soap. It does clean, but my face actually broke out after I started using it. Not something I would buy again, but glad I tried it.

Drying
Purchased

It's pretty drying. I have to wear a moisturizing toner and a moisturizer after washing my face with it. For a while it kept my combination-oily skin that's prone to breakouts pretty clear, but lately I've been breaking out again. I'm starting to alternate between a few face washes, two of which are creamy, nondrying washes, so maybe that will balance it out. My skin is pretty sensitive, and I can't use this every day anymore. The bar lasts a while, though. I bought it about 5 months ago and I'm about halfway through the bar, so that's a plus.

Good but messy..
Purchased

My face felt fabulous after trying this soap. The biggest and only complaint that i have is that when i left the bar of soap in my shower it bled and made my shower look iffy.

Slightly disappointed
Purchased

I was looking forward to trying this, due to the price and high ratings. It was fine, but I started breaking out after a few days. I think my skin is just too sensitive for a soap, so I will stick with my old routine of kiehls products.

This soap makes my skin feel good but it's messy and makes my shower walls brown and gross. I have to put it in a case.

I felt pretty clean, but nothing extraordinary happened
Purchased

I actually liked the slight roughness of this soap, but I'm not sure if it was actually beneficial to my skin, but I appreciate it's simplicity and foregoing of harmful additives.

Not effective
Purchased

I ordered this soap because I read that it was great for oily and acne-prone skin, but I've used it for months without seeing much of a result. On the other hand, my Dead Sea mud soaps have been amazingly effective, so I'm sticking to that instead.

Ok
Purchased

The soap itself was alright. It didn't smell much like anything, but it was great for exfoliating. I wouldn't say that it "battled blemishes".

Great daily mask
Purchased

I like using this product as a daily mask. It leaves skin soft and smooth, and it helps prevent breakouts and blemishes. I cut my bar into about 6 chunks, which I would recommend doing!
