It doesn't dry out my skin, and I do feel that it helps with the oily/combination skin. I like that it's not scented (I have sensitive skin). But It did nothing for my acne..

ehhh

am obsessed with this product! I recommend it to everyone who will listen. The bar gets a better lather than the pump but the whole product line is great

Nothing Special for my skin
Purchased

I typically have dry skin around my cheeks and I'm prone to breakouts on my chin and forehead. I started using this soap hoping it would diminish my number of breakouts. I gave it a good few weeks but didn't see any change. Be careful when applying straight to your face because there are rough particles in the soap that can hurt you. Also, this stuff didn't stink to me but at the same time it didn't smell wonderful. I wouldn't recommend.

Jury still out
Purchased

I got this product because I was intrigued by all the reviews on how good it was for the skin, etc. I agree the smell is not the best, but it reminds me of a campfire, etc. So it's at least tolerable, and for me the smells gone once I toweled off. The downside for me is how rough the soup is. I like exfoliates, but its hard to even lather up with your hands because of the texture. I'm still going to try it out and see how it goes. So far I'm not unhappy with it, but I'm still on the fence as to whether its helping my skin or not.

I think I like it..
Purchased

I've been using this product for a few weeks and it's not terrible. When washing with it my skin feels soft, but after rinsing my skin feels super dry. I moisturize with cocoa butter to help.

I do, however, think it helps with my skin's appearance even though it is super drying. I will keep using it to really determine if it's worth the price.

Like it don't love it!
Purchased

Nice soap that does not dissolve quickly in the shower. IT does tend to leave black marks on towels and tub is not rinsed immediately. Overall feels great on my skin!

Great sticking stuffer
Purchased

Got this as a stocking stuffer for my cousin for Christmas. She really loved it, and I have only heard good things since. I personally like the CO Bigelow soaps more, but this went over well with my very hard to please, 21 year old cousin!

Loving it
Purchased

I just started using the soap and it is working wonders. My skin feels soft and nourished. The smell isn't that great but for my skin anything. The nice part is the smell doesn't linger.

I really like it!
Purchased

I really, really enjoy this soap. I use it just as the directions suggest and leave it on my face for 5 minutes as a mask. I use it in the evenings before bed and my face feels smooth, fresh, and clean. I haven't had any major breakouts since using this product and my skin tone seems to be more even. I also enjoy the scent and think it's a great value for the large bar that you get.

Finally!
Purchased

Finally a soap that clears my skin and doesn't dry it out! I was nervous to try this produce because some of the reviews said that the soap dried out the skin. It is messy and I will only use it in the shower.
