Works Great

The only drawback on this soap is that you cannot leave it in the shower unless you have a soap cover. It will drip brown soap all down your tub. The upside is that your skin feels clean and over time brighter as in healthier. I probably will not buy it again because it was a tad too expensive and it didnt last long.

Alright product
Purchased

I had never tried African black soap before and was excited to try it. My roommate gets the type from the local store and hates that it stains her washcloths. I did not have that problem with this product. It seemed to work pretty well. I would've prepared a better scent but it was fun to try regardless.

Clean and refreshing
Purchased

I was hesitant about this soap but heard wonderful things about it so gave it a try. It leaves your face feeling very clean but not dry.

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.

Its okay.
Purchased

I loved this product for my body, but it made my face break out more. It doesn't smell very lovely, but it works all over the rest of my body!
