the smell is not overpowering and it leaves my face feeling fresh and clean. It kind of makes a mess but overall, its a GO!

Works Great
Purchased

This soap works great for making pores smaller for my fiance. He's really seen an improvement on his nose. The only thing I would complain about if I had to complain about something would be some of the bigger chunks slightly hurt when rubbing my hands together but if you get it wet enough it's not bad.

Nice soap
Purchased

I bought this soap to help fight my acne prone dry skin. Most acne soaps cause my skin to dry even more, not so with this soap. It keeps my skin soft and works great. Its a big bar so as other reviews suggested I cut the bar up. More soap! The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because its black, its a bit messy.

Great for body acne relief
Purchased

I use this for the occasional gym-induced acne outbreak, and it really works well without totally drying out my skin. I will say I wouldn't use it on your face (or if you do rub it into your hands and then your face), the exfolient is very strong and it would likely scratch you, but it is so perfect for any body blemishes. Make sure you rinse out the shower well or you'll have some questionable brown stains all over your shower! I like that the bar also doesn't shrink just from being in the shower, my bar has lasted several months. I love that it's all natural and organic too!

Soap!
Purchased

I've only used it a few times, but I like this soap. It's not super-drying and I like that this soap can also be used as a mask. My skin feels clean and it takes of my makeup easily (even mascara).

It's a good-sized bar, and the idea to break it into smaller pieces is an excellent one.

This soap works great and makes my skin feel super soft. The only downside is that it smells a little funky.

Unique and exfoliating!
Purchased

I really bought this based on the great reviews it received from other Birch girls. When purchasing bar soap a guideline I use is that If water is the first ingredient I don't buy. It has to be a good oil as number one. This qualified and after reading the reviews I had to try it. It has enough suds, I like that you can use it as a mask. I have sensitive skin and could not leave it on the whole 5 minutes because as others said it did start tingling. But when washed off there were no problems. Now while this does not smell bad in my opinion, it does not smell good either which is the only reason for a four. I want to smell terrific when exiting the shower and fresh not like this soap. I will use it once a week until gone and then reassess if I repurchase. It is a good deal price wise.

would buy again!
Purchased

This is a great product for problem skin. It definitely reduced my pores after two weeks and helped with oily skin. It does however leave your skin really dry if you use it everyday.

Feels nice on skin. Takes a while to rinse completely. I use it twice a week and my face seems brighter.
