I like that this soap can be used as a mask on my body and face. It's nice to have an all-in-one cleaner that is not harsh or drying on my skin.

Good for oily acneic skin
Purchased

I used this soap and other versions of African black soap for about a year, and this was one of the best. It can get drying, so use a heavy duty moisturizer (shea butter works great) when you use this, or alternate days. It does work well for acne, really brought down the number of pimples I had although I don't think it stopped new pimples from forming - if I skipped a few days my skin flared right back up.

Love
Purchased

I used this product as soon as I got it and I fell in love! My skin felt so smooth and looked clear, it was love at first sight although I have to say I was a bit sketchy at first but not anymore.

Very Nice
Purchased

I'm pretty obsessed with this soap. It's amazing at clearing up the skin. If used everyday it has dried out my skin but if I use it 2-3 times a week, it's great.

Works on back acne
Purchased

Got this soap for my husbands bad case of back acne. It worked very well after a week of continued use. It really brought everything to the surface and eventually cleared up his back. The only negative was the black all over the shower.

Still not too sure about it
Purchased

I don't really know how to describe it it wasn't drying but it wasn't moisturizing. It seems to do a OK job but I honestly haven't been about to use it enough to judge it completely.

Works Great
Purchased

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.
