Ok so when I first got this soap I was extremely excited. I literally tore open the box and ran to the bathroom to take a shower. As soon as I started working up a lather with this soap I cringed. This soap is extremely dark and when in use, the lather even looks like dirt. If you sit it on the side of your tub, it leaves a dirt residue. So I am not even kidding when I say it took me a few weeks before I built up the courage to put it on my face. There isn't really a pleasing smell to this soap, but dear lord does it get the job done. Since I have started using it, I have noticed less acne issues on my face as well as my upper back. I never had a huge body acne problem, but since I have started working out 24/7 I will get random bumps. This soap as pretty much eliminated that problem. Definitely give it a try and if your a very visual person. Close your eyes the first time you go to use it. lol :)

Awesome

I like this soap. I am getting more of it. It works well on breakouts. Downside: turns my shower black, can scratch and break the skin, smells funny.

Great soap!
Purchased

I love the smell and how clean it makes me feel. The exfoliators in the soap are a little harsh on my skin. So I rub the bar of soap on my loofa and use that instead. My skin is really soft and I havnt gotten any body acne since I've started using it. I'll be buying it again.

good soap
Purchased

this is a great exfoliating and cleansing soap, and can be used as a mask as well. I have sensitive / dry skin and used it on my face without issues. It would be nice if it was scented, but other than that, good product and I would purchase again.

Rough Love
Purchased

I love this product! It really helps get all the dead skin off of your body and makes your skin SO soft. But I would NOT use this product on my face, at all. It is a very rough and coarse product, it would hurt my face too much!

Soap

I love bar soap. I bought this because it's good for the skin and not drying like most soaps. It helps with acne and the exzema I have on my arms.

Silky smooth skin but left a little dry
Purchased

This makes my skin so soft after using. My skin really cleared up but then got really dry; however, it could just be the time of year. I was only using once daily but I'm thinking it still was a little harsh for that often. I'm doing to give it another try as it really cleared my acne prone skin up.

Don't hesitate to buy. For the price and natural ingredients you don't have much to lose.

Takes some time to work
Purchased

I like this soap , I use it as a mask and for an all over body mask . My skin feels tightened and smooth after I rinse . I haven't seen any real difference in breakouts but I think I need to use it for a longer time
