Works great! Lasts a long time!
Purchased

I am so glad I read the reviews before buying this soap! Someone suggested cutting off little blocks at a time to use and that is the perfect way to use this soap! It will last a really long time. Store it somewhere dry between uses also. I really love this product, My face feels so soft and clean! Cleared up the few pimples I had as well!

This stuff works!
Purchased

I've always had a difficult time finding something that actually works on my skin. I can honestly say that my skin is so much clearer and softer since using this. Doesn't really have a smell, but isn't anything too bad. I love this! Can be drying, so moisturizer will definitely be needed after depending on your skin. I've got combination oily/dry.

Love black soap
Purchased

This stuff is amazing I am recommending to everyone especially to those acne prone but it firms skin as well so anybody could benefit. There is some things I wouldn't recommend..washing privates and put the soap on a tray bc it stains and it is slightly abrasive so just lather in your hands.

African Soap
Purchased

I love it! It definitely works but I wish it was easier to put on my face instead of having to lather it all over my hands.

Best facial cleaser for sensitive, acne-prone skin on the market!
Purchased

I discovered African Black soap from several posts on IG with high recommendations. I have dry, easily-reddened, sensitive and acne-prone skin. I knew after using this bar to cleanse my face, my skin was barely red at all compared to when I normally wash my face with other mild cleansers. My skin wasn't tight either, soft and supple, yet felt as though a vaccume sucked all the impurities out! This is easily the most life-changing purchase I've made from not just Birchbox, but ever!

Nice soap!
Purchased

I really like this soap! It has a very mild scent and lathers really well. I do like that I feel very clean after rinsing off. It doesn't leave a slippery or tacky feeling on the skin. I also like that I can use it on my face as well as on my body. I would definitely recommend using a wash rag or your hands as it does feel abrasive. As others have mentioned, you can cut it into smaller pieces, but I didn't really feel the need. Also, it is on the messy side, so be prepared to clean your tub or sink a little more often. All in all I really enjoy it (so far) and I will surely repurchase!

Great soap for breakouts
Purchased

I've been using this for about two weeks. It has helped me tremendously with breakouts on my back. I found it to be a little too drying for my face. Also, it has a tendency to leave a dark color around the drain. All in all, it's a great soap.

The only soap I will ever use!
Purchased

This soap is incredible! I have suffered from "backne" for a long time which can be embarrassing and also painful. This soap has helped clear this up and has also seemed to fade the scarring! I love the all natural ingredients and do not plan to ever use another overpriced heavy scented body wash again!

Love!
Purchased

I bought this on a whim & couldn't be more glad. My skin felt amazing after using. I used it on both my face & body. Haven't been brave enough to wash my hair yet. I'm 46 and no longer suffer from acne beside the occasional cyst so I cannot speak about those claims.
