i'm digging it
Purchased

i bought this with my points because i wanted to give it a test run to see if it would help with my oily complexion that is pone to pimples/blemishes. happy to report my face has been feeling REALLY clean lately and so far, no new nuisances have shown up yet. i was a bit worried about the brown lather at first, but it doesn't stain - just rinse your tub/shower/curtain liner and it's gone.

Nice soap
Purchased

I use black soap regularly and really just added this in for free shipping and because I was going to need to buy some anyways from Target or something. It works well, not really a specific thing about this brand but just the type of soap. If I need to buy it again and have an order already, I may buy again from Birchbox, otherwise I get it from Target or Walgreens normally.

Wonderful soap
Purchased

I was excited to try this, for myself and my older son. We haven't had a lot of luck with face washes for him but this didn't irritatate his skin and mine felt so clean and soft. I don't know the long term yet but I'm extremely pleased with it for now.

AMAZING
Purchased

This stuff is amazing. Seriously. The hype is true. It really does make your skin instantaneously smoother, softer, and firmer. It works better if you use it every day and use it as a mask. Definitely going to buy this again.

Great Product!
Purchased

I love this product. It gives the nice firm feeling of renewed skin. It also leaves your skin soft and helps remove those pesky pimples! Just make sure that you don't have an allergic reaction to it. I had one about the first week every time I used it but after that it seemed to stop and my skin got used to the fine ingredients. Definitely recommend!!

MUST HAVE BEAUTY PRODUCT!!!
Purchased

This soap is absolutely fantastic! I have tried so many things to help me with my adult acne none have worked until I tried this soap! I wash my face with this soap in the a.m. and p.m. daily and I have seen a dramatic reduction in my acne. I also recently started taking the soap to the shower and using it on my sun damaged decolletage area and a darkened skin area under one of my arms. The redness and bumps on my decolletage area are nearly gone and my dark area under my arm has lightened. I love, love, love this soap and you will too!

Closest thing thing a magic wand
Purchased

When I turned thirty, I started suddenly getting new, different breakouts. Deep, cystic pimples that hurt. I did a little research, and everyone recommended African Black Soap as the cure. They were right.

It took two weeks or so, but not only did this soap clear my breakouts, but it is also slowly making the scars fade. I wash my face with this at night and Derma E's Hydrating Scrub in the morning. The black soap is a little drying for my already oily skin, which is why I use the Hydrating scrub in the morning. With this routine, my face is finally starting to calm down.

Be aware: Do follow the instructions on the box and leave the lather on your face for a few minutes. Be very careful not to get this soap in your eyes, that hurts like crazy. There might be a week or two of adjustment. Don't give up!
