LOVE!

Other than the terrible ring it left in my shower, this product is amazing! I was advised to try it to clear up small whiteheads on my chest, and it cleared them up after using for 2 days. It tingles a bit, which was odd, but I will be ordering this again!

Wonderful product!
Purchased

This product has done amazing things for my skin in just a short 3 days, I've seen more improvement from the use of just this product then any other expensive or dermatologist recommended product. I've literally tried every product out there for my acne and if everything keeps going well with the African black soap my acne will soon be gone! Highly recommend this product, especially with such a great price!

It's a soap!
Purchased

I saw some reviews in here talking about it being a powder or something to that effect. I can say with certainty after receiving it that it's a soap. I used it with a muslin cloth and my face ended up feeling very clean. It smells good too. I've only used it once so far so I can't report on any long term effects yet, but overall I'm quite pleased with it.

Great face wash!
Purchased

I really like this stuff. It can be used as either a face wash or a face mask. It has an ashy smell, but it's not all that noticeable. All in all, I would recommend this product.

Awesome!

Who would have ever thought that a soap that looks like dirt when I rub it on my skin would be so great! This soap makes my skin SUPER soft and gets rid of my blemishes. I will never let this one go!

Perfect!

I use this soap every night before I go to sleep and its great! My skin is super clear and so soft! You have to be sure to wipe off all of the soap residue since it does come off brown!

Great soap
Purchased

Buying this soap you already know it is a deep dark color. It has an earthy and somewhat mentholated scent. It also has a slightly gritty texture, it's not necessarily "exfoliating" but it's not as smooth as a traditional soap. This soap is amazing though, it works wonders on the skin. If you have body acne (back, shoulders, arms, etc.) using this soap regularly has made a definite difference in the total health of my skin. When I don't have it, I slowly notice my skin to be dull and generally overtime become more broken out. The ash in the soap really does help me, granted everyone's chemistry is different but I'd say this one is worth a try!

Love it!
Purchased

I really, really like this soap. After using it as a mask for 5 or so minutes, it rinsed very easily with warm water. My skin was not overly-dry afterward. Instead it left my skin feeling soft and firm. It had a slight smell of ash, but it doesn't put me off. The soap did not irritate my skin either, which was great because I have really sensitive skin. I'm impressed and I'll definitely be buying this again!

Smells horrible, works miracles!
Purchased

Buyer beware! This is a powder, not a soap. You mix a little powder with a little water and massage this concoction in to your face. I thought it was a soap when I was purchasing. Also, it smells like ashes. Ew. BUT, with that being said, I LOVE THIS STUFF!!! For $8, this stuff is going to last me months. When I first tried it, I was taken back. It creates a mess, so use it in the shower. It does have a little sting to it if you leave it on your face for too long but I noticed within a few days this miracle elixir working it's magic. I saw a reduction in my breakouts, as well as my dark marks vanishing. It is also working to bring my blackheads to the surface and washing those badboys away. I recommend this product to everyone who is fed up with their adult acne (I'm 26. Should work on teenagers too).

A Cure
Purchased

I use the liquid pump at the sink for my face and the bar in the shower. Desperate always to try anything to help my adult acne, I first used this when I received it as a sample. My skin responded almost immediately, that was over a year ago and my acne is Gone! I recently went away on a four day weekend and forgot the soap. I broke out with pimples over my eyebrows, on chin and cheeks. In a few days of use my skin is clear again!!!
