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!

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!

This soap is great. You actually feel like all of the ick from other products is washed off your skin. The soap smells good too. So far so good.

Love this product

I do not use bar soap because it leaves my skin feeling dry; I was hesitant to use a bar on my face. I ended up using it for over a month because I love this product so much. I have fair, combination skin And this left it feeling clean and nourished. In my opinion this is a great deal.

I purchased this with my birch boxes points.. It arrived within a week. I've used it religiously since I received it and it really does work! My Acne is disappearing and my skin is silky smooth! I would most definitely purchase again! It's worth what you pay for! The bar is a good size and smells great (:

This soap literally saves your skins life! At first it caused me to break out (but whats new) then my skin cleared up and i haven't broken out since! I use it as a mask every couple of days. Make sure you lather it onto your hands and not directly to your face. Its smells bad at first but trust me the smell goes away once you wash. Also you get to look like a cool mud person for a couple minutes!

Best soap ever!
Purchased

I rarely use soap but after falling in love with their facial cleanser, I decided to give the black soap a try. This has helped with sloughing off winter skin build-up, ingrown hairs, body blemishes and more. It's wonderfully medicinal without a medicine smell. It leaves your skin squeaky clean and refreshed without perfumes or residue. My body moisturizer works much better on my skin after a good, black soap scrubbing. Amazing!
