I use this in the morning and the Rose Hips Black Soap Deep Pore Facial Cleanser at night. These have done wonders for my skin. Smoother, brighter and little to no breakouts!

Lovin' this!
Purchased

I've been using this bar of soap for about a week, and the blemishes I had are fading fast (some are already even gone)! My pores appear smaller and tighter, and my skin just looks fresh for hours and hours. I almost hate to put makeup on after rinsing! I cut the bar into 8 pieces, and I still have a large portion of my first chunk left. This thing is going to last a good while! I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase. Thanks for showing me the way, Birchbox!

i love this soap

I don't know why this is rated so poorly overall. I've been using it consistently for about 5 months and I'll never use anything else. I cut the bar into about 8 pieces for easier use and less waste, and each little bar lasts me about 3 weeks.

Perfect for daily use. I've used it as an exfoliant with a loofa, for shaving and on my face. Smell is a little odd but doesn't linger. Keep in as dry of a place as possible, you get more use of the bar when it dries after use.

Great feel!!!

I really liked the tingling feeling while washing my face with the soap. I will try it for a month to see if really does help with battling my blemishes.

My husband ended up using this to was his face and body. He's a welder and gets pretty dirty. I use it when a zit pops up overnight. It works great.

Such a great value for the money

This soap does it all- and I am extremely picky about cleansers. My skin is breakout prone, so I demand a lot from my cleanser- remove makeup, no residue, don't strip my skin, don't break me out... phew! i had read about African black soap and I was motivated to have a simple cleaner with good natural ingredients. I'm not a freak about organic, but natural is always a good option. This soap does the job extremely well: it removes all my makeup, doesn't clog or dry out my skin, and leaves it extremely soft. Plus it lasts sooo long- one bar can easily last one year. Tip- cut it off in pieces to use at a time, and put it on a slatted soap dish so it doesn't sit in water.

OMG I love this soap. I have Lupus and I have skin that brakes out easily. I use the soap in the pm and it clears up and softens overnight

I have used black soap in the past, but this one is superior. I like how it is milled. I don't get the "breakdown" with this black soap versus others. At the time of purchase my face was going through a major breakout. this soap totally cleared up my complexion.
