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
Purchased

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.

Love it, though it's a bit messy
Purchased

This makes my skin feel so fresh and soft after using it. I love it. Instead of replacing my face soap though, I added this into my regimen and wash my face a third time each day. It's really improved my overall complexion.

Great Soap

I really liked this soap. Sometimes my skin gets itchy, so I used this soap and it took care of that. Besides, it made my skin feel CLEAN and fresh without an overpowering scent. I wouldn't share my sample with anyone!

This product smells great and I've purchased it multiple times. My fiance loves it too because it helps clear his body acne and leaves a clean feeling after showering. Great for skin!

Great, stick with it!

I've always had troublesome skin. I just love this product. I've been using this product for about 2 weeks straight now, once or twice a day and have really noticed a difference in my skin. Yes, I did have a slight breakout a couple days after use, but when I was at the dermatologist before they told me that when you switch products they can temporarily cause breakouts before working so stick with a product for at least three months before giving up. After my slight breakout I haven't had a new zit since and my skin just keeps looking better and everyday. No, it's not perfect but my pores appear to be less noticeable and the problems I had before (you know those tiny zits and blackheads that NEVER SEEM TO GO AWAY!) seem to becoming less notable and are actually going away! This is only two weeks of use so I can't wait to see what my skin will look like months from now! I just use it in the shower and sometimes right before bed. I rub it in and let it dry on my face for 3-5 mins (sometimes longer) and rinse, afterwards I use witch hazel and a face moisturizer. OH, I almost forgot, I cut off a tiny portion of the bar to use and am still using the tiny portion I cut off when I got it 2 weeks ago so this product is really worth it! Works and lasts!

This is the best soap I've owned
Purchased

I read the great reviews for this soap on BB and used my points to pick up both the bar and the facial soap - I think they were both a great buy. The bar leaves my skin feeling clean and healthy and I've noticed a decrease in acne within the last week. I prefer the bar to the facial soap because it seems like it will last longer and I enjoy the exfoliating effects of the textured bar (lather in your hands first - it's too textured to apply straight to the face!)
