LOVE this soap
Purchased

Love, love, love this soap. I use it on my face every other day or so to battle blemishes and it works superbly. I'd tried an activated charcoal soap before that I enjoyed immensely, and this is even better. Would definitely purchase again!

GREAT PRODUCT
Purchased

I bought this soap and I love it :) It seems to be working and clearing up my acne.
DO NOT USE IT IN THE SHOWER! It can make a mess. Use it at your sink before you take a shower.
I highly recommend this soap to anyone suffering from acne. I will be buying again.

Love it!

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!

Best soap
Purchased

Love this! I use it as a face mask every other day. I noticed an improvement in the first week. I will definitely buy this again. This has become a permanent part of my face cleansing routine.

Cleared up my face
Purchased

But it is messy to keep in the shower, and having to keep it on your skin for a few minutes is a little hard to do especially when I am in a hurry in the morning.

impulse buy with points
Purchased

I purchased this impulsively with my saved up points ...what drew me to this product was the promise of healing broken out skin. I took the advice from others and the product box, I didn't apply directly to my skin. I lathered up the soap bar in my hands and used the soap as a mask (Also, a little bit goes a long way on my skin) ...within three days I saw a drastic improvement to the breakouts on my face. I had been broken out from a medication that I take and nothing seemed to calm it down. I ordered this soap and some tea tree oil just in case. I have not had to use the oil -- only this African Black Soap! I love it and will definitely consider purchasing it again if need be.

Great Scrubbing Soap
Purchased

Just received soap couple of day ago, so I was excited about the raving reviews.The first time I lather my skin, it felt clean and refreshed. I used this on my face as well, but I made sure I read on the box where it says to use your hands and not put the soap on your face.
It left my face super clean and tight, but I would recommend using a moisturizer since this product removes all oils from your face. No negative feedback, but the soap can be a little mess when using it. You might want to spray shower out or it will leave brown color. I like the soap and plan on purchasing again after I use this one.

i love this soap
Purchased

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.
