Refreshing and Simple
Purchased

I like that this soap can be used as a mask on my body and face. It's nice to have an all-in-one cleaner that is not harsh or drying on my skin.

Not real African Black Soap
Purchased

But good nonetheless. I would get it again with my points but I doubt I spend money on it. It's kinda pricey.

In love!

This soap is the best! I use it all over in the shower and I also use it to shave. My face broke out a bit after using it for two weeks, but I have not had a pimple since:) I will definitely be buying this regularly.

GREAT EXFOLIATING
Purchased

Product description is what encouraged me to purchase this product. It does have a good exfoliating ingredients,
I just did not like the black marks it left on my tub and shower and couldn't get passed the idea of washing with a soap that goes on a rinses of black, kind of felt like washing with mud bar soap.

Perfect for Acne.
Purchased

I've struggled with acne ever since I started puberty, and I've had a hard time finding a soap that makes me feel good, keeps my skin clean, and doesn't dry my skin out too much. This is going to become a new staple in my house. This soap leaves my skin feeling clean and smooth and soft. It doesn't leave my skin feeling tight and dry. My acne was noticeably better after only a week of using this, and has steadily continued to improve over the months since I started. I love this soap. It does have a smell that's not entirely pleasant, but it isn't strong and as soon as the soap is rinsed off of me, so is the scent. So I really don't mind. Small price to pay for the pleasure of having clear skin.

Awesome
Purchased

This is the best Black African soap I've used. Warning though...this is exfoliating and has a serious "grit" factor. I use it on my legs, which tend to be dry and scaley...it's great for that.

Gentle, Fantastic Little Bar
Purchased

My husband and I use this soap to wash our faces daily. If you are a first time user, don't be alarmed by the muddy appearance it can take once wet. Completely normal! Once you rinse, your skin will feel brand new!!!

Very nice
Purchased

I really like this soap. It has really diminished my adult breakouts. It also has helped with the "age spots", fine lines and wrinkles making them not quite as noticeable. All without drying out my skin.

surprised by this soap
Purchased

Ok so when u first look at it doesn't look like it's moisturizing , but when you use it leaves your skin soft and smooth it surprises me I guess u can't go by its rough look.

Great facial cleanser.
Purchased

It took me awhile to get used to it, but I'm on my second bar now. It makes a great wash or you can leave it on longer for a mask. It has a rough texture to it from the ash, great for exfoliation.
