Wonderful soap
Purchased

I was excited to try this, for myself and my older son. We haven't had a lot of luck with face washes for him but this didn't irritatate his skin and mine felt so clean and soft. I don't know the long term yet but I'm extremely pleased with it for now.

AMAZING
Purchased

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.

Just OK
Purchased

The soap has a very clean soapy smell and had my body nice and soft. I did get some spots on my face that turned red and actually had a burning sensation. So I would say O.K . for a body soap but maybe be cautious if you have sensitive skin.

Soap
Purchased

I love bar soap. I bought this because it's good for the skin and not drying like most soaps. It helps with acne and the exzema I have on my arms.

The jury is still out on this one

I was excited about this because it seems so earthy and natural. I'd heard good things about it, too. However, it didn't seem to do much for me. Facial exfoliators seem to give me the best results.

Silky smooth skin but left a little dry
Purchased

This makes my skin so soft after using. My skin really cleared up but then got really dry; however, it could just be the time of year. I was only using once daily but I'm thinking it still was a little harsh for that often. I'm doing to give it another try as it really cleared my acne prone skin up.

Don't hesitate to buy. For the price and natural ingredients you don't have much to lose.

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!!

Definitely Exfoliates!
Purchased

This bar of soap is a great exfoliator. However, be warned it may actually scratch you! The grit in this bar of soap can be so harsh that you'll actually end up with scratches.
