Great body & face soap
Purchased

I will definately purchase this soap again! It leaves my skin soft; doesn't dry it out or leave it feeling tight. It is abrasive so do not use directly on the face.

Face wash
Purchased

I bought this to use as a face wash and I wasn't thrilled with its results. It makes a mess in the shower and to be honest it smells weird. It wasn't the right product for me.

Nice soap
Purchased

I bought this soap to help fight my acne prone dry skin. Most acne soaps cause my skin to dry even more, not so with this soap. It keeps my skin soft and works great. Its a big bar so as other reviews suggested I cut the bar up. More soap! The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because its black, its a bit messy.

Great for body acne relief
Purchased

I use this for the occasional gym-induced acne outbreak, and it really works well without totally drying out my skin. I will say I wouldn't use it on your face (or if you do rub it into your hands and then your face), the exfolient is very strong and it would likely scratch you, but it is so perfect for any body blemishes. Make sure you rinse out the shower well or you'll have some questionable brown stains all over your shower! I like that the bar also doesn't shrink just from being in the shower, my bar has lasted several months. I love that it's all natural and organic too!

This product works
Purchased

I have suffered with acne and oily skin longer than I care to remember. This product in the short amount of this that I have been using it has help to calm my breakouts. I will defiantly be purchasing again.

Love!
Purchased

I love this soap! It kind of stinks and looks like you're rubbing mud on you, but it really exfoliates your skin. It can be kind of abrasive though. Will buy again.

Soap!
Purchased

I've only used it a few times, but I like this soap. It's not super-drying and I like that this soap can also be used as a mask. My skin feels clean and it takes of my makeup easily (even mascara).

It's a good-sized bar, and the idea to break it into smaller pieces is an excellent one.

Magical soap
Purchased

By far the best I've ever used. This bar of vacum cleaning, pore unclogging, toxin extinguisher and deep cleaning problem fighter I have ever come across. Refreshing, and highly recommended.

Good
Purchased

The soap definitely feels like it gets your skin clean without drying it out badly. My only issue is that it doesn't seem to lather up very much. I bought the soap in hopes that it would help with my acne. Unfortunately, I've since determined that my acne is probably due to a hormonal imbalance so I don't really think this soap could help that. However, I think this is a nice gentle soap that I can use while I work on my acne through other avenues.

Not my thing
Purchased

I have used black soap plenty of times before but this was just unlike any other. Usually they are super smooth and creamy but this felt like there were sticks in it. I hope others didnt have this experience but it kind of hurt to use it. I also hoped that it would help with my dark spots as black soap usually does but because it hurt so bad I just gave up. I hope others have a better time with this stuff.
