I purchased this with my birch boxes points.. It arrived within a week. I've used it religiously since I received it and it really does work! My Acne is disappearing and my skin is silky smooth! I would most definitely purchase again! It's worth what you pay for! The bar is a good size and smells great (:

Takes some time to work

I like this soap , I use it as a mask and for an all over body mask . My skin feels tightened and smooth after I rinse . I haven't seen any real difference in breakouts but I think I need to use it for a longer time

This soap literally saves your skins life! At first it caused me to break out (but whats new) then my skin cleared up and i haven't broken out since! I use it as a mask every couple of days. Make sure you lather it onto your hands and not directly to your face. Its smells bad at first but trust me the smell goes away once you wash. Also you get to look like a cool mud person for a couple minutes!

Best soap ever!
Purchased

I rarely use soap but after falling in love with their facial cleanser, I decided to give the black soap a try. This has helped with sloughing off winter skin build-up, ingrown hairs, body blemishes and more. It's wonderfully medicinal without a medicine smell. It leaves your skin squeaky clean and refreshed without perfumes or residue. My body moisturizer works much better on my skin after a good, black soap scrubbing. Amazing!

It's OK

In case you were wondering, this will turn your wash clothes brown. So I would suggest lathering it with a loofa or something that you don't mind staining. I liked that the smell isn't too strong because I like to wear perfume and this way my soap smell wasn't combating my perfume. It did make me feel nice and clean but I did feel that my skin felt tight after getting out of the shower.

Nice rich lather
Purchased

Works well. Lather is plush and cleans well without stripping. Tested on myself and my teen and worked well for both of our needs. The only drawback is the charcoal scent- thankfully it does not linger at all.

Shea Terra Organics Authentic African Black Soap is amazing!
Purchased

Having not really used soap as a facial cleanser I wasn't sure what to expect. You lather up the soap and apply like a mask on your face. The soap was super easy to use/apply and after leaving on for a few minutes I washed it off. It left my complexion clearer and smoother without drying out my face. Love it!
