Definitely not for me

This product is truly black in color, has an odd fragrance, and the texture is thick. Not pleasant to use at all.

More like a mask, harder to take off

The ingredients and effects that are on the label are appealing to me so I had high hopes for this, but I was disappointed. The instructions on the back say to leave it on for 10 minutes (already long for a cleanser) so it's more like a mask if anything, but after the 10 minutes it is much harder to wash off than expected... It leaves a very slick, greasy feeling film on my face that I can't rinse off with just water and hands, so I have to use a washcloth and another cleanser/exfoliator to even take it off, which really defeats the purpose of a daily cleanser at all! :/ Super disappointed.

Wanna smell like a wet ashtray

I was really excited to try this unique black soap. However when I started to apply it to my face I noticed that it not only smelled bad, but it smelled almost identical to a wet ashtray. It smelled so awful I removed it immediately.

Horrible product

The smell and consistency are horrible. I could hardly get any out of the bottle. It smells exactly like a lit cigarette.

Horrible

I was excited to try this because I love trying new facial cleansers. I have oily/combo skin, and this product dried out my skin horribly. I also accidentally got a tiny drop in my eye and it burned for hours after.

Uh, what?

Am I using this wrong? I applied it on my wet skin, left for five minutes then massaged and washed it off. It left my skin feeling like I just used a cheap hotel soap on my face, that tight dry feeling. Maybe if I use the sugar with it & leave it on longer it might actually do something? Plus the smell is really gross to me. It smells like a weird sauce you'd find at an oriental restaurant.

awful :(

I really wanted to like this product, but I have to give it a negative review. First off, it has a really weird smell that makes it unpleasant to use. Also, once I rinsed it off it left a sticky residue on my face that I had to rinse off with a different cleanser. I guess it cleaned my pores but it didn't work any better than a drugstore cleanser that I could have bought for a fraction of the price. Extremely unpleasant to use, don't waste your money!

smells so bad

I didn't notice any redness or tingling as the package warned about and I liked how clean and soft my skin felt after using, but wow does this stuff stink.

Wanted to love it.....
Sampled

The texture of this product is like molasses--very dark and thick. I was excited to try it. I am always looking for great exfoliating products that don't over dry my skin.
And though it made my skin very soft and smooth, it literally smelled like ashtray!!! I am not exaggerating that point--it was really bad.
So, I wanted to love the product, I just can't stand the smell. I will obviously not be buying a full size of this.
