Great for acne prone skin
Sampled

I got this as a sample and forgot about it. On a whim my acne prone daughter (who is on prescription cream and oral medicine) wanted to try it. Wow! In one use it made a huge difference! It will dry out the skin, so she uses it every other day. It doesn't cure it, but certainly takes away redness and bumps. A dramatic difference! I am purchasing it for her and thought I would write a review while I was here, too.

Love!

I have the sample of this and I loved it. A natural way to help clear up a bad skin day. Doesn't over-dry and is really effective. Definitely recommend!

Love this cleanser!
Sampled

I was excited to receive this cleanser, because I used to have some black bar soap that I loved. I couldn't wait to see how it worked as a facial cleanser. I was so impressed with how my face felt after using it. My skin felt soft and very clean. I will buy this again.

Love this stuff!
SampledPurchased

One of my favorite samples to ever come in a Birchbox! I've been using for about 4 months now. My skin looks and feels clearer and tighter. My fiance may joke that I'm rubbing dirt on my face, but even he admits it's working!

Nope...
Sampled

Nope, this is not a smell for me at all. Way too strong of a smell. I'm always bummed when stinky stuff arrives in my Birchbox. I like light smells, nothing heavy. As soon as you open this bottle you're blown away with a very strong scent. No thanks.

Great cleanser!
Purchased

I have combination skin and this worked great! I have been hearing a lot about black soaps and really glad I gave it a go. It seemed to clean deeply with out a lot of scrubbing and polishing.

Messy
Sampled

My skin seemed clean enough but the molasses color of the soap seemed messy. It didn't stain anything so far as I could tell.

Hard to use
Sampled

I had trouble getting it out of the bottle and then when I did it felt kind of clumpy and got all over the sink.

squeaky clean
Sampled

I'd never used black soap before (I'm an exfoliation freak, but you can make this into an exfoliator, which is nice). I let it sit for about 10 minutes and massaged it off with warm water, and my face felt smooth and clean. Will be adding this to my routine!

It really works
Sampled

works on blackheads. Reading the bottle I was afraid it would be too harsh, but it wasn't and after a few uses my blackheads , which I have a problem with on my upper cheek, weird I know, are starting to disappear. That little sample is lasting quite awhile because you don't need much. I will be continuing washing my face with this soap.
