Strong cleanser, overpowering scent
Sampled

So much about this cleanser surprised me. First, it's black in color and the consistency makes me think of something on a sci-fi thriller. Second, it is strong ... my face was "squeaky clean" with less than 30 seconds of applying it, and any tiny amount of the suds burned my eyes so much that there was no way I could keep the product on my face for several minutes like the directions suggested. The final straw and really, the biggest factor for me, was the smell. For whatever reason this stuff smells like cigarette ashes to me! Three times I used it and all three times I felt like I was using ashes from the bottom of an ashtray to wash my face, the scent/odor was so strong and distinct. Yuck. I'm sorry, I tried to like this product but I couldn't.

Good cleanser
Sampled

I like this cleanser. It smells earthy and is very deep cleaning. It leaves you with the soapy feeling on the skin which isn't a favorite of mine. The color through me off at first but it is gets the job done.

Average for me.
SampledPurchased

I wanted to love this soap. I've heard so much about the benefits of African black soap and I was dying to try it out. I was really thrilled that it was a natural product, and though it's definitely not fragrance free, it's also not distinctly perfumed like some face washes. However, it left my skin feeling very dry and tight, even after I applied lotion to my face after washing it. My skin-- very acne prone-- did little to change, which was a bummer because I was really hoping it would help to rid me of the pesky blemishes. Over all, I didn't hate it, I just didn't love it enough to order it again.

I thought this product was great! It left my face feeling refreshed, and I could tell my skin had been thoroughly cleaned. I love how the product is so natural, and it was very mild on my sensitive skin!

great goo!

This product is definitely worth it. It is a slimy goo, but it helps with clearing up your blemishes.

Deep deep cleanser
Sampled

I used this cleanser and it really sucked all the oil out of my face. I tend to leave on masks longer than needed, but have recently learned that with charcoal type they can overdry your skin. mine felt really dry afterwards, but really clean

Some black soaps have a tendency to strip all the moisture and leave your skin dry and tight. This one was perfect, left my skin soft with an amazing clean feeling. Will be getting it again.

Ineffective for me
Sampled

This might be perfect for someone else so don't be discourage but this did absolutely nothing for me and the smell in shower was a bit off putting. I'm only giving it so few stars because it didn't make any difference on my skin.
