Not like the original sample - so disappointed
SampledPurchased

I got this product sample in my Birchbox over a year ago and used the sample to every last bit. I LOVED that it applied thick like a mask, and after washing it off my face, it had exfoliated it.

Once my sample had run dry, it was a no-brainer for me to buy the full size. However, after 1 pump of the full size, I realized THEY CHANGED THE PRODUCT. It is runny and not thick like the sample. Looks like they got rid of some ingredients, which is such a shame because the new formula does not work like the sample. I'm so sad.

the absolute best
Purchased

no product has ever cleaned my pores as deeply as this cleanser. It works wonders. I only use it a few times a week (not 2x a day as recommended) and it still does better than any peel or exfoliant or cleanser or mask. I found this product through the website Beauty Sage, where they had a lot of great reviews. Try it!

Amazing!!!!

Love this product. Nice fresh clean without clogging. I'm addicted to black soap and this is the best one yet. Although, let's set the record straight west Africans have been using "ose dudu" for centuries

Lovely

I'm not one to use many products to actually cleanse my face but this one was great. Once I got past the color I could really feel how amazingly refreshing it was with out leaving any dry feeling.

Interesting

I have never used anything like this before and found it very interesting. I wouldn't say it made my face super clean but it was okay.

Great but STRONG
Sampled

This product is great. It will make you feel clean and help clear your skin; however, I can only use this very sparingly as I have very sensitive skin and this soap is seriously strong. I would recommend with caution.

Nervous to Try But Loved It
Sampled

I usually have somewhat sensitive skin so the description on the back of the label about "feeling it tingle" made me a little uneasy when this first arrived in my birchbox. But having tried it a few times now I'm a big fan! The extra cleanse it gives my skin at the end of the week makes me feel refreshed and glowing for the next day!

Not what I was hoping for...
Purchased

I was looking for a new daily cleanser and this one caught my eye. I liked the price, and that it is all natural. I found it to be way to harsh for daily use on my skin (which is not exactly sensitive). The directions are rather complicated, as far as cleansers go. You are supposed to leave it on for a few minutes, and like most people, I use my cleanser in the shower. So, I applied at the beginning of my shower and then shampooed and conditioned...inevitably, this dripped into my eyes. OUCH! It was very painful. It also has a funny smell...kinda stale and like tobacco. I did find that my skin feels very nice after using it. I now use it only a few times a week and do NOT apply above my eyes. I will not purchase again.

Love this

It was a little scary at first rubbing such a dark liquid all over my face, but I ended up loving it. I use it once a week before bed and it really made a difference. It works just like any mask, but it feels more natural. I would definitely recommend giving it a try!
