Love. This. Stuff.
Purchased

I bought this once when I needed to get my order amount higher to get some free stuff. Omg, best $8 ever. I have since bought an additional one and another for a friend. I haven't had a breakout since I started using it on my face. I started using it on entire body since I started getting breakouts on my back. This cleared those RIGHT up. The soap has natural exfoliants so using a loofah isn't necessary. Be warned though, because the suds are brown, your shower might start looking ickier sooner. But it was always icky, you just didn't notice. Buy this soap; clean your tub more often.

Best soap EVER!
Purchased

I bought this because it sounded interesting and I needed a few more dollars in my cart in order to get free samples. Best decision! I haven't used bar soap since I was a kid, you know before body washes and liquid soap became the thing. Don't be put off by the brown color it produces when you start lathering up. Anyways, it's incredible! I just started using it about a week ago, I have already noticed a change in my skin. It looks healthier and my skin tone seems to be improving. It makes my face feel very clean. I am absolutely glowing!

Great product, great price

I love this soap. Like many other reviewers, I got it to score free shipping on my order and am so glad I did. The soap has helped clear my skin (not perfect, but better) and leaves it feeling clean and oil-free, but not overly dry.

Awesome
Purchased

I received the face wash version as a sample and I used it consistently for a few days. It worked well! So i tried the bar version(since its cheaper) and it worked just as well. I wash my face in the morning and night. I apply the bar directly on my face, it has a slight grainy texture so if youre really sensitive apply on your hands first. I let the soap sit for a few minutes so it can absorb all the gunk. After a few tries I could definitely see an improvement in my acne. I just wish I had known about this soap earlier T-T. If you need a long lasting (bc its a bar soap), organic and effective wash buy this soap!!!
