Caused me so much blackheads and it smells terrible!
Posted by honestreviews1 on Sep 02, 2012
Title says it all. I used it as facial wash - lots of blackheads on my nose and forehead afterwards. Used it on my body - lots of blackheads on my back. I used this for sometime, thinking that my skin is just getting used to this, but after two months, it's still the same. So not for me.
Its ok as a soap but i can't stand the smell.

The smell is just awful, at first its ok but after 2 uses i can't stand it anymore... too sweet. Don't want to gross anyone but it literally smells like sweet puke....
Will not buy it again.

Too liquid and the smell is strong and bad. Does not lather well.
Waste of $

It's a "fake" black soap; very drying, leaves scum all over shower tile/glass, doesn't smell fresh. Try another brand like Nubian Heritage.
Smells like a sleazy dude

Purchased this based on all the glowing reviews and was looking forward to trying it. UGH! The scent, or I should say odor, was a complete turn off - an overpowering, cheap, spicy men's cologne that you often smell on gold-chain-wearing men with their shirts unbuttoned down to there.
A smell terrible soap!

It smells terrible like mens cologne plus baby powder. Sorry I cannot stand the smell. It is a good soap if u can stand the smell. I like to read reviews that are usually on the negative side first now because most of the times the items that i brought, which i based on the positive reviews, seldom applies much on me, maybe one or two that someone mention in their reviews but the negative one, most of the times, i experience what they did. Ironic thing is sometimes we had different skin types but still had the same outcomes.
Unpleasant fragrance and lumpy

This stuff has an unpleasant odor -- like pine tar or something. Also...the soap and shea butter are not emulsified. The shea butter is floating in big globs throughout the bottle, and it does not blend with shaking. Its kinda difficult to dispense from the bottle because the lumps of shea butter clog the spout. I do not reccommend it.
Smells a bit funny

Lathers nicely, but smells a bit off.....my wife had to rinse herself again after using it in the shower, as the smell was just not pleasant and too strong to boot! Also, just read the label after we received it - you can also use it to clean the house?!?!?!
I don't like the smell

Takes away the pleasure from taking a shower due to unpleasant scent.
빨래비누 냄새만도 못함...

첨에 냄새땜에 구역질할뻔...울고싶었음... 샀기때문에 그냥 쓰는데 몇 번 쓰니까 겨우 참을만은 함. 냄새땜에 샤워하고 몸에 꼭 향수뿌림. 양이 많아 싼것 같지만 거품이 전혀 안나서 보통보다 훨씬 많이 사용하기때문에 싼것이 아님. 피부에 좋고 그런건 잘 모르겠음...
