I am very disappointed by this product! I'd been eager to try it because of all the fantastic reviews, but couldn't understand the admiration when I finally started using it on my skin. I have sensitive combination skin and I was hoping to get rid of comedones in T-zone. But this soap wasn't helpful at all. Instead I gained a bigger problem - within few days of use my skin became extremely dry, which resulted in ECZEMA. Few red itchy spots appeared on my skin and kept growing for a couple days causing a lot of irritation. I didn't want to blame the soap for it, but as soon as I stopped using it, my skin started healing. When I tried to use this soap all over my body, my skin started burning and itching. From what I found out later, this brand uses harsh artificial fragrances in their products (real black soap doesn't smell like that at all!), as well as unnecessary dyes which can hurt your skin. Would never recommend this to anyone.
Best Soap EVER! Food for skin!

My skin feels so moisturizered after using this soap, it has Vitamin E which is so good for the skin, my skin is so sensitive and i was never disappointed with Vitamin E. I love the fact that this soap has Oats which full of vitamins that have many benefits for skin, I call this soap (Skin food soap). هذي الصابونه مليئة بالفيتامينات..شوفان وفيتامين إي وصبار..اسميها غذاء البشرة لما فيها من الفوايد للبشرة..ماشاء الله مناسبه جدا لبشرتي الحساسة..اختصرتلكم ترجمتي واتمنى انكم استفدتم من تعليقي

I bought this one to use on my face because I have very dry skin and acne. I was not disappointed. I love it and all of their products that I have tried so far and have ordered more. My daughter and son tried it and they loved it and want me to order some for them too!
Great soap, but it doesn't get along with white sinks!

It is very good for a natural soap bar, with pleasant smell, not too perfumed, as I always prefer. Does it dry my hands? --- The answer is: Yes (each time I wash my hands, I need to use cream afterward). If I could give a note from 1 to 5 for how much this soap dries my hands (where 1=Dove, 5=Protex), I would give 3 to the African Black Soap. The only disadvantage for black soaps is that the white sinks look awful while/ after washing hands --- black soaps leave black parts...
