I've used this for a while now, alternate between the Vetiver and Gardenia scent. Both smells great. One thing to note is, make sure to keep the bag is sealed. I forgot to seal it for a couple of weeks, and the powder seem to have a hard time to dissolve. Also, I live in a humid, tropical country, so more important to seal the bag so that moisture doesn't seep into the pods and affect it's ability to dissolve.
love that it's reasonably priced, no animal hair used and works well. i prefer this over my elf one. i've used this for more than a year now, and no obvious shedding whatsoever. i even purchased the pink version for my relative.
handy and keeps my lips moisturizing for a decent period of time. my lips are perpetually dry and i work in an air-conditioned environment. but this keeps my lips comfortably moisturised throughout my day. it does wear off by the end of the day but not dry enough that i feel a need to re-apply. i don't think it has improved the condition of my lips, but it has helped with my perpetual dryness. i think my dry lips has to do with something internal and a simple chapstick won't help too much. am now on my 10th stick or something and will continue to re-purchase.

I used this product for a while, then stopped and went back to a conventional soap, and my skin became really irritated. So immediately went back to this and never straying again! I prefer this version over the one with shea butter. Somehow the shea butter version makes my skin feel drier.
i've used this as a body wash for a while now, since their old packaging. the new push-top is also super convenient to dispense the soap. i think the raw black soap is really good, i feel like it cleanses well without making my body feel too overly squeaky clean. Also helps with my back acne. i have considerably less now. I still have acne, but much less :) my dad also uses it as a shampoo, facial wash, and body soap. he is on his 5th bottle or more and he really adores the convenience of it.
i learned that my hair is the low porosity type and this shampoo has drastically helped reduce my hair frizz and made it more manageable. i live in a tropical climate, so frizz is a real nightmare and this shampoo is a lifesaver. the smell was a bit unfamiliar at first, very herb-y smell, but i got used to it. will re-purchase.
love the smell!! i feel like this scent is stronger than the vetiver scent one. it works well on normal wear clothes but if you have a very sweaty piece of clothing, may not work to get rid of the smell.
so i guess the oil was too rich for me. it made me breakout. i only left it on my hair for less than 5 minutes. then i washed it off with auromere shampoo. when i stopped using this, the breakouts along my hairline and scalp stopped. would probably categorise my scalp as normal, hair is low porosity type, i live in topical, humid country.
