I take other supplements for quite a while, which have never fully resolved my acne issues, although they have been greatly improved. Still have some residual acne and clogged pores, and after reading all the amazing reviews decided to order the black soap, and it did not disapoint: very supple skin with smaller pores and gradually much more even, and brighter with reduced impurities. AMAZING skin! CLEVER TIP: cut a very small slice (a little goes a loooong way) and make liquid soap with it (plenty of easy DIY recipes online), then put it in a soap dispenser and you will have the same amazing benefit in a much more practical format, it may not lather as much, but that is irrelevant for me!! Works for me. Have also cut a small slice of it and put it in one of those small complimentary hotel soap boxes, and carry it with me on trips without being heavy, bulky or triggering the liquid limitations of planes. Try it!

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...

I ordered this soap because of the great reviews I read. I have been using it for almost a month and it works well on the body but I'm not seeing great results as a facial soap. I will continue to keep using it to see if I will get a better result.

I used this after an oil-based cleanser. It leaves my combo skin feeling tight and stings if it gets in your eyes. Wouldn't hurry to re-purchase.

I really, really wanted to like this soap because it seems to be so famous, and it's all natural, cruelty-free, and it's manufactured by a highly trusted brand... But I was very disappointed when I used it :( I bought it to see if it helped my acne problems but, sadly, it did nothing. I used it for a few months, my acne stayed the same, and on top of that I noticed that my skin became very dry after using the soap, making me feel like I needed to apply an extra dose of moisturizer to compensate. On the other hand, it works very well as body scrub in the shower, particularly my husband used it like that several times and he loved it. But the truth is that I never ordered it again because it didn't do what I expected it to do :( To summarize: Pros: -Lathers really well -Cleanses very well -Makes a great body scrub Cons: -It didn't help my acne -Dried up my skin -Left dark stains on the surface where we stored it after use.

it's a really beautiful soap, the only downside is the smell! it's so overly perfumed in a fake kind of smell. i'd way prefer no scent or a natural scent

Good cleansing properties. But I don't like the scrubs inside.

Bought because of the rave reviews and thought it might help my keratosis pilaris in my arms.... no visible difference in anything. It is definitely more moisturising than your average soap, and I like the exfoliating oats. Smell is nice, but it didn't work any wonders for me. Don't use on your face - very drying.
