Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally found my holy grail! I've always had combination, sensitive, acne-prone skin and this has been the best cleanser I've ever used. My skin is so nice now that I don't feel the need to wear makeup everyday. I like to rub the soap on my hands and then rub it on my face in the morning, and at night I use my clairisonic. I've recommended this to everyone I know!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Effective!!! I've been using this faithfully for about a year now (twice a day; day & night) & have noticed an enormous change in my skin. I have naturally oily skin and this bar controls my oily face and has improved its texture at the same time. My acne scars have also went away, I'm not sure of the bar has anything to do with it but its definitely helped out so much. I haven't broken out once since using this bar (unless I'm on my cycle lol, that's a given)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clear Body I love this soap, I use it daily in the shower for my body. After a week I noticed that my skin cleared up, my back acne was flattening and disappearing. I think my face is too sensitive for this bar though because that reaction was not so pleasant. But I love the smell and will continue to shower with this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Honest Review of a great product For years in junior and senior high school I was free from acne. I was the girl all the other girls asked what's your secret. Then my senior year everything changed and my skin broke out with black heads, cystic underskin pimples, hormonal breakouts, dry patchy eyes, skin, and mouth. From that point on I have tried everything in makeup and cleansers from clean & clear, burts bees, biore, aveno naturals, mary kay naturals, st. ives scrubs, neutragena, equate, pro-active, trader joes brand, and almay. Some products work but make my skin itchy and flaky, while some calm but do not clear. I came across shea moisture brand because my college roommate is obsessed with the products. I tried an SM African Black Soap mud mask sample and it calmed my skin down on one use making my skin incredibly smooth; however, it tingled every time so I was nervous to try the whole line. I continued to use other products, nothing worked. I finally as a last resort decided to try the whole line. I use the bar soap, toner, wipes, and moisturizer daily; the scrub 2x a week with a facial spin brush, and the mask once a week. Originally my skin broke out with red pimples all over my forehead, it was a mess. I almost quit using but read to give it time and it also could be reacting to what I was previously using. Three and a half months have passed and my skin is amazingly transformed. I rarely experience cystic acne, old black heads are clearing, rarely get big red pimples, and the progress has only begun! My skin has not fully cleared but it is so much better than before with not dryness or flaky patches. As of right now I still have small pimples here and there but flawless when covered with makeup. I continue to use the product and even those tiny remaining pimples are beginning to dimish. I am a believer in this product and it smells great, feels great, and is great for the environment! Stick with the product and give it time to work! I almost quit using the product because I was not willing to wait for results. I am so glad I did. Only other products I use on my face is bareminerals makeup and nubian heritage african black soap spot treatment. If shea moisture made an african black soap spot treatment I would use it foresure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Acne and works amazing!!! My skin is very acne prone and I always used to breakout with bad pimples on my face, but when I saw this product I thought I should give it a try. At first I was skeptical because I have used so many different acne washes and face cleansers in the past, but this seems to be helping my face! I have only used it four times, in the morning and before bed and it leaves my face soft and smelling great! The only thing I dislike about this is that it leaves my t-zone feeling tight and leaves my face dry after I use it. But overall its a wonderful product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Soap!! I LOVE this soap. I have had problems with my skin for years and along with some medicine I take this natural soap has definitely helped the acne and bumps on my skin stay away! The reviews speak for the soap, the natural ingredients are a bonus. i have read reviews about cutting the bar of soap for longer use and I do it every time. I recommend this specific soap to anybody!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magical Potion I literally keep telling everyone I know that I think this is some kind of magical potion. It has drastically changed my skin for the better. My skin is staying matte and clearing up! NOTHING else has had this effect on my skin. I am elated! My skin is softer and finally looking radiant rather than dull. When I do get hormonal breakouts they clear up so magic. Please try this whole line if you are dealing with any skin issues. Who the heck cares what it smells WORKS!

I have eczema on my face and acne breakouts on my chest and back, should I buy two different soaps for each skin condition or should I just purchase one? And if so which one? Thank you

Asked by: SKST
Hi SKST, The African Black Soap products are great for both. Its an age old formula for soothing irritation as well as cleansing skin to remove buildup in pores, preventing breakouts.

When using the African Black Soap do I just wash my face with it or can I leave it on for a couple of minutes to let it have more effect? As well as for my back and other acne pro areas.

Asked by: AnaG98
This product can be used on both face & body, you may leave this product on for a bit before rinsing off for a longer more luxurious experience!

Did you recently change the packaging?  If not, what is the difference between this and the bar for "Severely Dry Skin"? 

Asked by: Maria
We periodically update our products with changes to ingredients and packaging. Ingredients have been slightly altered but this product continues to be great for both acne-prone and severely dry skin. African black soap helps balance the oils in your skin to prevent future breakouts and moisturize dry skin.
