Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding soap I have dry skin and I use this soap only on my face. I use it 2x a day and I mositurize my face immediately after with cocoa butter oil and shea butter lotion. I've been using the soap for 2 years and my complexion has improved. I also haven't had anymore acne breakouts in 2 years. I'm glad this soap works wonders for me and I'll will continue to use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT so far First of all, I LOVE the smell of it, I just bought the pack of 5 Shea Moisture African Black Soap things and it came with a small African back soap acne prone skin soap bar and it smells terrible compared to this one. My mom bought this soap bar for me about a little over a week ago(I'm 16) when I was having a breakout and my Proactiv and Mario Badescu stuff was not working. After only 2 days of using this soap bar, all of the little pimples and acne on my face were mostly gone, there was just 2 big underground zits that were starting to appear that this did not take away right away(they are almost completely gone now). After only those two days of using it, I went to the movies with my friend that i had not seen in a couple of days because of Spring Break and she even said that my face looked really clear when I had never even mentioned anything about it to her. I have combination skin, really dry in some parts and really oily in others, if I don't use moisturizer even for one night, my nose will start peeling, but ever since I started using this, nothing has started peeling and nothing is overly oily. I started using some of the stuff from the pack I just got and I don't know how I feel about it yet, I'm starting to get some little pimples and bumps on my forehead, chin, and cheek now. I really hope these are not being caused by the stuff in this pack, but I will wait and see if it starts to clear up within the next couple of days. (this is way longer than I expected it to be)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! TERRIBLE! Used this product for a month because I ran out of my authentic black soap from Ghana & was awaiting more in the mail and it broke my skin out soooo badly! My face was red and felt like it was on fire everytime I used it. This is NOT authentic black soap as black soap is actually brown so do not use go and get the real thing it's cheaper anyway!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do NOT purchase! I used this product for not even three days and my skin started to break out worse than ever before! I’m going on two weeks & it still hasn’t cleared up whatsoever. I’ve always a few pimples here & there, but this is AWFUL. I have red patches with acne under my nose & chin that will not go away. It’s quite embarrassing how bad my face looks because of this product. I wish I would’ve never purchased this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS SOAP!!! This soap is GREAT!! I was surprised to see that it had mixed reviews. I only use this soap for my face & it has worked wonders for my oily skin. My face looks more toned after one week of use. I personally love it so far! I think that it just depends on your skin type. I don't find it strange that the product did not work the exact same for others. You just have to find what's best for you! I would recommend using a moisturizer after use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my skin I am from seattle and moved to utah 7 years ago. The hard water here made skin so dry and itchy to where I scratched so much I would scab up. I tried everything under the sun. Spent so much money on lotions oils soaps etc..I happen to see the black soap a few months ago. I bought a bar and the lotion. After 1 use my redness was gone and no itching. Now I stick up on it. Thank you thank you thank you for this amazing product. I have told many others to try and I get thanked all the time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I heard mixed reviews on this product and decided to try it a few years ago I went through the whole bar and noticed some difference but it left my face super dry and burned. Since I noticed a difference at that time I decided to try it again recently my skin had been pretty clear and as soon as I applied it my face burned terrible and I had to wash it off quick. I decided to try again to see if it was just my skin getting used to it. NOPE! Burned again and in the morning I woke up with terrible spots and painful pimples and my face was super red and currently still is. I’m even too embarrassed to leave the house. I know this is the reason for this because the only difference in my routine was the soap. I love a lot of the hair products but now will never try the skincare ever again! VERY DISAPPOINTED!!

Is purging normal when you first begin using this product? I have been using it once a day at bed time everyday for about a month, and the first week my skin looked better, but now I am breaking out like crazy. Shoud I stop using or start using less?

Asked by: Kt1234
Hi Kt1234, When using a clarifying soap, it will help remove toxins and dirt from deep into pores. This will raise those toxins for you to wash away. As those toxins rise to the top of the skin to be rinsed away, the user may see some irritation but this is normal. As they are washed away, and the pores are much cleaner, the user will not see those same reactions and see clearer, cleaner skin.

Is there any fragrance in the part of ingredient labeled as "African Black Soap Base"? We need to avoid synthetic fragrances completely 

Asked by: Jess
Our products do not use synthetic fragrance, our products are scented with our proprietary essential oil blends. Regulations cause us to label this as Fragrance or Parfum on some labels, we hope this helps!

Can this be used on ur face or is it meant just for body? Also does it contain charcoal to help with pores?

Asked by: AlyssaH
This product can also be used for your face, the charcoal in this product helps to absorb excess oils and balance the oils in your skin to prevent future breakouts.
