Rated 1 out of 5 by from Irritated skin instantly- wouldn’t recommend Since reading reviews for this product, I instantly though this would help with my acne...especially my forehead acne. When I brought this product, I was so excited for that night so I can use the product and see how it works with my skin..which is overly dry. That night, I had my spin brush and my ‘African Black Soap’ and begin to damp my face and apply the soap. It was going well until I dried the soap off, the amount of pain and agony that was happening to my face. I never felt that feeling before! I didn’t know what to do, getting it off quickly wasn’t good even good enough. That whole night, I had to hold a cold wet towel to my face. My most problematic areas which are the cheeks have suffered severely. I even had to set up an appointment with my dermatologist to figure out what can help my face get through this, I defiantly do not recommend this product to ANYONE, with sensitive or dry skin.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad breakout I have mild acne and don't get very bad breakouts. I ended up buying this product to help calm my acne down and it did the complete opposite! I used it for about a week and my face looks like a pizza! I now have acne in places I usually don't get it. I've never had a face wash do this my face. Would not recomend and its not for everybody.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works! I have been using this for about a year now and I love it! It is very mild on the skin, but you feel clean and fresh after using it. It is also gentle enough to use on my face which is very sensitive to products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Significantly reduces blemishes on my combo skin I have blemish-prone problem skin, and I've used this for years after a friend's recommendation. It's become part of a regiment that has helped send skin that has gone through several moderate phases of acne into remission. I've noticed an immediate difference (for the worse) whenever I've tried other brands, and it's safe to say I'm never going back! SKIN TYPE: oily/normal combination. I can't speak to whether it may irritate/chafe dry skin types.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not my cup of tea I would like to start by specifying that I have extremely oily, acne-prone skin. After a good period of time with clear skin, I started breaking out recently and decided to give this bar a try after hearing a lot of great reviews about the effects of African Black Soap on acne. Using this bar of soap in combination with the toner almost completely CLEARED my body acne on my chest/back so I would recommend it for that. However, I've been using this bar with the matching toner/moisturizer on my face for a month now and my skin has not looked worse in years. My skin is so badly broken out that I have pimple in places I used to never get acne in. I don't know what is in the ingredients of this bar that sets it apart from "traditional" black soap but this simply did not work for me and I am hesitant in even trying legitimate black soap after this experience.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I've been using this for years but it does not.. My skin has never been a struggle for me, until I got into 8th grade. I battled with extreme breakouts for about month, until my mother reccomend I use the Shea Moisture African Black Soap. It worked wonders in a matter of a week. The size of my pimples minimized a large amount and my skin felt squeaky clean. Ever since I've been using for about 3 years. Now I'm in high school, and I began to have problems with my skin, which is worse. The African black soap has not come to my rescue this time. I'm not sure if they are lazy with how they make the soap now or if my skin is tired of the soap, but I wouldn't think so since it has always worked so well. Now I see what people mean by shea moisture not being the same

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Burned skin This soap is the cheap version of the real African black soap. After using the soap, my skin was more dry than It ever should be i started peeing and getting red bumps all over my forehead than later on that day i realize the soap had burned my skin on my forehead causing it to scar and taking over a month to recover. This was over a year ago and I️m still struggling with my forehead too this day. Very upset with this product not washing ur face does u better than washing it with this

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT I haven’t used on my face yet, but for the past month & 1/2 i’ve been using as a body wash. it hasn’t gotten rid of my acne scars, but it’s done a GREAT job of clearing my body acne. I used to have so many pimples on my back, and no i only have like 2! THANK YOU
