I really like how it cleanses my face. My skin is really smooth, and this will probably last me the whole year, cause you don't need to use this everyday
28/05/2021, By Busi
Can be a little harsh, HOWEVER, it's great value for money (really, a little goes a long way), and it's cut down on the amount of time I spend and products I use when cleansing my face.

P.S. Don't leave it on for too long - it may burn.
20/04/2021, By Zama
My skin was oily, had dark spots and it was dull. It's been 2 months now using this soap. Dark spots have cleared, not only that but my skin is glowing. I no longer wear make-up. I use this soap everyday and because it dries up my skin, I use organic coconut oil as my moisturizer plus Argan oil.

Clears darks marks and mild on skin

I have the softest skin ever now.
20/02/2021, By Dikeledi
Cleanses really well and leaves my oily skin oil free. I expected the bar to be bigger though, other than that it works really well.

Works well t can be quiet drying so if suggest adding a cleansing oil or alternative facial lil to your regimen
13/10/2020, By FiercePatty
I have acne prone skin:
At first I used the soap alone and it was very harsh on my skin. The second time around I diluted the soap with boiling water and once cooled I mixed with raw honey plus aloe vera gel. My skin does not get dry after use and it is working super great. I use raw Shea butter to moisturize and my skin looks vibrant.

Fantastic multipurpose soap

Great quality
28/09/2020, By Sam
This product cleaned my skin very well. It can dry out your skin if you use it too frequently. My dark spots started fading, but I broke out again. I think this could be due to overcleansing.
11/09/2020, By TEGO
I love the results. It's been 2 weeks and my dark spots a re fading and I don't have blackheads and acne anymore.
24/08/2020, By Ta
I love it
30/07/2020, By Lerato
Love this soap. It’s made a huge difference with my eczema and acne although it can dry out the skin especially in winter but I got a FTN shea butter to help with that
28/07/2020, By Lauren
These are the ingredients stated as advertised.
Alata Samina (derived from cocoa pod ash, plantain peel ash, palm kernel oil, camwood bark)
I specifically ordered this as it doesn't contain coconut oil which causes my skin to break out.
On receiving the product the ingredients are as follows:
Alata Samina, unrefined shea butter, palm kernel, virgin coconut oil, cocoapod ash.
No camwood bark or plantain peel ash as advertised.
False advertising. Clearly not what i was expecting to get.
21/07/2020, By Vuyo
Overall, it is a good product. But not suitable for everyday use and can be harsh on sensitive skin.
15/07/2020, By Lunga
It works well if used correctly, I made the mistake of using it daily and messed up my skin. But when I started using it once a week, my skin returned to its beautiful state.
05/07/2020, By Khuthadzo
This is my ultimate soap bar. It has a nice earthy smell. I have a super dry and sensitive African skin, I use this twice a day and it teats me very well. I just need to make e sure I moisture well
29/06/2020, By Yasmin
Good quality black soap
26/06/2020, By sharlot
I've been using black soap on my face for some time now but this one I purchased it to make a shampoo for my hair. So far I love the shampoo I've created and it really cleanse my hair.
21/06/2020, By Busi
Ubuso buyaluma first day bekuSharp following day I started to notice reddish things around my face worse I have a bad skin I think I might have made it worse
02/06/2020, By Dhilshaad
The best
31/05/2020, By Simphiwe
The product works wonders for clearing out acne, pimples and dark spots. The only downside is that it does tend to make the skin very dry, so don't leave it on for long and moisturise your face afterwards.
20/05/2020, By Andy
Started using this soap in December and my skin has taken a 360 for the better. I have suffered from acne for as long as i can remember and now its all gone, no more blackheads and the dark marks have significantly reduced.
19/05/2020, By Khaya
I used the soap for 4 weeks daily,the first two weeks were okay but it then developed to burn my skin,as a result i now have pigmentation and dark patches on my face i now look tereble.
16/05/2020, By Sanam
Amazing for acne! Don't leave it on your face for too long.

Clears the skin in a very short period of time.
07/05/2020, By Maryam
Great for exfoliating
26/04/2020, By Amazon
it works great as a shampoo. It smoothens my skin, glassy feel. However, it does tend to give me an orange undertone( more so on dark chocolate skin)of which i am not fan. I also use it on my body bi-weekly to help with evening out my skin tone. I use it on my face seldom because of the undertone issue
26/04/2020, By Candy
Strange but helpful
25/04/2020, By Lwethu
Not really sure about this one hey, bought it for the second time now with FTN shea butter, I'll see how it goes
22/04/2020, By Khaya
Im just hopeful that it will help clear my acne and blemishes,it burns a anxiously waiting for results.
19/04/2020, By Chii
A first for me and will definitely purchase this again. This soap left my skin radiant and wasn't harsh at all. I love that a little goes a long way and it leaves your skin feeling amazing. Excited to see the long term results when the immediate results have already been so miraculous.
17/04/2020, By xina
more affordable than most black soap bars

LOVE LOVE LOVE. It really helped with my acne problem and it makes my skin glow.
19/01/2020, By ZUKISWA GLORIA
Yes at the beginning(say first week only) it burns your skin but I used rosehip oil at night and sunscreen during the day. I'm satisfied. This is my experience.
17/01/2020, By Nokuthula
This soap burnt my skin
11/12/2019, By Manny
I have been using this soap for 2 weeks now and I can definitely see the improvement of my skin. I have terrible blemishes I really just want gone and the soap is already lightening the marks. Really cannot wait to see a clear face *EXCITED*
03/11/2019, By Snethemba
My face was a bit dry when I started using the soap but now it's fine and my face is clear, I am so happy
21/10/2019, By Amo
I have been using the black soap for 3 days now and I'm loving the results already. I have acne prone skin and I see the difference already
14/10/2019, By Betsy
I love this soap. Smells great and my skin looks wonderful. My son is also using it and I can definitely see a huge improvement in his skin
23/09/2019, By Essie
The soap is great for every day use for all skin types for a deep cleanse, It has a very natural earthy smell and no added fragrances. The uneven discolouration on my body and acne scars on my face have cleared up after a few weeks of using the soap, because its a deep cleansing soap it does tend to leave skin dry so be sure to have a good moisturiser like raw shea butter.
24/07/2019, By lala
it a little harsh on my skin but after 3 days using it my skin is slowly clearing up
16/07/2019, By Fredericca
This product has saved my face from breakouts and scarring. It's a little drying so I turn it into a liquid and add some oils.
It lasts me half a year! Or even more.
23/06/2019, By Tshemollogo
The soap has an earthy scent, it's natural and does not contain fragrance which is good. It has lightened my acne scars in the two weeks that I have been using it. Black soap does dry out skin so it is best to use it every other day at night and moisturize your skin afterwards. I reccommend this soap for people with acne
12/06/2019, By Lungelo
The soap works very well on my skin and isn't harsh.
10/06/2019, By Thuli
Affordable and works well for my face and hair.
01/04/2019, By Nasiphi
It's a great product and value for money. It lasts months and is natural. I usually cut a bit and use it for weeks, stored in my small consol jar in the bathroom then I cut another bit till the whole chunk is done. No waste, you get all of your product. Comes handy as a shampoo as well and less plastic waste, I used to buy expensive face wash every two months, but not anymore.
12/03/2019, By PixiGoo
I love this soap. I have a combination skin and can notice my skin is less oily after only a few days. You should actually have a look at your pores after washing. The first time i washed i did notice a slight burning feeling but it was only on my forehead where there were spots (pimples) and on the side of my mouth where i had dermatitis. But this burning was almost like it was drying it up. The dermatitis on the right side of my mouth is nearly gone and i have battled with it for over 6 months. My skin is starting to look good. I will definitely keep using this soap. I love it.
08/03/2019, By Dembe
Best soap for exfoliating.. only used it for a week but i can tell you, it's working wonders on my skin
26/02/2019, By lungile
I love love this soap, great for deep cleaning but definitely not for daily use
19/02/2019, By Hanlie
Melted in hot water and mixed with oils, makes the best liquid body wash I've ever had
15/02/2019, By Nancy
I used this soap for 1 day I felt a stinging sensation and as if my skin is burning, it's too harsh. I'm recovery from waking up with a burned patch on my chin after using this soap for one day on my face.
24/01/2019, By Lalo
I honestly can't live without my black soap - I use it on my newly shaved hair as I suffer from Alopecia and this soap makes for good blood circulation and a clean scalp.
It lathers so easily.
Will stock up!

Nice soap

Left my skin feeling a bit dry
07/11/2018, By Mile
This product is very good for acne. I'll recommend it to anyone with skin problems
31/10/2018, By Suné
This product isn't as drying to my skin as I thought it would be. A little goes a long way!
24/10/2018, By Ntando
I use it on my natural hair and it leaves my hair so soft and moisturized and clean
19/10/2018, By Rachey
Great for acne prone skin. Cleanses well but can be a bit harsh sometimes. Lasts long as well.
16/10/2018, By Ingrid
Great product. I use it on my face. It leaves it super clean. You need to use it every second or third day. If I use it daily my face tends to be dry.
26/09/2018, By La
This soap is not an every day cleansing soap, consider it something you would use for a deep weekly cleanse. It must be followed by very hydrating products as it does leave the skin dry - and use it sparingly as a little goes a long way. Without correct use it can be harsh on the skin. I think it is great.
11/08/2018, By Micheline
Very happy
This soap is amazing I use it as a natural shampoo and it leaves my hair feeling clean and moisturised
03/08/2018, By Sally
Hated the smell and too messy. Also dried out my skin. Not for me
12/07/2018, By Maud
The soap dried up and tore my skin. I used it for two.days and had to stop. I eventually went for a facial at the local Spa to correct the damage
08/07/2018, By Mahlatse
I dilute the soap with water (otherwise it’s too harsh on the skin). Works very well as a deep cleanser for skin and hair!
22/06/2018, By Sandra
I absolutely love Black African soap. This works so well for my skin (I have oily skin with the occasional acne breakout). I think it works best for oily skin types however, so proceed with caution if your skin is more on the drier side.

I love that the one bar can have such multiple uses. I use it as a facial bar and even a shampoo (its lather game is strong!!). I had a rash on my neck and just using this to wash my neck dealt with the problem. If you're on the fence about this purchase, give it a try.
19/06/2018, By Maxine
In the beginning this soap worked great but after a week my skin started burning, itching and really drying out and now i have acne and a severe red rash all over my face. I think it should be used moderately, maybe once a week but not everyday and definitely not twice daily.

I have heard so much about Corium products online and they are well worth the hype, this African Black soap works especially well if one has oily skin.

Glad I have found a way to easily get my hands on this product.
20/05/2018, By Noma
Really good in controlling break-outs (very minimal when using this bar).
20/05/2018, By Noma_v
Feels great on the skin after every wash! It helps in minimizing breakouts.
24/04/2018, By Lwando
I love the earthy smell.
18/04/2018, By Getruida
I really like the idea of African black soap because the ingredients are good and natural in it.
24/03/2018, By Mosa
I love the earthy smell of Black Soap. Really great for exfoliating my body and clarifying my scalp AND the bar lasts.
