I have been using this soap for a week now. And I truly love, love this soap!!!!
After 3 days I could see the difference on my skin.
Not only makes my skin feel clean and soft, but it helps with my breakouts!!
10/11/2018, By Cathy
I would have given it a 5 if it just lasted longer :)
This soap is like an intense loofa & it’s quite a treat using it for scrub downs in the shower. It’s weird to see black suds everywhere but it smells awesome and you can feel the naturally anti-bacterial properties cleansing your skin, the exfoliation part is quite rough but feels refreshing and once you are done your skin isn’t left feeling tight. It’s quite a quirky stocking filler / Secret Santa gift as well cos the charcoal gives it a bit of a novelty element and is neutral enough to give to a guy or a girl. Works well for couples living together :)

Good for skin with acne and pigmentation
08/11/2018, By Liesl
Bought this for my husband. Now I can order more often from Faithful because he LOVES this soap. Works wonders! Just wish a bar would last longer.
06/11/2018, By Nataliya
Probably the best soap I have ever used. A bit scratchy, so I don't use it directly on my face and body, rather lather it in my hands first. Cleans nicely and does not dry my skin. I feel it does not last very long (a month or so with everyday use) so I have to stock up! Gladly the price is very good!
06/11/2018, By Charmaine
Bought this soap for my two teenage daughters. They love it. It has helped their skin clear up and leaves their skin soft and smooth. I will definitely keep buying this.
05/11/2018, By Sandra
I'm loving this soap. This was a new purchase, to help with the cleansing of my oily skin and I'm quite impressed. It is really doing its job, and without being over drying. Will definitely purchase again!
05/11/2018, By Bianka
My husband loves this.
01/11/2018, By Anonymous
I used this for my acne. It really helps with oily skin. No need to scrub hard. This soap has a lot of exfoliant in it.
30/10/2018, By Bonita
I absolutely love this soap. I suffer from rosacea and this doesn't irritate my skin, it is gentle and even a sufficient make-up remover.
29/10/2018, By Becca
I have purchased this twice now. I love the way it makes my skin feel (face and body). However with this second one, I was left with scratches all over my body after every shower. It looked like I had been attacked by a cat! Not sure if it was just perhaps a bad one.
29/10/2018, By Lishha
This is a really nice cleansing bar for all purposes. It cleanses the face well without drying the skin out. Avoid the eyes as it does burn, but for the rest of the face it works great.
29/10/2018, By Ashleigh
leaves your face feeling soft and peace of mind with how ecofriendly it is!
29/10/2018, By Rose
Reayobe this soap!great for problematic skin, i have a severely sensitive skin and this had not caused any reactions on my skin ... it cleanses so well too ! Highly recommended
25/10/2018, By Deon
I love this soap helped with acne
24/10/2018, By Celeste
I've been struggling with a strange hormonal outbreak lately and literally, nothing has worked - not even the damn expensive stuff! Until I tried this bar of soap! A real face saver!! :-P
16/10/2018, By Gloria
I love this soap, my skin is clearer and smooth.
I finally found a soap to use forever.
Love it!!!
15/10/2018, By Inge
Using it as a face & makeup brush cleaner. Just lovely!
12/10/2018, By Cee
I absolutely love this soap bar. So natural with a soft tea tree scent. I use this for my body and my face - it removes my makeup as well. Oh, and I love that it has a bit of an exfoliator-factor as well.
I don't think I'll ever use anything else again! :)
12/10/2018, By Ann
Seen a big improvement with my skin. Love this product
11/10/2018, By Sonel
Love using something natural on my skin!
11/10/2018, By Sonel
This product leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean. I have a sensitive skin and it didn’t cause any sort of break out/rash which I’m very happy about
08/10/2018, By Aneka
Had problem skin for years, have been using the soap for 3 days and my skin is so smooth and soft and CLEAN. Love it love it love it!
08/10/2018, By LSG
Burnt my skin at first but now its becoming clear, removes dirt
08/10/2018, By Angela
I have used this product over a few months now and will not change to anything else. It is also the only face soap my daughter will use as it has worked so well for her.
08/10/2018, By ragani
I use it to wash my makeup brushes and it works better than alot of brush cleaners. I love it, have repurchased many times
08/10/2018, By Natasha
My husband loved this product. It's great.
05/10/2018, By Ané
More of an exfoliator than a soap. If you have sensitive skin, definitely use a sponge or cloth to prevent irritation. No strong smell but still cleans well.
27/09/2018, By Erika
42 year old woman with combination skin living in Dbn. Use it on my face and don’t find it too grainy but could irritate someone with sensitive skin. Wet face first and then rub all over and it goes a long way.
26/09/2018, By Carika
This is one of my absolute favorites!
18/09/2018, By TSL
I love this soap. I started having issues with breakouts earlier this year, which I had never before had in my life. I started using this soap shortly thereafter, and it helped reduce my breakouts. However, it does seem like the company has changed the ingredients - it used to be more grainy/exfoliating than it is now.
15/09/2018, By Liesl
This exfoliating bath soap leaves skin feeling smoothe and renewed.
10/09/2018, By Karien
I found this project to be very harsh - I have very sensitive, but oily prone skin. It left my skin very, very dry and irritated around my eyes.
10/09/2018, By Justine
Great soap and I love the ingredients but it only lasts about 4-5 washes which is a bit of a pity.
05/09/2018, By Barbra
I enjoy the gentle exfoliation of this soap.
05/09/2018, By stace
love it, gentle exfoliating and doesn't dry my skin out.
31/08/2018, By Emily
I have very sensitive skin, and since using this product have been breaking out with acne as a kind of allergic reaction. Definitely don’t recommend for fellow sensitive skin people.
29/08/2018, By Alta
Very nice soap, the grainy texture is exfoliating, but it's still gentle enough to be used on my face, this is definitely something I'll reorder.
27/08/2018, By Simone
Amazing because it doesn’t dry out the skin like most charcoal soaps! Gentle exfoliating effect.
27/08/2018, By Debs
It really helps my skin calm down from breakouts although it burns and it lasts you about a week only. Really do like it!
23/08/2018, By Danielle
Just a prenote: I have a very sensitive skin. When I first tried this as a facial wash it didn't end well. It's quite rough (even after lathering on my hands first) and my skin felt like it was burnt. However, I have used it on the rest of my body and it works nicely. Skin feels smooth and soft afterwards.
21/08/2018, By Janisha
Bought this for my husband as a facial cleanser & shampoo bar - it seems to be helping his acne and dandruff.
20/08/2018, By Michelle
This soap has helped my husbands eczema, he finds his skin is less itchy since he started using it.
20/08/2018, By J
This soap is a bit grainy, and really satisfying for relieving dry, itchy winter skin. It works as an exfoliator, so be careful if your skin is sensitive or you have cuts or grazes. It smells good, cleans well, and I only wish the bar lasted twice as long.
17/08/2018, By Megz
Use it as a facial cleanser. Skin feels and looks much better and I have less breakouts.
15/08/2018, By Cm
Rough and clean. This soap is lovely but may not be for all. It has a rough texture and leaves the soap dish black because of the colour. I love it and have bought it more than once. Also lovely as a Gift.
14/08/2018, By Alisjia
Does the job but disappears quickly.
13/08/2018, By stace
amazing product! addicted!
13/08/2018, By Tash
This is a lovely soap, takes some getting used and can be quite rough on the skin if applied directly. It does however leave your skin feeling clean and fresh. Great smell too.
12/08/2018, By Sabrina
Keep away from eyes as it does burn. But, it's great for skin. Face feels cleans and makes a lovely exfoliator.
08/08/2018, By Nikki
I LOVE this soap! I use this as my facial cleanser every night. I just use water in the morning. It gently exfoliates and really cleans my skin. I have dry, sensitive, acne-prone skin, and it does not irritate my skin. My breakouts are much better after using this. My husband also enjoys using this on his face. Will definitely repurchase.
04/08/2018, By Hlehle ka Krestu
Love the soap, it has replaced my expensive charcoal powder exfoliant.
02/08/2018, By Dani
This soap cleans really well - a bit drying for my skin though
01/08/2018, By MM
Love it!! Has grainy bits so it also work as a body scrub
31/07/2018, By Susie
I use this soap on my face in the shower. It’s a great soap! Gentle exfoliating,foamy and not drying
30/07/2018, By M
Lovely product. My skin feels moisturised, clean and smooth after washing my face with this. It's gentle yet effective.
26/07/2018, By Liesl
My husband loves it. Will have to buy bulk! He has acne prone very oily skin and he says this soap makes him feel clean!
25/07/2018, By Susie
I really love this soap for my face.
25/07/2018, By Jessica
Fantastic soap, and so reasonably priced. Lathers well, feels great, and my sensitive skin is happy with it.
23/07/2018, By Amanda
This is the only bar of soap that is a staple in my life, I never use anything else.
I struggle with chronic eczema and it has helped in smoothing the rough eczema patches and is slooowwwlllyyy. evening out my skin tone.
The down side is one bar of soap doesn't last very long so you have to buy a lot of bars at once.
23/07/2018, By Karen
Great soap. Only lasted a week though.
16/07/2018, By Tracey
A re-order hubby loves that this soap is rough and exfoliates at the same time as washing
15/07/2018, By Terri
I’m sticking to this one! Cleans remake well without drying out my skin.
13/07/2018, By Michelle
My husband has eczema and this product makes his skin feel less itchy. He is enjoying using it.
13/07/2018, By lemuk
leaves you feeling refreshed, it's awesome, foamy
11/07/2018, By Simira
I have that horrible problem skin and am super prone to acne. From the first night, my mild, small acne spots have already disappeared. *you definitely don't need as much soap as you'd usually use and use the bar directly on your face and you've got a great exfoliator. A little goes a long way with it! I'm really in love with this product, plus it smells lovely!
10/07/2018, By Stace
Love! Great exfoliating bar, smells good too
10/07/2018, By Nalucajohn
I have very bad acne and was looking for something natural to use instead of all the harsh "medicines"prescribed by my Dermatologist. I tried the Kalyan Bamboo Charcoal Soap with Tea Tree and have seen a major improvement in my skin, I have not had a bad breakout and it seems the break outs I have had are clearing up nicely and healing faster than before. It does make your skin feel very dried out after using though but I still love the product.
09/07/2018, By Thandi
This is a real gem, It's been a week but my prone to acne skin is thanking me, also a best exfoliator. Just love it!
06/07/2018, By Mando
My husband can't live without anymore! he said his feet sweats less. I have a 15 year old boy, I was amazed that after a week using the soap he felt that he didn't have to use deodorant as much as he use to.
05/07/2018, By Marelize
Invigorating smell, also gives a good exfoliation. Just be mindful of the rough bits in the soap and use gently.
04/07/2018, By alicia
Very light scent l. This soap provides good exfoliation all over the body and lathers nicely.
04/07/2018, By Samantha
Superb product. My skin feels clean and refreshed after use.
02/07/2018, By Nicolene
Great product. Don’t worry if it makes your washing cloth black
30/06/2018, By Deidre
Really happy with this product. I buy 4 bars for our family of 4 and it lasts for the whole month. More economic than liquid soap. The only thing we battle with when using a new bar is the square edges, a but difficult to handle when slippery.
29/06/2018, By Nellie
My husband loves this product. Exfoliation property is great.
29/06/2018, By Siresha
Love this as more of an exfoliator twice or three times a week. But it can be a bit drying if used as a regular daily cleanser - when on my super oily skin! Still great but be wary to use sparingly.
26/06/2018, By Me
Read many positive reviews, and I must agree with most! Seems to work well, great exfoliator, however doesn't last very long. Would definitely recommend it, just maybe buy more than one at a time.
26/06/2018, By Ashleigh
This is a new favourite. Fantastic exfoliating soap. I just love using it. Although smaller than exoextes, it seems to last well.
25/06/2018, By Kathy
This soap has become a firm favourite in my family. My husband uses no other soap and my daughter and her children use this as a face wash.
19/06/2018, By Rara
I absolutely love this soap, it`s made with ingredients that my skin needs as I have a chronic skin condition. Though the bar is smaller than regular bars, it lathers on so well and so quickly making it go a looooong way!
19/06/2018, By Hle ka Krestu
Wow! amazing and affordable face wash! this soap has replaced my very expensive charcoal exfoliator from a trusted brand. It feels the same, does the same job the same way only better and cheaper!
19/06/2018, By Jodi
This product is great! Lathers really well and smells great. Use in for my body and face, so it saves me so much money!
19/06/2018, By Talita
I use it on my face and my face feels and look so clean. I am very impressed with this product, will definitely buy it again.
17/06/2018, By Samantha Jayne
I really enjoyed using this product and found it very cleansing and purifying for the skin - both face and body. However I did feel it seemed to disappear quite quickly once I started to use it so I'd recommend buying at least 2-3 to last you the month
15/06/2018, By Yolande
I have a very sensitive skin and have eczema. It does not work for my body as the tea tree oil makes my itch but it works for my face. Does not itch at all. It cleans out all the blackheads and my face have not looked so good in a long time.
14/06/2018, By Elle
I was a bit sceptical but honestly... This actually works, and the price is amazing, I've recommended it to friends and the list of people loving this has grown. Amazing product!
13/06/2018, By LALA
This soap makes an excellent face wash and is really affordable. Cleanses well and does not dry out the skin at all. I have hypersensitive skin and this works really well for me. fresh smell and I Love it!

I have been using it for 2 weeks now and the results are amazing. My complexion is clear and MUCH brighter. I started noticing results after maybe 3 days to a week. I also love that it is plastic free.

Worth every penny. Lasts quite well too.
12/06/2018, By Tanya
The soap has calmed down my breakouts. But it's exam session meaning I am more prone to breakouts due to stress. My acne scars are slowly lightening up. Today marks a week of me using the product. I foresee good results using this soap. Definitely, recommend this soap if you're prone to blemishes.
06/06/2018, By aneesa
LOVE this soap!!! so refreshing! and no plastic! yay!
even my husband commented that he enjoyed using it
04/06/2018, By Leyla
Fantastic product! Great natural smell, lathers-up nicely and doesn't leave a sticky after wash. Both myself and my husband love this product.
01/06/2018, By Varsh

I love this soap, I use it for my face and it lathers and cleanses really well.
28/05/2018, By Tshego
This is by far the best soap I have ever used. It really deep cleanses the skin without overdrying it. And a bonus is that it smells really great. I am hooked! Placing my next order now
28/05/2018, By Henriette
This is a really nice soap. I love the fresh smell of tea tree, and it makes a nice lather, leaving my skin feeling hydrated from the oils it contains, instead of dried out like most soaps do.
27/05/2018, By Rita
We always make sure we have two extra of this soap since we can't imagine a day without it! It can be used for your face or as shampoo. My husband suffers from psoriasis and this has helped his scalp immensely!
23/05/2018, By Kelly
This was for my boyfriend and he's response was " Ya its lekker, very nice". Hope this helps :)
23/05/2018, By Kelsey
One of the best soaps I have used, face and body!
22/05/2018, By Pam

Very nice exfoliating soap :)
17/05/2018, By Charise
Definitely going to re-order!
17/05/2018, By Bless
Finally found something gentle for my weekly exfoliation. It leaves my skin soft and gently removes dead skin.
15/05/2018, By Chivonne
My boyfriend loves this - wonderful soap and scrub - it's the first time he's ever asked me to re-order something for him.
13/05/2018, By Melissa
Second time that I'm buying this soap. It's a great treatment for acne prone skin.
11/05/2018, By Pat
Great Soap, like the fact that it has natural ingredients, not harsh on skin
11/05/2018, By Chrisna
This soap is wonderful, leaves the skin clean, smells amazing and is a perfect scrub, even as a face wash.
10/05/2018, By GenPot
I love everything about this soap - great exfoliant that leaves your skin feeling and smelling great! Don't think I could ever go back to using anything else...
09/05/2018, By Jacquine
This is such an awesome soap. I bought it for my husband who was very impressed with it. It smells good and lathers up like a champion! Even the beard got washed with this soap (and hubby is very particular about what he uses on his beard) I even used this as a face wash and I loved it. Will have to reorder again soon
09/05/2018, By Emma
Purchased this for someone who suffered from bumps on her chest and the results are incredible. Definitely a keeper.
08/05/2018, By Janine
Such a fantastic soap. A little goes a long way and it leaves my skin feeling great. A definite reorder.
08/05/2018, By Hanli
Wonderful product with great exfoliating properties
08/05/2018, By Tracey
This is hubbys favourite and have repurchased a few things. A rough soap that almost feels like a scrub when you use.
06/05/2018, By Henriette
It works well, but it runs out so quickly :(
05/05/2018, By Ashleigh
This soap is amazing!! I even started using it as a facewash and honestly it works sooo much better than the overpriced cleansing gel I was using before. LOVE IT!
01/05/2018, By Nedri
Leaves my skin refreshed!
26/04/2018, By tess
leaves my skin feeling fresh and amazing
25/04/2018, By Lynn
Love this weird and wonderful soap! You need to barely touch it to get a rich creamy lather. Just seems strange having a black soap that looks rather messy on the soap dish.
22/04/2018, By Claire
Great product! My hands felt softer and didn’t dry out after use. Definitely a staple in my home from now on.
17/04/2018, By Megs
Absolutely love this soap, it really cleans well and has a lovely subtle tea tree scent. It's a good buy.
16/04/2018, By Becca
Little bit amazed by this product. Can't believe how soft my skin feels. I loved how exfoliating it is, and it has a lovely subtle fragrance. Can see this being repurchased a lot in my household!
13/04/2018, By Tracey
Love this product this is a reorder.
09/04/2018, By Kristlee
so far I am really loving this soap. it lathers well, leaves skin soft and is overall a great product
03/04/2018, By hahmeenah
lathers well and gives you a clean feeling.
02/04/2018, By Calista
This is great!! Leaves my skin feeling so soft and smooth. Definitely buying more.
27/03/2018, By Angela
Great face wash - leaves face feeling clean and soft. If you have a dry skin though I would not recommend its use.
26/03/2018, By Tracey
Love this soap, hubby especially loves the roughness. Reorder
26/03/2018, By Tracey

I have been using this for a while and it has been great for acne. It does dry your skin out a bit so be sure to moisturise after use.
19/03/2018, By mimi
I don't regret buying this soap. It leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth. My acne is also getting better. i haven't had any new breakouts. will be buying again.
12/03/2018, By Emma
Amazing product! I use it as a scrub and it fantastic, it leaves my skin feeling soft and clean.
09/03/2018, By Tamar
I love this bar of soap, the price is great and it lasts almost a month. Initially I bought it for my face and then decided to test it on the rest of my body. My skin is so soft and my face is clear. I've now switched from body wash to this bar of soap :)
08/03/2018, By Amanda
My skin feels so smooth after using it.
08/03/2018, By Delano
Best I have had. Makes my skin feel clean and well nourished. Will buy more for sure
07/03/2018, By Jenna-leigh
it really clears up well
07/03/2018, By Kirsten
Good as an exfoliator
06/03/2018, By Carika
It looked so nice that I almost did not want to use it at first. Nice product.Expected a harsh smell, but not at all. Really lovely.
05/03/2018, By Nero
We use this soap daily with bath gloves and it foams up very well, exfoliates gently and rinses off well. I do find it slightly rough when rubbed directly on the skin, but I prefer using it on my sponge/gloves so I have no issues with it. Skin is super soft afterward!
05/03/2018, By PatsyF
Bit rough for general skin. But nice to foam up in hands and soap that way.
04/03/2018, By Sbo
Every order I make I have to add this soap. I do not have oil prone skin or acne, however it still works well on my combination dry skin

I'll never use another soap again. Absolutely adore this product. It's super versatile. It's helped my skin clear up and makes my face feel amazing.... best of all you can use it as a replacement for any soap. Ever makes my basin look cleaner :)
27/02/2018, By Virginia
This is a great product for acne-prone, sensitive skin! It does not cause any irritation, and acne is visibly improved. The soap itself is coarse, which makes it ideal for exfoliating. And leaves the skin feeling fresh and soft.
26/02/2018, By Mariam

I used this today, its great for exfoliating and for in grown hair, but not for an everyday soap, maybe a once or twice a week scrub. But its great and will keep on using it. I like it ... My skin is glowing and a shade fairer even after all dead skin removed.

20/02/2018, By Carla
A bit harsh,took some getting used to. Love it, great for my oily skin, love the clean feeling on face after use. For sensitive body areas like face and underarm just foam it up in your hands and then use.
18/02/2018, By Se
Excellent in clearing skin conditions (worked for my chicken skin)
18/02/2018, By Katlego
This soap lasts much longer than other natural soaps I've tried. It washes you clean, and foams well. I love that it's also a bit cheaper than other soaps one finds on this website. I don't have problematic skin so I can't really vouch for its detoxing/skin clearing/healing capabilities. I have 1 issue though - it irritates my lady parts so I don't use it to wash that area. Not sure if it's the tea tree oil or what, but for down there, it's a no-no.
14/02/2018, By Laurie
Love this soap. I have problematic skin with a lot of pigmentation and this soap is definitely agreeable to my skin. great cleanser and i'm hoping it can help with my pigmentation over time.

Excellent for oily or teenage skin, sensitive enough for all skin types, yet deep cleansing and extremely effective for both blackheads and breakouts. Cleanses deeply without dehydrating the skin.

As a person who is allergic to fragrances and preservatives, this soap has met all my requirements. My skin feels clean and fresh. Love it!
10/02/2018, By Michelle
This is an amazing exfoliating soap - and it lasts such a long time!
09/02/2018, By Nicole
I really enjoy this soap. I feel extra clean after using it. i love to use it under my arms to ensure a good detoxing clean and also great for under feet. Love it!
09/02/2018, By Spee
Leaves your skin squeaky clean :)
08/02/2018, By Zakz
Second time I've ordered this and I think I'll continue in the future. :) I just wish they were made in bigger bars though.
08/02/2018, By Nick
Really like this soap and the way my skin feels after using it.
06/02/2018, By Eva
Excellent exfoliating soap and makes the skin feel so clean. And it lasts very long
05/02/2018, By Anneen
Very nice. Makes nice lather. My skin feels good. It is very rough though, nice to exfoliate your back but too rough to use directly on most skin
05/02/2018, By Melissa
This soap leaves your skin squeaky clean without drying out the skin. It's great at removing makeup at the end of the day. I've been using it on my back to clear up the acne and it really helps.
02/02/2018, By Nadia
Good exfoliating soap. Not ideal for shaving though.
02/02/2018, By Xanthe
Great for skin!
29/01/2018, By Michelle
Lathers nicely, smells good and makes my skin feel good. I only docked one star due to the fact that it is way to rough to use directly on the skin (ouch).
29/01/2018, By Lady Bug
I love this soap. Very effective. I just wish there was a bigger bar.
25/01/2018, By Varsha
So great to have an affordable straw option that is biodegradable and works !!
25/01/2018, By Brigette
Invigorating smell and it is also the first bar of soap ever that does not irritate my super sensitive eczema prone skin. Definitely buying it again.
22/01/2018, By Kathy
I bought this soap for my husband and he loves it! It does not dry his skin at all and he loves the rough feel of the soap.
21/01/2018, By Ziyanda
Absolutely the best bar of soap I've used on my skin.
I'm very open to trying safe and natural products on my sensitive skin and this, by far, has me ordering a few more.
Definitely including this in gift bags.
21/01/2018, By Crystal
It's gentle, cleansing and has made my skin feel super smooth!
16/01/2018, By René
I really feel super clean after using this soap ;)
My underarms seem lighter after about a week of using it, which was exactly my aim when buying it. Overall a good feel.
16/01/2018, By Michelle
I love the fresh smell of the soap and the rough feel of it is great for exfoliation. It is lasting longer than I thought it would and that makes me even happier.
09/01/2018, By Christa
A gentle soap, not drying my skin and love the smooth softness of my skin after use
09/01/2018, By Zakiyah
I really like the smell of this soap. Just wondering whether there's any sulphate in it since it forms lather very easily? If not, I will definitely be buying these in the future again. :)
08/01/2018, By Lexi
Leaves the face feeling crisp, clear, refreshed and renewed - it’s affordable affordable and environmentally friendly, as well as being aesthetically pleasing - one truely can have it all!
08/01/2018, By TheKing
Really loved the product. The smell was not at all intense for me. However, it did leave my face very dry, but it left the skin on the rest of body feeling great. Definitely buying it again.
07/01/2018, By Ayanda
As I unpacked it, I could smell the pungent smell of Tea Tree oil. I bought this to heal some issues I'm having with my skin. And I know it will work. It feels great and is all organic.
06/01/2018, By Rikus
Really happy with the product
03/01/2018, By Maike
Haven't used it yet but looks good, except that it's tiny. Did not realise how small it would be from the picture, so not really the value for money I thought it was when I bought it.
03/01/2018, By Lindsey
Great smell! It's a bit messy as charcoal comes off in shower but still a great product.
01/01/2018, By Megan
Love this soap! Doesn't dry out your skin and has a nice exfoliating effect. It is my go to.
26/12/2017, By Jenna-leigh
clears out minor back acne
24/12/2017, By Nicola
Love this soap... bit messy in the shower, but worth it as it leaves skin so soft and polished.
23/12/2017, By Astra
This soap is just SO amazing. I love it and it is soft on my skin!
20/12/2017, By Sarah
Enjoying this soap. Only use it in the evening on my face. Skin feels good - though I still have to use eye makeup remover too.
18/12/2017, By Tals
It's a bit scratchy, so great for exfoliating! I love it & most of my bar has been stolen by my other half.
13/12/2017, By Tracy
This soap is a great exfoliant. It does leave your skin dry but I still enjoy it.
12/12/2017, By Liz
This is honestly the best soap that I have ever used and its great for the skin. I had an area in my neck in which the skin was darker than the rest (not due to suntan) and this helped my skin even out.
11/12/2017, By Kath
Cleans very well, but a bit course to rub over your body. A bit drying so perfect for oily skin. Love it for summer.
08/12/2017, By yvonne
This product is amazing. After first use my skin felt soft and clean. My teenage son is using it and his acne problems seems like it is clearing up.
06/12/2017, By Lisa
Will need to use sponge with it, and doesn't last very long but smells divine.
04/12/2017, By Annabell
Way too coarse and rough for everyday use or for dry and sensitive skin. After using this my skin felt extremely dry. I am sure it is a great product, my skin is just too sensitive to use it, so I would recommend using this with caution.
01/12/2017, By Siobhan
Love this product! My skin feels so clean compared to other products. Definitely would buy again.
01/12/2017, By Yolandi
This is really such a cool product. Cleansing and removes dead skin cells.
28/11/2017, By Melissa
I buy this soap regularly so definitely recommended it.
28/11/2017, By Janisha
Too rough for everyday use
28/11/2017, By Jenna-leigh
I dont use it on my face ...its a bit harsh
27/11/2017, By Isabel
23/11/2017, By Tali
Not as good as expected. Doesn't moisturize as advertised. Very harsh on sensitive areas.
23/11/2017, By Celeste
The smell is pretty great on this soap (everyone's opinions on this will obviously differ).
I have a very sensitive skin so I found it was rather scratchy when used directly because of the bigger pieces of bamboo charcoal in the bar, but all i do now is foam onto a bath mit and then use that way, still so great on the skin and that little bit of a tingle from the tea tree.
and the bar holds up pretty well, even though I've used it everyday for a week so far, it hasn't just disintergrated.
The price cannot be compared to commercial soap bars, if you want quality and goodness, you'll pay for it, because its worth it.
and this soap is defenitely worth it.
21/11/2017, By Tanya
Bamboo Charcoal Soap with tea tree makes my skin feel so fresh and clean. I have sensitive skin and this soap doesn't produce any flare-ups. Buy more than one bar... you'll be glad you did!
16/11/2017, By Zakho
It feels really good, mosturises your skin while cleaning
13/11/2017, By Libby
All in our family loved this soap instantly, even those with sensitive skin. Everyone keeps commenting on the "squeaky clean" feeling they get after they shower! The shape of the soap fits perfectly in your hand, and it lathers better than normal soap. Love :)
13/11/2017, By sumaya
Great soap but it can be too drying for sensitive skin so use an oil after and use on alternating days.
10/11/2017, By Zeenat
Great soap, depending on your skin type might be drying with excessive use. Otherwise amazing!
10/11/2017, By Monica
Foams well, great scent.
08/11/2017, By Linda
Absolutely loving this soap! It smells great, have a lovely lather and cleans great, while moisturizing your skin :-)
06/11/2017, By MJ
Totally happy with the purchase, starting to see changes on my skin and I just love the smooth feeling after use
04/11/2017, By Fran
It works wonders for my 3 teenagers skin problems
03/11/2017, By Xanthe
Great Product! I can see an improvement in my skin (face) since using this soap. I only use it at night though as it tends to dry my skin out a bit too much if used too often.
Skin feels clean, smooth and detoxified.
02/11/2017, By Caitlin
This is the best product I have come across in a long time!
Works way better than expected and the reviews don't do it justice.
My boyfriend gets bumps on his back because of sweating a lot at gym and after a week of use they are nearly 100% gone!

Love love love!
31/10/2017, By Vic
I love this soap!! It exfoliates and leaves you feeling rather smooth! Love it.
27/10/2017, By Kathleen
Very happy with this soap. It foams well and lasts longer than I thought it would.
22/10/2017, By Kelly
Lovely soap. I wouldn't use it everyday as it can be quite rough on the skin, but it is fantastic to use about 3 times a week to exfoliate. Not only just great for your face, but your whole body to.
20/10/2017, By Marinette
Good cleanser, may be a little stingy on sensitive skin. I don't use it everyday though, but it's great for exfoliation. I also cut it into quarters cause it's quite big!
19/10/2017, By Swayta
Love this soap! It is a great exfoliator as it has some grit to it, it smells fresh and does not dry my skin.
11/10/2017, By Bianka
My husband uses this soap for face and body and he likes it a lot.
10/10/2017, By Tilly
I love this creamy lathering, beautifully scented yet gentle soap. It doesn't leave your skin feeling dry or rubbery. I use it for face and body and it's great.
09/10/2017, By Lorna
I found this too drying on my skin (like any soap) but I love using it on my feet. My daughter loves it and it's fine on her skin.
09/10/2017, By Dalene
We just looove this product !!
04/10/2017, By Quinton
Great product and very gentle used it on my face - which I usually don't do - with no drying or tight feeling afterwards - marvelous to know that its a green product and won't effect the grey water system !
02/10/2017, By Jewel
Bit rough, but may need to be more gentle. Have ordered more for nephew with acne problems.Has helped mine so far
27/09/2017, By Sarah
This was a real find!!! Loved using this soap with it's gentle exfoliation and clean scent! Will definitely be ordering it again.
26/09/2017, By JS
This is my new favourite soap! Gentle on sensitive skin despite it's exfoliating nature. Has a bit of a funny smell but this does not stay on your skin.
25/09/2017, By Sanet
I've been using this on my face, it's not too sharp to use directly, and it's been good at removing makeup and clearing blemishes. It can be drying if you already have dry skin. I've also used it on my underarms and bikini line for exfoliation and disinfection. No ingrown hairs so far. I apply the soap to a washcloth to wash all over, but definitely avoid sensitive areas as it burns like a thousand suns.
19/09/2017, By Anny
It is a nice exfoliating soap! it has helped with clearing the acne on my skin.
13/09/2017, By Neve
I bought 3 bars without even trying it but I am glad I did. it is small, but it really goes along way, I have been using it for 3 week 2 times a day and it has another week left in it. this soap gives my skin an amazing glow, cleans very well yet doesn't strip away moisture. my skin feels great, ingrown hairs have been reduced, which is a very nice unexpected surprise. I plan to stock up!
11/09/2017, By Cherysse
I absolutely love this soap. Lathers beautifully and leaves my skin feeling awesome - love the exfoliator, love the smell - really, really love this soap!
05/09/2017, By Charlie
Love this soap, a great exfoliator for my skin and a good cleanser for my hair, and no nasty rash or dryness after use. The soap foams well and the smell is not too bad. the only downside, I wish the bar was bigger and lasted longer. i will definitely buy again.
02/09/2017, By Cindy
Great soap and loved the grainy feel to exfoliate. Tiny little soap though for the price.
31/08/2017, By Curious Buyer
Good foam. Not too fond of smell and grainy feel
29/08/2017, By Cazzi
What a beautifully balanced soap with light natural scent.
My skin is very sensitive and I had no issues with this bar. I don't use it directly on my skin as it is too rough.
I use a body choice sponge on my skin and just on my hands to face.
I keep it on a dark soap dish so I don't see any stains, my bathroom is white but it washes away once I'm done bathing/showering.
Also so the bar can be raised slightly so it can dry after use.
It has cleansed my face so well and I haven't had any breakouts since using the soap twice daily.
I have been using it for just under a month and there is still plenty left, a little goes a long way.
I will be buying more.
Also when I go hiking I use it on my hair too really amazing bar of soap. Left my hair feeling nourished and my scalp nice and clean and not dried out at all.
29/08/2017, By Vanessa
Love this soap, but took a while to get used to the charcoal bits
16/08/2017, By VERO
I have bad hives well maybe not hives but when i'm over stressed my skin comes out with a bad itch rash this soap has helped me a huge amounts love it have to buy more pity not in big bars
16/08/2017, By MsThee
I love love love this soap.
I rub down the granules and use it directly on my face. And use it on knees and elbows.
I'll be buying more
11/08/2017, By Melissa
Best soap ever. Does not dry like most soaps and love the graininess if you rub the soap against your skin.
08/08/2017, By Nicky
This is the best soap I've ever used. Lathers nicely, exfoliates, detoxes and cleans well. Stopped all skin breakouts very quickly too....Highly recommended.
I wish it would come in a jumbo size though, it uses up quite quickly :-) Never thought I'd feel this enthusiastic about soap!!!
07/08/2017, By Jenna
Very cleansing and lathers up lovely but be very careful on softer areas of skin - every now & gain you get a rather sharp piece & it can break your skin - it is fantastic however for your feet and rubbed onto a sponge it is fantastic.
06/08/2017, By Melissa
As someone who struggles with sweat and leads a fairly active lifestyle. I love this product - I often use it for underarms and feet then combine with another soap for other areas.
06/08/2017, By Nicola
Love this soap, it's so invigorating.
06/08/2017, By Tanya
Great shop really exfoliates your skin and helps with breakouts. It does dry out your skin a little
04/08/2017, By Eline
Fantastic soap, love everything about it - it lathers well, smells clean, and have only good ingredients. The exfoliating factor takes some getting use to, but it's quite nice actually.
However it uses up rather quickly!
02/08/2017, By Cindy
I like it: I enjoy the exfoliating aspect of it and it lathers really nicely, but my husband & kids don't like the feel of it at all.
02/08/2017, By Lelanie
This soap works very well for exfoliating and leaves your skin soft and smooth afterwards, but does not dry it out.
01/08/2017, By Monika
Love this soap, lathers nicely, works wonderfully as a gentle exfoliator. I have fairly sensitive skin, so far have had no issues using on face as well as body. Love the Tea tree fragrance as well as all it's healing properties for the skin.
01/08/2017, By Anthea
I love the soap. It does use up quite quickly but then again I like to lather up
25/07/2017, By Cand
Amazing soap - great exfoliator, long lasting and smells great. Skin feels clean and moisturised after use. Love it!
25/07/2017, By Rene
I would not recommend this to someone who has sensitive skin, as it is quite a rough soap. Having said that, it is a great exfoliater!
21/07/2017, By Mimi
This soap isnt suitable for those with very sensitive skin (particularly on the face). However, I will award it for being a great body exfoliator!! I love using in on those areas prone to darkening e.g armpits, elbows.
21/07/2017, By Vialli
I love the smell and how the charcoal exfoliate my body. It leaves my body moisturized and very clean.
I also love that it lasts long .
19/07/2017, By Emma
I use the soap bar as an exfoliating scrub and love it!
18/07/2017, By Melissa
LOVE THIS! Definitely a must try, its exfoliating and moisturising all in one. great for all skin conditions, leave it on for a few minutes.
17/07/2017, By Kelly
I have tried most of the Kalyan range and love them all. We have very brackish water and this still manages a great rich lather & you feel squeaky clean after using it - LOVE!
14/07/2017, By Toni
Great product! It makes a very rich lather with just a tiny bit. The exfoliant bits are a bit sharp, but as I tend to sometimes over-scrub my face this actually helps as it forces me to be gentler, but this might be a problem for someone with very sensitive skin. The soap itself is very soothing though and it doesn't leave your face feeling stripped after a wash.
13/07/2017, By Sizwe
Let me tell you outright, this soap is really good. It fixed my skin irritation issues within a week and it really works. I love the natural smell and the fact that the grey water is super safe for irrigation. On thing I don't like is the fact that it is small in size.
05/07/2017, By Mary
This soap leaves your skin feeling soft not depleted. I'm a charcoal fan so that part does it for me - no more itchy dry skin. Thanks
04/07/2017, By Heather
The exfoliating bits are a bit harsh so I only used once or twice a week. I think it did help a bit with curbing all my eczema though.
02/07/2017, By Sulet
I love how it smells, the Tea Tree oil is great.
A little bit goes a long way, and I will definitely be using it again in the future.

01/07/2017, By Lara
Great for exfoliation but not for everyday use !!!
21/06/2017, By Natz
LOVE LOVE LOVE, I did not know it has granules so you are able to exfoliate with just washing with the soap itself.
It might feel a little harsh depending on your skin sensitivity, so just be gentle, I loved it.
19/06/2017, By BigBoss
Best natural soap I have used so far.
19/06/2017, By Dune
This is the best soap I have ever used. Being vegan it is difficult to find good quality soaps. This soap has certainly ended my search for vegan soap! The Bamboo Charcoal soap is refreshing, invigorating and great for exfoliation. I am hooked!
16/06/2017, By KS
Brilliant soap - invigorating, refreshing, deep-cleansing.
05/06/2017, By Kaylah
This is great- helps a lot with body odour. The harsh particles are a bit difficult to deal with so I cannot use the bar directly on my skin but on a washcloth or sponge it's great. it does leave my skin a bit dry, but extremely clean and after using it for a while now, I have gone completely roll-on free. I wish the harsh beads were a little less so that i can lather the bar all over my body. Works well as a face wash too.
03/06/2017, By Jo H
Great soap, my husband likes it. He uses it for his face, body and hair.
02/06/2017, By Elsabe
Smells good. Lathers well in spite of the very sharp hard pieces of charcoal in it. It is too rough and spiky for my sensitive skin and actually pierced my skin. It can leave your skin quite dry.
24/05/2017, By Candice
The bits of charcoal can be quite sharp, so this bar of soap has ended up becoming more of a 'exfoliator' than a bar of soap I would rub over my body. However, it's really great for exfoliating tough dry skin on elbows and feet. Love it for that.
I tend to find it leaves my skin a bit dry if I use it on my face though, but I do have drier skin.
27/02/2017, By Sandi
This soap bar is ultra moisturizing and leaves my skin feeling smooth and smelling great! I no longer require body creams as this soap bar fully nourishes my skin!
24/02/2017, By WB
Such a nice soap, love the fine charcoal bit that add a bit of texture to the soap. It smells great and works well. Best of all my fiance it too ;)
19/02/2017, By Dalen Family
Fantastic product. The whole family now uses it as both a body wash as well as a shampoo.
Great smell, great cleansing.
01/02/2017, By Christelle
The best exfoliating soap I have ever used to contain my arm and leg Seborrheic keratosis. Highly recommended !
21/11/2016, By Priya
I will never buy another brand of soap again. Love the charcoal effect, leaves your skin feeling so fresh, with a glowing effect. Good for acne prone skin.
