19 out of 22 people would recommend this product01/04/2019, By JennyBest charcoal soap in my opinion. Gorgeous smell and creaminess. I wouldn't leave in the shower as it is quite soft. What a treat!15/10/2018, By IngeIt's an okay product, but becomes quite gooey and leaves black residue04/10/2018, By GaynoreBest charcoal soap in the market place!
I have bought this soap over and over since receiving it as a teacher's gift a couple of years back.
21/08/2018, By StewDoes not foam enough so you cannot get a good lather. Its also very messy as it leaves black marks on the sink. Would not recommend nor repurchase23/03/2018, By AlexandraLeaves my skin feeling very clean and fresh. I use it on my face, just careful of getting it in your eyes (stings a bit, but just a rinse with water gives relief).
Would buy it again.
I store it in a 'dry area'/ do not leave in my shower. Just to make it last longer. .15/03/2018, By ThatiThe bar is great but melts quickly and has a very overpowering tea tree oil scent.28/02/2018, By SueGreat soap and nice clean scent. I use is as a face and body soap and it doesn't dry out my rather fussy skin (I even used it to wash my hair this week, followed by a citric acid rinse and my hair felt great). The charcoal is grainy though, so the soap is quite rough if you rub it directly on your skin - wouldn't recommend doing it that way for delicate skin. I found it has lasted long and not turned mushy in the shower as I have experienced with other artisan soaps. I'm eager to try the Red Clay and Neroli bar next :)29/01/2018, By VictoriaLovely smell, feels lovely on my skin, does not dry it out. Definitely buy this product again!!29/01/2018, By AniqueThis is one of the best soaps I have used. It doesn't dry out my skin, I use it as my face wash, and it has a lovely smell. I highly recommend it.25/01/2018, By NickMakes my skin feel so much better than commercial shower gel and my whole bathroom smells amazing28/12/2017, By ReneRoseBeautiful product. Nice firm bar with a lovely rich smell. Lathers well. The activated charcoal provides gently exfoliating action without drying the skin. Love it!!!! To clarify for the reviewer who gave this soap a one star rating because of the inclusion of Sodium Hydroxide (also called lye, or caustic soda. The combination of an alkali (Lye -which on its own IS highly caustic) with oil (whichever ones are used in soap) creates a chemical reaction known as 'saponification' which transforms the two components into a totally new compound- soap. A well made bar---as this is!- contains no traces of lye in the final product. Hope this helps other users who might not realize this (as I didn't before I started making soap).30/11/2017, By AniqueI really like the smell and doesn't dry out my skin.20/11/2017, By KaylahBest. Charcoal. Soap. So. Far.
I left it in my closet for a while before opening and loved the smell every time I opened the door. It works beautifully and gently, Love it.04/10/2017, By PamLOVE this soap. I use it on my face daily - I usually have very sensitive skin but not with this product! Leaves my face feeling refreshed and clean. I've noticed less breakouts using it (and I didn't even know it could do that). Best part is that it lasts and lasts. I've been using my bar for the past 5 months daily and I've barely made a dent on it.27/07/2017, By SusanI bought this soap for my husband and he loves it, smells awesome and great lather!06/07/2017, By CristinaPretty soap with great packaging, the shape and branding but a bit impractical as keeps leaving black soap residue on soap dish which looks particularly messy. Will stick to other soaps in brand.29/06/2017, By BrendaAbsolute detox in a bar. I am so glad I discovered this soap. I was gifted with a couple of Olive soaps for my birthday and I can't go back to using anything else. These soaps are great and gentle on my face! I just love the way it smells, and doesn't leave my skin dry. I will recommend this brand to anyone wanting to use natural soaps.27/03/2017, By HelenaWhat a fabulous soap.
Sodium hydroxide - yes looks scary - is an ingredient in all soap claiming to be
atural or hand made. Without it, saponification (the chemical reaction of turning fat, water and lye into a soap) cannot take place. Its like trying to make wine without yeast or sugar. Strictly speaking, it is no longer sodium hydroxide once the soap has cured.24/02/2017, By FamilyI\m perplexed as to why this product would contain an inorganic compound and a highly caustic metallic base and alkali of sodium - Sodium Hydroxide!! Not for me thanks.11/01/2017, By ShariThis product is really nice. Gentle on the skin and leaves you feeling softer and more refreshed.18/11/2016, By AnnariI am really pleased with this soap. It lathers well, but not too much and smells lovely. It is gentle.28/07/2016, By SuninaThis soap really makes your skin feel like it was detoxed. It lathers well and smells good.
