It has a very beautiful scent and my skin feels great after using it.

I like it, i've been looking for charcoal soap. I use it in the bath and don't put it on dry skin. It takes a minute to get use to the blackness but once you rinse it all properly then you'll be clean!

This product worked really well for my face. I had been struggling with acne and oily skin. I will definitely order it again.

Best charcoal soap in my opinion. Gorgeous smell and creaminess. I wouldn't leave in the shower as it is quite soft. What a treat!

It's an okay product, but becomes quite gooey and leaves black residue

Best 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.

Does 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 repurchase

Leaves 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. .

The bar is great but melts quickly and has a very overpowering tea tree oil scent.

Great 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 :)

Lovely smell, feels lovely on my skin, does not dry it out. Definitely buy this product again!!

This 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.

Makes my skin feel so much better than commercial shower gel and my whole bathroom smells amazing

Beautiful 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).

I really like the smell and doesn't dry out my skin.

Best. 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.

LOVE 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.

I bought this soap for my husband and he loves it, smells awesome and great lather!
06/07/2017, By Cristina
Pretty 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.

Absolute 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.

What 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.

I\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.

This product is really nice. Gentle on the skin and leaves you feeling softer and more refreshed.

This soap really makes your skin feel like it was detoxed. It lathers well and smells good.
