The only fake ABS I'll use

4 out of 5 stars

For those of us that are African black soap hardcore we know that the for real stuff is not black. It's light to dark brown bars that sometimes have whole ingredients for exfoliation. Because I'm always on a budget I'll settle for a fake ABS, and this is the one and only one that doesn't cause any irritations. It fully cleanses my mostly oily skin and keeps bumps and breakouts at bay. The only thing I trust as much is Dr bronners tea tree soap, and this gives the same results while being 10x more gentle and no drying. I was v. skeptical when I unwrapped it because of the strong scent(which is a nice smell) and was blown away by the results. I've even decided to buy another for the shower to work on my body acne. Would NOT recommend this brand for ANY sensitive skins, 110% for oily/oily combo skins, still good for dry/dry combo if you moisturize responsibly. 4 stars instead of 5 because the scent is quite strong, even for a fake ABS, and really wish it was fragrance free.

I never ever write reviews but this stuff is so good I had to. I have struggled with acne and blemishes for years and have tried tons of different cleansers but this stuff actually works!! It made a noticeable difference in clearing up and preventing blemishes,my skin feels smooth and soft and my acne scars have started to go away. I also use the African black soap moisturizer and face mask and they are incredible!!!1

OK so I've had good skin for the most part of my life, with maybe an occasional pimple on my chin during that time of the month. However, over this last winter break I had THE WORST breakout I've ever had. My skin was so gross. I had pimples all over my forehead, chin, and lips. It was so embarrassing to go out of the house without makeup, and I made myself wear beanies every day to hide my forehead. Nothing was really working for me, so I bought this on a whim after seeing it all over Instagram. And Oh My God - When I tell you this stuff cleared my skin, I MEAN IT. I'm attaching a picture of what my skin looked like before I started using this during my breakout, and after a month of use. If you have doubts about buying this, just go for it. It's only 4 dollars, and if it doesn't work for you, it smells wonderful, and you could even use it to wash your hands. Literally. If you have acne, you NEED this product.

I suffer from a skin condition called hidradenitis suppurativa which is basically extremely sensitive skin that when the sweat glands are blocked you develop boils under the skins. Once your body tries to heal itself the skin has open sores that can become infected if not treated correctly. After using this product on my face and body, my skin feels cleansed. Would recommend, I scored 4 out of 5 only because sometimes there is a burning sensation but bearable.

This soap works so well. It smells really refreshing when applying and doesn’t leave my skin with a rubbery feeling like other bars of soap. However I noticed after using the soap it the shower it leaves my face a tad dry but I natural have slightly dry skin. I noticed my daily breakouts and dark spots began to disappear within days. Overall I would highly recommend this product to a friend.

Prior to using this soap my skin would break out, after using this bar soap I have seen a significant improvement in my skin it became more clear and I didnt break out anymore. I just recently ran out and my face began to break out again so I went to the store and bought another bar and my skin is back to normal. It does dry out your skin after using it but it's nothing some moisturizer can't fix.

I’ve tried everything for my back and neck acne nothing was really working until now. This soap is great for that! I have only been using it for a week and I can already tell the difference. I have to be careful with my face though this soap is drying And caused itching on the neck area so I only use it at night time and focus on the nose and chin area back of the neck and my back!

I saw this when I was in Target and just as a spoof I decided to purchase it not expecting it to do anything more than anything else I've ever tried. I am in love with this product. I have been using it for roughly three weeks and I have had no breakouts my skin is much clearer and smoother. I will continue to purchase this religiously. Thank you to the makers of this moisturizing amazing skin cleaning system!
