Here's the skinny:
If you're used to chemical ridden market soaps like Dove or caress, then you're not going to understand Raw African soap until you research the benefits. Purchasing this without a glue then hating it is illogical. Understand that this is RAW ash soap full of natural agents that heal both face and body from the outside in.
Because this soap is ASH, its black and has a unique smell. In my opinion the smell is just fine, but some may find it too unusual and disagreeable. Again, I think the smell is completely natural and acceptable and feel any objection may be due to one unfairly comparing it to commercial soap.
More often than not this soap comes in block form. This is how it is made and distributed in Africa. To keep the price reasonable the same form is distributed in the US. If you want a factory to sit and carve this stuff into squares then you're asking for a ridiculous mark up. So, if the size is your complaint consider practicing some self sufficiency and cutting the block yourself.
The lather is amazing! A small piece could easily wash your entire body from head to toe. The soap will create a light but smooth foam that will coat and cleanse your body. Within time the average person will notice improvements in their skin condition. Like I said before I have sensitive skin so almost everything leaves me dry; this soap does strip a little as any soap will, but it causes no where near the damage commercial soaps or high lanolin/glycerin soaps will cause. I recommend rubbing your body with coconut oil daily no matter what soap you use.Read more ›
I was looking because I have used almost every face wash on the planet to control my acne AND oiliness.
Most face washes would NOT clean all the dirt off, evident when I would wipe down with a toner afterward, and the exfoliating kind was too much for EVERY washing.
Storage: When I got mine, I took it out of the original plastic and put it in two ziplock bags with zippers (double layered), and I keep it stored on the bottom shelf of a cabinet, away from extreme temperatures and direct sunlight. I crumble off a bit from there (only enough for about 3 washings) and keep that on a separate soap dish in the bathroom.
Smell: It smells like soap without perfume. People complaining need to get over themselves.
Use: I have oily, acne prone skin. Blemish prone too. When I first got it, I got a little too over zealous scrubbing with an actual piece and my face went so raw afterward. DO NOT RUB DIRECTLY ON FACE. Seriously, lather with your hands. The rawness subsided after about a day.
It helped keep my acne at bay as well as oil. And your skin feels almost literally squeaky clean without over drying.
Regime: I use this in conjunction with Witch Hazel as toner, a few drops pure Grapeseed oil (yes, the kind you get in the baking aisle) as a moisturizer at night (good for hair, face, all over! Seriously IT WORKS. People comment on how soft and young my skin is all the time since I've been using it) and sunscreen went I go out during the day.
I use an aspirin mask every few days when I need to exfoliate.Read more ›
Many reviews that I have read have mentioned that the soap has an earthy smell to it that I didn't quite understand but now after using the soap I understand. The soap does have a really earthy smell that takes a little while to get use too but what's cool is that the smell doesn't stay on your skin once you've rinsed off the soap. The soap itself (if using like a little chunk as a bar of soap) is a bit gritty and if your skin is sensitive will almost feel like an exfoliating bar but what is also nice is that the soap almost has a waxy consistency so if you run it under the warm water it becomes almost melted and smooth and soft right away to be applied to your skin.
Major thumbs up to this product and my advice is to purchase and try the product for yourself. The 1 lb is nicely priced and it will last a really long time I can tell. Which in the long run will benefit my skin and wallet.
