    I use both black soap and shea butter every day of my life for all of my cleansing needs. I keep a large bottle of this in my shower and I use this to wash my body, wash my face (to take off makeup and to cleanse), to wash my hair....it satisfies all of my cleansing needs. I have very sensitive skin, and often times scented body washes will break me out. I also wear my hair curly a lot and use quite a few products...washing with this soap keeps my skin clear, clean and moisturized. I have also tried every drugstore and high end acne product that can be purchased without a prescription and BLACK SOAP is the ONLY thing that consistantly works. My skin is near flawless, and my ONLY skincare products are Dr Woods soap (when i am traveling I use any organic black soap in a bar form), apple cider vinegar and water as a toner, and shea butter in the evenings before bed. Black soap totally changed my life. If you like the smell, i recommend to everyone.

    I read alot of rave reviews for this on both Vitacost and iHerb before purchasing, and I was positive that it was going to an effective, multi-purpose beauty product. But from day one, this was just wayyyy too drying for my skin! I thought it might take a bit to adjust to the effects, as others stated that mild acne was common in the first week or so of use. My skin stayed dry. I stopped using it on my face and have now stopped using it on my body. I used it as shampoo once but it did a poor job. This might be okay as hand soap in the in the summer, but otherwise my skin can't tolerate it. This would probably work wonders for those with very greasy skin and/or body acne, and for greasy scalps. It also has a very strong scent, so probably a no-no for sensitive sniffers as well. I did feel remarkably clean after using it- "squeaky clean" in fact. But we now know that if your skin squeaks, it's because all your natural oils have been removed. Bummer!

      Comments about Dr. Woods Shea Vision, Pure Black Soap with Organic Shea Butter, 32 fl oz:

      I love this soap. For your face you don't need much. I dilute just a few drops on my washcloth. It smells wonderful and it's not as drying as other soaps. I also have sensitive skin and it doesn't irritate, even with the natural scented oils in the ingredients so the scents must be minimal (scents can sometimes bother me).

        Comments about Dr. Woods Shea Vision, Pure Black Soap with Organic Shea Butter, 32 fl oz:

        I'm a little disappointed with Dr. Woods. I am used to their products having natural, mild scents. This one has a very strong, soapy fragrance. It really smells like a man-made chemical, but the label says the fragrance is "natural." I believe that, but it is much too offensive for my sensitive nose. Overall, it's a great product, but in the future, I'll stick with Dr. Woods' almond liquid castile.

            Comments about Dr. Woods Shea Vision, Pure Black Soap with Organic Shea Butter, 32 fl oz:

            This is a great natural product for sensitive/acne prone skin. The fragrance is pleasant, not strong and not artificial. It doesn't lather up the same way commercial body washes do, so I end up using more of it than I would one of those, but I still prefer it. I mix it with a tea tree wash from Dessert Essence in a separate bottle and use it as my daily wash. It's refreshing and it won't over-dry sensitive skin. It's also helped clean up some of the breakouts I get on my back and shoulders. Overall, good stuff.

              Huge bottle will last me for months. Use it at least twice a week for hair and body. On the bottle it says it can be use for household cleaning, I will be using it as such soon.

                    I use this as a facial cleanser every night. Sometimes as a body soap, too. I love how it has cleared my skin and gives me a daily glow. I researched lots of cleansers for acne before I found this. All the gadgets that exfoliate, and all the products that promise this or that. I went with this soap and now it's one thing I can't go without now.

                    It may sting a little bit on any scratches or zits that have been picked at, but nothing too painful. It seems to go on a bit slick, but then as it rinses off, you feel squeaky clean.

                    I will never again pay up for expensive (or bargain) cleansers. I've poured a little out into small bottles to let friends sample. One uses it for her rosacea, and another swears it has cleared up her acne, too.

                    My skin loves this stuff. I don't know if it would work for everybody, but everybody i know that has tried it loves it, too.

                    I like this product. I have purchased black soap bars in the past, but they stain very badly on bath cloths. This one washes away clean. You might have some minor itching right after shower but it doesn't last. The smell isnt bad either. I was kind of surprised that it was a thin liquid. However even then, you don't have to overuse it. It spreads well. Since you can use it to wash hair, I tried it once. It wasnt bad. Just make sure to use a decent conditioner afterwards. I plan to purchase this again.
