Non drying, great for sensitive skin

Fantastic scent, will be intense the first week but will mellow out after a while. Great on dry/oily combo skin, first product I've ever used and not had dried out skin after. ...Read complete review

Fantastic scent, will be intense the first week but will mellow out after a while. Great on dry/oily combo skin, first product I've ever used and not had dried out skin after. Also great for sensitive skin, rinses cleanly and will not irritate or inflame. Only con is that it can be a mess for the shower, staining white/light colored showers if you don't rinse the area regularly (but that can apply to any bar soap). Personally use this with a Clarisonic.

Side benfit: Found the box it comes in equally useful. Unfold it and stick it in the bottom of your trash bin below the bag, or behind a dirty clothes bin to freshen up the area.

I purchased this soap at my grocery store because I was looking for a moisturizing, all natural soap. I didn't realize it was the type of soap that leaves a disgusting squeaky residue on your skin. YUCK. Why would anyone want that? To me, the purpose of body wash or soap is to gently clean your skin while moisturizing... not clean and leave some horrible mystery film. Also, while I thought it smelled good when I smelled the bar dry, it smelled really weird like a wet cat in the shower. Needless to say, I am throwing it out. My quest for a bar cleanser that doesn't leave a residue continues!

Comments about Nubian Heritage African Black Soap, with Oats, Aloe & Vitamin E, 5 oz:

I had read great things about African black soap, and this was reasonably priced, so I gave it a try. The first time I used it, I was disappointed because it seemed to leave a sticky residue on my face when I rinsed it off. But aside from that, the soap is great. I have combination skin and occasional acne break outs, and I haven't had a single break out since I started using, and my dry skin spots seem to be evened out better. It doesn't overyly dry your skin out. If this brand comes without the oats throughout the bar (in a smooth formula) I would buy that instead because they don't seem to do anything to help. I will definitely buy this again.

    Comments about Nubian Heritage African Black Soap, with Oats, Aloe & Vitamin E, 5 oz:

    I have suffered with acne for most of my life and I am in my late 20s now. I used to have extremely bad breakouts especially on my chin and I thought I would never out grow it. I've been to two dermatologists and every time I went they would put me on antibiotics and topical creams. They would work up to a point, but NEVER clearing my acne. I was becoming desperate and was considering spending $300 on a cosmetic procedure to get rid of it.

    I saw an article about using African Black Soap for acne and I read the reviews so I decided to try it since I have tried everything else. Let me tell you it is working!!!! I have been using it for about a three weeks and the very first week I saw a change in my skin. I have yet to have any large size breakouts my skin is clearing and I have yet to use any of my medication from my dermatologist.

    I highly, highly, highly, recommend this product.

      Comments about Nubian Heritage African Black Soap, with Oats, Aloe & Vitamin E, 5 oz:

      This is the best black soap I've tried thus far. Definitely a great addition to my beauty routine! It doesn't leave my face as dried and harsh like the other brands. Yet I still feel my face is squeaky clean. I follow up with a face mask and Viola!

        I am not sure if this product is meant for certain skin types, I am fair skinned Caucasian and I have been using black soap for a while now and this particular one is my favorite. It smells nice and the bar lasts a long time unlike others that tend to "melt" from the moisture. I use it on my face with a brush and my body with a loofah and I use it every day it leaves my skin supple and keeps my face clear of blemishes, I swear by this product and plan to keep using for as long as it is available.

          I liked this better than the other popular black soap out there. This seemed to dry up my acne better than the other one did. I noticed a difference instantly. I love that it's versaitle as I use it on my body as well as my face. Would definitely recommend and purchase again!

                  This soap smells good and works wonders! I have oily/acne prone skin, and since using this soap my face has felt more firmer. I noticed a dryig action the first time I used it.
