I just received my order and after just one use my skin felt so clean and smooth but without that stripping feeling. Even though I was hoping the scent would smell more vanilla-y, I am still happy with the product. I can’t wait to order it again.


Very gentle on my eczema!

I normally use African Black soap in the form of a bar, but decided to use this particular product to try something new. I've been dealing with mild eczema breakouts for the past two or three years, and had grown accustomed to utilizing black soap to cleanse as well as to heal scarring. Although the bar soap could be a little tough for my eczema spots to handle, it still was pretty good at fighting back any new itchy spots forming on my skin. When I tried this product, I didn't experience any of the burning I normally did when using black soap. Alaffia's African Black Soap is clearly much gentler, but still effectively cleans my skin, offers the same healing effects, and also doubles as a GREAT facial wash. The only negatives I can say about this product is that I tend to need to use a lot to get a "fuller" effect", although this may be due to my own user preference and heavy handedness. I expected the smell to also be a little bit more vanilla-y, but the almond scent definitely overpowers it. All it all, I really enjoyed this product, and would definitely buy again!
