Scentless and perfect for sensitive skin!

When I first tried this black soap, I was very skeptical. Other black soaps have left my skin dry, tight, and once ” burned”. This black soap is gentle and leaves my skin feeling clean and moisturized. It doesn’t break me out and can be used all over.

This soap is the cleanest clean you were ever feel.

Wonderful product. All colors and skin types can use this soap. It’s actually a cleansure; not a soap. It’s good for your skin. Smooths texture, evens skin tone.

I enjoy the authenticity of the African black soap. I’ve tried other African black soap, but they were imitation soaps not the real deal. This soap helps with ance and get rid of dark spots on my face, neck and body. A little bit goes a long way and one heart shaped bar can last for more than a month or so. I’ve been buying soaps from your business for two and half years now. My whole family has seen great results from using this quality African black soap. As long as your business keeps offering this soap and affordable I will continue to purchase.

I have never tried this kind of soap before. It is amazing. I love it. I just ordered more. Makes my skin feel great! Just like the butters. They are wonderful as well.
TH (verified owner) –
No matter what type of skin you have you want this soap. I have pretty sensitive combination skin so I am always hesitant to try new products on my face, but I’m in my late thirties and it was time for a change. First wash and my face felt balanced and clean, but not overly dry. It just doesn’t leave any residue which I love. I can’t say enough good and exciting things about it just try it and you will be converted forever!
Disappointed. I like the smell and overall feel of the soap. However, I’m not a fan of the small pieces of shell that have caused scratches and cuts. I have to constantly look and pick pieces out of the soap.
aeosie (verified owner) –
Since my skin is dry and oils tend to lay on the skin surface, I’ve been hesitant to use black soap. But positive info prompted me to try it. Amazing!!! It leaves no residue on my skin like liquid soaps, just beads of water. This allows my skin to absorb the peppermint whipped shea butter as I apply it, locking in the moisture. It’s good for my hair and mild eczema as well. My hair shines and my skin is smooth and soft, not slightly oily. Really can’t say enough great things about black soap!!!
WhoByFire (verified owner) –
Today I purchased my 3rd bar of this soap. I have mild keratosis pilaris on my arms and the combination of this soap plus the whipped butters solves it. I had gone to a dermatologist a year ago and their only solution had been to suggest that I take prescribed medication before important events. Like Hell. I would rather cure it than just temporarily make the dots disappear. With the butters plus soap, its pretty much gone.

Second purchase of African black soap. Excellent for the face, keeps my skin clear and plays nicely with the mango butter I use to moisturize. Can be used as shampoo in a pinch as well

I’ve been ordering BGLH magic for more than a year, now. The quality of the products are amazing, however let me SANG about this Black Soap. This is NOThing like the black, black soap that you can get from a street vendor or beauty supply store. This here, is amazing! After ordering the butters, I figured I would try this soap. I ordered it with the plan to use it on my face, this mask wearing did a number on my skin. I initially purchased one and divided it into three pieces (gave a piece to my teen). I have her using this on her face, as well. This product lathers like you wouldn’t believe and it leaves your skin nice and clean. I had to place another order for multiple hearts.
Amanda (verified owner) –
I bought this because of the acne fighting properties to help clear up my back and it has done a phenomenal job within just a few weeks! Very satisfied!
Rosie Y (verified owner) –
I’ve been using it for almost 2 weeks and Love the smell, texture and lather. I give 3 star rating because my skin d has started to experience irritation. It gave me itch dry rashy skin on my neck and collarbone area. When i look closely I see bumby welt like scaring. I want it to work so well with me due hyperpigmentation and exfoliating benefis. I get ingrown facial hairs and pluck in between threading sessions. Over the years of nicking and cutting my skin has caused dark spots. I also purchased skin care products from another company that I am using the soap with. A few things could be going here (1) black soap too strong for me and/or (2) using it combined with those other skin items from Shea Terra oganics is a bit too much. So, i am must to do a process of elimination. I am going to stop will the new serums, face oils and lotions I bought and keep it simple. Wash with black soap, tone with rosewater and moistuirize with Eucerin. If that doesn’t work, then I will know the soap is the problem. I will more careful washing that area. I can be rough and neck area skin is thin. I will also apply some hycortisone and skin oinmet to help it heal. Funny thing is those marks are nit my face, just neck and collarbone. Has anyone experienced this?
Denise (verified owner) –
The best soap I’ve ever used. My skin is left gently cleansed and softened.
Felicia (verified owner) –
This soap is officially art of my daily cleanse. I also occasionally use it as a shampoo. It doesn’t strip my hair of healthy oils, but instead adds needs moisture.
Nina (verified owner) –
I am HOOKED on this soap. It’s helped my eczema, stretchmarks, and acne. It’s brightened and toned my skin (With the help of the butters). This is now my forever body/face wash. I will say though that it’s super drying for my skin but, once I tone with some rosewater and follow up with their butters my skin is glowing. I’m going to have to buy these 3 at a time and give them out as gifts too!
Kendra F (verified owner) –
Moving forward, this is the only soap I will use. Soft, silky and hydrating. My skin loves it! Do keep in on a soap dish or in a container to avoid temporary discoloration of your sink.
Rachelle (verified owner) –
The soap ! So soft, rinses nicely, it’s helped clear my sons eczema and keeps my 8 month olds skin perfectly soft!
All creams are heavenly, makes your skin silky soft, and there’s no toxic chemicals, just pure ingredients!! So glad we found this company! My son appreciates it so much!!

I watched a video from Leila on her use of African black soap and diluted apple cider vinegar as a skin cleansing regimen. I’ve been using it for to months and haven’t had any severe breakouts and my blemishes are fading. Thank you Leila for another great product and suggestion.
Denise Washington (verified owner) –
Just tried this soap and I love it. Used it in the shower and my skin felt smooth and clean without being dry. This is the first African Black Soap that I ever tried. Will def order more to use during the winter months with the whipped shea butter to keep my skin moisturized.
Alicia (verified owner) –
I started using African black soap 2 years ago but this is the best one I’ve ever used. It’s the creamiest, best lathering, and makes my skin feel so good. I love that these are small and easy to travel with too. I highly recommend this soap!!
chelsea (verified owner) –
I love this soap! It hasn’t significantly helped with acne for me (I still have some breakouts here and there) but I HAVE noticed how much brighter and smoother my skin looks and that the breakouts are much smaller and resolve so much more quickly with this soap. I definitely feel like this has helped shrink my pores, too. This is perfect to help me remove my makeup at night and refresh first thing in the morning. When using just on the face one bar can last you a good month or even more. Will definitely keep buying this soap!
feliciapdickerson (verified owner) –
This soap is my go-to full-body cleanser from hair to toes! It’s multi-purpose use makes it an ideal for my travel toeletries bag too (though the brown paper packaging does get a double take from TSA).
Gretchen (verified owner) –
Don’t waste your time ordering one or three. Buy at least six, and maybe even double that order!!! This soap is glorious and the heart shape makes me feel an extra layer of love beyond all the love that went into creating it! This will be the only soap in my house moving forward. Forever. Thank you.

I know one thing, my skin looks phenomenal and I am so happy about that. When you have had problem skin for so long, and have tried everything with the promise that this will work always led to disappointment. But Babbbyyyy once I started using the African Black Soap it has changed my life. Thank you so much for making this product!

When I tell you ladies and gentlemen how my skin took a turn for the fabulous, I am not lying. I am already a huge fan of the Bergamont and Sandalwood Blended Butters so I wanted to try the African Black Soap for my body. After one use I saw and felt a difference on my skin and since showering with it everyday, my skin is clearing up so beautiful. This is now a must in my arsenal!

Linda (verified owner) –
First time trying the black soap. I love all of the products previously purchased, so it comes at no surprise I would love this product as well. It definitely leaves my skin feeling clean but not dry like most body washes. For the past week, I’ve only used black soap and whipped vanilla shea butter on my skin and hair. Based on the results,
I don’t think I want or need to use anything else.
Again thank you for providing another great product to battle the Pacific NW weather.

This is my everything Siam, from the top of my head to the soles of my feet. My hair and skin loves this soap. My skin is smoother and brighter, my hair is softer and shiny, couldn’t ask for more from my soap. The Best.
Alice (verified owner) –
The first time I bought the African Black Soap it was to make shampoo for my children. They love it so much I reordered it again but this time it was for them to take baths with it. I guess the next time I order it, it will be to remove the scars from their skin. they love it but I have not tried it for myself yet.
Angelo (verified owner) –
I was a little skeptical when I opened the package but this is officially my new favorite soap. I would suggest that you keep it in some sort of a soap dish though. It doesn’t stain or anything but it would run down the side like all soaps do but it’s brown so it doesn’t look right lmaooo. But I *strongly* recommend this product.
Kila (verified owner) –
I use this soap on my body and I love it. It kind of stains the tub a bit that’s why I gave it 4 stars but it’s great! My skin feels clean and moisturized.
Alice (verified owner) –
I have not had the chance to use my African Black Soap yet, but I gave two of the bars to my two children and they love it. They thought that I made it because I have made them some African Black Soap shampoo. My daughter could not stop telling me how it made her skin feel. She says it is the best soap in the world so I guess this is the soap I will continue to order. It is now my time to try it out to see how much I will love it.
Kedra Carter (verified owner) –
This was my first time trying this product and I love it! I was apprehensive about doing so because I had a bad reaction after using the Dove brand that has shea butter in it years ago. Your product is great! I am currently expecting my first child and scents are one thing that I am VERY sensitive to. I had no issues using this soap. It crumbles a bit in the beginning, as expected, but I definitely will be purchasing more in the future.
Kedra Carter –
This was my first time actually trying this product and I love it! I was afraid to do so before because I have had a reaction to shea butter before in a different soap. It crumbles a bit in the beginning, which I expected, but I will be purchasing more in the future!
monadjackson (verified owner) –
Omg where do I start?! Lol! Well I was very hesitate to buy this because I have sensitive skin and I have very severe Nodule acne on my face so I was very worried about trying this as a face cleanser. It’s been 3 weeks and it hasn’t broke me out at all!! It’s very moisturing and doesn’t leave my skin dry or itchy. It has helped with my acne and dark marks. I use the African soap at night with the raw Shea butter from this site and I have noticed immediate results without spending a butt load on expensive products that don’t work and these are all natural. I’m so happy I tried it! I have a morning routine and a night routine since I go to dermatologist and let me tell you the night routine with the African soap is what has made a difference in my skin! Thanks Bglh!

On my recent review I meant to say I brought the some from somewhere ELSE and it irritated my skin. This one is great!
quinisha1994 (verified owner) –
This is some very good soap. I have had it one before but it irritated skin. I think possibly iy had other things in the soap than usual. But when i got this one it work fine on my skin. And I have recently made an order for another bar.
What can you say about this soap that has not been said already? Nothing. It’s really amazing, well priced and super cute shape. Makes a great shampoo.
Breanna (verified owner) –
This bar is literally great. I been using it for my face and the dark marks are fading. I am about to buy it again for the second time!!!

This was my 1st experience of real African Black Soap according to research bout others in stores. I’m liking it. My face is T zone so I do go ahead & use a tiny bit of my fabulous butters for the dry area. Then everything is just fine. I’m excited to see how much more improvement will come to my facial skin.
Candace J (verified owner) –
I previously purchased this in a single, but I loved it so much that I purchased a pack of 3. Great for acne, and thoroughly cleanses.
Osa (verified owner) –
This soap is the best. I have always had a good complexion but began to break out on my face when I moved to a new climate. I bought BGLH’s African Black Soap and it cleared up blemishes that were three years old. I’m a believer and will continue to buy the soap in bulk.
ViiEff (verified owner) –
I actually like this soap. I have used other brrands before. This soap does not have a strong parfum/fragrance smell to it. The soap does dry out my face but it’s nothing as I use the whipped mango butter on my face. The packaging and design is great as well! As soon as my ywo bars finish up, I will be ordering more.

This soap is removing stubborn, old blemishes. It also seems to be helping with whiteheads as well. It can be very drying. If I get too dry, I stop using for a day or so. I love this soap and will never go back to the artificial “black” soap.
Candace Johnson (verified owner) –
I love it! I’ve used more commercialized soaps in the past, but this one is perfect. Cleansing and slightly moisturizing too, which for acne-prone skin is oddly important. I’ll definitely be ordering again.

Sheila (verified owner) –
Hi BGLH Team, I received my black soap and amazing butters and I’m a very satisfied costumer. It’s wonderful on my skin and my husband loves it a lot. Being a man who is very skeptical about using all natural products and very stubborn about change, I thank you for making awesome products with so much love. My husband has fallen in love with your mango & shea blended butter. He said, “it makes my skin feel like a baby’s bottom.” And, your african pride soap is truly clearing up my facial contact dermatitis . I just have one question; how do I store the soap? Can I just keep it in my cabine in the containers they came in or do I need to store them in the fridge?
Black Girl With Long Hair –
Sheila this is so good to hear! You can actually leave the black soap in the bathroom like regular soap! Just don’t leave it sitting in water because it will disintegrate and/or get sticky/gummy.
krwashington28 (verified owner) –

I have suffered from acne, hyper pigmentation and body acne since I was like 11 and I’m 27 now. I’ve tried everything from Proactiv to Murad–I have never seen such quick results in my life. After my first use I saw such a huge change in my complexion and my overall skin. This damn soap is so damn good I’m angry I didn’t know about it sooner. Like, I’m pissed. I want to fight. I want to fight whoever sells the fake African Black soap, that is jet black because it’s really out here ruining the name of African Black soap. It is very drying as is the nature of the soap, but it fading my dark marks and brightening my skin. Just follow up with your toner and moisturizer and you’ll be more than fine. I’ll probably cry when I meet the owner–I cannot thank her enough.

Anita Bowman (verified owner) –
I was someone who thought I knew what black soap was and had already experienced how my skin react-while it cleansed well, it was very drying. But then I came across an article on this blog I believe with pictures of what real African black soap looked like! (and it’s not like those bars of Ambi) And so I ordered it and I am in love. After only one week of use my face has cleared up, my pimples are gone, and I even see some hyperpigmented areas on my face clearing up. This stuff is amazing and I like that I can use it on my entire body. Will definitely be buying more!

Sherri (verified owner) –
After placing my order, I patiently waited (constantly checking where my order was and if it had been delivered while I was not home). I was a bit skeptical about the product seeing that I had used black soap in the past and ended up with severe dry, itchy, hyperpigmented areas to my face that took forever to resolve. My package finally arrived sooner than I expected-impressed (I am VERY leery about sites and their estimated delivery dates). I used the soap that same night being very gentle with my cleansing technique along with the unscented whipped Shea Butter as my moisturizer. I am very impressed with the results after 2 weeks of use. My skin has cleared up, I am experiencing fewer breakouts, and my skin tone is more even. I do need to exfoliate for a much better response to the Shea butter, but overall, it is moisturizing my skin without the itching, greasiness and /or dryness that I have with other products. I am so glad I decided to try the black soap and unscented whipped Shea butter!

I have tried black soap before and was not a fan but then I saw BGLH sold it and just had to try it. I have been using whipped butters from BGLH for 3 to 4 months now so I knew the black soap would be awesome and it is!!! I’ve been using it for 2 weeks and I am loving it…Thank You BGLH😍
Jerrica Long (verified owner) –
Ok, so I bought this after seeing all of the reviews. I think the soap lasts about 3 weeks for me. So far so good. It’s made my skin super soft. I’m still waiting to see if it helps me skin become clearer (less dark spots) so far I’m not too sure but I’m going to give it more time. The product is small and I wish I would of gotten more than one since it took a while to get it.
Zaria Garrett (verified owner) –
This soap is great! I have been looking for a good black soap for a while and I think this one is the best. It doesn’t burn and it’s been about 2 weeks since I’ve been using the black soap. I can honestly say that I’ve been seeing improvement in my skin. Thank you!

I’m in love with African soap, my skin is super soft and blemish free, I have dry sensitive skin and can’t even use sented laundry soaps!!! I bought 3 bars, that lasted a little over a month and I just ended up buying 6 more lol. I will continue to buy this soap, its extremely cleansing and refreshing to my body. It does dry the skin but doesn’t irritate it, like the ones in the store because no matter what soap I used it always dries my skin but what makes this soap AMAZING is how great it helps my butters and coconut oil lather into the skin. Thats why I’m not bothered by the dryness!… I LOVE, LOVE,LOVE!
Rachel (verified owner) –
I used my African Black Soap for the first time this morning and I like the way it cleansed my body. The soap lathers well and the suds spread all over. My skin feels so clean and without any residue or drying of my skin! It is going to be replacing my Dove bar, that is for sure. By all means if your interested in protecting your beautiful melanin in your skin, you’ve got to use African Black Soap!

In September, I had a terrible breakout. There were pimples and small rash like bumps all over my face. As a teen, I didn’t have problem with ance or any type of breakouts. So, when I started having random breakouts, I freaked out. I tried different products and some worked for a while. But nothing seemed to work for the long haul. So, I posted a status about it on FB. My cousin replied immediately. She told me about bglh. I went to the website, unfortunately it was down in preparation for the store. So, I text my cousin. She mailed me a bar of soap and a bag of the Shea butter. I started using it immediately. I noticed a difference during the first couple of weeks. So, I placed a order for three bars. I have to keep a stash now. It’s a great product!!!

janet simmons (verified owner) –
I can go on all day about how essential this soap is, in addition to the optimal results I get with my skin, it is shaped like a heart the cutest thing ever. I have honestly tried other facial regimens and I found myself coming back to this soap, I am a loyal customer and will be solely using this soap thanks to how amazing my skin feels and looks. I just finished ordering 6 of these, I can’t wait to get them!
This ladies and gentlemen is the real deal legit black soap and not that literal black in color black soap that big brands try to fool the people with. SO thanks for keeping it 100% 🙂 I use this as a shampoo bar for my hair when I want a good clarifying wash and also on my face. My daughter and husband love too. BUT I want to make this clear as I had to learn the hard way if you have sensitive lady parts I would not suggest using any black soap as a body wash as it BURNS!!! Nobody ever told me and I don”t put soap directly there anyway but as nature would have it the suds will run down and make it to that area, not fun ladies not fun at all. Sorry for the TMI but hey each one teach one right 🙂

I love this African black soap for my face. It’s good for combination skin. The soap lathers nice and it leaves my skin feeling clean without over drying; good for clearing up acne. Also the heart shape is cute. Will purchase again!

This is my first time using African Black soap but I am really loving it so far. I’ve been using it for a week and it is already helping with my acne. The only problem was my container that the soap came in was completely cracked on the bottom.

I bought this soap for use on my face to get rid of dark spots and prevent blemishes, pimples, etc. and so far it’s been very effective. Like others have said, it leaves your skin feeling very clean and soft – my face has never felt softer (especially when I moisturize with a little raw African shea butter). I’m really happy with this purchase!

This soap didn’t disappoint. It doesn’t dry my skin or make my skin feel tight and I’m ordering more. I only wish the bar was bigger.

This African black soap works amazingly well on my face. Keeps it clear and soft! They knew what they were doing when making this a heart shape, it’s cute and irresistible.

Very good so far. I have a blemish on my forehead that is fading thanks to this soap! I purchased more.

I wish there were 10 stars instead of 5. I absolutely love this soap. I’ve been going back and forth with black soap and I’ve always hated it, it just wasn’t for me. But since I was buying the butter I thought why not give the soap a try and boy am I glad I did. I use it on all my kids and me and my husband and it cleans use and keeps our skin pimple and bumb free. I wish they made the soap in chips that way it would last longer

This soap is great! I ordered it once before and didnt think it did anything special. Mainly because I wasn’t using it that often. But I recently ordered a 3 pack and I am on my last bar after 21/2 weeks. My face feels and looks so much better! And my body feels soft and like its being exfoliated every time I wash up. It’s a great buy.

I have thoroughly enjoyed using the African Heart Shape Soap. It lathers well and cleans my skin without drying it. It is a natural cleanser as well as an antiseptic. I would recommend this product to my friends and family. #Iwillreorder

Amazing soap! I’ve never had problematic skin but I bought the soap to even out my complexion and of course cleanse I noticed a few zits here and there and what do you know? First night using this and some witch hazel and those babies were gone by morning and my skin was smooth! I love it. Will definitely order more.

I love this product. I use it with other ingredients as a shampoo. The only shampoo I use for my hair. I also cleanse my face with it.

Upon first use I noticed within a couple of days that my backne was beginning to improve remarkably well in a short span of time, immediately ordered the six pack which arrived just in time to continue treating my skin with out interruption. My face appears smoother and there is an overall softness to my skin with using this soap it’s the perfect beauty bar!

Absolutely love this soap! I have very sensitive skin & most soaps irritate leaving red welts or bumps or I’ll be itchy right after I use them. NOT THIS SOAP! Its awesome & I’m so glad I read up on it & gave it a shot. I use it on my face as well. It’s been three weeks & so far my skins loves #HeartShapedAfricanBlackSoap.
Don’t change the formula pleaseeeeee!!

I absolutely love this soap.! It lathered pretty well, more creamy than bubbly. The soap cleansed my face thoroughly, but didn’t leave it dried out as with other soaps I have used. I definitely will be purchasing again.

When it comes to my skin care facial the only thing I’d use to wash was with cetaphil. I wanted something natural to replace all those ingredients I would feed into my skin & boy was so glad to have chosen this! I love the smell and it gets the job done. Given the fact I don’t wear makeup, I tried it once 12yrs ago and now @ 30 I want my skin to be as healthy as can be. Once I’m done with the 3 that I have also moisturizing with the whipped cocoa butter, 6 hearts will be the next step. Thank you Bglh. 😘

I just started using this soap and it has made my face feel very soft. I am absolutely in love with the heart shape. It has a nice texture and smell, different from other “black soaps” I’ve used. I will continue to use in hopes of removing dark spots on my face and unwanted tiny pimples.
This was my first try at black soap and the three bars I purchased lasted well over a year. I had the cleanest, clearest complextion that I have ever had.
I recently purchased In bulk from a respected vendor but I have noticed that it is breaking out my skin horribly. Bglh’s version of the black soap, however, seems to treat my skin nicely. I will be coming back to you- please keep this in stock!

It’s all I use. By far the best soap I’ve ever bought.
This is real African Black Soap, not the stuff that’s sold in big box stores. It works wonders, and I’ll always get my future supply from BGLH.
First time using ABS, Im loving it, will be purchasing again
I am very pleased with the soap. Usually black soap from the local store is very drying and irritating to the skin. With this soap it provides the right amount of moisture without irritating my skin and it smells great. I highly recommend it.
i love how it makes my skin feel..the only thing is i wish it was a little bigger,,when i got down to the last little bit of soap it crumbled and went into the drain. I would prefer a regular rectangular shaped bar due to the fact i would like to gift this soap to some of my male friends. Other then that great product!!
My face feels soft, moisturized. I used a few days in a row but didnt notice a difference and referred back to my Neutrogena face cleanser. I will try again. Also its very fragile. Water will wash away the soap if your not careful.
Wonderful product. Very very pure. Cleared up blackheads and ingrown hairs in a few uses!! No scent, very foamy suds. Just awesome. Shipping was wry quick, despite my Order not being processed for about 4 days
I started using the African Black soap a month ago and I am fan! I purchased one just to give it a try and because of the reviews I read. I am so pleased with the results. My skin feels smoother and I can see old blemishes fading. I will recommend this soap to my friends and family for sure.
Second to none! Very potent, so only a small portion is needed per use.
i like the feel of my face it is soft i have a blemish on the side of my face and it is becoming lighter my grandkids teenagers and they have break-outs so i give them a piece. it is helping them to. i plan on buying more.
Soap feels nice and moisturizing.
I use this product at least once a day, sometimes twice, and immediately noticed that my face started to clear up. I suffer from breakouts along my jaw line that can at times be pretty painful/tinder to the touch. I was concerned that the soap was drying my skin, but it wasn’t really that bad. My face looks and feels much better. I will definitely consider buying these as gifts for friends.
I was in the store this morning and a white lady asked me what do I use on my face because my skin is so beautiful. I told her African black soap. She looked at me kinda strange. So I pulled up your website and showed her. Lol she said can I use the soap since it’s black lol. She had me rolling on the floor in laughter. Thought I would share that with you.
I ordered only one bar of this wonderful soap and that was not enough. Both my son and I wash our acne prone faces daily and it’s the bomb. Leaves our faces smooth and clean, no acne breakouts even when I should have them. I also use this soap and only this soap to clean my hair; I usually clean with a conditioning cleanser. My hair was soft and detangled with ease. I will be ordering a six pack very soon. By the way, the heart shape is great and the containers are wonderful for storage–can be reused multiple times.
I really love this soap. My skin feels wonderful !And I love that it’s heart shaped.
I brought this soap for myself as a face wash. I have used it in the past and it works best for me in removing makeup and keeping my face clear. It is drying but nothing moisturizer can’t fix! What I adore most is the shape it comes in. The heart shape keeps its shape even after several uses. The soap alone never looks too appealing (not to be gross but it can look like smeared poop on the sink counter) so the fact that it comes in heart shape makes it nice to actually keep out in the open! Great gift for others. At least my friends would adore the shape as much as I do.
I use Shea Moisture black soap.It’s good on my teens faces. Trying this product was a must and I liked it’s cute shape. It doesn’t have a smell to me and it lathers good. I’ll continue to use it and see what happens.
Great soap for my family. Nicely shaped like heart.
I’ve never used African black soap before, but I think I’m hooked now! The soap lathers nicely and leaves my skin feeling soft and refreshed.
