I absolutely love black soap and was pleased when I made the discovery. I thought I would share it with my fellow beauties!
Has anyone else tried it? What do you think?

What kind do you mean? I've used mixed chicks soap in sweet pea and it is awsome. And 100% vegan.
African black soap its made of extra virgin olive oil, bark ashes and shea butter. It's so wonderful for cleansing every type of skin! x

I have tried it. I also LOVE it. My skin seems so much softer. I have not been using it for long. I hope that over time I will see an improvement in my complexion :-)
I use black soap as well! But I use a soap bar from One Hand Washes the Other. Their Black Magic Soap made a huge difference in my skin's complexion and helped a lot in reducing my breakouts and if I did break out, getting rid of any spots as quick as possible.
I've been battling acne problems for about 6 years and I am so glad I discovered African Black Soap a couple years ago! It works wonders for my sensitive/combination skin. My acne isn't completely gone; I still break out every now and then, but this soap has reduced my breakouts tremendously! It leaves my face really clean and taut. Another thing I love is that it brightens my complexion, giving me a youthful glow! I highly recommend it to those with eczema and acne-prone skin, like me!

Yesss, I went into a hair shop today and saw some but I didnt know which brands to trust I will defo give Akoma a try. Thanks xx
I just read your blog posts and purchased my bar. You know they have a liquid form right, just in case you havent seen it yet. Thanks so much, I hope it battles this skin of mine!!!
Haven't tried it but I keep hearing amazing things about it. Think I'll grab some when I run out of my "Purity" by Philosophy. Probably less expensive, I'm sure.

i have been using black soap for about 3 weeks now and i, and everyone around me, have noticed a huge change in my extremely sensitive, acne prone skin. i got mine at an african market that i found in NYC, its no name as is most of the products they sell because it is all made in ghana and flown in to sell at markets. it was $2 for a lb of solid soap which is a hell of a deal compared to coastal scents lb of soap for $13.
it hasnt completly cleared up my face but it definitly has cleared about 80% of acne. i love this soap so much that i have thrown out all other products (proactiv, neutrogena, olay, noxema, clinique, etc). i have also noticed that my old acne marks have lightened and i use less makeup than i used to in order to cover acne marks.
black soap is the only soap i use now twice a day in combination with clinique dramatically different gel. my skin hasnt looked this good since i was in hs and i def recommend this soap to anyone who is dealing with acne and is frustrated with spending so much money on products that never work.
i cant say enough about this soap, i just love love love it. i am 28 and have never had acne until my 20s and i was so stressed out trying to find a regimen that worked for me. i have spent so much money on products and im amazed at how a $2 soap has been the only thing to work for me. granted your skin dries out the first week but that is the worst of it.
i cant wait to see what my skin looks like in another 3 weeks

I know I'm kind of late in this post, but does African Black Soap help with acne scars? I have a lot on my face and nothing seems to help.
Dec 20, 2011
Dee it does!!! i have been using it and its really helpin!
Would the Black and White black soap from sally beauty be the same thing?
Dec 21, 2011
I have used it off and on, and I can definitely tell a difference in my skin its more smoother and hydrated. I recommend it! :)
It does help with acne scars. It fades them dramatically.
I've been using this for a few weeks and it hasn't completely faded them but they are lighter. My skin is olive and acne would leave purple marks which is have to cover everyday. I swear now I only use bobbi brown concealer under my eyes (black soap doesn't work for under eye circles. Wish it did) and I use MAC studio fix powder and that's it.

I've used this before, I remember buying a pound of it from some African's stall at a market, just like one of the above poster's mentioned--there was no brand name, it was just wrapped up. All I remember about African Black Soap was that I actually NOTICED the change (softer, brighter and clearer skin) and I remember the smell was sooo nice!! ..the only thing I don't remember is where exactly I picked it up..lol

I've used African black soap for many years. It's a favorite of mine. I prefer the Dudu Osun African black soap bar.

I adore black soap....just ordered a huge brick from Amazon. It lasts so long! Great for washing your face..I also use it to wash under my arms, it helps my natural deodorant do the job!
