      An African-American friend and a Latino friend both told me about this soap. I am a white guy with psoriasis and nothing works. This helps a ton. It lathers up nice, and I use it for both skin and hair. It controls the dandruff too. I have blond hair that is turning white, and it does make my hair a little bit more brown looking, if that makes any difference. Not enough to notice.

      I like the bar a lot better than the body wash -- more lather and rinses cleaner.

      I also like the same brand's Shea Butter Hand Creme with Frankincense and Myrrh. I use that on the psoriasis spots. I like the hand creme 8 oz. version, not the bottle 13 oz. version. The bottle version is too thick to squeeze out of the bottle. The hand creme is still thicker than any lotion I've ever tried, but it is workable.

      This is amazing and has really helped me. My old white male dermatologist was skeptical and wanted to prescribe more steroids, but this stuff is borderline miraculous.

            I have dry skin and always use a moisturizer after baths, so I cannot say how effective the soap is when it comes to this. But I love the way it lathers and leaves a clean, fresh feeling.

              Comments about Nubian Heritage African Black - 5 Ounces Bar Soap:

              I developed a severe acne outbreak with no history of acne ( except for the usual pimple or two during my menstruation) about three months ago. During these three months I've tried a few products for my acne and quickly lost hope each month as I fail to see a change. I've heard a lot about African black soap but I never gave it a try until now. I am a dark complected African-American female so it is very rare that blackheads are visible on my skin so this out break was overwhelming and left me desperate. It's been two weeks since I started using Nubian Heritage African Black Soap. I use it twice a day ( once in the morning and at night) This soap has a good smell and leaves my skin feeling soft ( not dry as I anticipated). My acne has decreased tremendously and the marks that were left behind are fading. So before you waste money on expensive products that may disappoint, please try this soap first. There is hope with this soap!

                Comments about Nubian Heritage African Black - 5 Ounces Bar Soap:

                I was searching for a natural soap that smelled good. I found the Black Soap. I use it to wash my body and face. After using it for a few weeks I realized that my dark spots were lightening and my complexion was more even and healthy looking. I started using the Mango Butter exclusively to moisturize my face, neck, and lips. In the morning, after I dry and straighten my hair, I rub a tiny amount of Mango Butter in the palms of my hair and run it through my hair. It helps hold the style, makes my hair look healthy and helps to hold my style without a greasy or lacquered down look. I was so impressed I bought a bar of the Black Soap for my 24 year old daughter who gets somewhat painful breakouts on her chin. When I purchased the soap I struck up a conversation with a young clerk. She said she uses the Black Soap and Black Soap Lotion. She said her face doesn't break out anymore. This young woman had a lovely complexion. She explained that my daughter should wash her wash with the Black Soap, rinse with cool water to close the pores and moisturize with the Black Soap Lotion before bed. Your face can do a lot of healing while you are sleeping. About a week after I sent the products, I called my daughter to see how it was working. She said her face "felt so good". Her complexion is almost completely healed now. My daughter said she will only use Nubian Heritage products on her face from now on. She is happy with these products and so am I. I also give Black Soap as gifts.

                    This soap is remarkable! I have dry sensitive skin and never would have used a bar soap on my face, but I moved into a new house, couldn't find my Neutrogena cleanser, and thought oh what the heck, won't kill me to use it once or twice on my face. SURPRISE, my skin has never been BETTER. Totally amazing. Breakouts cleared up, GREAT exfoliant, my skin feels fantastic, SO soft and smooth. WOW. Doesn't overdry either.

                    We have used this soap for 6 months and love it. We primarily use fragrance free / dye free chemical free body care products of pure quality due to skin sensitivities. This product far surpasses anything we've experienced to date - and we are in our 60's and practice healthy living. We use this soap in the showers, tubs and bathrooms sinks for all over use. The natural fragrance is very pleasing, the soap lathers easily. I enjoy the exfoliating qualities this soap offers. It is like giving your entire body a gentle facial daily. I had dry skin during the winter months, especially on my legs. Also, I had a rash occasionally on both forearms. With the use of this soap, my rashes went away and I no longer deal with dry skin. I have talked to other people who use it for oily skin and it seems they also have a favorable experience and love this soap. We use this product exclusively and highly recommend it.

                    Comments about Nubian Heritage African Black - 5 Ounces Bar Soap:

                    I have been using African Black Soap for three weeks, and I am pleasantly surprised at the results. I have had eczema for 32 years if not longer. It used to be a seasonal condition, but as I got older I have suffered all year round. Dove for sensitive skin has been my soap of choice until now.

                    After reading the reviews on this site, I purchased a soap dish and placed in my shower above the shower stream. This dish has openings at the bottom which allows water to drain out and keeps my soap dry so I'm not using a bar a week.

                    Now on to the product, the soap has a pleasant smell. It gave me a squeaky clean feeling that I've only experienced on my face before. I use my soap on my face and body. After two days, I noticed that I wasn't as itchy as I was before. After a week, my old wounds were healed. I do more scratching when I am asleep, and I have had no new wounds in three weeks. My neck and chest are clear and my old scars are starting to fade. My skin had been discolored because of continued use of prescription eczema medications. I've only had to use my medication two or three times and that was on my hands. I've been oiling my skin with jojoba oil as soon as I get out of the shower to prevent dryness.

                    Nubian Heritage has got a customer for life, and I have given away a bar so a friend can test this fir herself. When you've had a condition for as long as I have, you don't expect miracles, but this product has been a miracle for me. I can exercise now without scratching myself silly when I sweat. I am a happy and satisfied customer!

                      I bought 16 bars of this. I've used 4 bars in 4 weeks in my face and body as well. But then, I noticed that my skin reacted too differently compared to the effects that other users have said. I found my skin to be rough, dry, and getting darker. I stopped using it because my husband told me so. It might be a good bar but not effective to me.

                        Great smell and cleaning. Surprised to find I could use from head to toe. Ran out of shampoo and used the soap that worked, lathered and rinsed the same. This is now the only soap I use. Have ordered many times. Great product.

                            I've been using this product for more than 2 weeks now. I noticed that my skin became more clear and smooth. I use it as my face and body bar. This bar soap is really amazing. I felt so loved and dearly. For me, 1 bar lasts for 7 days. So I've decided to buy more, 16 pieces of this because I want to share it with my husband. I'm gonna share it also with my 7 months old baby when she grow up, hehehe! I am very thankful I've found this bar online. Thank you Nubian Heritage.

                              I originally bought this soap to use on my face but I totally fell in love with the smell and I now use it on my whole body. It makes my skin feel sweeky clean. It's alittle costly to use on your whole body but if you want your face to feel totally clean, I recommend this product.

                              I guess I'm the only one but this soap didn't work amazingly for me. I actually think it's drying my skin out. I thought that it wouldn't but it definitely makes my face dry. I still use it because it does smell great and it is a natural soap and it does get me clean but I use it carefully on my body with warm water to prevent my skin from becoming too dry.

In just a couple of weeks, my combo oily skin looks cleaner, clearer, and healthier. Beautiful fragrence, no drying and just great. Love this company.

                                    After listening to reviews I decided to try this soap. I was looking for something to help my 3 daughters that have eczema so I gave this a shot. I am very pleased with this product! My daughter told me today she wants me to buy more. Their skin is so soft and smooth. I use it also all over. I love the smell and it cleans very well. Our complexion has even gotten lighter and it smoothed out some rough areas on my skin. Highly recommend this product. I also purchased the matching lotion.

                                    In my opinion, this is the best soap for a person with exzema. It doesn't dry or tighten your skin, it has a pleasant scent, very relaxing and nourishing to the skin. it makes your face feel as if it's been wrapped in silk.

                                    The only con to this soap is that it leaves a grey/black residue when wet. but a little extra rinsing and or cleaning is well worth the award of using this brand soap!highly recommended to those of all races

                                      I love this soap because it's appropriate for both my hubby and myself. The scent is warm yet clean, and seems to take on a different tone from person-to-person. It can be used as a facial soap as well as body bar, without fear of drying out skin. I haven't experienced any magical turnarounds with my skin while using this, but I can tell that my husband's back is clearer. It's still a great all-around bar even without a miracle. The only downfall is that the residue it leaves in the tub is not only dull (like other soaps), but dark as well! Oh well- just stay on top of that tub scrubbing.

                                        I'm in my forties and still have an occasional acne break out. I was looking for a soap that would clear and help prevent acne break outs. I love this soap and the smell is great too. It leaves my face feeling so soft and clean and it clears my skin.

                                          I am 46 years old and have tried practically every facial cleanser out there and have yet to find the one that I could not do without, until now.... Nubian Heritage's African Black Soap Bar is beyond anything I had ever hoped for in a cleanser. It deep cleans, heals, soothes, and leaves my skin feeling soft, firm,and clean. I have combination/sensitive skin that is prone to breakouts. After having a pretty bad reaction to something that left my face a mess, I though I would give this soap a try. Within 3 days, my skin looked so much better and smoother. It has a wonderful creamy lather that does not sting irritated skin. And the smell of it is heavenly... I use it in the morning and at night. I follow up with witchhazel and that's it. My skin is no longer oily in some areas and dry in others. It just feels smooth and clean. I think my pores even look smaller :) This is my permanent facial cleanser for now on. This is the one I could not do without...

                                            I have combination skin that is prone to breakouts, and since washing my face with this, I have experienced a much better balance in my complexion. My skin seems much calmer.I use it as a pre-rinse if I am experiencing breakouts, to remove makeup beforetreating with stronger medicated washes, and I use it alone to wash my face in the morning. I am pretty blown away, as I did notexpect much from a bar soap.

                                            I love to use it for body as well.... I lather up with it and use along with my clarisonic. It rinses well without that tight feeling or sticky residue other soaps tend to leave behind. It does leave marks on white towels that are sort of grey tinted if you don't fully rinse your face well before drying. It washes out just fine in the laundry, though. I will continue to purchase!

                                              I have occasional breakouts on my neck,chest,& back. I saw a Dermatologist who said it was hormonal & gave me a prescription, which did nothing but irritate my skin. This African Black Soap is fantastic!!! My skin has cleared up & not only does this bar smell great, it doesn't irritate my skin. Although I love this product, it is a tiny bit drying, so I don't recommend using it all over your body. I also purchased the African Black Soap Body Wash, which smells even better than the bar. My husband also loves these products. Definately will be re-purchasing!!! And did I mention, less expensive than a Dermatologist!!!

                                              Best Answer: It's good to go no complaints I bought this product several times but I like to change it up I will buy again. One thing if your not OCD or anal the soapy film is black but cleans right up just thought I mention that, no biggie to me.

                                              Best Answer: I don't have eczema, but my skin can be very sensitive & dry especially around this time of year. I have not had to discontinue using this soap, and in fact after I finish the other bars of soap I will go back to using this one exclusively. I highly recommend you try it.
