Rated 5 out of 5 by from rinses clean This soap is by far the best I've ever tried, and I've tried many! It rinses clean and leaves skin very soft!!! Love, Love , Love...:) Oh, and one more thing, it is very long lasting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from You either love the smell or hate it My husband and I have a long-running argument about this product. He loves the smell and I hate it (I think it smells like circus peanuts candy). We have taken to polling friends who visit our home and the vote is tied, so far. As far as soap goes, it is fine. It gets you clean, but it does leave some scum in the shower which is particularly noticeable because of the color. The biggest problem is how quickly the bar wears down.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Be aware... Heavily scented If you like a heavily scented bar of soap, then you'll definitely like this. However, I do NOT. I make it a point to buy things that are unscented or low-smelling. I bought this for my husband who likes it, but I'll be happy when he uses up the 2 bars I bought him because these STINK!! They don't smell woodsy at all. They smell like grandma's awful bathroom smell. Very much like women's perfume. I have a 10' x 5' bathroom and I can smell it immediately when entering. YUCK!! I previously bought him some imported raw black soap (in chunk form) from someone on eBay and I like that MUCH better. NO heavy perfume smell. I personally use Dr Bronner's castile soap as a body wash. It works SOOOO much better than bar soap. It lathers like crazy and it comes off very easily when rinsing. (This black soap does NOT) It also doesn't make a mess in the soap dish/side of tub.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from black residue So obviously this is called Black Bar Soap and it is a good soap. The problem is soap scum on the sink and bathtub. Naturally when you lather the soap bubbles drop into the sink and tub. Unfortunately, unless you clean very well you are left with ugly, dirty looking black soap scum. Otherwise it's nice soap, but that is a deal breaker for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great stuff this soap work great to help my skin look and feel nice and smooth. i will not be using another soap ever to wash my face from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from all time favorite soap!! I use several Nubian products and have never been disappointed. This soap smells both clean, but leaves a subtle scent after. Might be a bit strong when you smell the bar, but it doesn't linger that way., It cleans wonderfully, rinses easily and really does moisturize a bit,. I don't feel any soap can take the place of lotion but in summer heat, this is great. One thing about black/charcoal soaps they can leave a really messy buildup in the shower. This one does NOT. Keep it on a sponge away from the shower spray and any soap residue on the shower rinses easily if you aim the nozzle at it or throw some water on it. I'm amazed at how long it lasts since so many good soaps just don't hold up., That and the price simply can't be beat. So worth trying!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for problem or oily skin! My teenaged daughter absolutely loves this soap- it helps keep her skin clear and smooth. I personally find it to be too drying for everyday use; it's fine for washing my face but I prefer to use a different Nubian Heritage soap for the rest of my body.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does the job. This soap is very unique it that it leaves your skin feeling very healthy. After a few times of use I felt like my skin was less itchy and just felt better overall. It has a nice scent to it... the soap does last for a while, my only gripe is it is a little bit on the expensive side, but Swanson does still give you a good deal on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great soap! My husband and daugher love this soap. They think it works better than much pricier face and body products they've tried.
Date published: 2013-03-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best soap ever. My husband and I both really love this soap. It smells fantastic and does not dry your skin out at all. I first heard about it on Dr. Oz and decided to give it a try when I saw that Swanson's offered it, and at such great price (notice that the bar is 5 ounces while most are around 3.5 ounces). Well, I was not disappointed for sure, but rather extremely pleased with such a nice product. Also, a small amount goes a long way. It makes your water seem like it's the softest it could ever be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this soap Great soap! The smell is beautiful and it's not nearly as drying as some other body washes I've used. I use the bar directly on my skin because the oat kernels feel wonderful. It's like getting an all-over-body back scratch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from African Black Soap Leaves my face clean-removing all makeup residue. But does not dry my skin out like most soaps do.
