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. April 11, 2014
blk bar soap Good smell ,Great cleaning, be nice if lasted longer. December 9, 2013
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. September 2, 2013
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!! August 26, 2013
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. August 8, 2013
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. July 3, 2013
I love using the Black soap, I have gotten my whole family and friends hook on it. June 28, 2013
Scent works for both me and my husband My husband likes the bar soap and I like making it into a liquid soap to use. Have bought many of these bars and will definitely buy more. June 13, 2013

Great! It was nice. Smelled Great. Did not irritate my skin. May 1, 2013

i love this soap it is bigger than the average soap and its suds very very well, like dawn dish-washing liquid, i love them also...its variety of smells is so great... March 27, 2013
great soap! My husband and daugher love this soap. They think it works better than much pricier face and body products they've tried. March 3, 2013
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. March 1, 2013
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. February 24, 2013
African Black Soap Leaves my face clean-removing all makeup residue. But does not dry my skin out like most soaps do. February 18, 2013
Nice surprise! I'd never heard of this soap. I did a search of natural soaps and stumbled on this. I liked the ingredient list and was impressed by the other reviews. We've been using it for over a week now. It's very gentle, lathers well, even without the usual lathering ingredients, smells nice, and doesn't seem to be drying. Only criticism is that as I used the soap, I noticed that it dripped gray when it landed on the tiles. I thought it might leave spots if allowed to dry on the tile, but I guess I rinse enough to keep that from happening, so I guess no problem. I plan to keep buying this soap. February 6, 2013
Very Mellow I love this soap. It doesnt over dry my skin and the scent is very mellow and earthy. January 27, 2013
Black Soap This soap is wonderful, it makes the skin so soft. My niece loves it too. I do need to leave it on a good drainage rack it lasts longer. December 23, 2012
I really like this product. I even used this soap as a shampoo and it worked beautifully on my grey hair. December 5, 2012
Loved it!!! It was a great buy. It lasted a good 3 months and im ordering 2 more. Great product at a great price!!! October 7, 2012
Great Soap that lathers well! On my third bar of this soap and purchased because Dr Oz recommended. My skin seemed dry from last winter so gave it a try. I have given a couple bars as gifts and they have said they liked it also. Love the smell and makes you feel really clean and really is for sensitive skin. September 26, 2012
Great Soap This is a very good soap with soft exfoliation effect, my wife and I liked equally, we are buying more of them September 21, 2012
