My skin is very sensitive (reacts to everything) and i only wash my face at night (my dermatologist told me to do that. We have a tendency to OVERWASH our faces and make them dry and dehydrated). I don't tolerate much, so this is a godsend. My skin is oily on the T-zone and normal elsewhere. I have a few sun spots, large pores around the nose et on the forehead, and tiny wrinkles (i'm …Read more

I emailed them a question regarding the safety of purchasing back soap of Africa during Ebola outbreak. They replied to tell me I should do my own research. This type of customer service is very worrisome .

Nice organic and natural soap. I didn't see anything miraculous or different from using it. It's a very earthy smelling soap and suds nicely. It does make you squeaky clean and does it in a weird way.

What I mean is, I didn't feel stripped of moisture. Just clean and fresh. I am unsure if I would buy this again, it's not anything special for me.

Been using this brand for about 3 years now. It worked soo well for me and still does. However, last night I found a huge finger nail in the soap as I tried to wash my face. I am so disgusted now and don't know what to do. I guess I will have to switch to a different brand.

This is a review for the Coastal Scents African Black Soap in the liquid form. It comes in a big bottle with a flip lid, and is absolutely paraben free. My hair is very dry, but my scalp gets greasy very quickly. I often find my hair looking very stringy near the roots area the day after a shampoo. Because my hair is so dry, I don't like to shampoo frequently, but I have to because of my …Read more

I'm 52 and had been using a lot of glycolic products, but my pores were gigantic. Was cutting back on glycolics and also using argan and maracuja oils. The oils helped with my pores, but they were still a little big. Completely eliminated glycolic cleanser and used the African black soap instead. My pores shrunk! I have been using it for six months now and stocked up when Coastal Scents …Read more

This stuff dried me out so bad! I tried it for a week and I had to stop using it because it literally sapped my skin of moisture. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone! Horrible!

Winter is in full force.
It came in like a lion and caught me off guard.
My skin ended up cracking and bleeding.
Awful!!!
I had to go back to my toxic chemicals to fix it in a flash.

I wish OCM would love me.
I really do.
Because I love it.
And it is easy, beautiful, simple and safe.
And I adore lavender around my nose bc it calms me and …

This is specifically for the NUNA black soap...

I was so excited to try this soap because of the good reviews. And I must say, I am still amazed by how this actually lathers up really nicely.

Moving on, I decided to try this on my face, body, and my hair.... not such a great idea.
I haven't used it very long... but from the time i've been using it (a few days …

This is for NUNA Unscented Black Soap by Coastal Scents. It was a great value for around $3. It came packaged in a white plastic bag inside of a labelled box.


When first using this soap I noticed my face felt clean but also soft, not overdried at all. It had a smooth texture after rinsing unlike with my other cleansers. I used this both with and without a face brush (Olay Pro-X) …
