Ouch….

A couple years ago, I used this soap with great results! I think it helped w/ my moderate acne.I just went back to this soap a few days ago, and I tell you…I wish I hadn’t!My face is horribly dry, it hurts! I have dry patches & irritation.I still believe it helps calm acne, but I don’t want to go through this discomfort anymore.I’m going back to Neutrogena’s purifying facial cleanser.

Drying – tallowate – no thanks!

Tallowate with glycerine to attempt to offset the dryness. I really don’t like tallowate in my products (google it). This is drying. I do like the liquid version in the pump.

Best soap ever, clears my milia! Highly recommended.

I have been using this soap since I was 40. My skin was oily. I am much older, and my skin is now part oily part normal; Purpose BAR soap still keeps my skin clean and clear, not dry. This year, I developed terrible milia (tiny bumps) on both cheeks when I started using Cerave gentle skin cleanser. My friends noticed the bumps. I went back to Purpose BAR soap and after TWO days, the milia cleared! Reading the low-rating reviews for Cerave, I learnt from a reviewer that the ingredient glycerin causes milia. Purpose BAR soap has glycerin listed as a 4th ingredient, and Cerave lists Glycerin as 2nd ingredient. I now use a face moisturizing cream with little or no glycerin after washing. So, if your skin is normal, oily or semi oily, or milia prone, use this bar soap.The LIQUID Purpose gentle cleanser wash has ingredients different from those of the Purpose bar soap. I don’t use it.

OMG!

This soap is down right amazing. Serioiusly. My skin (face and body) suffers from hyperpigmentationn. If I get a scratch, I have a dark mark for months. If my knees and elbows get irritated by my clothing ( my military uniform mostly) the skin will turn very dark, almost black. I have struggled for years to keep my skin tone even. I have been using this soap for two weeks now and I wish I had taken a before and after shot. My face looks like I am wearing make-up, I swear! I have a golden tone to my skin and the little dark areas (from irritation) are gone! My body is getting the same way…golden warm brown. You do have to let the soap sit on your skin for a little bit (30 sec to a minute) and you will feel a tingle. Even those unsightly hair-bump marks from years of shaving the bikini area instead of waxing (which I do now) looks so much better. I am convinced that in a few weeks, I will have no hyperpigmentation problems. And it makes your skin super soft too!

So far good

You have to be very careful with this brand of kojic acid because it is extremely powerful and will burn your skin. I have used other brands that takes longer to feel working but this one you can feel right away. I recommend not even using this as a daily bath soap but maybe a facial soap? I have used it on my face for a week now and so far my skin looks really good, nice, and a bit lighter. Sometimes I use this with another brand of skin whitening soap (Exremely Glo) that is also extremely powerful and have made me really ghost white but when I tried mixing with this, my complexion seemed a little off. Maybe it’s a negative chemical reaction? Anyway, this is a really good soap but please be careful. It will really burn you.

Excellent soap

It’s bitterly cold and dry this winter – no news, I know – and I was noticing that after showers I was feeling even more itchy and dry than usual. I use Cetaphil liquid soap to wash my face, Cetaphil lotion for moisturizing face and body – so I thought I’d give the bar soap a try in the shower before I dried up and vanished from the face of the earth before Spring. I bought it, I used it, have used it for a week now, and it’s made a big difference in how comfortable my skin feels. I’m very happy I finally tried the bar soap, and I have no plans of switching back to my previous soap (Ivory) in bath, shower, or next to the sink for handwashing. Great brand, Cetaphil, and I’ve no qualms at all at recommending it to anyone and everyone. Also: this Cetaphil bar soap, fragrance wise, is either fragrance free or if it does have added fragrance, I can’t discern anything and I’m super sensitive to fragrances, so if you prefer no fragrance in your soap for whatever reason, you can rest assured that this soap won’t bother you in that regard, either.

Great for Acne Sufferers!

I feel my acne is based on high sugar consumption and using wrong products.I don’t know why I ventured into liquid cleansers because those typically aren’t the best for my skin. Also, a certain moisturizer broke me out with big bumps. Additionally, I was eating a bunch of chocolate and other junk food. Tsk, tsk.SO! I dumped the liquid cleansers, specific moisturizer and heavily decreased my sugar consumption.I added this soap for my cleanser & Yes to Carrots moisturizer.I can’t tell you how quickly this soap cleared my skin. Amazing! I’m sure my change of habit/product use also helped!I’ve used this soap about 12 times now, and my face is 70% clearer than from 4-5 days ago. Seriously!I REALLY encourage those who suffer from acne to give this a try. I say, don’t bother with the peroxides and acids. Keep it simple and try to pinpoint other factors that may contribute to acne.This last breakout hurt because I’d JUST gotten my face back to normal after another bad breakout months before. Back to square one, I thought!Believe me, I know how difficult, painful and annoying this all is.But hang in there.I hope this helps!Thanks!x

Creamy Cake of Clean for your Face and Body

You can believe all of the praise for this "soap" as it’s true. Super gentle, crazy creamy and no fragrance or extra junk that’s in most soaps and liquid cleansers. I use it on my face and bod and look forward to it everyday. Great feeling, clean rinsing. Recommended by my dermatologist. I figured that if it can be used for infants with eczema and be that gentle and effective, it can do nothing but good for the rest of us. Amazing product. I also use the lite lotion for a super fine veil of moisture wherever I need it.

OK

Not as great as anticipating : ( Moisturizes ok. Smell is not the best, but isn’t that bad like others make it seem. Will keep using it and the rest that came in the box (you get a lot of them). You may still need to use another different bar of soap because this one ONLY moisturizes. I use a normal deodorant and this soap wont clean it off your body.

My crazy sensitive skin likes this a lot and it cleans wonderfully

My dermatitis acted up again earlier this month, and while I’ve used Cetaphil and Aquaphor and Dr. Bronner’s, I was so insane with itch that a friend recommended I find an olive oil soap (without coconut oils, as I’ve been using “natural” hair products with a lot of coconut oil and derivatives and it was possible I’d developed a sensitivity). In searching, I happened upon this brand and decided to order and try it.It’s really gentle and leaves my skin soft, smooth, and non-itchy (the last being hugely important to me). It does have a strongish olive oil scent, but not a perfumey one. Makes sense it smells like OO, no? Some find this offputting, but it doesn’t linger. You smell it while showering, but not after. I’d also add that this lathers discreetly, but adequately and nicely. It’s not sudsfest, but enough to know you are getting some surfactant action going and getting off the dirt and grime (if you’re grimy, hah).My rash is gone and I’m now ordering more of this. I don’t use it on my face, which is the most sensitive part of my body. I still use the Cetaphil on that (and the Kinerase Gentle Cleanser when I have makeup to take off). But for the neck down, this has been great.It does have a slippery feel, but not slimy as another commenter posted. At least in my opinion. I had ordered my original bars from iHerb on sale, but this is a competitive price for the 12-pack, so I’m ordering this one. Hope they don’t mess up and send me the scented. I can’t use that one.Update: Well, I found a saponified OO soap bar I like as well, if not better. It’s a Greek OO one and it REALLY is unfragranced (ie, Olivella has a stronge OO smell to it, very vegetal one might say). It’s called ApteraOlive Oil Soap – 4.3 ozand I give it a slightly higher thumbs up than Olivella for being really fragrance free and even LESS sudsing action–which prolly means gentler. Ordered a dozen this AM from Mother Nature, which also sells it through amazon for those who hate the OO smell of Olivella and those who want a slightly less slimy/slippery sensation. Olivella is more “oil” feeling than Aptera. I will probably use both, as I like both and think for the allergy-prone, rotating products is a good idea, anyway. Two great products that are good for your sensitive skin. Yay.Enjoy and have happy skin!

Never mind the smell

I bought this to use with Olivella moisturizer after reading some positive reviews. Yes the soap has a strong veggie-like odor when first unwrapped, but after it gets wet the smell dissipates and you have a long-lasting gentle on the skin bar of soap. I like it because it got rid of some stubborn blackheads without being overly drying. A much better soap than Neutrogena and more economical if you buy the 12-pack.

Good Deal for the Product

Normally, I’m not a huge fan of bar soaps. They seem to dry everything out. But recently, in a mission to start finding better deals along side trying NOT to sacrifice for good skin care, beauty product quality, etc…I decided to try this bar kinda like a 2 for 1 in the shower – something I can wash my face with & body (on a body sponge of course). I know the products are marketed to women of other ethnicity/naturally darker skin tones. However, I am a woman with a near pale alabaster complexion who combats with complicated acne and the scars it leaves in it’s wake. I’ve finally managed to find a simple, inexpensive regime to deal with it. Now, I’m adding this to it. I emerged from my last shower feeling clean and not dry. It lathers well, smells light, and so far seems to be a good replacement for my shower face & body wash in one. This would likely be a better summer product than a winter one, as your skin adjusts to the whole weather change thing, but its a satisfactory product overall. I’ll likely sign up for the subscription service next time I order to save even more.

Excellent Cleanser

This soap is great. I used this soap years ago, but switched soaps for quite some time. What I love about it is the fact that it does indeed rinse extremely clean. Leaves my skin smooth and squeaky clean. I don’t feel any sort of residue left behind on my skin. It also smells fantastic, and it leaves a light, clean, fresh scent behind.One must wonder if it’s so awesome, why only four stars? Well, that’s because it leaves my skin a little on the dry side. Some may not have this issue, but I do. However, I have no problem using it. The cleansing attributes of this soap out-weigh the drying property of it.

Surprisingly – I liked it

I was given the opportunity to try this soap. I was hesitant because I DON’T like bar soap. I haven’t used it in 15 years. But I can say I was pleasantly surprised with the feel of this soap on my face. There is good lather and a mild scent. Which is good because I don’t like scented products on my face. It also did not dry out my skin which was wonderful. I can recommend this bar soap.

Love it!

After trying out the soap for myself I love the way my skin feels after; my skin feels clean, soft and hydrated. It doesn’t leave your skin feeling dry or scratchy but left my skin feeling smooth and soft. Not to mention I think the soap smells so good and fresh! It’s just one of those fresh scents that can truly be appreciated when you smell it. Also, I noticed that this soap doesn’t give the residue after effect that a lot of infused soaps do, which is a huge plus to me. I hate that residue after affect and avoid those soaps at all cost to be honest. Something else I noticed when I used this soap is that the exfoliation benefits are tremendous and instantly noticeable. I’m one who appreciates instant gratification so to see an immediately noticeable difference is again, a big deal for me. The one major thing though that really caught my attention about this soap is that the bar is solid. What I mean by that is that other moisturizing bars disintegrate whereas this bar is holding up well in the shower and so far not dissolving.Needless to say I’ve had a positive experience using the Adovia Dead Sea Salt Soap bar. It works great, it’s high quality, and feels great! It’s also supposed to be good on sensitive skin as well, but I’m not so sensitive so I can’t vouch for that one. Not to mention it smells good. I definitely recommend the soap.

Made my face dry and peel

I have extremely oily African American skin so I have been exploring different products including everything from soaps, moisturizers, peels, and toners to control the oil. After using this Neutrogena soap for the first time, I noticed my skin was dry so I had to apply more moisturizer than usual. After about a week, my skin had a slight burning sensation and it was so dry in some areas that my skin started to peel. This reaction was bad enough that I discontinued use. About 5 years ago, I tried Neutrogena products for the first time (a moisturizer that was advertised by Gabriel Union), and I had a negative reaction. So, with both experiences at two totally different stages in my life, I have tried Neutrogena and it is not for me. I do not have sensitive skin, so I’m not sure what chemical is in their products that disagree with my skin. I do not recommend.

A wonderful classic!

I’ve been using this soap for a very long time. Very gentle, non irritating, good basic facial soap. If you have a specific problem or special needs skin, ask your dermatologist first, but this has always been a great choice for me and my family. It does melt pretty quickly so if you do use it, make sure to place it in a soap dish that allows the bar to air dry, otherwise it will not last very long. I have a teenager who gets the occasional breakout, but when she uses this, her skin improves very quickly and looks great! Enjoy!

So WORTH THE TRY!!!

Speaking from an individual with super oily/ problematic/ sensitive skin: I stumbled across this product at the local supercenter and for $2.00 each, I couldnt resist. “Fragrance free! No dyes! NO Detergents! No hardeners! Enriched with Glycerin!” I had to give this a try. After using it for the first time, my current pimples were less red and irritated. My facial skin felt so clean yet still somewhat hydrated. By the next day, the pimples had dramatically subsided. The color of the pimples were beginning to fade. Less and less noticeable marks on my facial skin. My pores are FINALLY clean and free of build-ups. I havent seen my skin this clean and fresh looking since high school. OMG!!! Im so in love! Im going back to the supercenter to grab 5, 6, or maybe even 10 since its $2.00 each. Just in case they discontinue anytime down the line, i’ll be well prepared:)
