This is my first pure natural black soap. It leaves my skin dry a little, and if i leave it on too long it burns/tingle. I can't wait to try the Nubian black soap. I use another brand like it. I wish i learned about black soap around 15 yrs old. My acne is not bad but i just needed to know how to mange it and keep it clear of breakouts. The only problem i have is the left over acne scars. The only time i have break outs is when i am getting on my monthly. I have combination skin and i use clinique moisturizing lotion. i love it because it doesn't leave my skin greasy but balanced after i wash it. I use Yogi Skin detox tea.
