I've been using this soap bar from the moment I opened it. And I LOVE it! Before using this, I had extremely oily skin, lots of redness, blackheads on my nose, and my pores were gigantic! I have been so used to spending 7 dollars every month for an acne scrub as a face wash because I felt like it cleaned better. Boy, was I wrong. This soap is light, refreshing and will last me forever! I still get some a little acne, but I think it was the makeup I had been using (which I've now changed). I've noticed my skin does not get as oily, the redness is going away, my black heads are shrinking and my pores are getting smaller. I'm hooked, and my husband is too (he uses it on his face and back).
