Amazing product, truly removes all impurities, I would not recommend using more than a few days a week or your skill will dry out.
magical and affordable. my oily, flaky, & sensitive skin loves it. J. Amos - Tucson, AZ (Friday, August 3, 2012)
This bar lathers into a milky foam and draws the oil out of my pores without leaving my skin feeling like plastic bag that's about to rip apart. ONE bar lasts about at least a YEAR (I cut it into quarters). I am asian with oily, flaky, sensitive skin, and I live in the Arizona desert. I've tried cleansers from the drug store (Cetaphil, Neutrogena, etc), Sephora, Ulta, Paula's Choice, etc... my skin has finally found it's soul mate in this bar. This review goes for both the white and black bar soaps. Discovered this 3 years ago in a remote spa resort in Atami, Japan. Stocked up then but finally ran out. I am deeply appreciative of TrueRenu for making it available in the US.
works great CeCe - US (Saturday, August 15, 2009)
Great product. Lasts reallllyyyyy long. Didn't overly dry my skin, but it did dry up small pimples =) I tried to cut it up, but it didn't slice too nicely because the soap is very dense - so it broke at irregular parts. I get a small piece and work it into a lather between my palms. It lathers surprisingly well. The smell as a little off-putting for me, but my friend thinks it smells good. I would buy it again, but that probably won't happen until next year seeing as I only use it 3-4 times weekly and the piece I broke off hasn't gotten much smaller.
Really good acne/face soap ML Smith - USA (Friday, August 7, 2009)
I have a very oily skin and at first I was skeptical about this product.
However, I am now about to order my second bar as this is just a wonderful soap! It leaves my face dry but not too dry, clean and acne free.
- Very good face soap
- No more blackheads
- Significant improvement in acne
- Too big - I had to cut mine into half so it can fit in my travel bag. Absolutely not a reason to not buy this soap
Suggestion: Best to wash the face before you go to sleep and also, even more important: wash your face with soap when you wake up in the morning - it will make a big difference!
Great soap! R. Hunter - US (Sunday, March 15, 2009)
I purchased this to help with acne. NO NEW ZITS SINCE I STARTED USING IT!!!
Pros: It has done a very good job of cleansing and drying out the acne without drying out my skin. I have had no irritation at all from using this product.
Cons: It may slightly stain your light colored washcloths.
Leaves Skin Flawless - minimizes pores Janie C - USA (Sunday, March 15, 2009)
I am 40 years old and still get pimples because I have large pores that get clogged easily. The soap I was using (Acne Aid) got discontinued. The apothecary recommended this product and it works amazingly.
I wish I could have tried it sooner. My pores have reduced in size and my skin is so soft and clear. I use it twice daily followed with Noxzema Triple Clean pads. My skin has not looked better thanks to this routine.
Please try this soap if you have large pores or a lot of blackheads.
A great facial bar soap that UNCLOGS pores! L. D'Avirro - Boulder, CO (Monday, November 10, 2008)
I am a bar soap lover I hate liquid cleansers. Not sure why, but I do. This one is great for pulling the goop out of pores and bringing it to the surface for removal. It makes your skin feel soooo clean-no residue. I have combo skin, more toward the dry side, and have developed adult onset acne on my cheeks and temple area. My chin and nose have always had problems with blackheads. This soap dramatically reduced the development of whiteheads on my cheeks, and really cleaned out my pores. I haven't had any new blackheads on my nose for months! Note: I also stopped using a moisturizer (maybe that helped too). IT IS KEY to really take the time to lather this soap up on your face in circular motions. Note: This soap can be drying, but I have been okay using it without a moisturizer afterwards.
Best soap ever! G. Imura - USA (Sunday, November 9, 2008)
This soap is probably one of the best finds ever. Before I found this soap I was using every facial scrub and anti-blackhead cream cleanser I could find. Some worked better than others but every time my face would get red because of the acids in the cleansers. Deitenseki soap solved that for me. It lasts forever and does a great job at keeping my face blackhead free. It cleans deeper than any of the other stuff I've used and dries with a nice matte finish without over drying my skin. The only downside is with such clear pores my pores are free to expel their oils freely. Overall a great purchase.
