I just ordered some because I have tried many products, natural and cosmetics, and nothing worked for long.

I only tried the Dudu Osun soap and it broke me out everywhere I used the soap.  Maybe I should try the alata (Ghana) soap since I believe they don't use any fragrance.

I am using Alaffia unscented black soap. I bought it at Wegman's and have seen it at Whole Foods as well. I only use it once a day since black soap can be drying. I haven't had any reaction to it so far (I have been using it for almost 2 months). It helps to get rid of extra oil on my face, but it doesn't prevent me from getting oily.

Well if anyone finds anything good for oily skin, please post! I've never tried the African Black soap, but like the above poster was saying...it may stop the oil/shine for the moment, but the face continues to "produce" the oil underneath, which is the main culprit.

I received the soap yesterday and already used it. I will have some opinion formed about the ABS after a few weeks.

So far so good; it has been pretty hot lately in LA (high 70's low 80's) and my t-zone isn't as oily. Also, my period started yesterday and that usually means a couple pimples on my face, but nothing surfaced.

This thing can really dry up your face! Since my face is mixed (oily/normal) the parts that are not oily get really dry.
So far this soap has been good with my oily t-zone but there are no other improvements, such as minimizing fine lines, etc.

Damn, I gave a small piece of my soap to my boyfriend because he gets lots of pimples. He has a clear complexion now.
I cannot believe it worked better for him than for me Angry
I do feel sometimes as if my face has been tightened, but it hasn't removed fine lines. I wish it would close my pores.

Update: it really does a great job with getting rid of the oils. I haven't used my blotting papers in a while!
