If you have only tried it a few days, I would recommend trying to it again and sticking with it.

 





Not in my case.  When I tried the Dudu Osun soap on my body, where I have no acne whatsoever, I was itching, rashing up with pus filled lesions.  I am not pressed to try the regular black soap because I found something that doesn't cause a reaction on my skin.

I hate black soap on my skin. It's abrasive and doesn't do much for acne in my opinion. 

I would recommend Kojie San soap. It will help get rid of blemishes too. Phisoderm Ph Cleansing wash is also AMAZING. This soap by itself helped me get rid of years of acting and balanced my sebum production to the point where I don't have acne issues anymore. It's mild too.

My grandmother used to have lye soap. lol
She had beautiful skin though.
 
Lye is similiar to the mail ingredients in relaxers and hair removal creams. A great exfoliant, no doubt.

Keep in mind, even Rx acne meds may cause an "Initial Breakout", which means that all the zits that are under your skin, that haven't come to the surface yet, are brought to the surface a lot sooner and at the same time. The skin is purging.

Sometimes, it gets worse before it gets better. The med/soap may not be causing the break out, simply accelerating the maturation of zits that were already forming where you couldn't see them.
