Alaffia Authentic African Black Soap All-In-One Tangerine Citrus -- 32 fl oz
great soap, great price
For about a year, I searched for a liquid bath soap with no sls, no harsh chemicals, and no scents that make me sneeze. The onset of menopause did crazy things to my skin making it more sensitive and so dry that it flaked and itched - both uncomfortable and unattractive. I first discovered Alaffia African Black Soap Tangerine Citrus at WF and knew my search was over after the first use. However, the smaller 16 ounce size cost more than double the Vitacost 32 ounce refill. Yay Vitacost!
The citrus scent is clean and fresh, not at all sneeze or allergy inducing. The soap itself has a viscous, slippery feel. Because it has no artificial chemicals, the lather is not the same as "regular" soap, yet there are a few bubbles. Whether I am taking a morning shower, dirty from gardening, or sweaty from bike riding, this soap always cleans and rinses well leaving me fresh without tight, dry skin. The light citrus scent rinses away. I even replaced my expensive facial cleanser and use this instead. I have no problem with soap reside on my skin, my shower tiles, or my bathtub. I have even used this soap when bathing my grandsons, one of whom has very sensitive skin.
I highly recommend Alaffia Black Soap for everyone, especially those with sensitive, dry, or menopausal skin. I will continue to buy this soap from Vitacost.

Secret everything elixir
This product is just gold. I have been using it for almost a month now and skin feels super soft and smooth. I also use it to wash my hair and its cleanses and hair feels amazingly soft. My husband uses it to shave, he doesnt care much for the scent but loves how non irritating the product is to his skin, Will get unscented for him. I'm in love! Even more so because apportion of my purchase goes to a good cause.

This stuff here I DON'T like. I thought that I would love this. Because I love the smell of black soap and I love the smell of citrus.But the smell reminds me of dirt and citrus. I did use it as a body wash and a shampoo on my 3c-4a hair. The results are nothing to rave about. I felt as if I had just washed my hair/ bathed with some 99cent store shampoo/body wash.... to give you guys an idea of what i do like it would be Nubian Heritage... and that's what I was kinda expecting with this

Hands down favorite soap!
I discovered this by accident while looking for something else and I'm so glad I did! During pregnancy I'm extremely sensitive to smells and this really nice, mild, lemongrass scent is clean and fresh but not overpowering. It has made my skin so happy, it never feels dry anymore, and I love having a product I can use on my body and face and not worry if my children get into it.

Great Product ...
I truly enjoyed this product and it lasted for months! I use it to cleanse my face, wash my hair and body. It's safe for babies and children.
I wished it lathered a little more. I think something I'm getting over with using natural soaps it that they won't always lather like the synthetic soaps. it held up well and honestly it's healthier for me and my family...so the excess bubbles are something I'm willing to let go.
