It leaves a residue and blocks pores. Right after I used it and patted my skin dry I felt like it didn't clean good enough and it left some of it in my skin. I guess its not for everyone. This also goes to show that not everything that "all natural" is good for acne prone skin. Thanks for trying to give some advise, but that stuff now has a skull and cross bones on it for me. I still have the bar and I'm thinking about selling it or something (to someone without acne).
Hi Healthy J,
It is a big misconception that "all natural" products are better for the skin than products found in the drug stores, beauty supply stores, department stores, supermarkets, etc.
I would advise against using products made out of someone's kitchen because the health and sanity standards/regulations that are imposed on many companies are not present in grandma's kitchen. You have no idea of the conditions that were present in the area where the soap was being made. Do you know if the items and utensils they used were sterilized? Were the ingredients fresh and of the highest quality? Did they even wash their hands before preparing the soap? There is absolutely no way for you to ever know any of these things. If you must buy products that are "all natural", then please only buy from a well reputed company like Jason, Rachel Perry, Zia, Desert Essence, Kiss My Face, Etc.
