Is this them?

Edit: $25 to get one bar here in Canada...

u/TheMostEqual · 254 pointsr/interestingasfuck

I think it's Nablus soap from the West Bank.

I recall seeing this a few months or years ago. I'd imagine they get a spike in sales whenever this pops up on reddit. But they probably have no idea why.

Edit: a letter and an apostrophe

Here you go!

Olive Oil Nablus Soap (1 count)

If that link doesnt work (because I’m on mobile), just search Nablus soap on amazon

u/roslein · 52 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I've had KP since I was a kid and am finally getting handle on it in my 30s. My current routine is glycolic lotion twice a day, creams on the affected areas 3-4 times a day, and then physical exfoliation and using zinc or sulfur soap a couple times a week to keep the bumps at bay. But since skincare is YMMV, here's the exhaustive list of almost two decades of treatment, in case some of these other things will work for you!

100% of the items can be purchased via Amazon in the US - it's pretty much the only way I shop.

Beginner Level

If your KP has just appeared, focus on physical+chemical exfoliation and moisturizing. Look for lotions with the following ingredients:

Last time this was posted I found out it's in Palestine and they are about $4/bar, or $15 from Amazon. This is something similar -

It's called Nablusi, or Nablus soap, made with Olive Oil.....which sounds awful to shower with.

u/duh-palmtree · 15 pointsr/SCAcirclejerk

So I did a lot of research on it before I bought it and apparently anything you can buy off the shelf at a store is either fake or altered, which means it’s not “real,” in a sense. Real African black soap will look sort of like someone threw it up and have an earthy, grainy texture to it. There’s no lye used when they make it (if someone who understands soap more than me can step in here I’d be grateful) which makes the whole bar less consistent.

Ideally you want to choose one that says that it was made in Ghana because then you know you’re getting the real thing and not a bar of soap that was dyed black for laughs.

Anywhoo, onto my experiences...the internet told me that it’s too harsh to apply directly to the skin, so after I take my makeup off, I wet my face down and rub the soap with my fingers until a brown, oily substance coats them, from there I can massage it into my face for a few seconds. I was surprised the first time I used it because I wasn’t expecting it to foam up and it kind of does. Once I’ve got it rubbed all over everything (not my eye area), I let it sit for like 5 seconds and then I splash water onto my face to get it off.

Before I had any kind of skincare routine I had a lot of built up dead skin on my face. I’d guess that I probably had dehydrated skin because no matter how much I moisturized it was still gunky. We’re talking blackheads everywhere and I could scrape the skin off in the shower. Now that I have a better routine (going on a year now) my skin is more clear and definitely a normal skin type, I absolutely think the soap being so strong has a lot to do with that.

If you’ve never used it before I’d say start with once or twice a week and see what happens. I find that my skin feels “squeaky clean” after I wash my face but not horribly dry...I definitely need to re-add hydrators and moisturizers after I use the soap but my face doesn’t feel nearly as tight as, say, if I’ve gotten out of the shower after just using straight water without any cleanser.

If you do decide to go for it see if you can find a bar that’s not a 1lb brick though, I thought a pound was a good choice and no joke, using it just on my face, 7 days a week, I have a decade’s supply. My boyfriend’s young daughters will be getting African black soap gifted to them on their 21st birthdays. I don’t know what to do with this amount of soap.

But that’s enough of this rant. I hope I answered some questions!

u/hellomynameiswayne · 13 pointsr/climbing

Climb On! Best thing for destroyed fingers after a climb sesh, in my humble opinion. Be aware that your fingers will be gooey for 15-30 minutes after applying though.

u/BlazeWelly · 13 pointsr/AmISexy

Okay, let's assume your attempts at humor are a deflection from your insecurities, so i'll give you legitimate advice.
First off, shave the beard and teenstache. You look best in your 2nd to last pic, I actually think that long hair suits you when it isn't wet, making it look sort of greasy.
Also, if you're 18 you are still very young, but you can start working on the things that will improve your appearance today! Exercise (bodyweight and cardio if you aren't comfortable going to the gym), eat healthier food, and drink tons of water. You can see a dermatologist about clearing up your skin and in the meantime, buy a body wash like this one, it may work better for you than prescription acne products, you never know until you try for yourself!

u/LloydWright · 12 pointsr/sex

Washing with soap for an hour won't get garlic off your fingers. You need one of these:

u/Moeparker · 11 pointsr/educationalgifs

I bought this soap. It lasts for months. It's fantastic.

Amazon Prime Link: $5 for the bar of soap:

It even has the indentation from the Mallet hit

u/manonitebretheren · 9 pointsr/NaturalBeauty

I really do believe that artificial hormones really f with our systems (joys of being a woman). I have a friend who had to go back on birth control because, like you, going off made her skin freak out, and I got a hormonal IUD a year ago and have only just gotten my hormonal breakouts mostly under control.

I was suffering from cystic breakouts on my face and back (ow!!). My saving grace was sulfur soap - it made everything vanish within weeks. I don't get those painful cysts anymore!! It's super cheap, and the bar lasts for a while. I use it in the shower every day. It does smell but I find it doesn't linger after drying off (and the results are worth it regardless). I first learned about it from some obscure comment after hours of digging on r/SkincareAddiction and I wish it was more well-known because it really changed my skin.

u/SyzygyTooms · 8 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I buy mine from comes in this huge tub and looks like rocks haha, but man does it pull out impurities like no other..but somehow manages to keep skin soft.

Here's the one I buy:

u/Forester263 · 8 pointsr/malefashionadvice

So, my son (in the picture) has had eczema over most of his body, including his scalp, and we've always used a moisturizer called Cera Ve with good results. If your dry skin is related to eczema, my understanding is that it could be allergy related.

My son and I have been using "African black soap" for the last year or so, including our scalps. It seems to clean more gently and keeps skin moisturized. The kind I linked is probably the most popular, and we get it at Walgreens.

u/Gymnocalycium · 8 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Use a zinc soap. This was recommended to me by a dermatologist.

u/Hanginon · 7 pointsr/interestingasfuck

I think this is the stuff.

u/chaz905 · 6 pointsr/CrazyIdeas

They do have caffeine soap

u/Trent_3000 · 6 pointsr/FTMMen

I can tell you what products I use for mine. I've tried a lot of products. The stuff I like is

Beard Guyz Beard Serum with Grotein 20, 1 ounce

Cremo Styling Beard Cream,Thickening, 4 oz

Shea Moisture African Black Soap With Shea Butter 8 oz

They've both been the best at making my beard look fuller and styling it. I think the beard serum worked best when it was shorter and the cremo works better with my longer beard now. Mine's pretty long so if I don't use product I look bad lol.

Beard shampoo isn't at all necessary and most of them include oils that block dht so they won't help grow your beard either. Waste of money. I just use african black soap. It's good for my face and my beard. Also it doesn't contain any parabens or propylene glycol.

All that being said. You can always pick up a basic beard balm and use the same soap you wash with. Just don't get anything with dht blocking oils such as lavender oil, rosemary oil, tea tree oil, pumpkin seed oil, saw palmetto oil, and emu oil.

u/[deleted] · 6 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I had really bad upper bacne. What solved it for me was using an italy towel or a [salux] ( towel and [this] ( soap. Not the best lather but I have no bacne what so ever and the scars are going away too :) Just need to remember to patch test it first to make sure you don't have a reaction to it.

u/FavoriteActorDennehy · 6 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Okay this is what cleared up my chest and back in two weeks.

2% Pyrithione Zinc (ZnP) Bar Soap

Alpha Skin Care Revitalizing Body Lotion with 12% Glycolic AHA

I'm also using two other products to lighten the leftover marks (Alpha Hydrox
Spot Light Targeted Skin Lightener & InstaNatural Niacinamide 5% Face Serum) but haven't seen much improvement in that regard.

u/lilyofyosemite · 5 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

My favorite thing for nasty cracked feet (discovered when I spent a month climbing in the desert) is this climbing balm. I usually put it on before bed and then wear thin socks to bed.

My mom swears by using a pumice stone to remove extra callus and then using lanolin oil (same idea, apply before bed and wear socks overnight). That works super well for me too.

u/PrincipalOak · 5 pointsr/ZeroWaste

A common active ingredient in Head and Shoulders shampoos is pyrithione zinc. If that helped you before it might work in a bar as well. I’m not sure if you use amazon or want to order one but this is one used to treat dandruff. You may have luck finding the vanicream z bar in drugstores near you.

u/TwoChe · 5 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Stridex is easiest, but cheap is salicylic acid soap. I get a blue bar from walmart for like 2 bucks and it lasts a month or so if I only use it on my face (I also hit my chest, armpits [really good to reduce BO and crusty pits] and my upper shoulders/back). I am an oily dude btw, probably obvious though, so your mileage may vary but it is awesome stuff.

E: So walmart also sells a cheap sulfur soap that I use, but here is something on amazon with both in one bar--

My understanding is that SA is essentially aspirin, so I dont really splurge for the expensive on that because I imagine it is wasteful (same for sulfur too). In my local walmart the soap with spanish language on the front is usually about 1/3 the price of the english label on the next aisle

u/kandiemandie · 5 pointsr/popping

this is the one I buy specifically. It comes in a little twist-cap plastic jar so your bathroom doesn't smell like sulfur and it preserves the soap so it doesn't melt away when it gets wet.

The smell is not THAT strong but you will still smell it faintly. You do get used to it very quickly.

I wash with plain soap first and exfoliate well then I wash with the sulfur soap letting it stay on my skin for a minute or two instead of washing it off right away. It treats my body acne and eczema very well

u/shoot2scre · 4 pointsr/pics
u/boxofpandas · 4 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I use Mario Badescu AHA body soap. It cost me $8 on Amazon.

u/Gandalf-the-Bae · 4 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

​I have combination skin that alternates between being too oily and too dry. I have LOTS of large pores and sebaceous filaments around my nose and chin, and they never seem to go away, even with occasional blackhead strips or weekly exfoliation. I sometimes get acne in these spots as well as my forehead--occasionally small bumps, but usually cystic acne. I recently switched from the birth control pill (combination pill) to an IUD, so I've noticed an increase of acne on my face and body (where I've never really gotten acne before, even before I went on the pill).

I've also always had issues with redness and unevenness, especially around my cheeks and nose. It flares up when I'm stressed or when I eat gluten (celiac disease), and it seems really similar to my mother's rosacea. My skin is very sensitive as well, and harsh products irritate my skin and make it inflamed, red, and itchy.


Here's my current routine:

MORNING (shower)

Shea Moisture African Black Soap bar

SheaMoisture African Black Soap Body Wash (body)

Shea Moisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Toner OR 100% witch hazel (alcohol free)

Aveeno Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer For Sensitive Skin With Broad Spectrum Spf 15


Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water, For All Skin Types

Shea Moisture African Black Soap bar

Shea Moisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Toner

LadyKin Affinitic Snail Cream

Skyn Iceland Pure Cloud Cream OR Shea Moisture Peace Rose Oil Complex Sensitive Skin Moisturizer 


When I get cystic acne, I usually use either diluted tea tree oil or a tiny bit of benzoyl peroxide directly on the bumps. The latter tends to irritate my skin very badly.


Regarding facial cleansers, I sometimes alternate between the following as well: 

Skyn Iceland Glacial Face Wash

BRTC Jasmine Waterfall Foaming Cleanser 


And I wear mud/charcoal masks or sheet masks about once a week or so. Would anybody be able to provide guidance? I guess my primary concern is the redness, which is usually pretty noticeable. The other issues (acne and large pores) don't look as bad in person. Does anyone have any product/routine suggestions?

u/peaceandpinecones · 4 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Product name: Sal3 bar soap

Product type: cleanser

Price (range): 5.99 for a bar on amazon -

Country of purchase: USA

Skin info: Type II, acne prone, rosacea, sensitive (and irritated from tretinoin)

Ingredient list: Active ingredients: 3% salicylic acid, 10% sulfur. Inactive ingredients: saponified palm and palm kernal oils, glycerin, lanolin, cocamide DEA, ethanol, titanium dioxide.

Special info: high pH of close to 9 I believe, and it has an earthy dirt like smell

Experience & opinion: honestly this saved my skin. I went from irritated and red with cc’s all over to semi clear. It’s strong and the pH isn’t ideal but it helps with redness and irritation so much! I was told to use it by my derm to help with the irritation from the tret and to work on the rosacea. I use it once a day and rub it in for about 90 seconds as per her instructions.

u/finalfantasy2 · 4 pointsr/keto

I would definitely get a size smaller, you want to be able to wear the shirt as long as possible and you'll probably drop weight quickly in the beginning. I found this while searching for other styles, has science gone too far?

u/islandancient · 4 pointsr/curlyhair

I used to scratch so much my scalp would bleed and my hair would start falling out but I changed my diet ( too much sugar, dairy, & wheat would trigger it badly) and started using zinc soap to wash my hair. I still itch every now and then if I become too stressed but that’s nothing compared to how it was before.

DermaHarmony 2% Pyrithione Zinc (ZnP) Bar Soap 4 oz - Crafted for Those with Skin Conditions - Seborrheic Dermatitis, Dandruff, Psoriasis, Eczema, etc.

u/aginger · 4 pointsr/SkincareAddicts

This is the brand I've purchased in the past:

However, Vanicream recently released a pyrithone zinc soap that's only available through their website that I want to try, because I like a lot of other Vanicream products.

u/secret-coconut · 4 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Did you introduce all of those products into your routine slowly, one at a time? I may have missed it in your OP, but what would you consider your skin type to be? Dry, combo, dehydrated, normal, oily, etc.?

It is possible that you are using too many products and exfoliating too frequently, which damages your moisture barrier and can result in an increase in CCs/pimples. I would try cutting back to just cleansing and moisturizing for a few weeks, and really pay attention to how your skin feels after you cleanse.

I have very sensitive skin and even using Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser or CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser made my skin dry and flaky after use. I have ditched cleanser (for the most part) in favor of washing with water and then using a micellar water to clean my skin. If I do use cleanser, I use Noble Formula 2% Pyrithione Zinc with Argan Oil on days that I don't use my curology prescription, as recommended by my curology provider.

If it is available to you (i.e. you're in the US), curology is a great resource that is worth looking into.

ETA - there is a one month free trial of curology available, if you just google that you should get the code for it

u/ValiumKnight · 4 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I did a trial of curology and the recommendation for chest/back acne were the following:

Vanicream Z-Bar (Pyrithione Zinc 2%) Medicated Cleansing Bar (

Noble Formula 2% Pyrithione Zinc Bar Soap ( or

Both of which are zinc and for the body, and quite affordable!

Edit: forgot to include my main point

u/Pattycaaakes · 4 pointsr/microgrowery

I used something like this and it worked for years. I think you could probably buy something like that at a pet store that sells fish and reptiles and stuff, or possibly at a garden supply store.

u/NotoriousBootyPirate · 3 pointsr/cagonewild

Thats the Irishman in you. My buddy's dad has red, brown, black, and grey and it looks fucking awesome but he always shaves it no matter how cool i tell him it looks.

I use a few things. If i'm feeling fancy i wax the stache up into curls but washing stache wax off your fingers takes forever. I wash it with this which i highly recommend, use beard conditioner, and when im out the shower i use just straight jojoba oil. Sometimes a balm, but i get the vibe that 99% of beard care products are waaaaay overpriced. Like i'd pay 2x as much for 1/2 as much oil just cause it has fragrance added to the jojoba oil. I've tried taking collagen too but i always get acne when i stop taking it.

Everytime i use a boars hair brush i feel like it rips too much out but i literally get dreads it i dont. Mine is very wirey. Looks better when the hairs kinda dried out and i dont oil it but i do anyway. I think you should man try this i'll buy it for you if you're tight on cash. They sell vitamin E oil at the dollar tree and thats good to lather on like 30 minutes before a shower (not after cause it smells weird) as a treatment.

u/franny__glass · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Me too. Do you think this one would work just as well? I'd like to try this.

u/ajwink · 3 pointsr/ZeroWaste

I have yet to try these but they are on my list when I need more shampoo:

They have a couple scents but they look eerily similar to lush’s bars.

Noble Formula 2% Pyrithione Zinc (ZnP) Vegan Mango and Cocoa Butter Bar Soap, 3.25 oz

This appears to be the best bar version for dandruff. (I want to mention this one because there’s another brand on amazon/Etsy that is for dandruff but they have palm oil. When I asked if they had any palm oil free options, they sent me a manifesto on how expensive finding an alternative is so poop on them.)

u/Ouri · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I got sick which put me in terrible condition and it ended up affecting my ability to complete my skincare routine every night and has made my eye area and nose super chapped, so i've been using petroleum jelly to moisturise those areas... really sucks when i've been working hard to be consistent with my routine and then BAM sick me just wants to give everything up and let a bad breakout happen

The Paula's Choice Super Light Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 is AMAZING, I can't get over how cosmetically elegant it is, it is pretty much everything I want out of a sunblock. It is completely zinc oxide based with at least SPF 30 and it doesn't pill at all on my skin and dries to a matte finish and manages to keep me significantly less oily throughout the day. It's tinted and I am pretty sure the tint is too dark for me and I'd actually prefer a whitecast versus a tinted cast, but I don't mind because it isn't noticeable at all and makes this product usable by a wide range of skintones.

new purchases

  • Dr. Sponge Konjac Sponge - Excited to try this as it seems to be the most gentle cleansing tool out there

  • 2 lb aztec secret healing clay ((Repurchase)) - Want to retry this mask again, back when I started using it I would leave it on for an hour or until it was completely dry and wonder why it would irritate my skin... now I know better

  • Rosebud Salve (Original & Minted Rose) ((Repurchase)) - This is my fave stuff to use on my lips and i've been out of it for a while! I also like using the original for dry spots on my face

  • 2% Pyrithione Zinc Bar Soap (Vegan Formula) - My pocketderm dermatologist recommended this and i'm finally getting around to using it, i read on here someone rubs their konjac sponge into the soap to use it which I want to experiment with too

  • Physicians Formula Airbrushing Pressed Powder SPF 30 (Translucent) - To retouch on SPF throughout the day because you can never get too much SPF protection, and also oil-control

I use the Sal3 sulfur/salicylic acid soap also from Braunfels, and I find is rinses away pretty much odorless too. The maker claims it's because of its "colloidal" formulation:

It can be very drying though, be sure to have a good moisturizer and maybe use every other day.

u/kaleidoscopic_prism · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

This is the bar soap I'm working through. Sal3

I hate bar soap, so hopefully I can find a liquid version. This stuff smells, so I usually follow up with regular body wash so I don't smell like an active volcano.

u/fawkes-trot · 3 pointsr/muacjdiscussion

SAL3 Soap: A bar soap with 10% sulfur and 3% salicylic acid. Omg, the improvement I've seen within 2 weeks of this stuff is insane. Sulfur is anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory; salicylic acid is a chemical exfoliant. This stuff is destroying my chestne and backne, without destroying my skin or taking 3000 years to work!

I would suggest not using it too often at first -- like Stridex or other salicylic acid products, it can dry your skin out if you suddenly start using it 3x a day. Start with once a day or once every other day.

u/RevWeb · 3 pointsr/SebDerm

I know I am a little late, but I created a Reddit account JUST to post this in hopes that it helps someone.

I was diagnosed with PD a while back and tried SO many things (zero therapy, Eucrisa, coconut oil, sulfate wash, vanicream cleanser, etc.)

My "miracle" has been Pyrithione Zinc (ZnP) Bar Soap. I use an incredibly affordable version from Amazon ( and my face has almost completely cleared in (3) days.

My routine, morning and night (on the PD area only) is to lather the zinc bar soap up, wash and rinse well, lightly pat dry, follow up with a small amount of metronidazole cream (rubbed in well), wait for it to absorb completely, apply YORO Organic Manuka Honey cream, and done.

This combination has been an absolute live saver for me. No more bumps, dryness, redness.. nothing!

I am so happpppyyy!

I hope this helps someone!

u/Swablus · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

As someone who has been using Dove soap for many years, I honestly have not spotted a difference. However, personally I've moved locations and so I know for sure that I'm sensitive to the water (hard water) as I started to develop rashes on my skin after a lukewarm shower. If Dove doesn't work for you anymore, I recommend you trying out Cetaphil (Gentle) and/or CeraVe bar soap as they're equally great for sensitive skin. I've tried CeraVe soap and I love it :-)

u/DemNeurons · 3 pointsr/AskDocs

Hmm I think there could be a few more useful details here to help. I've been on the hunt for good briefs and undershirts for a long time. I've finally settled on Uniqlo's airism garments. They make shirts and boxer briefs (what I use) They're synthetic, but they make them in tight knit and mesh, and boy are they breathable. I'd have to disagree with those saying stay away from synthetic - if done right, they can be amazing. I used to use cotton, and found they'd be damp by the end of the day or gross. This rarely happens to me anymore with these.

Couple things to keep in mind - be true to your weight and size. Boxer briefs, and pants for that matter, can make things worse if they're too small or tight fitting. Better pants can also help - you're looking for breathability. Lulu lemon makes a men's dress pant that a ^(rich)friend of mine swears by. I'm not saying go spend $100+ on pants, but I'm sure other non-branded versions similar to these exist at a fraction the cost.

Lastly, as others have said, hygeine is very important. Be sure to use body wash, and make sure everything is dry before putting clothes on. I've heard using Tea-tree oil as a body wash for stuff like this, though I have not found research on the efficacy of this claim.

Best of luck!

u/mrsmiawallace00 · 2 pointsr/piercing
  • How much confidence they give you even though most everyone is unaware they exist. Also, if you're a girl, you can see them through your shirt/swimsuit, etc. a lot of the time. Band-aids or slight padding will hide them when necessary.
  • Clean them every day. Use antibacterial soap like this (Soap) in the shower to clean them. Keep the crusties off the jewelry. I found mine healed faster and easier w/ straight barbells.
  • It didn't hurt at all. It was the opposite of pain..................ifyaknowwhatimean...
  • The peircer advised me to get them both done the same day. I guess it does hurt most people pretty bad so there's fear you won't go back for the other. Also, 2 healing periods would suck.

u/Gaywallet · 2 pointsr/Fitness

The balm works miracles. You'll see this one around a lot, and most people prefer it, but any balm like this will work well.

Lotion just doesn't help heal and does nothing for blisters. Your hands might be dry, but the underlying issue I think is the heavy weight and friction. You might want to work on your technique and grip strength as well - you really should be gripping as hard as possible to prevent any slippage.

Source: lots of torn up hands from rock climbing.

u/Domje · 2 pointsr/climbharder

I'd 100% recommend Climb ON! I started using it on my hands right after climbing and I also put it on before bed. I've noticed an improvement on how much my skin can take and how quickly it heals. I use a sandpaper stick thing then apply climb on.

u/t0asti · 2 pointsr/climbing

Are you climbing regularly? i.e. not missing weeks? Usually if you climb only once or twice a week the skin should have plenty of time to recover. Maybe it needs to get used to it first (i.e. your skin has to learn how to recover more quickly).

Anywho, you can use salves/skin care products like Climb On, jtree salve, or my personal favorite: tip juice. They are all moisturizer with a wax or resin that stimulates your skin to build more callous. If you do want to use it dont over do it. I usually only apply it when climbing outdoors for multiple days or I had a day at the gym that was especially rough on my skin. If I were you I'd use it for 2 weeks and see if it makes any difference at all, if yes then use it for maybe another 2 weeks and then stop and see if your skin learned how to recover quickly. Only use it the same day after climbing and always make sure to wash your hands. Any chalk left on them makes your skin dry and slows recovery.

Note that you shouldnt overdo it because thick and hard callous is counter productive since it's prone to tearing and splitting and can also hurt when you get in an awkward position.

Hi! 23F here, I went to my gp and he prescribed differin for specifically bacne. I apply it on my chest, shoulders, neck, and back where my bra is.

But I can finally wear my off shoulder tops again and am not afraid of ‘breaking out’ before a date or so.

u/Sequence_Scroll_1921 · 2 pointsr/DeathByMillennial

As for the one I use, you can find it on Amazon if you search "Olive Oil Nablus Soap." Has blue Arabic writing and a red camel logo. One bar usually lasts me a month. Also, here's a video from 2014 documenting their process from start to finish. I believe the AP Archive has a similar but older video of the same sort of thing. Though I'm not sure if it's the same family business as previous video.

Either way it's a great way to support business in the West Bank for a great product. This kind of olive oil soap is commonly made and used all over the Mediterranean from France to Syria and has basically been made the same way for 500 years. It's as simple as soap gets and is often used for lots of different purposes. Body, dishes, clothes, etc...

Ahh, I'm late to the party!

I use raw African black soap-- homemade by these two awesome Ghanaian guys who were selling it at a street fair, not factory packaged stuff. The lighter brown it is, the more shea butter there is in it, and the gentler it will be. The darker brown it is, the more plant ash there is in it, and the harsher it will be. I use a bar with quite a lot of shea butter. This approximates the look of it rather well.

On Amazon, a bar that looks a lot like mine is $7.99 for 16 ounces, or about 50 cents per ounce, which is bonkers cheap (Cerave Foaming is $1.13 per ounce). Plus, it lasts FOREVER. I bought a 16-ounce bar back in August, and am only using it up now (I could still wrangle another month out of it, probably). You just swipe your hand across the bar a couple times and you have enough to cleanse your face, neck, and decolletage.

My skin type is combo/sensitive/mildly acne-prone. To contextualize the amount of acne I usually deal with, I usually have 3 or 4 closed comedones, and I consider getting one cyst to mean a pretty bad skin week, as it usually only happens once a month around my period. (Right now I'm sick, stressed, and busy, and I have about 4 cysts, which hasn't happened since the summer.)

Words cannot describe how much I love this cleanser. It heals cysts way faster than they would heal by themselves, it doesn't make my skin feel tight, and it removes makeup. Don't get the Nubian Heritage packaged stuff you find at Whole Foods-- it has essential oil additives that will mess up your skin. Get some real rough-hewn bars, preferably imported from Africa or homemade by Africans who know what they're doing.

u/calenlass · 2 pointsr/ABraThatFits

I have fairly sensitive skin and wear sports bras a lot for work, where sweating often leaves me breaking out along the band. I've had decent success with african black bar soap from Shea Moisture or Nubian Heritage, the latter of which I can find at my local grocery store. I don't know if these would be preventative enough to help your issue, though.

u/baby_belles · 2 pointsr/xxfitness

I shampoo my hair, put conditioner in it, and put my hair up. While the conditioner is sitting, I wash all of my body except my back. I rinse my hair again and put it up once more. Then I use a back brush and some magical acne soap to clean my back. This helps a lot.

I'm super acne prone though, so I also regularly disinfect my sheets and sports bras with this stuff. Maybe give it a shot if washing your back last doesn't help?

Sulfur wash recommendations?

My dermatologist initially prescribed a sulfur wash for some stubborn acne that I've been experiencing over the last few months, but it wasn't covered by insurance and cost almost $500. So she said to look for one on Amazon. I ended purchasing this one: 10% Sulfur Soap All Natural Fresh Scent. Fragrance Free.

I've (F26) been using it on and off for about two weeks now but I'm noticing very small pustules in odd places like the top of my cheeks and on my nose, which I usually don't experience. My question is two parts: does anyone have any positive experiences using sulfur wash for acne, and, if so, do you have any product recommendations?

My routine below is as follows:

Skin type: combo, acne prone

Location: northeast United States

AM Routine:

  1. Rinse with warm water
  2. Paula's Choice Vitamin C Serum
  3. CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion
  4. CeraVe Ultra-Light Moisturizing Face Lotion with Sunscreen - SPF 30 (I've suspected for awhile that this product is making my skin more oily than normal so I tried my routine today without it and sure enough my skin is less oily)

    PM Routine:
  5. Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser
  6. Prescription tretinoin 0.05%
  7. Cetaphil moisturizing eye cream
  8. CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion

    I also have been using Paula's Choice Azelaic Acid cream for some PIE and PIH from acne and silicone scar sheets for some bad PIE left from a boil I got on my cheek a month ago (I forgot to clean off my blue light glasses at work before wearing them which caused the infection)

    And FINALLY, I was put on 5mg of Lexapro starting in mid July. About six weeks after that was when the breakouts started and got so out of control. I stopped taking it after three months while my dermatologist simultaneously put me on minocycline for two weeks. The acne improved during that time. Since then it has gotten better but it's starting to flair up again and I'm getting really frustrated with constantly trying to fight my acne and not seeing my skin go back to what it was. I get jawline acne that coordinates with my cycle but these latest breakouts are occuring at more random times in my cycle.

    Do I just need to be more patient in letting my skin and hormones regulate? Is the sulfur wash worth it? I know I came here just to ask about to sulfur wash but if you think that it's another problem entirely I'm all ears. Anything to heal my skin and bring some of my confidence back. I feel like I'm doing my skin such an injustice with it in this condition and just want to help it go back to being acne free.
u/LaMadreAzucar · 2 pointsr/offmychest

this happened to me when i was young. it was devastating. people feel like they can comment on your skin and its like you cant get away. i will say one thing- im older now and FINALLY the solution to fixing my skin was a 6 dollar bar of sulfur soap. I was using expensive Rodan and Fields and they changed their face wash which i learned was essentially just sulfur soap and so I started buying this bar and I haven't had a single pimple in like 4 years. I am so sorry you were mad to feel bad. It stings forever.

u/seasicksquid · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I've had success using sulfur soap to stop breakouts on my body. It's worked for my SO as well.

u/bridget992 · 2 pointsr/AsianBeauty

I live in Florida with oily, acne-prone skin. I use mostly AB, but there are some western products that I haven't been able to find better replacements for. Here's my oil-conscious morning routine:

  • Cleanse with sulfur soap. I'm currently testing this out on my acne and recently switched from Cosrx's Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser.

  • Tone with Cosrx Natural Bha Skin Returning A-sol.

  • Reduce excess sebum with Cosrx Bha Blackhead Power Liquid 2-3 times per week. I find that this helps keep my pores clean and reduces oil production.

  • (After waiting 20 minutes) Protect with Biore UV Aqua Rich sunscreen.

  • Moisturize and prime with Nivea Men Sensitive Skin After Shave Balm, which is seriously the best makeup primer I have ever used. Possibly also the cheapest. Feels like nothing on my face, yet allows makeup to stay on all day. Definitely one of my HGs.

  • Color correct with Missha Magic Cushion. It's lightweight, provides good coverage, stays on and doesn't get cakey.

  • And, if I know that I'm going to be outside or busy all day, I'll spray on Skindinavia's Makeup Finishing Spray, which works better than powder and doesn't dry out my skin.
u/ITSA_ME_MARIA · 2 pointsr/acne

Since this is basically Sulphur soap, does it smell bad after it comes in contact with clothes?

I've been using this sulphur soap for a couple weeks with no improvement, and it made my shirts and pillow cases smell awful.

Other than that, I'm very happy that it has worked for you, and I hope it keeps working!

u/hotpantsdance88 · 2 pointsr/SebDerm

I use it to wash my face, then follow up with the aloe and the Avene!

I hope this helps you! At least for me, Zinc was the magic cure. Aloe really helped with redness. And all this stuff is pretty affordable. Let me know if it works!

u/long_live_mcqueen · 2 pointsr/Dermatology

Tenia Versicolor. My bf and I had it as well. It's very common, almost symptomless skin disease. It's simply an imbalance of yeast on your skin and it is not contagious. I had it all over my back and some spots on my chest. It frightened me but it's nothing to be worried about.

We have had luck with selsun blue. Put it on full strength (use a tiny bit of water to lather if you need to) and leave it for 30 min to an hour - go shirtless in the sun with it on your skin for bonus effectiveness. If you don't live with someone who can get it onto your back for you, invest in a bath brush! Also using exfoliating gloves to rub the soap in seems to help, it also feels really good. We have also been using bars of zinc soap which has seemed to help clear it up and keep breakouts away. From what I've read, flare ups may happen from time to time. I now wash with the zinc soap every day which seems to keep the condition at bay.

Some doctors will prescribe an anti fungal but tbh I don't think those will be super effective as I have taken those for unrelated infections and though I'm not a doctor I think the yeast can develop a resistance quickly. Plus these medications have other side effects. My completely unprofessional opinion is to try a medication as a last resort.

Good luck and I hope you are able to get rid of it quickly!

u/Manic_Alice · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I recently realized I'm likely dealing with fungal acne as well (I slapped some Lotrimin Ultra on my face and it started improving), so I started researching products for treatment and then maintenance. I read about the Noble bar but, like you, wanted to avoid the emu oil. Somebody in this sub mentioned another bar and I ended up ordering it. It will be here tomorrow and I'm super eager to try it!

u/LumpySpaceCase · 2 pointsr/eczema

I think you have possibly identified the culprit! There's definitely a chance your dandruff is yeast-related - one of the two species focused on in the linked article is the one that is known to create dandruff issues for people.(.pdf download).

Try zinc It's the active ingredient in Head & Shoulders shampoo, but in bar form. I have found that it's far more versatile than rubbing shampoo all over your bod and there aren't any fragrances that may exacerbate eczema'd skin and it's very easy to lather and use on scalp. (You can also find it in trial/travel sized if you just want to test.)

I would expect almost immediate results if the two of you are amenable to using the zinc both before and after being together. Good luck!

My daughter has extremely sensitive skin and all detergent based (SLS and the like) soaps irritate her skin. Here is what we found the most success with (after trying many!) They were not irritating: Dead Sea Salt Soap, African Black Soap, These are simple traditional soaps.

Good luck!

Body acne is usually caused by a type of fungus and my dermatologist recommended I either use this or this Lots of people have had good results from it though personally they just made my skin dry and irritated. My body acne was caused by my fabric softener and lotion that my skin did not like. So make sure to check those as possible culprits.

I use the murad vitamin C toner in the morning and then The ordinary's Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% at night. Vitamin C and Zinc will help with color correction but should be used opposite routines as they affect each ohter.

u/King_OKC · 1 pointr/OkCupid
u/margheritapizzasonly · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Whiteheads happen when there is dirt that is clogging the pore, so I think that it might be able to be resolved by:

  1. Using a different soap. Bar soap can be very drying sometimes and your skin might be sensitive to the fragrance. If you like bar soap, try using African Black Soap which is good for clearing acne:

    Or this body wash that has AHA, which is an exfoliant and is geared towards body acne:

  2. Although I know you said you want to shower every other day, you could always test out showering every day and see if that alone makes a difference. Sometimes fixing the problem has to do with other factors like are you taking a shower right after you work out so sweat doesn’t clog your pores, or even how often you change your bed sheets.

    It might also help to shower in warm water to open your pores and then before you get out, turn the water temperature to cold so it closes your pores. This could potentially fix the dry skin problem if you usually shower in hot water, which is drying.

    Added: Also make sure you’re washing all the soap off your back. If you think you’ve rinsed it all off, rinse again. Sometimes it’s just that there’s soap residue left (which also happens with a lot of bar soaps).

i HIGHLY recommend beard oils and pine tar soap, as it keeps things shiny and conditioned well. It can be touchy finding the right oils, as most have a fragrance. Honest Amish kinda smells like Jagermeister, and it's pretty strong, but I'd recommend Grave before shave oils and Grandpa's Pinetar soap

u/IzzyInterrobang · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

My SO has been washing his face with pine tar soap for three weeks now and hasn't had that stuff in the corner of his nose or any acne since (his was mild to bedin with but around his nose was bad). It dries my face out so you might want to double up on moisturizer though. They have some at gnc called Grandpa's pine tar soap. It smells like a camp fire too. The reviews on amazon are funny

u/The_numbskull · 1 pointr/beards

No, obviously.

But pretending they are only selling this to their own community

is just silly. It's available all over the world.

Your claim that they do not market this as "handmade artisanal" is false, as is your claim that it is only being made for the community.

They may have been doing that in 1923, but this is not 1923.

Pretty sure the folks over in Palestine aren't paying $15 a bar either.

They play up the "traditional" technique so they can overcharge hipsters. It's as obvious as the sky being blue.

u/thelyp · 1 pointr/acne

Yup, I find that if I sleep with moisturizer my skin is just greasy in the morning, I don't know why it's like that, it just works better for me.

I don't like any brand name black soap, they have too many extra ingredients that seems to make my skin worse. I use authentic raw African Black soap, if you have any local organic grocers they should have it, if not, you can find it on amazon or eBay. It will be packaged either in plastic wrap or a container and will state which country it came from. I'll include a link from a search I did give it a try .

I hope this helps you like it helped me. It's taken me years to find something that worked.

u/AsherGray · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I recommend giving African black soap a whirl. It's pretty cheap (about $4 from Target) and has been working on my skin. My acne usually triggers with stress, so trying to combat it can be difficult. I have been loving this soap so far and so have others.

u/iBeenie · 1 pointr/Dreadlocks

You don't need a special "dreadlock" shampoo. I've never bought a single dreadlock-oriented product and I just hit the two year mark a month ago.

Look for "residue-free" shampoos. I mostly use Dr. Bronner's (I dilute 2-4 drops in a water bottle before I apply it). Neutrogena makes a residue-free shampoo, but it smells like Egyptian perfume so it's not everyone's cup of tea.

I also really like african black soap but it isn't technically residue free. It makes my hair feel amazing though so I use it every week or two. It also comes in a bar form like Dr. Bronners but I feel like the bars are difficult to manage how much soap you're using and I will always end up using way more than I need to.

I also did the twist and rip method and my locs are now a few inches past my shoulders. I wash with shampoo every other wash. The washes in between I use just straight water to scrub my scalp and rinse my dreads really well. I try to be very cautious of what I put in my locs and I pay most attention to rinsing well and drying completely.

Ninja edit: Forgot to add, I have been using argan oil to help hydrate my hair after washes. I usually spray some in while I'm drying my hair. There are a few different brands and mixes you can get, but this is the one I have been using. I looked for the one that didn't mention anything about detangling when I bought it (some of the others mentioned they help detangle, so I just avoided those but I'm not really sure how good/bad they are for dreads).

u/scavengerdanger · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Hi all, newbie here, so please let me know if this is not the place for this question.

I believe I have sensitive skin. I used to get large pimples around my eyebrows, and on my cheeks and chin. My skin got dramatically better one day after I used Shea Moisture's Eczema/Psoiriasis soap at a friend's place, and I've been using either that or the troubled skin variant and have seen good results.

If I change my soap for even a day, my skin breaks out all over. Most recently this happened when I used my partner's soap.

I use the Shea Moisture Problem Skin moisturizer, which is great. I tried to switch to Aveeno at one point, and my skin turned red and rashy.

I use lipstick/highlighters as makeup, but almost never use concealer/foundation. Sometimes I'll put 100% tea tree oil directly on my skin, albeit in small quantities, and this dries out any small bumps on my skin.

What I'm looking for is for someone to "diagnose" my skin, and suggest any products that might work better than what I currently use, if possible. Please let me know if there's any more information I should provide, and thank you in advance for your advice!

u/kellybuMUA · 1 pointr/MakeupAddiction

I used to use only the BB solid cleanser that came with the blender, but that got expensive real quick. I follow Stephanie Nicole's channel and loved her luxury brush cleansing tutorial. She recommended a brick of African soap infused with shea butter. I tried it on my blender out of curiosity and it worked incredibly well, with identical results as the solid cleanser! The difference is that for about $8 you'll get easily 6x the product. The brick is huge and will last for a long time.

If your skin hasn't responded to antibiotics, it's possible you're dealing with Malassezia Folliculitis (fungal "acne"). This guide helped me clear my skin in about two months after spending five years dealing with pimples that wouldn't respond to typical acne treatments.

Of course, YMMV, but my current routine is nothing in the AM, PM shower using Head and Shoulders on hair/body (, Pantene on hair (, and sulfur soap on my face ( Right after shower, I slap on some aloe vera gel ( followed by MSM gel ( and then Cerave Baby Cream ( Twice a week I put Nizoral ( on my face and let it sit for 3-5 minutes and then wash it off. I've run this full routine by a licensed dermatologist who told me the sulfur and Nizoral would do the heavy lifting to keep the Malassezia at bay, and as far as I can tell those two items are the keystones of this routine. Everything else I use because the sulfur and Nizoral can be very drying. All of those products I pulled from that skincare blog, so I would read through it and see if the skin condition addressed there matches what you're experiencing.

Good luck. This is the routine that made my skin do a complete 180 in February after I saw no improvement from derm prescribed antibiotics and benzoyl peroxide.

u/e6c · 1 pointr/self

Ideally you would want one of the maximum strength varieties, but any variety will work. Really lather it up on a loofa and scrub hard all over your body. If you can talk to a dermatologist you should look into getting a sulfur soap too... if not, give this one a shot:

u/LNG · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Sorry in advance for the length of my comment but speaking from personal experience, your acne could be caused by fungus/yeast, not bacteria. It's called Malassezia Yeast and we all have it on our skin, but it can cause issues when it becomes overgrown. This overgrowth is called Pityrosporum folliculitis and looks almost identical to other forms of acne.

Other evidence that points towards fungus is the fact that you're breaking out on other parts of your body. The fungus spreads easily, especially if you give it a nice environment to thrive, like sweaty workouts!

I had perfect skin until I was about 22, and suddenly developed acne on my face, chest, and back. It was so bizarre and none of the traditional acne treatments were helping because, as I later figured out, most products are geared towards bacterial breakouts, including benzoyl peroxide. In fact, overuse of these products can cause fungus/yeast to take over the balance and cause all sorts of issues!

So, after months of research I came to the conclusion that I did indeed have fungal acne, so I started a routine to combat it. I was desperate at first, so I bought an anti-dandruff shampoo (because dandruff is commonly caused by fungus). [This one is great because its SLS free!]
( In the shower, I slathered it all all over my face and body, let it sit for 5 minutes, then rinsed it off. All of the breakouts started disappearing overnight, literally.

I felt strange using shampoo on my face so I decided to do more research and discovered that zinc is an amazing natural antifungal. So, I purchased this bar of soap, which contains 2% Pyrithione Zinc (an antimicrobial) and it was also very effective. I only use that about every three days now, and only on my body, because I have super sensitive skin and it is too drying for my face.

For my face, I now use Curology because they offer Zinc Pyrithione as an ingredient! My current formulation is .25% Zinc Pyrithione, 1% Clindamycin, and 4% Niacinamide and it is AMAZING. I'm now free of any and all breakouts.

I also use this mineral sunscreen because it uses zinc oxide - another form of zinc that is an antifungal!

For me, I have to maintain a routine or else the overgrowth returns, so I also take zinc picolinate supplements.
So, yeah, I hope this helps give some insight on your skincare journey!!


I also want to point out the necessity of being super gentle on your skin, in general. I always think "kill it with kindness" when it comes to skin issues. You definitely don't want to make things worse by over-exfoliating (chemical and physical), using harsh cleansers that strip your natural oils, and above all you must keep your moisture barrier in tip top shape because it will protect you from excess fungus and bacteria!

I decided to give you my whole routine as an example, so here it is! I focus on moisture.

I'm not sure if it's truly related to hypothyroidism, but I do have bouts of folliculitis, usually following a viral infection, and what seems to help me clear it up fast is using a bar of zinc soap on the affected area every day. I let it sit a bit before rinsing. It's worth a shot!

This is the one I got, though I think the Noble formula is a little more popular. My skin is generally normal to dry.

u/BidetofEvil · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

The medication isn't formulated for body acne but if you send them your photos of the body areas they'll give you advice! Generally they recommend zinc soap, like a previous user linked.

I have had great success using a cheaper brand instead that's on amazon

If you want to get an alternate brand, you're going to want at least 2% zinc.

Help needed please. 25 Y/O

Constant red and inflamed chin/under lip. Dry and Flakey skin around nostrils.

Current routine -

Morning and evening

Stridex Red Box
Vit C serum - morning
Vit E serum - Evening
Hadalabo Milk and Lotion
Occasionally Cetaphil

I've been using this recently out of desperation -

DermaHarmony 2% Pyrithione Zinc (ZnP) Bar Soap 4 oz - Crafted for Those with Skin Conditions - Seborrheic Dermatitis, Dandruff, Psoriasis, Eczema, etc.

I thought originally it was seborrheic dermatitis. I went to a dermatologist and was prescribed keto cream. I continued to use this for about 7 months with little positive response.

It actually seemed to spread to my chin or it's coincidental. It's driving me crazy :(

About three months ago I went to a new derm and was prescribed elidel cream.

I have used it every day for the last few months and it seemed better at first but now it's just flaking constantly.

How do I know what this is? Is it hormonal?

I'm trans and have recently changed hormones slightly but it wasn't around when the chin started.

I do shave every other day but as of this week I have put a pause on to see it helps relieve some of it.

I'm at a loss. I can't remove hair right now. Make up burns the effected skin but I do wear it occasionally if it's too troubling for me.

I know it's not pleasant to look at, sorry in advance.



Edit: Thank you in advance.

I don’t think this will necessarily cure it but I used this soap when I had a different skin condition (pityriasis rosea) and it provided a lot of relief and improvement for me. I read that you also have seborrheic dermatitis which is technically what it’s primarily used for but since it has both antifungal and antibacterial properties, it’s pretty multi-functional for different skin conditions!

u/picklesforbrains · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Zinc bar soap cleared up mine a ton! I leave the lather on my skin for a few minutes while showering. Noble gets recommended a lot, now I don't trust that either:( I bought this brand because it was cheaper.

u/insertnamehere405 · 1 pointr/SebDerm

This is what I'm using my diet seems to trigger flare-ups but I have it somewhat controlled. I'd suggest seeing a doctor and requesting blood work, it could be an Immune system disorder. DO you drink alcohol you should probably stop. Wash all bedding and towels don't use that trimmer again until you disinfect it. Eat healthy get more sun exposure limit sugar intake.

I get smelly junk, athletes foot, and acne under armpits and on shoulders. Is this product worth investing in, in order to cure my problems? Thinking of using it as my daily soap...

Oleavine Antifungal Soap with Tea Tree and Neem for Body, 12 oz

u/LeastCreativeSoul · 1 pointr/bigboobproblems

It definitely looks like tinea versicolor. This is how it looks on me.

I notice I get it in areas where I tend to sweat a little more than normal. Dermatologist recommended selsum blue shampoo, but I ended up looking on amazon and purchased this tea tee oil shampoo that’s really changed my life (if I’m persistent, it’ll disappear within 2 /3 weeks). That and a topical cream prescription “econazole nitrate, along with golden bond powder extra strength -medicated . A combination off these three help to relieve the itchiness and help get rid of them.

With the shampoo, I try to apply it on my dry skin at least five minutes before I get into the shower so I could just sit on my skin, then I use a body brush while showering to make sure I’m exfoliating and spreading it areas I can’t reach. Sometimes there’s a little burning sensation but it’s a minty sensation. If I have time before work, I apply the econazole and then I will stall until it dries and apply the golden bond powder over the areas affected. For me, it’s my neck, my shoulders, underboobs, the crook my elbows, my upper back , and my pubic area. Be forewarned that you will smell very minty for the rest of the day.

I don't really have a routine for body. I alternate between this and this for washing.

I'm a guy btw, so if you have any recommendations, the scent-free/more masculine scents are definitely more appreciated.


u/DumpsterCopier · 1 pointr/barstoolsports

get this, makes your taint tingle

u/idk-gfy · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I have been using african black soap for years, but i like the ones you buy in a big block a lot better than the shea moisture bars. I think many people find it to be quite drying, but it keeps my skin more clear and balanced than anything else I've ever used.

This is the sort i like:

u/giantbearshark · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I hear you. I would add that chemical exfoliants used to freak mine out when it was really active. Now I can use an aha for the flaky stage, but not if I get to the raw scaly stage. When it isn't active, I find that a bha helps to keep my eyebrow area healthy and clear, but I don't know if that's an individual/purely anecdotal circumstance.

I mentioned sulfur above, but I actually think this pyrithione zinc soap was better. It was recommended to me by my curology dermatologist when I was doing that subscription.

Noble Formula 2% Pyrithione Zinc (ZnP) Argan Oil Bar Soap, 3.25 oz

u/UnicycleHooker · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I've been on this prescription + doxycycline for about three weeks. Currently my routine is zinc soap and Hada Labo Hyaluronic Toner in the morning, and Cerave foaming cleanser, Hada Labo Hyaluronic Toner and my Curology prescription at night.

It's been too early for me to see a decrease in PIH/PIE, but it's definitely helped with inflammation and redness. I think I've seen a little purging on my forehead because I have more cc's than usual, but I'm not sure if that's purging or if it's from a switch in shampoo. I've been trying to be patient but it's hard, especially since I'm a chronic picker.

u/SpeechyKeen · 1 pointr/AsianBeauty

I use this soap like 2-3 times a week in place of my second cleanser. I like it!

Edit: I let it sit on my skin for about a minute before I rinse it.

u/pasizzle · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I sent my derm on curology a photo really similar to this one and she suggested Noble Formula 2% Pyrithione Zinc Bar Soap

u/CloudyWizard0420 · 1 pointr/microgrowery

That's the one I use also, here's a link! Comes with a calibration kit

VANTAKOOL Digital PH Meter, PH Meter 0.01 PH High Accuracy Water Quality Tester 0-14 PH Measurement Range Household Drinking, Pool Aquarium Water PH Tester Design ATC (Blue) (Yellow)

u/AcesHigh420 · 1 pointr/microgrowery

I have used ocean forrest and happy frog and have never seen pH levels like that. Im sure the meter is not giving you good readings directly in soil. Dont worry about it just pH the water you put in to about 6.5 and the soil should be a good buffer.

u/Pickupyerdogshit · 1 pointr/microgrowery

I got this one, they're all pretty much the same I'd imagine

u/anadune · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

This is a tool that you get what you pay for. I have the Thermoworks 8689. I like it, and it works really well. The probe stays wet in storage which many of the cheaper models don't do.

I had one of these styles and it certainly worked, but I was always having to re-calibrate it, even with frequent use. I can't say that I found it overly trustworthy.

u/ReallyHowSo · -1 pointsr/funny

Coffee addict here. Check out the reviews for this other caffeinated soap. I actually purchased some. Amazon

u/floraP0wer · -4 pointsr/piercing

posted what it looked like after i washed. couldn’t get all of it off but i tried

this is what i was using before i was told by reddit to not use it

u/pipingstone · -29 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

You could try adding Shea Moisture African Black Soap! I have started washing my face and body with this stuff and I’ve really seen a difference in my skin! I’ve attached an Amazon link, but you can get it at Walmart for a better price! It smells strongly of black licorice in case you’re sensitive to smells! There are many other African Black Soaps you can research as well, this brand is just my favorite!
