  1. Best facial soap for sensitive skin!! Love at first pump! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 6th 2017

    I used to purchase other black soaps from a different company, but they never did what I wanted them to do. A friend gave me Alaffia's Peppermint Black Soap as a gift and I knew I found a winner from the first use. I used it for about a month and saw a real change in my skin. I wasn't breaking out as often, my skin was softer, and I could see acne scars fading. Alaffia's black soap is THE BEST because of the simple, gentle ingredients. I have super sensitive skin, so the simpler the product, the better. This leaves your skin so soft and clean and never feels like I'm stripping anything off. The amazing peppermint scent is an added bonus. Please don't ever change the formula!!! I rely on it so much to keep my skin clear!!!! Love this product so much! If you have sensitive skin and can't find something that works, this is it.
