I have been fighting acne for 40 years. I have tried just about every cleanser on the market. I have been used almost every acne medicine on the market. My daughter and I were visiting Nashville recently and wandered into Konadu's. She suggested this soap and I bought a sample bar. After the first use, I knew this was something special. My face actually felt clean....deep down, truly clean....and refreshed....not stripped dry. After just a week, I have drastically reduced the acne medicine I am using and my face has NEVER been this clear!! I can even go out of the house without any foundation on. I am so happy with this soap, that I am ordering more for me, my daughters, my neighbor. I LOVE this soap, and am so happy that I found it!!
