Dudu Osun African Black Soap for Acne/Oily Skin

Hello everyone,

About a month ago I was watching one of my favorite Vlog’s AprilJustintv and April mentioned a soap great for oily skin and acne. Which was so timely since one of my daughter’s is starting to have this problem. Then on her beauty channel AprilAthena7, she did a review of the African Black Soap Dudu Osun. I loved her honesty regarding the soap, so I order it, it was under $5.00.

It arrived quickly and she immediately started using it. Within a couple of days, we noticed a difference. Her acne and dark spots started clearing up and her oiliness greatly reduced. Since I saw such success I wanted to try it out. I don’t have acne, I have oily skin. The product work’s……for me a little too well. After a week of use. I saw that this product is not for daily use on my skin. For me this soap is great for once a week use, otherwise it’s too drying. As for my daughter, it works very well if she uses it 2-3 times a week or it becomes too drying for her as well.

Here are my thoughts on the product. I love that it’s 100 % natural. It has a great price point. It works great on oily/acne skin. This is not a product that should be used daily depending on your skin type. My opinion is to use 2-3 times a week. I would definitely buy this product for my daughter again and use a noted above.

  1. I have been using this for my skin and hair since 2013. I have an oily face and it really does help control the oiliness hands down. I’m just in love with Dudu Osun.

  2. I am a Nigerian, Dudu Osun is produced here but I never saw a need to use it, until I started having ache and my face was literally producing oil, lol.

    Decided to switch to an all natural ingredient soap, I was pleased to find Dudu Osun after researching. Been using it for a month and the result is perfect, I don’t have to keeping powdering my face all day long just to control my oily face. Dudu Osun has been helpful.

  3. Dudu osun worked for me the first month. My face become smooth and clear. I kept on using it but then I started getting ache. So reading this made me think maybe because I use it everyday, but because it’s too dry I use a creamy shower soap after every bath with Dudu osun . Is this a good idea?

    • For us we found that using more than a couple of times in a week to be very drying. So, what we do when we use it, is moisturize with coconut oil or oil of choice right after. We are still a little wet from the shower, before applying the oil. I hope this is helpful for you.

  4. I just started using it.. I went to a supermarket and an attendant recommended it. I am glad I bought it, my skin and face feels oil free .

    I definitely will recommend this product

  5. This soap really moisturise my skin and make me refreshed. I noticed my skin is smooth and glowing after a week of using this Dudu Osun soap. Am really in love with it forever.
