Rated 1 out of 5 by Simone123 Very disappointed
I used this for the first time last night, I used the soap with the brush, the brush is very soft and I was gentle with it on my face. Within half an hour of using it my face went extremely red and sore, my face is still bright red and burning this morning. I haven't tried the scrub and sad to say I won't be I will be returning this product. I don't generally have sensitive skin but I'm assuming this product is too harsh for my skin, was surprised as the soap says it's a gentle cleanser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Qhappy Great for oily skin
This is my first introduction to Erborian products and I am impressed. I have been using the black soap product for the last week and am amazed at how smooth it has made my skin feel and look after just a few days. The cleansing brush is so soft against the skin that it feels luxurious. I have also noticed that the enlarged pores on my nose have begun to reduce in size leaving the skin looking much smoother and clearer. For me the very best result of the soap is how great it is for mattifying my oily t-zone. Even with a primer for oily skin applied before foundation, my face usually starts to look oily within a couple of hours. However, not anymore! Now my face make up still looks fairly matte at the end of the day and I haven't had to blot my face throughout the day either. I have only used the face mask once, but it also left my skin feeling clean and smooth.
In terms of a beauty routine, I still start by cleansing with my regular cleanser. In the morning I follow that by massaging the black soap onto my t-zone with the brush. After rinsing I pat my face dry and then tone and moisturize as usual. In the evenings I do the same again but I use the black soap all over my face because it helps to remove all of the makeup and impurities from the day.
Pros: great for oily skin, mattifes skin, tightens pores, lifts impurities from skin, fresh clean fragrance, can see results fairly quickly, the soap doesn't make skin feel dry.
Cons: price, soap doesn't have a tin container for storage
