The Bad: As with other black soap, Dudu-Osun lathers brown rather than clear or white as other soaps. So the soap residue and drip leaves a brown mess on the soap holder and its surroundings.
The Bottom Line: I paid $2.99 at my local India's Sweet and Spices store for one bar of soap. It can also be had for a similar price from Amazon.com. It's a good soap. But nothing outstanding. The brown residue and the mess it leaves in the soap container is probably a deal-breaker. There are other soaps that are just as good, but won't leave the mess.
