Using 1 tsp per day, a can will last some time.  Does the product stay good that long?

You can purchase black soap at Walgreens.  I prefer the natural kind from Amazon, but the Shea Moisture brand is decent as well.  


In Topic: Black Soap Caused More Breakouts?

I do not know about that brand of black soap. I get mine from Amazon, the raw natural stuff.  Have you used the Argan oil in the past without breaking out? Every time I put that stuff on my face, I break out like instantly, unfortunately.  Black soap is a bit drying at first.  It takes a couple weeks for your skin to get used to it, which would cause the itching from the dryness.  Dryness is not a bad thing to active acne.

My guess is your acne is irritation from shaving.  Take a look at what you're shaving with and see if there could be an irritant.  I would recommend using black soap to shave with.  It lathers up great and is very acne friendly.  As the others have said, your acne is light.  I would avoid any BPO or harsh treatment.  You could use a light SA for exfoliation, but the black soap would exfoliate enough as well.
