I’ve heard about African Black Soap before but didn’t really look into it or pay much attention. I was at a near by flea market one day and noticed a table with BIG rock looking things. Curious, we walked to the table and they were selling Shea butter and this African Black soap. Remembering I’ve heard about it before I decided to try it. This PACKED FULL (the cover barley bits on tight) container was $5.50. I asked if he had a half portion and he offered me the whole thing for $3.50 (I like to believe it was from my GREAT bargaining skills, haha, jk)!
The cover lists the 3 ingredients in this product, palm oil, kernal oil, and water. It also lists the benefits of this african black soap.
This is what it looks likes. It reminds me of chunks of dirt. The smell isn’t good but it’s not bad either. The smell is very faint and not even noticeable actually.
When I use this I get a little chunk, add water, make it into a good foamy lather, and use on my face.
This stuff is amazing! It takes away everything, even my MAC foundation (usually I have to do 2 washes to make sure its completely off)! It leaves my skin clean and also matte. As some of you know my skin is oily and gross and uggghhhh.. this is one more new product that is helping it become less “ugggghhh”! This probably won’t be good for people with dry skin since it is kind of drying and even left me really dry a couple of times. I’ll probably be using Egyptian Magic (I use to hate this stuff but its growing on me, review to come soon) after using the African Black Soap next time. I’m going to use this as my only facial cleanser for a month or so and give you guys an update!
Has anyone tried this before? I’ve read and seen lots of good reviews on Youtube and Makeupalley!
