(I initially used authentic black soap to control occasional acne and eczema when I grew tired of going to different dermatologists that prescribed 'greasy' steroid based creams that did not work. Black soap and Shea butter has worked successfully for me throughout the years & I bet it can work for you too!)
Traditional African Black Soap Product Review:
I was once pretty neutral about traditional African black soap from Ghana because a ‘rose is a rose’ and ‘soap is soap’ right? Besides, I’m a Dove©, Olay©, and Rainbath© type of girl that would occasionally even venture into Victoria Secrets© or Bath and Body Works© to check out the new scents, and to get the hottest new show gel because I fallen in love with a scent that I just had to have.
Moreover, present me with a perfume set with matching shower gel--smelling pretty: still love Clinique© and Miss Dior© —well, let’s just say, you could’ve counted me in! Or so I thought at the time, but what happened? I tried the 'real' black soap!
So check me into the Betty Ford Clinic for soap addicts ‘cause’ I’m in deep, and I’m in for life. Yep, I finally found my new long time love, and his name is ‘black soap.’ I’m ‘done’ looking, for ‘real’ black soap is my new official permanent love, and who on this planet can replace that? (I know I still have soap issues, but I’ll digress in an attempt to try to stay on point.)
Now, I’ve reformed myself (somewhat) and I’ve used various forms of
black soap for about 14 years. Yeah, I tried the pretty bars in the
packaging that looked gorgeous against the accent tiles in my
shower. We fell out with each other as soon as I realized that I
had to clean myself, and the soap dye from the shower walls too.
(Who has that kind of time?)
So venturing on, I also tried the soap that’s processed from the original black soap. Worked okay, bar was nice and solid, nothing unusual, but it was just ‘soap,’ nothing special enough to make me want to stick with our temporary affair. (A reason, a season, or a lifetime…? Well this one definitely fit into the ‘reason’ category.)
So, still in quest of searching for the perfect ‘one,’ I stumbled upon this strange looking ‘oatmeal cookie looking stuff’ that had a unusual texture that was so intriguing that, of course, I just had to try it. Well, as to date, we’ve happily co-habituated together for 14 years with no foreseen plans to end our mutual attraction. I still love the way it smells; I still continue to be fascinated with the texture and the creamy lather I always get from the stuff, and I surely can’t forget the way it makes me feel: because my skin is never softer than after I’ve used my special African black soap. (Of course, I have to follow up with some Shea moisture—but that’s another story, for another time).
Because I’m still somewhat of a soap addict, African black soap
remains on my counter and in my shower. I don’t share my bathroom
easily, and I surely don’t share it with just any ole’ body.
So, yes it’s special, and it’s definitely a long term
