As I always lay emphasis on, I’m not exactly someone you’d call a beauty expert but due to popular demands I’ve decided to start sharing my personal skincare tips with you on this little blog of mine. Today I’d be talking about how I started using black soap and why I continued using it.
The black soap I use is the Dudu Osun black soap. I used to use Dove cream bars but I was having mine imported as I don’t really trust Lagos stores to sell original products and I can’t deal with any skincare problems. Thanks to the increase in the exchange rates, I started seeking another alternative bathing soap and decided to give the popular black soap a try and I’m glad I did.
So far I’ve not had any skincare issues and my skin is even better now. I do not leave the black soap on my face for any longer than necessary for a special treatment, I just use it for a general bath. The soap foams well and doesn’t smell bad like the locally made ones do. The best part about the Dudu Osun soap is that it’s made from natural ingredients so you wouldn’t have to worry about harmful chemicals and ofcourse how inexpensive it is. I don’t think I want my Dove cream bars back TBH.
I also tried using the black soap as shampoo (ofcourse not the same bar I use in having my bath) and the result was splendid. It still foams well with my hair, strips my hair of all excess oils and dirt. I’ve used this twice now to wash my hair and each time my hair feels fluffy after the wash. As I stated earlier it’s made of natural ingredients so you don’t have to worry about parabens.
Pros : Read this post again!
Cons : It melts away easily once in contact with water so you have to keep it in a cool dry place ALWAYS.
Remember that beauty and skincare products do not always give the same results for everyone, the fact this works for me doesn’t necessarily mean it would work for you but also note that you wouldn’t know what your skin/hair likes if you don’t try out different products.
Have you tried using the Dudu Osun black soap? What’s your experience like? Do share with me, I’d really love to hear from you…
