I've been using castille soap for a long time.. only as a body wash though. 

if you want something multi-use id probably just do the oil cleansing method.. and use the oils+aloe as a moisturizer.. all over  

for an exfoliator use the oils as well but add either sugar (i use a rock-like sugar, forgot the name) or brown sugar.. i want to try coffee grinds. i add a lil vitamin e and honey sometimes. 

i also try to do honey/milk baths. 
i don't care for baths but I'm trying to use the rock sugar/honey/oils all over.. then get in the bath. my skin is sooo  smooth afterwards 

speaking of.. i really really need to exfoliate my face... like tonight

which aloe do you drink? just straight aloe or one of those sweet aloe juices with the pulp?

I've been using it on my face.. havent noticed a huge difference.. i kinda wanna try drinking it..

- Noxzema!

You shouldnt use it on your body, but it's cheap so who cares. It lasts forever, and it'll keep your skin pretty  (seriously!)

- I love (palm kernel) black soap, but I feel your pain, it's messy as hell. And it can be a bit drying. I go off and on with it

-I use baby oil in the shower right before I get out. You'll be soft as hell and it's cheap

-I know nobody would agree with my using Palmer's on my face, so I'll stop there LOL

i tried baby oil and it wouldn't absorb for me...just like the shea butterLOL

isn't noxzema for acne? or do i have two products confused....

i do need one product specifically for acne...i rarely get acne anymore but they come every blue moon out of nowhere...

but i spray peroxide on my face so that combats acne i think lol

Naw I originally thought Noxzema was for acne too when my friend told me about it.. but it's not. I don't fool with acne cleansers, they make me break out. I used to get a monthly spot around my period, but they rarely come at all anymore

With the baby oil.. I put it on.. rub it real quick, and then rinse off. It doesn't all come off, and doesn't totally absorb, but after I get done drying off, I'm not super greasy. If I'm not too lazy to put on my favorite lotion (Palmer's cocoa butter or Gold Bond Ribbons in the can) then I'm super soft.. good for when youre not sleeping alone Wink

hmmm I never heard of spraying peroxide on the face. I need to exfoliate too like coco. I usually just use baking soda
