I ran out of my sacrosanct stash of black soap from back home in Ghana

So on a random stroll into Vitamin World, I stumbled upon this soap and was pleased by the ingredient list! Its size also attracted me- huge bottle, like the big bottles castille soap comes in.

I'm happy to say this cleanser is quite nice! Clearly gentle and has cleared up any blemishes I had with quickness!

I've always been wary of liquid black soap, but this has changed my mind. Imo, it's not as lathery as other soaps in general buuuut this could be because I remove my makeup with oil first and then use soap and water which could subdue the lathering a bit.

Thanks, Dr. Woods~

@midna


I change it up! But my emphasis is certainly moisture so I use ingredients that promote moisture.

Sometimes I will use water and honey or hyaluronic acid or glycerin. If I have it, I may also use aloe vera juice. I always like to add a pinch of vitamin c inside too, though!

You have to order it, but honey trust it's so worth it. 

Just make sure you cut that bish up in little squares for individual usage cause it melts down fast. 

When you wash use a scrubby mitten, well no.....you need your skin to get adjusted to it. It's going to burn a little when you first use it. Just wash and try and leave on for 3 minutes before rinsing. Later you can graduate to using with the scrubbie. 


That's the cheapest one I could find on ebay with free shipping. 

I would advise that you do a bit of exfoliating with dead sea salt and scrubs prior to usage though. I started using Kojie immediately and within 2 weeks my skin was lightening in spots because I hadn't exfoliated prior. It was very weird.

Kojie san soap, exfoliation with an LA peel or lotion, and depending on how dark it is a little Carowhite will even you out pretty quickly.

I love making my beloved toners. I'll never run out of LAA powder again!
I keep sleeping on vitamin C, I heard that you are supposed to apply externally and take Vitamin C pills. People on skincaretalk say it gives you a glow. 

Do you see drastic results from this?..and if so how long does it take for you to see them?

Thanks I'm scared to mess with acidic peels, so I'll just stick to the soaps
