I've been familiar with Coastal Scents for quite a while now.
I remember when my older sister always used to buy tons and tons of palettes (eyeshadows, blushes, bronzers, etc.) from them.
I was still a little girl back then so I was really fascinated with makeup.
I'm sure most of you guys who attended IMATS know about this, but when I walked by the Coastal Scents booth, I saw that they had this "mini sweepstakes" where you have to drop this token and you'll win something, depending on where it falls. (I hope I explained that right. LOL.)
Anyways, I won a sample of an African Black Soap.
AFRICAN BLACK SOAP
Coastal Scents African Black Soap is the real deal! This soap is imported directly from Ghana, Africa where members of the Sekaf Village manufacture and produce it from all natural ingredients. The Ghanaians have used the African Black Soap for centuries.
There are 4 types of African Black Soap: Nuna Black Soap Unscented, Nuna Black Soap Shea Butter, Nuna Black Soap Cocoa Butter, and the Tama Black Soap.
You can order a whole set, which includes all 4, at Coastal Scents for only $12.95.
It is said to:
- relieve acne, oily skin, and blemishes
- reduce skin irritations and conditions (Eczema)
- remove dirt, oils, and makeup
- leave skin soft and clear
Since it's super tiny, I only use my African Black Soap for my face.
I breakout A LOT so I wanted to experiment and see if it will actually help clear my acne.
I have been using this for about a week now, and I got to say that I AM IN LOVE WITH IT!
It definitely dried up my breakouts. I had a fresh pimple the first time I used it, and the next day, it was almost gone. That's pretty amazing if you ask me.
It leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth.
It lathers up really nicely so a little goes a long way.
It has an earthy smell but I don't really notice the fragrance. It's almost non-existent.
I've read other reviews before and most of them said how the soap dries out their skin.
The very first time I used it, I found that it softened up a few dry spots on my face.
But after a few more washes, it did start to kind of dry out my skin. So make sure to moisturize right after.
Have you guys tried African Black Soap? How did it work out for you?
