Review of Everyday Minerals Everyday African Soap by blondeambitioned
I have been crazy about most of Everyday Minerals' stuff lately, especially their all-natural beauty bars, soaps, and lotions! This was one of the last products I tried.... mainly because I have very temperamental, oily, acne-prone skin that throws a temper tantrum every time I use a new skincare product. I have stuck to the same cleanser for years, in fear that anything else will make me break out. I thought I would give this a try since I am trying to move to all-natural products, and I am so glad I did! I thought that the claim that African Soap clears up breakouts is a myth (I've heard that said about many things) - but it's true!! I have been using this every morning and have not experienced ONE breakout. It also has helped relieve the itching with patches of eczema! For me, that's a very big deal! I am especially surprised because the soap gives you that 'sweaky clean' feeling (due to the glycerin, no doubt), which made me think that the natural oils were being stripped dry from my face and would cause me to break out worse... but that has not happened at all. I have been using this in the winter and have not felt that this has irritated or dried out my skin.
For $3.50 for a bar, you really should give it a try!! I am happy I did :)
