Product Review: Cleopatra's Choice - African Black Soap

Hello Beauties!

How many of you have heard of the numerous benefits of African Black Soap?  This magical soap is known to unclog pores, which is great for those with oily skin, as well as relieve the symptoms of eczema and psoriasis.  After hearing all the wonderful ways it can be used, I was excited when Cleopatra's Choice offered me the opportunity to review their African Black Soap.

Cleopatra's Choice states that their African Black Soap is..."genuine organic and all natural ingredients and 100% pure, organic Shea butter, helps heal acne and other blemishes and relieves, symptoms due to eczema and psoriasis, cleanses both skin and hair naturally..."





Pros

  • Lathers Extremely Well
  • Did Not Cause Breakouts
  • Skin Felt Extremely Clean
  • Affordable (Under $5)

Cons

  • Extremely Drying on My Skin

My Thoughts

I do want to be honest in how I used this product.  I did not use this soap on my face.  I am very adamant about using a skincare system, so instead I used it on my body.  For use on the body, I was very disappointed.  It caused my skin to be dry and itchy.  This, however, is not the results that many of my friends have had so I'm thinking this may just be the reaction it had to my skin and not its overall effects.

Would I Purchase?

No.  I wouldn't purchase the actual bar soap; however, if they had a skincare system with a cleanser, toner and moisturizer, I would be all on it!

Have you tried African Black Soap?

  5. Black soap does the same thing to my skin. The only time it worked well for me was when I was pregnant and uncharacteristically oily. 'Preciate your honesty. At least we know we can trust you!
