I’m going to try to start posting a bit more of my skincare routine here on my blog. I love reading about others routines, but mine is so simple I never really thought to share it. I try to stick to products that are natural, effective and inexpensive. First up is a cleansing bar I’ve been obsessed with that I stumbled upon by chance.
sorry for the stock photo, my bar is currently a sliver & someone threw away my package

I’ve been using nothing but Dudu Osun Black Soap to wash my face for the last three to four months when a friend gave me a bar, and I’m pretty sure I’m going to keep using it for as long as they make it. Now African Black Soap is nothing new but I had only tried Shea Moisture’s version which is more processed, stained my tub, and just didn’t do as much for my skin.
I like to lather the bar in my hands and rub the suds all over my face like I would any other liquid face wash. Since I wash my face in the shower at night I like to let the suds sit on my face while I wash up my body (probably 3-5 minutes) and then rinse. I’ve found that Dudu Osun leaves my dry skin feeling clean without feeling too tight or dryed out. I’ve never had severe acne but I used to get the occasional zit which would always take forever to go away and leave a dark mark. Since I’ve been using this soap I have not had that problem at all! I rarely get break outs even my usual hormonal break out for during “that time of the month” go away so much quicker. My overall skin tone also appears to be so much more even. This soap also naturally exfoliates the skin which makes my face look so radiant and glowy. I’ve also used this soap on my body and I really like how smooth it makes my skin feel and how even the tone looks.
