Nubian Heritage African Black Soap

ponedeljek, oktober 28, 2013

African Black Soap has supposedly been used for centuries to treat eczema, blemishes, psoriasis ans oily skin. I don't really suffer from any of those "ailments", but there is a little hype behind this soap and since it's really affordable, I decided to get one for myself and use it as a morning face wash.

It looks like a regular bar soap, but bigger, black and with bits of oats. The scent is fantastic - it smells like fruity bubble gum.  It is the creamiest bar soap I've ever tried, lathers so well and forms a thick, velvety and soft foam that feels so good to massage into the skin. And it's all rainbows and unicorns until you need to wash it off. Then that awful squeaky clean feeling appears - my pet peeve. Also, if the tiniest drop of soap gets in the eye, it hurts like a *insert bad word here*. Though it's black, the foam is not that dark and washes off completely with no residue. Surprisingly, my skin doesn't scream for a moisturiser afterwards. Actually it feels quite comfortable and I had no dry patches since I started using it (Dove sensitive soap caused dry patches with one use). As I said, my skin isn't acne prone, it's more combination dry, but I do get an occasional spot. This soap didn't help prevent any new spots nor treat them or help the skin heal faster. In short, it's just an average non-drying cleanser with no special bonus advantages. Its makeup removing abilities are also limited.


It's a nice bar soap, but maybe more suited as a body wash, mostly because of the eye hurting part. It's not drying, smells great and is quite cheap for a big bar of soap. It's nothing revolutionary, but still worth trying out. I got mine on iHerb for 2.5 € (141 g).

Have a great day!

  1. Se popolnoma strinjam.:) Jaz imam bolj občutljivo kožo in mi sploh ni bilo dobro za obraz-sem dobila kar madeže. Drugače pa dobro za telo ali v končni fazi roke:) In diši božansko!

    1. Ni ravno najbolj nežno, glede na to da prekleto boli če zaide v oči, ampak za telo je pa čisto v redu :) Jup, vonj je pa awesome :)

  2. Tole zgleda kar super in predvsem poceni. :) Si to naročila na tej strani: http://www.iherb.com ? Se sploh splača naročati v Slovenijo (predvsem me zanima zaradi carine in davka)?

    1. Iz iHerba ja. Najcenejša poštnina je 4$, paket pride zelo hitro glede na to, da je iz Amerike. Če pa nočeš davka plačat pa moraš kupit za manj kot 22€. Se kar splača ker imajo primerne cene :)

  3. Tudi jaz ga imam, torej proti mozoljem ne deluje. Preverjeno!
    Meni preveč izsuši kožo, in skoraj vedno mi pride v oči in potem upijem v kopalnici, kot, da bi me klali.
    Torej vse kar napišejo se sliši oh in sploh super, nakoncu se pa izkaže, da ni.. Vsaj pri meni.
    Edino, ker je, je vonj, pa še ta čez čas zgine, vsaj pri meni.

    1. Ne, proti mozoljem nima efekta. Meni sicer ni izsušil kožo, ampak sem vedno takoj po čiščenju uporabila kremo. Če pa zaide v oči je pa izjemno neprijetno :/

    2. Maš mogoče kako idejo kaj ima efekt proti mozoljem in ni preveč agresivno? V osnovi je moja koža zelo občutljiva, hormoni me nekaj hecajo in sem vsa mozoljasta. Pa videz me še nebi toliko motil, če to nebi bile grozno boleče zadeve po čelu :((

    3. Z mojimi izkušnjami ti ravno ne morem pomagat. Sem ena izmed srečnic, ki sem imela večinoma čisto kožo in ni na prav nič občutljiva. Če pa dobim kakšen mozolj se pa kaj dosti ne obremenjujem. Je pa moj brat preizkusil praktično vse, od lekarniških zadev je najdlje uporabljal Exfoliac, samo je potem začel jemat Roaccutane in ima zdaj že kar nekaj let čisto kožo. Je imel pa hude akne.

    4. Jaz sem tudi bila ta srečnica, dokler nisem začela KT jemat in jih nehala.. :/
      Hvala ti!

  4. Uf, sem uporabljala black soap sicer od ene druge znamke in je bilo ravno tako, kot si napisala. Mi je pa malce izsušilo kožo, na dolgi rok. Drugače je bilo fantastično milo.

  8. Izgleda kot kakšna budget zadeva ikoničnega črnega mila Erno Laszlo. Ampak mislim, da so sestavine dost drugačne..
