Hey Glow Gang,
I hope your week is going great.💖
I have really been looking forward to reviewing the Dudu Osun African Black Soap and I am so glad I finally got to it. I have been using it for about five years and it’s definitely one of my favourite beauty items.
African Black Soap is a type of soap that originates from West Africa. Plant ash is the core ingredient of this age-old cleanser. Another notable ingredient is Camwood powder that’s rich with cleansing and rejuvenating properties. Tropical Naturals, a company based in Nigeria, is the firm behind the Dudu Osun brand.
The soap comes wrapped in plastic material, inside a paper box. I personally like the fact that the ingredients are listed on the packaging. The soap is actually dark brown in colour and when cut up it can be a bit crumbly. I love it’s mostly made out of natural ingredients. It has worked fantastically as a cleanser for my oily acne-prone skin. It’s very effective at getting rid of excess oil, impurities and makeup on the skin, leaving it squeaky clean and de-congested. However, it can get a bit drying so I would advise you to moisturize your skin immediately after washing your face and if you have dry skin, avoid double cleansing. I have noticed that my skin has been much clearer since I began using it. It also gives my face an exfoliated fresh feel, especially after a long hot dusty day.
I am all about saving my coins! One of the reasons I re-purchase this product is due to its affordability. It costs about Kshs. 320 or Kshs. 500 depending on the retailer. Plus, it lasts me about 3 months! That’s a pretty long usage period, in my opinion, considering I cleanse my face twice a day. It’s definitely a steal!
