Ding-Ding-Ding!!! I am back! Back in the black soap gang!!
A few years ago, I was a die-hard Black soap fan and till now, I still feel like I am, but, things have happened. I progressed from liking black soap to actually making and customizing my own black soap to just completely abandoning black soap. It’s weird and confusing but I guess it’s a stage of life.
But now, I am back!
I came back because I started struggling with a lot of issues with I have not had in a while. I started struggling with dark spots on my body, chicken skin. rough and bumpy skin and a lot of products were not doing my skin any justice.
Stay Young Black Soap was one of my first comebacks into the black soap community. I saw a review on youtube that attracted me to this black soap and I decided to give it a try.
Product Details: Stay Young Black Soap is a Ghana-made black soap from Kam.
Price: 1,500 – 2,500naira. Price may vary depending on your location. Click here to buy.
Ingredients: Natural Honey, Distilled Water, Shea Butter, Cocoa butter as a natural vegetable oil, Glycerine, Botanical Extracts, Tumeric Extracts, Cinnamon Powder, Kojic Powder, Fragrance, Lemon and Honey Seckel.
My Experience: I was not disappointed coming back to black soap and this soap did not disappoint. The only thing I was not more prepared for was the drying that comes with using black soap. I had completely forgotten about how drying black soap can be but I must say Stay Young Black Soap is not as drying as Cottage Fresh Super Toner Black Soap or Debbitone Black Soap.
Scent: No strong smell but the smell is not bad either. It smells like regular black soap, nothing special about it.
Another thing that made this soap stand out more for me was that it contains Kojic Powder. Kojic powder is not something I have found in any black soap that is made commercially. People tend to add in their own Kojic Dip Powder and I see more kojic acid in bar soaps than in black soap, So, I was truly impressed.
I used this soap for a few weeks as expected and it brightened my skin, evened my skin out and dried out any form of blemish/pimple on my face. I also noted that during the time I used this soap, I did not break out as I usually did especially around that time of the month which was another plus. It serves a purpose and I find this black soap quite mild and gentle on my skin.
How to use: Use as your regular soap.
- It lasts very long. I have hard water at home, so it will definitely last longer if your water is softer.
- Lathers well.
- Best to help control pimples, acne and other breakouts.
- Contains Kojic Acid that helps to brighten the skin naturally.
- Not as drying as other black soaps.
- It is still a bit drying, but it is definitely bearable.
This is perfect for everyday use and for any or every skin type out there. I am really impressed with this black soap and I will definitely be buying it again. I tried to use the soap alone for a while before I finally decided to add a few things.
Tip: This is what I do to increase and customize the black soap for my use. I add the following ingredients to my Stay Young Black soap.
- Citro Clear Serum or White Now Oil or Carrot oil(it is also optional you can add any oil that works for your skin. The purpose of the oil is to make it less drying and active).
- 1 Tablespoon of Milk powder/goat milk powder.
Mix together, leave for 24 hours to sit and you have a glowing black soap. Simple and easy.
