Late last year I received some samples of Black Magic Soap to try out. One Hand Washes The Other is the creator of the ORIGINAL Black Magic soap.
The Website Claims:
Claims to be used to clean your face, not too drying or too oily.
I have to say that I love how the description is written up for each ingredient in the soap, as well as listing what is generally believed that each ingredient does, but that the soap doesn’t claim to do all of those things.
saponified oils of coconut palm and safflower, glycerine, purified water, sorbitol, sorbitan oleate, soy bean protein, french green clay, activated charcoal, tea tree, grapefruit, lemongrass rosemary and peppermint essential oils, vitamin e, calendula
This is vegan.
$1.25 for .5 oz sample, $5.25 for 4 oz.
Does it live up to its claims?
Yes, and then some. This is a soap that I feel is calming on my face if my skin is freaking out. If I’ve got a zit, it will help remedy it. The scent reminds me of peppermint or licorice (and while I’m not a fan of anise or licorice), I rather like this scent. Additionally, I know when Ray starts using a cleanser, it’s gotta be good because he rarely varies from his routine and he loves this stuff. To be honest, I am not generally a fan of bar soap or cleanser for any part of the body, but I like Black Magic so much I don’t mind it.
Would I purchase?
Yes. In fact, I’ve purchased in another form! I think this is an amazing facial cleanser that Becca has come up with and I do think that it is well worth it to give it a try.
Samples sent for consideration. All opinions are my own.
