Esocare African Raw Black Soap Review*

I’ve read a lot about African Raw Black Soap, so have been keen to try it for a long time. I was very excited when Esocare sent me some to try out.

African Raw Black Soap is one of the most beneficial, yet unheard of soaps you will ever find. It is a natural source of vitamins A & E, iron and an all-natural cleanser. It helps relieve rashes, scalp irritations, oily skin, dry skin, acne, blemishes, eczema, and other skin problems.

It has a delicate texture and a natural, earthy smell. It is not oily, and can be used for hands, face, body and hair. It’s most commonly found in Ghana, however other countries have their versions of black soap as well. Other words for black soap are Alata Samina, Anago Samina which comes from the Twi language in northern Ghana.

I’ll be honest, I’d never actually seen African Raw Black Soap before, so didn’t know what to expect. It has a very unusual appearance, but I think this is because we are so used to laboratory made, chemical based beauty products. It has a very natural, raw and organic appearance.

I have rather dry skin, so have been using it in the shower as a body wash. It lathers up so much! I did not expect it to create so many bubbles. It leaves your skin feeling very soft and extremely clean after using it.  It feels so much like a way of pampering yourself in the shower, and you know you’re also treating your skin well.

I recommend buying this soap through Esocare because, all their products are plant based, vegan and organic. Suitable for the whole family and can be used, on hair and skin.

Each product is packed with an affirmation card in which you use whilst nourishing yourself. It is owner Luna Afriyie‘s belief that, absorbing an affirmation with your daily skin care/ beauty routine helps to recharge and reprogram your subconscious mind. She is trained in Neuro Linguistics Programming, so understands a lot about psychology and the power of the subconscious mind.

Try adding this product and affirmation into your daily routine and I’m sure you will feel the difference!

L’Oréal Infallible Total Cover Review

When I saw there was a new foundation out which claimed to be able to cover just about anything, I was a bit skeptical. Often I find that even my favourite foundations still let a bit of rosacea peek through or make you look like a clown. This one is different.

I popped to Boots to buy the foundation and I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was 3 for 2 on the range… and you got a free blender!

Palette

The concealer palette is now a new favourite of mine. In the past I’ve tried  primers with yellows and greens in to neutralise redness and they’ve either, made me look ill or dried my skin out. The green in this palette is very creamy and blends into the skin easily, so it’s not like a thick layer on your face.

The main thing which impressed me was the blue section, to help cover dark circles. I’ve never found anything which covers up dark circles as well as this. Often, under eye concealers can fall in the creases too much. This is lightweight, so it doesn’t do that.

Foundation

I expected the foundation to be VERY heavy looking and feeling to be able to cover up my rosacea and acne marks. It really isn’t. It is surprisingly lightweight and natural looking but completely covers my blotches. I didn’t even need to apply concealer to my redder areas-which is new to me.

I also think the porcelain colour is better than standard porcelain. I often look washed out if I use porcelain, but anything darker is too dark. This has got a bit more of a warm tone to it, so it looks natural and makes your face look healthy.

Fixing Mist

The fixing mist is great for keeping the make up exactly how you left it in the morning, without drying your skin out.

I highly recommend trying this, if you too suffer with rosacea or redness. Much more affordable than a lot of the high coverage brands and not as cakey!
