The third black soap up for review is from Sahara Sunrise. This is my first time trying any product from this brand.
Price: NGN 1,050
Size: 4 oz.
Sahara Sunrise Black Soap Bath Gel is the liquid Black Soap that beats it all. It is deep cleansing and moisturizing, with lots and lots of luxurious lather. Excellent for both face and body. Its flip top and squeezable bottle make it so convenient and easy to use. [From the Sahara Sunrise website]
Black Soap cleanses deeply and promotes healthy skin. Use also for Black Heads, White Heads, Acne, Eczema, Rashes & Skin Fungus
Ingredients: Saponified Palm Oil, Aloe Vera, Honey, Water, African Fruits, Fragrance
Tip: Squeeze gel onto sponge or in your palm, lather your face & body then rinse off.
Fragrance: It has a light fragrance which is sweet and minty. Like a minty baked good.
Texture and Color: The soap is dark brown and runny. It is less viscous than honey
Packaging: The black soap gel comes in nondescript white, squeezable bottle. The cap of my bottle broke and it ended up leaking all over the place. 🙁 I ended up putting the soap in a small applicator bottle. The label is not remarkable in terms of design but it gets the information across.
Uses: Like most black soaps, you can use this from head to toe. I used this soap on my face and my body.
My Take: Before we start, I want to let you all know that I’m not a huge fan of body washes. I find that they leave a coating on my skin. I tend to wash with bar soap first before I use a body wash. Weird, but it works for me. When I saw ‘Black Soap Gel’ I thought that it would be more like black soap and less like body wash. Unfortunately, this wasn’t the case. When I used it on my face, it did clean off the oils like I’m used to. My skin gets quite greasy so I usually want all of that gone when I wash my face. I found that I had to follow up with Dudu Osun.
This gel is definitely not as drying as other black soaps. If you have an issue with the dryness of black soaps, you may like this one. It didn’t foam too much and I tended to use a bit too much. The 4 oz. container is almost finished and I only used it for about a month.
Would I purchase it again? No, I didn’t like the coating that it left on my skin. It’s definitely not as drying as some black soaps. If you find soap too drying, you may like this product.
