Like I meantion earlier 80% of dudu osun testimonies is about getting rid of acne, rashes and bumps. This soap did just that on my acne, infact it really delt with my acne by drying them off after 3 times of usage, it also got rid of blackheads on my nose and cheek area.

Evens Out The Skintone.

Talking about my skin tone? Dudu osun black soap, evened out my skin tone, (the difference was clear), this is the least I expected from this soap, honestly I never knew this soap could brigten the skin, untill I went through the ingredients list again and discovered it contains lemon and lime juice which are known to contain natural skin lightening ingredients such as vitamin C and AHA’s. (Alpha Hydroxy Acids).

Great Make-up Remover

Dudu osun black soap worked great in wiping away my make-up. Isn’t it amazing?
Since dudu osun deeply exfoliates and cleanses the skin, I figured out it could be a good make-up remover, and when I tried it, behold, dudu osun black soap stripped off all the makeup off my face with a deep pore cleansing.

How did I use it to remove my make-up?

I wet my face with water and rub the soap on your face. Wash it off after some minutes, and my face was make-up free in a matter of some minutes.

Lathers Richly.

Dudu osun black soap lathers richly and nicely, you just have to rationalize the way you use it, because it lathers really well and that’s also one of the reason why I love it even the more.

Smells Great.

The smell? Hmmm, it smells really organic. Actually, though, raw African black soaps has an unpleasant smell. But in the case of dudu osun black soap, it smell really nice, although it contains fragrance but I’m certainly sure that the fragrance isn’t synthetic. And it contains no artificial colours, preservatives and Bio degradable.

What I Don’t Like About Dudu Osun Black Soap.

It Dries Out and Tightens The skin.

Although this soap contains honey and aleo vera which are known to nourishe and hydrates the skin, but still this soap dries out and tightens the skin, but I figured out that applying a moisturizer after using this soap will counter the effect and balance your skin pH level.

But for the fact it really dries out and tightens the skin, makes it one of the Cons of this soap. So my advice especially to individuals with extreme dry and senstive skin is to apply a moisturizer immediately after using this soap. This will retain the moisture in your skin and keep your skin hydrated. You can read our review on best facial moisturizers and moisturizing lotions.

Stains The Bathroom.

Because of the soap colour, it may stain your bathroom after use, well this isn’t really a problem for me. But i figured it may be a problem to others. But not to worry, it will definitely wash away after bathing. Just ensure you rinse off your bathroom.
