25 Nov Bath Kandy- Black Pepper and Turmeric Soap
Bath Kandy (Luxé Beauty’s Bath and Body product range) is no stranger to the site. The post on Goats Milk Lotion and the Garri Scrub Bar may have broken the Internet. EVERYONE went out and got it (thank you btw, you guys are the best- I felt super flattered. The Nicole Code is making moves!). Now let me introduce you to their glorious Turmeric and Black Pepper soap.
Clearly I’ve gone Turmeric crazy! I cleanse my face with the Brightening Turmeric Black Soap from Fig Health Store morning and night, and I use the Turmeric and Bentonite Clay Mask about 4-5 times a week. If I could get my hands on raw Goats Milk, I’d probably do a Turmeric and Goats Milk mask too. Does anyone know where I can get some in Lagos? Please see me in my office (comments section).
I had been patiently waiting for this soap to ‘Cure’ (set properly by letting the water evaporate so it becomes firmer) for about 4 weeks. As soon as it was ready on November 10th (Yes, I set a reminder on my phone. No, I’m not ashamed. Yes, I have problems), I RAN to the store to go pick it up.
So by now- because I keep going on and on about it- I’m sure we all know about Turmeric’s brightening and anti inflammatory properties, but did you know that Black Pepper is loaded with Vitamin C and antioxidants? So its an awesome anti aging ingredient to have in your arsenal. It also brightens skin and kills bacteria.
I like this soap A LOT. It has a Shea butter base, and a blend of oils- one of which must be peppermint as the scent really comes through. Which is fine by me, I’d rather not smell of turmeric and I find the minty scent invigorating. I really like that it doesn’t dry the skin out because of all the oils in it (obvs), but it definitely leaves the skin nice and clean. It is also EXCELLENT for shaving- again because it is very moisturising, it gives a closer, smoother shave.
It is a great product. I actually bought another bar yesterday (and some Goats Milk lotion too, no surprise there).
Did you try the Goats Milk lotion or the Garri scrub bar I mentioned in a previous post? Have you tried Bath Kandy’s Turmeric and Black Pepper Soap?
