About a year ago, I decided to try an unscented bar of soap in the shower. I hated it. I mean, I really hated it. I didn’t realize how important scent was to me as a primary component of my bar soaps. Perhaps lathering up with a bar of soap with a scintillating scent has produced a Pavolvian conditioning response from me, but, I have to have a soap in my shower that not only gets me clean, and moisturizing (sometimes exfoliating) but smells delicious. I found just that combination of properties in Soap Cartel Detox Campaign Bar Soap. I actually found that and more…
I should probably tell you how I discovered this lovely brand. While attending Cocktails and Couture’s requisite New York Fashion Week Soiree, I struck up a conversation with a young woman over a Hpnotiq cocktail. So no doubt I was doing most of the talking. Nevertheless, our convo wound around to her personal soap brand. Being the
serious beauty blogger product whore that I am, I of course told her that I had to try her soap out and review it on Blinging Beauty. Well, much to my delight, Dayana Ariza ducked out for a moment, and returned with a little gift bag. And the good news, is that I found just that combination of properties in Soap Cartel Detox Campaign Bar Soap.
Soap Cartel’s activated charcoal bar will take care of those pesky impurities and will bring you the right amount of detoxifying properties. Bursting with the proper amount of luxurious oils and the right blend of Eucalyptus and Australian Tea tree oil to satisfy many skin complexities; this natural soap goes deep into the skin to revitalize the pores and awaken your senses.
Why I love Detox Campaign:
As with most creative types, I’m driven by my senses. Soap Cartel sends you on a sensory journey that makes you want to keep going back.
Visual: The presentation, the packaging, of the Soap Cartel Detox Campaign soap is beyond lovely. Enclosed in a biodegradable burlap bag, the handcrafted soaps are stamped with the brand name and have a rough edge that speaks to its custom crafting. An informational card (with significant weight) that tells you how to care for your soap is enclosed.
Scent: Soap Cartel claims to have aromatherapy benefits, and it does. Simply opening the packaging and taking a whiff of the Detox Campaign bar is uplifting. It contains tea tree and eucalyptus oils, which are personal favorites for getting my engine revved.n I am the ultimate don’t-talk-to-me-in-the-morning person, however, after a shower with this soap, I am actually civil. Nice even.
Feel: Unlike other black soaps I have used, Detox Campaign did not leave my skin aching for moisturizer. Rather, my skin felt clean, not stripped, and hydrated. The black color comes from activated charcoal, which does a beautiful job at cleansing my skin.
Two more senses: I didn’t taste this soap but I can attest that it’s YUMMY! And you heard it from me—Soap Cartel Detox Campaign is a must-have.
Pro: Moisturizing, aromatherapy benefits, long-lasting bar
Buy again: Yes
