I have been reading through this thread over the last few days, and have definitely been intrigued! I have had acne since I was 13 and thought this could be my ticket to clear skin! I tried it immediately, have been using cheapo processed honey (all I had in the house). It rinsed off so clean and my face felt wonderful! Some of my blemishes were starting to dry up, but I got a couple of new ones, so I kind of broke even (except for the fact that my skin felt so soft). So I started adding the BS. But because the honey has the glycolic acid (for exfoliating), and the BS neutralizes acid (my dh says he uses it to clean his truck's battery posts when they get that battery acid on them), I thought maybe using them separate would be better. So I started washing with the honey, and then making a "splash" with bs and water, to rinse with after doing a honey mask. I don't know, I'm winging it here.
So I have had a slight improvement, and thought I'd go for the raw honey. I find it doesn't rinse off as smooth, I still feel sort of sticky-ish. NOt sure why. Today I tried an aspirin mask with honey & aspirin, and it feels really good.
I was wondering about the black soap (to clean before using honey, since I have super greasy skin), and the shea butter - where is everyone buying this stuff? I can't find it anywhere, and when I google it, I find all these sites for using black soap and shea on dreadlocks
: Help! Would love to get my hands on some shea. WOuld like to be able to buy it in a store too, instead of online (shipping soaks ya!).
Tx! This thread is great! Looooooooooving it!
