What Makes Black Soap Different:
Black soap is made with rare tropical honeys that are known for softening the skin and creating a smooth surface.
Black soap is also a natural source of vitamins A & E and iron. This helps to strengthen the skin and hair.
Black soap contains a high amount of glycerin, which absorbs moisture from the air and literally deposits it into the skin, making the skin soft and supple.
For centuries, Ghanaians and Nigerians have used black soap to help relieve acne, oily skin, clear blemishes and various other skin issues. Many swear by it for skin irritations and conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
Women in Africa will use black soap during pregnancy and afterwards to keep them from getting stretch marks and to protect them from dry skin that is often accompanied by pregnancy.
Black soap can also be used as a hair shampoo. The shea butter in the soap softens the hair, while the vitamins give it strength.
Men can use black soap in shaving. The high shea butter content leaves the skin smooth and protected.
African black soap is unique in that it contains no preservatives, color enhancers, or fragrances.
African black soap creates a soft lather without the animal fat additives that are commonly used in soaps made in the US.
1. Protects Against Photo Aging
Antioxidants in black soap protect the skin from free radical damage, which is a cause of premature skin aging, wrinkles and facial lines.

You can Buy your own bar of soap here on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Rise-Shine-Organic-African-Black/dp/B011VIDLUK?ie=UTF8&*Version*=1&*entries*=0
The one thing I can recommend is slicing up the soap before using it. It's a really large bar. So just make thin slices to work with. You should also keep the rest stored away in a large zipped bag.

Dark under eye circles have been killer on me all my life. They will never completely go away and that't the truth of it. You can however help to diminish them with the help of some beauty products. The only way to completely get rid of them might be through laser skin resurfacing which I honestly would not trust near my eye area.
So I got three products to help me with my skin perfection journey. The name of the company is called Mediderm. They have a really large array of products but I decided to go with these three. I requested the Dark circle Eraser, Matte oil free moisturizer and the Instant Face Lift Concentrate.
There was a order I took into account when applying all three products to my skin. I would first wash my face in the shower with a good scrub cleanser. My skin was nice and dry afterwards and then I proceeded to apply the dark circle eraser first. The cream is thick but easy to work with. I found that it absorbed into the skin quickly and didn't leave me feeling greasy. I would say that on all three products it has a neutral cream scent. There was no tingly feeling and no burning. That was a great sign that my skin took to it. I then took the instant face lift and applied it to certain spots around my face. I took it to the smile lines around my mouth. They aren't intense yet but it's always to be proactive in my skincare. I really like the pump top and it was easy to use. I took just a tad to the corners of my eyes as well for the crows feet. After using those two products I took the moisturizer and lightly applied it to my whole face area but avoiding the spots I touched up on with the other two products. I feel like the moisturizer is a great way to keep the nasty oils from building up on my face.
So I took both pictures with absolutely no makeup on. The After shot I took this morning so I may have some leftover eyeliner on and sorry for the glasses mark on my nose. I can see a very nice difference just after 3 weeks of using all three products together. The darkness under my eyes have lightened up a little bit and even on the top of my eyes. I also have a better look to the top of my eyes in concern of the fine lines there. (I have been putting the instant face lift concentrate there). The redness around my nostrils is less harsh. I can't imagine how well these products would work with an older female with more fine lines around. #EyeBagEraser
I can honestly say these products work very well together and I recommend them for anyone wanting to improve their skin.

So I wanted to make a post showing off all the top sexy beards on gaming characters that I could think of. This wasn't such an easy task but I managed to find quite a few. But before I get into that I wanted to show off this cute shirt I got to experience from my friends over at FaceFarmers.Com
This is the shirt that gave me the motivation to make this post. It says, "Beards Are Sexy". This seems to be the male cut version but I know they do have female shirts which are a cuter cut. I think it's called the BabyDoll fit. So make sure to get the right fit for your liking.
That beard on the shirt totally reminded me of Kharazim from Diablo when I saw it. So then I thought, "Hmm, I wonder who else has a mighty beard and looks pretty darn sexy?" So let us commence!
