Usually, I am very reluctant to use bar soap. I've heard all the claims, "Won't dry your skin out!" or "Super moisturizing!" and so on. For me, they've always dried my skin out terribly. But when I saw this soap available for review, and read about it, I decided to give it a try.
Before trying it, I was expecting the same result as every other bar soap I've ever tried. I was expecting my skin to feel tight, itchy, and dry. But I was pleasantly surprised. Maybe it's all the minerals in the soap, maybe it's the Dead Sea salts that are exfoliating my skin, but it felt amazing!
There is something familiar about the scent that I just can't put my finger on. I recognize the smell, I am sure that it's the same scent as soap that I have used as a child, but I'm not exactly sure. It's not unpleasant, however.
Excuse the horrible picture of myself. This is before using the soap. My skin is really dry, and oftentimes, it's flaky and peeling. Even with lotion, it's constantly dry.
The first thing I noticed about Adovia Dead Sea Salt moisturizing soap is that it doesn't create a lot of lather. As much as I appreciate not having excessive bubbles, it was kind of hard to think of it cleaning my face without the lather I'm used to. The second thing I noticed was that, while using my hands to wash my face, it felt like my skin was tightening and drying out. My hands kind of "skipped" over my skin, indicating that it was taking grease and oils off of my face. But I couldn't help but think it was overly cleaning- removing ALL moisturization from my skin. The last thing I noticed was that my face felt lighter, more airy, if that makes sense.
|Not a lot of lather. Made me think it wouldn't clean my face as well as it claimed to.|
When I rinsed it off, again my hands "skipped" over my skin. I started to think that maybe I made a mistake by giving this soap a try. I didn't have high hopes, despite really wanting to believe that it would feel good. However, once I fully rinsed it off, and pat dried my face using a wash cloth, I noticed immediately that my skin felt different. It felt lighter. Really clean. My skin looked amazing, as well! Nice and clear, smooth, no rough, dry patches, no flaking skin. Within 5 minutes, the feeling of tightness went away, and it was super soft! I did not use any other lotions or moisturizers after using this soap.
