Review: Black Paint Soap

You guys might already know that I have a slight fascination with the Japanese Culture. It's not as bad as some bloggers that I've seen on the inter webs but when it comes to food (take for example the clay pot cooking) art (like the woodblock printing I learned about) and especially beauty products, I can't get enough. So when the people at Black Paint offered to send me their Black Paint Soap kit I immediately said yes. 

Alright so included in the kit is the soap (duh!) as well as a black sponge. They both come in mostly grey packaging cardboard with a rose on them. The sponge is dried and before use should be soaked in warm water for a few minutes, pressing out the water before using it. To use the soap immerse it in roughly 100F water for a minute, at this time you'll see the surface of the soap is melted. Apply this melted soap to the face (try to use all surfaces so the soap wears evenly) massaging in circular motions. rise off first with water, and then get the excess off with the black sponge.

Although I'm always wary of using dark colored products for fear of pigmentation leftovers I decided to go for this black soap. It is very gentle on the skin, and I didn't have any issues with it drying out my face (do make sure to rinse it all off though) and even after just a few uses I've noticed my blackheads disappearing and my face feeling less oily and gross throughout the day. I do wish though that the steps to use it weren't so intensive, mostly because I'm quite lazy.

  1. Interesting! I live in the Little Tokyo district of downtown LA and I have seen some similar products. Does it have a scent?

  2. Heheh, I am lazy with following too many steps! this sounds amazing!
