I've never had any purging from it. But then, all African black soap is not the same.
I'm using the one from Coasta Scents. I had moderate acne, but it purged and now I look like I have severe acne. But it's slowly going away.. I hope it does
My sister said the reason why I'm purging is because I'm using the MAC liquid foundations which is comodogenic. She's been using it African Black Soap for over a year and her skin is gorgeous! And she uses mineral makeup instead of MAC. She used to have acne too but now her skin is absolutely clear.. so jealous of her!
I've never used the one from Coastal Scents. I believe theirs contains lime (some say it burns). I use the one from Agbangakarite and it has no lime. Is your sister using the same brand of black soap as you? Perhaps you should stop using the black soap if your skin doesn't agree with it. Then again, if your skin is getting better and you are still using it, perhaps it is your make up.
My sister and I use the same brand of black soap from Coastal Scents. It's been 10 days now and my acne is starting to clear up. It's drying out my pimples and making my skin a lot smoother. I'm happy now so I hope it clears up my skin and keeps it that way!
As for the makeup, she said that MAC clogs up the pores. And the reason why I was purging was because the soap was pushing out all the dirt from my make-up. I'm still using MAC cause I have no other make-up and I really don't want to go out with all my acne showing :/ so maybe that's why it's taking so long for my skin to fully clear up. I'll try to purchase mineral makeup soon and see the difference.
I'm so glad I'm sharing this with you guys! I felt so alone before but now I'm happy that someone is somewhat actually listening to me. I'll keep you guys updated just incase some people are wondering if the black soap is actually working or not. Thanks everyone! <3
