I call this soap blush because this is a naked soap. This is my first intentional unscented soap. Noticed how I stressed the word intentional. I've made a few batches that were supposed to be scented, but they faded during the curing process. This one has absolutely ZERO fragrance in it-a first for me. This soap was inspired by Nuria at Jabon Artesanal. I can't stress how much I love this chica:) Every time I read one of her posts, it inspires me to step my game up another notch. Nuria made a soap called Pink Clay Soap. I actually used the pink clay that I won in her giveaway back in June, but I never knew what to do with it until now.
Pink clay is great for normal and or sensitive skins because it does not draw oils from the skin. This would make the perfect "wash the day away" facial soap, and that's how I plan to personally use it. I wear bulletproof makeup during the week because my face is an oil slick, and this soap will be just the ticket to "prep" my skin for my normal skincare regime. Of course it can also be used as an allover body cleanser. I love how "pure" this soap smells. You don't know how I was just dying to put some kind of fragrance in this batch. Can't wait til this one's ready....
