I’ve Been Carded! Black Soap Facial Treatment
Rewind the clock with this youth-renewing black soap facial treatment. Made with powerful African ingredients, this natural treatment deeply nourishes each pore, leaving you soft, toned, and fresh. 2 oz. DD-104

How I’ve Been Carded Black Soap Treatment Works:

  • African black soap is bursting with antioxidants that protect the skin from free radical damage, which is the main cause of premature skin aging, wrinkles and facial lines.
  • Black soap also helps to even out and fade age spots and discoloration.
  • Black soap is rich in Vitamins A and E. Vitamin A helps promote collagen production which makes your skin softer and more youthful, filling in lines and wrinkles. Vitamin E helps to heal tissue structure and improves the texture and tone of the skin.
  • Shea butter works to soften and smooth skin while firming up skin that has gotten looser with age. It also works to heal scarring!
  • African coffee exfoliates your skin while the antioxidants in coffee help to cleanse and nourish. The caffeine in coffee is also known to tone and tighten the skin while increasing circulation.

Where to buy
From Desired Diva – You get a 2 ounce jar for $15.90 USD.
From Amazon – You get a 2 ounce jar for $15.90 USD.

This comes in a clear glass jar with a gold screw on lid. The label has product information.

Scent and formula
This is a dark brown almost waxy formula. It has black bits of coffee in it. It smells… I don’t know how to describe the smell, it’s a bit waxy/musty/musky/lemony smelling.

African black soap, shea butter, African coffee, fragrance.

I have to talk about the scent first. This smells funky. Like very funky. It smells weird at first then it gets a hint of lemon but still smells weird. I still haven’t gotten use to it. With that said, this cleanses well. It rinses clean and doesn’t leave my face feeling dry. The bits and pieces in it don’t seem to scratch or irritate my face. It leaves my face a little glowy and really clean. Unfortunately this is on the higher pH and is an 8. Too high for me to be comfortable using. The skin has a pH of 5.5. The jar itself is really nice, but the label came off after a couple of weeks of use.

  1. Rinse or soak the sponge in warm water. If it has dried out, allow it to fully absorb water before using

  3. Massage your face with the sponge in a circular motion to gently cleanse your skin.

The sponges come sealed in clear plastic packaging in their soft condition. They come in a a cardboard box that has a printed paper wrap on it. It has directions and product information as well as company information. It also comes with a coupon that has their other products on the other side. The paper wrap has a picture printed on it and is detailed in blacks and greens and white.

Scent and formula
It has no scent wet or dry. When it’s wet it feels like a sponge that is slightly jelly feeling. When it’s dry it feels like paper that had been wet, but it also feels like it could be sharp, if that makes any sense. It’s a weird feeling when it’s dry. The sponges are a dark gray almost black in color and have a white string through them so they can be hung up.

Natural konjac powder made from konjac potato, and it has the addition of bamboo charcoal extract.

I’ve been using this Konjac sponge from La Lune once a day for a few weeks now. It exfoliates well, but it’s gentle. My face is smoother and feels squeaky clean after using it. I don’t know if it’s helped prevent breakouts because I don’t get that many so it’s just hard to tell. My blackheads to appear to look smaller though.
La Lune recommends replacing your konjac sponge every 2-3 months and sanitizing it in the microwave every 2-3 weeks. :) You can sanitize it by microwaving it for one minute. Overall these sponges are great, they exfoliate really well and my face does feel more clean when I use it with my cleanser versus when I use my cleanser alone. The quality is great and the price is wonderful.

La Lune also makes other natural and organic products such as sea weed powder, indian healing clay and more!
