African Black Soap + Mascaras and a Blush

Here is my recent mini haul for the week. I'm sort of in a mascara phase right now, after hoarding blushes last year and I have purchased 2 tubes of mascaras - 1 Maybelline Lash Stylist in Soft Black and the other one is Rimmel Extra Super Lash in Black Black. Both have good reviews at MUA but I'll just see for myself if good reviews are worth adding for both. The other one is another small blush compact from Rimmel. I really liked Rimmel Apricot and the only other shade available on eBay is Sienna so I bought one. I also bought one gluta and obagi-infused soap which I have tried before and works really well and I forgot to include it when I took the photo below. And the weird looking thing is the African Black Soap.

I've read a lot of good reviews on the African Black Soap so I decided to check out my go-to shopping website - eBay. :P I saw a few listings for the African Black Soap and I purchased one that only has 50g for trial. Hopefully, if it works well for me, I will purchase more of it and be my HG facial soap/cleanser. So far so good.

See how it looks like? It sort of reminds me of a weird-looking chocolate chip cookie and it is soft. I only need to pinch just a tiny portion of it which is enough for my entire neck and face. It lathers easily too. I am really excited to see the results of this soap and see if this will indeed deliver as my skin's acting up again. I will make a comprehensive review on this soap in a few weeks' time.

Oh, there will be one more mascara added to my mascara purchases. Ooops, make that 2 as I just purchased one from a fellow girltalker. I am itching to try the Imju Fiberwig Mascara but it can probably wait. I have opened 2 mascaras so once I receive my Maybelline Colossal, I may need to have my mom hide it where I can't find it in 3 months. I need to ditch my Maybelline Hypercurl mascara by the end of the month. :( Then I have to throw away the 2 other tubes by mid-April which means that that's the only time I can open my Colossal and the best part is I can finally purchase a fiberwig mascara. Have I mentioned that I am in a mascara phase right now? :P

Anyway, I am excited for the loots I am to receive by next week. See yah! :P


  1. hi pammy! i'm looking for a new mascara to use.. please let me know your recommendations.. thanks!

  2. Hi Laarni! The Rimmel one looks really promising. I tried it when I got home. And it's only PHP148! ;)

  3. Ooh I highly recommend fiberwig mascaras if you have sparse lashes ^.^ I'm using majolica majorca... Love it! ^.^

  4. Chelle, I do not have sparse and short lashes. They kind of have this curl naman. Will fiberwig prove too much for me kaya? Yikes! :P

  5. hi pammy :) im looking forward on the african soap review :) this is Super Nix of GT (who bought your elf blush :p) by the way! cheers!

  6. Hi Nix. I know you'll like the ELF blush. :P I am looking forward to seeing the results of the African black soap. :)

  7. wow mascara phase hehe. i'll stay tuned sa mga mascara purchases and reviews mo :p

    african black soap ang gamit ko ngayon sis pero its from v&m. sabi ni boyfie nag lighten daw yung scars ko. hihi pero its not my HG hehe :p

  8. Cha, that's keeping my hopes up with the African Black Soap. :P

  9. Hmmm... I don't know about Imju but MM is okay lang naman I think, it's not too volumizing and if you can control the fibers (which are not too long sa MM) it's gonna be okay naman I think ^.^

  10. P158 for a decent mascara, wow!

    i have 2 new mascaras too, but i'm resisting from using 'em already as i still have 2 or 3 open ones. ugh, i hate that mascaras expire easily!

  11. I look forward to seeing your review on the soap! I'm so interested to know how it works for you! :)

  12. Chelle, MM also caught my eye. Might try that before the expensive imju fiberwig. I saw one site selling the MM lash expander for only PHP650. :P

    Jing, I've used it thrice pa lang and so far so good. My mom even told me that my face looks lighter. :)

    Mia, I hate that too. If only we can extend it for just one month. :P One reason why I don't want to splurge on mascaras. So I research on the cheaper ones but delivers really well. :)

    Dana, me too. I am eager to see its results on me. Hopefully though, it's on the positive side. :)

  13. the soap looks scary at first glance, but most scary looking soaps works well :D hehehe

  14. Nikki, you have a good point there. I do hope it works. :P

    So far, I see peeling on my face and my cheeks, chin and nose are kinda red but not to the point that will make me freak out and run to mommy. :P

  15. Ohh, I love Rimmel London! It's cheap but the quality is actually good.

  16. Ohh, I love Rimmel London! It's cheap but the quality is actually good.
