Cos you are a bloody marvel.
I decided to get some to see if it helped 13 year old DS spots.
I tried it as well and after only 3 days my skin looks amazing. It seems much tighter and younger looking.
I am a total convert. Not too expensive either.

Oh and DSs spots look dryer as well.

Ooh, where do you buy that? Sound amazing.

Is this rhasoul? The stuff made from olive oil or something? <vague> If so, it's amazing. If you do a really thorough body scrub before using it you will end up with the most amazing skin.

Would it be good for sensitive skin, do you think?

3littlefrogs Sun 02-Mar-14 17:30:21

Oooh - could you give more info please?

AlpacaYourThings Sun 02-Mar-14 17:31:15

Could you link it, please? smile

Sammie101 Sun 02-Mar-14 17:32:56

Link please smile

Can't do links on phone but its from Amazon. Yes it is ok for sensitive skin. It's made from all natural ingredients. Smells a bit strange but that's because there's no perfume in it. There's no smell after using it. Apparently it's great for hair as well.

Is that it LadyPenny? (Not sure if you can see the link on your phone but thought I would try)

I just had a look. How do you tell which is the real deal? The Akamuti one is fair trade.

tulipsaredelicious Sun 02-Mar-14 18:03:17

Look at the negative review on that link. That version includes palm oil - very bad from an ecological point of view.

tulipsaredelicious Sun 02-Mar-14 18:12:32

Juat noticed the Akamuti one says it's fairtrade but doesn't have the fairtrade stamp. I'm sceptical.

This is the one that was recommended recently in this thread

AlpacaYourThings Sun 02-Mar-14 18:17:00

Oh, I wouldn't use anything with Palm oil in it.

LadyPenny Sun 02-Mar-14 18:18:18

The one I got is 90 gms for &2.99 seller is Naissance. I bought 3 bars and the postage was only a £1.00.

I didn't know palm oil was bad I'm just going to check mine.

LadyPenny Sun 02-Mar-14 18:20:56

Mine does have palm oil, bugger. Why is it bad?. I think my ethics may be seriously tested.

LadyPenny Sun 02-Mar-14 18:22:03

Yes stepaway that's the one.

AlpacaYourThings Sun 02-Mar-14 18:32:38

Have a look at this on Palm Oil.

anchovies Sun 02-Mar-14 20:14:46

Akoma sell one that is organic/fairtrade and no palm oil. Haven't tried it though.

tulipsaredelicious Tue 04-Mar-14 10:58:13

I'll check out the akoma one, anchovies. Thanks. Sounds fab.

Ok so I bought it but am scared to use on my face, I break a bit off and use in the shower. Is it ok on faces?

A lot of palm oil is gathered in Indonesia, in the forests where orang-outangs dwell (or rather, increasingly don't dwell as their population is decimated by the world's demand for palm oil in cosmetics and food)

Ohwhatfuckeryisthis Wed 05-Mar-14 15:19:46

I've just ordered some with added oats and aloe for my ds acne. read reviews that said the pure stuff can be quite harsh, but aloe vera is good to make it mlder.
