It has been quite a while, lovelies!

While I don't want to go into much detail, I will say that my life has been a bit of a train wreck lately. Between false accusations being thrown at me, picking up an extra day at work so I am there six days a week instead of just five, and trying to get my health back in order I've been a busy bee!

A few days ago I posted a little blip about sulfur soap.

After over a week of using it, my skin has changed dramatically in the way it looks and feels. I still have minor breakouts, due to a medication I'm taking, but nothing compared to what I was experiencing before. My skin isn't as oily as it used to be, either.

I have been looking at various soaps online, thinking that I wouldn't be able to find them locally. To my surprise, I found this bar at Walmart in the strangest place. Rather than in the section with the facial cleansers, it was back in the hair care products area on an oddly placed end-cap that features products that are targeted toward our Mexican population.

If memory serves, I paid $2.97 for this little miracle bar of soap.

Out of all of the things I've tried, the instructions for this were the strangest. Wet your face with warm water, work up a good amount of suds with the soap, and then apply to your face. Leave it there for 10 minutes (your skin will feel odd) and then rinse with cold water. Thanks to the lanolin, you really don't need a moisturizer, but I always use one as I'm a firm believer in the power of moisturizers.

They say your skin should clear in between 1-8 weeks, depending on the severity of your case of acne, but mine cleared in about four days.

Word to the wise: do not use this in the shower. I tried, and it ended up making my face burn. I have a feeling it was the heat from the shower reacting to the soap as I let it sit on my face.

After years of searching for the perfect product for my skin, I think I've found it <3
