Lately my skin is having some issues and I feel like I haven't found the right skincare to remedy my situation. When I got invited to attend a BYOB (Blend Your Own Bar) for Naked Bar Soap Co I immediately was thinking how awesome it would be for me to create my own face soap to cater to my own skin needs. Naked Bar Soap Co is located in College Park and hasn't been open that long. When you walk in the beautiful aromas of the different soaps immediately greet you when you walk in. I love the earthy and minimalism decor of the store.
All of the soaps start with a base that they pre make before you get to personalize your own. They go over some additional ingredients that you can add in depending on the effect you would like your skin to have. In my custom blend I added marigold and ground oatmeal. I chose marigold because they said it is good for mature skin and babies and I chose ground oatmeal because its good for sensitive skin. The essential oil I added in my soap was lemongrass because I love the refreshing smell.
With this particular process they teach in the blending class it actually takes 6 weeks for the soap to cure before you can use it. They said it will teach you a lesson in patience. What they didn't know is I'm the most impatient person you will ever meet! Anyway it was fun blending the soap but since I had to wait 6 weeks to use it, I wanted to see if they had any soaps already made that would help me out in the meantime.
Some of the awesome soaps! Aren't they pretty? They each have a description of the ingredients so you know exactly what you're getting
My skin is dehydrated because I don't drink nearly as much water as I should. So I'm very dry in some areas and oily in others. I decided to go with the triple butter soap.
As you can see it has very moisturizing ingredients and I have to say my skin LOVES it. It has help me achieve smoother makeup application as well. I found that my foundation kept settling in my fine lines due to the dryness my previous face wash was causing and even though I would follow up with a moisturizer it still wouldn't help. The best part about this soap is that I can pronounce all of the ingredients so I know that it's something great for my skin.
So its been 6 weeks and I couldn't wait to see what's been cooking this whole time. It smells amazing and I was surprised at how soft it was. It was so soft I had no issues cutting it. It feels super moisturizing and I can't wait to use it!
The best part about this company is that it is owned and run by 3 beautiful ladies and I'm all about girl power! Make sure you check them out on facebook, instagram and twitter and sign up for a BYOB session!
