The famous Dudu Osun black soap is set to get a sister product and it comes with a lot of promises and it delivers...
This totally new (yet to be released to the market) product is great for oily skin and perfect for the Nigerian weather. It's that moisturizer you feel will work after using it for the very first time even if its peanut size (or is it just me) and the fact that it's indigenous is a huge plus for me.
I would easily call the lotion a sister to the raved black soap; Dudu Osun coming from the same 'Tropical Naturals' brand and because over time the black soap (Dudu Osun) has become a skincare favourite, I was excited to try the new moisturizer.
Presented in a light pink half hexagon inspired top with the opening cap at the tail, the container comes with the opening upside down- the tip left down is where the product comes out from- and described as Dudu-Osun Moisturizing Lotion Skin Smoothening & Softening with Shea Butter and Camwood.
A first use of the lotion delivers on moisturizing lotion i.e it's not greasy at all, the body absorbs the product seamless and it leaves a non-comedogenic (not clogging pores) feeling so it's light and absorbent leaving the area visibly moisturized but not dry or greasy/messy in any way.
It's also specially formulated with the famous Shea Butter and Camwood duo known for antibacterial/healing while helping keep skin radiant and supple and after a few weeks of using it, I have experienced all of that.
I'm a bit unsure about how the bottle is presented, I like the idea of a playful presentation but leaving the head as 'the stand' leaves product concentrated at the area and most times by the time the cap is lifted to get out product, you end up with much more than you want which isn't exciting.
Occasionally, I find myself moisturizing my hands especially over the course of the day (I hate the feeling of dry fingers!) but in all, it's an exciting product and one excellent for oily skin especially in this neck of the woods where humidity reigns supreme.
-Shea Butter and Camwood - keeping skin smooth and soft without chemicals
-Works perfect for oily skin without leaving no oily residue and no greasy feeling
-Non-comedogenic - It leaves the skin totally breathable and doesn't block pores
-Super light and absorbent
-Slightly perfumed to tickle the senses - it's just enough and not overwhelming (though some people might think otherwise)
-Perfect for Nigerian weather and oily skin
-The unconventional bottle is a NO for me as it's not that handy and wastes product most times apart from that it's a great moisturizer.
The lotion is set to be rolled out soon but when it hits the market, it's definitely one to cop especially if you have oily skin and love your lotion light and super absorbent but intensely nourishing!
