Moroccanoil Soap

If youve read this blog for any length of time, Im sure youve gotten your laughs off my Moroccan bath experience. As crazy as that was for me, i believe I will be going to get one again, though at a much better establishment!
Today, I ran across this product

 And while waiting in line for a price, an Arabic lady gave it the once over, looked inside, and nodded her head in approval of what was inside. After seeing it was only 9.50 dhm, I got another. Once I try it, I will certainly give a review! In the meantime, here is information about the product-or products like this:

Moroccan Black Soap and How To Use It

The black soap is part of the traditional hammam ritual. It is the first treatment in oriental public bath. With a texture of butter, this natural vegetable paste based with black olives is rich in vitamin E.
It is obtained from a mixture of oil and crushed olives, soaked in salt and potash. In the nineteenth century it was used as a product of Dermatology and later became a real beauty tool for the body suitable for every type of skin.
It prepares the skin for exfoliation. The skin will be softer and ready for a scrub. Combined with the action of the Kessa glove will remove impurities and dead skin.

Thanks to it exfoliating and moisturizing, it softens and nourishes the skin. It does not foam but becomes creamy when you add water.

Argan Oil Tree’s exclusive soap is delicately scented with eucalyptus essential oil. Eucalyptus helps relax the body and adds to the soap some antiseptic, antibacterial and Anti-inflammatory properties.
How to use Black Soap ?
After 15 minutes in your hot bath, hot shower, steam room or hammam, using only plain water, apply soap on a warm and wet body. Avoid the face and eyes. Leave on for up to 10 minutes then rinse with warm water. Your skin is now softer and easier to exfoliate, get ready for a gommage with the Kessa glove.

Tip: Try the gommage with a dry Kessa glove on warm damp skin (not wet skin). Use circle motion then wash off all dead skin. Dry and moisturize with Argan oil or your body lotion.

A weekly exfoliation is recommended.

Do not apply soap on damaged skin and avoid area around eyes and face.
Ingredients of Moroccan Black Soap

Water, olive oil, Eucalyptus Globulus essential oil, potassium hydroxide.
Properties and benefits of Moroccan Black soap:
Removes dead skin (the rough and dry outer surface). Deep cleans the skin by removing toxins and dead skin cells, making our skin softer. The exfoliation increases the blood and lymph circulation. With its anti-microbial proprieties Moroccan black soap is rich in vitamin E. Highly advised to relieve itchy back due to an excess of dead skin and clogged pores. Ideal to reduce in-growing hair.
After the gommage your skin is ready to absorb better your next skin care treatment - mask, moisturizing or tanning.

The authentic second oriental treatment after the soap scrub is the Rhassoul clay mask and then for finishing, Moroccan women moisturize their body with Argan oil.

Being here for so long makes me feel like I should be speaking more Arabic. Some people here will ask you why you don't know more.I even had a rude guy tell me how he speaks English and that I should be speaking Arabic. Im sure it didn't cross his mind that he has many opportunities to practice using English because that is what is used everywhere. In regards to Arabic, not only is it not often used in public places but there are different dialects so words I learn at school may have no meaning if you are not Emirati.  Anyway, I started my list with about 70 and have and will add to it as words cross my mind.Im sure when school starts again Ill remember some more!

Brace yourself.

It's coming.

Piles of things with nowhere to go and an impending deadline. You have a million things to do so you begin the arduous task of figuring out what to keep and what to let go of. In the beginning, it seems easy enough. Maybe you don't have lots of things. In which case, the above picture will never be you. In most cases, however, just get your tissue ready. Or your bottle of libation. Whichever suits your fancy.

Let me start with the process of letting things go. Because I am so smart, I began paring down months ago. It felt good and I was so proud of myself for being on top of things. After that, I began to walk around my house and think about what I would post things for when the time came. I decided I didn't want the hassle of bargaining so I would post things for a ridiculous price. Satisfied that I had time, I continued on with daily life. Fast forward some months and we get the paper work. It is so confusing that I set it aside and figured …
