Here’s the scoop. The scrub is the cream version of Black Magic with bamboo powder added. Bamboo powder, you say? Yes! Bamboo stems are rich in silica, and this silica makes a great exfoliating powder. I like it because it’s definitely scrubby but it isn’t as rough as other scrubs, like those that use walnut shell powder, for example.
The cream soap contains all the stuff that makes Black Magic, well, magic. That would be the essential oil blend including tea tree, grapefruit, and peppermint, French green clay, activated charcoal, and calendula. It’s a great blend for blemish-prone skin. The scrub part provides surface exfoliation to help keep your skin clear.
I bought the 2 oz. jar to start off with, and it’ll probably last for a while – a little goes a long way. I will likely buy the bigger jar next time, just because I love it so much and it’s worth it. I’ve noticed my skin is a lot smoother. I started using it in the midst of an epic hormonal related acne-fest and it cleared up very quickly and with minimal scarring. TWO ENTHUSIASTIC THUMBS UP!!
