Nubian Heritage Lemongrass and Tea Tree Soap with Orange Peel

Just when I thought I was done with Nubian Heritage I go in the beauty supply and there were two more flavors I hadn't tried. So I got this one and another one for $2.50.

It's Claims:
For generations, Lemongrass, with its' strong and sweet lemony aroma, has been used in purification rituals, as well as, to promote psychic awareness. Steam-distilled lemongrass has a strong history of medicinal use in the West Indies, Africa and South America. Tea Tree oil's remarkable anti-bacterial and healing properties, long used to alleviate skin problems, are a perfect complement to the powerful anti-inflammatory properties of Lemongrass. Nubian Heritage uses Madagascan Lemongrass oil and Aboriginal Tea Tree oil in a moisturizing Shea Butter Soap to help clear oily and troubled skin. This refreshingly deodorant soap, with its' mild anti-septic and rich moisturizing properties, treats and tones skin. In addition to their topical healing properties, these exotic essential oils are also revered for their outstanding aromatherapy values.

It's kinda agreenish color and you can see little pieces of orange peel. They don't really do much in the way of exfoliation. It smells very lemongrassy. And like tea. And I'm not a fan. The scent does nothing for me. It cleans pretty well but my skin ends up getting dryer as the day goes on. Not a good look. Also I tried it on my face and while it took all the oil away my skin still had mini bumps that I could feel. Also Not good.

So I didn't like the soap but I do like the ingredients.

Lemongrass oil, tea tree oil, orange peel, shea butter, cocoa butter, vegetable glycerin, vitamin E, soaps of coconut & palm.

If only it did more for me. I don't recommend it at all.
