I was thrilled to be recently introduced to Cleopatra's Choice, an online boutique that features unique skincare products from around the world. Cleopatra's Choice sent me some of their most-wanted products, African Black Soap, Adovia Dead Sea Hand Cream, and Calming Essential Oil.
The African Black Soap is a rich, natural alternative to traditional beauty soaps. I use this soap on my face and body, and afterwards, my skin, which has a tendency to be dry, feels fresh and moisturized. Hand pressed by women in a small village in Ghana, this soap is fair trade and made with entirely organic products, including 100% pure and organic Shea butter. I definitely feel that this soap improved my skin's appearance, and though I don't suffer from acne, eczema or psoriasis, many believe that African Black Soap contains healing elements.

My favorite product by far is the Calming Essential Oil blend, which contains a lovely mixture of lavender, rose, cedarwood, marjoram and frankincense essential oils. Since I prefer wearing essential oils instead of perfumes (I get a headache from synthetic scents), this was a special treat for me. It's a fragrance that radiates calm and peace, with a fresh and natural blend of essential oils. Cleopatra's Choice also offers a number of other essential oils and blends, and the prices are much lower than Whole Foods, where I usually purchase my essential oils and other natural products.
