A little Black Magic never hurts! (B&B Review)

I love makeup but I love bath/body products just as much! I'm always on the lookout for good soaps/whips/lotions etc. You get the picture. I will admit I am very picky when it comes to bath and body products. While I was looking for something new, a few of my fellow glitter junkies were gushing about a product called "Black Magic". My first reaction was, huh? Then. they went on to say that it was a great soap product and stuff. So, I decided to check out the shop this product came from and was very surprised.

The basics: First of all, I love the name "One Hand Washes The Other" (very unique). The shop can be found on etsy HERE and on Artfire HERE. When I looked on the etsy site, Black Magic was sold out but then I saw that she also has an artfire shop, which is where I ordered from. OHWTO is described as "Vegan-friendly Soaps and Skincare" and is owned by Becca H. She is a really sweet person with excellent customer service. I had convo'ed her on etsy and she promptly responded. She also has a blog that you can follow:

What I ordered: Since I was hearing all this talk of how great the Black Magic Soap was, I of course got that in the bar form AND in the bottle creme version. With my order, I picked up a sample of the Black Magic Soap (which someone lucky will receive!). I placed my order on Jan 21st (in the late afternoon) and received it on Jan 31st. On OHWTO, the turnaround time is clearly stated as being: 10-14 business days. So I was very happy with the shipping time.

Black Magic Solid Soap: $5.25 for a huge bar. An intense soap experience BIG BAR tea tree charcoal soap green clay peppermint lemongrass grapefruit rosemary

Black Magic Creme: $6.00 for a 2 oz bottle. A unique blend of traditional essential oils and botanical ingredients combined with modern cleansing technology, this is a facial cleanser unlike anything you've ever seen.

The goods:

Along with my order, I received an invoice with a thank you, cute stickers that my son enjoyed and two samples of solid perfume in Barista and Constance. My items were individually packed in a box, with purple tissue paper. Everything was professionally done. The items were labeled with ingredients and instructions.

I personally loved how refreshing and clean my face felt after using this! I have also noticed a decrease in redness and blemishes since using Black Magic. :)

Will I order again? You bet! I love this stuff. The soap is amazing and I love the customer service. Have you used this product or anything else from OHWTO? How was your experience?
