Dudu Oshun. Does It Tone?

I recently started using this soap, the tropics that has lime, honey and shea butter in it and i noticed that my face is getting lighter than it was

initially. Is it supposed to tone the face since it said to be local with no harmful bleaching agents included?

@whiteroses

It works for some, not for others. A lot of nairalanders will agree with you. try the black packaged ones, [i]they [/i]might work.

It's sold on ebay/amazon

^ original has a red line when it's opened its their trademark any fakes that lines it red will get in trouble.

at poster yes it tones, i was a fair person i have gone dark through the years, cause of sun and stuff but i started dudu osun and i went back to my original colour which i was in high school but its almost a year now after i went back to my normal color, it stays the same i thought its gonna continue toning but it dinnt so its sort of confusing

Dudu oshun exfoliates ur skin and makes it glow, i make black soap for myself and the ingredients i put is the black soap itself mixed with aloe vera, sulphur, honey, lime and oshun (cam wood). The original oshun which is dark red in colour and hard to find anyway really tones the body, but in a natural way. It does not have any side effect at all. Also lime tones the body. So it preferable buying blacksoap or making yours instead of buying toilet soap. Some people react to some of the ingredients in the blacksoap, so if you are making your own black soap, you may not put the ingredient that makes you react.

@ all

Thanks for your contributions. will stick to it then cos i kind of really like the soap.

@ steaming

it doesnt dry my skin. on the contrary after use, my skin feels silky and smooth. you can try that and see instead of the normal black soap.

maybe it is exfoliating your skin ,,hence the looking lighter effect , I dont believe this is harmful

Dudu Osun doesn't tone.

That is what i use,it only maintain your complexion whether you are fair or dark

it all depends on the type of skin you have. it toned me a bit when i was using it but when my friend decided to use it, her skin stayed the same.

I think it does, but the ingredients are supposed to be natural.

locally made black soap is very helpful in maintaining the skin, so dudu osun shouldnt be any different.
