I honestly believe that my skin clears up when I go back to nigeria for vaca. Why? hmmm....lemme see I have natural "organic" food at my service everyday!! fresh fruits, vegetables, eggs name it!! Every thing is fresh and at your service. I love my food spicy, its so spicy that I am forced to drink loads of water which is great for my skin!!! see!!

Anyways besides the healthy diet, there are natural herb filled products that I use without all that chemical cong. SO here are some of my favorite products from home!

Let me know what yours are?

Baby Body Jelly (a.k.a Baby Vaseline)

I don't need to say much about this product. Vaseline is the only product that I know is a do all; its serves as ligloss, makeup remover, hair cream, body cream name it, Vaseline can do it!!! the only special thing about baby vaselines are that unlike regular vaselines, they usually come with fragrances (that smell like baby powder...AHHHHHHHHHH). So this is definately one of my favorite products from Home for many reasons, including nostalgia. (I think all my baby cousins used this)

Delta Medicated Soap and Delta Plus

All I need to see is the gladiator-ish woman and I am happy because I know its DELTA! the medicated soap has been my favorite since secondary school. That time I used it because it was the only soap that made me feel clean after cutting the grass, but now I use it because it really does cleanse your skin, although you have to moisturize right after. I love this soap because it does what it says it does, it cleans and PROTECTS!


I think many of us have tried this soap especially after a random breakout of rash, pimple or enzema. I don't know about you but I was raised to believe that there was nothing this natural soap could not get rid of. Never a huge fan of the smell but I will tell you that with ingredients like shea butter and Aloe Vera, your body will thank you for it. Great for those that are looking to go natural with their products.

There is another NEW form of black soap in the market called AKACHA

I don't have to say much about this product because alot of us were raised with this product being present in our everyday lives. Did your mom pour a bit of dettol in ur warm water before u took a bath? did she dab it into cotton wool and apply it to your wound? did she use it to clean the floor? Basically what am sayin is that there is nothing Dettol could/and cannot do, and thanks to the innovative spirit of the company, it now has its own soap, which is just as amazing as the liquid.
