Finding Mr. Goodbar


You take a shower, you semi-air dry, then you're left with the decision to either spend copious amounts of time lathering up or going the go- ashy style. I admit, I'm not one to enjoy the post-bath lather; I feel like there are better ways I could spend my time. Deduct Black Girl Magic points, I don't care. This is not to say that I don't oil up with the finest coconut oil Trader Joe's has to offer as much as it is to say that I'm just not very consistent. That was until I tried Abena Boamah's exfoliating bar from her niche (and affordable) new indie beauty line Hanahana Beauty. It's eeeeeverything! It's composed of all the goodies you'd expect to find (Shea butter, cocoa butter, brown sugar) and few that make me raise an eyebrow (clove, tea tree oil, and aduki beans). The mere presence of tea tree oil and Shea butter shows me that it will tone my skin while simultaneously locking in moisture. The brown sugar acts as an exfoliant that will slough away any dead skin cells that are unable to absorb moisture thus, getting me out the shower and out the door faster than you can say "Hanahana Beauty" 3 times!
