Dudu Oshun. Does It Tone? by ayeesha: 12:46pm On May 13, 2009
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?
Re: Dudu Oshun. Does It Tone? by tpiah: 4:10pm On May 14, 2009
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.

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.

Dudu Osun doesn't tone.
That is what i use,it only maintain your complexion whether you are fair or dark
Re: Dudu Oshun. Does It Tone? by steaming(f): 3:32pm On May 22, 2009
pls does it not dry the skin? I tried using the regular black soap and it started wrinkling my skin a lil.

is dudu oshun any different from the regular black soap?
Re: Dudu Oshun. Does It Tone? by Supercharg: 3:42pm On May 22, 2009
maybe it is exfoliating your skin ,,hence the looking lighter effect , I dont believe this is harmful
Re: Dudu Oshun. Does It Tone? by ayeesha: 4:46pm On May 22, 2009
@ 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.

I use Dudu osun for my body only. It works but cos i am dark skinned and dont want to be too fair i use face wash.
Re: Dudu Oshun. Does It Tone? by yhemmmy(f): 8:08pm On Jul 09, 2010
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.

Re: Dudu Oshun. Does It Tone? by Sissy3(f): 2:21am On Jul 11, 2010
Why?

did it breakout your skin?
Re: Dudu Oshun. Does It Tone? by LadyDee1(f): 8:48pm On Jul 13, 2010
DuDu Osun is kiss kiss kiss kiss

I love IT!! Its amazing for the skin, a very good exfoliator, removes dead skin cells so your skin glows!!
Im kinda fair in general but this soap does not tone it just thoroughly cleanses,

The west are scouring sites for the original Black soap (dudu osun is the nigerian version and there is a ghanian version which is for sensitive skin).
There are so many fakes out on the market, embarassed
Re: Dudu Oshun. Does It Tone? by whiteroses(f): 8:47pm On Jul 14, 2010
^ 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

Hun, i dont think its toning you, i think it exfoliated all the dead cells away, hence, bringing up all the renewed natural skin colour.
When you stay in the sun too much without proper skin protection (suncream) you will get a tan/burn,
To get rid of your suntan just exfoliate lots and protect your skin, before you know it you have gone back to your normal skin tone,
That why i said dudu osun doen't tone otherwise, like you said it would have lightened you more than your original colour, wink

It worked . . . been using it for a few months. Toned my skin, heck 95% of the marks on my body are gone. shocked kiss I think it speeds up the process of skin renewal.
And it softens my flesh. . . . loff it. I just hate the smell lipsrsealed

Yea, for my night shower. I have a lil separate face sponge.


@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
Re: Dudu Oshun. Does It Tone? by whiteroses(f): 3:02pm On Jul 21, 2010
^tanks i use the yellow packaged ones its fine so far, but dont think i'd like to try that if it will tone my skin tho cos i'm a bit light naturally def dont wanna go lighter
