I bought this set of soaps mid october from here and would like to review a bit on what miracles they work and what poblems may arise. They arrived like this on october 7th:
With a lot of little gifts I got: Soap with healing earth, soap with damascian rose, hair soap and the original soap with 85% olive oil and 15% bayleaf oil. This soaps are said to clear the skin, help with itching skalp and dandruff and generally to be "the beauty secret of syrian women since centuries". Let's see...
I tried them for a month to be really sure if the results are stable. And what can I say? It works wonders for the skin! I used the original soap every evening to clean my face (it also removes any make up) and put on some hydrating cream. While I experienced some breakouts in the first two days, afterwards my skin felt like a baby's butt! And it still feels like it... I will keep the skin treatment for sure, but I think it will take me at least 8 month to finish the first bar of soap I bought.
The hair shampoo does it's job pretty well. While my hair feels strange right after rinsing - somehow oily and slick when still wet?! - it dries faster and feels good when dry. The only minor issue I have is that I prefer liquid shampoo to dry ones. So I started grating the soap and mixing it with water in a bottle. Works much better than shampoo bars for me, as I always seem to forget/not reach some parts of my head especially on the back of my head.
So all in all, I can just recommend to try this Aleppo soap. It's cheap and for me it works fine!
