How to use the cleansing soap bar
The bar can be used on your face and/or your entire body. The oils will deeply nourish your skin, leaving it soft and silky.
Depending on the size of your mold, you may have to cut the bar into smaller pieces with a knife.
1. Warm the bar in your hands so that it melts slightly.
2. Massage your skin and/or face to distribute the foam and allow it to penetrate your skin.
3. Wait a few moments and rinse with warm water.
4. Pat dry with a towel. A moisturizing film will be left on your skin. In a few minutes, the skin will absorb the oils and butters, which will deeply nourish your skin.
