Elemento Mineral Black Clay Soap

I need to send Rossana from Elemento Mineral a huge apology, I owe her two reviews for the products she sent me when I was pregnant (that was over 2 years ago now!!!). There were too many things happening in my life that made it impossible for me to blog for a looooong time.
The first product is a mini Black Clay SoapThe website says it "has high concentrations of rare minerals that help in cell renewal and improve skin tone. Its delicious fragrance is composed of essential oils of Lavender, Vetiver, Patchouli, Orange and Labdanum. Provides soothing sensation and is anti-stress."
I remember that I was in love with it the moment I opened the package & inhaled the beautiful scent. Totally gorgeous! Bear in mind that at that time I was pregnant, having 24/7 morning sickness & couldn't stand the scent of a lot of thing. When I say it was a beautiful scent, it was really beautiful, it made me feel as if I was in a posh spa retreat in an exotic country. At that time I couldn't find many soap/product scents that didn't make me throw up - I really didn't enjoy being pregnant, it was a dreadful experience!!! Don't even get me started on the labour & birth stories, I literally almost bled to death... but that's another story for another time... 
Back to the topic. I think the essential oils made it nose-friendly. The soap itself felt really soft, nicely foamed without drying my skin, lasted ages. It did work as a little soothing relief during what was one of the most trying times of my life.
Verdict: highly recommended. In fact, I'm googling for stockists as I'm typing this, I want to order some for myself. In need of a calorie-less stress relief at the moment....
