After the Rain..

My daughter suffers with Cystic Acne on her back and wanted a nice gentle soap so I bought a sample of After the Rain when I saw it was good for acne prone skin. She is really enjoying using it and has asked me for a full sized bar she said since she's been using it her acne feels less painful and hasn't dried her skin up. Thankyou Chalk Valley for helping my daughters skin for the better!!

Amazing smelling soap

It has a very nice, unisex scent. I had to hide it from my husband!
