Facial Trivium Set 

The word “Trivium” defines the place where three roads meet. And in this case, that is exactly what has happened.

Savvy Bohème set out on a journey to discover the most effective, yet simplistic way to care for the face without complicated steps, “advanced technology”, or using ingredients with extra-long syllables including the letters “Z” and “X”- we really do like to stick to the basics.

And during our first year of discovery, our customers played a very large role in directing our steps. Over and over, people were telling us how they were using their Savvy Bohème products, and a common thread was occurring in the conversations: combine the African Black Soap lather and Bisous Pour Tous Facial Exfoliant to save a step; Then apply Raven’s Balm to freshly prepared skin.

Everyone kept saying the same thing: They loved how it made their skin look and feel.

So, I started training our new customers to do the same, and have gotten the same reviews: “Love it!”

But, as always, I want you all to understand how and why the combination works so well. So if you are interested, read this:

African Black Soap is an extremely clarifying facial (and body…and hair) cleanser that removes makeup and environmental grime and draws impurities to the surface of the skin.

Bisous Pour Tous Facial Exfoliant uses organic, Fair Trade coffee and sugar as gentle exfoliants to remove dead skin, and contains naturally occurring glycolic acid (an alpha hydroxy acid) to give you a deep exfoliation, making your face offensive to free radicals (aka..zit and wrinkle causers!). Also, highly beneficial oils, kosher vegetable glycerin, and honey are used to remove the oxidized oils holding the dead skin to your face and moisturize the new cellular turnover.

Raven’s Balm moisturizes your freshly prepared palette and gives your face a breathable moisture barrier of protection. It works double-duty as a primer for foundation makeup, too! 

Directions: Lather African Black Soap into hands; Set soap bar/cube aside. Sprinkle Bisous Pour Tous Facial Exfoliant into lather and scrub face in a circular motion. Rinse. Finish with Raven’s Balm on clean, towel-dried skin.

Ingredients: {Ravens Balm} Olive Oil, Candelilla Wax, Evening Primrose Oil, Shea Butter, Arrowroot Powder, Frankincense Oil, Myrrh Resin, Natural Cherry and Almond Oils, Vanilla Oil.  {Bisous Pour Tous Facial Exfoliant} Raw, Organic, Fair Trade Certified Sugar, Olive Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Organic Coconut Oil, Fair Trade Certified Ground Coffee, Sweet Almond Oil, Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Honey, Essential Oils, Vitamin E. {African Black Soap} Raw Shea Butter, Raw Coconut Oil, Raw Palm Kernel Oil, Cocoa Pod Ash, French Green Clay, Essential Oil Blend, Coconut Pod Ash

We purchase our African Black Soap as a base from a coop of women in Ghana. Then we rebatch it with our Savvy flair: more ash, french green clay for detox, and our essential oil blend. We mold the batches into bars and cut them to our specifications.

We are the only brand (to date) that cut our soap slices into smaller cubes- this extends the life of the soap and makes it much easier to store. Each soap bar lasts AT LEAST 4 months if used on the whole body. It lasts MUCH LONGER as a facial soap only.

African Black Soap is the only soap you will ever need again. You and your whole family.

Two-Step Double Cleansing Facial Kit

Quick, quick, slow, slow. 

Quick, quick, slow, slow. 

That is the cadence of the famous Two-Step country dance.

And it's also the cadence of our Two-Step Double Cleansing Facial Kit.

Two dancers, the Real Clean Deep Cleansing Facial Oil and our African Black Soap partner together in this cleansing kit to get your skin back in rhythm for a beautiful glow-show!

The Double Cleansing Method, or The Oil Cleansing Method had been around for generations.

It utilizes the purifying and restorative abilities of botanical oils to cleanse, detox, nourish and moisturize the skin, leaving your complexion "smooth like glass".

The process typically involves using oil to cleanse twice: one time to soften oxidized sebum (oil), allowing cellular turnover to occur; The second wash is intended to draw out residual grime and dead skin, and leave the skin moisturized and clean.

It works, but can leave too much oily residue behind, causing acne and black heads.

It's the reason why so many people say, "I can't use oil on my face- it breaks me out."

You CAN and SHOULD use oil on your face: oil releases oil. There's a better way.

That's where the Two-Step comes in:

We combine the deep cleansing, purifying and detoxifying power of our African Black Soap with the nutritious, vitamin-loaded, high-frequency of of botanical oils to do double the work in half the time and effort. 

Watermelon, Hemp, and Sunflower oils treat your skin to a summer picnic, where the table is set with chamomile, hibiscus and butterfly pea tea flowers!

They work TOGETHER, at the same time, to modulate each other and potentiate your results.

Together, in cadence, they give you the "glass-skin" complexion you're seeking, like a harmonious dance.

Don't get out of rhythm.

Get into Step.

Get The Two-Step.
