Shea Terra Organics

Birchbox Breakdown

This all-natural face wash and mask combines real African black soap— prized by women around the world for its abilities to battle blemishes and the signs of skin aging—with rejuvenating rose hips oil to leave your face clean and refreshed. Plus, its 100% natural, fragrance-free formula makes it gentle enough for those with sensitive skin.

How it Works

Authentic African black soap—made from the ashes of plantain and cocoa pods—digs into pores for a deep clean, while South African rose hips oil regenerates cells. Add skin-smoothing licorice root, antioxidant-rich organic rooibos tea, and skin-firming kigellia Africana, and you've got a powerhouse product that gets rid of dead skin, evens skin tone, and fights acne.

How to Use

Pump out a dime-sized amount of liquid onto fingers and apply to face. Allow product to sit for five minutes, then rinse with water. Reapply, and gently lather into skin. Rinse again, this time using the palms of your hands to work away dead skin. Gently pat face with towel to dry.

Deionized water, Yoruban black soap (cocoa pod ash, plaintain peel ash, palm kernels, camwood bark), certified organic shea butter, certified organic coconut oil, potassium hydroxide (electrocuted salts- what makes oil into soap), certified organic rose hips oil, rose hips fruit, aloe ferox, rooibos tea, kigellia africana, certified organic marshmallow root, licorice root.

Great for twice weekly use
Sampled

This cleanser does a great job. I wouldn't recommend it for daily use, but maybe once or twice a week.
I use it in the shower (easier to rinse off ) and follow the directions - you really do need to leave it on for approx. 5 minutes for it to really work.

I really like this product. I like that it dries quickly on your face and is easy to wash off. My face didn't tingle and it felt really smooth!

its ok...nothing special
Sampled

I received this item as a sample. I felt as though it left my skin feeling soft and clean without residue, but I did not see any real changes over all. There was plenty of product in the sample bottle for more than 6-7 uses, so I felt that I had the chance to give this soap a fair review.
It has an unusual odor, but that is something I can over look.

I'm in love
Purchased

This is the best cleanser I've ever used. My skin feels so soft and clean after I use it! Other reviews have complained about the smell, I honestly don't see how they thought it was horrible. It's not full of scents and perfumes, I'd rather have all natural ingredients with an earthy smell. I'm obviously addicted and so happy I found something that helps control occasional adult acne, aging, as well as an overall perfect cleanser.

Best Stuff Ever...
SampledPurchased

I received this sample a while back and didn't use it until a few weeks ago. The results blew me away. I have never found a product that I immediately loved and this definitely qualifies.

I don't wear makeup at all so anything I do to my skin/face is immediately noticeable.I actually had someone comment that my skin looked great.

I ordered a bottle immediately and I won't use anything else. Great product!

Pleasantly Surprised!

I usually tend to use gentle and mild face soaps due to my sensitive skin. This product was great as it wasn't harsh on my skin. I love using it in the morning since the tingles help wake me up and it feels very refreshing.

My new MUST HAVE
Sampled

There aren't many cleansers that really blow me away. I use a variety of brands since I'm not really loyal to just one...until now! I am almost out of my deluxe sample and I had to hurry on to Birchbox to order more! It leaves my skin feeling velvety soft...and rinses away so beautifully. This will be a permanent in my nightly routine from now on!

Best stuff out there!

I received this as a sample and have been using it as recommended ever since. I love that you rub it into your skin and then let it sit for 5-10 minutes. It really minimizes the appearance of pores and is gentle enough to use regularly.

Great Cleanser
Sampled

I love this cleanser. It leaves my face feeling so clean and fresh after using it. The smell is odd, but not off putting. It does tingle and leave it a little red afterwards but it quickly disappears.
