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.

unique cleanser

This product does clean and exfoliate nicely, without feeling too rough or sandy. It rinses off easily and leaves skin feeling soft and smooth.

Bad smell

I'm not questioning the effectiveness of this product just the smell. Also my skin felt tight afterwards and as if this cleanser had stripped it of all it's natural oils :( also, it my made eyes burn!

Hydrating and Cleansing!

I have a hard time finding really excellent natural-ingredient cleansers that double as a microdermabrasian. I have tried so many cleansers over the years and have only found a few that I like. This is one of those products! Cons: It comes out of the bottle very quickly, which can lead to spills (this is so minor, though), and you need to keep it on your face for a minimum of 5 minutes (only bad if you have time constraints). Pros: left my combination skin feeling hydrated and looking brighter; the dry patches on my skin that I have been trying to get rid of have finally disappeared. My skin feels so soft now and my pores are a little smaller. In a few more days, I think I will notice a big overall difference. I highly recommend!

I have sensitive skin so I don't typically like to use supplies on my face other than my typical tried and true products.

Used it once and it already took the dead skin from winter off my face!! I have a battery powered brush that I use as well, as this works just as well.

Brown Facial

It doesn't have a good smell, but after using it I definitely felt that my face was cleaner and it felt tighter. I really liked it! Only downer which is really not that big of a deal is that you have to leave it on 5 minutes before you rinse.
