Here’s a quick lesson in skincare history: In West Africa, traditional black soap is made by mixing the ash and barks of local plants with healing oils. Rich in vitamins A and E, it’s become prized by women around the world for its abilities to battle blemishes and the signs of skin aging. This rich cleansing and exfoliating bar from Shea Terra Organics is the real deal. Made with USDA-certified organic ingredients, it retains all the medicinal benefits of the original African soap.
I found this bar incredibly difficult to use in the bath. It's rough texture makes it unusable without a cloth, but stains the cloth without forgiveness. Not sure I'll be able to get the black tint out, even with bleach. It's also a mess, covers the side of the tub with a black film, and does provide the layer of coating needed to let it act as a mask before rinsing.2
Was hoping that I (and my husband) would love this product, I love products that we can both use.
This soap is just so messy - and everything in our bathroom is bright white! Also - my skin gets really blotchy using this soap, it eventually fades, but if I'm heading right out the door I can't trust it.
This bar of soap barely lasted me 10 showers. It dried my skin out and did nothing to help clear up my skin. It did cause my white shower tile grout to look dingy though since it rinses off like black mud. Will not be repurchasing.2
This bar of soap is a great exfoliator. However, be warned it may actually scratch you! The grit in this bar of soap can be so harsh that you'll actually end up with scratches.3
this bar soap is very rough and does not smell that good. It also leaves your tub looking dirty so you have to rinse your tub after each use. My skin did however feel pretty smooth after using it but it was just too messy and i ended up throwing away. But if you like bar soap, dove has excellent bar soap that leaves your skin smelling amazing and super soft!3
In case you were wondering, this will turn your wash clothes brown. So I would suggest lathering it with a loofa or something that you don't mind staining. I liked that the smell isn't too strong because I like to wear perfume and this way my soap smell wasn't combating my perfume. It did make me feel nice and clean but I did feel that my skin felt tight after getting out of the shower.3
But good nonetheless. I would get it again with my points but I doubt I spend money on it. It's kinda pricey.3
This is a good wash for a low maintenance type of routine. Im glad I tired it out. Its nice.
The soap definitely feels like it gets your skin clean without drying it out badly. My only issue is that it doesn't seem to lather up very much. I bought the soap in hopes that it would help with my acne. Unfortunately, I've since determined that my acne is probably due to a hormonal imbalance so I don't really think this soap could help that. However, I think this is a nice gentle soap that I can use while I work on my acne through other avenues.3
It was so rough to the skin. I am older in age, my skin is sensitive. It felt like I was going to get cut every time I used it. It also broke my skin out. It rinse well off the skin. However it is not worth it for me.3
