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.
It's pretty drying. I have to wear a moisturizing toner and a moisturizer after washing my face with it. For a while it kept my combination-oily skin that's prone to breakouts pretty clear, but lately I've been breaking out again. I'm starting to alternate between a few face washes, two of which are creamy, nondrying washes, so maybe that will balance it out. My skin is pretty sensitive, and I can't use this every day anymore. The bar lasts a while, though. I bought it about 5 months ago and I'm about halfway through the bar, so that's a plus.3
My face felt fabulous after trying this soap. The biggest and only complaint that i have is that when i left the bar of soap in my shower it bled and made my shower look iffy.3
I was looking forward to trying this, due to the price and high ratings. It was fine, but I started breaking out after a few days. I think my skin is just too sensitive for a soap, so I will stick with my old routine of kiehls products.3
This soap makes my skin feel good but it's messy and makes my shower walls brown and gross. I have to put it in a case.3
I actually liked the slight roughness of this soap, but I'm not sure if it was actually beneficial to my skin, but I appreciate it's simplicity and foregoing of harmful additives.3
I ordered this soap because I read that it was great for oily and acne-prone skin, but I've used it for months without seeing much of a result. On the other hand, my Dead Sea mud soaps have been amazingly effective, so I'm sticking to that instead.3
The soap itself was alright. It didn't smell much like anything, but it was great for exfoliating. I wouldn't say that it "battled blemishes".3
I like using this product as a daily mask. It leaves skin soft and smooth, and it helps prevent breakouts and blemishes. I cut my bar into about 6 chunks, which I would recommend doing!3
I like this product, but it may be too harsh for my skin. It is also very messy.3
I purchased this bar of soap (cashed in some points anyway.) based on the reviews and as I was in search of a wash for my super sensitive , flaky, flare up skin. I have used this soap two times so far..... I cut small pieces off the bar as I have used it. So far I love the way it feels on my skin. Doesn't leave it overly oily or dry. Leaves it more squeaky clean. A major plus is it did not burn/ irritate my skin like a lot of soaps... However , I don't think I have used it long enough to see any results yet. And one thing I will say that I don't particularly care about, is the smell..... Eek. I know it's made from organic , and ash ect. And it may very well be the "ash" part of the soap, but to me the smell reminds me of an ash tray/cigarettes. Not my favorite smell at all. So, that smell along with the funky brown color was a bit to experience. But we will see how the results/outcome is.
