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 works so well and it makes my skin so soft! I use it on my whole body. The only thing is, it makes my skin a little dry and you have to be REAL careful when using the bar on bare skin, it's given me a few decent scratches, so put it on your hands first then apply it to your body. Or put it on a wash cloth and rub it together before applying it to your skin. The scratches really hurt... Lol.
Also, I have eczema on the back of my arms and my thighs, and I've only used it for a few days and it's already cleared some of it up! And m
Overall, it has more pros then cons!
I was hesitant to buy this because it is, well, black soap... I was having visions of it staining my shower grout. But, it surprisingly works rather well! The smell was a bit of a turn-off right out of the box (ashy, but not like the reminiscent campfire). But the scent doesn't linger much, and is totally bearable when lathered up. The suds had kind of a brown tinge at the base of my loofa, but was white for the most part. And my skin does feel a bit firmer after use.4
used my birch points to buy and i absolutely love it... makes a noticeable difference...just keep using it , you will see. I'ts magical !4
Ok so when I first got this soap I was extremely excited. I literally tore open the box and ran to the bathroom to take a shower. As soon as I started working up a lather with this soap I cringed. This soap is extremely dark and when in use, the lather even looks like dirt. If you sit it on the side of your tub, it leaves a dirt residue. So I am not even kidding when I say it took me a few weeks before I built up the courage to put it on my face. There isn't really a pleasing smell to this soap, but dear lord does it get the job done. Since I have started using it, I have noticed less acne issues on my face as well as my upper back. I never had a huge body acne problem, but since I have started working out 24/7 I will get random bumps. This soap as pretty much eliminated that problem. Definitely give it a try and if your a very visual person. Close your eyes the first time you go to use it. lol :)4
I like this soap. I am getting more of it. It works well on breakouts. Downside: turns my shower black, can scratch and break the skin, smells funny.4
I love the smell and how clean it makes me feel. The exfoliators in the soap are a little harsh on my skin. So I rub the bar of soap on my loofa and use that instead. My skin is really soft and I havnt gotten any body acne since I've started using it. I'll be buying it again.4
this is a great exfoliating and cleansing soap, and can be used as a mask as well. I have sensitive / dry skin and used it on my face without issues. It would be nice if it was scented, but other than that, good product and I would purchase again.4
I love this product! It really helps get all the dead skin off of your body and makes your skin SO soft. But I would NOT use this product on my face, at all. It is a very rough and coarse product, it would hurt my face too much!4
if u wear alot of makeup and have acne ,this stuff is awesome ,i never tried coal anything,until i bought this it works ,for both and yes even those of us blessed to have nice clear skin with age comes some acne try it it works.4
I love bar soap. I bought this because it's good for the skin and not drying like most soaps. It helps with acne and the exzema I have on my arms.4
