Shea Terra Organics Authentic African Black Soap

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 love how soft this made my skin! I felt so clean and fresh because of the exfoliation and now I know charcoal soap is a new favorite thing of mine! The only meh thing was that it didn't smell good, but it also didn't smell bad. It doesn't really smell like anything. Again, neither a good or bad thing! Overall, I loved this product!

Amazing!!!
Purchased

This soap is so amazing...best $8 I have spent in a long time. I wanted a soap that I could use for both body and face. Unfortunately, my face (which is super sensitive and breaks out VERY easily) did not like this soap. After using the soap for 2 week on my face I began to have the worst acne breakouts I have ever had. As for my body, I absolutely love this soap and will be buying more! Even though it didn't work out for my face, I still highly recommend this soap!

Where has this been all my life?
Purchased

A friend of mine was raving about African black soap so I just had to try it. At first I was skeptical because it seems to be leaving a "dirty" residue on your skin but after using it every other day i can really tell a difference in my skin. It exfoliates, moisturizes and is medicinal all at the same time. Everyone should try it!

Great Natural Cleanser
Purchased

This cleanser is exactly as described. It leaves my skin feeling so clean and refreshed. Afterwards my face feels so smooth. It did not dry my skin out, or cause any breakouts. The only thing I would change about this product would be the smell. It doesn't really have a pleasant smell, but it's not so bad that I would consider not using it. It is a natural product, so it obviously has the smell from its natural ingredients without any added fragrance. I would recommend this, and will most likely be purchasing another when this bar runs out.

When I was picking out this and reading the reviews I didn't think it was going to be as good as people were saying it was and then I got it and started to use it and it's simply amazing. I love it.
