African Soap

I love it! It definitely works but I wish it was easier to put on my face instead of having to lather it all over my hands.

Best facial cleaser for sensitive, acne-prone skin on the market!
Purchased

I discovered African Black soap from several posts on IG with high recommendations. I have dry, easily-reddened, sensitive and acne-prone skin. I knew after using this bar to cleanse my face, my skin was barely red at all compared to when I normally wash my face with other mild cleansers. My skin wasn't tight either, soft and supple, yet felt as though a vaccume sucked all the impurities out! This is easily the most life-changing purchase I've made from not just Birchbox, but ever!

Nice soap!
Purchased

I really like this soap! It has a very mild scent and lathers really well. I do like that I feel very clean after rinsing off. It doesn't leave a slippery or tacky feeling on the skin. I also like that I can use it on my face as well as on my body. I would definitely recommend using a wash rag or your hands as it does feel abrasive. As others have mentioned, you can cut it into smaller pieces, but I didn't really feel the need. Also, it is on the messy side, so be prepared to clean your tub or sink a little more often. All in all I really enjoy it (so far) and I will surely repurchase!

Great soap for breakouts
Purchased

I've been using this for about two weeks. It has helped me tremendously with breakouts on my back. I found it to be a little too drying for my face. Also, it has a tendency to leave a dark color around the drain. All in all, it's a great soap.

The only soap I will ever use!
Purchased

This soap is incredible! I have suffered from "backne" for a long time which can be embarrassing and also painful. This soap has helped clear this up and has also seemed to fade the scarring! I love the all natural ingredients and do not plan to ever use another overpriced heavy scented body wash again!

Love!
Purchased

I bought this on a whim & couldn't be more glad. My skin felt amazing after using. I used it on both my face & body. Haven't been brave enough to wash my hair yet. I'm 46 and no longer suffer from acne beside the occasional cyst so I cannot speak about those claims.

Great for acne-prone skin
Purchased

I don't need my face wash to smell good or be a pretty color. I just want to put something on my face that feels natural as possible and doesn't irritate my skin. I struggle with acne and this soap does a great job-- my skin has definitely cleared up. I put it on my hand and then rub into my face because the bar itself is very rough. Lasts FOREVER and a great price. I even converted my roommate!

Perfection
Purchased

I am 44 years old, and have had issues with adult acne since starting a family 9 years ago. I had been shelling out the money for the skin care program often seen on tv, with decent results. Wanting to get away from products that use exfoliant, I tried the Shea Terra Organics Authentic African Black Soap. Best skin care decision I have ever made. The key is to leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing. I love it. Love, love, love it. My complexion has changed for the best, and others notice the difference. I'll never use anything else. Cha-ching!
