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 have tried so many different face washes and nothing works against my acne. After using this product for only 5 days my face looks so much better and my skin feels so soft! I was even able to convince my boyfriend to try it and he hasn't stopped using it!! I was skeptical at first of buying this product, but am pleasantly surprised!!!5
I bought my first bar on a complete whim. When I used it for the first time, I was breathless.
It has an incredibly faint, earthy smell that doesn't linger on the skin which makes it great to use perfumes and lotions after. I love to use this as a mask every other day on my body and face. After using it for a month, my skin is brighter and more even! Not to mention my pores seem much smaller! I cannot believe that I've never used it sooner! Since my first purchase, I make sure to order at least two bars at the beginning of the month to arrive with my monthly box.
The only warning is not to use it on a daily basis. It can really dry up the skin if used too frequently.
I got this soap with points after reading the glowing reviews and was so impressed with its performance. My sensitive skin felt incredible after the first wash---clean and soft with no irritation. After a week or so of use, pores are smaller, color is evened and brighter, very fine lines are blurred, and the cycle of hormonal acne seems to have been broken. I wash with this once daily (I use micellar water in the mornings), following with a gentle, quality moisturizer and have experienced none of the tightness other reviewers have mentioned. Based on my current usage, I would estimate that this bar will last at least 3 months (I cut it in half as other reviewers suggested), making it a exceptional value.5
I love this stuff! I suffer from mild acne on my chin and cheeks, plus some blackheads on my nose and this stuff works wonders. Great natural exfoliation and anti-aging effects; I've only been using it for a little over a week once a day as suggested and my skin is looking much better, it calmed the irritation on my chin and smoothed my skin dramatically (it feels firmer). I use it as an overnight spot treatment on really bad zits, you can feel it eating at the bacteria effectively!5
I've been using this product for 2 weeks now and it has changed my skin so much. I usually have breakouts on my shoulders and chest. Since using this, my previous breakout has been relieved and I haven't had any new breakouts. My skin feels soft and silky.5
I never knew this soap existed... but now I do and I love it. It exfoliates great! Smells kinda weird but not obnoxious in any way. I even got my husband to try it. I think I will be buying it for him more than me because men NEED soap that exfoliates. You know, the grubby guys that actually work in the dirt and come home and just look ROUGH... definitely helped his blemishes of redness and dry skin.5
My favorite African soap,really natural and light. I've been using to clear out my acne, so far it's done an amazing job5
i bought this with my points because i wanted to give it a test run to see if it would help with my oily complexion that is pone to pimples/blemishes. happy to report my face has been feeling REALLY clean lately and so far, no new nuisances have shown up yet. i was a bit worried about the brown lather at first, but it doesn't stain - just rinse your tub/shower/curtain liner and it's gone.
I use black soap regularly and really just added this in for free shipping and because I was going to need to buy some anyways from Target or something. It works well, not really a specific thing about this brand but just the type of soap. If I need to buy it again and have an order already, I may buy again from Birchbox, otherwise I get it from Target or Walgreens normally.5
With my mask and this sop I feel clean and it's funny since when lather it has a brown tinge lol but I love it and will be buying again and for family,5
