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.

LOVE!

This stuff makes my oily skin so happy. I use it on my back & chest too. This soap is my miracle go-to. The smell is very neutral, which I appreciate. The texture is different, but you can feel it cleaning the skin. I will continue to buy this product. I hope they never get rid of it!!!

Bought this for my son. He really appreciates having something that works! I plan to get him the facial cleanser next. I'm sure he'll like that too!

Really drying and smoothing
Purchased

I really enjoyed this soap and loved the way it made my skin feel. I do not think is it for people with sensitive skin. It could be drying if you follow the directions

black African soap

I have very sensitive skin so I use this soap. it's amazing and helps fight acne without the harsh chemicals. my face is smooth clean and I get a lot of compliments. the only thing you need is a good moisturizer, I use coconut oil but it's up to you on what you use. this line of products is amazing too.

Pleasantly surprised
Purchased

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!!!

Life-Changing!
Purchased

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.

Amazing Stuff!!!
Purchased

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.

African Black Soap
Purchased

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!

Changed my skin and my life.
Purchased

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.
