Shea Terra Organics Authentic African Black Soap

African Black Soap

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.

Make your grubby husbands try it!
Purchased

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.

i'm digging it
Purchased

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.

Nice soap
Purchased

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.

Wonderful soap
Purchased

I was excited to try this, for myself and my older son. We haven't had a lot of luck with face washes for him but this didn't irritatate his skin and mine felt so clean and soft. I don't know the long term yet but I'm extremely pleased with it for now.
