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 use the liquid pump at the sink for my face and the bar in the shower. Desperate always to try anything to help my adult acne, I first used this when I received it as a sample. My skin responded almost immediately, that was over a year ago and my acne is Gone! I recently went away on a four day weekend and forgot the soap. I broke out with pimples over my eyebrows, on chin and cheeks. In a few days of use my skin is clear again!!!

Wonderful, Simple Cleanser

First, I should say this was my first experience w BB and they shipped me this product by mistake twice (had ordered the 100% Pure powder version of this) - so I tried this product already expecting to be disappointed. However, it works wonderfully. I've used olive oil soap for my face for years, but this ash bar didn't leave my skin feeling as dry as the OO soap.
While I never did receive the powdered version, I've found that rubbing my concealer brush on the bar soap removes 100% of the excess concealer in a matter of seconds.

A very interesting soap - I've fallen in love
Purchased

I was not familiar with this soap so I did a little research before purchasing. The reviews were intriguing so I purchased it. It took a while for me to get used to the brown suds...but I now use this on my face everyday in the shower. I love the way it cleans and it makes my skin feel so smooth after using. It's a great first step to a daily beauty routine.

OMG!!!

I am so in love with African Black Soap that I don't think I will ever use anything else. I cannot tell you how many comments I have received on how my skin looks. Definitely worth the expense.

Great Soap

I have already used the Rose Hips Black Soap, and I received this as a mix-up from an order. Birchbox was awesome about correcting the order, and let me keep the bar of soap too! I think I will be ordering this in the future. It is not as messy as the other black soap in the pump, and I love how it works on my acne.

Great soap
Purchased

I have both this bar and the liquid in a pump. I love both and would recommend both. Yes, it is messy, but you are cleaning yourself in an area of cleaning, so no harm done. The soap is cleansing without drying. It doesn't leave you smelling like roses, but that's a bonus to me.

Definitely Worth the Hype
Purchased

I was always curious about trying authentic African black soap because of all the great reviews it gets. I decided to purchase this thinking it was just a bar soap facial cleanser. I just found out that it can be used all over the body, and a microdermabrasion for your face. I am in love with this multipurpose bar soap.

This product is one of my favorites. This bar is used by myself and my other half daily. It's the cleanser that really takes care of our sensitive skin. My skin feels refreshed and ultra clean and toned after use. Thanks to birchbox I'm a huge fan of this brand

Lightened my scars!!
Purchased

My sister told me about this soap. She calls it "the dirt". When I told her I could tell her back was clearing up, she told me "it was the dirt" lol.
So I decided to try it out, and I love it! I had scars all over my shins from the years of shaving and razor burns and it has definitely started to lighten my scars. And it has cleared the acne on my back! LOVING IT. Best part about it, it is completely natural :) buy it girls!
