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've been using this bar of soap for about a week, and the blemishes I had are fading fast (some are already even gone)! My pores appear smaller and tighter, and my skin just looks fresh for hours and hours. I almost hate to put makeup on after rinsing! I cut the bar into 8 pieces, and I still have a large portion of my first chunk left. This thing is going to last a good while! I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase. Thanks for showing me the way, Birchbox!5
I don't know why this is rated so poorly overall. I've been using it consistently for about 5 months and I'll never use anything else. I cut the bar into about 8 pieces for easier use and less waste, and each little bar lasts me about 3 weeks.5
i was very impressed with this soap. it lasts for a long time and it is very effective. it cleared my skin and kept it clear.5
Perfect for daily use. I've used it as an exfoliant with a loofa, for shaving and on my face. Smell is a little odd but doesn't linger. Keep in as dry of a place as possible, you get more use of the bar when it dries after use.5
I really liked the tingling feeling while washing my face with the soap. I will try it for a month to see if really does help with battling my blemishes.5
My husband ended up using this to was his face and body. He's a welder and gets pretty dirty. I use it when a zit pops up overnight. It works great.5
This soap does it all- and I am extremely picky about cleansers. My skin is breakout prone, so I demand a lot from my cleanser- remove makeup, no residue, don't strip my skin, don't break me out... phew! i had read about African black soap and I was motivated to have a simple cleaner with good natural ingredients. I'm not a freak about organic, but natural is always a good option. This soap does the job extremely well: it removes all my makeup, doesn't clog or dry out my skin, and leaves it extremely soft. Plus it lasts sooo long- one bar can easily last one year. Tip- cut it off in pieces to use at a time, and put it on a slatted soap dish so it doesn't sit in water.5
OMG I love this soap. I have Lupus and I have skin that brakes out easily. I use the soap in the pm and it clears up and softens overnight5
I have used black soap in the past, but this one is superior. I like how it is milled. I don't get the "breakdown" with this black soap versus others. At the time of purchase my face was going through a major breakout. this soap totally cleared up my complexion.5
This makes my skin feel so fresh and soft after using it. I love it. Instead of replacing my face soap though, I added this into my regimen and wash my face a third time each day. It's really improved my overall complexion.5
