Shea Terra Organics Authentic African Black Soap is amazing!
Purchased

Having not really used soap as a facial cleanser I wasn't sure what to expect. You lather up the soap and apply like a mask on your face. The soap was super easy to use/apply and after leaving on for a few minutes I washed it off. It left my complexion clearer and smoother without drying out my face. Love it!

Love. This. Stuff.
Purchased

I bought this once when I needed to get my order amount higher to get some free stuff. Omg, best $8 ever. I have since bought an additional one and another for a friend. I haven't had a breakout since I started using it on my face. I started using it on entire body since I started getting breakouts on my back. This cleared those RIGHT up. The soap has natural exfoliants so using a loofah isn't necessary. Be warned though, because the suds are brown, your shower might start looking ickier sooner. But it was always icky, you just didn't notice. Buy this soap; clean your tub more often.

OBSESSED
Purchased

I love this soap. When I say that it changed my life, it really changed my life. I was struggling with adult on-set acne on my lower jawline that was constantly inflamed and painful. I purchased this with some Birchbox points, and I am floored at how amazing this works. I have had maybe one small breakout since using this daily, and that was due to hormone fluctuations! Keeps my skin so soft and smooth, I really cannot say enough about this and plan on buying it for Christmas for all of my family members.

This soap is the best! I use it all over in the shower and I also use it to shave. My face broke out a bit after using it for two weeks, but I have not had a pimple since:) I will definitely be buying this regularly.

Perfect for Acne.
Purchased

I've struggled with acne ever since I started puberty, and I've had a hard time finding a soap that makes me feel good, keeps my skin clean, and doesn't dry my skin out too much. This is going to become a new staple in my house. This soap leaves my skin feeling clean and smooth and soft. It doesn't leave my skin feeling tight and dry. My acne was noticeably better after only a week of using this, and has steadily continued to improve over the months since I started. I love this soap. It does have a smell that's not entirely pleasant, but it isn't strong and as soon as the soap is rinsed off of me, so is the scent. So I really don't mind. Small price to pay for the pleasure of having clear skin.

Awesome
Purchased

This is the best Black African soap I've used. Warning though...this is exfoliating and has a serious "grit" factor. I use it on my legs, which tend to be dry and scaley...it's great for that.

Gentle, Fantastic Little Bar
Purchased

My husband and I use this soap to wash our faces daily. If you are a first time user, don't be alarmed by the muddy appearance it can take once wet. Completely normal! Once you rinse, your skin will feel brand new!!!
