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.

Love it!!

Leaves my skin feeling super clean and not at all dry. Cleared up dry patches and bumps on my skin. I was skeptical at first, but am a true believer in this soap.

Perfect

I loooove this soap. I used it while in the shower and it left my skin tight and smooth. I used as directed with my face and it left my face feeling tight and not oily.

This cleared up my acne better than anything the dermatologist has been prescribing me since my teens. Not to mention how un-natural all those creams and washes were! This contains nothing but all-natural, good-for-you ingredients and cleanses and refreshes my skin leaving it silky soft and smooth, without over-drying.

Great for my face
Purchased

I use this every morning in the shower with my Clarisonic. The combination agrees with my skin, keeping it smooth and not too dry.

Smells odd but the effect it has on your skin is amazing and the scent does not stay on your skin. I plan on cutting the bar into smaller pieces to decrease messiness and preserve the soap. I'm sure this bar will last a long time. Will definitely purchase again!

LOVE this soap

Love, love, love this soap. I use it on my face every other day or so to battle blemishes and it works superbly. I'd tried an activated charcoal soap before that I enjoyed immensely, and this is even better. Would definitely purchase again!

GREAT PRODUCT
Purchased

I bought this soap and I love it :) It seems to be working and clearing up my acne.
DO NOT USE IT IN THE SHOWER! It can make a mess. Use it at your sink before you take a shower.
I highly recommend this soap to anyone suffering from acne. I will be buying again.

I use this in the morning and the Rose Hips Black Soap Deep Pore Facial Cleanser at night. These have done wonders for my skin. Smoother, brighter and little to no breakouts!

Lovin' this!
Purchased

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!

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.
