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.
This may be a soap made in the style of African Black Soap, and it might be a really nice soap. But it's NOT genuine African Black Soap. I've been handling imported African Black Soap for friends who need it for years and I've never seen it come in actually black-colored. Many users in reviews mention that it's gritty or scrubby, another detail that's not usual. The scent of shea butter is unusual for many US users but it's an easily acquired taste for most people, so that part is likely in the style of the soap being copied here. If you like the soap itself, wonderful! But don't think it's the "real deal" as claimed, because it's not.1
I absolutely love this soap. At first I was a little skeptical about buying it since it was a soap bar and I thought it would dry out my face especially cause I have sensitive skin but it didn't and I'm more than happy I did. It left my face feeling tight but soft and it cleared up most if not all of my break outs. I had purchased murad to help with my break outs but stopped using after getting this soap and seeing better results from it.5
I was looking for a more natural facial cleanser since my store bought brands didn't seem to be doing to trick lately. After reading all the positive reviews I figured I'd give if a try for its measly $8. HOLY MOLEY I'm never going back to other cleansers! It makes my face feel SO soft and clean. It feels like it exfoliates without the harshness of actual exfoliating beads like other cleansers. My face also feels tighter after, and not in the it feels dry sort of way. I actually haven't even had to use facial lotion since starting to use this. LOVE it, will continue to purchase.5
This is the best soap. My husband loves it. really helps to clear up skin, definitely need a moisturizer afterwards but worth it.5
Got this as a stocking stuffer for my cousin for Christmas. She really loved it, and I have only heard good things since. I personally like the CO Bigelow soaps more, but this went over well with my very hard to please, 21 year old cousin!4
I just started using the soap and it is working wonders. My skin feels soft and nourished. The smell isn't that great but for my skin anything. The nice part is the smell doesn't linger.4
Smells awesome, super exfoliating & my skin feels tighter after use. I love that i can use this on my face & body both with amazing results. After a few weeks of use, i am suprised at how long it lasts & that every time i use it i still love it just as much as the first time.5
I really, really enjoy this soap. I use it just as the directions suggest and leave it on my face for 5 minutes as a mask. I use it in the evenings before bed and my face feels smooth, fresh, and clean. I haven't had any major breakouts since using this product and my skin tone seems to be more even. I also enjoy the scent and think it's a great value for the large bar that you get.4
My face immediately felt refreshed. I have only been using the soap for about 4 days now and I can already see the difference in the size of my pores.5
I was a little skeptical when I first purchased this product. It seems to be the trend right now, but I figured why not? I must say I was pleasantly surprised. It does as advertised and has improved my skin a lot. It is messy but I would highly recommend.5
