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 bought this b/c I'm trying to use more organic products but this was not for me. It was too rough and my skin was red w/ tiny little scrapes.2
I had never tried African black soap before and was excited to try it. My roommate gets the type from the local store and hates that it stains her washcloths. I did not have that problem with this product. It seemed to work pretty well. I would've prepared a better scent but it was fun to try regardless.4
This soap is fantastic. Leaves my face soft n smooth. My face feels so clean!! Also leaves my hands feeling soft n younger looking. Will not be without this soap again!!5
It's way too harsh for my face. It wasn't too bad for my body, but it smells like cigarette butts (literally). It's also really messy. There are much better soaps for less money that are just as beneficial for the skin. It was very interesting to try, though.2
This cleansing bar does its job on a basic level. It does clean your skin, but I found it slightly abrasive and it flared up my sensitive skin... I do not hold that against the bar totally as my skin is sensitive and it may just not have reacted very well with the exfoliating properties of the bar...
On the other hand, this bar is a pain because it stains. I stains any bit of the bath that it touches and left streaks of brown everywhere. I did not expect that nor did I like it. I wont be buying this one again.
I was hesitant about this soap but heard wonderful things about it so gave it a try. It leaves your face feeling very clean but not dry.4
I purchased the full size and was disappointed. The scent of this soap was better than other black soaps I have tried so I was very excited, however, this soap dried out my skin A LOT. On top of it drying out my skin, it broke me out. I was not at all happy with this soap. Maybe someone else will have better luck.1
I've been using this product for a few weeks and it's not terrible. When washing with it my skin feels soft, but after rinsing my skin feels super dry. I moisturize with cocoa butter to help.
I do, however, think it helps with my skin's appearance even though it is super drying. I will keep using it to really determine if it's worth the price.
My son has acne prone skin and I purchased this soap to see if it would help. He was skeptical as he does not like to use products to treat his skin. He is a believer now and is recommending it to all his friends and family. Oh and his skin is clear and smooth!5
Nice soap that does not dissolve quickly in the shower. IT does tend to leave black marks on towels and tub is not rinsed immediately. Overall feels great on my skin!4
