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
It took me awhile to get used to it, but I'm on my second bar now. It makes a great wash or you can leave it on longer for a mask. It has a rough texture to it from the ash, great for exfoliation.5
When I discovered this SUPER-AFFORDABLE product, it changed my life. I saw results instantly. I had the luxury of being able to try this on the in SoHo Birchbox store and fell in love. I really recommend this to women who like to try new skin care items. This is like a soft exfoliating mask that brightens the skin and smells really interesting (because of the rose-hip).5
I bought this as a more economic alternative to the liquid version that I love so much. This bar has ingredients in it that the liquid does not have. Ingredients that made me break out big time. Plus, this bar is extremely drying. I would not recommend this for face, even for oily skin.2
In love with this soap. Everything from the scent, to the smooth feeling it leaves behind! I will never buy another bar of black soap that isn't Shea Terra!5
I use black soap with a buff mitt to exfoliate my skin, I was very pleased with how well this soap worked. I'll be ordering more when I need it. Thanks!5
The description of this product couldn't have been any clearer. This product is amazing! Must have, and continue to have for ever.5
in just a couple days i already notice a BIG difference in how my skin feels and looks. very pleased with this purchase!5
I really liked this soap, and some of the reviews helped alot. I made my skin feel cleaner, and helped with the acne and black heads on my face when used as a mask. I used it to shave with also and it made my skin really soft too. I would recommend the use of it as a mask only two times a week, and you will need to moisturize after using this as a mask, and your body.5
I used this soap and other versions of African black soap for about a year, and this was one of the best. It can get drying, so use a heavy duty moisturizer (shea butter works great) when you use this, or alternate days. It does work well for acne, really brought down the number of pimples I had although I don't think it stopped new pimples from forming - if I skipped a few days my skin flared right back up.4
