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.
Other than the terrible ring it left in my shower, this product is amazing! I was advised to try it to clear up small whiteheads on my chest, and it cleared them up after using for 2 days. It tingles a bit, which was odd, but I will be ordering this again!5
This product has done amazing things for my skin in just a short 3 days, I've seen more improvement from the use of just this product then any other expensive or dermatologist recommended product. I've literally tried every product out there for my acne and if everything keeps going well with the African black soap my acne will soon be gone! Highly recommend this product, especially with such a great price!5
I received this soap as a gift, i was very excited to use it since it was recommended for acne. I used the soap as soon as I received it n was happy with the way my skin felt. After a couple of days my skin got very dry and after several weeks it did not improve my acne. I am still using the soap but not as a mask first and I don't even notice a smell as stated in previous reviews.3
I really bought this based on the great reviews it received from other Birch girls. When purchasing bar soap a guideline I use is that If water is the first ingredient I don't buy. It has to be a good oil as number one. This qualified and after reading the reviews I had to try it. It has enough suds, I like that you can use it as a mask. I have sensitive skin and could not leave it on the whole 5 minutes because as others said it did start tingling. But when washed off there were no problems. Now while this does not smell bad in my opinion, it does not smell good either which is the only reason for a four. I want to smell terrific when exiting the shower and fresh not like this soap. I will use it once a week until gone and then reassess if I repurchase. It is a good deal price wise.4
This is a great product for problem skin. It definitely reduced my pores after two weeks and helped with oily skin. It does however leave your skin really dry if you use it everyday.4
I saw some reviews in here talking about it being a powder or something to that effect. I can say with certainty after receiving it that it's a soap. I used it with a muslin cloth and my face ended up feeling very clean. It smells good too. I've only used it once so far so I can't report on any long term effects yet, but overall I'm quite pleased with it.5
I really like this stuff. It can be used as either a face wash or a face mask. It has an ashy smell, but it's not all that noticeable. All in all, I would recommend this product.5
Who would have ever thought that a soap that looks like dirt when I rub it on my skin would be so great! This soap makes my skin SUPER soft and gets rid of my blemishes. I will never let this one go!5
I use this soap every night before I go to sleep and its great! My skin is super clear and so soft! You have to be sure to wipe off all of the soap residue since it does come off brown!5
I just ordered this product and have used it twice. Jury is still out on whether it helps with adult acne.
I was afraid the color of the soap would make it messy but the lather has hardly any color at all. I have tried it as a mask, it does seem to get all the dull skin off and leaves me feeling really clean.
