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 soap works great for making pores smaller for my fiance. He's really seen an improvement on his nose. The only thing I would complain about if I had to complain about something would be some of the bigger chunks slightly hurt when rubbing my hands together but if you get it wet enough it's not bad.4
I am 44 years old, and have had issues with adult acne since starting a family 9 years ago. I had been shelling out the money for the skin care program often seen on tv, with decent results. Wanting to get away from products that use exfoliant, I tried the Shea Terra Organics Authentic African Black Soap. Best skin care decision I have ever made. The key is to leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing. I love it. Love, love, love it. My complexion has changed for the best, and others notice the difference. I'll never use anything else. Cha-ching!5
To my surprise, this soap worked wonders on my daughters acne. Have tried all the typical acne products but nothing worked as well as the soap!5
I will definately purchase this soap again! It leaves my skin soft; doesn't dry it out or leave it feeling tight. It is abrasive so do not use directly on the face.5
I bought this to use as a face wash and I wasn't thrilled with its results. It makes a mess in the shower and to be honest it smells weird. It wasn't the right product for me.2
I bought this soap to help fight my acne prone dry skin. Most acne soaps cause my skin to dry even more, not so with this soap. It keeps my skin soft and works great. Its a big bar so as other reviews suggested I cut the bar up. More soap! The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because its black, its a bit messy.4
I use this for the occasional gym-induced acne outbreak, and it really works well without totally drying out my skin. I will say I wouldn't use it on your face (or if you do rub it into your hands and then your face), the exfolient is very strong and it would likely scratch you, but it is so perfect for any body blemishes. Make sure you rinse out the shower well or you'll have some questionable brown stains all over your shower! I like that the bar also doesn't shrink just from being in the shower, my bar has lasted several months. I love that it's all natural and organic too!4
I have suffered with acne and oily skin longer than I care to remember. This product in the short amount of this that I have been using it has help to calm my breakouts. I will defiantly be purchasing again.5
I love this soap! It kind of stinks and looks like you're rubbing mud on you, but it really exfoliates your skin. It can be kind of abrasive though. Will buy again.5
I've only used it a few times, but I like this soap. It's not super-drying and I like that this soap can also be used as a mask. My skin feels clean and it takes of my makeup easily (even mascara).
It's a good-sized bar, and the idea to break it into smaller pieces is an excellent one.
