Great Soap

I really liked this soap. Sometimes my skin gets itchy, so I used this soap and it took care of that. Besides, it made my skin feel CLEAN and fresh without an overpowering scent. I wouldn't share my sample with anyone!

So far so good...

I have only used this a few times but it seems to be a great exfoliant and leaves my skin feeling soft. This soap is rather abrasive so I recommend using a wash cloth or hands to apply to body rather than rubbing the bar on your skin. Also is kind of messy but that is to be expected when using black soap. Overall seems to be a great product.

This product smells great and I've purchased it multiple times. My fiance loves it too because it helps clear his body acne and leaves a clean feeling after showering. Great for skin!

Cuts your oil and doesn't dry your face.
Purchased

One star down as it really is BLACK and the runoff so dark brown on your soap dish or bath tub or shelf. But it is
Great! Would order again, a real bargain deal.

I've always had troublesome skin. I just love this product. I've been using this product for about 2 weeks straight now, once or twice a day and have really noticed a difference in my skin. Yes, I did have a slight breakout a couple days after use, but when I was at the dermatologist before they told me that when you switch products they can temporarily cause breakouts before working so stick with a product for at least three months before giving up. After my slight breakout I haven't had a new zit since and my skin just keeps looking better and everyday. No, it's not perfect but my pores appear to be less noticeable and the problems I had before (you know those tiny zits and blackheads that NEVER SEEM TO GO AWAY!) seem to becoming less notable and are actually going away! This is only two weeks of use so I can't wait to see what my skin will look like months from now! I just use it in the shower and sometimes right before bed. I rub it in and let it dry on my face for 3-5 mins (sometimes longer) and rinse, afterwards I use witch hazel and a face moisturizer. OH, I almost forgot, I cut off a tiny portion of the bar to use and am still using the tiny portion I cut off when I got it 2 weeks ago so this product is really worth it! Works and lasts!

Goodbye to the Dull

I have been using Shea Terra's soap for a week and it seems to already be boosting my complexion and making my skin look more even and brighter! I have suggested it to friends and hope it continues to make my skin look great!

Slightly disappointed
Purchased

I was looking forward to trying this, due to the price and high ratings. It was fine, but I started breaking out after a few days. I think my skin is just too sensitive for a soap, so I will stick with my old routine of kiehls products.

Ok

This soap makes my skin feel good but it's messy and makes my shower walls brown and gross. I have to put it in a case.

This is the best soap I've owned
Purchased

I read the great reviews for this soap on BB and used my points to pick up both the bar and the facial soap - I think they were both a great buy. The bar leaves my skin feeling clean and healthy and I've noticed a decrease in acne within the last week. I prefer the bar to the facial soap because it seems like it will last longer and I enjoy the exfoliating effects of the textured bar (lather in your hands first - it's too textured to apply straight to the face!)
