Shea Terra Organics Authentic African Black Soap

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 is fantastic, but don't rub directly on the skin it's a bit abrasive. it made my skin feel very soft and have had no skin irritation.

Game Changer
Purchased

This soap is fabulous for acne-prone skin. Full disclosure, I've also used it on my back and chest to prevent body acne, and it works just as well. And you can't beat the price for the quality! My only cons with this soap are that it creates a real mess in the tub (because of the black color) and that it's a bar soap. That might not be a downside for some; I'm just not a huge fan of bar soap. Even so, I used the entire bar and will repurchase!

I have an oily face, specifically my t-zone. I've used this soap on my face for about a month and I've only had one zit! I'm really digging this soap.

Terrible stuff. It stained my bathtub and was a pain to use.

Best purchase EVER!
Purchased

I bought this soap to get order total to a point I could score some freebies. Accidentally ordered 2, and BOY am I glad I did! It's got a very light, sandalwoodish smell. At least that's what I thought. The exfoliation is more evident after about 3-4 uses. It's helped with controlling the break outs around my shoulders and face doesn't feel dry and tight after use.

Buy it!

This bar soap is so effective! It's drastically reduced my acne and evened my skin tone. I use it in combination with the shea terra black African soap with rose hips. I use that soap first as a 10 minute mask and rinse. I then follow with this bar soap as a simple cleanse and rinse. Honestly this whole line has been life changing.

Works so well!
Purchased

It works so well and it makes my skin so soft! I use it on my whole body. The only thing is, it makes my skin a little dry and you have to be REAL careful when using the bar on bare skin, it's given me a few decent scratches, so put it on your hands first then apply it to your body. Or put it on a wash cloth and rub it together before applying it to your skin. The scratches really hurt... Lol.
Also, I have eczema on the back of my arms and my thighs, and I've only used it for a few days and it's already cleared some of it up! And m
Overall, it has more pros then cons!
