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.

I received the face wash version as a sample and I used it consistently for a few days. It worked well! So i tried the bar version(since its cheaper) and it worked just as well. I wash my face in the morning and night. I apply the bar directly on my face, it has a slight grainy texture so if youre really sensitive apply on your hands first. I let the soap sit for a few minutes so it can absorb all the gunk. After a few tries I could definitely see an improvement in my acne. I just wish I had known about this soap earlier T-T. If you need a long lasting (bc its a bar soap), organic and effective wash buy this soap!!!

Best soap ever!

I have to admit I didn't think this was going to work for my acne because I have tried nearly everything for it but it has worked wonders in a matter of days. I lie not my skin is so sensitive to even organic things but this helped my face and body tremendously. I loved it, having been the first time buyer of this brand and product I was skeptic but it has made a number one fan of me. It didn't dry my skin out and didn't make anything worse. I recommend this to people with skin like mines.

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

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.

Best purchase EVER!

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.
