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 was excited about this because it seems so earthy and natural. I'd heard good things about it, too. However, it didn't seem to do much for me. Facial exfoliators seem to give me the best results.3
This makes my skin so soft after using. My skin really cleared up but then got really dry; however, it could just be the time of year. I was only using once daily but I'm thinking it still was a little harsh for that often. I'm doing to give it another try as it really cleared my acne prone skin up.
Don't hesitate to buy. For the price and natural ingredients you don't have much to lose.
I love this product. It gives the nice firm feeling of renewed skin. It also leaves your skin soft and helps remove those pesky pimples! Just make sure that you don't have an allergic reaction to it. I had one about the first week every time I used it but after that it seemed to stop and my skin got used to the fine ingredients. Definitely recommend!!5
This bar of soap is a great exfoliator. However, be warned it may actually scratch you! The grit in this bar of soap can be so harsh that you'll actually end up with scratches.3
didn't get rid of my acne or prevent it and smelled bad. left my skin very dry without getting rid of my acne2
this bar soap is very rough and does not smell that good. It also leaves your tub looking dirty so you have to rinse your tub after each use. My skin did however feel pretty smooth after using it but it was just too messy and i ended up throwing away. But if you like bar soap, dove has excellent bar soap that leaves your skin smelling amazing and super soft!3
This soap is absolutely fantastic! I have tried so many things to help me with my adult acne none have worked until I tried this soap! I wash my face with this soap in the a.m. and p.m. daily and I have seen a dramatic reduction in my acne. I also recently started taking the soap to the shower and using it on my sun damaged decolletage area and a darkened skin area under one of my arms. The redness and bumps on my decolletage area are nearly gone and my dark area under my arm has lightened. I love, love, love this soap and you will too!5
It helped with my back acne but it does turn your entire shower black.4
When I turned thirty, I started suddenly getting new, different breakouts. Deep, cystic pimples that hurt. I did a little research, and everyone recommended African Black Soap as the cure. They were right.
It took two weeks or so, but not only did this soap clear my breakouts, but it is also slowly making the scars fade. I wash my face with this at night and Derma E's Hydrating Scrub in the morning. The black soap is a little drying for my already oily skin, which is why I use the Hydrating scrub in the morning. With this routine, my face is finally starting to calm down.
Be aware: Do follow the instructions on the box and leave the lather on your face for a few minutes. Be very careful not to get this soap in your eyes, that hurts like crazy. There might be a week or two of adjustment. Don't give up!
This soap is great. You actually feel like all of the ick from other products is washed off your skin. The soap smells good too. So far so good.5
