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 had high hopes after reading the reviews, but I've found that the soap doesn't live up to the hype. I have combination skin with mild monthly breakouts. This soap leaves my face feeling tight, dry yet feels like it's coated in a heavy film. The smell is off-putting, which I wouldn't have minded if it had a positive impact on my face. My teen (dry skin) and 20 yr old (oily) didn't care for it either.2
I really enjoyed this soap and loved the way it made my skin feel. I do not think is it for people with sensitive skin. It could be drying if you follow the directions5
I have very sensitive skin so I use this soap. it's amazing and helps fight acne without the harsh chemicals. my face is smooth clean and I get a lot of compliments. the only thing you need is a good moisturizer, I use coconut oil but it's up to you on what you use. this line of products is amazing too.5
I love the smell and how clean it makes me feel. The exfoliators in the soap are a little harsh on my skin. So I rub the bar of soap on my loofa and use that instead. My skin is really soft and I havnt gotten any body acne since I've started using it. I'll be buying it again.4
this is a great exfoliating and cleansing soap, and can be used as a mask as well. I have sensitive / dry skin and used it on my face without issues. It would be nice if it was scented, but other than that, good product and I would purchase again.4
i use this for my face only. it minimized my pours and made me feel like my skin was more firm after just one use. now it's in my daily regimen and it cleanses without drying me out. love it!!!5
I have tried so many different face washes and nothing works against my acne. After using this product for only 5 days my face looks so much better and my skin feels so soft! I was even able to convince my boyfriend to try it and he hasn't stopped using it!! I was skeptical at first of buying this product, but am pleasantly surprised!!!5
I bought my first bar on a complete whim. When I used it for the first time, I was breathless.
It has an incredibly faint, earthy smell that doesn't linger on the skin which makes it great to use perfumes and lotions after. I love to use this as a mask every other day on my body and face. After using it for a month, my skin is brighter and more even! Not to mention my pores seem much smaller! I cannot believe that I've never used it sooner! Since my first purchase, I make sure to order at least two bars at the beginning of the month to arrive with my monthly box.
The only warning is not to use it on a daily basis. It can really dry up the skin if used too frequently.
I got this soap with points after reading the glowing reviews and was so impressed with its performance. My sensitive skin felt incredible after the first wash---clean and soft with no irritation. After a week or so of use, pores are smaller, color is evened and brighter, very fine lines are blurred, and the cycle of hormonal acne seems to have been broken. I wash with this once daily (I use micellar water in the mornings), following with a gentle, quality moisturizer and have experienced none of the tightness other reviewers have mentioned. Based on my current usage, I would estimate that this bar will last at least 3 months (I cut it in half as other reviewers suggested), making it a exceptional value.5
I love this stuff! I suffer from mild acne on my chin and cheeks, plus some blackheads on my nose and this stuff works wonders. Great natural exfoliation and anti-aging effects; I've only been using it for a little over a week once a day as suggested and my skin is looking much better, it calmed the irritation on my chin and smoothed my skin dramatically (it feels firmer). I use it as an overnight spot treatment on really bad zits, you can feel it eating at the bacteria effectively!5
