We’ve taken some pretty ridiculous detours on the quest for perfect skin, from washing our face with car wash-grade soaps to putting toothpaste on our pimples. Now that we know better, we rely on natural (and non-irritating) skincare from the likes of Shea Terra Organics. Inspired by ancient African beauty rituals, this all-in-one set fuses traditional recipes with modern delivery systems. The collection of skin saviors includes a cleanser, facial mist, clay mask, and moisturizer, all designed to heal breakout-prone skin and boost radiance.
I saw a lot of complaints about the smell and the products. I totally disagree. The spritz, and the lotion do smell like roses (hence the name and natural product), but the scent goes away pretty quickly and I don't find it bothersome.
The soap is very thick and you don't need much. It works much better when the directions are followed and you live it on 5-10 min before washing it off. I usually put it on then do the rest of my routine, getting ready for the shower, wash my hair, then my face. It works out fine. With continuous use I have noticed my skin glowing and blemishes are significantly lessened. (It may get worse before it gets better since the soap is so deep cleaning)
The other products feel really nice too, but I swear by the soap now. The mist feels good, I'm not sure what it does though, or how well it is working so far. The lotion is awesome! it is so thick that a little goes a long way and it is not greasy at all. I don't have dry or aging skin as it reads it is for, but it still works just fine!
I purchased this set from Shea Terra Organics, which included a cleanser, facial mist, moisturizer, and face mask. I have tried all of the products with the exception of the mask, so I cannot speak as to the quality of the mask. However, the other 3 products were somewhat disappointing. I was really excited to try this set based on the reviews that others have given, but it really didn't live up to the hype for me. First of all, the moisturizer is for aging, mature, and/or dry skin...none of which would characterize my skin. I wish the product description was more detailed. Had I known the moisturizer would be useless for my skin type, I would have given a second thought before purchasing the entire set. The moisturizer was too heavy for my oily skin and I really didn't care for the smell...it reminded me of my grandma. The facial mist wasn't good or bad, it was just fine and again...I didn't care for the smell. Lastly, the cleanser had a weird smell, was too thick and didn't do anything for my skin. Also, the directions for use are not practical. You have to let the cleanser sit on your skin for 5 minutes before rinsing it off, which is not only time consuming, but impractical when you're quickly trying to get ready in the morning. Overall, I didn't care for this set as a whole or for any of the individual products. I really wanted to like this, but it just didn't do anything for me.2
This stuff is incredible. I've used the mask long enough to notice a difference yet, but I'm really pleased with the rest of the products. It's the best cleanser I've ever used on my face, and I noticed a difference right from the very first use. It clears out my blackheads so well, and my face is completely clear, even at that time of the month, when I always break out. The smell of the products is strong, but the spritzer and moisturizer are pleasant. The cleanser and the mask both itch a little during the waiting time, but not badly enough to be a concern. Overall, this is the best facial care system I've ever used.5
Love this set. Leaves your skin clear, clean, glowing. Moisturizer is light, sinks right in, facial spritz is refreshing and smells great.
Mask is detoxifying and leaves skin clean!
Will be reordering....
Use with the black soap for a great glow!
I have used all kinds of product, even prescription meds for acne prone skin. After using the African black soap, I purchased this kit, and I love it. After two days of using the mask, my skin is almost clear. Today I didn't even wear foundation make up, just some blush and eye makeup. I will purchase more products from this brand.5
This is an excellent facial set. It is so hard to find Rose in any of the products sold in the midwest. It makes my face feel 10 years longer, and brings out the freshness of my skin.5
I have mixed thoughts on the products individually, but the amount of product offered int his set is a great value. Everything appears to be full size.5
I love everything about this set but the facial cleanser is my favorite. It cleanse your skin, heals nasty pimples and surely prevents breakouts.
I've only used it for a week but, do far so great.
The moisturizer and rose water spritz has that spa smell but, I think both are working great --- good chemistry with my skin.
Yet to see the results on the masque but, so far, everything is just great and effective.
We have ladies night every other month so when I seen this I just knew I had to have it for our ladies night out. I used some of my points and then took out the favorite credit card to pay the rest just as happy I could be. I looked to see what sizes the bottles was so I assumed they was the full-sizes like the picture. Some of them was the only one that wasn't was the lava clay it was 2oz not the full-size but there was plenty for 12 ladies and a lot left to take home. At our ladies night out this was a big hit and everyone could feel and see the difference on their face. I wish Birchbox would list the sizes of each product but i'm sure with what they have to list would take them a life-time. Just remember the only item that is not full size is the lava clay but the rest are just like they pictured. This is a great company and a great set. I wrote to Birchbox an ask that they carry this company so I was very surprised to see this company listed but also to see a set to buy! One happy Birchbox customer for over two years!5
This set is a nice addition to my skincare routine, but it would not replace anything I already use. I love the scent of the Rose water spray and the moisturizer. The mask smells AWFUL!!! It literally smells like dung and dirt, but it WORKS! My favorite item in this set is the cleanser. I am in love with the African Black Soap. I use the bar daily, and this is in liquid form, so it is really nice. Just put it on a dry face as you get in the shower, leave on for a few minutes and it really cleans your pores.4
