Shea Terra Organics

Birchbox Breakdown

This all-natural face wash and mask combines real African black soap— prized by women around the world for its abilities to battle blemishes and the signs of skin aging—with rejuvenating rose hips oil to leave your face clean and refreshed. Plus, its 100% natural, fragrance-free formula makes it gentle enough for those with sensitive skin.

How it Works

Authentic African black soap—made from the ashes of plantain and cocoa pods—digs into pores for a deep clean, while South African rose hips oil regenerates cells. Add skin-smoothing licorice root, antioxidant-rich organic rooibos tea, and skin-firming kigellia Africana, and you've got a powerhouse product that gets rid of dead skin, evens skin tone, and fights acne.

How to Use

Pump out a dime-sized amount of liquid onto fingers and apply to face. Allow product to sit for five minutes, then rinse with water. Reapply, and gently lather into skin. Rinse again, this time using the palms of your hands to work away dead skin. Gently pat face with towel to dry.

Deionized water, Yoruban black soap (cocoa pod ash, plaintain peel ash, palm kernels, camwood bark), certified organic shea butter, certified organic coconut oil, potassium hydroxide (electrocuted salts- what makes oil into soap), certified organic rose hips oil, rose hips fruit, aloe ferox, rooibos tea, kigellia africana, certified organic marshmallow root, licorice root.

Not what I was hoping for...
Purchased

I was looking for a new daily cleanser and this one caught my eye. I liked the price, and that it is all natural. I found it to be way to harsh for daily use on my skin (which is not exactly sensitive). The directions are rather complicated, as far as cleansers go. You are supposed to leave it on for a few minutes, and like most people, I use my cleanser in the shower. So, I applied at the beginning of my shower and then shampooed and conditioned...inevitably, this dripped into my eyes. OUCH! It was very painful. It also has a funny smell...kinda stale and like tobacco. I did find that my skin feels very nice after using it. I now use it only a few times a week and do NOT apply above my eyes. I will not purchase again.

It was a little scary at first rubbing such a dark liquid all over my face, but I ended up loving it. I use it once a week before bed and it really made a difference. It works just like any mask, but it feels more natural. I would definitely recommend giving it a try!

A great cleanser to get blackheads out. It is good if you are desiring a smoother face. This is a great value for how long it lasts.

Not like the original sample - so disappointed
SampledPurchased

I got this product sample in my Birchbox over a year ago and used the sample to every last bit. I LOVED that it applied thick like a mask, and after washing it off my face, it had exfoliated it.

Once my sample had run dry, it was a no-brainer for me to buy the full size. However, after 1 pump of the full size, I realized THEY CHANGED THE PRODUCT. It is runny and not thick like the sample. Looks like they got rid of some ingredients, which is such a shame because the new formula does not work like the sample. I'm so sad.

Shea Terra Organics Rose Hips Black Soap
SampledPurchased

This is a deep pore facial cleaner and YES it works on my skin. After washing, my face feels so clean and fresh. It's wonderful. I don't use any other cleaner on my face since becoming addicted to this product. I love the rose hips black soap. Great cleanser. I highly recommend it.

Like the bar soap, the liquid soap is wonderful for daily face washing, especially at the end of the day. Your face feels wonderful after use. I would buy this product again as well as recommend.

This soap really cleans your face! I have very sensitive skin but get random pimples pretty often. My sensitive skin makes it really difficult to treat my oily/pimple prone skin. This is the perfect answer to my problem! It cleans really well but doesn't irritate my skin. Your face feels so fresh and revived after using since it washes away those dead skin cells.

was not what I expected
Purchased

I used Birchbox points to purchase this cleanser. I really like a foaming cleanser but unfortunately this one doesn't foam much. I wanted to try it because it can also be used as a mask and by adding some organic sugar it can be turned into an exfoliator. I was really going for multipurpose cleanser. But it stings my face and I don't feel like my skin has been any better since using it. and it has a strange texture that doesn't feel like it is cleaning anything. And I don't like the way it smells. Would not purchase this item again.

love this stuff

i alternate this with another cleanser, and i really like it so far. i feel like it really gets in there, leaves my face clean and soft. i haven't been using it long enough to really tell how/if it is working, but what i love about it is that it comes in a liquid pump dispenser bottle - all the other black soaps i have tried have been in bar form, which i am not a fan of.
