Shea Terra Organics – Black Soap Facial Cleaner
Today I bring you Shea Terra Organics - Black Soap Facial Cleaner.
There have been loads of positive reviews on this facial soap so I was super excited to see how it worked for me. Did it hold up to all the hype?
If it looks like mud and smells like mud, then is it mud? Well I’ve been told mud masks are awesome so maybe.
Well first you need to actually read the instructions – because I did not! I used it as a cleanser – you know, wash your face with it. Then I read Nancy’s blog fashionCHICsta which explained that you use it as a mask before washing it off. *palm to forehead* I need to learn to read directions – I’m as bad as a guy trying to build IKEA furniture. Anyway, I had been fairly unhappy with it as a “soap” especially a $18.00 soap, but once I used it appropriately it worked TONS better!
The scent is very earthy – not bad, but the scent is there. It goes on your face like a thick gel – similar to the consistency of the Freeman Cucumber mask. On the left is a photo of the Black Soap on. Don’t I look hot? hahaha. It doesn’t set like a peel-off mask, nor does it dry really. I left it on close to 10 minutes. It did tingle for me a little – Nancy indicated it didn’t for her, but I figure that there was some deep penetration of my skin going on. When I added a little water it built a tiny lather which was refreshing and nice. After I rinsed it off my skin felt better than ever. It was soft, smooth, supple, great tone, and more!
I immediately put on my eye cream and my facial moisturizer. Then I applied my spot treatment for pimples. That is when I noticed how amazing this black soap really was. My spot treatment stung – apparently my pores had been so clogged that my spot treatment hadn’t had a chance to work very well.
The next day my skin still felt great and looked amazing.< Previous Post Next Post >
