Shea Terra

post #1 of 98
Thread Starter 

I thought since most of us LOVE the black soap I'd start a new thread for the brand!

 

I just used my black soap and my facial pouf turned brown (it's white) from all the crap and makeup it just pulled out of my pores. Not brown from the color of the soap but from dirt and makeup! GROSS! To think, I thought this whole time that my makeup wipes AND washing my face was getting all that crap out!

I know some of you have ordered some different products from Shea Terra. I'd love to hear some thoughts/reviews on them!

I placed an order yesterday/it shipped today for the full size of the black soap deep pore cleanser, and also the argan and rose serum of youth and argan and green coffee around eye serum. I'm really looking forward to using these products, I'm only 24 but SO SO into antiaging/wrinkle prevention.

WELP I just realized shea terra is based in Sterling, VA, which is about 45 minutes without traffic from me. I might have to make a visit down there. :-P

I didn't order the full size of the black soap yet but I plan to next month. I am using my sample up first and only once a week so it should last me a good while.

 

I look forward to reading about their other products too!

IDK if you guys know this or not, but almost everyday Shea Terra does a shout out giveaway of their products, you just like them on FB and look out for the shout out time!

your order looked good! hope it all works. please report on the scent as well!

post #9 of 98

lol Isabel, I just came to report on the scent: YUCK 

 

haha, they feel good on my face, nothing burned at all, but the eye serum stinks to the high heavens. It wasn't anything I couldn't stand but I definitely wouldn't wear it during the day for fear of smelling. The serum of youth was not bad, it had a little stench, but nothing like the eye serum.

I was afraid of that. bowl2.gif

Ive heard good things about the lotion though.

post #11 of 98

It's sad because I can feel how good it is for my skin but man that stink. I will still use it and see how my skin is in a few weeks, then reevaluate if its worth it, lol.

The things we put up with for beauty LOL

Okay so, I am finally getting ready to place my Shea Terra order soon...for those of you that have been using them for awhile...what do you think?
I was going to order the Rose Hips soap and a few of the butter (hello Bourbon Vanilla)! Any other suggestions?

I have a Marula Body Butter from Shea Terra that smells like almonds. It's super smooth and rich as well. I also just got their Dark chocolate exfoliating scrub that smells so good I want to eat it. I have only tried that on my hands but it made them baby soft.

Awesome! Then we think kind of alike because I ordered yesterday and that was part of it. I got the Rose Hips Black Soap, Dark Chococlate Exfoliant, and 4 Mini Butters! I was going to order the Marula but decided to try the Menthe Cardamom and Ginger Pumpkin plus the Mango and Bourbon Vanilla. Am excited to try them all!!

Ooo.. Dots, what a score! I love the body butters and the chocolate scrub sounds awesome! So for those of you who've used the Rose and Black soap, do you do the mask routine with it or regular cleanser? I've used it 3x maybe as the mask and like it. I don't see any difference, but I probably need to give it a few weeks.

Thanks MissLindaJean, I am super excited! I was going to order it all a mongth ago but decided to wait and think about it until I heard more about the Rose Hips Soap. I am really really hoping it works well on me, the area around my nose is getting on my nerves. Lol! I know the ladies that said they used it consistently saw amazing results and their blackheads basically vanished after about four days...I can only hope that works for me!!

I remember one of the bloggers (pretty sure it was Pink Sith) said she used it with a Clarisonic and it was not a pretty reaction. On the other hand, I think one of the ladies here said they used it with the Clarisonic without a problem. I think it just depends on the sensitivity of your skin. I have super sensitive skin so probably would not use it with the Clarisonic, but they seem to have lots of face masks which sound amazing for "me time"...smile.gif

It was. She said it turned her into "Red Hulk". But she DOES have sensitive skin, so bear that in mind.

My skin has been mad ever since I ran out of my samples of the Rose Hips Black Soap a few weeks ago, so I broke down and made an order. :D The Lucky code isn't working anymore, but I did use the august code. :)

 

Haven't tried the whipped shea butters yet, I hope I like them! Gingered pumpkin!!! I am so ready for fall.

I used it as a mask every other day. Looooove it, it cleared up my breakouts and is the only thing that keeps my pores clear on my nose.

The Fall Season...exactly. I am just about ready for Fall, which inspired the light sweater shopping and Gingered Pumpkin Butter purchase a few days ago. I get cold so easily, but so over this 115 degree heat for now. I am ready for boots and crisp evenings sitting outside and drinking cocoa...sigh...

@yousoldtheworld Please let me know how the Gingered Pumpkin is. I was so tempted by that. I love fall scents!

Will do! I wasn't supposed to spend any more money this month (ughhh bills) but I couldn't resist...lol :)

Damn you ladies, now I'm going to make a purchase from Shea Terra! I KNOW I want the Rose Hips Black Soap (bonus, NO almond oil, which a TON of organic companies use) and I kind of want to try some of the other mini stuff!!! I might need the chocolate scrub. I already have the Suki lemon exfoliant which makes me want to eat it... now add chocolate? ahhh!

post #27 of 98

So I tried to use the Rose Hips and Black soap again, but I got a really irritated and almost painfully tingling sensation afterward when I tried to apply my moisturizer. I think I only waited 2 days between usage? I don't know if this is going to work for me, which is sad because I was enjoying it so far.

post #28 of 98

I just received my second Shea Terra order - love how quickly the ship, btw! - Argan Oil (2 oz), Bananas & Baoboabs lip butter, and a mini shea whipper in Marula (I have Bananas & Baobabs and White Chocolate and love them!). My first order was Rose Hips Black Soap Deep Pore face wash, Shea Gold shea butter, and Lemongrass African Black Soap Elixir.

 

I was really nervous about using Argan oil on my already combo/oily skin, but I noticed that when I used the Rose Hips Black Soap wash and used my normal moisturizer afterwards (philosophy Take a Deep Breath), my sensitive skin burned a tad. I ended up using the sample of Desert Date oil they sent with that order and my skin looked great and reacted well so I decided to try the Argan oil. I used it this morning after cleansing with the RHBSDP wash and my foundation applied like butter. Looking forward to seeing longer-term results!

I posted my last post before reading yours and just realized I may have addressed your moisturizer problem! See my post above - maybe the same will work for you!

Lol, that's the exact same moisturizer I used! Hmm..I think I applied my serum first, a Dr. Denese one.. When you did the argan oil(I have one, not ST brand), was that applied first or last? I usually go serum, moisturizer and a dab of oil (rose hips or argan).
