If you read my blog, you will find that I love organic or “mostly natural” products, and I’m pleased to tell you that I finally found an excellent natural face wash that fights acne without stripping essential moisture in my skin.
My face is not totally clear yet, but I do notice a major improvement in the texture and clarity of my skin since I started using this product. My husband has also noticed how soft my face is.
To date the Shea Terra Organics Rose Hips and Black Soap Face wash is my favorite facial wash. This product serves more than one purpose because it has exfoliating properties and you can use it as a mask or face wash. Simply apply a dime-sized amount to your forehead, nose and cheeks. Massage the solution in circular motions and rinse off.
To use it as mask, apply a thick layer of the product to cleansed skin and rinse off after ten minutes. Using this product as a mask allows the ingredients to sink in and provide deep exfoliation without an abrasive effect. The solution exfoliates the skin with herbs, oils and acids in the black soap. You may notice a tingly sensation and slight redness when using this because the ingredients penetrate the dermis to remove dead skin cells. However, this effect is mild and temporary.
Black soap also helps fight acne because it has natural anti-bacterial properties. This formula contains aloe, rose hip oil, camwood bark, cocoa pod ash, licorice root and citric acid along with a long list of herbs and other essential oils.
I highly recommend the Rose Hips formula, but you can also try other face washes by Shea Terra to find the best one for your skin type. Shea Terra Organics has an extensive line of facial washes, body butters and body oils along with other body care products.
