From time to time, we’ll be highlighting extrasweet customer serenades. First up: a life-changing soap.


Tall, dark, and effective—it’s no wonder that blemish-prone ladies have been falling for Shea Terra Organics’ Authentic African Black SoapMade with healing oils, this vitamin-rich soap is known for its ability to clear up breakouts and lessen signs of aging. We could wax on poetically about its restorative powers, but we’ll let Avianka take over:

“I had been researching black soap and its medicinal benefits, as I have maturing acne prone combination skin—not a pretty thing to deal with at age 33! After reading some of the reviews on the Birchbox website, I decided to give this black soap a go. Let me tell you, it is simply amazing….more then I ever wished it to be! In just two weeks, It has done wonders for my skin. I am seeing an even and brightened tone with no blemishes brewing! I am looking forward to a long healthy relationship with this soap. I have clean, fresh, vibrant skin that is FINALLY acne free! Thank you so much BB! <3”
