Shea Terra Organics Review

Happy Sunday lovelies! Oh it’s kind of been a while since The Makeup Examiner gave you a product review. As I looked around my bathrooms and my vanity, I thought that it might be time to catch up. After all we’re going into summer and I want my readers to Smexy Summer ready!

Today, I bring you a review of several skin and body care products from Shea Terra Organics. Starting with African Wild Sage & Cinnamon In the Wild Hand & Bath Bar (4.5 oz $8), the soap smells absolutely delicious. It contains anti-septic powers of African wild sage and cinnamon, to fight germs and odor. The soap lathers nicely, but you need to be forewarned that the soap lathers up brown due to the cinnamon. This in no way detracts from the wonderfulness of the soap, but can be a little shocking if you’re not used to it.

Moving onto skincare, Rose Hips Black Soap Deep Pore Facial Wash (4oz $18) is formulated with African Black Soap and works like micro-dermabrasion to get rid of dead skin, even skin tone, firm skin and fight acne. The South African Rose Hips Oil calms skin and is recommended for maturing skin. Follow up with Baobab & Coconut Water Smoothing Vita-Enzyme Facial Masque (3.4 oz $28). The formula is derived from two African super fruits, baobabs and coconuts. The facial masque is incredible hydrating and left my skin refreshed and glowing.

The last two items to share with you lovelies are Organic Shea Butter (4oz $14) and Namibian Marula Double Shea Butter Smooth-EE (4oz $16). Both are 100 percent natural and USDA Organic certified. I’m very picky about shea butter. What many readers may not know is the majority of shea butter products on the market are processed. Shea Terra Organics shea butter products are 100 percent unrefined. This is shea butter in its natural and most curative state. Namibian Marula Double Shea Butter Smooth-EE is filled with anti-oxidants and the marula oil has a lovely, light sweet butter pecan scent and both products left my skin feeling super soft.

All products are cruelty-free, organic and many products are packaged in glass, which is 100 percent recyclable. Since 2000, Shea Terra Organics’ founder, Tammie Umbel, has been helping native Africans to preserve their wildlife habitats by sharing their indigenous, healing ingredients with the world. Her belief in animal conservation, utilizing sustainable and fair trade certified ingredients, as well as empowering women by giving them viable economic freedom, sets Shea Terra Organics apart from other companies. Great products, great business practices … Shea Terra Organics go into The Makeup Examiner’s Vault! 

Shea Terra is available at the brand’s website and select retail locations.
