If you’ve been trying to add more organics to your life, Your Teen staffer Alison Bunch recommends giving Shea Terra’s Rose Hips Black Soap Facial Wash a go. “The color and consistency are different than anything I’ve used previously and I loved the recommendation to mix a small amount with sugar for use as a scrub. I’ll be adding that to my weekly regimen.”
