Nice quality soap. I have sensitive skin and I had no reactions to it.
Smells great, burns nice. Great customer service.
I can stop my search for a new body butter! This was a great way to try a lot of products before committing to a larger purchase. Both of the body butters are great and my skin feels deep down moisturised again. I also love the scent of the candle - relaxing and soothing. Quality products.
I have sensitive skin (eczema) and received my package earlier this week. I auto-subscribed after the first use. My tone now has a soft glow and I've noticed a visual difference in my stubborn dark marks. After each use my skin is clean, soft, and moisturized, and my razor bumps have reduced dramatically.
I am so so happy that I discovered this wonderful brand! I am beyond thrilled about them reaching out to their customers in such a friendly, open way and really are working on building a community. I am loving the Ivory Shea Butter, it smells wonderfully natural and melts into the skin, leaving it moisturized and glowy. I also had issues with a lot of problems concerning my allergies but this one was really gentle on my skin!
I've waited so long to try this soap! Now that I've used it for 2 weeks, I think I can write a good review. As the title says, it's a beautiful soap. Smells like earl grey tea (very pleasant and calming) and leaves the skin soft. I have keratosis pilaris basically all over my body and this soap really helps. In YouTube dermatologists and voluntarily "expert" people advise you that with KP you must avoid soaps but honestly, they are just not rigth. I tried AHA and BHA products for years but then I realized that nothing compares to ancient wisdom and natural products. African and Indian (ayurvedic) skincare work so much better on me, not to mention the fact that I don't have to worry about sunburn that comes with AHA and BHA. In the future I will have to buy Liha beauty products on net-a-porter because I had to pay a duty of 20 GBP with this order of 2 soaps.
I love every single product in the discovery set! I will be gifting the set to my younger sister and purchasing the full size Idan Oil and Gold Shea for myself. All the products are of the highest quality and are very luxurious.
from a fan for life.
I love everything about this company especially that it is vegan, cruelty free and a Black owned, women-led business. The shea butter was absolutely gorgeous, packaged beautifully and has left my skin feeling so much softer! It's also ideal for people who want to avoid parabens and other nasty ingredients in household products as this is good enough to eat!
Was given a bottle for Christmas and loved it…gently perfumed & suits my skin.
So I bought myself another bottle and intend to continue to use the product.
IDAN oil is that amazing I keep buying it !! I put it in my hair , on my body alongside cream and soak in the bath with it ! It is incredible for my skin ! Love love love it !!!
Both of these products are fantastic, the candle is beautiful and burns more cleanly and evenly than any other candle I’ve come across (and I’m pretty candle-obsessed!) The oil was already an absolute favourite of mine and my husband’s; we can’t live without the Idan magic now!
I use it post shower and though it takes a bit to melt in my hands it absorbs really well and seems to keep nourishing my skin for more than a day. I really love its nutty smell too.
I was really looking forward to trying this soap when it came back in stock after reading all the great reviews - and it was worth the wait and did not disappoint!
I have sensitive skin and have had negative experiences with some black soaps in the past, but I’ve been using this one for over a week and it’s great. It’s very moisturising and great for exfoliation. It leaves my skin feeling soft and generally amazing.
Also want to mention the fantastic customer service every time I order from Liha. The whole team is great, but special mention goes out to Ruth who managed to get a another bar of soap out to me (free of charge) the day after I informed Liha that Royal Mail did not send me my full order. As far as I could make out it was Royal Mail’s issue and not Liha’s.
The customer service is as amazing as their products!
I love the idan oil, it soaks right in to my skin & the scent is beautiful. I suffer from dry skin, especially on my legs but not any more with this bottle of goodness!
The Indian oil is amazing!!!
I love the texture and how it dissolves into your skin. The fragrance is heavenly and there is no need to were perfume when you have this on your skin.
