            Great for problem or acne prone skin, better than any other product I've tried. It can be drying so a good moisturizer is needed, but it's the best bar of soap you can use on your face.

                          A:

                          Some users may experience a purging period. Also, we advise to lather the bar soap on your hands before applying to the face. Since SheaMoisture uses natural and potent ingredients within their products, it may irritate the skin if rubbed on directly. Not all products work the same for everyone; it may take a little while for your skin to adjust, so give about 3 weeks for best results.
