        Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

        I have extremely oily and acne prone skin and I like to use a mask at least once a week depending on my break outs. I love this mask because it doesn't strip my face from its natural oils but it does cleanse and calm down my breakouts. Leaves my face smooth and hydrated! I don't like the smell, but it's only on my face for 10-15 minutes so its not that bad. Overall a good buy! and great price too!

          Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

          I believe Shea Moisture is a brand that is underestimated. I love the whole African Black Soap line; it is a sensitive skinned person's best friend. I use the mask once or twice a week, for added cleansing, and it is a great addition.

          Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

          Ive been using this product for a about 3 months. I try to use it once a week but sometimes i get lazy and forget to put it on. When i do though after taking it off it leaves my face really hydrated. I have really dry skin so this always helps ! I also love how smooth and soft it leaves my face. It gives my face like a cool tingly feeling when i have it on. It doesnt dry out when you leave it on, and it sorta smells like play-doh to me, but it doesnt really bother me. I actually really like it lol. Ima try to use this product more often to see if it will brighten some of the dark spots my acne left when i went through a severe break out. One of my fav things about this product is that its organic and cruelty free

          i can use this several times a week and my skin does not dry out, however it is effective every time i use it. my skin feels so smooth and i do believe it clears my acne. it smells like play-doh which i can stand but not the best.

            Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

            I got this product a while ago and I've been testing out. I switch between using this and the black African soap facial scrub. I use them both once a week on separate days and I absolutely love them. The only reason I'm not giving 5 star is because of the (not so great) smell.

              Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

              Bought this because I have bought a few other products from this line and they worked great, but this just didn't do much for me. It doesn't dry like other mud masks it was still wet on my face after 10 minutes and I haven't noticed any difference in my skin either. I'm going to keep using it though because I don't want to just toss it after paying so much and I don't have the receipt so I can't take it back for a refund. If I notice anything new with it then I'll post another review and take this one down.

                  We do not suggest keeping this on overnight. For best results, Apply a thin layer of Mask with your fingertips to clean skin, avoiding the eye area. Keep on for up to 10 minutes and then remove with damp face cloth. Use weekly or as needed. Rinse well.

                  A:

                  The African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask is a great way to deeply clean your skin while absorbing excess oil. After lightly cleansing your face, apply the mud mask sparingly, avoiding the eye area. Leave on for up to 15 minutes and rinse with warm water. We'd suggest using it no more than twice a week and Finishing it up with African Black Soap Moisturizer.
