    Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

    If you have acne prone/ oily skin this is a MUST. In just the few days I have been using this product (every night for the past 3 days) my skin has been clearing up wonderfully. I almost can't believe how my forehead--- which was previously ridden with pimples--- is now relatively acne free and soft to the touch. The mask smells really good, like play dough and it never dries to the point of flaking or hardening. This is good because at that stage it would be sucking the moisture out of your skin. Once I rinse it off, my skin is plump and moisturized. The morning after the pimples will either be gone or significantly reduced.

      Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

      I love this mask. I bought it on a whim and it has completely cleared my breakouts. I saw some of the other reviews that said it did the opposite for them which is sad because this mask works WONDERS for my face. I wash my face first, then I use it once a week on Sundays for 10 minutes. Then I wash it off and wash my face with a gentle cleanser one more time (I do this with most face masks). I would definitely recommend.

      Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

      I used this product a few times just to try it out, it was okay. Just like any regularly priced face mask. Didn't really seem to do anything. I'm a regular user for glamglow and the oxygen detoxifying bubble masks but this one is a good use for beginners into face masks. It's cheap and easy to use. gives a little bit of insight on how to use face mask and helps get you into a routine for face masks. The smell of this mask is mostly like the smell of play dough. Not really pleasant but it's not a permanent smell.

          Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

          I tried this mask on myself and my husband (I don't know how I convinced him). I felt it sting my face a little bit but nothing out of the ordinary from when I use face masks so I kept it on. When I washed it off, my face felt dirty, kind of sticky like so I had to wash it a few times. Well, the next morning my husband and I both woke up with red irritated patches on our skin. It's so itch and dry. I don't even know what to put on my face to calm the irritation. And I'm probably never buying a facial mask again. Too scared. Even if I had sampled it on another part of my skin I would've never known it would leave my face like this since it's on many different patches of my face.

            I used this face mask for a week, I had horrible break outs, but I thought I was due to stress. I stopped using the mask just to eliminate all causes, ando I found my culprit, this broke my face out and left my skin very dry.

            Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

            I love this product. The ingredients are high quality and this mud mask doesn't dry out your skin, it stays hydrated and once you rinse your skin is soft. I noticed it helped my previous breakouts heal within 1-2 days, kept my hormonal breakouts at bay, and its helping fade my dark spots (from acne scarring). I love this product and bought my friend a tub to use on his back breakouts. I've never used a mud mask as amazing as this. it's better than the Peter Thomas Roth and all other $$$ masks I've tried. for the price point the product is so worth it. can get a little messy, so I recommend you add it to your shower routine.

              Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

              This is a wonderful product! The first two times, it didn't really work and I noticed not many differences (to be fair the second time I don't think I put on enough and the first time I put on a another mask so that could be it). The first time just made my face a bit softer, nothing special. The third time which was yesterday, I left it on for more than 15 mins (maybe 30 because I got distracted so maybe if it's not working for you try that?) and it was like bam! Next day, my acne is gone and my face is hella soft. This product has minimised my pores on my nose so I am extremely thankful. I'll see what happens in a weeks time but this product is deffo worth it. I don't like that it doesn't harden or bubble or anything, it just lies limply on your face and if you touch it accidentally or something it gets all over your hands which sucks. This product is wonderful overall.

                  I was told by an esthetician that I have combination dry skin and to be weary of products that will dry out my skin more, but that I do need to use a clarifying mask twice a week. Would this be a safe bet or might this be too harsh? (note: according to her I have delicate skin)

                    A:

                    The problem skin mask is a clay formula while the newer one is mud. The mud is a heavier formula and dries while the problem skin mask stays moist. Both work well to improve skin imperfections associated with acne.
