        I used this product for a while not realizing that it WAS CAUSING MY ACNE! I would use it before bed, and I would wake up the next morning with tons of breakouts. My dermatologist said that was the cause, and once I stopped using it my acne went away.

              My acne has been terrible for a long time now and i finally found this mask! Reviews were great on it so I thought why not try it out? It has been clearing up my skin and I'm much happier now. I love that it isn't too expensive AT ALL to get clear skin with this. The only thing that some people might be bothered by is the smell. It smells exactly like play dough but it doesn't bother me! Also it has a very faint cold feeling and tingling because of the peppermint oil I believe. Overall I LOVE THIS PRODUCT and I will continue to use this religiously.

              Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

              I'm 24 and have struggled with acne since my early teens. You name it, I've tried it. I have very sensitive skin, so most cleansers, creams, and retinoids wreak havoc on my skin. I recently tried a retinoid treatment because I was having awful breakouts that wouldn't go away, which was a mistake. My skin was so irritated, dry, and red it just made my acne 100x worse. Being so over all the harsh chemicals, I did some research on natural products for acne. I came across the African black soap line from SheaMoisture, so I thought why not? My skin already looked horrible, so if it didn't work I could just add it to the long list of other products. I bought this mask, the African black bar soap cleanser, and the matching toner. I've been using these products religiously for about a month now, and my skin has totally transformed!!!!!! It looks and feels amazing now, and has almost gotten rid of all my horrible acne. I have never been more pleased with a line of products than these. I use the bar of soap morning and night, the toner in the morning before my makeup, and I use the mask twice a week. If you're on the fence about trying these products, do it because they work and they're all natural! If you have sensitive skin like me, you will be amazed at how gentle these products are. My skin has never looked as good as it does now, and it's all thanks the SheaMoisture!

                  Im 27yrs old and have struggled with break outs the last 5 years of my life. Im really sketchy about clarifying masks because my skin is very sensitive and I've NEVER had luck with mud masks so idk why i thought this time would be different, but it was!!! This mask was really gentle, i feel like it pulled all the dirt and excess products off my face without it feeling dry. I followed this mask with the Shea moisture black soap moisturizer and my skin feels great. I use it a few times a week!!

                    Incredible. I am 25 and have hormonal acne, and have tried everything from prescription topicals to retinol (which had the most success). I tried this on a whim, and am AMAZED. I started out using it for 20 minutes every other day and saw improvement in my skin after a week. Saturday two pesky pimples showed up, and I decided to try using it over night. I put it on, let it dry a bit, and covered my pillow in an old black t-shirt. I woke up and they were GONE. I've done that twice more, and no pimples yet, despite the fact that this is usually when my skin is at it's worst. I'm in LOVE!

                    Bought just 1 little packet in store today to try out bc I do have issues with small breakouts in T-zone off and on. Upon application, I noticed some slight tingling on face which could be attributed to my skin already being dry, however, tingling did not bother me really. The mask can be slightly messy due to the fact that it doesn't dry on face like other masks I've used; it stays relatively cream consistency. The smell is not bad, but not the greatest either. After removal, my face feels extremely soft, very smooth, and my complexion definitely looks brightened! I will go back and actually buy the jar instead of single packet, and I will definitely use this again.

                          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.
