      Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

      Smells like play doh. And leaves a bad after smell. Leaves your skin feeling almost greasy like, doesn't feel good. I have moderate acne and this did not help at all. I saw no change other than the texture of my skin wasn't good nor the smell. It was messy and the mask doesn't dry or anything. It just sits there. For me this was a big miss.

      Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

      After 2 weeks, I can definitely say that this mask has improved my skin's texture. I can't credit it completely for clearing up my acne (that goes to the Neutrogena Rapid Clear Leave on Mask), but it's definitely made my skin much smoother and gotten rid of my blackheads/clogged pores. I like that this is a clay mask that doesn't dry down and leave your skin tight. I have very oily, acne-prone skin, but I think this would work for all skin types since it doesn't dry out your skin. However I did experience a little burning/irritation around my nose the first time I used it, so I'm not sure if it would work well for sensitive skin. Also it smells exactly like Play-doh. Overall I'm very impressed with this mask!

      Smells like Play Doh & never dries

          Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

          This smells just like Play Doh and I just can't seem to get the smell to go away after washing it off! For those who like the smell of Play Doh, this may be the product for you, but I can't stand it! The description states "draws out dirt and congestion while helping absorb excess oil and improve the appearance of troubled skin." In order to effectively war out dirt and such, the mask needs to dry on the skin for the clay to be effective in this aspect! This has a thin, runny, slimy texture (like watered down Play Doh) that just sits on the skin and never dries. I can understand this if the mask intended to be moisturizing, but that is not the case. This is definitely going back!!!!

                      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.
