Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

I use this product twice weekly for my pesky oily/combination skin & every time I can see an almost immediate difference!! Smells very much like clay; But, I happen to enjoy the smell! Leaves my skin feeling clean & refreshed & the ingredients are pure & recognizable! Can't say that for many competitors of this brand... Good price point, amazing product, I will buy & buy again!!! May not be best suited for very dry skin types, but I have not experienced any irritation with this product.

Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

i have been using this once every other week since i got it in february and since then my face has been looking and feeling amazing, it does have a weird smell but i don't mind that. it's not drying at all like other face masks on the market. when i wipe it off, it leaves my skin super soft and moisturized, not oily at all. i love it, highly recommend this to anyone w problematic skin, although i'm not sure how this would work for acne because i don't really break out but other than that it's a great product. shea moisture never disappoints

      Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

      First, I don't get the scent of play-doh. To me the mask smells like clay plus a bit medicinal and fresh. I think it smells like a spa scent and I love it. But maybe I'm weird because I feel alone in that opinion. I have sensitive skin that's mostly dry, but I occasionally have breakouts. This mask left my skin feeling soft, clean, and calmed. It IS messy, especially because it's black. I stained my washcloth with it. Ooops! But a little goes a long way and if you use it before taking a shower, you don't have to stain your washcloth to rinse it off.

      I use this product when my skin needs a little bit of a recharge after a breakout. The smell is quite prominent and smells a little like play-doh but I personally love it! My boyfriend compliments how great my skin looks every time I use this! My skin can be quite sensitive sometimes but it has yet to give me a problem. Leaves my skin feeling smooth and clarified!

        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.

          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.

          • Q:

            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)

            So there is a clay mask and a mud mask which one is better for acne?

            • Brand Expert

              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.
