Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

It's such a great mask. The smell is okay. I don't mind it but it's definitely a different smell. The only problem that I have is that once I rinse it off with cool water like it says, it makes my face red. Also it feels a bit tingly, almost burning. So if you have sensitive skin, like I do, I would be cautious unless you're like me and ignore my problematic skin and do it anyway.

    Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

    I love the smell. Its fresh and cool and feels so great on the face. I have used it everyday since I got it, and I have seen an amazing improvement. I usually have little black dots on my face after a stubborn pimple. However this stuff has caused those to fade. This has replaced all other masks I've bought, and I will continue to buy it.

      I love this mask. I have used it a couple times already and when you first put it on it feels fresh and cool, it's a little messy to put on, just like any other mask. after washing my face my face feels so clean and fresh and smooth. I love it!

        Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

        I'm new to the Sheamoister facial cleansing products. I wanted to start using more natural products that do not include skin irritating ingredients and I feel like I've struck gold with all of the Black African Soap products ! I have very oily, sensitive, acne prone skin. I only use the mask 2x a week ( follow the directions on the container or you will dry your skin out, and yes it smells like Play-Doh but it's not that bad) and I feel like it gets out the deep impurities on my face ! It also leaves my skin so soft , I recommend using the African Black Soap problem skin moisturizer after . It's amazing !!!

        Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

        I bought this mask to use as a deep clean, my skin was looking very dull, oily and acne prone around my period and I used this and my skin brightened right up! I actually couldn't believe how it turned my face around after one use. This mask has a slight burning affect so if you have sensitive skin I would not recommend, also this product really dried out my skin after using two days in a row, I would recommend once or twice a week. Overall I really like this mask and will continue to use it!

          It smells terrible. Really, really terrible. Like slightly moldy Play-Doh. Took care of my acne fairly well, though it made my skin oily all over again afterward, but not well enough to make up for that hideous smell.

          Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

          I'm a big face mask junkie so when I saw this mask I had to try it. I give myself a facial 2-3x a week and no at-home mask has ever left my skin feeling as clean and moisturized as I want.. until now! It doesn't dry on your face like many masks do. After washing the mask off with a warm wash cloth, I was expecting to see a lot of black residue on my toner-soaked cotton ball after wiping my face with it (I usually see a little color), but there was none! I am so impressed with this mask and will continue to use it.

            I bought a sample packet of this stuff awhile back and I loved it but I've had so much trouble trying to find it and now that I have I realized this stuff is even better than I remember. It really helps me to keep my skin clear, it smells great and it doesn't dry out my skin. This is by far the best mask I have ever used.

            I Use This On A Daily Bases

            By VooDoo Love

            from Tucson, Az

            Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

            Unlike the Shea Moisture problem skin mask this one seems to absorb in your skin better, and seems to penetrate deeper in your pores. After using this my face feels very cleansed but moisturized, verses my other shea moisture mask that's more or less for a calming effects. My bf even uses this almost every night ??I think it's safe to say this will definitely be something I'll buy again.

            • Q:

              I am not completely sure of my skin type, but a lot of skin care products cause the skin around my eyes to get really read and dry and flaky and it feels like it burns! I wouldn't say I'm allergic, just everything makes me red. At the same time, I have really oily skin, and get the occasional monster zit, while I usually have a few tiny ones here and there. I would like to try the mud mask, but I'm not sure if it would make my skin burn. How gentle is the African Black Soap line? And is it best for weird skin like mine??

                For sensitive skin, we suggest using our Peace Rose Oil Complex mask. Be sure to keep this product away from your eyes, do not use it in the under eye area.

                The recommended frequency of use is once a week or as needed so you can use this daily, at night, or in the morning. This is more of a personal preference based on your results.

                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.
