Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

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.

        I had huge usual acne cysts on my chin because of my monthly cycle and This mask controlled them amazing! Not only does it control your breakouts but it also clears your skin by time. This is the only thing that has worked for my really acne prone skin I've tried everything from salycilic acid and benzoyl peroxide and it did not work until the use of this mask. It's also helped my skin recover from my benzoyl peroxide irritation and scars. Great mask. Do not doubt in purchasing. (:

              I had high hopes for this mask but unfortunately it severely irritated my skin!! I used it for the recommended time but after I took it off my skin was red and dry. 2 days after using it my skin is still irritated and hurts to touch. I've tried moisturizing and its still not taking care of the dryness and irritation.

              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.

                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.

                      This product helps to address acne, other troubled skin issues and improve your complexion. However, for dark spots, we suggest the Coconut & Hibiscus Spot Correcting Moisturizer and/or the Coconut & Hibiscus Even Skin Tone Crème.

                    I'm just wondering what the difference is between this one and the problem skin facial mask. They seem very similar, but do have different ingredients. Do they target different skin issues or have different effects?

                      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.

                  • 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??
