    Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Facial Mask:

    Great product, use it about 4 times every month. Mainly when my skin is looking troublesome, noticed a reducement of redness and of acne. I exfoliate before using it and seems to work best for my skin. This product has last me about 8 months. I use a light amount, and if I have a problem area I apply a bit more. It does dry out the skin but nothing major. Overall, I absolutely love it!

          What is the difference between this and the African Black Soap Clarifying Mask?

          • 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.

            We always suggest performing a patch test before use of a new product. However, it seems like you may have an allergic reaction to an ingredient or so in this product. We suggest consulting your dermatologist to get checked for any allergies.

          In order for the product to work do we have the facial cleanser?

          1 answer

          • Brand Expert

            A:

            For best results, this would be recommended. However, you can also use it on pat-dried skin after cleansing with other products too. Smooth the product on with your finger tips, leave on for 5 to 10 minutes. Then, rinse off with clean, warm water and pat dry skin. The suggested frequency of use is once or twice per week after cleansing.

            A:

            Our African Black Soap Products work well to relief many troubled skin concerns such as whiteheads and oily skin, which may cause further complications. As for dark spots, we advise using the Coconut & Hibiscus Spot Correcting Moisturizer and/or the Coconut & Hibiscus Even Skin Tone Crème.
