        Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Facial Mask:

        I really wanted to love this product because I've had some blemishes and I'm extremely oily. I never had sensitive skin or never really allergic to skincare ingredients. The moment I put this on it stung quite a bit removed it left my skin feeling clean but so red. Later that night noticed some blotches on my skin and anything I touched my skin with, it would burn like crazy. This mask made the areas by my mouth and cheeks so dry and flakey which is probably due to the fact it burned my skin. Now I'm going through what feels like a sunburn, my skin is starting to peel a bit too :(

          I washed my face then applied this mask and let it sit for about 15 minutes. For the previous week or so I had continuous breakouts, but within the next day or so my skin was noticeably clearer. I now use twice a week and highly recommend.

            This is amazing! I have extremely sensitive skin. I have a lot of acne, dry skin and an oily nose. This mask felt so hydrating and made my skin feel very clean after use. After using this for two weeks my nose no longer got so oily and my face isn't so dry! It doesn't smell bad at all to me. I like how natural it is too, great for sensitive skin!

              I use this about once a week or so while I'm relaxing in the bath. I have skin that is dry everywhere, but acne-prone on my cheeks, chin, and upper lip, so I apply it to those areas as a "mask beard". It doesn't dry me out, and does help reduce blemishes in my problem areas. The scent is a little strong, but not unpleasant, those who are sensitive to scent may experience issues.

              I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! This mask leaves skin feeling soft and clean. Follow up with some moisturizer and you are good to go. Right after taking it off I noticed my skin looks clearer and redness was minimized. It kind of smells like play dough but honestly it works so well I don't mid the smell.

                  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.

                  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.
