    Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Facial Wash & Scrub:

    I've been suffering from hormonal cystic acne along my jawline for some time now and tried many different cleansers, toners, serums, oils. I've been using this for close to a week in combination with the matching toner and bar soap. Absolute saving grace! I cant remember the last time my skin looked so healthy. It has dried up my acne, reduced scarring but doesn't dry or flake my skin. I would also like to try the mask, but can't recommend the other 3 products enough!

      I used this product during a sweaty and hard working summer time break out. The kind we all get when you have to work in heat and keep an appearance up! This cleared me up and balanced my skin so quick it was unbelievable! I haven't had to wear a foundation or powder on my face in a month because of how this leaves my skin!

        Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Facial Wash & Scrub:

        i originally bought this just because i LOVE shea moisture and i figured why not. this exceeded my expectations, it's so great. i have naturally oily skin but it's very sensitive to drying and flaking if too harsh. This is so delicate, i use it every other day with a facial brush as a wash rather than a scrub, but when i'm feeling dry or oily i use it as a scrub to help balance my skin. it's literally so great

        Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Facial Wash & Scrub:

        I'm the summer time I'm playing a lot of sports and with naturally oily skin sweating can make my acne a lot worse but I bought this prouduct only a few days ago and I'm already seeing drastic results!! My skin is so much more balanced and so smooth. But fair warning you can feel a bit of a burning sensation after using if you have sensitive skin like me but it's not so bad to the point where I'd stop using it. I also used the shea moisture facial moisturizer with the rose oil complex which feels so amazing because it can be a bit drying. I'm gonna recommend this to everyone.
