            First this is definitely more of a cream cleanser than a scrub. However I've struggled with acne for years. The Africa Black line however really works, especially the bar, and appeals to those seeking a more natural skin care. It's nice to keep in the shower though compared to the bar.

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

                I bought this product in an effort to switch to all natural/organic beauty products and I thought this product was just alright. I always buy exfoliating face washes just because I personally think that they leave my skin feeling cleaner. However, there were not nearly enough exfoliating beads in this face wash. It felt more like a cream cleanser than an exfoliating face wash which isn't what I was looking for especially since it considered a "scrub." The smell is pleasant. I don't love the smell but it's not displeasing. It's just very subtle and fresh smelling. In the end, it did leave my skin feeling decently clean and soft. However, because my skin has been clear for the past two months I cannot attest to how effective it is at clearing up acne and controlling oil like it claims to do.

                    The exfoliants in the African Black Soap Facial Scrub are tiny wax beads. They are smooth and round so they should be fine to use with a cleansing brush.
