    Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Moisturizer:

    I have been looking for a new moisturizer for some time. I usually use Embroylise moisturizer but I found that it was too oily sometimes for my skin, and I already have OILY skin so it would not give me the effect I wanted. So I have been trying this moisturizer for about a week with foundation on top and it works amazing ! It is a little thick but I feel like it protects your skin a lot. The smell is amazing and you need about 2 pea sizes to cover you whole faze .

    I have super oil , acne prone skin , and most moisturizers break me out , but this one doesnt! it moisturizes without leaving my skin greasy and shiny. the one issue is the smell is definetly something to get used to, when i first used it , i found it difficult to get past the smell, but eventually i got used to it and i use it everyday!

        Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Moisturizer:

        I really wanted to like this product because I really love the entire Shea Moisture African Black Soap line. But this moisturizer did not do it for me. I have oily acne prone skin and it broke me out the first day I used it. Maybe my skin was too sensitive. It was very thick. It didn't absorb very well either

        works

        By Happy Customer

        from Michigan

        Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Moisturizer:

        My skin is a combination of dry acne along with an oily T zone.
        I have only used it for one day but I truly saw results I washed my face with my vanity planet spin brush along with my St. Ives apricot cleanser after that I rinsed my face and patted it dry with a paper towel I then applied this product and it did have a wired texture on my skin but I looked past that and throughout the day I felt really oil on my forehead I thought it was a waste of money, the product seemed to ball into little pieces and sit on my skin but it was sort of drying and flaking my acne along with bringing to surface the acne underneath I truly recommend the product my face has never felt healthy and I've tried everything proactive and Topical cream but I only got worst and red but this is a life saver and I recommend you trying for yourself.

          This product really works. I wake up every morning with a "set" face. When I say "set" I mean there is no inflammation. I have dark skin so I have black scars on my face from popping pimples. When I wake up my facial scars have lightened and I feel more confident. It Isn't greasy at all. If you aren't wearing any makeup during the day then apply this to the apples of your cheeks and it will add highlight, not grease. It is so soft and nourishing I love it.

                      A:

                      Although this doesn't happen often, we've heard from some of our customers that when they started using the African Black Soap Products, their skin slightly purged before it got better. So, we would definitely suggest you give these products at least 2 weeks to show optimal results.
