    Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Moisturizer:

    I do not like that most products geared towards problem/acne prone skin assume we're all oily. I have have sensitive combination skin. I bought this because I wanted to start moisturizing. This didn't have fragrance in it but had tea tress oil. I love tea tree oil and how it helps my face with breakouts. While this went on smooth it was extremely greasy and looked like I put oil on my face. Since most of my skin is dry except for my T zone this was extremely disappointing. If you have oily acne skin this will work great and give you what you need. If you have combination or dry like me, this will make you sad. If it wasn't so greasy on my skin I would have been in love!

      I ended up returning it, just because I could not get over the smell. It kind of smells like pencil lead. It did a good job moisturizing and it wasn't greasy at all, though.

        Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Moisturizer:

        I have to be careful what moisturizer i use, because I can break out very easily. From what i have seen and read it seems the African Black Soap is their featured product. I was introduced to their various hair products, so when I had to find a new moisturizer that wasn't going to cause a massive break out I gave this a try. It works great, but it is a bit thick so I use it every other day. On the off days i use another moisturizer and this seems to work great on my face

              Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Moisturizer:

              I have the worst oily/dry combo skin. My skin would be unbelievably dry after a shower so I'd use Lotion, only a little, but my face would turn into butter face! So I stopped using Lotion and my face still turned into an oily frying pan! This stuff is like magic. My face feels perfectly moisturized and it didn't turn oily!!! The only bad thing is the smell, but it only smells when you put it on and the smell goes away.

              In my opinion, not for everyday use. I have oily skin but consistent use may dry out your skin. So I only use this after a facial mask or mud mask....3 times a week. Works very well, I still like it.

                  This is my second day using the product and I find it is leaving my oily skin even more oily! Is this normal and if not what do you suggest? The toner is not available in my location so I tried using apple cider vinegar twice after washing with the body wash as a natural toner substitute. No difference experienced though. Pls help

                    Truthfully, everyone's skin is different, and many factors go into skin improvement including healthy eating, sufficient rest, adequate hydration, sun protection plus managing stress. As part of your skincare routine, African Black Soap products will cleanse, soothe and improve the appearance of your skin, and results will vary depending on all of the above factors.
