        Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Moisturizer:

        I use this morning and evening after I wash my face. I have very dry and sensitive skin, and this is the one heavier moisturizer that doesn't make me break out. The smell isn't great but it fades quickly so it's not a big deal.

              I love this moisturizer but I only use it at night! It makes my skin really oily however it keeps my skin really hydrated and helps with acne and acne prevention! It works wonders at while your asleep, but can make you really oily if you add makeup ontop. But It also leaves my skin really soft

                      This will help balance oil and blemished complexion while moisturizing. To fade dark spots and even skin tone, while brightening the skin, we'd suggest our Coconut & Hibiscus Spot Correcting Moisturizer.

                      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.
