Never thought I'd find something for my skin!

About Me Minimalist

Pros

  • Absorbs Quickly
  • Goes On Smoothly
  • Long Lasting
  • Moisturizes Well
  • Not Greasy

Cons

  • Bad Smell

Best Uses

  • After Shower/Bath
  • Dryness

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.

Not really for everyday use

By Jay

Pros

  • Not Greasy

Cons

  • Doesn't Absorb Well

Best Uses

  • Deep Moisturization

Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Moisturizer:

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.

            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.
