    Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Moisturizer:

    After just 2 uses I already saw a difference in my skin! I went about my usual makeup routine, but later in the day I noticed I wasn't as oily as I usual get, I didn't even feel a need to blot at all! The texture and smell are a bit odd, but I personally don't mind. Doesn't make me look oily at all or break me out! So excited to keep using this.

      Really good moisturizer. I love applying it in the morning because it makes a good canvas for my makeup. I have oily skin, and this moisturizer helps control my oily T zone.

        very mattifying moisturizer

        By eveieve

        from Washington state

        Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Moisturizer:

        This is probably the best moisturizer for oily skin. It keeps the oil at bay and helps with blemishes. I think it is a great product but certainly isn't a miracle worker. I still get a little oily but it's the only moisturizer that keeps me non oily. But I won't use any other moisturizer. I highly recommend it.

        It's true, it smells like pencil lead. The smell doesn't last though, I don't notice it once I've applied it. Other than that, I like it. It absorbs very quickly and leaves my skin feeling clean after application, not greasy.

            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!

                  For black spots, we suggest SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Facial Care because it contains Songyi Mushroom that helps to brighten and even out skin tone.

                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

                  A:

                  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.
