        This is the 2nd time I purchase this product. I think it works great! I feel like it clears my skin tone. I use it after I wash my face, after I use micellar water, I put this toner on and it makes my face feel nice and fresh and clean. I love the African Black Soap bar, so I knew Id love this just as much. Only thing I dont like is that its in a spray bottle.

            I use this toner after I wash and dry my face. I spray it all over my face,chest, back and shoulders. Only been using a few days and already love it! Doesn't irritate my skin or leave me feeling greasy, if anything my skin is less oily now. And my break outs are clearing up quite nicely

              I had been going to an Esthetician for months and buying their "recommended" facial supplies without resolve. This Shea Moisture line works wonders!! I had been suffering with facial breakouts the tender age of 34 and this helps prevent the breakouts and clears my skin.

                  Liked this at first but I started to breakout from it ): it got off all my makeup though so that was nice but that's about it. Would probably work for other skin types but combination/oily skin might not work as well

                      A:

                      We do not make a product specifically for clogged pores. However, we've seen great results from our community for this skin concern with the African Black Soap Mud Mask and we would suggest this for you. It works to draw out dirt and other impurities while helping to absorb excess oil and improve the appearance of troubled skin.

                  • Q:

                    When do you suggest the best routine is to apply a toner? Meaning do you use the african black soap then moisturiser and then toner to get the best results. Also when are you supposed to use the mask and scrub from the shea moisture line to fight acne. Thank you.

                      A:

                      For the African Black Soap line, the Bar Soap should be used as a cleanser daily, the scrub should be used in place of the soap once or twice a week, and the Mud Mask can be used weekly for a deeper clean. As for the toner, it's best to be used after washing and before moisturizing. It can also be used as a refresher during the day.
