    Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Toner:

    I don't usually write product reviews but I had to put in my two cents about this one. I do have a very oily T-zone so I'm pretty conscious about what products I put on my face because I want to avoid breaking out. I had seen good reviews on this product so I decided to try it and so far am not disappointed. I use it in conjunction with their facial scrub (I use the scrub in the shower after cleansing my face and then I use this product to tone my face and follow it with my Clinique moisturizer). I've only been using it a few days but I've noticed right after using it my skin feels not only clean but looks luminous, like a "glow-from-within." It also appears to have evened my skin tone. It's not oily either, which is a plus. Going to continue using it to see if it reduces my breakouts and overall improves the texture of my skin, which I've been battling with for a few months now.

My boyfriend also loves this toner, it really helps reduce redness and reduces blackheads on his skin he's actually the one buying it now

    i started to really break out on my forehead and chin so after reading some reviews I decided to go out and buy this, I needed a new toner anyways so why not. I washed my face with st. ives and cerave, patted my face dry and put this on my face using a facial sponge and then added rosehip oil to my face. I woke up to an ABSOLUTELY CLEAR AND SOFT FACE. I called my sister I called my mom I called my gma, I told everyone about this miracle toner. highly

    i use this daily

    By Steph

    from Houston, TX

    Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Toner:

    I use this twice a day, after I wash my face, then let my skin air dry. I've been using it for over a year now, and it has helped my skin tremendously. I strongly recommend this for people with sensitive skin, and problem skin. It has helped with scarring, and helps keep acne, and breakouts, away.

    Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Toner:

    I bought this and loved it. I use it nightly on my nose, forehead, chin, and if I see a zit coming I dab some on with a q-tip. I think it works best if you use it strategically. Also for the price you are getting such good ingredients. I moved mine into a dark glass bottle with a screw top to help preserve the vitamin c a little better. I will continue to purchase as I've gone a week or 2 without it and the pores on my nose are larger than life.

          Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Toner:

          I am a teen with acne-prone oily skin. I had tons of breakouts last summer and this helped with clearing my skin A LOT. It is not a instant wonder thing though and you have to keep using it for at least several days before you can see results. It reduced my acne problems and made my skin feel refreshed, but sometimes when you sprayed too much on your face it could irritate a little. Still, great product overall

            • Brand Expert

              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.
