    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

    Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Toner:

    I use this every night after washing my face, I love it bc it really helps with my acne prone skin but I do have dry skin so if I use it more than once a day it dries me out. I don't think it would work well for sensitive skin.

        Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Toner:

        I already am a fan of Shea Moisture's skincare line, but I will always continue to buy their Black soap toner. I don't use it as consistently as I should (because, lazy), but when I do it leaves my skin feeling clean, smooth, and hydrated (non-drying like other facial toners). I'm a black woman that suffers from eczema and has pretty sensitive skin, and the toner doesn't effect me negatively at all.

            Very happy with this toner, have yet to be disappointed with Shea moisture products. They're affordable, esp when ulta does bogo half off, the ingredients are clean and non irritating for everyday use. Only a few of the products are more catered toward people with deeper skin tones, so don't let that make you think anyone can't use it... I would recommend these products to all people with any skin/hair type.

                When I saw that this product was for "problem skin", I knew I had to try it. I had really bad acne on my chin that wouldn't go away no matter what products I used (I use No7 because I have sensitive skin). Literally one day after trying this toner, I noticed the acne on my chin beginning to clear up! Honestly this is a miracle product and it really balances out my skin. I will definitely be buying this again!

                    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.

                  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.
