Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Toner:

I like this toner. I normally only use it at night but it definitely cleans the skin of any leftover dirt or makeup. It doesn''t smell bad either. My only con is that my face will get a little dry if I over use this product so I normally use it every other day instead of using it daily.

    Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Toner:

    I have bought hundreds of skin care products over the years that were usually allegedly the top of the line and very expensive. This product works so well on my pale, sensitive, uneven toned skin that I doubt I will ever use anything else for blemishes and balancing the oiliness in my skin.

      Per a recommendation, I started using this a few weeks ago. My skin doesn't feel irritated afterward, and I haven't noticed any crazy breakouts since then. Already looking forward to buying a new bottle!

      Nothing special

      By Traci H.

      from Montesano, WA

      Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Toner:

      It didn't feel like it did anything really. I also wasn't a huge fan of the smell, kind of chemical-y. Didn't cause me to breakout but also didn't prevent it.

        Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Toner:

        I normally use Dermalogica multi active toner but i didn't feel like spending the money on it again so i purchased this one. I've almost finished the bottle and definitely think it's helped my skin. I notice less breakouts, and definitely a more even skin tone. I don't really like the way it feels under my makeup though so i just use it at night before moisturizing. I will continue to buy :)

              I was very excited to use this toner, I even felt like it did even out my skin tone somehow. However, I noticed that I was getting wayyyy more pimples than normally do, and now once I stopped using it, my skin has calmed down, although I still have to deal with these breakout scars.

              I only gave it 4 stars because it's gentle and has genuine oils in it. But, it doesn't really do much for me. I need a stronger toner that workers faster. This one works but slow

                      Definitely. The problem skin toner works to remove traces of dirt and makeup without clogging pores. It can be used alone or after one after the African Black Soap Bar.

                      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.
