          I was so excited to try this product after read all the great reviews but this product was too strong for my supper sensative skin, even though it is for sensative skin my skin just couldn't agree. I had to stop using this product cause my skin became so irritated. I still love the other products in the black soap line

            Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Toner:

            I haven't had much success with the Shea Moisture hair products but I'm in love with the whole African Black Soap line! I have only been using this toner for about two weeks but my face feels so different. I use it after i wash my face with the African Black Soap bar then apply the Shea moisture pure monoi oil as a moisturizer. My pores are smaller and my skin actually feels softer and moisturized long after use. Even my husband says he noticed my skin looked younger. This is a favorite already. Great for my mature, sensitive adult-acne prone skin.

              As you can see there are a lot of pros for this product. I'm an Aesthetician and love the ingredients that are in this! The only reason I said "really love but.." is you have to use a lot to get enough product on your face. It's a very fine mist and I've had this for about a week and it's already down half an inch or so. Luckily it is affordable, which is the reason I still gave it 5 stars! In my opinion this is THE BEST toner you can use for combo/oily skin or acne prone skin.

                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.

                I love this product! My chocolate skin is glowing, I use this twice a day and will continue to purchase this as long as Sheamoisture makes it. It really helped me with evening out my skin and getting ride of excessive oil. 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
                recommend to everyone (:

                    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.
