      Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Bar Soap:

      I love Shea Moisture products and would recommend them to anyone! My daughter is biracial with tight curls and I started using their hair products on her hair and it's in the best shape ever!! This soap is great and has made my skin much less itchy and more soft. This kind is a little bit drying on my face though. This company uses great ingredients with no bs in them!

      Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Bar Soap:

      I really like this product a lot. I bought it because I was intrigued but not really looking for a new face wash. I tried it one morning and have been using it twice a day since. My face feels so clean when I'm done and if I have pimples I actually feel it tingle inside my pores!

      Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Bar Soap:

      the black soap is great for dry skin. You will see results after first use. I love this soap and don't even need to moisturize after taking a bath. If you don't use the liquid black soap or bubble bath there will see black residue.

      Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Bar Soap:

      I bought this on a whim and I'm so glad I got this bar. I use it as a face wash and it cleans my skin super well. I have oily acne prone skin and this really helped clear my face and control my oil. The scent is super nice and I would love to try more products from this brand.

        Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Bar Soap:

        Ok, I see the many difficulties one may have about this soap. It's a matter of learning to adjust your need to commit to using this bar. I trust African Black soap products. I use this bar for face and body. I have combination skin. The more I use this bar the more my complexion and skin improves. I actually leave the house without makeup because my complexion is even. You feel clean when the bar is used on the body. Great product. After each use rinse it and carefully place in soap dish. You may want to use a dark wash cloth or sponge. Yes. It's Black soap. Take care of it and it'll take care of you. I like to moisturize after each use.

        Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Bar Soap:

        Be careful when using this product since it is literally black soap that lathers in black bubbles. Once this soap splashes on your white shower walls make sure to rinse off afterwards or else could result in a blackish stain. Also dries out the skin, so only use on acne areas.

            I have not so great skin and I saw that This soap would work, so I had high expectations. The first time I used it, my skin felt clean and nice but it did dry my skin out. After a week, i was sad to see that my skin was not clearing up, nor was my chest. This product did not work for me, but it might work for someone else. Good luck.

                We suggest consulting your dermatologist to determine the best course of treatment to treat post-acne scarring. You may wish to try SheaMoisture's Coconut & Hibiscus product line, which is formulated with Songyi Mushroom, which naturally helps brighten and even skin tone.

            • Q:

              Hello! I have got acne, it's been a year now and I bought the African Black soap a week a go and i just tried it 3 days ago. This is my 3th day since ive been using this and my pimples were small but since yesterday they got really big. I only put this on my face and noting else, is it because i just started using it? I read so many good revieuws about it and stuff I bought it and i think it got worse. How long will this take? Does this also work with acne scars, do they like fade away or something? Thankyou! :D

                A:

                Some users may experience a purging period. Also, we advise to lather the bar soap on your hands before applying to the face. Since SheaMoisture uses natural and potent ingredients within their products, it may irritate the skin if rubbed on directly. Not all products work the same for everyone; you may want to try SheaMoisture Lemongrass Soap, which works wonderfully for combination skin. As for acne scarring, we recommend trying the SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus line, which contains Songyi Mushroom that naturally helps brightens and evens skin tone, although we do recommend speaking to a professional dermatologist as well to determine the best course of treatment.

                Yes, it will! We suggest to lather in your hands and apply to your face in a circular motion. To avoid irritation, we do not recommend rubbing the bar soap directly on your face.
