      Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Bar Soap:

      Really nice soap. Doesn't irritate my skin. Has a sweet smell I'd compare to licorice. Not sure yet if it's helping breakouts, but my back is clearing up and my legs have less shaving irritation. I use it on my body only.
      It's very creamy and good to shave with.

      It's hard for me to find soaps that don't give me a rash and which have a pleasant smell, so this is a great find. I'm really impressed with this brand so far in general.

      Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Bar Soap:

      I was looking for a daily use soap that would help my skin from being oily and prevent acne/zits. This product is great for leaving the skin feeling fresh and clean. It also smells awesome and stays smelling sweet even after you're face has been rinsed. I have noticed vast improvements to my skin, however the product has to be used with other skin clearing treatments for flawless skin. In all, I think this is an amazing everyday soap that will help all skin types, especially those with an oily complexion!

          The soap left a messy black trail all over my sink. The water was brown when foaming the soap. I would not buy this brand of black soap again.

            Leaves the skin squeaky clean. You may want to use a moisturizer for your face, because it can feel tight

              This product has been great for controlling the acne on my face as well as my back. I have very oily skin. I can tell a huge difference on new acne. When it starts out, it is red and inflammed and after one use of this soap, the redness has noticably reduced. I use it twice daily every day and I follow up with a 2% salicylic solution and the oil on my face stays under control!

                I bought this product a week ago after seeing reviews, and thought i would give it a try. i have acne and oily skin and this soap does wonders for that, ive only used it for a week but the results are amazing my skin is soft and no longer oily and my breakouts have reduced, my scars are even fading!! i can wait to see how it looks after a few months.

                  Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Bar Soap:

                  I use this soap as a face wash only. I have very oily, acne prone skin. I also have a problem with hyper-pigmentation and I have dark/deep skin. The soap has been amazing and QUICKLY began clearing up existing acne. I have been using this brand of black soap for about 3 months now and not only are my breakouts down to a minimum (maybe one or two a month - very small and go away quickly) but I am also noticing the slight fading of my dark marks.An overall life saver!
                  I am going to try what another reviewer suggested and begin adding the coconut hibiscus bar to my routine to see if that also helps with the dark marks.

                        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.
