Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Bar Soap:

This is the best facial product I have ever used!! Smells good , feels good , works great ! I have tried many things but you can see the difference in just a couple of days of using the african black soap. I wash my face with it every night b/c of blemishes and when pimples appear. It clears it up by the next 3 days!! Low price , great value! Absolutely love

      Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Bar Soap:

      I get acne on my back and chest especially once summer rolls around. I feel in love with this, after once 3 uses my acne is almost completely gone. I even love the smell and it lathers a lot so the bar lasts forever!

      Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Bar Soap:

      I have struggled with horrible cystic acne since I was in 5th grade. I have tried everything short of accutane (which my mother won't let me try because of the side effects) including several different prescription products. Some things have worked for a short while, but my acne has gotten bad again. However, this stuff works the best over anything. It is exceedingly easy to use, and works almost immediately. It has cleared out most of my cystic acne as well has balanced my pH by quite a bit- I don't sweat nearly as much as I used to. It makes me feel good about my skin for the first time in many, many years.

      Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Bar Soap:

      I have used just about every product I could get my hands on, not to mention a bunch of home remedies and masks to eliminate my acne/scarring and finally decided to give this product a try after hearing multiple people rave about how well it worked for them. I was a little skeptical since I've tried just about everything you could think of but decided to check it out anyway and I'm SO happy that I did because just from the first use I noticed an immediate change in my acne/scarring and it made my face feel amazing. My acne pretty much cleared up overnight and my scarring has become noticeably lighter. :)

        Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Bar Soap:

        I picked this product up two evenings ago. My face has had itchy, irritated, red patches beside my nose and on my chin for about a week now.It was beginning to result in flaky skin in those areas as well. I remembered that using African Black Soap body wash from Alaffia in the past helped to clam my skin and was hoping that this bar from Shea Moisture would help with my face.

        I was actually shocked by how QUICKLY this relieved the itching and dryness. I washed my face using soap and warm water, then patted dry and put on my regular use moisturizer. My face felt better instantly. I used it again the following morning and night. There is still a litte bit of redness but the dry, the itch, and the flaking are completely gone.

        I have tried several of the Shea Moisture products and they do not disappoint. I also think they are reasonably priced for the quality you get. I don't normally review many products but am very happy with this particular product and how quickly I saw the effects of using it.

            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.
