    Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Bar Soap:

    I got this while traveling and I was breaking out pretty bad. I have cystic acne and a break out as bad as I was having I was getting kind of desperate. My mother-in-law who works at Bed/Bath&Beyond suggested this soap. I loved how it cleaned and it seemed to make my skin clear up practically within days. It removed excess oils and I read up on reviews excited for my new product: for most people it worked but for some they had to switch after it stopped working...which I where I am right now.
    After a month's use I am breaking out pretty bad again and it seems somehow like my pores are clogged--as someone who suffers from cystic acne I can say that I LOVED this product but now it's lost its charm, of which I'm a little disappointed I need to find another solution. I think I will return to this product if I haven't found a good replacement and perhaps maybe a fresh bar is probably what I need...? Not sure, but I can say this soap hasn't seen the last of me.

        This soap is awesome! After using this, my body H&M as been smooth and clear from breakouts. I use this in the shower every day. I tried the soap on my face and thought it dried my face out. Other than that, it's perfect.

              A:

              Although this product won't harm your skin, if you are seeking to treat your hyperpigmentation, we recommend trying the SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus line, which contains Songyi Mushroom that naturally helps brightens and evens skin tone. We recommend speaking to a professional dermatologist as well to determine the best course of treatment.
