    Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap:

    I purchased the Shea Moisture African Black Soap Bar it can reduce redness and alleviate the symptoms of breakouts for my teenage daughter. She use it only on her face. I do agree that this soap does not have a pleasant smell, but she follow it with the Coconut Hibiscus Bar which smell a lot better. Using these two products in combination with the Olive Green Tea Lotion (full body use) has made a difference in her skin. Her breakouts have significantly improved as well. When she started to use the African Black Soap she also had blemishes and existing bumps. She started using this product over a month ago, and she have no new bumps and all traces of the initial problem are slowly going away. I do believe; however, the blemishes were reduced with the use of the Coconut Hibiscus Bar as it has brightening properties. She completes this regimen twice daily: African Black Soap, Coconut Hibiscus, and the Olive Green Tea Lotion using warm water.

    Overall this soap does not dry her face out, nor does it make it oily. It has been a perfect addition to her face cleaning ritual, and she so happy she gave it a try! Recommend this gentle soap! It cleans well, and does not leave any residue on her skin.

        This soap is the best! It gives your skin a good scrub and leaves it feeling soft and clean. My pores look drastically smaller and have not had a breakout since I began using this product. Fan favorite!

        Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap:

        I have moderate to severe acne and really wanted to try to start using a healthier cleanser. I read online about all the benefits of this soap and was eager to try it. At first, it felt very clean and so light on my skin. The next morning I woke up to 5 new pimples all clustered on my chin. I thought that this was a purging period and continued for a few more days. Big mistake! I have not had that bad of acne since I went on Accutane three years ago. Be aware....test part of your face first. As soon as I stopped using it, my face has cleared. Try with caution.

                Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap:

                I wanted to try something with black soap, so I decided to go for a brand that I'd used before on my hair. SheaMoisture is my first black soap, so I have nothing to compare it to in that regard, but from the months that I used it, my skin was soft and cleansed.

                The first thing that really bothered me, to be honest, was the overpowering bubblegum scent! That's why I took off a star. That, and price. For the same price, I can get at least 6 other bars of standard body soap. Still, the scent dissipates overtime into a lighter warm sweetness, and it leaves your shower or bath smelling lovely. However, because the product has a strong pigmentation, it will leave the streaks of it behind if you do not wash your shower down afterward.

                I used this solely on my body, as my face is prone to have very negative irritations/reactions to anything. I didn't want to risk it.

                I would repurchase this as more of a "weekend luxury" soap than a daily use because of the price, however.

                        I came across this product after reading about using Black Soap to get rid of dark spots on African American skin. This product has lightened up the spots that I have on my back TREMENDOUSLY. I'm so glad I saw this at Ultra and decided to try it out.

                        Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap:

                        I've been using this for over a year and it works great on my face which is prone to minor breakouts. Ive recently started using witch hazel w/ aloe vera as toner and they work amazing together. I haven't found a decent moisturizer yet and for some reason I can never find the SM ABS lotion on shelves.

                        They only immediate con is that it discolors your tub & sink. Also overtime the suds rinsed down the drain build up into solid pieces blocking up the pipes and I need to use a drain cleaner every 3 months or so when the clogging gets in the way of water drainage. But since it does wonders for my skin and the bar goes a long way, its a small price to pay. I also find that the ABS bodywash works just as great.
