            good old fashioned African black bar soap, helps with adult acne and mature skin, definitely makes cleansing very efficient and easy, maybe overdriving for some

                I bought this on a whim as I was out of my normal Black Soap. I would not say this is an authentic African Black soap but it does what it says it will do. Cleans your skin. I like the smell of this soap, it leaves my skin feeling clean and soft.

                Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Bar Soap:

                I used to use this product every day and night but now I switched to just the morning. This face wash saved my skin. I struggled through teenage acne and now I am 20 and this worked best for my skin. It is a bit drying to your skin but nothing but some good moisturizer to fix that problem. This is the only thing that has worked for my skin and I live by this. If you're iffy and this product give it a try at least, everyone's skin is different but you never know. I thought I was doomed until my mom came home with this product. Advice: Cut pieces off of the soap don't wet the whole bar and make sure you keep the unused piece in a plastic baggy or something. It gets really residuey-ish it looks gross when its nasty. So keep it clean, keep in mind this is going on your skin.

                    I use this soap morning and night on my face. I have some dark spots from acne that I need cleared. I have tried Murad and Peter Thomas Roth. Neither cleans my face like this soap and my dark spots are beginning to lighten after 2 weeks of use. I have heard before that it is drying for your. But I have oily skin and have not noticed any difference.

                        A:

                        There's no need to stop using your daily cleanser. Since our products are made with natural, organic and ethically sourced ingredients, you shouldn't have any bad reactions. However, whenever you're trying new products, we suggest performing a patch test first to make sure of this.

                        This African Black Soap helps balance and clear the skin while calming itching and irritation. It's great to use from head to toe. To even the skin we'd suggest following it up with the Coconut and Hibiscus Body Lotion. It evens and tones the skin while moisturizing.

                        The African Black Soap Bar Soap can be used on skin experiencing cystic acne. 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. If you are using any prescriptions for your cystic acne or if you are under the care of a dermatologist, we would recommend consulting him/her prior to use to review the ingredients list to ensure it is safe for you to use.
