      Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap and Bamboo Charcoal Detoxifying Foaming Facial Wash:

      I bought this thinking that it would help my acne go away. After the first week it just got worse, but I figured my skin was getting used to the new product. Almost a month later and my skin looks so much worse than when I first started using this. My skin hasn't looked this bad since middle school. I know it is this product that is causing the acne because it is the only product I changed. If you have combination skin, I do not recommend.

          WORST thing I have ever put on my face. I don't have sensitive skin at all. Pretty sure this stuff gave me chemical burns and dried out my skin so badly. DO NOT PICK THIS UP. It is too much for most people to handle topically

              I picked this up because i already use the bar soap for my face so i thought this would be better and no mess. I used it for 3 days, i realized it broke me out more and made me extremely oily.

                ok, i've had acne for years, those lil forehead bumps and some random clusters of zits, along with redness and flakiness? yet still kinda greasy. this foaming mf face wash did me soooo well. within 3 days my acne was GONE, and the lil forehead bumps are so much flatter. my skin isn't red, its always soft, and smooth as h3ll. I live breathe and die for this face wash! i've been using it for a few weeks now, and it's completely fixed my skin. and it's better for you than all those other washes with a bunch of chemicals and whatnot?? i think yes ,, the smell's kinda like play-doh but it's not bad. it leaves literally no residue or anything, best $ht ever

                        Ive been using these products for two weeks and some change, I honestly love it! I have acne prone combo type skin & before I received the box, my skin decided to have a stress breakout. I had mountains all on my chin and what not. I've noticed since I tried out the face wash my skin calmed tf down & it helped fade some of my acne scars y'all For me personally i like to have a matte finish to my moisturizer bc i already am a oily mf, and this gel moisturizer does just that hallalujer!

                          I tossed this in my gym bag and tried it after a work out. I applied a couple of pumps to my damp skin, massaged my face and neck and my skin felt clean and refreshed. I like that it is labeled as detoxifying because our skin is collector of dirt, sweat, elements from nature, etc and this is a great product to pull that out of your pores and leave behind glowing skin. Try it for yourself. I like this wash!
