Combo skin w/hormonal breakouts

By Nicole L

from Silverdale, WA

Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap and Bamboo Charcoal Gelee Moisturizer:

Oily t-zone, somewhat dry cheeks and hormonal breakouts on my chin/jawline. I picked this up on a Friday night, used it the past few days/nights & I'm in love. It dries down quickly but you can feel it quench your skin at the same time. It keeps me matte...yes, it stumped me. I was not expecting a moisturizer to do that for me. I have never been blown away by a product that kept me matte until now. The gel texture is what I find to be the best formula for my skin type. Can you really give it a good review on effectiveness if you're not using other products with it...not really? So just make sure you're using this with your go-to regimen. It works well with mine after I cleanse, exfoliate, mask & tone. I will definitely be sticking to this moisturizer.

    Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap and Bamboo Charcoal Gelee Moisturizer:

    I needed to buy a moisturizer that was suitable for my night routine. I have combination skin (oily t-zone, dry in other areas of the face). In addition to that, I have a few past acne marks/scars. I use this after I put on my face serum and eye cream/treatment. It's smooth like butter! My skin absorbs it easily! I love that it has Aloe to soothe, the tea tree for the acne, and the charcoal for the detox! I can't tell right now if it will help my past acne scars fade - but I can say my face is moisturized and it last till' I wake up!

      Lightweight, gentle scent, goes on smooth with a matte finish. I can see why this is a winner for those prone to blemish or break outs. If you have oily skin, this moisturizer is great for you. It hydrates without clogging the pores and leaves skin with a smooth feel. Those with combination or dry skin may need something with more moisture; however this is a winner. It's clean, without all the yucks---parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, sulfates...at an affordable price. Perfect for the warm weather...no sticky feel.

        Okay I was a little but skeptical when I saw a moisturizer that was a gel, but let me tell you....this stuff is amazing! A little goes a long way, which means the product will last you for a while. It also left my face so soft, I literally could not believe it. I use it along side the foaming face wash, and they both work amazing together. Don't let the name fool you, the product really really works!!

          Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap and Bamboo Charcoal Gelee Moisturizer:

          This is by far my favorite moisturizer. I have previously used a different moisturizer by Shea Moisture, but when I saw this one was cheaper I switched. And I am SO GLAD THAT I DID! It has such a light texture, and a very little bit goes a very long way, so it will last for ages! When first applied, the gel feels cool and slippery, then turns slightly tacky as it dries, and then within seconds it dries completely with a beautifully soft matte texture on the face. My skin has never been happier! I have Oily/Combination skin, and this product has worked wonders to keep my skin soft and matte all day! I love it!

              I was sceptical to use this moisturizer at first because I'm not use to using African Black Soap Moisturizers. I feel like it just balance your skin! I use this gelee every night after I cleanse my face! It goes on very smoothly! The first two minutes it's sticky, but after that it's moisturizing! When I wake up in the morning, my face feels moisturizing, smooth, and soft! Love it! #sheabassadorcontest #sheabassador #sundialbrandspartner

                    I've been using this products for a couple of weeks now. I love the consistency of this ABS Bamboo Charcoal Moisturize Gelee. It helps hydrates the skin after washing it with the detoxifying foaming facial wash, which also leave the skin smooth. It leave my skin feeling smooth and hydrated for a whole day. If you are concern about the amount of product you are paying for, all you need is a dime size amount to apply to your face.

                    • Q:

                      What is the difference between this and African Black Soap Problem Skin line? I have few acnes and a lot of red acne marks from previous acnes that seem to never go away. Which African Black Soap moisturizer and toner would you recommend for acne & red marks?

                        A:

                        Unlike the African Black Soap Problem Skin line, our Bamboo Charcoal line contains Bamboo Charcoal and Aloe. Bamboo Charcoal absorbs oil and impurities to help detoxify skin and Aloe soothes and nourishes skin.
