Most Helpful Positive Review Great for acne
I was suffering from hormonal breakouts for 3 weeks. I had big, painful pimples on my chin. My friends suggested using this soap and tea tree oil. It worked! I washed my face with this soap every night, then applied two drops of tea tree oil onto my chin. My skin cleared up within 3 days.
Most Helpful Critical Review African black soap
This product does not works like a black soap should. It didn't get rid of any acne or black spots. This product was a waste of my money.

This is a gentle soap for my sensitive, breakout prone skin. It cleans wonderfully, calms my skin, and isn't drying. I love it. I'm a huge fan of this whole line. I am never without SheaMoisture products; they've become my staple. They work better than costly high-end cleansers and face creams. I strongly recommend. And my skin isn't easy to placate.
Angela from Seattle
Dried up my skin. No hydration. Do not recommend.
Jennifer from Asheville, NC
Love this soap and I buy it again and again. It keeps my skin clean and clear. The only problem is it makes a bit of the mess in the shower but who cares if it works!
No very good

Leaves skin feeling clean and my back breakouts are clearing.
MonkeyTeToDog from Texas
I have an oily face and combination skin on body, with highly sensitive skin in both areas. I bought this to treat red bumps I always have had on my upper arm. They were gone in 10 days of continuous use, with no sign they were ever there. There were some hard particles that were rough and scratched my skin,leaving red streaks, but overall good for body. However, by using the lather on my face, it treated my acne fairly well, but completely dried me out, to the point I had visible dandruff like flakes on my face. It only does well in use one day a week on face, and 5-7 days on body.
Love the smell!

I like it and it made my skin super soft but noticed i started breaking out a few days later not 100% sure if it's from this or not though
Sensitive Skin People Beware
Shampton814 from Eureka, CA
I used this soap and at first really enjoyed it, as It seemed to help with my acne a little bit. If the soap came into contact with my under eye, there would be a red rash there the next morning. With continued regulated use of the soap, I got an allergic reaction and my eyes were slightly swollen.
Love this soap
Lisan from America
It smells really good and has helped my skin tremendously
Dried out my skin
Nikki from TX
I used two whole bars because I suffer bad back and body acne and all it did was dry out skin and leave my tub with the black film over it.
Ches from Tyler, TX
It worked until I started to gradually notice a rash starting to appear on my back, and it was starting to burn and itch. Hopefully this doesn't happen to others.
Broke me out
Mac from Los Angeles, Ca
Worked great a first my skin felt nice for about a day or two then i started breaking out really bad as I kept using it.
Never using again
Anon from florida
I bought this product and regret it so much. When I used it, my face IMMEDIATELY turned a deep shade of cherry red. It made my skin burn so much to the point where I almost had to go to the hospital.
emily from los angeles, ca
couple years ago my acne was at its worst, i had tried every product i can think of and came across this online. i'm so glad i purchased this as this changed my skin! from horrible acne my skin is now better than ever! i did stop using this product as it can be messy but i'd definitely re purchase this if my skin ever gets bad again . money well spent!
This soap is magic❤️
Margo from Morrison, CO
This soap is great on all skin types! I've used it for over a year and it makes my skin so soft! My daughters love it because it's the only facial cleanser that is gentle enough for the most delicate skin, but still keeps it clear❤️
Dali from X
Although some will say that this isn't real African black soap and blah blah blah... I couldn't be bothered, because it worked for me. I've moved onto foam cleansers now. But this baby deserves a prize for helping me in my skin's worst times! My acne was terrible before. This is one of the products that really helped. I'm going to keep this short and give y'all some advice. It's a huge bar, so cut it up. Wash your face twice at night if you wear makeup, longer than 30 secs each time, and d e f i n i t e l y follow up with a moisturizer. Worth a try.
Mel. from Austin Texas
I got this February of this year. I love how well it cleans and rinses off completely. I have used it to wash all of my body but mostly use it on my face only. I don't have problem skin right now, I know this soap is good for lots of skin problems. It has helped minor itching of my psoriasis go away. oh and it smells wonderful
Mexicanbeautyy from WA state
Been using this soap for about 2 years now and I absolutely love it, removes my makeup so easlily and doesn't cause breakouts. Only down side is it stings your eyes but I'm sure every soap does. I love it !!
Best bar soap
Laura from Pflugerville, Tex
Recently just bought this and me and my husband both love it I get really bad acne on my cheeks and they've started to go away and I've tried so many other acne facials to help and nothing. I would recommend buying so worth the money
Dried my skin out
Ramblingirl24 from Ramblingirl24
I have dry acne prone skin. I bought this because I thought it would clear my skin without drying it out. This soap completely dried my skin out. I used it for a week but had to stop due to the insane dry flakes I was getting.
Laila from Mason
I have been struggling with acne I'm also African American so I scar resulting in dark spots and let me tell you I've only been using this 2 days and they are FADING along with my acne even if you are just struggling with acne still this is AMAZING it will be my new go to one thing about this it is HUGE so it's kind hard washing the face with it I suggest cutting it into strips I did 5 I can tell it will last a long time
great on my skin
val from pdx
i started using this, and within two days i notice my acne on me cheeks starting to fade away, i've been using this for about almost two weeks now and my skin hasn't been this clear in so long, i recommend.
Cleared up my skin tremendously!
Tiara from Detroit, MI
I use this on my face only. It took a few days to get used to it. It did burn at first, but I kept using it. The burning stopped once I started applying the Shea Moisture black soap lotion right after while my skin is still damp and my skin glows! I also use the thinner cheap wash cloths because they help exfoliate better. My skin is oily and has a high cell turnover rate so results my vary.
May from Waterbury
It took a really long time to find a soap that works for my face . My break out have lessen and my dark spots are fading .
