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.

Been using the African black soap products from Shea Moisture, and if you have eczema, psoriasis, sensitive skin, allergies....which I have all of the above, it's a miracle soap. It has calmed my skin, doesn't dry me out, has a pleasant scent, and really lasts a long time. Great product. Highly recommend.
Izz from California
Personally I don't use this on my face, my skin doesn't love super cleansing washes. BUT this is the only thing I use to clean my makeup brushes sponges and washcloths. Nothing else thoroughly gets off makeup as easily as this.
I love this soap!
Product Junky from Atlanta
This soap smells amazing! I use it to wash ALL OVER. My skin is sensitive and most soaps burn my face but this doesn't. It can be drying. I only wash my face with it at night. It's kind of messy and it doesn't fit in a travel soap container with the lid closed. So I put it in a soap container and put it in my shower where the water won't hit it to keep it from melting and turning my shower black. My skin feels very clean after I use this. I would try it. It's not super expensive and it's a massive bar. It lasts forever!

Do not recommend. Skin was left dull and dry.
Good for acne
mmei from Georgia
The whole line of African Black Soap is really good for acne and as it says, trouble skin. This bar is no different, it does a good job of clearing up face and body but it doesn't feel super harsh or drying! Be wary that it does get black soap everywhere, but it WILL wash out of wash clothes and the shower. Highly recommend!!
Changed my skin
Emma from Duluth, GA
Ever since I started washing my face with this in the shower using my spin brush my skin has never been better. I used to get a ton of breakouts from my makeup and small bumps on my face but this soap literally stops them from reappearing. If you're on the fence, BUY IT
Idk from Florida and Mississippi
My dermatologist said I should use cetaphil and it didn't work. I used this and my acne was cured. No more breakouts unless it's that time of the month.
Yes I will buy again

Excellent for clarifying skin.
Gentle yet powerfully effective
Lynn from Pittsburgh
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
Beauty2You from Virginia
This is not real African soap. It made my skin feel dry.

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!
Pax.well from San Angelo, Texas
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.
