    Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

    I'm a skincare guru, and this is one of my favorite masks ever. It's one of the only masks I've tried that you can very visibly see a difference the next day. I have oily, blemish prone skin and i love this because it smooths and brightens and it isn't too drying either! Lasts forever and not too pricy. Highly recommend

    Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

    I love this mask! I tried a sample not thinking it would be for me considering Im dry and sensitive. However it worked well for me and I bought the full size. I think this mask would work on all skin types. It improves acne, makes your skin smooth and balances out any discoloration. The only downside is the smell. It smells like Play-Doh but I personally dont mind it too much. Kind of reminds you of being a kid!

    Works great!

    By Brooke

    Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

    I did a lot of research before buying this and was scared it would burn my face because of some reviews but it's doesn't at all! There is some tingling but that is normal. I bought this to help control my break outs which I'm not sure helped with that so much BUT it does an incredible job in making my pores around my noes and on my nose smooth out and looked blurred which I LOVE!!

      If you have bad blackheads this is the mask for you! You can see amazing results after just one time. I used to get bad blackheads across my nose and I keep it clear now using this once a week. Also, I have seen a lot of people saying it irritates their skin but maybe they leave it on too long. I always have to use hypoallergenic products and This mask doesn't irritate my skin at all

          I was really looking forward to trying this mask but it really disappointed me. I tried it using the little single-use packet. I must have sensitive skin because this mask burned my skin and completely irritated it.

            I use this product right when I'm finished washing my face. I apply it evenly and leave it on for 10 minutes. At first, I thought it wasn't going to be anything good, but oh my. I had really bad acne, bumps all over my forehead and cheeks. Few days/weeks of using this and rose water, It cleared my skin. All those tiny/big bumps were gone. My skin has never been better. This is my holy grail skin care product. It is so amazing and I recommend it to anyone who has acne.

              Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

              Generally, I have a pretty good complexion, but I always get two warning signs about a week before I start my period. 1) cramps. 2) lots of break outs. I have used this mask 3 times in the past week and a half, and if it weren't for the cramps, I would've had no warning that my period was coming. I have rosacea and very dry skin, but this doesn't irritate it at all! I will say, the one downside is that this is a very messy product; it's not easy to clean up. But when products work as well as this one, there are a couple things you're willing to put up with.

              Best Uses

              • Acne-Prone Skin

              Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask:

              I have acne around my chin that never quite goes away, even when it isn't flaring up. I've tried a lot of products, but this mask worked like magic and noticeably improved my skin on the first use! After the second use a few days later, a stranger complimented my skin for the very first time in my life!
              I use Clinique 3-step (face wash, clarifying lotion, moisturizer) after removing the mask, and I think this made the effects even better. Be sure to follow with a moisturizer at the very least so your skin isn't left dry!
