Not for everyone ?

By Meera

from Saint Louis

Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Moisturizer:

I used the whole African Black Soap like because I loved the face mask and thought everything else would be too. After doing all the steps and then finally having to apply this, the first day it made my face feel wonderful. I have acne prone, oily to combo skin. My face was so soft, smooth, and radiant. The next day I used this after about 5 minutes after applying my face started to feel weird. It was tingling and then started to itch and even burn a tiny bit. I looked in the mirror and realized my face had red spots from where itching had occurred. So I hurried and rinsed this off and realized that this moisturizer gave my skin a weird reaction and I decided never to use again. But at your own risk. Everyone's skin is different.

        This stuff is like a thick balm. I was hoping it would moisturize my very sensitive skin.....it did at a cost. It gave me the worst breakout ive had in well over a year, after 2 days of use. Will be returning, and hoping my skin goes back to normal asap.

          If you have oily skin, BUY THIS PRODUCT. I have dry skin, but for makeup days, this is my go-to moisturizer. It mattifies as smooths my skin instantly, which helps create an even, long-lasting base for my foundation. The first time I used this after cleansing my face I couldn't believe how soft my skin was! I kept touching my silky cheeks in disbelief over stumbling upon this great beauty find. For my skin type, its not an everyday moisturizer but it does absolute wonders for keeping a full face of makeup on all day. Çannot rave enough!

                    I have been using African black soap and then after have been using witch hazel. Both seem to clean my skin but it feels very dry and hurts after. I get breakouts but my skin is dry except my t-zone , and I also have hyper pigmentation and acne scarring. My question is would my best option be to try this product or the coconut hibiscus spot correcting moisturizer

                      Truthfully, everyone's skin is different, and many factors go into skin improvement including healthy eating, sufficient rest, adequate hydration, sun protection plus managing stress. As part of your skincare routine, African Black Soap products will cleanse, soothe and improve the appearance of your skin, and results will vary depending on all of the above factors.
