                Please be cautious of this product. I used it and followed up with the moisturizer and received terrible chemical burns on my face. I've never experienced anything like it. It has been an awful experience as my face as if it's in flames over 24 hours later.

                  I'm really pale and I've always had a little rosacea on the sides of my cheeks that has deterred me from going bare-faced anywhere. After using this for about 2-3 weeks I'm SHOOK, so good !

                    Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Toner:

                    I use this quite a bit in the summer when my skin is a lot oilier. It helps clean any residue left over from my cleanser. It is not harsh on the skin. I don't use it as often in the winter since my face tends to be a bit drier, but it works to balance my skin after using a scrub or peel. It does lighten up some spots on my face just a tiny bit.
