Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works! I have been using this for about a year now and I love it! It is very mild on the skin, but you feel clean and fresh after using it. It is also gentle enough to use on my face which is very sensitive to products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Significantly reduces blemishes on my combo skin I have blemish-prone problem skin, and I've used this for years after a friend's recommendation. It's become part of a regiment that has helped send skin that has gone through several moderate phases of acne into remission. I've noticed an immediate difference (for the worse) whenever I've tried other brands, and it's safe to say I'm never going back! SKIN TYPE: oily/normal combination. I can't speak to whether it may irritate/chafe dry skin types.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not my cup of tea I would like to start by specifying that I have extremely oily, acne-prone skin. After a good period of time with clear skin, I started breaking out recently and decided to give this bar a try after hearing a lot of great reviews about the effects of African Black Soap on acne. Using this bar of soap in combination with the toner almost completely CLEARED my body acne on my chest/back so I would recommend it for that. However, I've been using this bar with the matching toner/moisturizer on my face for a month now and my skin has not looked worse in years. My skin is so badly broken out that I have pimple in places I used to never get acne in. I don't know what is in the ingredients of this bar that sets it apart from "traditional" black soap but this simply did not work for me and I am hesitant in even trying legitimate black soap after this experience.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I've been using this for years but it does not.. My skin has never been a struggle for me, until I got into 8th grade. I battled with extreme breakouts for about month, until my mother reccomend I use the Shea Moisture African Black Soap. It worked wonders in a matter of a week. The size of my pimples minimized a large amount and my skin felt squeaky clean. Ever since I've been using for about 3 years. Now I'm in high school, and I began to have problems with my skin, which is worse. The African black soap has not come to my rescue this time. I'm not sure if they are lazy with how they make the soap now or if my skin is tired of the soap, but I wouldn't think so since it has always worked so well. Now I see what people mean by shea moisture not being the same

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Burned skin This soap is the cheap version of the real African black soap. After using the soap, my skin was more dry than It ever should be i started peeing and getting red bumps all over my forehead than later on that day i realize the soap had burned my skin on my forehead causing it to scar and taking over a month to recover. This was over a year ago and I️m still struggling with my forehead too this day. Very upset with this product not washing ur face does u better than washing it with this

Rated 1 out of 5 by from ingredients on actual bar received totally differ Beware, I received my bar today and it no longer seems to be made with the short list of honest ingredients shown in the advertised product picture. Shea butter and most of the other ingredients are now listed after "fragrance". See my photo for the current ingredient list. I will not be buying SheaMoisture again! Someone had warned that they were bought out by a big company (apparently Sundial, from my package) but the purchaser didn't say what the new ingredients were. At least with the actual ingredients purchasers aren't duped or at least knowingly purchase this product knowing what they can expect to receive.

Is the soap mild enough to be used as a facial cleanser

My nose and cheek area is very oily. It shines all the time.
Asked by: Diddy
Hi Diddy- Our smaller bar soaps are facial bar soaps. However, you can also use the larger body bar soap on your face as our soap is mild. However, we always recommend that you do a patch test. Use the soap on a small area of your face. Wait 24 hours to make sure that there is no irritation or reaction. The soap is great for calming and clarifying problem skin with african black soap ingredients and oats. It also conditions and soothes skin with shea butter.
