I use this soap twice daily and it has cleared my skin better than anything I have ever used. In early 2012 I began having cystic acne rather than simple acne vulgaris. I struggled and had the hardest time covering it. I had cystic acne all over my jawline and neck. I was left with awful, hard to cover scars. During a search, I came across a single article about this soap. At my wits end, I found in my local store and gave it a try in November '12. In two months my cystic acne cleared up and the scars began to fade. It is now March '13 and I my skin looks better than has in years. I still have small, quick clearing breakouts (generally hormonal) but nothing like I experienced last year. This soap saved my skin and my sanity. I even went completely make-up free today - something I never would have done before.

The only slight downside is that it is slightly drying. To combat this, I use Simple Light Hydrating Moisturizer. It's light without being greasy, but enough to cover make you forget about the dryness.

I highly recommend this to everyone I know with skin conditions.

This soap leaves your bath/shower a mess, be prepared to scrub your shower daily. For a natural, sulfate free soap I do like the soap but for my skin type (very dry flaky skin year round) this soap did not aide in moisturizing my skin more. I will try other scents of this brand and possibly add a Shea Moisture lotion to see if it helps. the scent isn't bad but it reminds me of Play-doh lol.

    My teenage daughter loves this soap. She has a great complexion, with an occasional breakout, and this is the only soap she'll use on her face (she also uses it on her body in the shower).

      Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap, 8 Ounces:

      I bought this soap for my daughter and she absolutely LOVES it. It not only cleans and moisturizes her skin but it also does a great job at reducing her dark spots. Her skin cleared up after only two weeks of daily use. I highly recommend this product.

          I like this soap, but much to my surprise it stains a white wash cloth. Did not wash out in washing machine. A second wash lightened it. I just won't use it again with white. I enjoy several products from the SheaMositure line.

              I use this product to wash my make-up brushes, I bought it to clean my beauty blender (due to a reference from youtube) but I haven't used it for that yet. It does a great job for cleaning my brushes, it removes everything and leaves the hairs super soft, I have an older white haired brush that is stained from my blushes and it took a lot of the stain out, is not as noticeable, before this I was using the compact brush soap from Benjabelle, this one is much better in my opinion and cheaper and bigger. I like the smell of it, it is a bit strong but I like it, I don't mind it at all. I can't think of anything bad, after I use it I let it try and then I store it in a plastic container.

                  The soap is good, but it's not the african soap I expected.
                  It has more regular soap and less of the african ash, etc contents.
                  I enjoy it, but I need to buy the real stuff now.

                  This soap smells like bananas, and it feels nice when you use it in the shower, but the bar releases too much ink-like liquid which turned me off.The bar is large so I cut it in half (length-wise) but the soap doesn't last long.

                    I use this soap everyday, twice a day, morning and nighttime. I love the smell, I love how it don't dry out my skin and it don't over-moisturizer because I do have oily skin. This has reduce my acne. I think people who is suffering with skin problem should try this soap or any other black soap it has great benefits for your skin and plus its cheap just five bucks !!!

                    SheaMoisture African Black Soap

                     – Choosing the same skin care products over and over again is a great idea if you find that they are doing a great job of keeping your skin healthy, soft, and radiant with natural beauty. When you discover that your products are no longer performing as well, it might be time to reassess your skin's condition as well as the products you select.

                    Clearing Up Blemish-Prone Skin



                    Addressing blemish-prone skin is often a difficult albeit necessary task. Not only do you need to find a formula that helps to clear up oils, but you also need to find one that does so without entirely stripping your skin of essential moisture. SheaMoisture African Black Soap offers all-natural cleansing. Suitable for the face, hands and body, this soap provides gentle yet effective cleansing of the skin through a formula created by combining plantain peels, tamarind extract, and palm ash. Historically, Black African Soap has been used for blemish-prone skin as well as symptoms associated with issues such as eczema and psoriasis. The soap is a long-standing tradition in West African nations where various communities created their own secret recipes in order to address common skin concerns. The benefits of this traditional soap can now be enjoyed by everyone.

                    Choosing Natural Skin Care Formulas



                    If you are interested in going green with your beauty regimen, African Black Soap offers a great way to address your concerns with nourishing, natural ingredients. SheaMoisture offers a wide variety of botanical-rich formulas for everyday use.
