    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.

      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 !!!

        Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap, 8 Ounces:

        I have only used the SheaMoisture African Black Soap bar a couple of times. I did not find it as moisturizing as the SheaMoisture African Black Soap Body Wash so I do not use it to wash my body. I have been using it on my feet with a nail brush and scrubbie. It does a great job and does not dry out my feet. That said, it has a nice, rich lather, a little goes a long way and the scent is light and pleasant. I gave a bar to my husband and he has been very happy with it. He does not have sensitive skin like I do so he has not had any issues with the moisturizing quality.

          Love the fragrance and the effectiveness. My skin is sensitive and irritates easily. These products are the only ones that calm it and leaves that nice clean scent. The larger bar lasts a good time. Will be using this forever.

            This soap is great! I heard so many good things about it that when I started using it, I ditched all other acne treatment products (spot treatments, astringent, etc.) and used only moisturizer with it. Within a week, my break outs were less abundant, and I've been using it for a month with success! While I still have sporadic break outs, the severity and frequency of them is greatly reduced. The only thing that could make this better is if they eliminate all of my acne, but that'd be asking for a miracle. Will repurchase!

            I didnt think I would like this soap but I do. I was using the Seacrets mud soap as a face and body soap before using this and wanted to give it a try. This soap is clearing up some acne I had on my forehead and cheeks with two days of using it just in the morning. my husband even statred using it and he likes it as well. I also bought the coconut and hisbiscus soap and can't wait to burn through this to try it. I love all of shea moistures hair products. I use the African black soap shampoo and it works great for soothing the scalp for us dry and itchy scalp people. I only wish drugstore.com would sell the African black soap facial skincare line as well. Please add more Shea moisture products!!!

                I buy this for my little sister who suffers from extremely dry skin and most soaps just dry her skin out even more and make the problem worse. But THIS soap is AMAZING!!! It soothes her skin so she doesn't itch and moisturizes so well that the dry patches just fade away. Worth EVERY PENNY!

                I've been using this soap for a couple of weeks now and so far so good. Surprisingly it is not as drying as normal soaps and gets your skin squeaky clean I mean you can practically hear your skin squeak. But I know what most will think aww its gonna dry my skin, but in my experience this is not the case. I follow with a light moisturizer (clinique dramtically.) and that's all I need. It has made my face baby soft by improving the overall texture of my skin. I've started to use it over my body in the bath/shower and noticing the same awesome softening and moisture retaining. Glad I got two bars

                  I use this soap to cleanse my face, body and my hair. I sometimes combine it with virgin olive oil and its just lovely. It has oats and shea butter in it which is great for eczema. The african soap part is great for cleansing the skin. It almost feels mint like on the skin but doesn't irritate. I don't like the smell...it doesn't stink but its a bit mint/musky...it leaves black stricks in the tube and sink so be aware. I would 110% buy it again my skin loves it...I also plan to buy the other bars of soap by shea m.

                  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.
