Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great soap! This soap is amazing..I've repurchased twice and that says something. I have tried every kind of face soap there is from drugstore to high end and nothing compares. I can't say enough about the African black soap! My face has cleared up and no redness! People compliment my complexion all the time about how good it looks. Thanks Shea Moisture!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Changing Never has anything cleared my face up so fast, this was basically a miracle worker for me. The soap made my skin so soft and cleared problem spots I've had for awhile. I've used everything you could thing of for acne. This soap is definitely a life changer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Used twice and my face became a monster. I bought this product yesterday from walmart and i thought that it would help with my skin issues like i've heard online. This was a disaster and wasted what little money i had. This is not a product for oily acne-prone skin. My oiliest areas were always my nose and chin, then the next morning after using it twice, my cheeks were bright red ( i do not have sensitive skin) and my pores had bumps and were enlargened (like the appearance of a mosquito bite). And my forehead increased with tiny bumps and every bit of texure was brought out. I wanted to cry. This was my FIRST and LAST time buying from this brand. I wish i could have my money back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Second Time Around I used this product last night & tonight & both times it gave me an itchy feeling all over my face. :/// I kept my same regiment of 100% aloe vera as a toner & Full of Grace serum from Lush following the use of the blk soap. But I went through a whole bar about a year & a half ago on my body & face & didn't get this feeling. Unfortunately, I'll be returning it & returning to my burts bees ( which I set aside or trying out the blk soap) or Cetephil products, which will be my first time trying. xO.

Why did this soap make my face feel so dry & it probably made me break out More .? 

Asked by: lizeth28
Hi Lizeth, Our African Black Soap Bar Soap is a clarifying soap. It will balance the skin by removing excess oils and impurities from pores. With a clarifying soap, as it draws out those toxins from the pores, those toxins may irritate the skin. This is normal as it is cleansing the skin and removing those impurities. After a few washes, the pores should be cleaner and your skin will no longer have irritation as those same toxins will have been removed.

I was wondering if there's a difference between this soap & the soap meant for acne & troubled skin. The ingredients are the same for both of the soaps, so I was confused on why they have different labels. Is it okay to use this on combo & troubled skin?

Asked by: Ariel
Hi Ariel, There is no difference between the African Black Soap Bar Soap and the African Black Soap Acne Prone Face & Body Bar. The 8oz is the full size and the 3.5oz is better suited for facial cleansing because of its size. This is great for combo and troubled skin as it will balance the complexion, prevent breakouts, and soothe irritation.

I have dry skin is it advisable to use soap? Or the soap is not for my skin type? What kind of skin is it for?

Asked by: Pao_6516
I noticed it dried me out the tinest bit (I have drier skin), but I just put a very small amount coconut oil on afterwards. It works like a dream if you are using it for acne

Is the soap supposed to leave you with a burning feeling after using it?

Asked by: Sheamoistureuser
It can, but don't worry. It should go away after a bit. It shouldn't hurt, but you may want to consult your physician just in case.
