Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY Please do not buy if you’ve sensitive and acne prone skin. My face is itchy and hurting so bad all irritated. I should have not bought it. I knew it about the fragrance, they say essential oils blend but certainly a lie. Fake black soap. Hope my comment won’t be deleted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING I’m a 14 year old female and I’ve had bad acne for three years; ever since 5th/6th grade. I got mad fun of for it always. I never could find a product that completely cleared my face and stayed clear. This product did both. I want to thank y’all for this soap because this means so much to me; having clear skin finally. And the thing is , I’ve only had this bar for 2 weeks.. my face is completely cleared. ❤️❤️ I totally 100% recommend it !

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did NOT work for me I’ve heard good things about this in the past and decided to try it on my sensitive and acne-prone skin. All this did was make my skin extremely dry and I got bad acne in places I never got acne before. For example, my problem areas were my lower cheeks and jawline and I now have heavy breakouts on my forehead and nose! I haven’t had acne there since middle school which was about 15 years ago. I’m glad this was inexpensive because I will not continue using this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from YOU WILL BE AMAZED, I PROMISE. I have struggled with acne for about 10 years now. I have tried many different methods from the most expensive stuff to the cheapest and everything in between that I could find. My dad's wife is a huge natural remedy lover and has always encouraged me to try that route. Because I have used so many products, even ones from the dermatologist, my skin literally rejects it and causes really bad irritation. I always have a bad problem with picking at my skin and popping anything that shows up, which of course makes everything 10x worse. I recently saw this at the store and after reading a couple reviews, I thought why not? Its very inexpensive and its natural so it will keep me on track with trying this route. I bought it on Saturday 10/27/18 and today is 10/31/18... I CAN NOT BELIEVE WHAT I AM SEEING. My skin is HEALING and I haven't barely had a single new pimple show up! I unfortunately don't have any pictures to show the progress but believe me. This is working. This is the only thing I am using for a face wash and I use coconut oil for moisturizer. (again, keeping it all natural right now) I don't have anything bad to say about this stuff at all and it is actually doing a lot for my acne. If you have struggled like I have and are ready to peel your face off in frustration. Try this, only use this to wash and exfoliate and coconut oil to moisturize. YOU WILL BE AMAZED, I PROMISE.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from They changed the ingredients! This used to be my favorite soap - I've used it every day for years and it cleared my the acne on my back. When the original owners of Shea Moisture sold the company many of the products changed. This soap used to have very limited ingredients and it's totally changed and it's terrible now.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Changed their formula! I have been using this soap for about 4 years. It cleared up my skin immensely. I also have sensitive skin and it was never once irritated or dried out. The bars would last for about a year (even with everyday use!). But when I purchased my most recent bar, I was horrified when my skin started burning and my face broke out in a rash. I did some internet research and found out they did in fact change the ingredients. I'm afraid to try any other Shea Moisture products for fear that they contain the same new irritants. Not buying this again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from OUCH This made my skin break out into a rash because I got burned. My skin looked worse after I used it. I tried EVERYTHING to stop the burning and dryness. But their 100% pure Shea butter is a life saver. It made my skin feel so much better!! The soap is awful though. I would like a refund.

Is purging normal when you first begin using this product? I have been using it once a day at bed time everyday for about a month, and the first week my skin looked better, but now I am breaking out like crazy. Shoud I stop using or start using less?

Asked by: Kt1234
Hi Kt1234, When using a clarifying soap, it will help remove toxins and dirt from deep into pores. This will raise those toxins for you to wash away. As those toxins rise to the top of the skin to be rinsed away, the user may see some irritation but this is normal. As they are washed away, and the pores are much cleaner, the user will not see those same reactions and see clearer, cleaner skin.

Is there any fragrance in the part of ingredient labeled as "African Black Soap Base"? We need to avoid synthetic fragrances completely 

Asked by: Jess
Our products do not use synthetic fragrance, our products are scented with our proprietary essential oil blends. Regulations cause us to label this as Fragrance or Parfum on some labels, we hope this helps!
