Rated 1 out of 5 by from don’t know what happened it felt really nice when i was putting it on, i waited ten minutes like it said too, and i when i took it off, my face was completely red. don’t know why, i’m not allergic to anything, but it didn’t go away for the rest of the day...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why change a good thing? This used to be my absolutely favorite mask. My skin always felt supple, soft, and hydrated for several days after using it. Well I noticed I was running low on my old jar (this stuff lasts a long time) and I bought a new jar so I never have to be without it. I noticed that the consistency and smell are different so compared both jars. I was heartbroken when I noticed the MAJOR difference in ingredients. This mask used to work great and I never experienced negative side effects, I can’t say that anymore...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from TRASH!! I literally just bought this today I wasn’t having any skin problems really just a few minor dark marks and I wanted something to just clean my pores. I don’t believe this did anything at all for my skin but make it red AF. I had high hopes for this product because I really loved the black soap. I do have combination skin. My face now feels like rubber and is red. THIS IS NOT IT !!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not purchase - skin redness after use I have never had any past issues with this brand. I applied the product as instructed, but I noticed that I had a red outline of where I placed the product after washing it all off. It looks like I have been sunburned. I do not have very sensitive skin so I am disappointed with this product. There needs to be a recall with this brand as it seems like I am not the only one experiencing this issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Facial transformation This thing transformed my face. It got rid of dark spots that I had and textured skin. I use it maybe three times a week and leave it on for 45-1 hour. I get so many compliments on my skin and people think that I’m wearing makeup when my skin has just been transformed by this amazing product. And I also love how you only need to use a thin layer. Absolutely love.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible I am sensitive when it comes to products but it’s never been so bad. I put it on and it smelt like play dough. When I took the mask off it left my skin super irritated and burning. Hurts to touch my face a day after.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from terrible, it burns. i used this mud mask the day i got it and had 0 problems, it helped my skin and made it clearer over the past few days. i used it again just over 45 minutes ago, kept it on until dry (10-15 minutes) and rinsed it off. i noticed i had a red outline from where the face mask was. you couldn’t see it on my eyes or lips but on my cheeks and the majority of my face. i let it sit for 5 minutes thinking the redness would go away but it didn’t. my skin still has throw sun burn like tint to it and it doesn’t seem to be going away.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Please go back to original ingredients! :( This face mask was the best thing to ever happen to my skin. It was my all time favorite face mask since it wasn’t drying and left my face feeling super clear, soft, and bouncy. I recently finished my tub and purchased a new one at Walgreens. I put it on and it was horrible. It dryed like cement on my face and did nothing for my skin. I then realized that the formula had been changed. Still having hope in my favorite mask, I returned the Walgreens tub and ordered on this website in hopes that Walgreens recurved a bad batch... same results from the original vendor. I am so disappointed and I am BEGGING SheaMositure to return to their original face mask formula!!! I hope they listen to the many reviews stating this problem.

Was there a recent formula change? I’ve been using this product 2x a week for more than a year. I just bought a new jar and when I used it my face came out red like a sunburn! I am really disappointed because I have always loved this product.

Any changes you see to our ingredient lists have been done to more closely align with different labeling requirements - not because of formulation changes.

I loved the mask the first time, but now my skin is red afterwards. I have used it weekly on clean skin, not exfoliating beforehand. I don’t have sensitive skin - no reactions to products in my 45 years.  What ingredients in this may be causing redness?

Why is it burning? 

Asked by: MSpencer
Whenever you're trying a new product, we always recommend performing a patch test on a small portion of your leg or arm to test for any allergic reactions that may occur as a result of an allergy to one or more of the ingredients. Since we use natural ingredients, allergies can occur. We have seen this before and we have several tips on how to use these masks properly. It should definitely be applied to clean skin, we have just seen that a few of our community members have been washing with it multiple times or exfoliating prior to applying the Mask. Making their skin extra sensitive. Please do not exfoliate and/or apply any similar product before applying this mask. We hope these tips help out. If not, we highly suggest visiting a dermatologist to get tested for allergies to any of the ingredients in this product as this is likely the case.

I've had mine stored for three years because I forgot about it. Can I use it now? It was sealed properly this whole time 

Asked by: Sammy
Hi Sammy, We recommend doing a patch test to rule out any irritations. Once you open the product, see if the scent is good or bad. If good, do a patch test. If you have any irritations from the product, do not use the product.

Got sample packet- it was thick, light grey, actual clay like. I loved it & wanted to purchase the full jar. I did but it was completely different texture/ color- thin, watery, not clay like, dark grey, didn’t dry, didn’t work the same? what gives??

Asked by: Melissa
Hi Melissa, We are switching form Vulcanus Kaolin Clay (the darker clay) to White Kaolin Clay (the whiter clay). The Mud Masks in the jars will be matching the ones in the packets once the tubs have sold out of the previous clay. The Vulcanus Kaolin Clay worked well but after feedback, users preferred White Kaolin Clay.
