Too Harsh for Sensitive Skin

I'm a huge fan of masks wether they be sheets, peels or mud I've tried them all. I was super excited to try at the Shea Moisture mud mask seeing that the only other S.M. Product I've used (toner) was much too drying for my skin. Unfortunately, it was the same story for the mask. It left my skin dry, itchy and and rough. I definitely see how this product would be great for blemish-prone skin; it just didn't work for me seeing that my skin is also sensitive. This product was complimentary for me but I won't be buying it full price.

So impressed with this line of products!

I'm 24 and have struggled with acne since my early teens. You name it, I've tried it. I have very sensitive skin, so most cleansers, creams, and retinoids wreak havoc on my skin. I recently tried a retinoid treatment because I was having awful breakouts that wouldn't go away, which was a mistake. My skin was so irritated, dry, and red it just made my acne 100x worse. Being so over all the harsh chemicals, I did some research on natural products for acne. I came across the African black soap line from SheaMoisture, so I thought why not? My skin already looked horrible, so if it didn't work I could just add it to the long list of other products. I bought this mask, the African black bar soap cleanser, and the matching toner. I've been using these products religiously for about a month now, and my skin has totally transformed!!!!!! It looks and feels amazing now, and has almost gotten rid of all my horrible acne. I have never been more pleased with a line of products than these. I use the bar of soap morning and night, the toner in the morning before my makeup, and I use the mask twice a week. If you're on the fence about trying these products, do it because they work and they're all natural! If you have sensitive skin like me, you will be amazed at how gentle these products are. My skin has never looked as good as it does now, and it's all thanks the SheaMoisture!

Best skin of my life

The smell is easy to get used to. After using this every other day I noticed glowy, clear skin in about two weeks. Now I use it every night and my skin is baby soft, 100% clear, my pores are minimized, natural redness is gone and my dark spots have slowly but surely disappeared! This stuff is absolutely magic. I want to stock up so I never run out! When applying I wash my face with my night cleanser and then mostly dry my face and apply the mask immediately. A little goes a long way but I try to build up the mask as much as possible in my “problem areas” (thanks to this mask I don't have problem areas anymore!) and then I wear it for 15 minutes and rinse. I have combination skin, people with sensitive skin should build up their tolerance to this mask because it can have a burning sensation after washing off. I don't recommend wearing it for more than 15 minutes because I don't have sensitive skin at all and I experienced burning when I'd wear it for 30 minutes. Overall it's absolutely worth the buy and I'd give it a shot for a month before saying “it doesn't work”. It is WELL worth the patience.

Worth the money !!!

My face was going through it for past two months , I went to a dermatologist and she prescribe me benzoyl peroxide gel which it made my skin burn and itchy (sensitive skin) . i already had redness of my face and small acne pimple and clogged pores and I keep picking at it it made my face worst. I have large pore on my nose but never on my cheek until I use a black peel off mask which it opened my cheeks pores I was devasted. I try this and i use it almost day bc I have oily skin . It makes my skin feel soft and clean. My pores are less noticeable and my skin clearing up !!! I also use garnier green tea moisturizer after cause I was peeling dead skin off and I also have dry face reacts to everything but so far so good!!

WOW. I am in awe of this product. I was a little hesitant to try it at first granted I have been using the same Neutrogena products (pink grapefruit acne scrub and the rapid clear spot corrector) for 5 years and had satisfactory results. So yes, I wasn't thrilled about changing up my skin care routine once I found something that worked quite well for me. However; I am so glad I tried this product! This is amazing for acne prone skin. I have very oily skin with a few dry patches here and there but I really disregard those and say I have just oily skin. This mask will save your pores! I incorporated it into my skin care routine. They package says use it once a week, but I use it like 3-4 times per week right before I shower. So I do the mask, shower and use my normal face wash, and then the spot corrector once my skin is dry. I am seriously considering ditching my neutrogena products all together and use the rest of the African black soap products! LOVE THIS PRODUCT

i personally don’t have dry skin but i’ve heard the clarifying mud mask from SheaMoisture is good for dry skin. if you have oily skin i suggest the one you have on; the indian healing mask.
