Q: Does Shea moisture organic black soap reduce pores size and slough off dead skin cells

submitted by Reginald - 7 years ago
  • A: Yes it does reduce pore size and it helps remove some dead skin.

    submitted byDancingqueen2316 - 4 years ago
  • A: I do not know but asssume so as does most other soaps..... I use it in my hair, face, body & it does not dry out my skin !!! No dandruff

    submitted byR2D3 D2 is dead - 7 years ago
  • A: I'm not sure b/c I just use the bar soap on my hands. Most soaps and hand washes itch or break my skin out. When I have an eczema outbreak, it's generally on my hands. The soap works very well on my hands; it calms my skin down and so far, it clears it right away. I have some of their body wash that I haven't tried yet. I don't see anything on the soap package or body wash regarding pores. The bar soap wrapper states "for acne prone skin and body bar". The body wash mentions helping psoriasis, and eczema. Neither mention pores, but heck, it can't hurt to try it and let us know.

Harsh on skin

I do not recommend using this product. It’s super harsh on the skin and strips skin of its natural oils. It made me break out badly. The beads in it was left behind on skin. It didn’t do anything but dry out my skin.

I have been using this soap for over 10 years on both my face and body. It has made a big difference in my breakouts, but can be drying on my face. It smells great and is a fantastic value.

It did its job skincare wise except that it turned my bathtub gray. Points were given for attractive packaging and avant garde look. The bar also cracked.

I absolutely love this face wash! I feel like it has heavily reduced my acne & my face always feels so soft after using it. It’s also very affordable & uses environmentally friendly packaging since it’s not in a big plastic container!

Helped with clearing up some acne breakouts I was having. Seemed to last a good length of time are well for being a bar vs a liquid. Scent was pleasant and not over powering.

Better than liquid face wash

5 out of 5 stars
Thumbs up graphic, would recommend
Piggy - 1 month ago
It lasts forever, I like to cut mine up into small squares and use them little by little. I’ve been using it for about two years and is way better than any liquid face wash. It helps my acne so much while not stripping the skin. It has small exfoliating shea shells in it which is also great! And way less plastic which is a triple win!

If you want to feel like you just rinsed every pore in your face, this really does it. The scent isn’t my favorite, but that’s easy to over look because of the great product. This product is easy to access, as it’s sold in nearly every Target. It lasts a long time also. I feel like this really helped maintain the oiliness in my combination skin

With consistency, this soap bar cleared my pimples. I also use it for double cleansing and it helps remove some leftover makeup! There are better products out there but if you’re on a budget, this one is just right!

I always recommend this product to anyone looking for a quick and easy skincare routine. This product really is effective in getting rid of all those nasty blackheads and papules. Smells like nothing so that’s another major bonus!
