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

submitted by Reginald - 6 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 - 6 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.

    submitted byjrericks - 6 years ago
  • A: Yes it does reduce pore size and it helps remove some dead skin.

Q: I was wondering when can you use this soap. Like can you use it in the morning and at night or does it have to be only at one time. And if i did use it twice is that okay for my skin?

submitted by Qamar - 4 years ago
  • A: This product is safe to use twice a day. We suggest performing a patch test before use in order to rule out any allergies or irritation.

I've been dealing with hormonal acne, which has caused me to have really huge and noticeable dark spots. It was not until recently that my aunt told me that I should try the African soap made by Shea Moisture and that I should use it everyday and night for at least a week. Let me tell ya'll It's only been 3 days and I already see a difference. My skin is lighter and my dark spots are fading and you know it's serious when your grandmother complements you on your skin.

I absolutely love this product! My skin tends to get oily during winter and i would breakout so much and I struggled to find a good face cleanser that actually helped with acne and scarring and the moment i used this i started seeing results within weeks I’ve never found a product that worked this good in so long definitely recommend if anyone struggles with oily skin try this product out it as well works best with the moisturizer “SheaMoisture Balancing Moisturizer” after washing it with the soap.:)

My husband uses this to prevent back breakouts from sweating at the gym. It’s the only thing that worked to unclog the pores and get rid of breakouts. Fantastic product and so affordable.

Many people raved about this on social media so I decided to test it out. I did not see a huge change in my skin while using this product (and started using something else a few months after instead that did show a difference). I will say the small changes I did see were nice, and for the price it is a decent product but not something that I would necessarily recommend on the fly to someone.

I’ve tried so many body soaps/washes and this is the BEST body soap. I workout a lot so I need something that is going to help me feel clean and this soap does that. I used to get a few breakouts on my back from my sports bra and ever since I switched to this soap I haven’t had any breakouts!

This is the only thing I use to wash my face. A con would be when I use it directly on my face, there are things in the soap that are kind of harsh on the skin. Other than that it's great, makes me feel clean, has no strong smell just a light smell that isn't bothersome, and is cheap. I don't know if this is real African Black soap, but it gets the job done. I hear many stories of this GREATLY improving skin.

Not authentic

This is not African black soap. It’s just soap that’s black. There’s nothing remotely similar about this and ACTUAL black soap. The texture, color, and every thing about this product is wrong. It should not be named African black soap because that’s not what it is. I’m not surprised given the brand.

What I liked about this soap is it’s thickness. Thsi soap cleans thoroughly and the scent is light. Your face definitely feels hydrated afterward. I definitely recommend it for those who need a boost of H2O.

This is so awesome. It's no secret that I have acne-prone skin, and acne hurts. The product is gentle on my skin, smells great, and works well with my face wash spin brush. In addition to being affordable, it helps clear my skin and keep it soft. The only complaint I have is that the bar has a rough texture, which is why I use my spin brush.

This is a favorite of mine. It cleans well and helps exfoliate. It works wonders for acne regardless of where it is. It's very gentle in sensitive areas too. And it's very affordable which is always a plus. It's all around just awesome.
