Review | Shea Moisture African Black Soap Problem Skin Facial Mask

Hello readers! It’s the end of my Summer Term, my classes are over and I only have to worry about collecting my photos after they’ve been graded. Time to kick up my feet, dress down in my t-shirt and get the rest I finally deserve!

I also got a new camera for film and will be doing some shooting very soon! Doesn’t that just sound great? I know you’re cheering for me. . .

But before I can get my vacation started, I have a product review for you! It’s from Shea Moisture again, so don’t start groaning and complaining (I hear you people. . .).

This is from the African Black Soap facial line from Shea Moisture. It’s the Problem Skin Facial Mask and it can be found at Target and Ulta Beauty for the same price of $11.99 plus tax.


I got this during a sale of “Buy One, Get One 50%.” So, the price of this mask was cut in half. It was a pretty good deal and I haven’t been using facial masks on my oily skin for a while, so I thought I give this a shot.

Plus there were not a lot of reviews on this particular product, so I decided to give my input.

Well, I used this stuff several times and I can safely say that this mask does the job! It has a creamy application and it dries to a somewhat clear mask on the face. You don’ need a lot, but it would help to add another layer to certain areas that break out the most.

It doesn’t dry out my face and rinsing it off is easy. It also feels a bit tingly due to the sulfur, spearmint and peppermint oils so I wouldn’t recommend it for sensitive skin.

However, it also claims that it refines your skin. I haven’t really seen much of a decrease in blemish scars on my cheeks or if my face appears brighter. The only thing that the mask does is control the oil on my face, particularly my T-Zone. If it does refine my skin, I haven’t really noticed yet.

All in all, this mask is a good deal if you have oily or blemished skin. It might also help for acne too! Just don’t expect it to be groundbreaking in terms of anti-aging or in terms of refining the skin.

But hey, everyone’s skin is different. It may work for some; it may not work so well for others!

Until next time! For now, it’s off to vacation period!
