Dry skin and blemishes BE GONE !
For starters, this is not an ad! I have been using this product for a few months now and I have found it very helpful for my face. I have oily skin in the T-zone and dry in the rest, so it’s a little tricky finding the right moisturizer. Besides that, I tend to have a lot of marks due to messing around with little pimples here and there. I came across this product by looking at reviews online and decided to test it out. Shea Moisture’s African Black Soap Balancing Moisturizer has helped me a lot so far. Check out the full review and benefits below!
WARNING: The cream is very thick so not much is needed to apply. I do soak be face though since I use it before bed.
The Key ingredients:
- African Black Soap:
“African black soap contains shea butter, which moisturizes skin but doesn’t clog pores. Shea butter gives the soap some UV-protection properties, but not enough to replace your usual sunscreen. According to Organic Spa Magazine, the soap may fade skin discoloration and dark spots. The soap cleanses gently, so it’s ideal for people with rosacea, rashes, dryness and other skin conditions. African black soap contains plantain extract, which has antibacterial properties that may help treat acne breakouts. Some people use the soap as a shampoo or mild makeup remover.”-Live Strong
- Tamarind Extract:
“Great for radiant skin. Tamarind juice is an excellent option when it comes to skin care. It has potential to treat burns and edema due to the compounds found in them. Incorporating tamarind in any form to your diet can help alleviate acne or chicken pox scars leaving your skin clear and radiant. Moreover, the juice contains fiber, alpha hydroxyl, enzymes, fiber, vitamin B and vitamin C that are necessary to rejuvenate dead skin cells and tissues.”- Natural Food Series
- Tea Tree Oil:
“Tea tree oil’s healing properties have made it a key ingredient in facial skin-care products. According to “Milady’s Skin Care and Cosmetics Ingredients Dictionary,” the plant exhibits antimicrobial activity towards a wide variety of bacteria, making it ideal for acne-prone skin and skin disorders. The oil is known to combat and soothe psoriasis, eczema, redness and dermatitis. It is also beneficial to troubled complexions and congested skin, thanks to its low toxicity and its ability to treat without irritating the epidermis.”- Live Strong
