Shea Moisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask

Walgreens sucked me in again and made me purchase something my bank account didn't approve but my desire to try new things have had to have. In my previous post I reviewed the facial care line from Shea Moisture which impressed the heck out of me so of course I had to try this mask too. Granted my skin doesn't fall under the oily skin category, my nose is the only oily part of my face, I wanted to know what the difference was between the two masks. Check out my previous post for a full review on the other line okay ;)

This mud mask caters to acne prone skin. It has no off-putting scent and it spreads on smoothly. You would think from the color it smells like mildew but it doesn't. This clarifying mud mask cost $15.99 and it was in my opinion worth it. Would i purchase it again? No, but let me explain. This mask did not disappoint at all. It claims: This clarifying mask draws out dirt and congestion while helping absorb excess oil and improve the appearance of troubled skin. A proprietary blend of African Black Soap and Raw Shea Butter helps to clarify, balance and soothe blemish-prone skin. Skin feels purified and refreshed. Upon application if feels cool but the moment it starts drying yo experience the tightening of your skin. For all around my face this was too much suction except my nose are. My nose gets oily and i believe this is why that area didn't feel like it just shriveled and died. The rest of my face was screeching for moisture. This is the only reason I would not purchase it again. I only use it on my nose about once every two weeks or as needed should my oils decide to be excessive. 

The key ingredients are: African Black Soap, Tamarind Extract, Tea Tree Oil
Deionized Water, Kaolin Clay, Bentonite Clay, African Black Soap, Simmondia Chinensis (Jojoba) Oil*, Sulfur, Vegetable Emulsifying Wax, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)*, Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, Butyl Avocadate (Avocado), Willow Bark Extract, Gylcerine, Benzyl PCA, Salicylic Acid, Phytosterols, Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B-5), Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Bisabolol (Chamomile), Tea Tree Oil, Dehydroacetic Acid, Allantoin (Comfrey Root Extract), Tamarindus Indica (Tamarind) Extract, Olea Europea(Olive)Oil*, Spearmint Oil, Peppermint Oil, Eucalyptus Oil. 
I definitely recommend this for those with oily skin. This mask will definitely help clean out your pores and balance the oils in your skin.
