I've been using this product for only a few days, and yet I already see a difference in my skin! Not only do I feel much more fresh but I also noticed my large pores are much less noticeable! I did a lot of research beforehand to find a toner that was alcohol-free, and I was so excited when I learned that this product is paraben-free, phthalate-free, propylene glycol-free, mineral oil-free, sulfate free, and was not tested on animals! This is my first time using Shea Moisture on my skin and I am definitely going to look to them in the future when I need products! This toner covers all of the bases I was looking for and more. I mainly wanted to minimize the appearance of my large pores and unclog the pores on my nose and chin, and within hours of my first use, I noticed improvement in both those areas.
I was a bit worried that it would dry my skin out, smell bad, or make me break out, but this does a great job without having any of those attributes! 5 stars. Very happy :)
I have sensitized, pale, acne-prone skin, and I'm deathly afraid of trying anything new because likelihood is, it will break me out/irritate my tempermental skin type. I've recently decided to try SheaMoisture after MUCH consideration, starting out with their 100% raw shea butter knowing full well of its non-comedogenic, mega nourishing properties. It soothed my inflammation considerably. I then did a lot of research and debated after allowing my skin to chill out for a month to try something of theirs to address my acne. THIS. This product is MARVELOUS! It leaves my skin feeling extra purified after washing with the brand's black soap, re-balances my skin's pH, and reduces redness. I follow up with the problem skin moisturizer from Shea, and my skin loves it. Even just after a couple days, it removed a lot of the acenic swelling and irritation I suffer from. I can tell this is just what I needed in my life for a future of clear, happy skin :) If you've been struggling with problematic skin or you just want to take a cleaner, more natural skin care route, Shea Moisture is your best friend! :)
