Shea moisture acne kit review: everything you need to fight breakouts
This skincare set from Shea Moisture contains four of the brand’s most popular skin care products for tackling breakouts. The African Black Soap Clarifying Facial Bundle includes a clarifying mud mask and moisturizer that can be used as a spot treatment or as a daily face cream to soothe redness and balance oily skin.
Mud masks are often a staple for people with oily or acne-prone skin because they can help to draw impurities and excess oils out of the skin. This Shea Moisture mud mask is designed to do just that and also includes some other buzzy skincare ingredients like Tea Tree Oil, which has anti-microbial properties and Tamarind Extract which is a natural skin exfoliant.
Shea Moisture’s moisturizer also features some soothing ingredients for redness-prone skin like raw shea butter and Matcha green tea. The latter is rich in epigallocatechin gallate, or EGCG for short, which is a potent antioxidant that can help to neutralize free radicals and protect the skin from UV damage.
The Shea Moisture moisturizer is also packed with pre- and probiotics, which are good for the skin because they work to balance the microbiome. This is important because if there are more bad bacteria than good bacteria in the skin, it can lead to irritation and bumpy or uneven skin texture.
The Shea Moisture acne kit is available for purchase on the company’s website and through various third party online retailers including Amazon, Target, Walmart and Ulta. Shea Moisture is a cruelty-free beauty brand that has been owned by the same family for over 100 years and uses fair-trade and organic ingredients whenever possible. They are a PETA Beauty Without Bunnies member and do not test their products on animals.
