            I have been using this soap for 2 months . I have seen improvements in my skins texture and with breakouts. The soap drys up the acne but leaves my skin moisturized and fine lines softer. Great for sensitive skin and people pron to eczema. I love the smell of the soap and the size of the bar last a long time. Great product and reasonable priced.

                              Some users may experience a purging period. Also, we advise to lather the bar soap on your hands before applying to the face. Since SheaMoisture uses natural and potent ingredients within their products, it may irritate the skin if rubbed on directly. Not all products work the same for everyone; it may take a little while for your skin to adjust, so give about 3-4 weeks for best results.
