a little misleading

By Abby

from Alaska

Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Body Lotion:

I usually love Shea moisture's products, it's the only conditioner and lotion i've used for quite some time. I tend to break out on my chest, shoulders and back. And since this claims to clear troubled/acne prone skin, i was so excited. However, i found that this actually made my skin break out MORE than it already was :( i thought maybe my body was just detoxing from it? (Although i've never had this happen with others..) so i continued to use it for about another week and my skin just got worse.. I did love the smell of it though. But this lotion did not work for me. Pretty disappointed cause it did the exact opposite of what it claimed to do? My skin is still recovering from it.

    Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Body Lotion:

    I bought this product on the suggestion of a friend and I'm glad I did! It's a thick lotion, almost like a body butter but not greasy. I've been using it for about a week and already I noticed some improvement on my eczema patches. It's best to use right after a shower and leaves my skin feeling soft.

    I'm taking 1 star off because it is really hard to get out of the bottle. It would be better in a jar. Other than that, great product!

            Extreme Moisture For Cold Weather

            By VooDooLove

            from Tucson,Az

            Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Body Lotion:

            This lotion is very thick but does an excellent job with moisturizing your skin. I've been using this at night after a hot shower and I've had no regrets, there really isn't any smell but that doesn't bother me. Honestly the more natural the better in my opinion but if your looking for a lotion that has perfume or a strong fragrance
            then this isn't for you. Another quality I enjoy about this moisturizer is a little goes a long.

                Out of the SheaMoisture 100% pure oils (shea oil, monoi oil, baoba oil, etc) which one would pair the best with this lotion? I am considering buying one of the pure oils to go along with the lotion.

                  A:

                  The African Black Soap Body Lotion is formulated for blemished, troubled, problematic skin. It is not indicated to specifically treat eczema or psoriasis. If you have a diagnosed skin condition, it is always best to consult your physician regarding the proper at-home products and care.
