    Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Body Lotion:

    It was not easy to dispense this thick lotion out of the bottle. It would be better packaged in a jar.
    It Stinks like play doh and baby powder. I can't get past the stench. It also has flower
    extract. I am extremely allergic to everything and pollen so flower extract doesn't work for me.
    I have a hyper sensitive nose and this gave me a headache,i was sneezing and had an itchy body.
    I also have eczema,this is NOT for eczema or extremely sensitive skin!!! NO WAY.
    I will stick to Lucerne eczema relief. NO Fragrance.

      Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Body Lotion:

      I have very dry skin and was looking to find something to help me brave the winter. I loooove SheaMoisture's deep conditioning African soap hair masque, so I figured I might like the lotion. Overall the lotion keeps my skin very moisturized, nothing life changing though. It takes a little bit of effort to work it in even right after a shower. My main issue is that it's such a pain trying to squeeze it from the bottle. I've only been using this product for about a week or two and I need to use both hands to squeeze it out. Even placing the bottle upside down doesn't help, and I can tell the bottle has plenty of lotion inside?? So I just wish this was in a jar instead.

                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.
