    Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Body Lotion:

    I started using Sheamoisture at the suggestion of a friend. I normally NEVER use moisturizers on my body because they either feel greasy and tacky, or they smell like perfume. Sheamoisture has become one that I use every single day. My skin smells great and feel soft supple, not at all greasy. I have purchase every available scent, but the African Black Soap Lotion is one of my faves. I bought 3 bottles of it.

    • Smells Great

    Cons

    • Doesn't Absorb Well
    • Sticky
    • Too Greasy or Heavy

    Best Uses

      Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Body Lotion:

      I love the soap version, so thought I'd try the lotion to compliment it. Its a no go. It's so thick and just sits on top of the skin, It didn't absorb at all. It's really sticky and feels like I had a soap residue on my skin. There is no way I could walk around all day with this stuff on my body.

        Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Body Lotion:

        My sister was the one that noticed how great my legs looked. I used to have bumps on the top of my thighs, and ever since using this lotion I don't have that problem anymore. I also use the SheaMoisture Body Oil right after I get out of the shower (before I dry off), then I use this lotion. This lotion is pretty thick, I usually have to unscrew the cap to even get any out. I'm almost done with my first bottle & I would definitely buy again!

                Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Body Lotion:

                I have used this product for a few years now bc its sooooo thick and highly moisturizing! I am also sensitive to smells but this has a 'powdery' smell to it that doesn't trigger my migraines. The smell dissipates to below the radar after a few minutes. I have found that bc it's sooooo thick I take the cap off the bottle and squeeze it out and I get a better result - also turning it upside down and tapping on the counter helps too - it also has ingredients I can pronounce and knowing I'm slathering this all over my body makes me feel good rather than sick

                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.

                    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.
