          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.

            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!

                  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.

                    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.
