    I use it as my everyday body wash; it smells great and your skin feels great. But make sure you moisturize afterwards! I have oily skin but it dried me up after a couple uses.

      Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Body Wash:

      I have never used a body wash that actually changed how my skin felt....until I tried this product. It is amazing! After just one use I noticed how much smoother and softer my skin felt and I was hooked. I have never gone back to a different bodywash since. It has a pleasant clean smell that isn't overpowering. It wont clash with other scents you use. My skin used to be so dry, but now it's softer than its ever been :)

        Keeps my chest/back acne breakouts under control, not completely clear, but I would say 98% clear.

            I had a hard time deciding which of this particular product to buy, they all smelled nice and had some benefit...finally settled on this one for its properties and fragrance (I do NOT like florals) - have used other products from Africa and had success with them. At first I was prepared not to like this because I discovered after taking it home, that it has beads and I HATE scrubs, but once its on my shower scrunchy I detect no beads. Lathers well, smells great, not expensive. I feel like I have a winner!

                      A:

                      When it comes to Eczema, we have heard some fantastic feedback. This wash helps to calm and soothe the skin. We'd also suggest the African Black Bar Soap.

                      The Bar Soap helps to exfoliate better and can also be used on the face. Ultimately they give the same results.

                    I have really bad discoloration on my body including dark spots and patches. And very oily skin mainly on my face. Would this product help me even out my skin tone and oiliness or should I try the bar soap instead?

                      African Black Soap Body Wash helps to balance oily skin for clearer complexions, but SheaMoisture does not make any claims that it helps with discoloration.
