This stuff doesn't smell the best, but it works really well for sensitive skin. I used to be a Bath & Body Works junkie until my skin started reacting to their shower gel. This keeps my skin calm and clear.

      I love this body wash. I use it every day in the shower. It is gentle, exfoliating, and has made the skin on my back (which is prone to breakouts) smooth with minimal breakouts. I am very pleased.

        I use this body wash daily. It smells great, leathers well, cleans well, and I have noticed a reduction in my keratosis pilaris when I use it regularly. It is my tried and true. It is pricey, but worth it. I stock up when Shea Moisture is on a bogo sale.

          I usually use this product when I don't have time to do a body scrub as well...cleans, heals, it makes a difference...you just have to try it to see the results! I would just make sure you use the correct loofah. Hope this helps!

              Smells very nice, not "artificial" or fake-fruity like some body washes can be. It's very gentle, cruelty free, and it's BLACK which is so cool.

                  I love this product! It is a life saver during the warmer months for me because I like to wear strapless or spaghetti string top! It smells so great! I went a couple of months without purchasing it and I can honestly say, since I've began using it again, my body acne has cleared. It is also a great moisturizers when trying to shave in the shower. I top it off with the Black Soap lotion! I love the way it makes me feel and smell!

                    This is a holy grail product for me! I went off birth control pills about a year ago, and ever since I have dealt with nonstop acne on my chest and back (for the first time ever). It was constant and NOTHING would get rid of it. Now I use this body wash a few times a week in the shower and I have almost zero acne to speak of! It is truly a miracle product for me; it takes almost no effort and costs so much less than pricey acne products and medications I've tried in the past. The only note I would make is that it is a bit drying, so I only use it on my chest and back, and then I use a different soap for the rest of my body. I absolutely recommend this.
