        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 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.
