                          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.
