    Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Body Wash:

    This used to be my favorite body wash. I recently ordered a whole bunch online and when it arrived, I realized that they changed the label and formula. The new formula doesn't have Salicylic Acid, lathers brown foam instead of white, smells different, and did not keep my body acne at bay. After using an entire bottle of the new formula, I have had breakouts sprout up again. Really wish they didn't change the formula and now I'm pretty much going to various stores and hoarding up on the old formula when I can find it. Eventually, when I run out I'm not even sure what I can find to replace it. It was nice because it was moisturizing and kept body acne at bay.

      Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Body Wash:

      I was recommended this product by a friend who swears by it for body acne. Not only did it clear up the breakout I had on my shoulders, but it made my entire body much softer within only a few weeks. I'm not sure why some people are commenting that it's messy... I had no problems at all with it.
      I will say however, that while it doesn't smell bad, it does smell exactly like play dough. The scent is pretty strong in the shower but honestly I could hardly smell it on my skin once I got out.
