    Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Body Wash:

    I have problem areas on my shoulders, back and neck with acne. No matter what products I have tried, I got ZERO results. I was recommended this product by someone working at ULTA and I figured why not give it a shot. It was a great price and something different than what I have been trying. Within a week of using this product.. My skin is CLEAR. Not any acne, anywhere on my body. I haven't worn a tank top by itself in I don't know how long. This product really works for me and I would highly recommend giving it a shot!

    go-to body wash

    Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Body Wash:

    I love this product, it has a light, gentle scent and really helped calm down any body acne. I love to use it to shave and notice a lot less ingrown hairs when I do. I've always heard that African Black Soap can be drying but I didn't notice this at all, in fact I'd say it helped w my occasional eczema. Will continue to buy!

            Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Body Wash:

            Seriously awesome stuff! My skin gets so dry here in the desert and I have had no issues with this drying out my skin. It has kind of an earthy smell that I find quite pleasant. I can't stand perfumy things anyway so that works for me.

            I have painful, cystic acne on my back and I've pretty much given up hope at battling. I'm 36. Anyway, I have used this twice so far over a period of two days and already my backne has started clearing. It's no longer painful and whatever is left has calmed down quite a bit! I am amazed! I ordered with low expectations but was very pleasantly surprised! :)

                I put this on my wash cloth every time I'm in the shower and it's great! I love the smell - some people have mentioned that it smells like play-doh and it does but I like it. I also like it because it doesn't suck the moisture out of your skin. I live in Chicago and every winter my chest would break out because I was always so bundled up but this winter I used this and my chest was clear all winter long. I use it all over my body and not only has it gotten rid of any breakouts on my chest and back, but it has prevented any more from showing up. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT and I will buy it as long as they keep making it.

                      I have had a problem with breakouts on my back and chest since my law enforcement job requires multiple layers of uniform that get quite hot. This stuff has been clearing it up in just days!
                      The scent is not my favourite, I wish it was more pleasant but I'm happy enough with the benefits to continue use.

                        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.
