    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! :)

        Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Body Wash:

        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.

                  Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Body Wash:

                  The only body wash that nourishes my skin while clearing it. I have very sensitive skin and I'll get bumpy on the back of my thighs arms chest and upper back thigh area. This and the lotion that goes with it are my go to. i've tried everything. Sanitizing razors and never leaving them in the shower, switching razors every time, acne wash, washing my body twice once of which after I rinse my conditioner. That's how much I was, not necessarily over thinking it, but how parinoid I was. Everything. The acne washes dry you out no matter their claims. Dry dead skin = clogged pores and sebum build up = bumpy skin. African black soap and aloe and vitamin e are the answer and this body wash has the perfect balance.

                  Smells like play dough but not a smell u cant handle. I read so many good reviews about this product and was so excited to try it. I use to have really bad back acne and was left with a lot of scars I also still get a few pimples here but they're not that bad. I used this for about a week and everytime i used it i got a bunch of new pimples, on my shoulders, chest, and even on my butt :( I might try it for another week and if it continues to do this then I'll just throw it in the trash.

                    I heard about this from a very well known Utuber. I have dry skin and although it said it was great for oily skin I gave it a try. I loved it. It was moisturizing and kept my skin clear. Sometimes I can get chest acne from sweating at night. This was amazing. My skin felt so good and looked good too. The only concern I have is the smell. It is pretty strong and not the most pleasant smell to me personally. It doesn't linger of the skin so it's not that big of a deal but somethings to consider if you are sensitive to smell like me.

                        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.
