    Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Body Lotion:

    This is my favorite lotion, especially in the winter time. It's great for dry skin. You don't need much, a little goes a long way. It is very thick but it keeps my hands moisturized, even after washing them several times throughout the day.

    This lotion is very thick but surprisingly absorbs well after a few minutes. I have combination skin and suffer from eczema, it doesn't clog my pores and has kept itchy breakouts away.

        This stuff is as close as I've gotten to relief similar to a prescribed medicated cream. I'm prone to raised itchy eczema plaques and this stuff helps calm the itch and flatter those plaques, good product

          Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Body Lotion:

          I use many Shea Moisture products and have used many of their body lotions. Each one smells amazing and makes my skin amazing, but the African Black Soap Lotion takes it a level above amazing for me and my skin just as their African Black Soap Body Wash does that I have also reviewed. I have extremely dry sensitive skin and also suffer from eczema at times, this body lotion helps keep it at bay. It is so gentle I will even use it to moisturize my face after cleansing (a little goes a long way). The only reason I rated this a four out of five stars is because due to the product being so thick it is often times difficult to dispense from the bottle, but this product is so good I don't care. I remove the cap all together and shake and squeeze the bottle as much as I can to get what I need. I recommend this brand to my family, closest friends and even strangers... seriously! I found this brand about seven years ago and have been a very happy customer ever since.

            Best Uses

              Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Body Lotion:

              I really enjoyed using this lotion, but I think the product is too thick to be sold in the bottle it is. If this product was sold in a jar instead it would be just perfect because the product, while does not feel heavy on the skin, is very thick and is somewhat difficult to squeeze out of the bottle especially when you you start to run out.

              Other than the bottle it comes in, this is a WONDERFUL PRODUCT and I WILL BUY AGAIN
