      Comments about SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Bar Soap:

      I use this product on both my face and body and it's very effective yet gentle. I initially experienced some irritation on my face but that stopped within the first couple uses. The bar is very large so I cut it into four pieces. Also, for my body I create a lather using a loofa.

          Comments about SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Bar Soap:

          This soap was my holy grail. BUT Sheamoisture has been quietly changing all the formulas. Coconut oil is no longer the 1st ingredients, is sodium palmatefolliwed by a bunch of other sodium _____.

          This soap bar now leave a greasy film on my body just like other SM bars iedragons blood, water mint and Curaçao that are next to garbage

          They are skimping on the quality of their products
          I went to return it and the clerk at ulta was surprised it was Changed as they werent notified and the sku was the same.

          They are taking advantage of the goodwill of their returning customers

          Sorry for the erratic sentences, im very upset that my trust in this company was taken advantage of by this very company

          They may be trying to save money by short changing their customer but ultimately, they lost a once loyal lifetime customer

            SM quietly changed formulas, ulta still lists old ingredient

            Comments about SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Bar Soap:

            Check the ingredients, coconut oil used to be the first ingredients, now its sodium palmate followed by a list of other sodiums
            This new soap is awful, leaves a filmy residue and a tight feeling on skin but it lathers more.
            The old soap washed clean and lathered fine.
            Sheamoisture is diluting all their formulas. Presumably to save money. And now their products are subpar. And they've lost my business.

              Comments about SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Bar Soap:

              This bar of soap seems to change the further you wear into it. I am on my third bar of the coconut hibiscus with mushroom. The bar starts out huge, smells faintly of playdough to no smell at all and lathers up into a fantastic milky application. Then when you are on maybe your 8th use, you wear down to the pretty scent and the coconut exfoliators, and this stage is less milky. I would describe the wear down process like a tootsie pop. It is a fun product and it cleans very well. My skin is sensitive and I have had no problems with this product. The cleaning is not harsh and I love the way my skin feels after I get out of the shower, so I keep buying this bar again and again. I will advise that bar is really big, and would fit best in larger sized hands. If you have small hands, you might find it difficult to hold.

                Comments about SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Bar Soap:

                After numerous searches and trials and wasted money looking for a bar of soap to cleanse with; had been a ridiculous headache, asking myself why does everything have fragrance?? Even soap that is unscented - stinks! This type of soap I am reviewing is the only type of soap that is the most tolerable. If you or anyone you know that has any such sensitivities as I do with fragrance/cologne/perfume/dryer sheets, which mostly all has synthetic stink added to it, this is a good bar of soap to try. Make sure you get the Coconut & Hibiscus though, as there are other big organic bars and they all stink! Even the beauty salon was thin pickens, for non fragrant hair products that is. This soap is used mainly in the shower and just to wash hands after using the rest room. I also have a bar in the kitchen to clean up for dinner as well. Clean hands is a must! It is a big bar of soap so it will last a long time; won't dissolve quickly; just make sure you hold on tight or use a thin rag to wrap around it. It does have particles in the soap, but just don't push down hard on the skin and they won't hurt; they will however eventually fall off and then rinse away in your shower. It's organic soap, what do you expect? It does have a play doh type of smell, but sometimes smells fishy too. I'm not sure why that is, yet once you dry off and add some mild lotion, that all goes away anyhow. And I won't smell like some perfumed sprayed flower or some overkilled mens aftershave, which is disgusting either way! I think many people don't realize that what may smell good to them is not so to others, but we do live in a world where many people don't care about the other person and that is sad!

                      We do not carry any products that are made to specifically "lighten" skin tone. However, our Coconut & Hibiscus Even Skin Tone Créme is a great option we think you'll enjoy that aids in evening out skin tone. You can also use this Product on your underarms.
