      Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Soap:

      This soap bar dried my skin out so bad, and I used it in the summer. At first, I didn't understand why my skin was itching every night as I laid in bed. I soon realized that my skin was dry because my legs, arms, and chest started flaking. I started breaking out due to my pores being clogged with skin cells. I stopped using the soap bar and I bought the body wash. The body wash revitalized my skin! My skin was back to normal within a few days of using the body wash. I guess my body just can't handle bars of soap because the other Shea Moisture soap bars dried my skin out, too.

                    Does this deep clean or is it more of a gentle soap? I know that when I clean with the African black soap my face is literally squeaky clean when I'm done, is this like that or is it more gentle?

                    Will this product fade freckles? I love my freckles and don't want them to go away but I'm afraid this will make them lighter since they tend to go darker in the summer, but I love it when they're dark
