LOVE this line. This is one of the few black-owned lines you'll find anywhere, and not only is that super cool, the products are great. There's something for everyone, and the soaps are all natural without sodium tallowate, which is the primary ingredient in most bar soaps AND made from beef fat.

Nice, huh? That bar of ivory is beef fat leftover after processing. I'm not complaining b/c at least if we're gonna eat beef, I think we should not waste anything, but still...SHEA MOISTURE ROCKS! Go try it!

this product has saved me so much!! I have never written a review so to actually be writing one for this soap means I love it!! i have been using this soap for a month and has cleared my skin soooo much in so little time. when i first got it I had such bad acne, all over my cheeks and jaw since that's my problem area. In just a week or 2, i started seeing results and over that time my skin has improved. I actually feel good enough to go out with no makeup now. It's also good for blemishes since i have that and it's slowly all fading away. It is a bit drying but i think it's all worth it. as long as you use a good moisturizer you're all good. this is my holy grail and recommend this!

this product doesn't help my skin that much but I still use it about once a week (I don't like using it everyday) I cut it in half and use one half on my face and the other to clean my makeup brushes and sponges. I love it for cleaning it smells Wonderful and cleans my sponges so well no dryness either

I really wanted to love this product! It smells wonderful but it dried and broke out my skin. I though it was due to the "purging" phase but after months of "purging" I had to let it go.

I use this soap as an all over body soap during summer months. I find that it's too drying to use on my face or during the dry winter months. I tend to get a few breakouts across my back during warm weather and this soap helps to prevent them. The only draw backs I've found are that it makes my shower very slippery and I wish it came in a smaller bar.

After reading glowing reviews for oily/acne prone skin, I decided to give this a go. I had previously been using the Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask which initially cleared up my acne years ago but now has just plateaued in effectiveness.
I cut a slice of the chunk and have been storing the small slice in a mini tupperware container. I have been using this morning and night, however trying to only wash at night because IT'S SO DRYING. Maybe I use a lot of product. But this product while initially drying up some of my breakouts has created new ones with how dry it has made my skin.
I am thinking of switching from Cetaphil face lotion to a facial oil to see if this makes a difference. But i'm kind of unimpressed with this so far. However, I am did JUST start using this on my back since I have a few pimples from sweaty gym clothes (glamorous, I know). I will make an update on this soon. But for now, only two lippies! Sorry.

This soap has given me back my confidence! After quitting birth control, my skin was beautiful for a few months but a few weeks ago, I starting breaking out in horrible cysts. Red, painful, and new ones were popping up every day. I was so devastated because my skin was the best it has ever been. I tried switching to a cleanser that was very gentle and had worked for me in the past, but it did nothing. Years ago, a friend told me she used this soap and it cleared her breakouts right up. I was desperate so I went and got some. I am beyond thrilled. This prevented new cysts and calmed the existing ones tf down. My skin also looks way less red and irritated, so I feel the scarring will be minimal to nonexistent. I was worried this would make my skin insanely oily or dry it out way too much, it did neither. My skin feels soft and balanced.

I've been using this twice a day for about a week. So far I really like it. I love the way it makes my skin feel. It seems to do a good job at moisturizing, but doesn't make my skin oily. I bought it to help with acne breakouts and I really hope it works. I haven't gotten any new pimples since starting it and the ones I have seem to be healing quickly.

Gave it a low score for packaging but who cares? My daughter has been using it for a few days and her acne is almost gone with no dryness and her face is less red and irritated looking as well. We tried all the otc brands as well as proactive. They didn't work at all. We bought it Monday night and today is only Thursday. She already looks amazing. I'm so glad we avoided harsh chemicals and pills. How is this huge messy bar of soap not being sold everywhere? I had never even heard of it.
