African Black Soap



African Black Soap Body Lotion is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Lotion Not only does this lotion soften and moisturize my skin but it also has evened my skin tone. I am in my sixties and have very light skin that tends to be blotchy. I had some scars on my arm that are now gone. I know that the lotion is not advertised for that kind of thing, but I highly recommend it. This lotion is very thick. Another reviewer suggested ajar, which I think is a great idea. What I have learned is that once I have used some of the lotion in the bottle, I poured just a little bit of distilled water in and shake it well. It is much easier to get out of the bottle when it is diluted just a little, but I still take the cap off rather than flipping the top.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worst bottle ever, but love the lotion This lotion is outstanding, however, it is so hard to get out of the bottle I am looking for a replacement product. The lotion is so thick it won't squeeze out of the bottle. I have to put the lid on and pound it on the counter several time to get the product to neck of the bottle. Then I have to use both hands to squeeze it into another container with a wider mouth and repeat the process until I can get out as much of the lotion as possible so I have easier access to the lotion each time I want to use it. It's a real pain!! It should come in a more conducive user friendly container.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome - HOWEVER! I just hear about This product! Was looking for a good natural body lotion. HOWEVER, the lotion is THICK, THICK, THICK! It is difficult to get out of the plastic bottle it comes in. I'm SQUEEZING AND SQUEEZING, banging on counter top to get it out, taking the top of. PLEASE does this come in a JAR? Or can you put it in a JAR? I'm a senior citizen and believe me, I get frustrated trying to get it out! Other than that, I LOVE IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ABSOLUTE BEST... This lotion is the BEST ever! I have been using the lotion for years, and have noticed a difference in the dark spots on my back. The dark spots are gone. Yes, this lotion is thick, but that's the beauty of it. The product is all natural, with pure, high quality ingredients, so of course the consistency will be thicker (unlike other products, whose first ingredients consist of water). I agree that the lotion is hard to get out of the bottle when you get about half way through it. solution that I have come to use is to just cut my bottle in half with a steak knife (or some other serrated knife), and scoop the rest of the lotion out of the bottle. It takes about five seconds! It works for me, and the product does not go to waste!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fabulous product! I love it. This product is one of the best lotions I have ever used. Please please please do not ever change the formula. I do have a suggestion, however, since I agree with the reviews that have pointed out that the formula is very thick and difficult to get all of it out of the bottle. I am a massage therapist, so have experience using many different kinds of lotions in different forms. An idea to consider would be having a tube, which is refillable. Sacred Earth massage cream as well as Biotone cream have tubes that can be refilled. I, for one, would be willing to purchase a larger quantity in order to be able to refill a tube. Whatever you do, please DO NOT EVER CHANGE THIS FABULOUS FORMULA!!. Just make it easier to dispense.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So thick it's hard to use in this packaging I really enjoy this lotion. The package can greatly improve. Too much goes to waste unless cut the bottle and even than the bottle is extremely hard. Need a softer bottle squeeze cap or jar like. Smell a bit strong so I mostly use at night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this lotion Would love to get this in a tub. Would be easier to consume all of it rather than cutting bottle open to get all the out but otherwise great stuff

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this lotion - hate the bottle Would have given an excellent rating but I end up wasting the last bit of lotion because I can't get it out. Turning it upside-down doesn't help when it's almost gone. Love the thickness and natural ingredients (no parabens is a huge plus). Please, please, please offer a pump bottle.

With all of the similar feedback about the difficulties of squeezing the product out of the bottle, will your company consider changing the bottle to a pump style? Love this lotion but probably won't buy more until packaging is changed.

PLEASE, can you put the BODY LOTION in a JAR? It is difficult to get out of the plastic bottle it comes in! I actually have to bang it on the counter top to get it out each time I use it! Which is every day! I'm a senior citizen!

Asked by: LadyDi1
I also have the same problem with the packaging. What i do is place the bottle upside down so that most of the products sits by the opening of the bottle. Just make sure the bottle is completely closed when you're doing using it.

The ingredients differ on the website than my bottle, could you help clarify why and if it will still smell the same? And when will the new packaging drop? Or are pumps available? (shea moisture has pumps for the same size bottles) Thank you~

You changed the look and ingredients in your Raw Shea soap, and I highly dislike that you changed the ingredients without changing the info on amazon. I'd like to know if this is also the case with this Black Soap Body Lotion as I've come to rely on it.
