    Skin is a fickle thing. It can be fine one minute, and the next be broken out with acne or dry as a bone. Or maybe you have the kind of skin that's a total drama queen — it's always something! What's the plan to screw up my life today? Blackheads? Eczema? Blotchy red patches? What will it take to calm you down, skin???

    Well, for lots of people (over 1,000 folks who have left five-star Amazon reviews), the answer is Shea Moisture African Black Soap With Shea Butter. This paraben-free bar contains shea butter, aloe, and vitamin E and can be used all over the body to absorb oil and moisturize — and many also swear by it to calm acne, psoriasis, and eczema.
