Shea Moisture African Black Soap is quite a large bar of soap and there are some scrubby bits and granules mixed in, probably bits of oat. There is a strong fruity-candy kind of fragrance to the soap that might seem a bit overpowering if you have a sensitive nose, but it doesn't linger on the skin. This is quite a large bar of soap, and I prefer slicing it in half to make it easier to hold. It does a surprisingly good job at leaving my skin squeaky clean without drying it out or leaving any kind of residue on it. I do have to follow up with a moisturizer since I have incredibly dry skin. I have also read some good reviews from people who have used this soap for the face - apparently, it helps reduce acne - but I haven't used this on my face so far. Overall, this is a nice soap to try out if you suffer from eczema or other dry-skin problems, plus the bar lasts a long, long time!
