Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Shea Butter Soap

My Experience

This bar soap delivers. What does it deliver, you ask? It delivers extremely clean skin, wickedly clean skin, walk-into-VIP-no-waiting, sleep-better-at-night clean skin. If you love the power of bar soap, get ready to level up.

This does not produce a great deal of foam when used with a body cloth, body gloves, or puff. It does produce a sort of creamy froth, which was a pleasant surprise.  I was pleased to not feel any residue on my skin, and my skin wasn’t irritated despite the cleansing power of this soap.

I did immediately slather on the coordinating lotion, as this is quite strong.

The scent of this is soft, creamy, and fruity. I personally don’t care for fruit-based scents; however, this one is quite pleasant. The scent didn’t linger on my skin after my bath, unlike other bars from this brand, interestingly.

  • Creamy, rich lather (though not as thick as other soaps from this brand)
  • $5
  • High-quality, natural ingredients
  • Available at your local drugstore, Target, Walmart, or Ulta
  • Deeply cleanses


These bars are an excellent size, and when properly stored (Keep it dry, dry, dry!) can last up to 3 months, with daily use.

  • No toning/brightening
  • Soap scum (#HardWaterLife)
  • Scent fades
  • Melts easily
  • May strip drier skin types

I didn’t experience brightened skin (nor scar fading) or more toned skin. You mileage will vary for those two.

Unlike the other bars of tried from this brand, its gentle fragrance becomes extremely faint, following the first few uses.

Please note: Like any soap bar this will melt if not properly stored. I learned that the hard way, as I was lackadaisically about keeping out of the spray of my shower when not in use.


Want an all-natural, high-quality, deeply cleansing, refreshingly fruity and creamy bar soap for $5 at your local drugstore? Look no further.
