I use Alaffia's liquid black soap. It's not drying at all! Make sure you get a natural one. Some companies make black soap with dye (it's really brown soap) that stains.
I'm glad you said that, and that you started this thread iroc. I believe this is the one they sell in my health food store. I'm always looking at it, but putting it back on the shelf. I'm doing a ACV run tomorrow so I'll pick some up.
Worn out iPhone. Need I say more?
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??
I used a few different brand--bar and liquid--a few years ago. I don't remember any of them being drying. I was disappointed, though, because I kept hearing how amazing it was. It wasn't bad at all, it just didn't live up to the hype.
And I did use the Shea Moisture body wash. I liked it (never tried it on my face), just not enough buy again.
I tried the SheaMoisture black soap body wash and i LOVE it! My skin is prone to both dryness and oiliness (sp?) and the SheaMoisture body wash helps to balance my skin.
It's a bit pricey for me, $9.99 - $10.99, depending on where you purchase but it's definitely worth it.
