This soap is my holy grail soap. I love love love the Alaffia brand, it is my favorite for soap, shampoo, conditioner, and all other body products! It is a quite thin consistency and makes your skin look dark when you put it on. It smells lovely, very citrusy! I use it as a body wash and to shave my legs and they feel sooo smooth afterwards. It states you can use it as a shampoo too but I have never used it as one, i bet it would be great though!
