Today's pick comes from Racked NY Associate Editor Nicola Fumo.

Shea Moisture African Black Soap, $4.99 at Walgreens

I heard rumblings of this African soap on some beauty blogs, so when it popped up on the shelves of my local Duane Reade, I had to try it for myself.

Holy. Mother. Of. Moisture. This is the only soap to ever completely eliminate wintertime dry skin and the red, itchy, embarrassing signs that come with it, plus it basically erased blackheads from my face for the cleanest pores on this side of adolescence. Everyone I've recommended the product to has seen killer results, including the elimination of eczema and acne. For five bucks, what have you got to lose but skin problems?
