          Comments about Mario Badescu A.H.A Botanical Body Soap:

          I've been using various body washes with salicylic acid to try to control body acne for about 8 years. I'm in my early 20s now and have been growing out of my acne prone skin and decided to try a few weeks on a non-acne controlling body wash. I tried a couple different brands but my acne on my chest and back kept getting worse, and I was dreading trying to get it back under control with the salicylic acid washes. I bought this on a recommendation from a friend and it is AMAZING. I've used it about 5 times now and the difference in my skin from horribly broken out to healing and calming down is DRAMATIC. I cannot recommend this product enough, I wish I'd been using it for years.

                If you get bumps on your upper arms this is what you need to use! I tried lotions and other scrubs but this is the best. It will take a few weeks but if you use it everyday (and I use it with scrubby gloves) those annoying KP bumps will go away and stay away.

                  I purchased this after seeing it recommended to help with dark spots and clogged pores. While I haven't used it long enough to be sure if those claims are true, I am very pleased with the scent and effectiveness otherwise. After a few uses I can already feel the difference in my skin, none of that harsh winter dryness that is typical this time of year. I can't wait to see the results over time.

                    Comments about Mario Badescu A.H.A Botanical Body Soap:

                    I started using this body wash years ago when I discovered Mario Badescu. It's very similar to the old Khiel's Mango Body Wash they discontinued years ago. This body wash smells great, lathers nicely when added to cloth or pouf. It keeps me moisturized and keeps and acne on my back at bay. It's a cult favorite for me at this point.

                        Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun. We recommend that you use a sunscreen and limit sun exposure while using this product.

                        A:

                        Generally, we recommend the AHA Botanical Body Soap for body use only. It would not be considered unsafe for facial use, but some may find that it is too harsh for the more delicate skin on their face. We are happy to hear that it is working for you but would suggest incorporating a facial cleanser with AHA's into you skin care regimen to lessen any long term drying effects. The Enzyme Cleansing Gel would be a great option to alternate using:
