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

      I bought this product because of a BuzzFeed article. A customer review swore on its ability to clear back acne. I was skeptical but spent the money. I have used it each shower (4 times) since and ALREADY my back is clear. Just in time for the hot Chicago summer. I highly recommend this problem if you have body acne!

        I use this as a multi purpose wash....like a body wash, face wash, and shampoo. It leaves my scalp extra clean and helped get rid of my dandruff. I've never felt cleaner and refuse to use anything else. It's also helped with my ance and bumps I had behind my arms and legs.

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

          I suffer from hormonal breakouts everywhere, sadly its a combination of genetics and hormonal imbalance.
          That being said I would suffer from really bad chest/back acne that come in large painful zits in random clusters. Especially in the summertime its embarassing and well sometimes painful (like wearing the seatbelt and it lays right on your chest where painful zits are).

          I bought this based on reviews and wasn't expecting much, however it has dried up my zits on my chest and back! I've used it for 2 weeks and I see it drying up on my chest and shrank to size!! I am so relieved! Of course there is redness from the healing process but the point was it was actually being treated!!
          I was using everything from Neutrogena Body Wash with salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide cream, etc.

          If you have body acne, try it out! And its a great value as well!!!

            I just start using this product,3 days in, so i can't see any of the results of it helping my body acne just yet but it really do leave the skin clean. I use this soap with a loaf to scrub myself at night. Only giving it 3 star for now.
