Actually caused acne in places I've never had it

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

      In the summer, I am prone to getting acne mechanica from the heat and friction of my bra or tight clothing, so I thought this might help. Wrong! This cleanser never left me feeling clean, and it did nothing to dry up the small spots on my back. It also has a very nasty floral chemical odor that irritated me. I'm sure that's why it caused new blemishes in places I never get acne, like my shoulders and chest. A few tiny pimples sprang up and this was the only product I was using, so I immediately put it aside and the spots disappeared and haven't since returned.

      disappointed about product :(

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

      I was very excited to try this product out since I know Mario Badescu has AMAZING products. However, on my first two uses I noticed my back reacted horribly with this product. This product gave me massive amounts of rashes on my back where I concentrated the product. Overall, I was hoping this product helped with my bacne but it seems as if it worsen the problem.

              I did not notice any difference in my back acne. I've been battling back acne for a year now, and nothing seems to be working. I read the reviews on this. O shower twice daily, and still have not seen a difference. I will keep looking.

              I suffer from really bad body acne and this stuff right here has been clearing it up. I still have some blemishes but it's definitely getting better. I don't think it's meant to help body acne but it's been helping mine. Not to mention that the scent is heavenly.

                    A:

                    The fruit acids in A.H.A Botanical Body Soap will provide the daily necessary exfoliation. You may also want to incorporate a scrub for an added level of weekly exfoliation.

                    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:
