    I've had keratosis poliris & this helps wonders. I feel fresh & smell amazing for a while after. I use this as soap for a nice bubble bath, really beautifully fragrant bubbles & soft skin. Won't be going back after discovering.

    Was highly recommended this product specifically to combat bacne. I have used up an entire bottle now and can say that, while this product didn't irritate my skin or cause me to dry out any more than I was before, it did nothing for my acne.

      Lately, my skin has reacted negatively to my usual sugar body scrubs but I still love frequent exfoliation. This has been a life-saver. My skin stays smooth and is irritation free.

        Got this product because I liked another MB product (a spray), and I love it! I have KP, so my upper arms and legs have lots of little bumps. Since I started using this, I noticed that my skin is much softer. Even family members have commented that my skin looks better and feels softer. The roughness is basically gone. The smell is really nice and it is gentle. I feel really clean after using it, and a little bit goes a long way, so I feel I'm getting a real bang for my buck. I will be buying this product again and again.

          I recently moved to a dryer climate and my skin freaked out on my shoulders and upper back. This helped calm my acne and is gentle enough to use daily.

              Got this product to try to clear up some breakouts I was having on my chest, back, and shoulders. I live in a really humid climate and had been using a body wash with tea tree oil, which helped but didn't eliminate the problem. About 2-3 weeks after starting to use this cleanser, I have no breakouts. I didn't even realize it until the other day, when I noticed that I haven't been dealing with them anymore and everything has significantly cleared up. I actually like the smell, and the formula foams easily to let me effectively treat my back, shoulders, and chest. Skin feels smooth, no new breakouts. Love this stuff! Also a killer bargain.

                  I was using the Panoxyl bar for years but then it was hard to find in stores & I think my body just wasn't reacting to the bar anymore, so I needed something new! I've used Mario Bedascu products before & I was interested when they had something that would maybe help my bacne. At the beginning I didn't really see a change. It could be that I was also using other new products. So I stopped using everything & just started using the MB cleanser! The bottle lasted me more than 3 months & I've had less open/red pimples since then! I have a lot of scars but as for pimples, they have reduced immensely! I'm pretty please with the outcome & plan on buying a 2nd bottle! Twice a week I will also use a toner on my back which helped cleared my bacne a bit! So far i love this MB cleanser!

                    If you ever wonder if it really does a great job, please don't try it on your face. It's like a legit chemical peel, and it's not super fun. This stuff really, really works. Perfect for KP!

                        Yes this is a great daily body cleanser that will help soften and smooth skin (and is also great for those with acne!). Papaya and grapefruit extracts help breakdown dead skin cells to leave skin feeling soft and smooth. Ginseng extract rejuvenates while oat protein soothes sensitive and irritated areas.

The AHAs provide gentle exfoliation that will help prevent future breakouts while working to reduce minor skin discolorations.
