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

    I have been using this shower gel for years. I put some on a loofah/shower brush and gently scrub my back. This stuff is great for back acne. I have tried cheaper alternatives (Neutragea, Shea Moisture, Dial, etc) but nothing compares to the effectiveness of this body soap. Since I only use it for my back, a large bottle lasts a very long time. I highly recommend!

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

        I have struggled with acne since I was 13 years old and I always felt helpless. The past few years I noticed I was getting bad breakouts on my chest and back and felt so embarrassed to wear anything low or revealing. I tried everything over the counter cream, Salicylic acid pads, medicated washes. Everything either irritated my skin or did not help at all. I have always really like Mario Basascu's products because they are gentle but really effective! I decided to give this one a try for my stubborn body acne and boy did I see a difference immediately! It's been about a week since I have used the product and I swear all the acne is gone and the scars are sooooo much better!! The smell does not bother me at all however I found this is a little drying but nothing a little lightweight moisturizer can't fix!! Seriously buy this if you are struggling with body acne!! It is super gentle and works immediately!!

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

          I tried this product out initially back in April of this year when I was having a lot of back/chest/upper arm acne. Have to say this helped control and clear up my body acne flare ups dramatically. It took about 2-3 weeks for the initial worse before it gets better to go by. However since then, if I break out at all, it is usually due to stress or perspiration (i.e. bra strap area). The smell is easy to get used to and the large size can last me a couple months. It lathers up nicely with only a little product on a pouf.

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

          I've been using an over the counter acne wash my dermatologist recommended for my back acne for about 6 months now and has ceased to show results. After just two weeks of using this product my acne has diminished and has even started to fade my acne scars.It's a very soapy product and the smell is somewhat floral but mildly smells like bug spray (at least in my opinion.) But even then, the smell isn't terribly bad. You should be using this soap right now! 10/10

                I received a sample of this soap. It smells so good! Don't know how effective it is against preventing or clearing up blemishes since I've only used it a few times. I will definitely be getting a full size bottle. Does not dry out my skin.

                      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:
