Most Helpful Positive Review FINALLY I HAVE SOMETHING THAT WORKS!!!!
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!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Works well
I bought this product to try and reduce occasional breakouts on my back. I don't see any huge improvement so far when It comes to preventing new breakouts. However, I found this body soap to be very effective If you have dry, itchy skin. While other soaps and body washes make my already dry skin more dry and itchy, this one does not. It actually calms my skin while cleaning well. The reason I gave the product only 3 stars is that I don't think it is very effective against breakouts. However, since every person is different, just give it a try, especially if you have very dry skin.

Because of the name I assumed this contained AHAs but it doesn't. It's extremely drying and has a decent amount of cheap smelling fragrance. I don't think it helps with hyperpigmentation at all. The ingredient list is pretty pathetic. Regret buying this.
Savvy from Texas
I used this body wash for a little over a year. It's OK - it definitely helped with my body acne, but I used other products alongside it to truly manage my acne. It also dried out my skin a lot; recently I had to switch to a new wash because it was just too drying. However, I do have very sensitive skin.
Great for dry, breakout prone skin
KT from Charleston, SC
I like this body cleanser a lot. It suds up well and cleans the skin thoroughly without drying out my skin. I would recommend it to anyone who struggles with KP and occasional body acne. Note for those with nickel allergies: because the ingredients contain botanical extracts, this would not be a good fit for you.
Emily from PA
It's not bad, it smells good and I feel like it cleans my skin well. I was hoping it would help with acne scarring on my back but it didn't really.
Not bad, but doesn't help with dark spots
Hector from New caney Texas
Not a bad product
Wish it helped with hyperpigmentation but can't win every battle
The smell is good
It lathers pretty good
Rosie from New York
I've been using this along with the CeraVe SA Cream for Rough and Bumpy skin to treat my KP (keratosis pilaris) and it works like a dream. Best when using with an exfoliating glove or other loofah.
Lighten my acne scars
Hi from FL
I'm southern asian girl and easy get pigment acne scar blemish. I used this aha body wash for two month and notice my scar are disappearing. I have my acne scar blemish over 10 years. There was never an aha wash cleanser in the market. I even to to esthetician learned about skin care. I'm glad I bought it.
Great body wash
Emily from Denver, CO
I really love this body wash. It's got a light scent to it and leave my skin feeling clean and refreshed. I sometimes get symptoms of Keratosis pilaris on my legs and after using this body wash for a week I've noticed that those pesky little pimple likes bumps are gone!
I love the body wash and how it clears my skin!
Yvette from Columbia, SC
I use this product to help remove dead skin and over time your skin will become clear and glow. It can cause dryness and skin irritation if used incorrectly so a good moisturizer with some sunscreen is key.
Improves Texture and Reduces Dark Spots!
Kenzie from Wisconsin
I have acne scarring on my back, and I've tried products ranging from scar treatments to scrubs. I found a review on this helping, and it was right! The dark marks aren't gone everywhere, but they are much less noticable. Also, when I've tried products specifically for acne on my back, it can be too drying. After using this wash, my skin feels soft and moisturized! I just finished the bottle I bought and am buying another now!
Pleasing body soap
Jessica from Connecticut
Has a very clean smell to it, my skin normally gets irritated using heavy fragranced body soaps such as various body washes from Bath and Bodyworks. My skin does not get sensitive with this body wash. great price too.
Love the fresh scent
Donna from Oklahoma
This gel makes me feel so clean and fresh. What's so amazing, the feeling stays with me throughout the day.
Val from Los Angeles, California
I've struggled with body acne, mostly on my chest and back, for a while (especially in the summer), and could never find a solution for it. This has literally been the only thing that has cleared up my chest and back within DAYS of using it... not to mention it smells great too. Would def recommend (:
Shyshy from Boise, Idaho
Love this as my shower gel! Smells great and doesn't leave my skin filmy. Both my husband and I work in jobs that make you sweat and never could feel clean and we're getting body acne from it. This cleared it right up and leaves us actually feeling clean.
Kait from Portland
This is the only soap that has ever worked for my body acne!
Works great for Body Acne!
Cat from Virginia
I'm so glad I took the plunge with this product! I've been struggling with back and shoulder acne for half a year or so now that just wouldn't go away. I work a pretty active part-time job, so I get sweaty which I think largely contributed to my skin issues on my body. If you're active and are struggling with your skin give this body wash a shot! My skin has been improving each week as well as the scars.
Paul from Philadelphia
Nice clean scent. Lathers well. Bigger bottle would be better. Pricing ok.
I tried this body soap on a whim and I love it.
fussy consumer from Palm Springs, Ca
I can't say enough about how much I love this liquid body
Doesn't work at all!
NB from CA
I was super excited to use this product as I have a number of spots on my body that include old and new scars, acne, and pigmentation. I've been using this for 1.5 months now and haven't seen any changes to any of the above. I'm pretty disappointed as I've used Mario Badescu products with success in the past, but this is just not worth it.
Go girl, give us nothing!
Healing my bacne
Sleepypup from San Jacinto, Ca.
I purchased this product because I was beginning to break out on my upper back and it was causing scaring. This has controlled my bacne and has helped fade the scars. I apply it with a bath brush which adds a little exfoliating action. It leaves my skin feeling super clean. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT.
I love this product it is excellent I will bug it again
Liz from Cherry hill nj
I have acne on my body and this product is extremely helpful. Love it
Sab from Az
I bought this because I saw how many people recommend this for body acne. I've been using it for a month now and haven't really seen much of a difference. What I did notice was during my "time of the month" I did not get any breakouts on my back which is where I typically get them. Aside from that, it smells okay, has an herb smell. It has made my back a little itchy so definitely hydrate.
Helping my KP!
Owly from CA
This is the first product that has helped with my KP everywhere including my "strawberry legs"!!! At first I thought that it wasn't working, but it's because I wanted results overnight; it has been about a month of consistent use followed by a really moisturizing lotion and my skin is looking goooood. It doesn't smell horrible, but not great either.
Gentle yet effective Body Soap

With change of weather, this soap works great especially for backne, yes acne on your back. Follow up with mario badescu special cleansing lotion "o"
Reduced body acne significantly, but need to be consistent
Jay from Honolulu HI
This thing works. It reduced over half of my body acne (back, arms, chest) since I started using it daily, 4 months ago. I love that it's affordable, too. Like most skincare products, you have to be consistent. I don't think it worked immediately for me but I was patient with it.
