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.

It doesn't treat my acne as well as CeraVe. It smells nice, but I overall saw a decline while using.
Great for my sensitive skin
Mb123 from Missouri
I'm 24 and have combination/sensitive skin that is very acne prone. My skin will breakout at what seems like the slightest touch of something it doesn't like.
I use this soap after I go to the gym and it's really been helping keep my acne at a minimum.
Great Body Wash!!!
Haylea from United States
I'm currently pregnant and with all of the hormones my chest and back have broken out terribly! I saw the reviews on this and thought I'd give it a try. I'm so glad I did because I've already seen a huge difference in both my chest and back in about 5 uses!! This body wash is awesome
Great body wash but need to be consistent!
Krissy from CT
I started using this in hopes it would clear up my chest and back acne. As other reviewers said you have to use it for an extended period of time before you see results. I still have the occasional spot or two on my back but this greatly reduced my body acne after consistent use! Highly recommend but be patient!
Favorite body wash
Yazzy from Dallas
Feel nice and clean, like that it's free of any harsh chemicals, smells nice, alleviates body acne
Leaves skin feeling clean and helps prevent major breakouts.
Cat P from Durham, NC
I have bacne that is mostly caused by my picking at my skin. I've gotten better at picking, and this product has helped clear up some of the breakouts I had. My skin feels clean and soft after using, and I like the scent. Will be buying again.
great for backne
REW from MD
I don't get a lot of acne on my back but occasionally I'll get one or two spots every now and then but it's totally disappeared when I started using this. my skin also seems healthier and more nourished
Not the same

Please note that the 16 oz has Red dye #40 where the 8 oz has Red dye #4. This is a problem if you are allergic to Red #40/Alura Red
Aubrie from Springfield Oregon
I love it! Made my skin feel supper soft although I don't like the smell a lot.
Works for "Chicken Skin"
CBlanton from KY
I bought this product to target two of my biggest skin concerns: back acne and "chicken skin" as they call it (I believe it is folliculitis, but I have never been diagnosed to be certain).
This product has a mild, citrus smell that is not overpowering or chemical smelling. It lathers very nicely and if you leave it on your skin for about 1 minute, you will feel a slight tingling sensation (it is a very mild sensation, not uncomfortable at all).
For the back acne, this product did not help at all.
For the chicken skin, however, I did notice an improvement. The bumps on the back of my arms are noticeably smaller and as a result, my arms are a lot smoother and less red.
I will say that you MUST give this product time to work. Since this is a mild product with a modest amount of AHA, it is NOT going to be an overnight cure. I have been using this product consistently for approximately 1 month now, and I am now starting to see the results. I am hoping that with continued use, it will eradicate my chicken skin altogether.
Overall this product is great, especially for the price. My only advice is to give it time! If you purchase this product expecting to see results in a week, you will be disappointed. Keep using it for atleast a month before you judge it.
My favorite body wash
Nfl from SF
Everything a body wash should be, smells great, lathers up wonderfully with a shower pouf, and cleans my skin without drying it out.
Adorkable Beauty Lover from Traverse City, MI
So I use to have terrible body acne, but thankfully I've managed to get it under control with acne-fighting skincare products. I usually use the CeraVe SA body cream and body wash to control my body acne, but unfortunately I ran out of my body wash. So I bought this body wash as a replacement. Right away I noticed that it was extremely drying. After I got out of the shower I felt like I had been in the desert sun all day. My skin was so dry that I was scared to put on my normal SA cream, so I used regular body lotion instead. I had awful breakout all over my back and I just couldn't continue to use this. Now I'm just using my SA face wash for my body and it's working pretty well. The only reason I'm giving this product three stars is because I don't know if it caused my breakouts for sure. It could have been the moisturizer.
Doesn't do what it says it does
Katm from Chicago
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 (:
