A.H.A. Botanical Body Soap is enriched with fresh fruit extracts to exfoliate and cleanse the skin.

Excellent choice for those with problem skin on the back, chest and shoulders. Leaves no soapy residue and smells heavenly.
Use daily as an all over body wash, avoiding face and eyes. Apply to wet skin with a soft cloth, loofah, or sponge. Rinse thoroughly. If product gets into eyes, rinse well with water.

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

      My skin gets very dry in the winter (especially on my legs), and I wanted a quick and easy way to exfoliate that doesn't leave a slippery shower, and/or require extensive scrubbing (like many of the salt/sugar scrubs do). This is absolutely perfect - it's a foaming cleanser that leaves my skin smooth - flakes, patches and itchiness GONE - after one shower. Period back breakouts are also gone. It smells great, works great, and is gentle enough to use every day. I hope to never be without this!

        Didn't help with acne

        By JR

        from San Jose, CA

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

        I'm more than halfway through the bottle and I used it in combination with the special cleansing lotion that they recommend for body acne (some on upper back and arms). It hasn't helped clear or reduce the acne at all and doesn't seem to have improved my skin in any other ways either. The smell is not bad but it's not good either.

              I love this brand so much!!! I bought the body wash because I wanted to try it out. This stuff is amazing it smells good and it doesn't dry my skin out at all. I can dry my self off and my skin doesn't feel tight or screaming for lotion right away! This is a staple in my shower routine. I highly recommend this product.

                I love this body was. I have oily skin and tend to get heat rash on my arms and this gets rid of that without causing my skin any trouble. It's also great in the winter months when my skin dries out some. No longer do I have to have multiple body washes. Plus it's cruelty free which is very important to me.

                        We recommend bringing the product or list of ingredients to your doctor for approval before using any skin care products while pregnant. We suggest this because recommended products or ingredients can vary slightly from doctor to doctor and only your physician knows your medical history.

                        Our AHA Botanical Body Soap does contain exfoliating ingredients suitable for a daily shower cleanser. However if you are looking for a product to reduce discoloration on the body, our Glycolic Foaming Cleanser can be used a few times per week on those areas. This will help brighten, exfoliate the skin and reduce discoloration from sun spots or acne scars. http://www.ulta.com/glycolic-foaming-cleanser?productId=xlsImpprod6200753
