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.

I bought this for my boyfriend as a gift and ended up using it at his house when I stayed over and OMG it's amazing. It smells beautiful like the best flower you've ever smelled but not in a gross fragrance way, it helped smooth my bumps & ingrown hairs, and it makes your skin feel so soft and amazing! I'm reordering 2 more bottles(: this body wash might be my soul mate
Lena from Washington
Love this! Please don't ever discontinue!
Makes skin so smooth
Jessicakes from Olivehurst
Best body soap ever my psoriasis and keratosis pilaris smooth out to almost nothing after this I will forever use this soap please don't ever stop making it it also got rid of my husbands acne scars on his face from cystic acne after a few months of consistently using this soap
darlingkt from North Carolina
It's perfect for my boyfriend! Softened his skin, helped with his acne and kp all over his body. I don't think I like it for me though. I think it dried my skin too much, and I'm still getting the kp on my arms. I'll buy more for him, but I'm going to try the new rose soap for me instead and see how that goes when refill time comes (we've been using it about a month or so now).
Did not help my kp 😭
Banessa from Las Vegas , Nv
Before purchasing this product I went through the reviews of course, and saw a lot of people comment on how this helped there kp. I have it all over my upper arms . Unfortunately I am on my second bottle since the first one I bought was the smaller size . I noticed it helped a little at first so that gave me hope to continue using it but so far no results in helping my kp at all. I will say that it did help with the bumps I had on the back of my thighs from shaving so that's why I gave it two stars .
Not that girl from CA
My arms, with lifetime of kp, are finally smooth. Haven't had a torso outbreak (folliculitis) since starting this a few months ago. No ingrowns on my thighs. No booty bumps. You have to moisturize properly. It helps.
You also have to use sunscreen with this product. No excuses.
And remember ymmv. This wash makes my husband break out and he super purged. It was uncomfortable. It is not meant for everyone.
Actually Works and Smells Amazing
ThatGirl from Florida/Georgia
I love this stuff so much! I have sensitive skin and I sweat a lot in my sleep so I get pretty bad bacne, but since I started using this I don't get the painful ones or nearly as much in general. I love that I didn't have to spend a fortune and feel so clean after every use.
Pam from Kc
Works very well for my bacne
LN from NC
Has a really nice but light smell. Bought to help the KP on my arms and it's definitely helping, but I'm going to have to be consistent with using it. Sometimes scented body washes make me irritated, but this hasn't. Great for the price point and would recommend.
Really improves KP!
Corinne from Washington
I've tried it all folks - a million different lotions and Rx products. Nothing worked. This body wash in combination with the First Aid Beauty Bump Eraser exfoliater and then followed up with the CeraVe Moisture Cream/Bio Oil body oil is what did it for me finally after like 15 years of having KP. I noticed an immediate and massive improvement. Can't recommend enough.
Hannah from Michigan
You need this if you have body acne. Clears me up super fast and when used consistently I never get body acne. Smell isn't amazing but I always use a different body wash after using this. U don't need a lot of product it has lasted me so long
asng from LA
great amount for a great price, been using this for over half a year and see no difference at all. it can also be drying to make sure to hydrate after showering.
Didn't do as nothing for my skin.
J from Texas
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
Extra Sensitive RedHead from USA
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.
