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.

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.

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.

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.
Rachel from California
No changes to my skin, only made it dry... doesn't lather well enough for my liking

Only body wash I can use
Kayla from Virginia
I absolutely love this body wash, I've struggled with body acne for so long and this cleared it up within 2 weeks. I can't use very many body washes because they all break me out but this is my go to. It's so affordable and will last you a long time as well.
Broke me out
Cc from FL
I used this soap on my back and chest to help acne and it broke me out even more. I got a lot more cystic painful acne due to this soap it also has a strange smell that lingers on your body
Didnt see a difference really
Rachel from California
Disappointed in the product. Noticed that a lot of mario badescu's products do not cooperate well with my skin...
Hannah from Michigan
I have struggled with body acne for quite some time. Chest, shoulders and back and this has helped me sooo much!!
Madison from Oklahoma
This is working wonders as my skin loves AHAs. I really like the smell, too. Areas that I have texture are already smoother after a week of use.
I would buy this product again and again.
Court from Kansas City, KS
I absolutely love this body wash, I struggle with body acne mostly on my chest and back and ever since I have been using this I get minimal to no acne. It's not a magic soap and it doesn't get rid of acne all together on both my chest and back but it makes such a big difference to me that I don't feel really insecure about my skin. I used to use just any body wash that I could find at a drugstore near me but I noticed I would almost always break out. I have recently found this maybe about two months ago and after a week I noticed a difference. I started off with the smaller version to see if it worked like everyone said it does (which to me it did) and once I used that up I purchased the bigger one which to me is totally worth it. If you're looking for something to make a difference for you, I would highly highly recommend this soap. I will continue to purchase it over and over again!
Great smell, cleans well
Salamanders from California
Smells awesome, provides a gentle and moisturizing cleanse. Have not seen changes to my KP yet, but am hopeful!
A little iffy
Kj from Phoenix
I love this product now,but before when I had purchased it the smell of it had smelled a little iffy,but other wise than that it was a pretty good product.
Helps Body Pores
Amazing from Washington
I love this body wash! I have issues when I workout that my body clogs pores but this wash makes them exfoliated and clear! I will continue using this forever! A little goes a long way! Super foamy when you lather.
Give it a Week
KitSoCal from SoCal
I bought this for back acne on a whim, since it's not expensive and regular drugstore acne washes dry out my skin. I've been using it for 2 weeks now, first exfoliating my back with a yummy flavor of sugar scrub from Tree Hut, followed by the MB botanical soap (leave it on for a minute to work its magic), and all my bacne is gone. It was actually cured after about 4 showers, but now I'm just in preventative mode. The only downside is that the grapefruit smell is not to my liking, but that's just personal preference, and it doesn't linger after the shower.
