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.
Reviewed by 356 customers works for my KP
sheener from Dallas, TX
a fan of their products for going on 16 years now. it's exfoliating enough without drying out my skin. I like to have an assortment of body washes in the shower and this will always be one in rotation. perfect for winter during periods when my skin is so dry and flaky. so good for dry legs and my KP on my arms. I'm obsessed with the herbal scent! if you are not into herbal then this is definitely not for you
Emily from Pennsylvania
I think I've reviewed before already, but I wanted to add that my boyfriend started using this when he ran out of his body wash, and he loves it too. He has psoriasis, and this has really helped improve the appearance of it.
I have about 10 of these stocked up right now. I'll never use anything else.
Joybird from Idaho
After the first shower using this, my skin was softer and smoother. Continued use has given more softness and smoothness. This will always be a part of my body care routine!
tiff from WA
used it 3x and the bumps on the back of my upper arms are completely gone. significant improvement on the back of the legs/butt area. works so fast!
Great on legs
Jan from IL
My legs were so dry and flaky. I purchased a small bottle to try it after hearing a You Tube review. I squeezed some into a washcloth and washed my dry legs. After one use I noticed a difference. Once I rinsed and dried off I applied my usual body lotion and the lotion absorbed so much better. Leaving my skin less dry. I will be going back to the store to buy the large bottle. It is expensive so I plan on only using it on my driest skin, my legs.
ExtraSpicy from VA
Makes skin very clean without being drying and also smells pleasant like a fresh slightly floral but definitely feminine leaning. I'm trying to use more eco friendly skincare without SLS but this product may get a pass because it's effective and affordable.
I'm surprised at how many Mario Badescu products have become staples this year. I enjoy using the facial mists and have also started to use the glycolic toner as well as the enzyme cleanser.
Skin care gurus like to put this brand down but if you have problems with your skin like dry skin with occasional breakouts then give it a try.
Shelbywoo from TN
This broke me out terribly and the ingredients are trash.
I do not like this
thriftyguru from Oregon
I have not noticed any drastic change on my skin since using, also can't seem to stand the smell. Something about this formula really turns my nose. I'm sad to give one of these products a low review, cuz I like so many of them, but this was not good for me. I get the ick. It's got like a weird rose smell, or like old lady smell? like expired floral perfume or perfume going bad. Sorry.
Helps with the body breakouts
Mandy from Kentucky
I originally bought MB's glycolic acid cleanser but it was too strong for my face so I started using it on my body with great results. I didn't realize how much I needed it until I ran out, so I picked this one up to replace it and it also works very well! I get breakouts in my chest area and using this when I shower helps clear it up. It also smells good and softens skin.
Now that I'm out of it, I miss it
Rachel from Salt Lake City, UT
This product didn't seem like a miracle worker but now that I'm out of it, I miss it. I've started using other products and once I'm done with them, I'll be switching back to this and the O cleansing lotion (toner). I'm not sure that it completely healed my back acne but it did work really well with the cleansing lotion to keep my spots under control. Give it a try. See what you think.
Never using another body wash again
Emily from Pennsylvania
I've been struggling with back acne for 16 years.
I've been on oral and topical prescriptions, tried every other product out there and this is the One that stopped the uphill battle.
There hasn't been a cyst on my back since I started using this. My acne came to the surface almost Instantly and never came back. It also works wonders with ingrown hairs or razor bumps.
My skin is so much smoother, and it's even helping with the hyperpigmentation and scarring. It has a very light fresh scent but not overpowering at all. I have about 8 bottles stocked up in my bathroom right now. I'm so in love.
A must have for body acne!
Carrie from USA
I only started using this daily (with an exfoliating cloth) a few days ago, and wow my skin feels so much softer and smoother! I have mild back and chest acne (which I pick at and make worse) but this really helps me! No new spots and the others are healing. Great price too.
Tori from Houston

arj324 from arkansas
i didn't notice a different using this, and realized it actually has terrible ingredients.
Lee from Tennessee
I've struggled with mild acne on my chest and shoulders for the past few years. This product has helped SO MUCH. I use it in the shower daily with no issues.
Slowly but surely!
Ellie from FL
I was pretty skeptical for the first few weeks because I wasn't seeing any reduction in redness or bumps on my arms… but recently I've seen the bumps are much smaller or gone! It definitely took time but Id say this product really helped with the bumps on my arms. It's a great product for the price and seems to work for me, definitely buying again! Also it smells pretty good, not too strong.
Best body wash I've ever used
Ray from Florida
It smells amazing, it lathers nicely, and the blemishes on my upper back and shoulders disappeared after using this daily for a week. Highly highly recommend
Liz from Atlanta
Such a great body soap! Helps makes the skin feel super clean and helps with body acne too. Lasts a super long time! I've bought 3 bottles already and will definitely buy more!
I like it so far
Nat from Florida
I got this product because I've been researching products to use on my bacne. I saw good reviews for this so I bought it. I've been using it for almost a week now and I've seen some of my bumps starting to clear up. I also like the scent.
Beebee from California
Love this body soap! Saw improvements in my body acne very quickly. Definitely adding this to my shower routine.
It Really Works
B.R. from Arizona
I was struggling with bad breakouts on my chest, shoulders, and back. I tried many products before this one and nothing worked to completely rid of them. This product COMPLETELY cleared all my breakouts on my chest, back, and shoulders. Because my acne was so bad, it took about a month to completely clear, but I promise the wait is WORTH IT!
Stormiela from USA
It does make my skin look smoother but remember you need to use SPF all over your body if using an AHA product.
Didn't work for me
jb from massachusetts
I was so excited to try this because the reviews were so good, but I'm almost done with the bottle and it hasn't done anything for the acne on my back.
ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS!!(:
Mariobadescuismydaddy from Boston
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!
