Rated 4.58 out of 5 stars
I got this because I have read a bunch of articles about how it helped with stubborn back breakouts. I didn't want to use benzoyl peroxide because my clothes and bedding are too valuable to ruin at my age. This has been working well - and quickly, I might add. However, I have had it for about a week and had to discontinue daily use. It was too drying. Maybe I should've crawled before I walked and started slower. I'll try to slow my roll and add to daily use in the future if I need too. The reduction the new breakouts has been noticeable and what is there has gone down. Hopefully it takes down the scarring soon - I'm a lifer skinned Latina, so a bit of a concern there.
I received this enzyme body wash as a First Access List winner. So, it wasn't a product I wanted or needed.
PROS: great lather, visibly exfoliates, nice smell, great packaging
CONS: not great for sensitive skin (but what enzyme anything is?)
I usually use a really mild un-fragranced body wash so this was a big change for me. I would describe my skin (even body) as very sensitive. I used this enzyme body wash a few times (twice a week for two weeks) and I noticed that it sort of tingled in a worrisome way (not quite burning but close) when applied. The feeling didn't last long and it only happened in some places (my shins!). I ended up washing my body again each time with my regular body wash to make sure there were no residual enzymes.
I would say my skin does look brighter overall and definitely better prepped for moisture. I will continue to use this, but only once a week, making sure to avoid sensitive areas.
The packaging deserves its own note: the bottle "cap" rotates slightly to open a small hole in the top of the cap. It clicks shut. I can imagine that it would be secure in checked luggage and wouldn't spill during travel. Also, the bottle is that beautiful matte texture of all Boscia products that makes me cry every time I throw one into the recycling bin.
In short, this is not a daily body wash. For anyone with sensitive skin, think of this as a weekly treatment.

I started using this body wash last summer along with the body serum and my 47yo skin looked amazing. Took a break from it over the winter and used something less pricy, but now that the weather is getting warmer I plan to repurchase.

Surprised and happy that this worked. No more trial and error. This help with my strawberry legs and overall texture of my skin.

Soo I always had trouble removing deodorant completely before shaving, even after using soap, the razor would come out with deodorant gunk BUT when using this, it dissolves it so easily that there's no more gunk 🥲 This product is a true gem. Will forever keep buying. I feel so clean and SOO soft. No kidding, suuuuper soft skin. Wish it had more lather but the fact that it actually works so well, I can't complain. Truly happy with this product. For super soft skin, try using the Vit C from this brand after a shower then a good moisturizer on top (personal fav is cerave) 🥰

I used the products and works. I have honestly been looking for something to work on body ache and granted, and the smell is vital; nonetheless, a small 5 min sacrifice to make for fantastic improvement. It is an enzyme-based product, so that the scent will be present.

This body wash leaves you with smooth, softened, and brightened skin. I have noticed the skin on my elbows is smooth and moisturized, Hyper pigmentation on the back of my thighsand under my arms has improved and my skin over all is smoother and brighter! The lather does not feel like other body washes. It does not feel as "soapy" but you still feel clean. You can see the difference in your skin. I wasn't sure about this product but the results speak for themselves.

this stuff literally smelled TERRIBLE. then it was hard to get the smell off my body. also was very sticky and I didn't feel "clean" after using it. immediately got rid of it.

Bought this during a sale, thank goodness! This seems like a "purifying" cleanser, in the sense that it's pretty drying to me. I saw a review that mentioned exfoliating gloves helps, and I agree that an exfoliating tool likely helps this cleanser exfoliate. I just think that it being so over-drying causes flakiness which makes people believe it's helping exfoliating rather than not. I also read someone mention how it smells like the Comet cleaner. I can 100% agree with that. I was honestly in denial about that for a while, but it's true. This is again, just an OK cleanser to me. I wish I had the same feeling of "silliness" as others did, but I simply did not. I am also someone who needs to exfoliate quite a bit bc of ingrowns, just an fyi!

I'm so impressed with this stuff. Truly make my skin feel like silk and I feel it cleans it too. I love how it makes my skin feel!! I will keep buying! It's best to use it with a puff then after I have got it all over my body I then use a exfoliant brush. I'm so happy I got this stuff!!
Alex from Massachusetts
Makes my skin feel silky smooth. I suffer from Hidradenitis and this is a life saver no outbreaks since I started using this. Only down side and why I'm giving it 4 stars is because it smells like windex for sure.
olie23 from Miami
I bought this when it was half off, I would absolutely never pay retail for this. it's great I think in conjunction with an exfoliating glove. not crazy about the smell. it's just ok. don't understand the over hype on this.

The only thing that has effectively gotten rid of my body acne. It smells minty and citrus-y. a lot of people on here complaining about the scent— boscia as a brand doesn't put artificial fragrance in their products all that fragrance you expect in a body wash is probably the thing causing the acne in the first place. My body acne is has subsided and the scars are brightening up as well. If you were thinking about trying this, this is your sign!!!!

If you suffer from body acne and/or chicken skin, this is the product for you period.
Elle from Phoenix, AZ
I bought this from a TrendMood Box months ago and I love it!! It smells great and works even better, quickly removing dead skin cells to leave my skin feeling ultra soft and smooth. In fact, this scrub leaves me with smooth-as-a-dolphin skin that rivas results from a pre-pandemic korean spa body scrub. It also works great on feet and toes, eliminating calluses and overgrown cuticles. Definitely recommend!
anonymous from Undisclosed
before i got this cleanser, i had soo much acne on my back and arms, but this has totally transformed that! it's pretty cooling but otherwise amazing. the packaging is a little confusing at first but once you get the hang of it is super user friendly lol. overall i would recommend this to anyone else suffering from body acne
Jess from Massena ny

Teenage Grandma from Portland

Has a weird scent and barely lathers. A waste of money and have seen no difference in my skin. Even tried it on my face and did nothing..
Draya from Detroit, MI
I was having terrible body acne from working out and wanted to find a non drying body wash I can use daily. This soap is perfect! It smells nice, not overpowering, super gentle on my skin and I haven't had a breakout since using it! I will definitely keep this stocked in m bathroom for a while!
AmandaC from Detroit
Perfect in every way. Great smell (not strong, very mild and clean citrus scent), the texture is lovely and my skin looks, feels and smells great afterwards. This has also become my husband's body wash and he also loves it, which says a lot because he's very picky.
Kia C from Maryland
The only reason why I am not giving this body wash 5 stars is because I HATE it as a body wash. I don't like the tingling sensation on my body. On the other hand, I've started using this as a face wash and OMG...I was blown away!!! This does not dry my skin out. My skin is glowing, my hyperpigmentation has faded and my skin is super soft. I follow-up with the Rose toner, Caviar Lime booster serum and finish with the Chia seed moisturizer. My husband has also started using the body wash as a facial cleanser and his skin looks amazing as well. Will purchase again!
Brianna from Colorado Springs, Co
I bought this product with high hopes because I love chemical exfoliation for the body. It does exfoliate nicely, but all of these reviews are from the Boscua website and conveniently leave out the downside. When you apply it, it lathers up nice and after about 30 seconds you feel the cooling/tingling sensation. I leave on for about 2 minutes then rinse. BUT. Here's the problem. This product smells HORRIBLE. Like pine sol and winded mixed together. That is not what I want from a body wash. There are absolutely no fruity or fresh smells coming from this. I will use the bottle because it was expensive, but other brands have better options.
Jill from Lake Elsinore, Ca
Absolutely loved the new body wash!💙 With the little amount I used I'm surprised how well it lathered & stayed that way. Didn't have to put anymore on during my shower. Smelled kinda minty/lemony which I loved! My skin felt very hydrated after & didn't feel dry whatsoever. Can't wait to try the body serum next!! 💚💚💚
Kendra from Washington
A little goes a long way. Lathers a decent amount. Smells wonderful. My skin feels great and clean and I don't feel dry after I shower. Also I love the packaging and it's recyclable. I am a bit worried for when I get to the end like how well the product will come out. Wish there was a jumbo size of this cleanser and the body serum.
