Rated 4.4 out of 5 stars
I have struggled with bacne for more years than I care to count. Feels like I've spent a lifetime struggling to find results. Needless to say, I've tried anything & everything that promised to get the job done, AND was constantly let down. I'm writing this in hopes it may help someone else so your struggle might be over ,or at least world's better too! I've used this proactiv body was for 3 months now. 2% salicylic seems to be what my stubborn skin needs to have a chance. I ONLY use this body wash. Let it soak for about 1-2 minutes . The instructions do not say this,but all my prescription stuff did & it makes sense. Otherwise you're just washing it off before it has a chance to work. As soon as I get out of the shower I then apply Paula's choice 2% salicylic lotion & this routine has been the only thing to make a life changing difference for me. My breakouts are to stubborn for just one product, or the other.. I have to do both together for results. Took a good month of consistent use to see drastic improvements . The body wash lathers up nicely & a little goes a long way.
The results I have make this worth every penny & I can't be without it! I have looked into other 2% salicylic bodywash options & the price point/size ,plus the ingredients all make this particular bodywash such a great choice.
Not sure when it changed, but this does not have the same amount of beads as the original. Will continue to use until someone else comes out with a formula as good as the original.

I've been trying to find a Proactiv replacement since they stopped making that Deep Cleansing Wash. The Deep Cleansing Face Wash was so not it. It felt like my face didn't get clean and still felt residue-ish. I gave this a try and I LOVE it. A little goes a long way and my face and body feel so smooth and clean right after. The second pic in this page doesn't look anything like it though, it's not blue at all it's like a milky-white with scrub beads in it. Anyway my face and body are clean, less pimples, my face looks awake (very minimal needed for face), and it's going to last so long. Get it!!!

My husband works in the Mississippi heat so he gets back acne from sweating so much. We tried this and it cleared everything right up.

so my boyfriend has really bad back acne and i had bought this in a whim. when i tell you not only i but his whole family noticed a difference… it was crazy! yes, he still has some but not as much as before. it's cleared it up significantly. we shower maybe 2-3 times a week so it's not everyday but it's crazy how drastic the difference is.

I used this for about three weeks to a month before seeing any results (totally normal timeframe for skincare) but now my back is completely clear for the first time I can remember! My back has been a source of insecurity for so long and I'm extremely grateful to be able to put that behind me. Definitely give this a shot if you're in the same boat!!

Honestly I use this stuff as body wash and face wash and it works great. It doesn't have a strong smell but makes your skin feel clean and cleared all body acne within about a week of using it everyday.

I got recommended this body wash about a month ago. And I have been using it everyday since I got it and it has shown amazing results! I would but this again and I have no pimples on my body anymore.

I use this on my face after proactiv discontinued the deep cleansing wash. I have been very pleased. It cleared my mascne very quick! I also use a good dose of moisturizer afterward as it is meant for the body, but I can tell a big improvement in the texture of my face since using!
