Rated 4.64 out of 5 stars
I've actually never used a microbiome cleanser but I'd been wanting to try, so this was a fun, new experience.
The packaging of the product is attractive, love the sea foam green/pastel mint and I like the fact that the container is at least partially recycled. The fact that the company is founded by other women is fantastic.
I like the product itself. Gynaecologist tested and approved is very reassuring. The PH of 4.8 is very appropriate, it seems like a good median between skin PH and healthy vaginal PH. I really appreciate that the formula is 99% natural, this is something that I prioritise in skincare. Thanks to xanthan gum (I'm a fan of this, I use it in cooking) the consistency of the product is thick, viscous, and is easily spread. This is very positive, sometimes shampoo/body care products are watery, and in the shower this can be a little frustrating. It has a mild, not unpleasant scent and no added fragrance, which is what I would hope for in this type of cleanser. This doesn't leave any scent after using. I used it as a facewash a couple times as well, and I especially like it for that. Equal to using the product on my body, my face too was left clean and soft, not dry.
Looking at the ingredients, I love the addition of green tea and chicory extracts, which are proven in studies to be multi-beneficial for inside and outside of the body. Bentonite is a welcome, useful addition to skincare products. I also really enjoy Alpha-Glucan oligosaccharide for the cleansing and balancing of the skin's microbiome.
The only downside I can see is a few of the preservative ingredients listed toward the end. I know these are approved to be used in cosmetics/skincare up to certain percentages, I'm just very careful of products I use. Even if the scientific evidence against something isn't yet highly studied, it still makes me a little wary when ingredients are potentially harmful. I will say as far as preservatives, these are the most commonly included and are thought to be among the safest. I do appreciate the exclusion of fragrance, sulfates, and essential oils. The package is labeled that sulfates can trigger Malassezia, which unfortunately is something I struggle with chronically, in addition to candida. My PH balance is very easily upset, but I've used this cleanser without any negative reactions.
For myself I'm on the fence honestly about if I'd purchase this, because it has a few ingredients I try to avoid. I'm leaning more towards yes though because it honestly works very well. For my friends, family and others who aren't overly obsessive about a few specific ingredients - so, pretty much everyone - I would absolutely recommend it. This cleanser is pleasantly mild yet definitely effective, and includes some undeniably beneficial ingredients.
I received this as a free sample and was inttigued by the lack of SLS. I love how gentle it is, without drying chemicals! I feel clean after using it. I use it for my whole body.
The smell is not unpleasant but it doesn't smell like much of anything. It's fragrance free. This is probably much better and gentler for my skin, but with a name like "SweetSpot Labs", I thought it might smell sweet! It's hard to find body washes without extra ingredients that might irritate my skin, so I see the lack of fragrance as a plus.
I was hoping that the "microbiome balancing" aspect of this body wash would help me with a few patches of dermatitis on my skin, but so far it hasn't. I knocked 2 stars from that only because I haven't seen any difference in my skin than from using regular soap. Not yet.
I will continue to use this product as it is not irritating and I like the milder surfactants while still feeling clean.

Anyone who invest in their health (externally) as well as internally...This is product is definitely a must have!! Our skin is indeed the largest organ, why not take care of it properly!!! Its like Probiotics for the skin!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

I thought this would be the best one, but I actually prefer the pink tube. It lathers better and keeps my nooks and crannies smelling fresh longer. This one is nice, but it doesn't do anything the others don't. I have them all and this one lathers the worst. It's thicker so I have to use more of it to get a good lather and cleanse. I typically use it all over my body, but it's good as a spot cleanser as well (aka only on the areas of the body that trap odor). I won't buy the Microbiome wash again but will always keep the pink unscented one in my shower. It is the best.

I am very pleased with this body wash for intimate areas. It works for dryness and irritation in women of an age. Cleanses nicely in creases and underarm areas too.
Carmen from Michigan
I have been struggling to find a natural deodorant that works for several years now, someone suggested that it was actually a skin microbiome issue, and that I try this product. They were right. It's amazing. I never want to be without it.

10/10 just get it!

This product has cleared up my dry patches on my skin and also in between my butt where the skin rubs together including between my thighs and fupa area. (Just being honest)
Dillinger26 from Hudson Valley
This is a wonderfully gentle cleanser for sensitive or easily irritated skin. It clean skin well and rinses off completely, and the smell is very mild. I love everything about this product except the darn squeeze cap opening. Even with a fresh new tube, it takes a He-Man lifelike kung fu grip to dispense product. Checked to make sure nothing was blocking, and there isn't. On tube #4 now and still the same issue. I have to go in and shave off bits of plastic to make the dispense opening work better. Great cleaner, lovely to skin, but tube needs work.

I used Dove unscented soap for years and was starting to have an issue with it in my lady area. I found out online that the formula changed and didn't inform the public. I wanted something that was more ph balanced friendly and since I use Buff & Brighten, I looked to the other products that SweetSpot Labs offered. I found this wash and decided to buy it. Man was it GREAT! No more issues in my lady area and it's so gentle on my skin. I have recommended this product to my daughters and all of my friends.

I started using the green bottle two years ago after switching from the pink bottle. This one cleans my intimate areas without leaving behind any residue or smells and fully rinses off. I'm sensitive to fragrance and can get infections easily from certain "natural" ingredients. Pricey but well worth it. I use the size of a silver dollar and the bottle last me for around five months.

Works exactly as intended. I'm very sensitive below the belt and this product doesn't cause any irritation. Makes you feel very clean.
Kimberly from Undisclosed
This is a great wash for my special area! I occasionally get large bumps on the labia and mons that fill with fluid that become very painful. Don't seem to be associated with hair follicles, but I'm not sure. Since using this product, I have not suffered the bumps! I've been using Microbiome Balancing Wash since it came out, and it started working right away...healed the affected area and now prevents new flare ups.

Wanted to make a switch to something with better ingredients, very happy with this product. Doesn't leave skin feeling dry, and although there's no scent still smells clean.
Olivia from Undisclosed
It's not bad .
I will be buying this again

I have been using this body wash for about 3 weeks now. I have suffered from yeast spots on my skin for years, especially around my bra and back and this has cleared them all up! I am hooked and won't use anything else. My skin feels soft, clean and has cleared up.
Cierra from Virginia
I wanted to switch to a cleaner ingredient body wash (I was originally using Dove), and I also wanted to FEEL cleaner as well. I decided to give this product a shot, and I'm so glad I did!! I use this with the EarthTheraputics loofah, and my skin always feels so clean and soft after I shower.
Also! I've noticed a significant change in odor down there (a good change!)! Another point is that I struggle with tiny bumps on my face/forehead. This product had significantly helped it (I think it's fungal acne, and the anti-yeast ingredients in this product has helped tons)!!

Great for all your private spots!!
Richelle from Ny
I LOVE THIS BODY WASH. I also never leave reviews but I feel so clean and amazing that I have to share. My sense of smell has been off since having Covid and also being pregnant makes everything smell stronger and different. This has NO scent which is so refreshing for me because every body wash I've tried smells like straight chemicals or is just too overbearing to have on my body. FINALLY I WAS ABLE TO LATHER AND SUDS UP with this!!

So I've been dealing with boils on the outer skin of my girl since I was a teenager and it was horrible. Even if the boil would go away it always came back in the same spot, I mean for a decade in one spot. Now recently I tried this for the past two weeks without a towel( yes without one bc I don't want to chance that area getting affected at all) and it's been working. I had one boil in a new spot for the past year or two and it literally heal completely, like where I don't feel anything under the skin and it's as thought nothing was never there.I too use it for my underarms now… Sooooo happy… 😊

There is a reason this is highly rated on so many blogs. It actually does what it says all while being gentle. I don't care for the slight scent, but it works too well to not use it.
Makel from Undisclosed
Yes I love this . it makes you feel good . it's not to thick and not to milky
Mod from South Carolina
Reading what this Microbiome Balancing Full Body Cleanser does really intrigued me. I was a loyal customer to a different feminine wash, but I only used it for that. Despite being a loyal customer to this other brand, the odor free aspect never lasted long, but I conformed to it because I never found any other product that worked as well or better...until now! I picked this cleanser up for 2 reasons, the fact that it is for skin prone to bacterial and yeast imbalances and the second reason, that is for full body purposes. I have never suffered from yeast imbalance, but odors can be caused by bacteria and dead skin cells mixing with your sweat. I love natural deodorants, but sometimes I feel like I needed something extra and in the hot weather, suffering from humidititties is real! I ditched that other feminine wash that I was only using for that purpose, and I have now become a loyal customer to this product, because I really love that it is also working keeping me truly odor free everywhere. *Happy dance*

Katherine from Undisclosed
I suffer from frequent UTIs & this product has both decreased the regularity & duration of my symptoms. I absolutely love it. Would definitely recommend to anyone who has extreme sensitivity in their genital area.
Leelee from Michigan
If anyone has had sensitivity to products, or products that don't last down there this product is perfect. No smell all day, great for everyday use, really the only product I use down there on a regular. Have bought 3 times now.
