I read the magazine reviews and bought it based on them. It does the job. I'm a runner and during the summer between sunscreen, road dirt and sweat I need something to help me avoid breakouts. My chest and tummy breakout (weird Iknow). Love the smell can't say the microbeads are good or bad but I would try it again.
Let me say this, the grapefruit products smell amazing. But for my skin type, that's they only positive.
I have moderate acne on my chest, and this stuff just isn't strong enough. I much prefer the Stress Relief Body Was, but it's been discontinued.
I would totally recommend this for those who have less acne pron skin or whose skin doesn't need that high of a medication percentage.
I LOVE THIS!!!
It does an amazing job for body acne, getting rid of everything w/ each use and fading spots! It smells wonderful, lathers up SO much, and just is a really great product for me! I do highly recommend it!!
I have acne... on my face and my back and chest (yay... NOT!)
I find there are several factors that affect my body that may be a little different than my face.
Cleanlyness of my clothes, bedding, and I have long hair, so if it's greasy it affects my back.
Regularly washing my laundry (I have a very labor intensive job, so I sweat lot). Changing sheets regularly. (becusae when you sleep you give off oils)
But this scrub in my lupha work awesome! It gets rid of any acne without overdrying and it smells great! But I have to shower every day (yay oily skin... NOT!)
but if that's what I have to do in order to keep my oil in control.
I've been a faithfull user for months now.
I find it just doesn't keep the acne at bay.
I like how it smells and a feel clean afterwards, but I still get acne on my back a lot.
I am back in the market looking for a better body scub.
I have been using this product for a few years, and for these few years I have been relatively body blemish free. As soon as I began using this product, it cleared up my skin and helped keep it clear. I wish I could find something for my face that worked half as well as this did! Alas, the only thing I hate is that it's always a struggle for me when it comes down to the last inch of the product. But as long as this continues working, I will struggle away! I could not recommend this highly enough if you have body blemishes.
First off I'm going to say why I rated this product a three. The reason is, when I first started using it, it was doing great for about 2-3 weeks. My break outs were going away on my body every where. I thought it was great. So right around the 4th week of using it, I noticed that I was starting to get a rash underneath my breast. Actually, it's not even a rash. It's just a darker color than it should be. I thought that was kind of strange.
So my advice to people who are going to use it for the first time, do not think it's not working if you've only used it for a week. Sometimes you may break out after a week but trust me if you keep using it, it will go away. And another thing, if your skin becomes dry right after using it, you're suppose to put lotion on or the dryness will make your skin even worse than it was.
This is a great product but it's not for everyone.
I have moderate/severe acne on my chest and back (:/), and I used this daily for 4 weeks, every day followed by the body clear spray. At first, it really started to clear stuff up! ....but then I noticed that it stayeddd at an awesome-breakthrough product's first week stage. Like it looked like it was going to be a promising product after one week, but then the condition stayed exactly the same.
So, I can really only say that it helps, and helps me stop breaking out. However, it really doesn't get my acne to the level of like..."clear". And obviously, that's what I'm looking for!
So disappointing, I was really looking forward to this one! :(
I'm half way through the bottle & I still don't see any results. It does not exfoliate my skin. Poor product, but it does smell nice.
It really doesn't do anything to my skin. The smell is nice, not overbearing. I do like grapefruits so maybe that's why I can stand the smell, unlike my sister. It's very foamy and cleans well. It just doesn't clear up my acne. I have it on my shoulders, back, and chest (mild). Instead, I think it only made it a bit worse on my shoulders and a little bit better on my back. However for the price ($7) I would not purchase again, especially since it really doesn't help me.
This is the only body wash I use on my back, I have very bad breakouts at times and I put this on a back scrub brush and go to town..I use everyday and can most definitely tell when I don't use it or skip days. I have bought many bottles but at times if I can't find it I'll buy the face wash (same thing without the "beads") and use that on my body. Also good for ingrown hairs as another person said. The smell is refreshing and not overpowering, much better then chemical smells of other anti-acne products. I will keep buying this until I find something better.
