I read all the awesome reviews on here and my sister had the same to say about this product, so I decided to try it. HUGE MISTAKE! It made me bring out with huge, painful pimples. I kept using it thinking maybe this was a cleansing stage, but nope.. I used it for 3 or 4 months and it never changed. I now use regular cleanser and my bacne is getting better!

So I bought this body wash last summer but after a few uses, it just broke my back out more and dried my skin out so I stopped. Fast forward to feb 2013 and I picked this baby up again and used it every night in the shower along with my alpha hydrox lotion (check out my review for that too AWESOME) and now I can honestly say I love this body wash! The smell is nice, it makes me feel squeaky clean and it has seriously helped with my chest and back acne. I had moderate back acne and mild chest acne, I now have no chest or back acne at all just some hyperpigmentation that I'm tryna fade with other things so I'm hoping in another few months, my back will be totally clear marks and all! Oh yeah, the only downside to this is that I have to order it online via amazon coz its not available in any stores in the UK but I am so happy I discovered this regardless! Thank u makeupalley! X

I was reluctant to try this product as I likened it to the face wash version of this that had left my skin angry red and dry.
So upon reading good reviews on here I gave this a whirl. After nearly a week of using this, I am happy to report that I have had no further breakouts with this. It seems to be drying/clearing up present breakouts on my back.(I might add that my back breakouts are fairly minor but a concern nonetheless.)
I will update this with further use, as I hope it continues to work for me.
P.S. The smell is nothing at all. If you are treating your skin for a condition, you shouldn't be messing around with anything that contains additives for fragrance value. Update: After using this for a few weeks, I am left disappointed. It has minimized breakouts but not entirely cleared them up, plus it left my skin very dry. I have since gone back to using the Cetaphil gentle cleansing bar and that seems to be doing a better job without the dryness.

This is without a doubt the best product I have got for spots on my back and chest! I can't recommend it highly enough if you have trouble with those annoying spots on your back, shoulders and chest. Mine have cleared up completely in a few short months of using it. I've even started using it on my face and I've seen a huge improvement. It is also brilliant at clearing up red spots and razor bumps on my legs too. Because it has cleared up my spots I've also had a boost in confidence and I am able to wear strappy tops in the summer! :) The bottle has lasted me ages, I am still on my first bottle and I bought it a year ago. Unfortunately I can't buy it instore so I have to order it online from the US.

I bought this a couple weeks ago and this stuff has shown me better results than the body spray that I have been using for months (which btw cost me about 40 bucks). My biggest concern are the breakouts I get on my back. This body wash seems to work fairly well, but it hasn't cleared everything up. I will continue to use and see what kind of results I get. Also, other reviewers have complained about the smell being very medicinal and what not...but I think it smells fairly nice and fresh.

I am sooooooooooooooo happy with this product! It is unbelievable what it has done for my skin. For the longest time I had very bad back acne and after using this product for just two days I saw an immediate difference in my skin. The redness and irritation on my back had completely gone away (mind you, the pimples themselves were still present, they just weren't irritated.) I saw complete results within a few weeks of using the product. I use this product once a day in the shower with a back brush on my back, chest, shoulders and neck and it has never failed to keep my acne away. Thank you so much Neutrogena for such a great product!!

It's been awhile since i've purchased this product,so they may have changed the ingredients by now, but when i did use this product i saw no results, it's like it did nothing for me,it also didnt make anything worse ether thankfully.
the only good think about this product is that i like the warm orangey glow-y clear color of the product , and it smells ok,and it's not harsh on the body.
packaging: it could have been better,to bad it's not a pump bottle, it's just a normal squeezy bottle,they should also put grips on the bottle i remember it slipping out of my hand while i used it.
the reason i mark this so low is because it didnt improve my back at the time... any cheap shower gel could have done the same thing as this.
it was about 7.80 Canadian $ which is expensive for something that didnt even work for me. but i think it would be fine for any skin type as i have sensitive skin and didnt have any negative effects from it. maybe if your lucky it will work for you.

Yuck, yuck, yuck I hated the medicinal aweful smell of this. Had to make myself finish a full bottle of this, not at all a pleasure to use. Much prefer the grapefruit version that Neutrogena offers, it doesn't have the weird grit and smells fresh and fruity.

I don't really know if its working on my body acne yet, but I did see that the large red bumps have reduced in size, so this must be because of this body wash. I don't know why everyone is complaining about the smell, it does its job :)

This is an okay shower gel - it does leave you feeling squeaky clean and the packaging is fine. But it smells kinda weird and isnt super-luxurious feeling, which I like in a shower gel. I never really had a problem with body acne, so I probably shouldn't be using this anyway haha, but as it stands, wouldn't repurchase.

This product works great on my body acne! It didn't clear it up until around 3 weeks but after that any acne that I did get went away quickly, so I'm fine with that. But one bad thing is that it smells kind of funny to me.

Kind of spendy for a drugstore product (at least where I'm at.) But it foams up nicely, does seem to help my acne, though it's not a miracle product. It helps prevent the weird cystic acne that I get in random places, but doesn't seem to do much for tiny acne bumps on my upper arms, etc.
I do find it very pleasant to shower with, especially with a Salux cloth, and I love the scent - sort of a spicy, clean scent.
I've switched to baby wash for the time being for simplicity's sake, but if that doesn't work out, this is my go-to body wash. I'll stock up if it goes on sale :)
ETA: Much cheaper to buy in the US. I love this stuff - using the baby wash didn't hold a candle to it. This smells better, and helps my skin more.

First off, it's $8 and lasts me around 2 weeks probably. Usually body washes last me longer than that, but whatever. The packaging, when you're running out of the product, it's very hard to get out of the bottle! The product is extremely thick. Now onto the actual working power of the product. I had a lot of acne on my back and it was bad. It took me around 2 months to see results with this product, and I would use it everyday. I went through 2-3 bottles before I saw results. My back still isn't the best that it could be, but it's getting there. I still get breakouts from time to time but they go away quickly. Overall, I would recommend this body wash but only if you have the patience for it!

This REALLY cleared up my skin!I love this product. It made my body feel so fresh and clean! I have a small amount of bumpy acne right under my neck (think shoulder-blades), between my breasts, and like two on my butt (ugh). I also have these weird red/white bumpy rash-like area on my upper arms, so... I don't know if that's acne or a rash, but I've had it forever. More than 5 years. Nothing could get rid of it. Another reason why I love it - it greatly reduced the dry, flaky, gross look of my strange arm acne-rash deal.

I decided to try this since Neutrogena decided to discontinue (or maybe temporarily cease production of) its Acne Stress Control Power Cream Body Wash. I really didn't like this product. My skin felt too dry and my body acne started to make a comeback, especially on my chest. This product also contains triclosan, which is an ingredient I try to steer clear from. Triclosan seems to cause excessive dryness on my hands when I use antibacterial hand soaps, plus I have concerns about that ingredient in general. I'm passing over this body wash in the future.

This dried out my skin horribly and I broke out with more acne. This cleanser should probably be paired with a moisturizer because I have a feeling it disrupts the skin's moisture barrier. I used this in the summertime because that's when I wear more revealing tops, but I don't use moisturizer in the summer because it gets really hot and a moisturizer would be potentially pore-clogging.
I did however use it in my hair and it was a fantastic shampoo. I think I have SD and this alleviated my itchiness and dandruff, as well as made my hair super soft and a little bit lighter in colour.

I don't have body acne but I figured this stuff would prevent it and exfoliate a bit. I didn't like it. I felt it left a film on my skin and dried it out. Would not repurchase.

I have to admit, this did not clear my acne up the way I thought it would. It doesn't really get rid of existing pimples but it prevents you from getting more (hopefully that makes sense) But I have seen a huge improvment in the redness of my skin!!!! My chest isnt a bright red anymore like it used to be! I would buy this again because it makes my skin feel really clean, unlike body washes that add extra moisture. Beware of the smell!!!!!!!!!!!

If this is supposed to clear acne then why does it cause MORE acne??? I had a few bumps on my chest i wanted to clear so i bought this and within a few days my back/ chest is breaking out like crazy. My back was totally clear before using this product. Could kick myself for buying this. I WILL NOT buy again. Oh, and it stinks. Who would want to use a body wash that smells like this?

Okay so I bought this to clear out the breakouts on my back and chest Ive had it for about 2-3 weeks and so far, it's kinda making me break out more. I mean I know it's going to get worse before it gets better, but seriously? I just hope it works, or no summer tops for me. :( Hoefully aomething better I can use. Probably won't be buying it again.
