And its rich, foaming lather rinses completely without leaving behind pore-clogging residue, so your skin is left feeling clean.

how to use

  • Use daily in the shower or bath
  • For maximum lather, massage over wet skin with a washcloth or body puff, concentrating on areas prone to breakouts.
  • Rinse well.

Body Clear® Body Wash is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I Really Like It! I have oily and acne prone skin and this really works. My body has become less oily and has less acne. The only reason I didn't give this five stars is because, I have a pretty sensitive face and it makes my face burn.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Used for years, not working anymore I've used this product for almost as long as it's been available. It worked GREAT. I get acne on my chest and back, and occasionally on my face. Using this product, my acne and breakouts disappeared, besides a lone zit every blue moon. I would use it with baking soda and witch hazel. However, for the past few months, its effectiveness has decreased. My back acne is back, and now I'm getting acne on my arms. Any advice or pointers would be appreciated.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product, Horrible Staining I have been using this product for about two weeks straight now, every single night after my Aveeno sensitive skin body wash. I only use it on my chest area, as I have little bumps there. The bumps went away, but my skin gained a new characteristic. It's orange! I am very pale and my skin is very sensitive, so the change in color is very noticeable. This is just a warning for anyone else who is extremely pale because regular use of it will most likely stain your skin. I look like I went a tanning bed that just tanned my chest. PS I do love the smell and how my skin feels after....just not the fact that it's orange.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my life! This product worked soooo fast! Before I knew it all my back and chest acne was gone! I now completely trust neutrogena products... Both their acne products saved me from a lot of embarrassment. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Less breakouts I never knew when my body acne started forming but when they did I died a bit inside. I had to wear less clothing that revealed my back and chest because of acne. AND THEN IT SPREAD TO MY SHOULDERS. I was actually shopping for a different Neutrogena product at Rite-Aid (I didn't find it unfortunately), but there was a sale so I bought this. It is early in the second week of use and I've been showering with it twice daily. I have no acne on my back and breakouts have been becoming infrequent. (yes!). I had a red bump on my chest and small pimples on my arm during the first week and that concluded my breakout (which I found amusing but they must've came because of sweat). After showering with it, they were gone in two days. I have dark spots on my back, chest, and shoulders from acne and though some slightly faded because of the wash, I don't think it's the purpose to cure them so I'll be looking for another product to use with the wash. I'm also planning on buying the Body Scrub as an exfoliant because I have high hopes that this will do wonders. Being a woman of color, I also have dark bumps on my legs. It's called strawberry legs and it took me forever to find the actual scientific name so I can treat them. They're actually blackheads so I'm playing close attention to see if the wash does something about these too or if I have to find another product. Bottom line, this is a great wash and I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great For Acne Prone Skin! I use to use Body Clear® Body Wash when I was younger because I had really bad acne on my face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders and it was the only non-prescription product that would help. I stopped using it because I was on the pill and it helped clear up my acne. I'm currently off the pill and my acne is back, so I thought I'd start using Body Clear® Body Wash again. It's only been a week and I can tell a difference on my chest, shoulders, and back. My only complaint is that I feel like it dries up my skin, but I know it's doing it's job to try to get rid of the acne. I absolutely recommend this product for anyone with acne!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Noticeably less breakouts! I used the pink grapefruit body wash 1-2 years ago which didn't work much for me, so I was reluctant to buy this. I've already used this for about a month and I'm pleased with the results! My back, chest, and arms have significantly less breakouts and even the hyperpigmentation left by acne is clearing up as well. My body never felt so smooth after my body got awful breakouts and I'm so thankful for this product, and I'm thinking of using the body spray in addition to my body acne regimen. Maybe in a few months I can expect almost clear skin. I really recommend trying this product, whether you have just a few pimples on your back or, like me, have bad body acne. Also, remember to sleep in a different shirt every night, change pillow and bed covers as often as possible, and shower every day. It also helps to use an acne body scrub and whitening serum. Good luck!!!
