I had been skin problem-free all my life until I hit my teens and was hit with KP. It was so bad the first few years I had it — scratchy and inflamed arms with those stupid bumps. I was so uncomfortable and embarrassed of my arms that I mostly refused to wear tank tops or really short sleeved shirts. I tried several lotions and creams (prescription and non) to get rid of it, all to no avail.
Unfortunately there is no treatment for KP other than time. ANNOYING!
One day at work, I was browsing the sales on Hautelook.com, per usual, and saw Mario Badescu in their Beauty section. I’ve read a couple of glowing reviews on their drying lotion and was really contemplating getting one until this body wash caught my eye. I’ve never come across a body wash with Alpha Hydroxy Acids and it definitely helped that I only had to pay US$10 for a 16oz. bottle.
A.H.A. Botanical Body Soap
For those with KP, ingrown hair, or just some plain ‘ol exfoliation.
Lather and rinse. Easy Peasy!
I got mine from Hautelook for $10. So, no.
- This has a very subtle scent.
- Doesn’t feel ‘hard’ on the skin.
- Really does exfoliate pretty good.
- Not very expensive (even at regular price).
- Contains Sulfates.
- Might be too harsh for those with really sensitive skin.
The Bottom Line
Really great product. I would buy again and again. My bf, freshly sunburned from Punta Cana, used this not knowing it was an exfoliating body wash and his sunburn started to peel — and I mean PEEL off his body right after the shower. I was amazed!
And this has definitely helped to tone down my KP. Happy gal here!!
