I sometimes don't like shopping in a hurry. I see something and I am like, "Boy, how did I survive without this?!" and then I take it home and I think, "Wait, why did I buy this?!" >< And thanks to this, now I own over 6 body washes. Cosmedic Active Body Wash being the special one, 'cuz yes, my friend, this fellow helps handle body acne or bacne.
As a teenager, the onset of acne brought with the bacne. Though I don't suffer with it anymore, they do show their presence if the weather gets too hot.
PS: I used this as a face wash too ;)
So lets get on to the review already.

The Active Body Wash from Cosmedic comes in a green bottle with a white pump dispenser. Its travel friendly as the lock is secure and doesn't spill.
The body wash is very pale green in color and smells a pretty strong medicine-like but soothing smell. It doesn't hurt sensitive nose, tried and tested ;) Its runny and foams decent.
So does it do what it claims?
Yes, it does. It does help control acne and doesn't dry skin. Its mild on skin and I didn't experience any sort of irritation or burning. If you have severe acne, then you'll need extra medication to combat it. But if you experience mild/moderate acne, this body wash is lovely!
- It does dry out tiny pimples and acne.
- Soothes skin
- Non-drying on oily skin. Dry skinned girls, give me your inputs ;)
And the cons:
- Its a little expensive.
- Doesn't prevent acne, though it doesn't claim to prevent acne.
Do I recommend it?
Yea, if you suffer from mild acne and need a good wash that won't dry your skin.
PS: The product has been sent by the PR for review purposes. My opinions are honest, hand on heart.
