The Best Body Wash for Acne Prone Skin

The best body wash for acne prone skin is both affordable and effective.

A few years ago I was looking for a body wash that wouldn't break me out. I tried a tea tree oil body wash, and it worked, but the smell was too strong for my liking. The same was true for a tea tree oil bar soap sold at Whole Foods. I was also prescribed a body wash by my dermatologist, but this dried my skin out too much.

Then along came Burt's Bees with a body wash for oily skin.

Burt's Bees Extra Energizing Citrus and Ginger Root Body Wash is a total splash.

Effectiveness and Natural Composition

It is the only mass-market body wash that has never broken me out. Not only that, it helps clear up acne already on your skin.

Those of you who are already familiar with Burt's Bees products will recognize the imprint on the bottom of the product label where it lists the percentage of the ingredients that are natural. On this body wash it is 99.2%.

That is amazing considering that commercial acne-prone body washes always contain a man-made chemical that controls acne.

Scent and Performance

The Citrus and Ginger Root Body Wash smells like crystallized ginger candy with a squeeze of orange.

If you love this candy and the smell of freshly peeled orange in the air, you will love this product. This body wash lathers very well and also washes away without leaving residue on your skin.
