Through the years, I've been using my facial wash and scrub on my back and chest thinking it would do the same job. It sort of did but not to the extend that I wanted to. Then, I decided to try out some "fancy soaps", as I call it.
I first started with Botani's Eco-Clear Body Bar. It's specifically used for body acne and as general antiseptic. It's main ingredient is tea tree oil, which is a natural antibacterial. This soap is amazing! I love it how it gets rid and prevent pimples. This is a very good maintenance for those with extreme body acne.

But then, Botani got discontinued in Priceline. I had to find another alternative. Since tea tree oil's the main ingredient for the Botani soap, why not try a tea tree soap? :)

When I finished my stock of tea tree soap, I didn't know where to get some here in Canberra. Then came, Lush, my new supplier of fancy soaps. But since they didn't have tea tree soaps, I choose another alternative which is lemon. Lemon is one of the best natural cures for acne other than tea tree oil. Also, lemon helps you tone and clarify your skin tone too.
I first tried their Bohemian soap which is packed with lemon oil.
|Lush charges your per kilogram of soap that you get which is good because you have a say on how much you want to spend.|
I was honestly scared that it won't lather up. But it did! It wasn't too bad until it came to the part where what was left was the white stuff----You can see it in the photo. I forgot to ask what that was but whatever. It was really hard to soap my body because it wouldn't lather up as much. But regarding its acne fighting power, I put my hands down to this.
Now, I am using their Sexy Peel soap.
This soap is made out of oils and juices from different types of citrus fruits. Also, this soap has an exfoliating texture thanks to natural peels from oranges, limes, and lemons. Sounds good? It smells better! It;s so fresh and invigorating!
If I am not prone to acne, I'd love to try their oatmeal soap or their sultana soap. Both are said to be good if you want extra moisture for your skin.
Tips by Tippy:
Always do a patch test not only for soaps but also for any other product out there. Soaps are tricky because you apply it in your entire body. So be careful because you might be allergic to something that you're not aware of. And of course, drink LOTS of water.
