I originally tried this body wash because I enjoyed the face wash so much on those sleepy, can't get going type mornings. I have problems with breakouts on my upper arms during the winter, and I was hopeful this body wash would help clear them up as well as give me a energy boost. Effectiveness The body wash is very refreshing and invigorating, but it did nothing for my complexion after 3 weeks of use. My skin is dry in the winter and this body wash made it much worse. After just one week my skin became flaky and dull. I was using twice as much lotion to control the uncomfortable itchy feeling and it did not get better after continued use. I may have put up with the drying effect if it had helped the breakouts, but I saw no improvement. Scent The scent is the only reason I continued to use this body wash. It helps me to wake up quicker in the mornings and gives me a small boost of energy to help me start my day. It is a somewhat girly and fruity scent, not something I really want as a perfume, but it does a great job of jolting my senses and helping me to feel refreshed.
