For awhile I was using the Kate Somerville product I wrote about the other day on my back for my hot yoga-induced acne (the second I stop using the body brush on my Clarisonic damn bumps appear..meh..), but it’s not cost effective. Even though the bottle only costs $22 it’s tiny. So after chatting with an SA at Sephora for a bit I bought Peter Thomas Roth’s Blemish Buffing Beads For Face and Body. For starters it smells a whole lot better than Somerville’s product because it doesn’t have sulfur in it…in fact it actually smells kind of citrus-y and nice. The wash works double-duty to exfoliate with tiny, gentle beads (so gentle in fact that you can use this product on your face – though I’ve only used it for my body), which means it works for every day use. I’ve been using it for the last several months and even though at $36 it’s not cheap with 8.5oz it lasts relatively long (I’m only on my second bottle), and it does a fantastic job at treating and preventing acne without irritating or drying skin. It’s also way more convenient than using my Clarisonic body brush – I will say that nothing is more effective than the Clarisonic, but it can be a pain to use on your back!
