A glycolic acid body wash is a wonderful way to cleanse your skin and remove impurities, while exfoliating dead skin cells and increasing the penetration of subsequent skincare products.

It's especially useful if you have keratosis pilaris, rough skin, red bumps, or body acne.

In this post, I'll discuss how to choose a glycolic acid body wash and my top recommendations for the best glycolic acid body washes! 😀


What Is The Best Glycolic Acid Body Wash?

Here are my top recommendations:

  1. Editor's Choice: Glytone Exfoliating Body Wash
  2. Best for Keratosis Pilaris: Glytone 3-Piece KP Kit
  3. Best for Silky Smooth Skin: First Aid Beauty Bump Eraser Body Scrub
  4. Best Budget Pick: Alpha Skin Care Moisturizing Body Wash Sea Mist
  5. Best Value for Money: Platinum Skin Care Glycolic & Lactic Body Wash
  6. Professional Body Scrub: DERMAdoctor KP Duty Body Scrub
  7. 100% Natural Body Wash: Mario Badescu A.H.A. Botanical Body Soap

And the result?

Softer, smoother, and KP-free skin with fewer blemishes and more even skin tone. 🤗

Glytone Exfoliating Body Wash is oil-free and works into a rich lather that deeply cleanses and leaves your skin feeling fresh & smooth while reducing blemishes and pigmentation.

For best results, apply Glytone with a loofah to save on product and physically exfoliate the surface of your skin and enhance the penetration of the glycolic acid.

My Verdict: Make KP, body blemishes, and body pigmentation a part of your past using Glytone Exfoliating Body Wash with 8.8% free acid value. For even better results, use together with Glytone Exfoliating Body Lotion with 17.5% free acid value in Glytone 3-Piece KP Kit.

My Verdict: Let First Aid Beauty help erase your rough skin, red bumps, and body blemishes with 10% glycolic and lactic acids plus pumice buffing beads for maximum exfoliation.

Alternatively, if you're looking for the best value for money, I recommend Platinum Skin Care which uses 15% glycolic and lactic acids and is reasonably priced.

My Verdict: While Alpha Skin Care is a popular and affordable option, it provides glycolic acid in "name only" (0.22% free acid value), limiting its use to a regular shower gel.

You can use this luxurious glycolic body wash for all body concerns, including keratosis pilaris, rough skin texture, sagging skin, dry knees and elbows, cracked heels, and more!

My Verdict: Get the best value for money with Platinum Skin Care Glycolic & Lactic Body Wash, featuring 15% glycolic and lactic acids, vitamins, and fruit fragrance.

Meanwhile, evening primrose, black currant, and borage seed oils, high in linoleic acid, help restore skin hydration and soothe sensitivity.

Finally, azelaic acid helps brighten dark spots while green tea extract reduces inflammation.

Overall, a great option to keep your skin feeling smooth & toned (even as you get older).

My Verdict: DERMAdoctor has prescribed KP Duty Body Scrub for your "lizard skin" with a blend of AHAs, BHAs, PHAs, and soothing botanicals to restore healthy & youthful skin.

My Verdict: Create an unforgettable spa experience with A.H.A. Botanical Body Soap featuring grapefruit and papaya enzymes, ginseng, and linden tree, to cleanse your body and mind.
