    loved the product and results. By the third week I had zero acne on my chest. I also appreciated how it didn't smell too strong and also didn't burn horribly when you sprayed it on any acne. *This person tested samples for three weeks pre-launch.

    I would recommend this product to: Similar to me, I would recommend this product to people who workout often and end up getting their workout tops fairly sweaty. That's a big cause of my chest acne but this has helped it tremendously.

    Overall I'm very happy with the product. I'm starting to see significant results and hope they continue as I use the rest of the Clearing Mist. From the first use I noticed a difference in the texture of my skin and the amount of breakouts. It's only gotten better the more I've used it. This is the first product that I've used where I've seen real results and I'm so excited about it after dealing with back and body acne for almost 15 years! *This person tested samples for three weeks pre-launch.

    I really like this product! It is very easy to use- I just spray it on acne-prone spots on my body (particularly my butt) when I've gotten out of the shower, then proceed with my routine like normal. It dries quickly and doesn't leave any residue on my clothes, even if I put them on while my skin is still a bit damp. Although it is fragrance free, the tea tree in it gives it a nice medicinal smell that I enjoy. It didn't radically change the texture of the skin on my butt, but I definitely saw a reduction in acne lesions over 3 weeks of consistent use. *This person tested samples for three weeks pre-launch.

    I love how easy it is to use, no rubbing in or anything (which is hard when it's your back!) My acne is definitely still present on my back, but it's doing a lot better and I expect it to keep getting better as i use it! *This person tested samples for three weeks pre-launch.

    This product is an easy addition to my post-shower routine that drastically reduced redness and breakouts on my back and chest. I really noticed it was working because the spots I missed when spraying were continuing to breakout while the surrounding skin was looking good. *This person tested samples for three weeks pre-launch.

    i used the mist every day when i got out of the shower. Smells great, dries quickly, and sprays easily from all angles which i appreciate since i am trying to spray my own back. Mist completely cleared up my shoulders and evened out the tones of past marks from acne so quickly. The only spots that still broke out just a little bit were the hardest for me to reach in the middle of my back but the product works great. *This person tested samples for three weeks pre-launch.

    ​​absolutely love this mist! after struggling with body acne since puberty, i've tried many products over the years. concentrated acids would dehydrate or cause irritation. medicated cream for fungal acne would trigger my rosacea. it seemed impossible for a product to solve the litany of skin issues i deal with. this mist is effective AND soothing to my sensitive skin. i love the clean scent, ease of use and notable results. after 2 weeks my body acne was clear and redness calmed. will definitely be ordering more! *This person tested samples for three weeks pre-launch.

    The Clearing Mist helped to reduce some large, deep acne I had on my stomach and smaller bumps under the bra line.

    This product took some time before I felt like it helped with any of my body acne, but after 3 weeks, the breakouts that I’ve consistently had on my back were as clear as they had been in a year. I’ve tried other body acne sprays as well as dermatologist prescribed products that didn’t do as much for body breakouts. As long as you’re patient and use this every other day or so, you should see results. *This person tested samples for three weeks pre-launch.

    I really liked this product! It's a new-to-me idea to use a mist to target acne on the body. It's super easy to use and easy to incorporate into your routine after you're dry from the shower. I liked how the mist doesn't have a fragrant smell at all. I also really liked how the mist doesn't leave you feeling sticky. *This person tested samples for three weeks pre-launch.

    Loved that is was light and not sticky with a light "earthy" smell from the tea tree. I did find that when I consistently used it (daily and sometimes twice a day) it prevented and got rid of chest and back acne that happens to me during hot, sticky summer months! Would definitely purchase since it seems like a bottle would last a decent amount of time - even using a spritz twice a day! *This person tested samples for three weeks pre-launch.

    I don't get a ton of body breakouts, but when I do they're big and painful. I used the acne mist on my back every other day for three weeks, whether I had active breakouts or not. Although the mist didn't seem to prevent acne from forming for me (especially around my period), I noticed that the breakouts would heal much faster than usual (within 1-2 days). I also appreciate how fast the product dries on my back so I can get dressed quickly after my shower. *This person tested samples for three weeks pre-launch.

    Overall this product helped control small blemishes and oil control. It can be very drying with regular use though. The smell is mild enough. And the spray application is convenient for quick body use. However, depending on where you're applying it, it can sometimes travel towards eyes/nose and become irritating. *This person tested samples for three weeks pre-launch.

    This product is amazing! Things I love: It's quick & easy to use & fits into my already long skincare routine. It works quickly (like overnight fast) to clear up breakouts & smooth skin. The spray bottle mists large areas perfectly & evenly with just one or two spritzs. Things that were just okay: It's not a miracle product in terms of preventing new breakouts caused by other factors (sunscreen/chlorine). Things that sucked: Just one, the smell. It is really medicinal and made my eyes water/throat burn. I had to step out of my bathroom to use it each time in order to be able to carry on with the rest of my routine. Not a huge deal but kind of annoying. Overall, recommend! *This person tested samples for three weeks pre-launch. Soft Services products were provided as compensation for their honest review.

    I feel like I'd have to keep using the product to get a better idea if it'll work for me in the long run. When I started using it I was under a lot of stress from a move and the hot sweaty weather in NY didn't help either. I don't think it made my body acne a lot better or any worse. Overall I think if I keep using it for another month I'd get a better idea if it's the right product for me. *This person tested samples for three weeks pre-launch.
