Affordable Solutions for Chest & Back Acne/Bacne

Affordable Solutions for Chest & Back Acne/Bacne

I’ve been asked so many times about back acne. Most of them were teens so I wanted this list to feature affordable products. I still get bacne, one or two blemishes when it’s the time of the month. Here’s a list to help you reduce them while lightening the spots.

Kojie San Kojic Acid Soap

images-1I always recommend this because it’s effective. I personally use this and I like it. It dries up zits quickly and prevents dark spots. Hyperpigmentation is another problem with chest and back acne. Why not solve two problems at the same time, right? Look for a product with dual-function to get your money’s worth. You can get it for as low as 50 pesos depending on the weight and set quantity.

Belo Tranexamic Kojic Soap

It has dual function too; treats and whitens. Belo is one of the most famous clinics in the Philippines. Luckily, we dont have to get it in their clinic. It’s sold in supermarkets and drugstores too. It’s 60 pesos per bar.

Snoe Shoozit Spray Me From Behind


It fights body blemishes with Anti-Acne PUREFIX-DC and pore-clearing Salicylic Acid. These powerful antibacterial agents purify skin from head-to-toe for an acne-fighting advantage wherever you need it. It is gentle enough for daily use. It’s 349 pesos for 100ml.

DIY Salicylic & Tea Tree Spray

If you’re masipag, you can make your own bacne spray. Get a spray bottle and pure salicylic acid at the drugstore. Rhea is famous for that. There’s below 20 pesos, 40 pesos depending on the size. Affordable, isn’t it? They have 10% salicylic acid. I wont recommend using it alone since it’s strong. Mix it with water and estimate how concetrated you’d like it to be. Dont forget to do a patch test first.

A mild option is tea tree spray. I recommend Human Nature’s Tea Tree Heritage Oil. It’s 295 pesos for 30ml. Mix it with water. You can use the oil alone if someone can apply it for you…. Cause it’s quite difficult to reach our back area.

You can also try apple cider vinegar spray. Mix it with water because it’s strong too. ACV smells quite funky so consider that if you’re sensitive to scents. The most raved ACV of Bragg’s is available in Healthy Options for 230 pesos.

I hope this will be helpful to someone out there. I know you guys are searching this topic. I can see it in my stats. Haha. What’s your favorite anti-acne treatment? We’d like to know. πŸ˜‰

By the way, I updated my list of Face Masks Under 500 pesos for Oily and Acne Prone Skin. Click here to read it.

I’ve included the prices so you can select which one fits your budget.

Review: RHEA Salicylic Acid 10% Solution

Review: RHEA Salicylic Acid 10% Solution

Good evening readers! I hope you are having a great Saturday. Tonight’s review is about my current spot treatment for acne. Let’s see if this works for me.

I’m in search for the best spot treatment and a member of my facebook group recommended this one. I thought it might be effective plus it’s really affordable compared to other products. I finally decided to buy this because I want to minimize spending on pimple injections for cystic acne and facials for small ones. Of course, I still do that but for cystic ones only.

Here’s the packaging:

Here’s a tip:
– Use a cotton bud and dab the product on the pimple.
– To minimize the sting, stay in front of a fan just like what doctors do when you have
chemical peels
– Buy the smallest size because it’s sensitive to air, see the cap above.

– Comes in three sizes. This one’s 60 ml at PHP 35.25 (I bought this because it’s the smallest size at the store that time)
– Available at Mercury Drugstores and I also saw this is available at Puregold supermarket.
– Can be used for acne and warts
– This is concentrated, pure salicylic acid
– Helps to dry up pimples
– It does help to remove pimples
– I actually like the peeling of the skin because it helps to minimize the appearance of my hyperpigmentation

– It stings more compared to other spot treatments I’ve tried (of course it’s pure)
– Doesn’t do much on cystic acne (dry up or remove)
– Can spill so make sure to store it in a safe place

Overall, Im still satisfied with this because it helps to minimize those pesky pimples. The peeling of the pimples and around them make a difference. The hyperpigmentation is lighter compared to other spot treatments I’ve used. It would’ve been better if it can dry up my cystic acne on cheeks. If it does, it will surely be my holy grail. πŸ™‚
