What Is It:


This superfine, easy-to-use mist treats and prevents body acne—wherever it may pop up. Its 360-degree continuous spray (which comes in a non-aerosol bottle) gets even the hardest-to-reach spots, with a thin, even layer no less. With a fast drying time and no residue left on clothing, spray on the back, chest, bum—literally wherever you spot an unwelcome visitor, you’re covered.


Our insight:


The powerful yet soothing combination of OTC-strength 2% salicylic acid, tea tree oil, and witch hazel fights bacteria and controls excess oil. The anti-inflammatory properties also relieve inflammation and soothe redness. The formula really works (and fast, too), but its bottle and its unique delivery system that make this product a star.


How to use:


  • Hold the bottle about a foot and a half away from your body and spray onto clean, dry skin in the AM and/or PM.
  • Let it sink in for 30-60 seconds before getting dressed. Don’t worry—it won’t stick to or stain your clothes.
  • Can also be used after a workout when you don’t have time to shower off to kill bacteria.
  • Mist the inside of your face covering to help prevent bacteria and thus maskne.


Ingredients:


Key Ingredients: Salicylic Acid (2%): The gold standard in fighting acne, this beta hydroxy acid exfoliates the skin and treats acne by reducing swelling and redness and unplugging blocked pores.

I recently had the chance to try Versed Back-Up Plan Acne Control Mist and I liked it. I do not suffer from body acne most of the time. I live in a humid, tropical climate and I ride my bike to get around the city, so I occasionally break out on my back and a little on my bum.
I sprayed the product on clean, dry skin after a shower. It has a mild scent, which is nice, and it isn’t sticky like products I’ve tried in the past. It feels a little slick immediately after spraying and dries down... Read more

Versed Back-Up Plan Acne Control Body Mist is not one of my favorite products from Versed. I really wanted to like this because I do break out on occasion on my back and back of my arms. This didn’t really seem to help that much. I did like the spray delivery and how it felt when applying it but I felt a bit of a residue on my skin after application which is probably from the tea tree oil. The scent is almost nothing and I really liked that too since I’m very sensitive to fragrance. I feel like... Read more

In the past few years, “Backcials” and “Fanny Facials” have become increasingly popular among my clients. Respectively, these are treatments just like a facial for your back and bum. For most of the time these areas are covered by clothing which protects our skin from harmful UVA rays and premature aging. But sweating, wearing layers of clothes during the winter, being a teenager with mild to moderate acne (backne), or hormonal breakouts can wreak havoc on our skin. VERSED Back-Up Plan Acne-Control Body Mist addresses all of these challenges. 2% salicylic... Read more

So unique and different. I have never come across a product like this. A first of its kind!
Versed has brought a major innovation to the world of skincare. The back- up plan acne- control body mist was designed to address body blemishes. It contains 2% salicylic acid. This key ingredient aides in skincare exfoliation, fighting acne and removing dirt, bacteria and buildup.
This is especially beneficial for those hard to reach places on your neck and back. There is a very slight scent as it calms the skin. It is great... Read more

Versed Back- Up plan Acne- Control body Mist is pure genius. I would have never thought to make a vegan based acne mist for the body. It helps to prevent unwanted bacteria. I am so happy that this product is available to anyone. This is a must have especially now that many wear face masks. I love how this product helps soothe redness and relieves inflammation. This spray is very affordable too at $14.99. You can't beat this!! I have been a cosmetologist for over 10 years and have never experienced an acne mist like that this one. When... Read more

Versed has created a body spray that contains 2% Salicylic Acid to aid in reducing blemishes and preventing breakouts. Being an esthetician that encounters back acne quite often, I am ecstatic to get the chance to test out this product. I use it as instructed on the bottle and with consistent use, my back acne has subsided. Though not completely diminished, the spray did aid in reducing inflammation and swelling of active breakouts. The Back-Up Plan Acne Control Body Mist has no fragrance and dries quickly onto the skin. It comes in a transparent bottle with a continuous nozzle that... Read more

I am a stylist and have been in the industry for almost 18 years now, I have tried A LOT of products over the years for both business and personal. I have never come across a body mist that is used for acne prone skin. I do have to say the idea is genius especially for men as well since they tend to get some acne on their back, or chest from just simply shaving. I’ve found this to be used as a great toner and even setting my makeup before I apply it. It is refreshing, it has a... Read more

The Versed Acne Control Mist is the perfect addition to any body care routine. It's especially perfect is you are someone who works out, or is active outside and sweats a lot. We all know how that can really break you out if you have acne prone skin. I keep this is my hiking bag actually any use it as needed. It also helps to coll me down and it smells amazing! The continuous spray ( which is a non-aerosol bottle) making it super easy to use on the whole body, especially on the back! It can be used at... Read more

This product is wonderful! It is like a jack of all trades. You can use it for body blemishes, as a post workout spray and it is so easy to use. It has a super fine mist with a 360° continuous spray and it is fast drying. When I first got this product I was amazed that it is a continuous spray and it is not an aerosol! It leaves absolutely no residue. The smell is phenomenal, it is a tea tree smell but not an overpowering smell. You can keep this in your gym bag and use it after... Read more

This product is a must to add to your gym bag! It features salicylic acid to help treat body acne. However, I do not usually have breakouts below the neck and I have still found this product to be beneficial. The salicylic acid fights bacteria, which is why spraying this product after a workout is great if you cannot shower right away. It contains tea tree oil which helps to prevent blemishes from forming and control oil in the skin, and witch hazel to tighten the skin and reduce redness and shine. As someone with experience in beauty retail, I... Read more
