If you’re dealing with stubborn skin irritation caused by sweating, shaving, or waxing, you need to read this Miami Beach Bum Body Cream review.
This post was updated on Nov. 16, 2021.
I was 11 the first time someone made fun of my back acne.
I was wearing my bathing suit under a pair of shorts, ready to board the bus that would take a group of kids to swim lessons.
Then I heard a boy yell at me in front of everyone: “Hey Zit Back!”
I don’t remember what I did in that moment, but I remember exactly how I felt.
Embarrassed. Ashamed. Ready to skip swim lessons and run all the way back home.
More than 25 years later, that humiliation is as fresh as if it happened yesterday.
It’s so fresh because I still struggle with back acne.
So when Miami Beach Bum reached out and asked if they could send me their Bum + Body Cream to try, I thought, “Heck yeah!” My back acne had been horrible for a good 10 months, and I’d been struggling with shaving bumps on the back of my legs.
In this blog post, I share how the Miami Beach Bum lotion worked on my back acne and the folliculitis on the backs of my legs. Scroll to see my Miami Beach Bum before and after photos, and keep reading for a discount code!

Miami Beach Bum Body Cream is a great product to help with skin problems caused by factors like sweating and shaving. It greatly reduced my back acne after nine weeks of use.
What is Miami Beach Bum?
Miami Beach Bum was founded by Ayssa DiPietro Goldwasser after she struggled to find a clean solution to the folliculitis she developed on her bum from spending a lot of time in wet bathing suits. As a marine scientist, she used her chemistry background to create a product using plant-based ingredients that balance the skin’s microbiome and protect the skin’s barrier.
The products are vegan and certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny. Miami Beach Bum sources ingredients and packaging completely within the United States, and they blend and package their products in Miami, Fla.
While the Bum and Body Cream is their signature product, they also offer two face creams (The Facial in a Jar and Ski Bum), a face and body spritzer, a natural bug repellant, and a leave-in hair shield.
Bum and Body Cream Ingredients
Wondering about the Environmental Working Group’s rating for the Miami Beach Bum Bum + Body Cream? The product isn’t in the Skin Deep database, so I ran the ingredients through the “Build Your Own Report” tool and it gave me an approximate score of 2.
The Miami Beach Bum cream is available in three scents: lemongrass, mint, and orange.
How To Use the Bum and Body Cream
Apply the cream in the morning and at night to clean, dry skin. Some body cleansers I like to use before applying the Miami Beach Bum lotion include Aleavia’s Enzymatic Body Cleanse or any of Little Seed Farm’s soaps.
I saw the best results when I washed my back and legs twice a day (yes, two showers), but I found myself getting lazy after a while and not washing twice. But cleansing twice a day makes sense if you have skin irritations on your body. We do it for our faces, so why not wash our bums and bodies twice a day, too?
My Miami Beach Bum Bum and Body Cream Review
I’m so embarrassed by these pictures, but here are the Miami Beach Bum before and after photos of my back acne. You can visibly see the difference on my back after nine weeks of use.
While it’s not completely clear, the lotion helped a lot more than anything else I’ve tried. I also believe that the remaining acne will only clear up with changes to my diet (which I’ve already started).

- It reduced my back acne and smoothed the backs of my legs. I still have irritation on my legs, but they feel so much smoother.
- It’s a large container at 6 ounces, so it should last you a while if you’re using it on a targeted area.
- It’s not greasy!
- I really don’t like the lemongrass scent, which reminded me a bit of Pledge cleaner. I like the mint a lot better. But I’ve also read some reviews online where people love the lemongrass smell.
- The scents are strong. Most of the negative reviews I saw are because people don’t like the oregano smell.
