Ask a Question
Minimize fine lines and discoloration. The exfoliating powers of citrus extracts and the soothing nature of aloe and seaweed extracts make this toner perfect for dull, dry and sensitive complexions. Citrus naturally breaks down pore congestion and dead skin cells for a healthy, refreshed glow. Also a solution for those suffering with pigmentation and discoloration of the skin. Alcohol free.
Twice daily after cleansing, pat skin dry and apply lotion-dampened cotton to skin, wiping in an outward direction until cotton comes up clean. Avoid eye area. Follow with moisturizer or night cream.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion:

      This is my 2nd bottle! Been using this for almost 2 months now and I'm loving it. I have the most sensitive skin that what ever new product I am using it'll be irritated. But, hands up to this toner. All my dark spots are totally gone. I recommend using a glycolic gel after each use for best result.

        I was reccommended this by a coworker with the most even and glowing skin tone I had ever seen. I had to now what she used. My best friend's late mother also used this and had gorgeous skin as well. I noticed a difference after a few days; softer skin, even tone, a calm radiance. I even use it over my eye area and it does not irritate them! I will be adding the Grapefruit Lotion Cleanser to my permanent beauty regiment

            Buyer Beware! The formula has changed

            By JLSims

            from Lakeland, Florida

            Comments about Mario Badescu Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion:

            I have been a faithful customer of Mario Badescu for YEARS and this was my all time favorite product. I used to buy multiple bottles of it a time whenever I could find it on sale, and just this week I went back to ulta to replenish my stock and noticed that the formula had changed! The ingredients listed here on the ultra product page are NOT CORRECT any longer. The NEW formula now includes things like "Yellow 6" and "red 40" among other things. I have attached a picture from my trip this week. The bottle on the right is the tester with the original formula, one on the left is the one they are currently selling. I highly encourage ulta to update their ingredient information,I will not be purchasing this item any longer and this is disappointing to me as a longtime customer,but also misleading to NEW customers. Thank you!

              Holy moly this stuff is amazing. I've been taking accutane for 5 months now and the dryness has been killer- along with the fact that acne spots and dryness takes a lot more time healing on the drug. This stuff has saved me! Any time I have a post acne spot I just take care to put a little extra of this on it and within the next day it's noticeable better. It also leaves my skin feeling nicely moisturizer for a toner (cause most toners leave it tight and dry) I've tried a majority of the Mario Badescu line and this is by far one of my favorite products!

                The labeling lead me astray when lookimg for a different Badescu cleneanser to try. This product turned out to be a toner, not a cleanser...Thank goodness for Ultas generous return policy and helpful customer service.

                    Mario Badescu Acne Repair Kit (Item #: 2209794) is a collection of spot treatments to target the different types of blemishes you may experience. You can incorporate our Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion into your daily skin care routine. Apply the toner after washing your face. Acne Facial Cleanser (Item #: 2209929) is our cleanser designed for acne prone skin. At nighttime, you can apply the spot treatments after cleansing and toning - you can skip a nighttime moisturizer on nights you use the spot treatments.

                • Q:

                  For acne scars should I use the alpha grapefruit or the glycolic acid toner which one works better for acne scars. I have a lot of dark/red spots in my face left from previous acne . Also can I use it with the whitening mask. Thank you

                    Have you seen our Brightening Kit (http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod11351443)? It addresses discoloration and hyperpigmentation. It includes Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion and Whitening Mask. All of the individual products featured in the kit work to reduce discolorations - but they are even better when combined!
