Mario Badescu's best selling daily cleanser. This non-foaming, gel cleanser thoroughly removes the day's make-up, dirt and oil without drying the skin. Papaya and grapefruit extracts are exfoliating alpha hydroxy acids that help prevent dulling build-up that can cause blackheads and pimples.
Twice daily, massage in a circular motion on wet skin avoiding eye area. Rinse with tepid water. Pat dry and follow with toner or astringent.

Product is great, but lot and sidewalks were treachous.

Comments about Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel:

Product is great as a facial cleanser. However, the sidewalks and parking lot of your Wayne, NJ store had not been salted nor had the ice/snow been removed. Walking was very treacherous, and customers were slipping.

        Not a bad product for cleansing although I do not believe it completely clears pores. Inexpensive, but drying. Smell is not great, either.

          I received a free sample of this and loved it so much I had to buy a whole bottle. This cleanser makes my skin feel clean, soft, and doesn't leave it feeling tight and try like a lot of cleansers do. It also smells fantastic. I love every product I've tried from this line. I highly recommend it.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel:

              Nice cleanser... doesn't foam at all so if that's what u want.. don't bother. I like to give realistic reviews. Cleanser is nice but doesn't remove heavy makeup. I would suggest using makeup removing wipes/miscellaneous water or any idea the like to remove heavy makeup. This product burns your eyes so do not use around the eye area or to remove eye makeup. It's challenging bc you don't know how much to use to be effective... I use a dime size and Cleanse twice before moving on to toner. Otherwise, no real issues with this cleanser, it's gentle, doesn't cause breakouts, isn't oily and doesn't dry me out. I have combo skin.

                  A:

                  Enzyme Cleansing Gel does remove makeup, oil, and other impurities from the skin. However, some of the long wearing, HD lines of foundation may require a makeup remover to properly remove.

                My skin is combination dry and oily I believe and I suffer from really congested pores or black heads on my nose that I've never been able to fully get rid of. I also get small red bumps and blackheads on my cheek bones sometimes. What are good products to use as far as cleansers, toners and moisturizers. Treatment I'm thinking the silver powered sounds promising I just don't want to over dry my skin

                  Our Acne Starter Kit features a collection of products best suited for your skin - Acne Facial Cleanser, Special Cucumber Lotion, and Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 17. The kit also includes the Drying Mask and Drying Cream to target those areas of concern. To avoid over drying, you should sparingly apply both of these products only to those areas where you have the clogged pores. http://www.ulta.com/acne-starter-kit?productId=xlsImpprod6200813

                  A:

                  Enzyme Cleansing Gel features fruit enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids to dissolve away makeup, oil, and impurities that can lead to clogged pores. This would a great option for you if you have combo or slightly oily skin.
                  If you have oily, acne prone skin, our Acne Facial Cleanser is a better option for you. http://www.ulta.com/acne-facial-cleanser?productId=xlsImpprod6200757
                  Either cleanser can be used before spot treating with the Drying Lotion.
