Wash away makeup and surface debris, leaving skin clean and refreshed with Mario Badescu's best selling non-foaming gel cleanser. Perfect for all skin types, the cleanser features fruit enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids (found naturally in papya and grapefruit extracts) to gently exfoliate the buidlup of dead skin cells that can block pores and cause blemishes. Skin is left healthy and rejuvenated.
Twice daily, gently massage cleanser in circular motions on wet skin. Leave on for 1-2 minutes to allow AHAs more time to dissolve away surface buildup, then rinse thoroughly with warm water. Follow with toner or astringent. If product gets into eyes, rinse well with water.

          Comments about Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel:

          I love this stuff so much. I was having really bad skin issues (cystic acne). My skin was tired, dull, and not to mention really red. I had heard the raves about Mario Badescu and decided to give them a try. I LOVE IT SO MUCH. Paired with the Aloe Vera Toner, my skin is so much brighter, softer, and way less red. If you have mildly sensitive and oily skin, I would highly recommend this product.

          Instructions don't tell you to leave it on 1-2 minutes. Why?

              The bottle says "Massage gently onto wet skin and rinse thoroughly with warm water". Using these instructions, the product did a horrible job at cleaning my face. I got on Ulta's website to read reviews for the product, and I noticed the website's instructions were different. They say to apply and leave the gel on for a few minutes before rinsing off so it has a chance to break down dead skin and dirt. I gave that a try and the gel actually does a decent job cleaning my face now! Would have been nice to know from the start that this product needs to stay on your face for a few minutes to work, then I wouldn't have wasted so much of it. Sadly, even after using correctly for several weeks, there has been no improvement to my acne.

                    I'm trying to buy the best I can for myself, and it may seem expensive to some, but a little goes a long way for cleansing. The sample lasted me a while, so I invested in the larger size. I love it.

                      I've been using an acne clearing wash for a while and it's cleared up. However, every time I wash my face, it gets very red and dry. I'm looking for something more soothing that won't irritate my skin or make it acne prone. Do you recommend this cleanser or another one?

                        We recommend bringing the product or list of ingredients to your doctor for approval before using any skin care products while pregnant. We suggest this because recommended products or ingredients can vary slightly from doctor to doctor and only your physician knows your medical history.

                        A:

                        The Enzyme Cleansing Gel would be a great alternative if you cannot use products with salicylic acid. This daily cleanser will gently cleanse the skin and help reduce build up and congestion. To help reduce discoloration, we recommend our Glycolic Foaming Cleanser 1-3 times per week depending on your skin type as your exfoliant. The Glycolic Foaming Cleanser will help reduce breakouts and congestion while minimizing discoloration from acne scars or sun spots. http://www.ulta.com/glycolic-foaming-cleanser?productId=xlsImpprod6200753
