      Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

      I purchased this product after reading an article in Yahoo Beauty about using this with philosphy's "The Microdelivery Overnight Anti-Aging Peel" to even out skin tone and those little white bumps that I have acquired by having oily skin. The dermatologist called them over-productive oil pores, but didn't offer any advice about what to do to get rid of them. The Yahoo article caught my eye for the mentioning of these issues. I have used this product just about a week and love that it is shrinking my pores and the larger ones that crop up when over-producing oil. I haven't had a chance to try the philosophy product yet, but I will continue to use the Mario Bedescu Glycolic Toner!!

                This toner has helped tremendously with my dry patches, it leaves my face feeling incredibly soft, like I never even had dry patches. I didn't notice any decrease in redness, but I'm honestly okay with that because of how it leaves my skin. Will be repurchasing.

                  I have never had a bad Mario Badescu product, and this one is as great as the others. I have very sensitive skin, and dry. This effectively exfoliates my skin without drying it, or being harsh. It is very gentle. And my skin feels so soft after I use it. I use it every morning and it leaves my face feeling and looking great.

                        We wouldn't recommend using 2 toners. That may prove to be too harsh for your skin. You can either use one in the morning and the other at night or you can incorporate our gently exfoliating Glycolic Foaming Cleanser into your skin care routine 2-3 times a week. http://www.ulta.com/glycolic-foaming-cleanser?productId=xlsImpprod6200753

                        No, you should not be experiencing any issues while your skin gets used to it. You may have a sensitivity to glycolic acid and should discontinue use.

                        Regular use of glycolic acid based products will work to gently exfoliate away that pore clogging debris. You may also want to consider using our Glycolic Foaming Cleanser (Item #: 2209926) 2-3 times a week. We also offer our Drying Cream (Item #: 2209806) to target those small under the surface bumps.

                        A:

                        Our Glycolic Acid Toner can be used daily after cleansing to offer gentle exfoliation that will reduce congestion, help to minimize fine lines, and work to reduce discolorations over time. Our Whitening Mask (Item #: 2209901) should be used 2-3 times a week and is super effective at brightening your overall skin tone and to minimize skin discolorations with regular use.
