    Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

    It really helps clear up hormonal congestion I get on my chin, and around my forehead. I have very dry skin and I haven't noticed any drying effects. It smells amazing and is a great gentle alternative to harsh, coarse exfoliates. I bought this product when it was on sale, but it is so good, and not even that expensive to begin with, so I will purchase this again when I run out.

              I'm 33, have had extremely sensitive skin my entire life, after my son was born I developed redness in my cheeks and blemishes which I'd never had before. Over two yrs I've tried countless things to heal my new acne problem and nothing worked partially because of my super sensitive skin. I've now used this product every night before putting on the Mario Badescu vitamin C lotion for the last two
              Weeks. This toner and lotion have worked absolute WONDERS for my skin!!!! My redness has significantly went down, blemishes gone, completely gone! This was my first time buying a Mario product and I'm so grateful that I did. The bottle is 8oz and I can see this easily getting me through At least 6 months. My skin is naturally dry and this product didn't seem to dry my face out any more than usual which is a good thing! I'll keep buying this as long as it keeps working for me. Try it out!

              NOT For Super-Sensitive Skin

                  Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

                  I trusted the other reviews that listed this as being okay for sensitive skin. It isn't. The directions on the bottle even say "not for use on sensitive skin" (Ulta didn't print that part, I thought I might have just missed it). I tried it anyway because the other reviewers were so sure... and it burns. Given, my skin is super-sensitive and most of the time I can't handle anything except Cetaphil but I've tried other products from Mario Badescu without issue.

                  This is probably fine for oily or combo skin, but I wish I hadn't tried it.

                    Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

                    I bought this when it was half off to give it a try. I usually hate toners because the smell is so offensive and it stings while I'm applying them. But this one is different. It doesn't sting, it cleans out my pores, and improved the feeling of my skin. It's honestly worth a try but it says on the bottle that it's for dry to combination skin types. I don't know how someone with oily skin will like this but who knows, you may love it. I personally used to have oily skin, but it's now combination. I believe that this toner has helped with that because it helps to exfoliate, soothe, and soften the look of the skin. My skin has less crazy breakouts, it no longer gets dry flakes, and it's no longer overly oily. I'm glad I got a back up because this is the best toner I've tried thus far.

                        I normally don't break out much, but I do suffer from very pink cheeks, and some discoloration around my mouth. will this toner work to help counteract that?

                      • Q:

                        i was looking through the questions and I saw that this toner was for fine lines and wrinkles and getting rid of dark spots and the aloe vera toner was for soothing the skin/sensitive skin. If we have both issues; because I have dry skin but also acne marks, breakouts and also large pores would we be able to go back and forth and use both toners?

                        I currently use this 2x a week after deep cleansing. My face has gotten visibly brighter, but I wanted to know if this product is safe to use on my neck as well. My neck is much darker than my face and body and after my facial results w/this toner, I was curious to know if I should extend this product down into my neck area as well

                          Glycolic Acid Toner utilizes Glycolic Acid and Grapefruit Extract to deliver enhanced exfoliation while sweeping away impurities and can be added to both ani-aging and anti-acne skin care regimens. Special Cucumber Lotion is used to clarify and refresh while controlling T-zone shine and is generally only recommended for acne prone skin.
