    Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

    since I bought this just last week, the results are already amazing! it does gently exfoliate (there's no beads or anything) but my face feels so much smoother after using it on a cotton pad. this also makes my face plump and ready for my moisturizer - my moisturizer literally glides on. since using this, my face has cleared up a lot and my skin just looks a lot more vibrant and smooth. would definitely buy again and again.

                  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!!

                      A:

                      The color shift which you are describing is common with the Glycolic Acid Toner and is dependent on the type and amount of lighting the product has experienced. The more florescent lighting to which the product was exposed to, the lighter the color may be, but this has not affected the efficacy of the product. You may continue to use and enjoy the product.

                      A:

                      Our Glycolic Acid Toner is recommended for use with combination or dry skin types. The actual frequency of use would be determined by your skin's tolerance to glycolic acid. I would start with 2 times a week and increase usage as your skin allows. You can use this toner in combination with the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser. You should also start using the cleanser 1-2 times a week and increase usage accordingly. http://www.ulta.com/glycolic-foaming-cleanser?productId=xlsImpprod6200753#

                      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

                      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.

                      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.
