    Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

    I've used Clinique toner for years before trying this. I wanted to be able to use a toner at night before bed and in the morning that's not too drying, but this formula leaves behind a little bit of a greasy residue. I only use this at night and it's faded some of my old acne scars but doesn't do anything for my existing acne. It's a good product for evening skin tone and it's definitely made my skin less oily overall, however, I still prefer the Clinique toner (for oily skin) for treating my acne.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

      I've used up most of the bottle and haven't noticed any noticeable difference with my skin. This toner has a strong scent, but it not unpleasant. Leaves my skin feeling very sticky which was my major issue with this toner.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

      I so desperately wanted to love this product but it didn't do much for me. It is great at cleaning off makeup, dirt that my facial cleanser missed. However in terms of skin texture, appearance, etc., I saw no difference in my skin. And I've used the entire bottle in hopes that it just takes time, but just wasn't for me. I have adult acne, combination skin and acne scarring.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

      As a poor, newlywed college student, I'm really picky when it comes to what I spend my money on. The price on this isn't bad and the reviews were great, especially from those with bad acne scars. A few years ago I had a random, horrible breakout and it left my cheeks scarred and discolored. This has DRAMATICALLY reduced the appearance of my scars and has evened out my texture. It has lasted a long time too even with me using it every night. I have dry skin and I have to make sure to use moisturizer after this, but I am definitely going to repurchase because of what it's done for me. My family even comments on how much better my skin is looking.

                    A:

                    Although the product has not changed, the ultra violet lighting at the location may have distorted the color, resulting in a color different from the last time you purchased the product. The shift in color has not compromised the efficacy of the product.

                    A:

                    The Glycolic Foaming Cleanser would be a great option 1-3 times per week depending on your skin type. This product can be used in place of your daily cleanser to help exfoliate the skin, reduce congestion/breakouts and minimize discoloration from acne. We do not suggest the Glycolic Acid Toner for acne prone our acne erupted skin. Products in the Brightening Regimen Kit can be incorporated into your current routine to help reduce discoloration, this would be the best option to help target discoloration.
