Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

this toner does an excellent job of catching any dirt or makeup that didn't get washed off with my normal cleanser, and it helps even out my face. definitely something i will be buying again when it runs out!

Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

This product is truly fantastic. I use it in combination with the Glycolic Face Cleanser and these products have made my skin look clear, balanced, and have dramatically reduced sun spots/mild acne scars. I feel my face is a little tight during the day, but that will most likely decrease when I pull back on the frequency of the face wash use. I am hooked and looking for other Mario Badescu products for my skincare regime.

Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

I bought this due to a really great review by someone I really trust in the makeup community. We just must have very different skin types. I had used Clinique toner for years but was looking for something with more skin benefits and thought this would be it. I am super oily in the T zone and this made it worse. So I returned it. Surprisingly, what is amazing instead of this and the Clinique is the Pixi Glow Tonic. I recommend that highly!!

Holy grail skincare item!!!

By Tiff

Pros

  • Balances Skin
  • Improves Skin Texture
  • Leaves Clean Feel

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Acne-Prone Skin
    • Daily Use

    Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

    I have purchased several of these. I use it in the morning before my moisturizer and at night after I remove my makeup. I have suffered from hormonal acne in the past, and this helps keep my skin clear. It is a natural exfoliant, so it's anti-aging and it leaves my skin looking healthy. Would 100% recommend!

      Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

      I have used this for several months and my husband asked if he could try because he noticed his pores were so large and he had several blackheads. I also bought him the Glycolic Wash, same brand. I can't tell you the difference it has made on his face! I have used it with the other anti-aging products, really love this brand, I do recommend to allow the toner to work so wait 15 minutes to apply any serum or lotion following it. It really works well!

      Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

      I wanted to wait at least 2 weeks before I wrote this review. I have recently been focusing on skin and was looking to all outlets for recommendations. I have a Murad glycolic cream and another expensive pigmentation cream and those together cost me $95. While looking for my Mario Badescu rose water, I was approached by a brand specialist. Not only was she helpful, but told me all about these products and what each specific one was intended for. I bought this toner, a hydrating lotion, Rosewater and an eye cream. I have combination skin, texture, and pigmentation from years of not caring for my skin at all. LET ME TELL YOU. The new products that I have incorporated has changed my skin life. My pigmentation and texture is slowly fading and I know this toner is a big contribution. I use it every night after I wash my face. I tone, use the rose water, and then apply my creams. My makeup looks better and my skin looks healthier and it glows.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

        Previously had dry, very sensitive cystic acne ridden skin. NOTHING worked for me as far as making any improvements. I don't know if this was the single key player or not (but it helps immensely with skin texture), since I also started using Philosophy Purity and the MB AHA ceramide moisturizer around the same time. All I can say is my skin has cleared up and improved by leaps and bounds since starting this combination of products. Give it a try if regular exfoliators are too much for your skin :)

            • Brand Expert

              A:

              We would not recommend using this toner if the redness you have is from a skin sensitivity. Minor splotchy-ness and other skin discolorations would benefit from regular use of this toner.

            • Brand Expert

              A:

              The exfoliating properties of glycolic acid in this toner, along with avoiding products that are too heavy/oily for your skin type, will work to help prevent milia.
