      Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

      Leaves my skin feel smooth and clean I wouldn't recommend this for every day just because it can dry out your skin but I used it everyday for a week I did notice a brighter completion but my skin felt raw. So I use it every 3 days and works great. Helps get rid of breakouts and overall imperfections.

            I used to use Pixie Glow Tonic PLUS an aloe toner, this does both for a fraction of the price! Pixie glow tonic is $15 for a bottle half the size of this one.

              I'm 35 with semi olive skin. I'm right in the middle of neither dry nor oily. This product alone makes me look 10 years younger. It doesn't dry you out at all. The firmness and glow I get is amazing. It gave me confidence I didnt know I was lacking. I bought everything else in the the Mario line, but this product stands alone as the best. Worth every penny. The face wash I use is Philosophy and that works perfect with this product. Both are so gentle yet very effective.

              I use this everyday after washing my face. After washing my face I'm very dry but when I go in with the toner it gives some moisture. I absolutely love it. The only problem is the bottle. The nozzle will pour too much product onto your cotton ball.

                I recently started caring more about how I take care of my skin and my mom recommended this toner. I love it! You can't beat the price for the quality of product you are receiving. I can tell a difference after a few weeks of using it and my skin feels great.

                  I have a lot of DARk acne scars I want to get rid of. IS this in combo with the glycolic cleanser the best option for me? I was also considering the brightening kit, but noticed someone said that was good for minor discoloration.

                    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.

                • Q:

                  You mention that you shouldn't use this product on active acne spots. I still have the occasional pimple, but mostly have issues with old acne scars. I don't have too much acne overall. Is this product right for me, or is my minimal acne going to be affected?

                    We do not recommend the Glycolic Acid Toner if you have rosacea or sensitive skin. The Glycolic Acid Toner is also not suitable for acne erupted skin.
                    For sensitive acne prone skin our Aloe Vera Toner can be used. Aloe vera formula soothes irritation and removes pore clogging debris from skin's surface.
