    Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

    I was using pixies glycolic toner, but I hated to use it because it dried out my already dry skin. I heard good reviews about this so I decided to try it. I use it twice a day to help smooth my skin and doesn't dry me out! I love it!

    Did NOT like it

    Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

    I was really excited to try this toner because so many people have recommended it and the reviews are awesome but OH BOY WAS I WRONG. literally the 2nd or 3rd day of using this I started to notice my skin was getting really irritated but I didn't know from what since I bought a new face wash and serum when I bought this toner so I just ignored it. when I woke up I had little bumps EVERYWHERE. and I knew it was from the toner because i had them on my neck and I only brought the toner down my neck. It's been a week and my skin is still recovering, I still have little bumps but not as bad...wish I didn't even try this product tbh

        Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

        After my normal daily skin routine, I applied this toner after cleansing and it left my skin feeling sticky and tacky. I tried this for a few days hoping it would subside but it just didn't get any better. It felt like I needed to re-wash my face all over again because it was so sticky. I've liked all of Mario Badescu products I've tried, but this toner is definitely a no for me, will be returning this.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

        I love this stuff! I have struggled with severe cystic acne in the past, and now I mostly have a lot of redness and some scarring to take care of. I'm hoping this can help with that. I've been using it on and off for a while now, but it kind of got lost in my skincare cupboard for some reason. I've recently went back to it and I love it more than I did when I first tried it. It smooths out my skin, and definitely helps my moisturizer absorb better. My skin texture has always been an issue, but now that's in the past. Though I love my cerave face wash, this always manages to remove dirt/makeup left behind after washing. I'm not new to chemical exfoliants, I've had multiple chemical peels, so I know my skin can handle this well. Unfortunately, if you have sensitive skin this most likely won't be a good first choice for you. You're supposed to slowly introduce your skin to new chemical exfoliants, and this is very strong. I'm going to start using it twice a day rather than once every other, and see if it helps my redness. Even if it doesn't (which it most likely will), I'm already very in love with it.

          I bought this to try and have started using several Mario Badescu skin care products since that then.

            I bought this product as a replacement for my Pixi Glow Tonic because I ran out and the product is hard to find in my area. I came across this alternative, and boy am I glad. Within 2 days of use, my skin already started clearing up. Not only is it more effective than the Pixi Glow Tonic, but you also get more for the price. I will buy again!

              Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

              I've been using this product for about two weeks now and I love it! Since using this the texture of my skin has improved dramatically. I've even noticed some of my acne scars have faded quite quickly as well. I have pretty sensitive skin with an oily t-zone and this hasn't irritated me or broken me out once. I use it at night after washing my face and sometimes in the morning as well. It's not drying at all but definitely does not make me feel or look greasy. I've also started putting some on a cotton pad and using it on the Keratosis Pilaris on my arms and have seen a dramatic improvement! I definitely think giving this product is worth a shot!
