    Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

    I didn't realize how much the drug store toner I was using didn't work until I tried this stuff. I have really really dry skin. Like big flaky patches in the winter time if I don't constantly slather on moisturizer dry skin. After I started using this, I can go without moisturizer some nights. (Not every night; lets not get crazy.) it's amazing what your makeup remover wipes leave behind and this stuff gets it all off!

        This totally agrees with my skin, which is gradually more combination than oily lately. I was looking for a gentle but effective toner, and this is it.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

        I have acne prone, combination oily skin. The Glycolic Acid Toner used with the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser works well on my skin. But this must be used sparingly as Glycolic acid tends to dry out skin.

          I use this every morning after washing face with an exfoliator. This removes dead skin and makes my skin look refreshed and not so dull. It leaves a clean feel and smells nice. It also preps my skin for mositurizer application. It also seems my makeup looks better

                        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.

                          Hi, I have extremely oily skin with hormonal cystic acne and enlarged pores. I have no skin sensitivities and I've been going back and forth on a few toners by MB. I have used the Special Cleansing Lotion "C" and I liked it but overall I did not see any real improvement in my skin. Would you recommend this toner or another one?

                            We do not suggest our Glycolic Acid Toner for those with acne prone or acne erupted skin. For very oily acne prone skin our Special Cleansing Lotion C is the best option we offer.

                            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.
