      Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser:

      I am an African American female in her 20s who suffers from acne and has oily skin. I use this product once or twice a week to cleanse my skin and to help lighten/peel the blackhead and/or acne scars that remain on my face. This product does a great job at cleaning my skin and peeling my scars/dead skin away.

          It said to use 2-3 times per week, but liked it so much used couple days in a row. Dried out skin for daily use so DO AS DIRECTIONS SAY only 2-3 times per week. More not necessary! Oh and little bit goes a long way, so great price for this product!!

              I have very reactive skin, but I also use a zinc oxide sunblock. This cleanser breaks down the sunblock with out irritating my skin. I wouldn't recommend it for most sensitive skin daily, but for me it's perfect!

                          The glycolic acid in this toner will provide gentle exfoliation that will address both the acne prone skin and the hyper pigmentation. It should work well with your points of concern if you use 2-3 times a week.

                        I'm currently doing an all natural skin care routine with coconut oil at night and apple vinegar in the morning mixed with water which I found has cleared up my face but caused bacne on my shoulders.... is this a good product for shoulders? Also could I still incorporate this into my skin care routine for my face with what I'm already doing or would that be a bad mixture?

                          Glycolic Foaming Cleanser will provide the exfoliation required to breakdown the pore clogging debris that is causing these skin issues. You should swap out the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser for your regular cleanser 2-3 times a week. You can also apply our Drying Mask ONLY to those problem areas 1-2 times a week to further target the bumps.

                          Assuming you don't have a skin sensitivity to glycolic acid - you can certainly use the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser 1-3 times a week depending on your skin type and skin tolerance. If dryness or irritation occurs, cut back the frequency of both products until you establish a custom skin care routine that works for you.

                          A:

                          The Glycolic Foaming Cleanser should not make your skin peel. This products contains Glycolic Acid which helps to gently exfoliate and deep clean build up from the skin's surface. I would recommend using the product 1-3 times a week, while alternating with a daily cleanser, such as our best-selling Enzyme Cleansing Gel (http://www.ulta.com/enzyme-cleansing-gel?productId=xlsImpprod6200755).
                          If peeling or irritation occurs, please discontinue use immediately.
