    This is helping to change my skin!! It's been months and I just ran out of my first bottle, using it withe my vanity planet deep cleansing brush! Helps with even my hormonal breakouts, most of all acne scars/hyper-pigmentation on my brown skin!

          I used this cleanser everyday for three days it did not dry my skin out at all, I did notice it left my skin smoother. I purchased it mainly for dark spots from acne it did not help. I repurchased this product because it leaves my skin feeling clean and smooth with consistent use

                    A little pricey for a facial cleanser but after I take my makeup off and use it the smell is phenominal! It feels like it's working and leaves pores feeling clean and smaller

                        Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser:

                        After reading hundreds of great reviews, I really wanted to love this product. I have oily/acne prone skin and I had finally managed to control my acne when I decided to try this product to lighten up my scars. It was a horrible mistake. Instead, I broke out with painful cystic acne all over my checks and jaw line. At first I stuck to it because I thought I was "purging," but after about 5 weeks of use, it wasn't getting any better and I was still breaking out. I won't give up on MB completely, I have used their seaweed cleanser with no issues, but the glycolic face cleanser was just not for me. I have stopped using it and praying my skin recovers soon!!

                            Yes. The Glycolic Foaming Cleanser will help exfoliate the skin and reduce discoloration from glycolic acid in the product. Our Whitening Mask is also a great option to help further reduce discoloration from acne. http://www.ulta.com/whitening-mask?productId=xlsImpprod6200747

                          The instructions say 2-3 per week of oily. Does that mean use day and night, 2-3 times per week? Or just wash your face with this 2-3 per week and that's it. Just wondering if I should use this for both Morning and night routines.
