Exfoliate up to three times a week with Mario Badescu's foaming glycolic acid-based cleanser designed to dissolve dulling dead skin cells, to help refine pores and retexturize uneven skin. Fine lines, wrinkes, old acne marks, and age spots are diminished with regular use-encouraging a smoother, more youtful-looking complexion. A soothing blend of chamomile, marshmellow, sage, St. John's wort, and yarrow extracts provide additional rejuvenating benefits that help re-balance and leave skin radiant. Use as a supplemental cleanser.
Replace your regular cleanser 1-2 times per week for Dry to Combination Skin, and 2-3 times per week for Combination and Oily skin. Massage onto wet skin using upward, circular motions, then rinse thoroughly with warm water. If product gets into eyes, rinse well with water.

    Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser:

    I started to develop little bumps all over my face a few months ago and nothing I tried would get rid of them! I assume they were caused by switching to a new foundation as I've never had this problem before. I've been using this product for probably two weeks now and almost all the bumps are gone! : ) Do follow the instructions and don't use it everyday, it will dry you out. I also recommend using a moisturizer too just to help combat potential flaky patches! I have acne prone skin and really enjoy Navan's trueclear clarifying vitamin cream.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser:

        After about 4 washes with this product my hyperpigmentation began to get darker and my face became very sensitive. I've used a 10 percent glycolic acid treatment without the result of severe sensitivity. Now I have a dark rash around my mouth area and my face stings whenever I use my witch hazel. I had high hopes for it. I'm very discouraged, this ruined my skin.

        I've been using this for about 2 weeks and I really like it. I haven't had a breakout since using it. my skin is always really soft now. I believe it's helping to get rid of my hyperpigmentation as well (slowly of course). I use it in conjunction with the glycolic acid toner. I use this face wash every other day and one at night. It hasn't dried out my skin. I love it!

          Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser:

          I just started using this product last week as part of a new skincare routine, it hasnt been long enough to tell if it is actually improving my skin but when I use it, its very gentle and leaves my skin feeling renewed and very soft. It can be drying, so it shouldn't be used on a daily basis but as long as you moisturize well afterward, your skin will feel smooth and baby soft.

            Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser:

            I already have noticed a difference in the clarity and brightness of my skin since using. I have oily skin, and this cleanser is not as harsh as others, which will leave my skin dry afterwards. I love the clean feeling I have after using it. a little will go a long way! Looking forward to great results after longer use.

                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

            • Q:

              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.

The Glycolic Foaming Cleanser is not suitable for daily use, we recommend this product 1-2 times per week if dry or 2-3 times per week if oily, in place of your daily cleanser.
