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.

                This is my favorite cleanser because it removes my face makeup and I use it daily even though it says 2-3 times a week. It does not irritate my skin. I don't like the glycolic toner but I use a witch hazel toner. This is my second bottle and it last for months.

                  Strongest Glycolic Acid wash on the mass retail market to mot be so harsh and stripping, yet effective.
                  Does WONDERS on hyperpigmentation of BROWN skin and buffs MELANIN to perfection. Smoothes texture and tone. We use this at the spa. GREAT for smoothing wrinkles away and dead skin.

                    I noticed the main ingredient is SLS. I've heard this is not the best ingredient for skin care. Is this true? Also, what is the percentage of SLS in the formula?

                      We appreciate your interest in our products. Mario Badescu Skin Care considers our formulas and the methodology behind ingredient inclusion proprietary information. Since ingredients may have different functions in products depending upon their combination with other ingredients, the percentage of specific ingredients in any given product is not a measure of the ingredient's efficacy. It is the unique formula and technology that provides the desired result.

                      Yes! The Glycolic Foaming Cleanser is recommended for use 1-2 times per week in place of your daily cleanser. This product is not meant to act as a daily cleanser. Our Glycolic Foaming Cleanser is an exfoliant that will help reduce congestion/breakout and minimize discoloration.

                  • Q:

                    Hi, I recently purchased your acne starter kit and it's been great for my acne so far. I've also read great reviews about the glycolic acid foaming face wash and toner as well as your buffer solution . Questions: what exactly does the buffer solution do and is it recommend for adult pustular acne. Also same question for the glycolic acid wash & toner - and should I buy the brightening kit that includes both but in smaller sizes or buy the individual larger bottles. Also, I love foaming washes but the photo of the individual bottle of the glycolic acid wash is a different color than the glycolic acid wash in the brightening kit - are the products different? Thanks for your help! Great products by the way!!

                      A:

                      Thanks for your question. Our Buffering Lotion is best suited to spot treat deep cystic acne breakouts. For pustular acne, our Drying Lotion can be used as your spot treatment. We recommend the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser 1-3 times per week depending on your skin type to exfoliate the skin, help reduce congestion/breakouts and reduce discoloration from acne scarring or sun spots. This product is the same in all our kits and full sizes.
                      We do not suggest the Glycolic Acid Toner on acne prone or acne erupted skin, this may not be the product for you at this time.

                    Hi!!! I heard that before applying mask we should exfoliate to really clean up pores, blackheads!! But this is a glycolic exfoliating so i was confused whether we can apply purifying or charcoal mask after this or just this cleanser is enough??? Do we really need to exfoliate before applying mask??

                      We suggest exfoliating and using a mask on different days to not irritate or over dry the skin. However, we do suggest removing all makeup and cleansing before applying any of our masks for best results.
