    This product is great for oily skin and larger pores. 2.0floz may not seem like a lot of product, but a little goes a long way with this gel. It'll last a long time.

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Tiny bumps under skin that don't surface

      Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Gel:

      Purchased for areas on either side of chin with little bumps that never surface, but never go away. I've washed my face with this and also left it on overnight on problem areas. Works best when used overnight. There was only a little drying and I have very very sensitive skin. No pain or tingling. I have just started using and these little areas have significantly improved. I've had these darn bumps for years!! Impressed!

        Effective but there is better product

        By dreamingofbrasil

        from Canyon Country, CA

        Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Gel:

        I first used this all over my face, twice a week, and found it to be too drying for the areas that didn't need it. I purchased it to help minimize a few acne scars and help with the texture of the overall skin. I was thinking of it as more of full strength peel; I have been using different peels over the last few years and wanted to try something else.

        After the first two tries I began using it as a spot treatment for the scars and new zits. It does work very well on "zapping" any new trouble makers that come around. It works ok on the existing scars. Works better on the fresher scars. I think the value is good, especially if you use it as a spot treatment, the jar is quite big and it will last you forever.

        However, I just recently started using Clinique's laser repair serum and it has been far more effective at diminishing old and new scars. With Clinique's serum there is no drying issue, and it has been helping with fine lines and deep wrinkles and overall texture.

        So while I don't regret getting Mario's gel, I would most likely have no purchased it if I had tried the Clinique's serum first.

            Love this product. Its really good for the occasional breakout and blackheads. It also works great on pores. I have oily skin so its effective enough to absorb oil but light enough to not dry you out. I use every 3 days at night.

            Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Gel:

            Follow the instructions on the bottle and this will work wonders. I've used it three times so far, and my skin is already looking better. I suffer with cystic acne and stress related acne. This will cause some peeling to occur, but once that's gone, your skin will look amazing. I use a mild face wash and this gel - that's all! This product was suggested to me by a friend after I've tried MANY other acne medications. I'm so glad I bought it; totally worth the money!

              I have aging, moderately sensitive combination skin that is still acne prone in my 50s. I use this twice a week on my nose and chin. De-gunks pores and makes them look smaller. Haven't noticed any irritation.

                This gel is a little pricey but a little goes a long way. I use it between everyday to every other day. Is nice a smooth and works great on my uneven skin. I have had acne since a teen and now I just have black spots and uneven skin tone due to years of acne. I can say after 1 week I see a big difference.
