Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion:

It does do a good job of deep cleaning my pores and somewhat tightens them and that is two things that I like about it. I have a combination of oily and dry skin and I tell you what, one swipe around the face is good enough. wiping my face with this product on a pad can be face stinging and drying. I believe this product is best use for anybody with oily skin because this product will irritate and sting anybody with sensitive and dry skin. The irritation can last for the rest of day followed by the dry skin effect for days if used alone and not followed by with a face moisturizer. I don't recommend this product for people with prone acne because it can possible worsen the acne for first time user. I broke out a couple acne on the first day of use due to the stinging and drying effect. After couple days of usage my face had adjusted to the chemical, but even after applying a moisturizer after each swipe, my face still has the drying effect feeling and it's been several days now.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion:

      blistered my skin! The first couple of times I used this I enjoyed it,it didn't burn or aggravate my skin but by the third time it caused little painful water blisters to pop up on my cheeks and chin. Will not be using this on my face anymore. I read that it helps with little bumps on the arms or "chicken skin" so I'm going to try it for that so it doesn't go to waste.

        I love this product, my skin has changed alot in the last few years and I have had to find new products to accommodate my changing needs. I have been experiencing alot of adult acne from improper exfoliation. This is the fix. Mario Badescu has something for everyone, no matter what your issues. This product has helped clear up my skin.

                Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion:

                I do not have sensitive skin and usually use a scrub to exfoliate my skin. I wanted to try a chemical exfoliator and found this in the ulta store. I've given it 2 tries with the same result. Each use made parts of my face feel like rubbing alcohol on an open cut. I have no cuts or acne. Even 30 min after using and moisturizing, my face feels burnt and sensitive.
                I have normal skin, not oily or dry, but after using this my skin had a horrible shine to it as well.

                    A:

                    Since this product features the exfoliating properties of both glycolic acid and grapefruit extract, we would not recommend this for young teenagers or those with sensitive skin.

                    A:

                    Mario Badescu Glycolic Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion has a higher concentration of glycolic acid and grapefruit extract to make it a stronger version of the Glycolic Acid Toner. The Glycolic Acid Toner is a more popular choice, as the Glycolic Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion may be too strong for some.

                • Q:

                  I have sensitive/reactive skin that is oily and congested on my chin, dry/red in my cheeks and normal on my forehead. I can get clogged pores in any area very easily, but always on my chin. Would this be a good toner maybe just on my chin? I also have the seaweed lotion for my cheeks.
