      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.

      Too harsh for my skin

      Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion:

      I have used other cleansing lotions from this line before and liked them like the grapefruit one. This one was way too harsh for me. I had to return. It may have just been to harsh for me and may work well for other folks. I have large pores and congestion but it doesn't erupt often. My skin is combo. Sometimes too shiny with small breakouts. After this my skin was dry and flaking and red and irritated.

      I bought this because I have oily acne prone skin and acne scars and this helped remove excess oil as well as dirt and makeup along with clearing up my dark spots! It lasts a long time too. Definitely repurchasing :)

        When I purchased the item, I told the salesclerk that I needed something that would not make my skin oily.
        This item was oily and I did not like it!

              Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion:

              I have been a Mario Badescu fan for years! As an esthetician, this is one of the only products that I will pay full price for because it is worth it! I have tried tons of other high-end, expensive product lines that either don't deliver, are way too harsh, or are too difficult to use. I like something I can use on a regular basis that gives me results....and this is it. I have oily, breakout prone skin and the dry desert climate I live in doesn't help. I use this glycolic toner to keep my skin fresh and exfoliated, because let's face it, no one is getting younger. It is also fantastic for keeping my acne under control. I use it every night after cleansing and follow it with a good moisturizer. When I am feeling a little too dried out, I switch to every other night or I just spot treat. Every time I have tried to switch to something new, I regret it. This toner always gets me back on track. For stubborn breakouts, I follow up with Mario's pink Drying Lotion. I recommend this to all of my clients with problem skin or those who just want a gentle yet effective anti-aging product. The best part is that one bottle will last a very long time and it is quite affordable compared to other clinical facial product lines. Bonus tip: use it on your bikini line for those stubborn ingrowns!

                  Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion:

                  I am not one to review beauty products because I buy so many of them and am rarely impressed. But this toner is absolutely amazing. I have naturally good skin with few issues but since turning 40 I have a few wrinkles on my forehead, the 11 lines that I cannot stand. Also I have some annoying dry patches on my forehead above my eyebrows and side of nose. After using this toner for 2 weeks, the dry patches are totally gone and the forehead wrinkles are less prominent. Must be the glycolic acid. I am so impressed. My pores are smaller too and my skin looks radiant
                  I bought the Mario Badescu anti aging starter kit today. I am excited to see how the other products work. I highly recommend this stuff. I should mention I have VERY oily skin so maybe that is why I can use this toner twice a day without drying out my skin like others have said it does.

                      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.

                      If you have active acne blemishes, we do not recommend using this product, as it may cause irritation; however, it is an effective treatment to fade discoloration due to acne scarring and hyperpigmentation.
