    Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion:

    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.

      Love the tingling feeling from this product. Noticed more even skin tone without any irritation, which I normally get around my mouth and nose, but no problems with this product. Been using for about 1 month

        I use it as a toner. It is a little stronger than the plain grapefruit toner. I like it.

            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!

                      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.
