    Best Uses

    • Can't use

    Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Skin Renewal Complex:

    The jar does have a warning about the peanut oil , in fact it is the second ingredient listed. I've never been allergic to peanuts , but this didn't prove true with this face cream. My eyelids and skin under my eyes swelled and itched greatly. Also lots of itching and irritation on face and neck. This took awhile to clear up as I didn't know what was causing the problem.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Skin Renewal Complex:

              I kept reading if you have oily skin it would not be too bad, but I seem to get extra oily and I have combination skin. I've only been using it for about 4 days I will review once I get the rest of my products to see if the combination works well. Right now I am using shea moisture products along with this at night.

              • Q:

                Is this product safe to use on acne? The glycolic wash works well with my skin, which is acne prone. However, I tend to me cautious of using moisturizes not specifically created for acne. Is the product non-acnegenic?

                  A:

                  Glycolic Skin Renewal Complex is not recommended if you have acne. It is an emollient rich cream. Instead, we suggest the Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 30 (Item #: 2220943) for day and the Seaweed Night Cream (Item #: 2209856) for night.
