      This is the nicest toner I've ever used. Being older, I can no longer use the products I did in my teens and even into my 20s. Being in my 50s, this is such a gentle toner that leaves my skin clean and not bogged down.

                Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion:

                I love this toner and can not be without it. This is probably my 5th or 6th bottle since i discovered this brand and product. I ran out and didn't have a chance to restock for awhile and noticed how clogged up my pores became. This takes all that junk out. After you wash your face and use this you would be amazed at all the stuff you see on the cotton ball! This lotion removes every last bit of makeup and dirt without stripping your skin. I have combination skin, more oily in the summer, that is also acne-prone and sensitive. This lotion balances my skin and seems to shrink my pores. My skin tone and texture improves greatly when i use this product. I also use the alpha grapefruit cleansing lotion from this line and love that one too! I recommend that toner for those that need more exfoliation and have discoloration or pigmentation issues. That toner helps reduces my acne scars significantly! I recently picked up both toners and enzyme cleansing gel when i had a coupon on mario badescu products, very rare btw. I switch b.w the 2 toners and use the enzyme cleansing gel as my regular cleanser and the foaming gylcolic cleanser about twice a week(what my skin can tolerate bc it is very drying for me) and my skin has become soo much better, clearing up my acne greatly. I'm going to stick with this routine and make sure i dont run out of this toner again! This skin care line is amazing and i highly recommend his products, esp if you have sensitive skin like i do. I have found products that work without irritating my skin :)

                        I would skip the Special Cucumber Lotion until your sunburn diminishes. Rather, opt for an aloe-based product. We offer our Aloe Vera Toner (Item #: 2210018).

                        Special Cucumber Lotion may be too strong for your sensitive skin. You should be using Mario Badescu Aloe Lotion (Item #: 2210019). This is our toner specially designed for acne-prone sensitive skin. Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion (Item #: 2209805) is also a great product to keep on hand. It is specifically designed to treat large, deep, cystic acne
