    Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion:

    I use this product 2x a day morning and night. My skin is sensitive acne prone and this has not caused any additional breakouts. It feels so fresh on the skin. I do think some won't like the fragrance smell, but it hasn't bothered my skin.

      This product, along with a basic routine of Mario Badescu products, has saved my skin! This product has made my skin feel so much smoother, and has really cleared up my acne. I had an allergic reaction to a clinique toner, and I went back to ulta to trade it in for a new toner so I bought this. It cleared up my skin after the reaction and has continued to help my skin feel amazing! 10/10 would recommend!

      Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion:

      I recently switched from the Glycolic Acid toner to this one just because the Special Cucumber Lotion was more specific for acne and that absolutely holds true. I love the smell and it makes my skin feel clean while leaving it moisturized not dried out. It doesn't heal acne that makes its way through but it definitely helps controlling the breakouts

          Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion:

          I've been using Mario Badescu for about a year and a half, and this has been my toner from the very beginning. I have complicated skin; it is combination that is more oily, I get terrible blackheads, I am prone to hormonal acne, and during the winter, my skin can be sensitive. I am able to use this year round with the Enzyme Cleansing Gel, and it never dries out my skin. It removes the little bit of makeup that the cleanser leaves, and makes my skin feel incredibly clean. Even though my skin can be sensitive, I've found that this has a great cooling effect. Currently, this is the only specific acne-preventing part of my daily skin routine, but it is enough to cut the amount of hormonal breakouts I get each month by probably 75%. I'll get an occasional whitehead (which heal in a day or two), and my cystic acne has all but disappeared. It's definitely worth a try if you share any of the same skin issues that I do!

            I love this product and it isn't too pricey! I am 21 and this past year my skin has been breaking out way more! It hasn't been this bad since freshman year of high school! And I had even stopped wearing makeup and wearing it only when I was going for events! But after I started using this my skin has started clearing out and now I only get those occasional break outs!

                        A:

                        The Cucumber Cleansing Lotion is one of our most universal toners. It helps to thoroughly cleanse the skin to remove pore-clogging build up and condition the skin with cucumber extract. Similarly, the Special Cucumber Lotion contains cucumber extract, however this product is a stronger formulation. If you are more prone to acne and breakout, we would suggest the Special Cucumber Lotion.

                    • Q:

                      Is this a toner or lotion?

                      I have bought a acene starter kit before. I like the cleanser & drying lotion so I re-bought a larger size in cleanser. But I want to know the complete steps procedure for acene care in Mario Badescu.

                      What should be my toner & I honestly didn't like the spf15 lotion in the kit. Made me oily when I thought it's an acene kit.

                      & what is the Rose water actually for?? I heard quite a bit about it.

                      I live in Kansas & I like to look absolutely matte, no shine. No dewy or oily grease looks.

                        You should start by incorporating our Glycolic Foaming Cleanser into your skin care routine 2-3 times per week. This will work on any discoloration and any fine lines that you may have. Our Regimen Kit Combo/Oily contains a toner more suitable for your skin and features a collection of products that may be best suited for your skin type. http://www.ulta.com/regimen-kit-combinationoily?productId=xlsImpprod6200817

                        You can use both toners to suit your skin's current condition and needs. The Glycolic Acid Toner will address the skin discoloration but it is not recommended for active acne erupted areas. Some people actually apply the different toners by zones. Apply the Special Cucumber Lotion to oily, acne prone areas and the Glycolic Acid Toner everywhere else.
