    Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion:

    I love this toner. I am probably on my 6th bottle. I keep this toner in my skincare routine, along with other products from Mario Badescu. This toner is perfect for taking off leftover makeup after cleansing. I have combo acne-prone skin that is also sensitive and I get dry flaky patches on my cheeks and nose in the winter. This toner is not drying at all and leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh, and helps control my acne by clearing my pores. I also use the Glycolic cleansing lotion, which has greatly improved my skin texture. That toner can be drying so I alternate b.w these two usually. I have also used the alpha grapefruit glycolic toner and that helped diminish dark spots from acne scars and scarring from a car accident. I love these toners soo much! Definitely recommend any of these products, the special cucumber cleansing lotion being my #1 and my holy grail!! :)

      Nice smell and leaves my face feeling cleaner when I use after cleansing with a face wash. Surprisingly, it does not make my face feel stingy or tight in the winter months, even though the second listed ingredient is Isopropyl Alcohol.

        I tone with this product after cleansing my face with the Mario badescu acne cleanser. Following with the Mario badescu rose hip nourishing oil and rose water hydrating spray. I am usually a budget shopper but this product line is so worth the extra few dollars.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion:

        i have used it for a few days. Scent and feeling after is wonderful. However, I feel it may be a little drying. I will probably be using it every other day rather than twice daily. It kind of bothers me that it has artificial yellow color and fragrance that is listed in the ingredients. I expected no color or its natural color and no fragrance.

          Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion:

          My struggle with acne began when I became an adult! As a teenager a got a few pimples mostly around the time of the month but as an adult my acne has been on full force, I have acne prone, oily and sensitive skin. I have tried everything! I visited numerous dermatologists who have prescribed antibiotics, epiduo, benzol peroxide creams, sulfur face wash, salicylic acid face wash. I have also tried face peels, proactiv, murad, Neutrogena, clean and clear, clarisonic products. Out of everything I've tried, antibiotics was the only thing that gave me true results, but you can't be on it past 3 months. The last visit to a dermatologists he suggested I try Accutane, but after reading all the short term and long term possible side effects there is no way I would try it. I believe my acne is due to genetics..I clean my phone often, I change my pillowcase 3x week, I don't pick on my face, don't eat junk food, yet I still get acne. A friend suggested I use the clarisonic to help with my acne and that was a big mistake, DO NOT use the clarisonic if you have sensitive skin. I bought the delicate brush thinking it might not irritate my skin but I was wrong, I kept breaking out every time I would use it.

          After weeks upon weeks of research I ran into Mario Badescu products. For the past 2 months I have been using the MB acne facial cleanser, (glycolic foaming cleanser 2x week), special cucumber lotion (toner), and the Neutrogena rapid clear acne defense lotion. I wash my face morning and night and have seen a 75% improvement on my acne, blemishes and overall brightness of my skin. I still get pimples but not as many (maybe 1-2 a week and not as big). Recently I bought the cucumber cleansing lotion to alternate with the special cucumber lotion. I recommend these products to everyone; I've seen the results. Now I'm searching for a good face mask to speed up the blemishes.

            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!
