    Comments about Mario Badescu Travel Size Acne Facial Cleanser:

    Used it more or less every day, hoping it would help with my congested pores and acne with the salicylic acid and all. Unfortunately it seemed to "lightly" cleanse as it reads on the label, but it always felt and looked like I had so much oil and grossness left on my face from the day. Mind you, these were days where I would be wearing moisturiser at most!

      Comments about Mario Badescu Travel Size Acne Facial Cleanser:

      I purchased the smaller face wash to test out the product and brand, but I am definitely going to purchase the larger size ASAP! What I love, is that I don't need too much of the product when using AND my skin feels amazing after washing. I purchased this like, 2 weeks ago and I still have a significant amount left.

        Powerful light weight formula. A little goes a long way. Clears and prevents breakouts when used twice daily.

            It smells and feels like hair gel. Tried it a few times but it's not for me! I love Mario Badescu products but I will go back to the glycolic face wash.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Travel Size Acne Facial Cleanser:

              I picked this up from the impulse bin just to see if it'd work for me and does it ever! I have really sensitive, red, combination skin and finding skincare products that help tone down my redness has been my mission for a little while now. I love the packaging of this product, I love how it makes my skin feel, I love how it keeps my breakouts at bay. If you have red, combo, sensitive skin, I'd definitely give this a shot.

                    Comments about Mario Badescu Travel Size Acne Facial Cleanser:

                    Exactly what my skin needed. My skin has become very picky about what I use on it. I've been using Cetaphil but it doesn't get rid of the greasy buildup on my face or the last of my makeup. I tried the enzyme cleanser from MB as well and didn't do the trick either. This, however, removes the perfect amount of oil from my skin. Doesn't dry me out but no oil slick is left behind. This plus the Special Cleansing Lotion C have been magic for my skin.

                        The Acne Facial Cleanser will remove makeup. If you use long wear or HD makeup an additional makeup remover is recommended.

                    • Q:

                      I'm looking for a nice gentle cleanser that does not dry out skin and also does not put moisture on the skin. just a very mild cleanser. I have breakouts but my skin is not oily so if I use cleansers for oily skin it makes my skin feel tight. I'm not really dry more I guess normal combo. what is the best cleanser for me? also, what is a really super light moisturizer that is oil free and doesn't cause break outs? thank you

                        A:

                        Acne Facial Cleanser is specially formulated to address acne-prone or acne-erupted skin. It will not directly shrink your pores or remove blackheads, but it is formulated with Salicylic Acid to deep clean your pores, which over time will lead to less clogged pores and a reduction of blackheads and large pores.
