Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Skin Renewal Complex:

I've used this glycolic renewal night cream for 4 to 5 years now and I can say that my very sensitive , red blotchy and dry areas are greatly reduced with regular and continued use and I can say that because there have been times when I ran out and used something else. I know that my skin changes with the seasons like everyone's , but I always recommend this as my go to for every season. Sometimes I buddy it with a vitamin C serum from Mario's line depending . Love it !! Might cost a little more but a little goes a long way !!

            Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Skin Renewal Complex:

            I have had dry texture bumps on my forehead for MONTHS. I have tried everything. Clarisonic was exfoliating enough, scrubs weren't doing it, masks, etc. I went to ULTA to get advise from their aesthetician and she was so clueless. She literally told me she didn't know what to recommend and that I should go to a dermatologist. (After she read the back of my HG Purity cleanser bottle trying to blame it). After that was over, I went straight to the MB isle and saw this. I hadn't tried an acid exfoliate so I thought i would give it a go. 2 weeks later after using this EVERY night, my skin is almost back to normal. Scared to stop using it now!

            Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Skin Renewal Complex:

            I'm 52 with fine wrinkles, yet still break out. This cream seemed promising . It's not nearly as expensive as many other creams. It feels hydrating, and caused a big breakout. I'm wondering if it was the isopropyl myristate? Ulta stores enable me to try products because they are so good about taking things back.

                A:

                Mario Badescu Brightening Kit features multiple products that address minor skin discoloration and anti-aging. The Glycolic Skin Renewal Complex is included in the kit as a sample. If you are looking for a single superstar multi-tasking product - Mario Badescu Vitamin C Serum is the one!

            • 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.
