      Helps to clear out the large pores I have on my chin, nose, and cheeks. My overall skin tone has evened out a bit as well.

        Great, effective product! Just use overnight as directed and expect superb results that are visible. Faded dark patch of skin on my right side of face within 2-3 uses! Yielded better results than my professionally administered TCA peel...

        Amazing product for congested skin

              Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Gel:

              This product is amazing. I have a concentrated area on my cheeks that is congested and has bumps and some blackheads. I tried this a couple times a week after washing my face before moisturizer. It works overnight. Skin is smoother, softer, fresher, and blackheads just pop out so much easier. If I have a breakout it is dramatically reduced. This product contains Glycolic acid which promotes cell turnover, and boy, it really does. I would recommend this for anyone. Any skin type. I have normal skin with some weird spots that are congested. AMAZING!!!

                      I use the product every 3 nights or so. It does a great job at removing congestion from my t-zone and acne prone areas. If used everyday it dries my skin. And use within 3 month since it seems to lose it's effectiveness after time. Love it though.

                          Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Gel:

                          I will try anything that claims to reduce pore size... I haven't found anything that actually works except for this. Most products I have found just either dry out my skin with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide or hide the pores by filling them up with some mixture of silicone. I have only used this once, but the Grand Canyon sized pore craters I have on the side of my nose were noticeably smaller by the morning. It didn't do much to make my smaller pores disappear, but the really big ones were much smaller. I am actually looking forward to using it again and am heading back to Ulta later today to buy the cleaner and toner. This actually worked better for me than some prescription products I got from my dermatologist!

                          Unfortunately, if you're like me, the only way to know is to try it out for yourself. I have marginally sensitive skin and noticed a slight stinging when I first applied it, but it did go away. AS I mentioned, I'm actually excited to use this again and see if long term use will be even better!
