          It works great for my Oily Skin

          By Reduced My Oily Skin

          from Redlands

          Comments about Mario Badescu Botanical Facial Gel:

          I LOVE this cleanser. It has reduced my oily skin immensely. it has a great smell, and is gentle on the skin. My only complaint is it doesn't foam, or anything. While washing my face it doesn't feel like anything is happening until after I rinse. But it does work for my skin type and I'm glad I don't look like a greasey mess.

          My husband loves this product, however it is too gentle for me and it doesn't clean my face nor does it remove my makeup. Made me breaks out but works perfectly for my husband.

          I really enjoy all of this brands products. Previous to this purchase I had received a sampling kit as a gift and loved every item within the sample kit. I really love the natural ingredients and the fact the lines products are not tested on animals, two key requirements when I make a beauty purchase. This product was inexpensive and has lasted me forever! I also love the smell and the clean feeling after I wash my face. The only complaints I have is that it irritated my eyes when I accidentally got it in them and I am not the biggest fan of the gel consistency.

                Comments about Mario Badescu Botanical Facial Gel:

                I bought this after using a few other Mario Badescu products. I needed something to gently exfoliate my sensitive skin because I was having a lot of dead cell buildup. This removed the buildup and left my skin soothed, smooth, and healthy.

                    I have breakouts often, would you recommend this or the acne facial cleanser? I don't wanna dry my skin out. I have oily skin but dry during winter.

                      A:

                      The Acne Facial Cleanser is a great option for your acne prone combination/oily skin. Should twice daily use be too drying for your skin in the winter, you may want to consider alternating usage with Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel.

                  • Q:

                      Botanical Facial Gel is ideal for oily skin and features an exfoliating alpha hydroxy formula that helps prevent build-up that can cause blackheads and pimples. Another great option for acne-prone skin is the Acne Facial Cleanser, which features salicylic acid to fight acne blemishes:
