    Comments about Mario Badescu Botanical Facial Gel:

    I used another cleanser from this product line and found it to be gentle, but, perhaps ineffective for my oily skin. I searched online for the suggested products for my skin type and purchased this cleanser. This product leaves your skin feeling clean and moisturized. Many cleansers aimed for oily skin tend to over-dry or irritate sensitive skin. The occasional break-out may still occur, but this cleanser seems to gently and effectively work. I very much consider the brand and the cost, but this product line is reasonably priced and packaged simply.

          Comments about Mario Badescu Botanical Facial Gel:

          I have very oily skin, and I tend to breakout especially when I'm on my period. However, ever since I used this product I don't breakout as much anymore. I use this at night after I remove my make-up. I tried using it to wash the make-up off my skin, but it wasn't as effective as described on the bottle, because I still had mascara residue in my lower lash line after thoroughly washing my face. I don't really care that it doesn't remove make-up well, because it does a better job in keeping my skin acne-free, which is more important to me. I use another product specifically to remove my make-up.

                    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.

                      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.

                        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:

                      Does this help with acne? If not could you recommend face wash and other face products that do? My skin is very oily,I get lots of breakouts on my checks & chin and I get blackheads really back on my nose and checks they're almost everywhere

                        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:
