      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 don't experience any oily spells or tight, itchy skin. I usually hit one extreme or the other. It is nice to be balanced.

        I was using it once a day and wasn't getting the exact results I'd like: clearer skin, glowing skin, fast results. But I began to use it twice a day and love it. I'm getting everything I have been asking for, it just takes a little time and patience!

          My skin is extremely sensitive and this is the only face wash and moisturizer combo I can use without my face breaking out in small bumps. Love how clean it makes my face feel, love the scent, love everything about it.

          perfect fit for my skin

          Comments about Mario Badescu Botanical Facial Gel:

          I have oily/combo skin and this product has solved so many problems-- acne, blemishes, random redness... I started using it in combination with mario's drying lotion at first, and between these two products my face is 99% clearer. It took a few weeks to see the complete transformation but it's so worth it! It also works great with the clarisonic; leaves my face feeling so silky smooth and extremely clean every time.

          Comments about Mario Badescu Botanical Facial Gel:

          i have sensitive, oily, acne prone skin. this produce is EXTREMELY gentle. It didn't clean my skin very well unless i used my clara sonic, if i only used my hands i would have to wash my face 2+ times to complete remove build-up. It didn't cause my breakouts to flare up, but it didn't help it either. the product has a subtle floral smell. i would only recommend this if you have very sensitive and dry skin with no acne.

            I have used this product for years and I love the way my skin looks and feels. It is clean and not overworked. I like that it has very few ingredients also - only about 7 and that's all it takes! Once you find something that works well, you stick with it. I am "stuck" on this face wash.

            Comments about Mario Badescu Botanical Facial Gel:

            This is my first 'adult' face cleanser. I always stuck with Clean & Clear due to oily/acne skin. My face was clear using C&C, but I felt it was time to 'expand' my skincare. I was shocked that my face didn't break out. I still had the clear skin even though it doesn't have salicylic acid in it. It's really nice! I have been using it for over a year. I just wish they still sold the big bottle.

              This is a gentle cleanser and doesn't irritate the skin. I don't see it being refreshing as the description states but it is a good daily cleanser.

                  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:
