        It didn't do anything for me, and the smell was bad. Wouldn't repurchase.

          I love this cleanser. This is the first time I have used a cleanser that wasn't foaming. It took a time or two to get used to but now I love it. It cleans my skin and takes off all my makeup! My skin feels silky smooth after I wash it and my skin looks better than every. I use this morning and night!

          Comments about Mario Badescu Botanical Facial Gel:

          I have loved every Mario product I've tried before, and this is the first one I haven't been head-over-heels about. It's fairly effective- removes some makeup, smells okay, quite balancing for my acne-prone skin... but it stings my eyes, even though I try to avoid that area during cleansing (I usually just remove eye makeup with coconut oil). Even if a little of the gel rinses into my eyes, it does burn, and I do not have sensitive skin or eyes at all. I'm not sure if it's the AHA's or what. I'll probably keep this in my shower to use with my Clarisonic, just because it will rinse out of my eyes faster that way. Will use it up, but won't repurchase.

          Wet face first and then use gel. I use a wash cloth to remove gel. Be aware the gel does not foam up.

            I use this facial wash in the morning and in the evening. I really like that it does not create suds or any sort of foam. It goes on like a gel and the consistency is the same as you wash your face. It does not over-dry my skin, and it smells wonderful! It is a great pick-me-up in the shower, and does well with removing makeup.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Botanical Facial Gel:

              I love this face wash. It's only been about a month, but I can tell a difference in my skin. When I started, I was having a bad reaction from a different brand's moisturizer. My cheeks were red, bumpy, itchy, and felt tight. This soothed my skin, made it smooth and soft. I also naturally have combination skin, very oily in my T-zone and very dry everywhere else. This product has really helped to balance that out. No more dry patches or oil puddles. My chin is clearing up, too. I have the occasional hormonal breakout, but I always had these persistent white bumps all around my chin. Congested skin, I think it's called. While it hasn't completely gone away, it's definitely getting there. The bumps are much smaller, less noticeable, and some have gone away completely. I do agree that it feels odd, like it might not be working, because it doesn't foam. But, trust me, it is, and it leaves my skin squeaky clean after. I use this with the Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion and the Hydro Moisturizer with Vitamin C. I love them all!

                Comments about Mario Badescu Botanical Facial Gel:

                I have suffered from oily, acne-prone skin for over 10 years. I wish I had found this entire line sooner. This is one of my favorite products I use now. I use it twice a day and from the very first day I have noticed a significant reduction in the oiliness of my skin. I used to have to powder my face several times during the day to not look greasy, and now I can basically just get by with one or two touch ups!

                It is very gentle on my skin and it really does leave your skin feeling clean. It was weird to use at first because it is a gel and not a foaming cleanser, so I wasn't sure I was really washing my face well enough. But now that I found this I will never go back. I hardly have any break outs anymore, and when I do they are very small and easy to contain.

                I have had problem skin with nodular, cystic acne for years, and have tried everything from OTC products to expensive prescriptions. I have NEVER had something work as well on my skin as this cleanser. I used it at night, and literally saw amazing results by the next morning. This has very quickly become my holy grail cleanser.
