      Comments about Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel:

      I use this cleansing gel along with the toner and moisturizer day/night. I really like this product. I have sensitive/oily/acne pron skin and I am 30 years old. I have been trying products left and right and happened to stumble upon this after doing some research and I am glad I did. It really works great. After once day I saw a difference in my skin in a positive way. However, I recommend if you do wear make-up to use the toner as well. That removes the make-up completely. Not every product is going to work for every skin type. I give this a 4 star rating only because if your only using this cleansing gel then it does not clean the face completely leaving make-up residue. I will continue to use this product along with the toner and moisturizers.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel:

        I usually just use a St. Ives cleanser but decided to branch out and go for a brand name product. I was very disappointed with this product. I didn't feel like this product cleaned my face well at all. When I would go in with my cotton pad and toner, there was still TONS of stuff leftover.

        I use this in my morning and night routine. I've noticed an improvement in the overall texture of my skin. It also has made somewhat of a difference with hormonal acne. The only downside is you have to remove your makeup with a separate makeup remover beforehand.

        Bought this and the Moisturizer w/30 SPF. Did nothing. Hated it. Gave it a full 90days, by which time Ulta cld not accept refund. The wash does NOT penetrate into your skin at all. The moisturizer was so thick and pasty it left whitish residue and you had to either add water in your hand or have your face really wet.

            I have cystic acne and have struggled with it for over two years now. I have struggled to find anything that balanced my skin out. This is the first product that I have found that clears my skin up. I used to use anti bacterial soap which was awful for my skin but at least kept the acne to a minimum now that I have been using this face wash for 3 weeks mostly twice a day my skin is 95% clear. I have not seen it this clear in years. I follow up with the toner after every wash as well.

            • Q:

              I currently use the Acne Facial Cleanser and it works amazingly. i have very little acne it is mostly on my forehead and sides of my face. I occasionally get some above or near my eyebrows. Should I switch over to this or stay with the Acne facial cleanser?

                A:

                It sounds like the Acne Facial Cleanser is working for you, so you should not switch it. Rather, to address those minor trouble spots, you could try using the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser 1-3 times per week to gently exfoliate away pore clogging buildup. If they are small under the surface bumps, you could spot treat with the Drying Cream.

              Would you use this product to remove makeup before using the Acne Starter Kit?

                A:

                The Acne Facial Cleanser in the Acne Starter Kit will remove makeup. You can alternate between using the Enzyme Cleansing Gel and the Acne Facial Cleanser, if you'd like, but you should not use both at the same time.
