        Comments about Mario Badescu Acne Facial Cleanser:

        I purchased the smallest size bottle to test this product out. It was one of my first Mario Badescu purchases. I used it daily, both morning and night, followed by a homemade lemon/witch hazel toner, and Mario Badescu's rose water mist in the morning and a Michael Todd moisturizer at night.

        I have oily, sensitive, acne-prone skin. My skin's texture is rough, I have acne scarring from years ago when I suffered FAR WORSE acne than I do today, but I do not get as much acne now.

        Although this product felt gentle and clean on my skin, I thought it did nothing to prevent and treat my current acne. I researched reviews on the product and someone suggested leaving the product on a little longer, then rinsing. Nada. Kind of disappointed, because I want to like Mario Badescu. I will not be purchasing this product again, but will try another cleanser within the brand.

          This is the best face wash ever!! Believe it or not, I'm 53 and I still have oily skin. My teenage son has some blemishes and he uses it too. It really does it's job and my skin feels really clean after I use it.

            I absolutely love this product! I use it daily in the shower and I feel my skin is getting much better, I hardly get any breakouts since I started using it. Mario Bedescu is an awesome brand and very affordable, I love all their products.

                Comments about Mario Badescu Acne Facial Cleanser:

                This has been my holy grail cleanser for over a year now. It is incredibly gentle on my skin and helps to keep blemishes at bay (except for the occassional hormonal spot or two). I use this in conjunction with the Mario Badescu Cucumber lotion which removes all of my leftover makeup and leaves my face looking and feeling clean.

                  Comments about Mario Badescu Acne Facial Cleanser:

                  This is a mild product that cleans my acne-prone skin effectively without "over-stripping" it like other cleansers have done. The product ingredients have been changed somewhat based upon comparison of my last bottle and the current one I am using, but I haven't noticed a difference in results. If you have mature skin that is prone to breakouts like mine, this product might be a good cleanser for you.

                    I just discovered this product and LOVE IT. I am 52; maturing skin that is still acne-prone. I have to use products with salicylic and glycolic acids so I use it in combination with the Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser. No breakouts, gentle but can be a little drying. You definitely need a moisturizer especially if you have maturing skin. I also use the Mario Badescu Buttermilk Moisturizer at night. Love all 3 products!

                        A:

                        You can certainly use this if you have no active acne breakouts to help prevent any from forming. It is the ideal cleanser for combination and oily skin types that are blemish-prone.
