MIRACLE CURE!!!

By Chelle

from Far far Away

Comments about Mario Badescu Acne Facial Cleanser:

I recently started getting adult acne and I'm 24. Having never dealt with acne as a teenager, I didn't know what to do as an adult, so I did some research and found this line. I have to admit, after using this product for about two weeks my acne got worse and worse. I decided to just power through it and keep using the face wash, I use it every morning and every night. And my acne has been slowly disappearing! I get comments from my husband and friends and family on how nice my complexion is looking!! I also have been using the drying lotion in the small bottle as well and it's been amazing! I highly suggest both of those products!! Thank you Mario!!!

    Comments about Mario Badescu Acne Facial Cleanser:

    I have struggled with acne all of my life and have used what seems like every product on the market but none worked. I picked this up thinking I would give it a try and was not expecting much out of it. I was proved wrong!! This cleanser is amazing it actually cleared my skin without drying it out. This was my first Mario Badescu product and now I can't get enough, I am completely obsessed with this brand! Would definitely suggest.

      Discovered Badescu a couple of years ago - works well on my adult acne - no more huge cyst like bumps and keeps my skin pretty well clear.

            It was a okay product, last time I bought it, it was little soapy. This time it was more watery and no different then any other acne cleanser. Nothing special.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Acne Facial Cleanser:

              I use this product in the shower. I wash my face first with dove soap to remove my makeup and then follow with this cleanser. I don't have to use a lot, just a small squeeze. I use my fingertips and gently rub it all over my face, and over the affected areas. At first I though it wouldn't work because it is so gentle and doesn't form a lather which made me wonder if it was "working." After the shower, I let my face air dry and then with clean hands put on Mario Badescu's A.H.A. & Ceramide Moisturizer. Together it has improved my skin dramatically. I started using Mario Badescu's product on March 29, and began taking pictures every 1-2 weeks to see if my skin was improving. It definitely has improved and no other product has been able to do this. It is now August 4, and my skin is more clear than it has ever been. The scars I hated and attempted to cover with makeup have faded away and I have had 1-2 pimples but even those disappear quickly and the scars fade fast. Don't feel discouraged if you get a pimple, take pictures and continue, you will see it works! I am extremely happy! Also, I have not had to purchase another bottle of either one; but I will soon, since I'm almost out, and I use both every single day. Definitely worth the money!

                  I used the Acne Facial Cleanser before and it worked great. I decided to switch for some crazy reason and my face went back to how it was before using the Acne Facial Cleanser. To say the least, I went back to the Acne Facial cleanser just recently and I have had no major breakouts.

                      I have been using proactive for years, due to my cystic acne, which always worked so-so. I found the acne starter kit by MB at ulta one day and tried it out. I am now hooked. MB has changed my skin! I dont think this cleanser by itslef would do much for me, but in combination with the Special "c" toner, and oil free moisterizer I have clear skin for the first time in my life. Love these Products!

                          Although Mario Badescu Acne Facial Cleanser would be considered gluten-free, Mario Badescu does not manufacture their products in a gluten-free facility. Please note, that although Mario Badescu does make every attempt to sterilize equipment between production, Mario Badescu products are manufactured on the same machines.

                          The Acne Facial Cleanser is recommended for mild to moderate acne. It is formulated with salicylic acid to help clear and prevent acne.

                          A:

                          Between the microdermabrasion and chemical peels, it seems like your skin is receiving ample exfoliation. The salicylic acid in the Acne Facial Cleanser will be adding another source of exfoliation, and might aggravate your skin with too much exfoliation. We would recommend Mario Badescu Seaweed Cleansing Soap to provide gentle, mild exfoliation:

                          The Acne Facial Cleanser works best for combination/oily skin that is blemish-prone. For dry and sensitive skin types that are blemish-prone, rather than using twice daily, we suggest using in rotation with another cleanser such as the Seaweed Cleansing Soap (Item #: 2209936), either once daily or every other day, for best results.

                          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.
