    Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion:

    I recently purchased this toner because I was noticing I was getting really bad acne. I read that it would help with acne so I decided to try it out and I'm very happy I did! My acne is being kept at bay and no new spots are appearing. I use every morning and every night after cleansing my face. I love the smell and will repurchase when I run out! Great for skin that is oily and acne prone!

      Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion:

      I think they got this right. It removes make up even after I wash my face, but does not dry out my skin. When using using other astringent I'm used to a dry or peeling nose, and this is not a problem. I use it twice a day. The smell isn't too bad or great, it's mild.

          I've used most of Mario Badescu's products and this one isn't the best but definitely isn't the worst. Very gentle but seems to get rid of make up and dirt.

            Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion:

            I first got this as part of the acne kit. It leaves my skin feeling clean. The acne kit as a whole helped my skin so the toner must play some role, but I just can't say how effective it is if used independently.

            One bottle should last you a long time.

              for asian combination skin, I see this product is just ok, no irritating but not light weight if compare w other oil. i ve been used rosehip( much heavier), coconut, and this is the one i think its good for daily. no breakout but also no help with my skin, it just help my skin glow the morning after that. if you use regular moisturizer you can skip it or dont apply 2 at same time at night cuz it provides enough moist for ur skin
