    Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion:

    I never used to use a toner or a moisturizer on my face and it was covered in little face demons (acne)
    Within about a week of using it faithfully with the Mario Badescu acne cleanser and the Mario Badescu oil free moisturizer, I saw very real results! Now, I can't live without it!

        Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion:

        There is a comment that says it does not remove make up, which is correct. That is not what this product is meant to do. However, after you use this on a cotton ball you can see just how amazing this lotion is. All the dirt and grime left in your pores even after you wash your face comes out and your skin is left feeling refreshed and so clean. Product smells AMAZING. So happy with this purchase.

        This toner smells amazing, it is refreshing. Your skin feels clean but does not tighten the skin in a drying way.

          Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion:

          I have bought this product two times and the only problem I have is that I wish there was a larger size. I use it twice a day, in the morning and at night, and it is my favorite product from M.B. My favorite thing about this product is that is reduces redness. I have oily skin which is also sensitive and dry at the same time, and the Special Cucumber Lotion reduces the dryness, and does not make my skin oily, it also has no scent which is a bonus because a lot of M.B. products have a fairly distinct smell which I do not like. I also accidentally bought the Cucumber cleansing lotion because of the similar color and name, and it also works like a charm. 10/10

                    Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion is used to dry up existing acne blemishes. It will not address old acne scars.

                    A:

                    Special Cucumber Lotion may be too strong for your sensitive skin. You should be using Mario Badescu Aloe Lotion (Item #: 2210019). This is our toner specially designed for acne-prone sensitive skin. Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion (Item #: 2209805) is also a great product to keep on hand. It is specifically designed to treat large, deep, cystic acne
