      Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cleansing Lotion C:

      I was hesitant at first about using this product and going with a more expensive OTC product. But after battling adult acne for 2 years I decided to dive in and use this product that was recommended to me and it works absolutely great and last a very long time it's worth every cent.

      Great for Acne, Downside is Crater Pores

      • Not Greasy

      Cons

      • Dries Out Skin

      Best Uses

      • Oily Skin

      Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cleansing Lotion C:

      This product is great for my acne. When I get bad bouts of breakouts that my prescription won't get rid of or when I got breakouts when I decided to take myself off of the rx that I had been on for a decade, this really does the trick. The problem is that it causes my pores to look huge and it causes dry skin, a combo which results in a mess once I put on my liquid foundation. This is a pretty big deal to me because, when I am not using this product, not even my own mom can tell that I am wearing foundation.

      I am going to use the rest of my bottle on my forehead only, where the enlarged pore effect is minimal; then I am going to switch to something from their line that is intended for both dry and acne-prone skin. I can't use this product in the winter. I can get by with it in Spring and Summer, but it's a definite no-no for me during Fall and Winter. I would recommend this product only if you don't have dry skin in spots and if you don't have issues with large pores. It really does great for acne.

      Special Cleasing Lotion C

      By Sarah B

      from PA

      Pros

      • Improves Skin Texture
      • Leaves Clean Feel
      • Not Greasy

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Acne-Prone Skin
        • Oily Skin

        Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cleansing Lotion C:

        Since using the Mario Badescu line my skin has totally improved!! My very very oily skin is now much more balanced and I think it is mostly due to using the Cleasing Lotion C. I also use the Enzyme Cleanser, Buffering Lotion, and Glycolic Gel. My skin is not sensitive at all by any means so I am able to use these products on a daily basis. My cystic acne has cleared up A LOT and my skin not even close to being as oily. I have totally ditched Proactiv Plus which was so so to clear my acne. Oily and ance prone girls give this line a try!!

                Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cleansing Lotion C:

                I was going to get the Special Cucumber lotion because that is what comes with the Acne Starter Kit and I was wanting to try their toners to see if it would work better together and it does! I love the acne cleanser and with this, they work miracles! This toner seemed to be "more aggressive" as it is described, so that appealed to my skin type more. I have cystic acne prone skin, very oily (which the cystic acne may be from my clairisonic but not sure). Using this after the cleanser leaves you feeling even cleaner skin, more refreshed, more balanced and is not too harsh, even on irritated areas. Does its job nicely and I love this. My face doesn't feel the same without using this after cleansing.

                    A:

                    The Special Cleansing Lotion C is meant for problematic skin with daily breakouts and is stronger than Special Cucumber Lotion. If you have occasional acne breakouts, we recommend instead using Special Cucumber Lotion.
