Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cleansing Lotion C:

This product is okay I am using with the acne cleanser and aha moisturizer and I use the toner only on my problem areas, I had tried the special cucumber lotion, but wanted a stronger toner, its ok, whish it worked better though.

worked so well I returned it

By aloosha

Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cleansing Lotion C:

This work SO WELL to clear me up from one breakout I had. However, I have post Accutane skin, so I have to be careful with what I use. It dried me out way too much, but it DEFINITELY is worth a shot if you're struggling with super oily skin. I had to take it back and get something a little less drying for my skin, but it was great for the whole week I used it. Just make sure to moisturize after.

Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cleansing Lotion C:

This works great at controlling oily areas. I use it on my T-zone where I tend to breakout more often, otherwise it dries out my cheeks. I've only been using for a couple of weeks, but so far this has controlled oil and reduced my monthly breakouts.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cleansing Lotion C:

      I was warned that this product is for serious acne- however I have moderate acne just on the chin, and I find this product to be exactly what I need. It cleans but doesn't feel stripping. The tone and breakouts of the chin area have reduced drastically.

          Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cleansing Lotion C:

          I was really hoping this product would fight an eruption that came up on my face a few weeks ago. So far, there has been no difference since I purchased this product. I have had this happen with previous Mario Badescu acne products in the past but thought I would try again. Still disappointed. I will continue to use until the product is all gone but will not re-purchase.

            The more Mario Badescu I try, the more I am impressed. I am 47 and still have acne. I've tried every price point and this is the best I've tried so far. I love I can pronounce all of the ingredients. Just make sure you shake the bottle really well before use, you will see ingredients seem to settle in the bottom. It leaves my skin clean, super soft, and not tight in the least. It has stopped all monthly breakouts as well. Definitely my summertime tonic!

                Is this product safe for sensitive skin? Alot of strong acne products that I've used in the past have only made my acne worse because they were too strong for my sensitive skin

                  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.
