    Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cleansing Lotion C:

    I use this product in the am and pm after I wash my face. This gets anything my cleanser did not get and leaves my face feeling fresh. This helps keep my face clear and is one of the best toners I have ever used. I have bought this product about three times and empty every bottle. The price for such a product is cheaper and more effective than other high end brands.

      I use this toner twice daily after every wash and really like the way it leaves my skin feeling refreshed and clean. It does smell bad however, but you get used to the smell.

        does not over dry!

        By Emm004

        from Oklahoma

        Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cleansing Lotion C:

        I have combo/oily, sensitive, acne prone skin. I used to use proactive but it always seemed to be too strong for my skin. My face always looked pink like it had a light sunburn. No good. I use this toner after the Enzyme Cleansing Gel and I love the combination of the two products. They don't irritate my skin and don't dry it out. My pores look smaller and my skin does not produce much oil throughout the day. I definitely would recommend this to anyone with similar skin issues.

          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

          • Makes My Pores Huge

          Best Uses

          • Acne-Prone Skin
          • 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.

          Pros

          Cons

            Best Uses

            • 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!!

              This does cut through the oil on my skin. It helps to reduce the severity of my acne.

                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.
