Comments about Mario Badescu Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion:

The labeling lead me astray when lookimg for a different Badescu cleneanser to try. This product turned out to be a toner, not a cleanser...Thank goodness for Ultas generous return policy and helpful customer service.

    Comments about Mario Badescu Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion:

    I have combo skin, with major oily parts and major dry part. This stuff regulates my oil without stripping my dry parts, and it also has helped calm my redness. I'd say it's not a miracle worker, but it's also not marketed as such. It's just a great addition to your existing routine.

    Don't care for it

    By Lynn

    from San Jose

    Verified Reviewer

    Comments about Mario Badescu Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion:

    I don't care for this. It doesn't strip my skin dry and tight which is good. I don't like it cause the toner comes out orange so I can't tell if it really gets the last of my foundation off or not. It also leaves a sticky film feeling on my face.

        I love this toner. It soothes and cleanses with out drying out my skin. My daily/weekly routine includes: Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Cleanser, this toner, CLe Jour de Chanel, La Nuit de Chanel, Le Weekend De Chanel, Oil of Olay for sensitive skin and Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream. I have oily skin and have searched for years for a skin care routine that will keep my skin balanced and healthy. The cost to benefit ratio of Mario Badescu products is superb. Because of the value, I am able to splurge on the Chanel system.

          Comments about Mario Badescu Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion:

          I was running out of my Glycolic toner which didnt impress me much so I researched and decided to try this one. OMD first time in my life the little bumps I had under my eye area almost disappeared. My complexion is brighter and several people have seen my pictures and noticed glowing skin. Downside is I am being acused of being pregnant lol.

          I recommend this toner. I keep it in the fridge and its nice to use it cool in summer.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion:

              I received this in the Brightening Kit, looking for something to gently exfoliate my skin as I tend to be rough on it in an attempt to control EXCESSIVE oil.

              I've used this for a little over a week and, for the first time in my 40 years, I can go ALL DAY without blotting (I normally would have to blot at least every couple of hours and touch up with powder by lunch, with most traces of makeup melted away by the end of work.). My makeup actually lasts all day now, and I feel it takes less makeup to get even coverage.

              I would be careful if you do not have oily skin though. Today my skin actually felt tight and dry - something I've never experienced before - so I think I'm going to decrease the frequency of application, but I'm so thrilled to have found something that will actually decrease my insane oil!

                I like this product. I use it during the day to remove dirt and oil and at night after washing my face to remove any left make up. It's good but I didn't really notice any results from it besides the clean skin.
