      I am loving this product! It has fade away my dark spots from my acne and my skin texture has improved. It's very gentle on the skin, does not contain alcohol. Which makes it the perfect toner. I don't mind the packaging thus keeps the cost low for the consumer, however, I would appreciate a seal when you first purchase it, to protect the product from contamination.

        I will never use any other toner! This is gentle yet very effective! I have very dry skin & this leaves my face feeling super clean & refreshed without the harsh alcohol like most toners.

          By Kiersten

          from Rochester, NY

          Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

          I have been using this stuff every morning and night, along with the whitening mask every now and then, for a week to help with my acne scars. I love it. I already see a dramatic difference in my skin. I have tried everything to get rid of these scars and I almost went as drastic as to get a professional chemical peel, but then I found this duo. I feel so much more confident and I don't feel like I need to wear as much makeup. It sounds corny but this changed my life and I can't wait for more results in the future! Thank you Mario

            I have only been using this toner for a few weeks and so far I like it. I have cystic acne and combination skin and it seems to be helping. I love that it's non drying and it has a light clean scent.

            I pair this product with the Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Foaming Cleanser and I can definitely say that this product is the Holy Grail of skin care. Though glycolic acid is used in anti-aging products, I use those these two products to control my acne and they have made SUCH a difference in my skin. I DEFINITELY recommend this product!

              Make sure to do a patch test before putting it all over your face guys !!!

              I don't consider my skin to be sensitive , I have dry , a bit of flakey skin going on, old acne scars , and pigmentation. I added this product to my daily regimen , and right after using it it feels moisturizing , and clean feel . I used it 3 times and then I noticed my forehead started to get textured , small bumps all over and my cheeks seem thick and drier then usual. I immediately stopped using it , I went from smooth face to bumpy and textured face :( maybe a should of taking it slow and used it sparingly through the week and not day and night .

                I use this to tone at night to help my skin absorb my lotions and potions better. It makes my skin feel clean without over drying it. Smells nice and I think it works great.

                    A:

                    Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner contains glycolic acid which you would not want to get into your eyes so we do not recommend using it as a facial spray. Rather, our fan-favorite Facial Spray With Aloe, Herb and Rosewater (Item #: 2209889) can be used as a toner and a facial spray.
