        Received a sample of this in a kit and made sure to pick some up before I ran out. I use it at night after cleansing and before moisturizing with an exfoliating cotton pad. I've never used anything that has made my skin feel this clean.

          Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

          I use this nightly after I cleanse my face and it's amazing. It helps to keep my skin clear and after I've had a few breakouts it speeds up the healing and fades the discoloration. The only drawback is that it can be a little drying at first but just use a good moisturizer afterwards and you're good to go!

            Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

            I use this twice a day and I have been using it for about 2 months. I have found that it has helped the marks left behind by acne on my face. It has also helped the texture and cleans out my pores. I don't have active acne if I do get breakouts it's very few and not cystic. I would not recommend using it on your face if you have very severe active breakouts. It states on the packaging not to use on acne erupted skin. If you are looking to even out skin tone in an affordable way buy this! I love mario badescu products!

              Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

              I have skin that is oily in the summer, dry in the winter, and sensitive/rosacea-prone all year round! Most products contain oils or chemical compounds that aggravate or break out my skin, so I approach new products very carefully.

              That being said, I have been using this toner (morning and evening) for about a week and (knock on wood!) the results have been splendid! My skin is calmer and clearer. The dry skin cells caused by lack of humidity have been sloughed off - leaving fewer clogged pores and a clean, smooth, glowing surface.

              So far, I am beyond satisfied. I hope that this product continues to work this well as the weeks go on! If so, I won't hesitate to return and amend my review to 5 stars.

              I was really hopin for this to work because i heard so many good reviews; but i found that it gave me little bumps/ acne on my forehead, and gave me blackheads on my nose. I do have combination skin. My t-zone gets really oily, while my cheeks are pretty normal.

                Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

                Despite the fact that this contains glycolic acid it is surprisingly gentle. Both my boyfriend and I use it 2x a day and we don't experiemce any dryness, irritation or redness. We don't suffer from wrinkles yet so I can't say how effective it is on that but I do suffer from sun pigmentation problems and it seems to slowly be fading them. This also removes excess dirt and makeup that cleanser didn't remove. For the price of this you can't go wrong.

                    A:

                    The Glycolic Acid Toner will help remove additional cleanser and makeup left on the skin. It is formulated to help gently exfoliate the skin to help brighten and reduce discoloration. Mario Badescu does not have a toner that will tighten pores.

                  For Black Friday I bought the kit that included a travel size of this toner. I went to the store to purchase the full size. The one in the store is clear and for skin type CD. My travel one is blue and labeled for skin type CDS. Is there a difference? Is the one on the website for sensitive skin?

                    Mario Badescu indicates that this product is ideal for both combination and dry skin types. For those with sensitive skin, you may still use this product; however, it does contain glycolic acid, which can be stimulating. The reason the product in-store is clear instead of blue is that the UV from the shelving lighting alters its color; however, the formula is not compromised and it is just as effective! We hope this info helps!

                    A:

                    Glycolic Acid Toner is not recommended for active acne breakouts. Our Special Cleansing Lotion C (Item #: 2210011) is a better option for oily skin or our Special Cucumber Lotion (Item #: 2210009) for Combo/Oily. Once breakouts are under control, then you can use our Glycolic Acid Toner to help with discolorations.
