Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

This stuff is amazing! My skin looks so much better since I began using this product. I use this twice a day after washing my face. I then follow it up with an alpha hydrox treatment. My skin has cleared up tremendously and looks and feels incredibly smooth!!

    Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

    Warning: this not recommended for acne-erupted skin!

    That's what it says on the back of the label in small print. I had no idea until now! I bought this because some youtubers raved about this product. I have acne-prone skin so I wanted something to help. I used it for about 3 weeks but didn't notice a difference. I don't think it made my skin worse but I also dont feel like it made it better or did anything at all. I just hoped it was balancing my skin. I also feel like I need to put a fair amount for me to feel like an even amount is being applied to my face. I have been using higher end toners (ex. Dior) and only a few drops whereas with this I need to saturate the cotton pad a bit more. Overall I'm not impressed and am actually scared to use it because of that warning on the label. Maybe it'll be better for maintaining and balancing normal flawless skin.

          I cleanse in shower, apply Mario Badescu glycolic acid toner immediately after and skin perfectly clean feel. Works great on pores. I use 10% glycolic aloe hydration gel and moisturizer. Then finish with tinted moisturizer with SPF.

                  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.

                  • Q:

                    I use this product religiously, and have seen a vast improvement in my skins texture. I have combination skin that tends to be dry on the cheeks, and oily in the T-zone area. Even though it's not meant for those with active breakouts, I do still use it when I get a pimple or two, and it seems to clear them quickly without drying my skin. My question is, what products would complement this one? Aside from the Glycolic Acid Toner, I also use the Facial Spray, and the Drying Lotion. These Mario Badescu products are the ONLY ones that have ever worked for my skin, and want to start using a cleanser, and moisturizer in this line.

                      A:

                      If you apply a small amount of the toner to a cotton round and apply it to a clean face by wiping in an outward direction until cotton comes up clean, your skin should not feel sticky after using the toner.

                      Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner is recommended for combination or dry skin types. We do not recommend using the product on acne erupted skin, rather the toner is great for smoothing uneven skin texture post acne breakouts.

                      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.
