    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.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

      This is now part of my twice a day skin routine! I have hormonal cystic acne and this does not irritate my skin, it improves skin texture. It does not however make a difference in my acne problems but nothing does so far anyways. My skin feels clean and refreshed after using this toner.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

        This is the single best thing I have bought for my skin ever. I have been trying and trying to reduce the hyper pigmentation from my acne prone skin and old scars for so long. I have spent hundreds on high end products trying to do everything this toner does. After the first use I saw immediate results and my skin continues to look and feel better and better. this is my new holy grail product. I love all MB products and I am always amazed at the price and the great effect they have on my skin.

        I love this toner. I was using Proactiv toner, but this is way better on my skin. It helped me get my acne under control, and I get more product for the money. My skin feels fresh and looks smooth.

        By Kristin

        Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

        Last time I had a fancy salon facial the lady sold me on buying some glycolic acid from her. Saying it would increase skin turnover rates and lead to clearer and more even skin tone. She was right and I loved her product until my friend showed me her Mario Badescu glycolic acid toner. Turns out it's the same exact thing as the fancy salon, but at half the price and a larger quantity! Needless to say I've been buying this product ever since through the mail. I'm glad to know Ulta is now carrying it and it's the same price as online, just minus the shipping. Score!

          I'm in my mid thirties and I started to notice that my skin looked dull, not as vibrant as it use to. I read how glycolic acid is a great chemical exfoliator. It is gentle enough for me to use daily and I do notice that my skin is brighter and is exfoliating/turn over new skin quickly. Love it, new staple product.

          Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

          I use all the Glycolic products that Mario B. Makes. It's like getting a mild peel for mature and sensitive skin. Decongests and renews your skin, best used daily and the night face cream and cleanser are great also. If you go to their website, you can put in your particular skin issues and get recommendations . Sometime you might feel a little stinging feeling but I have very sensitive skin and that feeling is just the produce working and does not linger. If it does than discontinue use.

            Leaves skin feeling very clean and fresh. If you have any scratches or blemishes you will definitely feel the sting, but it is brief and not unbearable. I also use a retinoid cream and even with daily use this is not drying out my skin.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

              I have sensitive, combination, acne-prone skin. I was afraid this would be too moisturizing and not clean my skin enough, but since my skin gets very dry in the winter, I decided to go for it. It works great at removing leftover grime and makeup and has reduced the amount of blackheads on my skin. READ THE WARNING to not use on acne-erupted skin (that you pick at.) It will irritate your blemishes like crazy, but only temporarily.

                      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!

                        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.

                        We do not suggest the Glycolic Acid Toner if you have active breakouts. You can use the Whitening Mask (Item #: 2209901) two to three times per week to reduce acne scars.
