        I love it! It cleans my face without drying it. I still don't know if it's softening my fine lines. I'm in my second bottle. Let's see

        New To Toners

        By Ddras

        from Ohio

        Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

        Picked this up in a multi sample "try it" kit.

        I have to say that I already notice a difference in the clarity of my skin. I had tiny tiny pimples up on my forehead hairline. They are gone! I also notice that my pores beside the nose area are becoming unclogged too. They look more refined.

        Nearing 50, I am using more "mature skin" lotions and cleansers. The addition of this to my anti-age routine seems to make my other products work even better.

        When I run out of the sample, I'll be buying the full size!

          Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

          I have been using this for just over a week and already see a huge difference in my skin. I don't normally practice super strict skincare. I use LUSH cleansers and organic moisturizers and that's about it. But I have a lot of redness and acne scars and just over-all dull skin. So I decided to use this. It leaves my skin looking so beautiful and healthy... It just glows. Not sure if it is helping my acne scars, but hopefully in time I will notice a difference. This does not dry out my skin at all and I normally have pretty dry skin.

                      (subclinical acne). I 'm reading all these great reviews but no one has mentioned anything about my problem. I'm left wondering if this product would be good for me to use. Any suggestions?
