Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

This toner has helped tremendously with my dry patches, it leaves my face feeling incredibly soft, like I never even had dry patches. I didn't notice any decrease in redness, but I'm honestly okay with that because of how it leaves my skin. Will be repurchasing.

    Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

    I have never had a bad Mario Badescu product, and this one is as great as the others. I have very sensitive skin, and dry. This effectively exfoliates my skin without drying it, or being harsh. It is very gentle. And my skin feels so soft after I use it. I use it every morning and it leaves my face feeling and looking great.

      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!!

          Does this help reduce acne marks?

          • Brand Expert

            A:

            A skin care regimen that includes gentle exfoliation - such as our Glycolic Acid Toner - will work to help fade acne scars over time.

        • Q:

          I mostly have acne scars on my cheeks and a few on my forehead and chin. Is it better to use this toner or the glycolic acid foaming cleanser for this problem?
          Asked on 5/28/2016 by Marianna

          1 answer

          • Brand Expert

            A:

            Both the Glycolic Acid Toner and Glycolic Foaming Cleanser are great options. The better option for you depends on your skin type. The Glycolic Foaming Cleanser is recommended for all skin types, while the Glycolic Acid Toner is NOT recommended for sensitive skin.

            A:

            When pregnant, we always recommend consulting with your OBGYN before using any products, as he/she would be able to best advise which products to use and which to avoid.

        • 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.

          This product leaves my skin sticky after I apply it, is that normal?

          1 answer

          • Brand Expert

            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.

        • Q:

          Does it work on combination skin?
          And does It help in reducing blemishes?

          1 answer

          • Brand Expert

            A:

            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.

          • Brand Expert

            A:

            Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner does not address large pores. It is for uneven skin tone and texture.

        • Q:

          I like to use toners with a spray bottle to avoid cotton and all, can I put this item in a spray bottle and just spritz it on my face?
          Asked on 4/1/2016 by Beauty Buff

          1 answer

          • Brand Expert

            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.

            A:

            Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner can be used everyday if your skin allows. Depending on your skin's tolerance, you can decrease the usage to 2-3 times per week.
