      Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

      Could never use toners when younger, as they caused blemishes from too dry skin. This one is great at my age (early 60's) for clean feeling, refreshing, removes all traces of cleansers & makeup, and wakes up your skin. Keeps wrinkles from getting worse with makeup residue left on skin. I see a big difference after using 3+ months with other MB products.

      So Amazing

      By Kelsey

      from Memphis

      Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

      I usually don't write reviews but this product is everything. I have seen a tremendous change in my skin. My recent breakout is vastly disappearing, my darks spots are slowly fading, and my skin has a overall healthy glow. I've been using this for almost two weeks now and I see a big difference. I wish I could show a before and after photo, even my parents have complimenting my skin. If your thinking about it just get it, you won't be disappointed.

          I love this stuff! I've been using it for about 6 weeks. I use this every other night (on the nights I don't exfoliate) and I think it has evened out my complexion and made my pores less visible.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

              I am really stumped...I thought this was a no brainer based on the reviews. After wiping this on my face with a cotton ball, my face felt sticky for a good hour or two afterwards. And oily/greasy. Yuck. Will be returning it promptly today.

                        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.

                        A:

                        The Glycolic Acid Toner is ideal for combination or dry skin, while the Aloe Vera Toner is ideal for dry, sensitive skin. If your main concern is to soften the visible signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles, choose Glycolic. If your main concern is soothing the skin, choose Aloe Vera.

                        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!

                        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.
