I use this before putting make-up on, but it just doesn't seem to do as well as the Formula 10.06, but you were out of that like you usually are.

            I am using this with the enzyme cleansing gel, and I was going to give it 30 days to see what effects may happen - but it's already working great a week into it. What the enzyme gel doesn't get out of my pores, this toner does. I have been using acne products for years because I have hormonal breakouts still well into my 20s. BUT with this toner and cleanser, I have noticed my skin is becoming healthier. LOVE IT!

                Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

                I bought this product in hopes of reducing acne scars/ dullness, and so far I'm pleased with the results. I've been using it for about 7 weeks (about half the bottle is left) and the acne scars are so much better that I'm not embarrassed to go without covering them with makeup. It is a bit sticky / greasy feeling for a few minutes after applying but after it dried, my skin felt smooth and clean. I have fairly sensitive skin and it didn't irritate me, but I could see where it could be drying for other people. I would definitely follow up with a moisturizer.

                    A:

                    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.

                    A:

                    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.

My travel one is blue and labeled for skin type CDS. Is there a difference? Is the one on the website for sensitive skin?

                    A:

                    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!

                    A:

                    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.
