    Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

    I am a huge fan of MB products. I am always happy to try something new, but have been steadily returning back to this line for about 2 years. The product is affordable and works. I think that my skin looks fresher and I have not seen any signs of aging at all. Definitely recommend this product and really almost everything I have tried from MB.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

        I have had melasma for about 8 years now and have been able to get rid of most of it except for around my jawline. I have been using this for one week and the dark areas around my jaw have lightened ALOT. I was hoping this would be the case after reading the reviews and I am thrilled. I have tried just about every cream out there for hyper pigmentation including prescription creams from the dermatologist and nothing worked like this. I am so glad I tried it and will use this for the rest of my life!

                      A:

                      The color shift which you are describing is common with the Glycolic Acid Toner and is dependent on the type and amount of lighting the product has experienced. The more florescent lighting to which the product was exposed to, the lighter the color may be, but this has not affected the efficacy of the product. You may continue to use and enjoy the product.

                      A:

                      Our Glycolic Acid Toner is recommended for use with combination or dry skin types. The actual frequency of use would be determined by your skin's tolerance to glycolic acid. I would start with 2 times a week and increase usage as your skin allows. You can use this toner in combination with the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser. You should also start using the cleanser 1-2 times a week and increase usage accordingly. http://www.ulta.com/glycolic-foaming-cleanser?productId=xlsImpprod6200753#

                      We wouldn't recommend using 2 toners. That may prove to be too harsh for your skin. You can either use one in the morning and the other at night or you can incorporate our gently exfoliating Glycolic Foaming Cleanser into your skin care routine 2-3 times a week. http://www.ulta.com/glycolic-foaming-cleanser?productId=xlsImpprod6200753

                      Regular use of glycolic acid based products will work to gently exfoliate away that pore clogging debris. You may also want to consider using our Glycolic Foaming Cleanser (Item #: 2209926) 2-3 times a week. We also offer our Drying Cream (Item #: 2209806) to target those small under the surface bumps.

                      A:

                      Our Glycolic Acid Toner can be used daily after cleansing to offer gentle exfoliation that will reduce congestion, help to minimize fine lines, and work to reduce discolorations over time. Our Whitening Mask (Item #: 2209901) should be used 2-3 times a week and is super effective at brightening your overall skin tone and to minimize skin discolorations with regular use.
