      Comments about Mario Badescu Acne Facial Cleanser:

      Ive been using this for about four months along with the other acne starter kit products for combo skin. I love this cleanser. It's gentle and moisturizing. Plus, it has really cleared up my acne. My acne is almost not even visible at this point. The only con is that it feels almost like putting pure aloe gel on your skin at first, then it foams up just a little bit.

        I saw good reviews from this product and I was excited to try it out but after using it several times my skin started becoming dry. My face felt stiff due to this product drying my skin. I have also used this product for about a week and it's not doing much.

                Perfect for blemishes, although I believe all the products work for acne flare ups. Don't need to use alot and twice a day is more than enough. Follow up with a toner and lotion

                  Comments about Mario Badescu Acne Facial Cleanser:

                  I'm about a week in and I will say so far, so good, because I have no new breakouts. While it's going to take some more time to really put this to the test, I think I would be having issues if my skin was going to react badly to it. This cleanser doesn't dry out my face when paired with a good moisturizer (Clinique Dramatically Different). It feels very gentle on the skin and I like that it doesn't have a fragrance. No, it doesn't smell great, but that's because it isn't loaded with drying alcohol to make it smell like your perfume so that is a non-issue for me.

                      Acne Facial Cleanser is designed to remove makeup, however if you are using a long lasting HD foundation, you may want to use a makeup wash first. Leave on for 1-2 minutes to allow the BHA more time to dissolve away surface buildup, then rinse thoroughly with warm water.

                      Our Acne Facial Cleanser will help remove light makeup. If you use long-wear or HD makeup an additional makeup remover is suggested before daily cleansing.
