Minimize fine lines and discoloration. The exfoliating powers of citrus extracts and the soothing nature of aloe and seaweed extracts make this toner perfect for dull, dry and sensitive complexions. Citrus naturally breaks down pore congestion and dead skin cells for a healthy, refreshed glow. Also a solution for those suffering with pigmentation and discoloration of the skin. Alcohol free.
Twice daily after cleansing, pat skin dry and apply lotion-dampened cotton to skin, wiping in an outward direction until cotton comes up clean. Avoid eye area. Follow with moisturizer or night cream

    It's really good! After washing my face twice a day , I use this twice a day . It removes makeup that I've missed while washing my face . It helped with my acne too ! Also , I have dry combo skin that's sensitive so this helped calmed it down , I'm on my second bottle , it's a must in my skin care routine.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion:

      I have very oily, acne-prone, textured skin, but with the winter season in full effect my skin gets really dehydrated also. It's flakey/scaley but still somehow oily?? For the past 2 or 3 years I've been using Clinique's Acne Solution Clarifying Lotion/Toner and I thought I would try something new. This has balanced my skin, exfoliated, and almost eliminated my texture in just 3 weeks!!!! I'm not experiencing as many breakouts as before, my skin is less oily, and my pores appear smaller. This product as exceeded my skin care expectations and nearly cured all of my skin complaints.

          I use this after washing my face. This product removes any leftover makeup and is gentle enough to use on eyes. It's moisturizing yet slowly lightens dark spots. I am 35 and have undereye wrinkles and my skin is very sensitive...i won't use anything else!

              Comments about Mario Badescu Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion:

              After reading the reviews and seeing that this toner was recomended for sensitive skin and hyperpigmentation I bought it to try out. The first night it was great. It smells good and my face felt really clean after using it. On the third day that I used it within about an hour my face was bright red and hot. I have hyper sensitive skin and rosacea so I am careful to only try one new thing at a time. I don't think this is a bad toner it is just not a good match for sensitive skin. I exhanged it for the aloe vera toner and that has been great.

                Comments about Mario Badescu Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion:

                Absolutely the best addition I've made to my skincare regimen. I have horrid skin. Extremely dry on my cheeks, extremely oily in my t-zone, EXTREMELY sensitive. Also acne-prone. It's a nightmare. Or should I say, WAS a nightmare. I did a lot of research about skincare products for skin as extreme as mine and this one continuously popped up. I decided to give it a try. I have bad acne scars on my forehead and chin from high school, and I swear this practically erased them. My cheeks were always a little red, irritated, and bumpy, along with being uncomfortablly dry, and again this stuff practically erased all of those issues with a swipe. I use it every night after I wash my face and before I moisturize. My skin is literally glowing now and almost all discoloration is gone. It's the smoothest it's ever been and I can actually go without one bit of makeup and not feel like everyone is looking at my skin. Mario Badescu, if you ever discontinue this please give me a warning so I can stock up for the rest of my life.

                      We recommend using only one toner, however you can alternate between two. You can use the Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion as your toner at night and a different toner in the morning.

                      The Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion is a great option for dry to combination skin with discoloration. For dry, acne prone skin, our Seaweed Cleansing Lotion would be a great option to help reduce breakouts without over-drying.
