    I cannot rave enough about this skin care line. My photos should speak for themselves. Granted they are two years apart, but I have been a loyal Mario user because I almost immediately saw results. For those suffering from adult acne, don't give up hope, get Mario!

        Comments about Mario Badescu Cleansing Milk With Carnation & Rice Oil:

        For about the last 9 years of my life I have been in a battle between my love for make-up and acne. About 3 years ago my face was at it's worse. My chin covered in cystic pimples and black heads everywhere. I started with the Mario line to treat my acne and I noticed a different almost immediately. But the Acne wash wasn't completely ending my acne.
        I wear make up everyday and some times at night after washing and toning I would still feel like I had make up on. But this product is amazing!! I use this product with my hands and wipe it off with a warm washcloth. The washcloth is covered my day's makeup! I really feel like I washed my face with one.

            I bought this to see if it would replace my Lush Ultrabland since it's 2x the volume and half the price. It did nothing for me. My makeup was still on my face even after taking it off with a makeup wipe first. It stung and dried my skin out.

                  i can't even begin to express my love for this face wash. i struggle with cystic acne and rosacea in my skin. i've only been using this cleanser for about 5 days and i can't begin to describe how much of a difference it has made. 80% of my acne spots are gone and the other 20% has drastically faded and shrunk in size. my skin looks smoother, less red, and is glowing! i have combination/oily skin, but this cleanser does not over moisturize, and i've actually noticed less shine after wearing makeup all day. it is gentle and feels amazing. i can't believe it is so cheap. PEOPLE LISTEN YOU NEED THIS IN YOUR LIFE, I CANT RECOMMEND IT ENOUGH. PLEASE, BE GOOD TO YOUR SKIN!

                    This cleanser was a VERY nice switch up from my oil cleanser. I am a dedicated two-step facial cleansing follower and use this for my first face wash. It removes make up very nicely and leaves my skin moisturized. I soak a washcloth in warm water before wiping off the cleanser and it feels like a day at the spa! I DO NOT recommend attempting to simply rinse off this cleanser with nothing but water though. It turns into a greasy feeling mess on your face that won't come off (try to imagine rubbing butter off your face with water....). Other than that one mistake I absolutely love this cleanser! I will be buying again!

                    I have combo to normal skin. I use this along with the Botanic Gel Cleanser. I love it because it's gentle, moisturizing, and takes off the rest of the impurities that the Botanic Gel didn't get. It's also gentle enough to take off mascara and eye make up.

                        I've been a fan of Mario's rose water for quite awhile now, so I figured that I would try more of his products. (Also because I am building a better skin-care routine for myself). There have been multiple improvements to my skin since using this; first of all, it removes makeup well. I never have to go back with wipes or oils because it does the job on its own. Second of all, my skin has become softer and brighter. NOTE: I do not have dry skin, even though this product says it is for dry skin. It is sensitive, however.
                        Third, it has helped remove my stubborn blackheads on my nose. And I mean STUBBORN. I've tried so many different black head removers and DIY's, and this CLEANSER was what worked. Fourth, it removed old dark marks/scarring. When my lady-time comes around, I always have some kind of breakout on my chin. I had one zit/red bump that arose and stayed on my chin for who-knows how long. Small, but annoying. And in the same area, I had about 4 dark marks/scars from old breakouts that were a bit noticeable. THIS CLEANSER- WITHIN THE FIRST FEW DAYS OF USE- MADE ALL OF THEM DISAPPEAR. No exaggeration. My chin is as clear as it has ever been. This cleanser is a miracle worker on my skin. And an added bonus, it is not messy to use.

                            Our Orange Cleansing Soap is a great daily cleanser for combination to dry skin types that have dullness or discoloration. Our Cleansing Milk with Carnation & Rice Oil is best suited for dry, mature skin. Neither cleanser will over-dry the skin. If you are concerned with the occasional breakout and dullness, I would suggest the Orange Cleansing Soap as your daily cleanser.
