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

    I love this cleanser. I'm someone with very dry, sensitive skin and I had been experiencing some rough skin months over the winter. Since using this my skin has cleared right up. I use it usually just once a day at night. The directions say to use on a dry face and wipe off with a damp towel, but I wet my face beforehand and then wash it off. Wake up with a face soft as a baby's bottom!

    Pleasantly surprised

    By Freya

    from The South

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

    Wasn't sure why I ordered this because I felt skeptical about washing my face without really rinsing it, but it was on sale so I tried it. I applied it all over my face, including gently rubbing my eyes to take my eyeliner off and it didn't burn at all. With a few wipes of a paper towel moistened with warm water my face felt bright and clean. I have also found that when I mess up my winged eyeliner just a dab of this on my fingertip cleans it right up without irritating the corner of my eye.

      This is my favorite cleanser. I use it on dry of wet skin and wipe off with a wet hand towel. I then re-apply and rise off with water which helps keep my dry skin moisturized.

      Takes off makeup well

      By BeautyJunkie920

      from Chicago

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

      I purchased this to remove my makeup, especially on heavy makeup days. It does a really good job of removing all makeup, but I personally don't like the milk feel. I always double cleanse with the enzyme gel or a toner. Otherwise, does exactly what it is supposed to do - take my makeup off.

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

          This product was recommended to me in-store since that location does not sell what I usually use. I was told that it removes makeup and is great for sensitive skin. This product disappoints in both areas. It took 2 applications to remove my makeup (I don't even wear waterproof). When I finally did get it off, my skin had a nasty feeling residue that didn't even come off with toner. Worst of all, after only 3 uses my eczema was back full force and my face was red in places that haven't been red before. It is definitely going back!

          This cleanser saved my skin

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

          I suffer from acne and this stuff has really saved me especially with those annoying tiny hard bumps I get on my chin. I've always been double cleansing with a rinse off oil but those weren't helping. Now I only double cleanse with this. I hope this never gets discontinued or I will be devastated!

          I personally did not like this product. It made my feel and look super greasy, and if you get it anywhere near your eyes, it stings like crazy so I stopped using it. I also couldn't stand the smell. Yuck!

            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!

                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 would like to know if I should use this product or the orange cleansing soap for my dry skin because I also have not completely faded acne scar marks on my skin and I don't want to dry out my skin at the same time.

                    A:

                    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.

                • Q:

                  Okay so I'm just a little bit confused with this product. I don't wear makeup everyday so is this cleanser okay to use on a bare face to just cleanse the skin? Or is it mainly to remove makeup?
