Wash away makeup and surface debris, leaving skin clean and refreshed with Mario Badescu's best selling non-foaming gel cleanser. Perfect for all skin types, the cleanser features fruit enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids (found naturally in papya and grapefruit extracts) to gently exfoliate the buidlup of dead skin cells that can block pores and cause blemishes. Skin is left healthy and rejuvenated.
Twice daily, gently massage cleanser in circular motions on wet skin. Leave on for 1-2 minutes to allow AHAs more time to dissolve away surface buildup, then rinse thoroughly with warm water. Follow with toner or astringent. If product gets into eyes, rinse well with water.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel:

      I am not a fan of this product. It smells highly of alcohol, and I feel like it does nothing for my skin. I usually love everything from this brand, but this product did not work for me at all. The smell was the biggest down fall, but it also left me feeling dry and my skin did not feel clean or refreshed. On the plus side, my husband loves this product regardless of the smell, which he notices as well. He has oily skin, especially in his t-zone.

        Wow

        By skincare123456

        from Scottsdale

        Comments about Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel:

        I have dry skin and mild patchy eczema on my cheeks. I also have some acne. I have tried many different cleaners but nothing has cleaned my skin and kept it hydrated as well as this. It smells great and feels great. The slight downside is that you need quite a bit of product but the bottle seems like it lasts forever. The price is completely worth it. It's not the best at removing makeup but that's not what it's for. Highly recommend

        I used this for a while. It worked but I wanted to switch it up. After a while using another cleanser I started to have mild breakouts. I then decided that I try this again and I am so glad I did. It smoothed my skin and revitalized it. TOTALLY recommend!

                  A:

                  Our Enzyme Cleansing Gel is suitable for all skin types, to help reduce excess oil and impurities while brightening the skin. This is a great daily cleanser for those with occasional acne. Our Acne Facial Cleanser is best suited for combination to oily skin types that experiences daily or weekly breakouts. This utilizes salicylic acid to help reduce congestion and breakouts.

                  A:

                  Our Enzyme Cleansing Gel is a great option for combination skin for daily cleansing. our refreshing gel features fruit enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids (found naturally in Papaya and Grapefruit Extracts) to dissolve away makeup, oil, and impurities. Skin is left healthy and rejuvenated.
                  We do suggest using the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser twice per week in place of your daily cleanser to help further reduce discoloration and exfoliate the skin.
                  Results vary, it may take a few weeks to notice results.
