      Cleared My Stubborn Acne

        Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

        I have had acne for years, and have known that glycolic acid is used for treating acne and is great for speeding up the growth of new skin cells and removing the dead ones. Although the bottle said not to use it on acne prone skin, I disregarded that and I'm happy I did! This not only improved the texture of my skin (no more dry patches!) but also prevented me from getting any new pimples. I have also noticed that my hyper-pigmentation has lessened. This is great :)
