Skin is so bright!

Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

I love this stuff! I use it once in the morning and it definitely took a few months to notice the difference but man! Now that I have been using it regularly I definitely notice that my skin is brighter and more even. I have really sensitive skin and it has not made me break out at all

    Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

    I'm reviewing this because I've noticed over the past month my skin has progressively become more smooth and glowing, and it has to be because of this product. I've worked out my routine to have clear skin, but I never thought I could have the healthy poreless glow and color that I have now - my skin looks much less dull and combination-y. I recommend! I use it at night before a night cream.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

      I feel like toner is one of those things where you use it and you're like yeah it's good but then when you stop using it your skin starts acting up and you don't know why so you use the toner hoping it will help and then all of a sudden your skin starts getting better you go back to it hoping it will do something and you realize how important it truly is and this was definitely an amazing toner that really made a difference in my skin

        I've been using the MB Glycolic Acid Toner for about 2 months and I love it! I started using it everyday, morning and night. Now I'm using it mostly at night, while using the MB Aloe Vera Toner in the AM to calm any redness I have. It has definitely improved my skin's texture. My skin is so smooth and soft now which makes my day/night creams go on smoothly and my makeup looks so much better. It has helped even my skin tone and makes my skin look brighter. A little goes a long way and it quickly absorbs into your skin without irritation. The regular sized bottle should last you at least 2 months! Definitely worth the cost. I highly recommend for anyone looking for an effective addition to their skincare routine.

        Best toner I've ever used

        By Meghan

        from Michigan

        Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

        I've been using this for about 6 months now l, twice a day. It has drastically cleared up my skin as well as reduced my discoloration and scars.

        You have to stick with it. The longer you use it, the better it works.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner:

        I have combination skin with lots of break outs and I was using The Ordinary's glycolic acid toner and I wanted to try another one to see how it stacked up. I will say, this is not nearly as drying as The Ordinary's, but it doesn't make my skin as noticeably brighter and to me it seems like it leaves a bit of a film on my skin, maybe I use too much. Otherwise it's perfectly fine for everyday use.

          I have dry skin and am looking for a product that can get rid of my acne scars. Any suggestions?

          • Brand Expert

            A:

            For dry skin we suggest our Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion as your toner to help reduce discoloration. Our Glycolic Foaming Cleanser can be used 1-2 times per week to exfoliate the skin and help further reduce discoloration.

            A:

            Yes, the Glycolic Acid Toner is oil free. This product is best suited for combination to dry skin types, it may be too hydrating for oily skin.

          My question is which of your products work best to hydrate skin and reduce blemishes because although my skin isn't exactly acne prone, when I get any small bit it's very stubborn and takes a long time to go away

        • Q:

          I LOOOOOOVE the cucumber spray and will be purchasing the toner right now. My question is about this product and basically all Mario products that have parabens. I'm nearing 40 and parabens are found in the majority of breast cancers. The cucumber spray has changed my life. It sets makeup, keeps oils at bay and refreshes my skin. I have hyperpigmentation and I'd like to start incorporating more Mario products into my regimen as I phase out of Philosophy but I'm apprehensive due to the amount of products that contain parabens. Is there anything coming down the pike that's paraben-free with the products such as this that contain parabens?

          • Brand Expert

            A:

            If you are looking for a brightening toner that is paraben free, our Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion can be used.
            We are aware of inquiries for a paraben-free line and as we continue in the formulation of new products, we have taken this into consideration and hope to formulate items with different preservatives.
