Exfoliate up to three times a week with Mario Badescu's foaming glycolic acid-based cleanser designed to dissolve dulling dead skin cells, to help refine pores and retexturize uneven skin. Fine lines, wrinkes, old acne marks, and age spots are diminished with regular use-encouraging a smoother, more youtful-looking complexion.

Use as a supplemental cleanser.
Replace your regular cleanser 1-2 times per week for Dry to Combination Skin, and 2-3 times per week for Combination and Oily skin. Massage onto wet skin using upward, circular motions, then rinse thoroughly with warm water. If product gets into eyes, rinse well with water.

Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser:

I use it with my Clarisonic. Every time I use this face wash it burns my eyes. It does leave my skin feeling fresh and tight.

    I use this product with my Mia 2 Clarisonic brush and it does wonders. After two weeks I notice the old acne pigmentation on my skin disappearing. Suprisendly, it does not dry out my skin because I use this regularly even though its labeled to use 2-3 times a week. Will definitely continue to purchase this product.

    Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser:

    ok I got this for Christmas and was a little skeptical about using this product bc of the fact it had Glycolic acid in it (I've had bad experiences with a product with Glycolic acid before) but yesterday I decided to try it and all I have to say is W O W not only did it improve the texture of my skin but it also evened out the tone of it. I plan on only using this once a week bc I'm afraid if I overuse it my skin will begin to breakout.

    Best cleanser EVER!!!!!

    By Aj

    from Katy, TX

    Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser:

    I bought the trial size thinking I'll see how this is and I was really surprised! This cleans my pores really good! I have combo/acne prone skin. I have never seen my pores so clean! I use this maybe every other day and I have seen significant improvements with my skin. My skin is brighter and when I do get a pimple it does NOT stay long!! This does not dry your skin out or make your skin feel "squeaky "clean (I hate that feeling) I will be buying the large size! Best cleanser I have ever used!!!

      Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser:

      I use this every 3 or 4 days and for the price it does a great job at removing that top layer of buildup on my face. I don't recommend using it more than twice a week as I could see it drying the skin out if used more.

      If you're looking for a deep clean, this face wash will give you exactly that! I can only use about once a week, otherwise my face would be dryer than the sahara- no matter how much moisturizer applied after.

                A:

                We recommend our Glycolic Foaming Cleanser 1-3 times per week in place of your daily cleanser to help exfoliate the skin, reduce congestion/breakouts and help minimize discoloration from acne scars. The other products in the Brightening Regimen Kit and Glycolic Acid Toner are not suitable for teens. The Glycolic Foaming Cleanser would be our best option within our line.

              I am a guy, and was given this as a gift from a friend. Can this be used if you have facial hair. I have a short beard, and don't want to damage the hair follicles or change the color due to a potential reaction from the ingredients. Thanks.

            • Q:

              Hi! I've been looking for a more gentle way to exfoliate my skin rather than using scrubs. So many articles say that using a toner with glycolic acid is a great choice for sensitive, blemish prone skin, but reading your responses on the Glycolic Acid Toner page made me re-think that. My skin is pretty well balanced - not oily and not dry, but I would describe it as sensitive. The only place I really get pimples is on my chin - they tend to be red spots that end up in a white head. I have some reddish spots below the skin too that don't seem to go away, but they're not extremely noticeable. I'm wondering what product of yours you recommend for gentle Glycolic Acid exfoliation for my skin. Thank you!

                A:

                Products in our line do not target milia. We suggest consulting with your dermatologist for proper diagnosis, treatment and removal of your milia to not damage the skin.

            • Q:

              I have reddish/pinkish acne marks on my cheeks and get almost-colorless little bumpy things on my face (usually on forehead I think I've heard that it's likely due to makeup). Would this cleanser make the pinkish marks and the bumps disappear with several months of using? (I wanna make sure my acne marks are not brown or "dark spots". They have been red or pink for months.)

                A:

                Our Glycolic Foaming Cleanser can be used 2-3 times per week to exfoliate and brighten the skin. The Glycolic Foaming Cleanser harnesses the power of glycolic acid to retexturize and rejuvenate uneven skin. Unfortunately, it will not fill in the indents. Some advanced cases of acne scarring do require a trip to the dermatologist.

            • Q:

              Is it okay if I use a cleanser with 2% salicylic acid with this cleanser? I am thinking of using the salicylic acid one almost every day and night, except for those 2 or 3 nights a week when I am using this cleanser instead. Should I get other acne cleanser without salicylic acid or is it still okay to use salicylic acid? (my moisturizer doesn't have any acid)
