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. A soothing blend of chamomile, marshmellow, sage, St. John's wort, and yarrow extracts provide additional rejuvenating benefits that help re-balance and leave skin radiant. 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 purchased this cleanser at the suggestion of an Ulta employee. I simply love it. It replaced my former cleanser made by Derm-e who had discontinued my previous favorite cleanser. LOL. I use this cleanser every night followed by Strivectin Cream and have found my skin texture to be improved.

    Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser:

    I have been using this glycolic wash for years. It has served me wonderfully through my usual oily skin, as well as bouts with dry skin in the winter. It leaves my skin squeaky clean, yet soft (not tight) and is effective on textured areas that need a little boost to exfoliate. I haven't had any skin problems while using this. Follow-up with the Glycolic Toner only amplifies the effectiveness of the wash. Be sure to wear your favorite sunblock, as the glycolic acid makes you more prone to sunburn. You will love it!

      Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser:

      This is amazing !!!!! Love it so much. I have suffered from a really bad dark spot on my forehead and I thought it would never go away, until I was tired of it so I did my research and I came to this! I saw all the good reviews about it and decided to try it out, the first day I tried it out, it did make my skin dry, but that's why we have moisturizer, but then later on it did wonders to my skin, and I highly recommend it !! I also have very sensitive skin and it worked perfectly for me. That dark spot on my forehead slowly began to go away. So go try it out !!

      Comments about Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser:

      This is a good product. It smells nice, foams up well, and leaves skin feeling really clean. I would compare it to Nip and Fab gylocolic wash. But it is stronger and leaves your skin feeling dryer. This is a great product for oily skin and acne prone skin. But it does sting my eyes when I wash my face.

        I have a more normal and sensitive skin type. I use this cleanser 1-2 times per week as a no abrasive exfoliant. It immediately makes your skin so clean and smooth. I am starting to see a little help with my breakouts as well. Just make sure your use moisturizer and sunscreen after, as you always should :)

                Read so many good reviews on this product and decided to give it a try. I have very sensitive skin and it didn't irritate it at all! I've only used this once but I'm very impressed. My skin was soooo soft afterwards and felt very fresh and clean. I can't wait to use this more often!
