Most Helpful Positive Review OMG! IN LOVE... MIRACLE WORKER
I originally went in for another product and ended up leaving with this. I have EXTREMELY dry and sensitive skin, lately I've been under an immense amount of stress so have been breaking out worse then I ever have in my life! My esthetician told me that glycolic acid could potentially help with scaring and build up of dry dead skin cells.
I use This every third night followed by the gycolic acid toner, the rest of the time I have been using Mario Badescu Seaweed cleanser and toner! I use a dry skin formulated moisturizer. I have also been taking a supplement l-lysine to help prevent breakouts from starting.
Between the two they have completely reduced all redness and inflammation, my break out is slowly subsiding and the scarring is fading, all the awful scabs have slowly been shedding leaving healthier looking skin under... I have been using this regimen for 6 days!!! my skin feels smooth and their is a drastic reduction in redness everyday. It feel healthy and happy <3 <3
I am a believer THANK YOU MARIO BADESCU <3
Most Helpful Critical Review Broke Me Out with Horrible Cystic Acne
After reading hundreds of great reviews, I really wanted to love this product. I have oily/acne prone skin and I had finally managed to control my acne when I decided to try this product to lighten up my scars. It was a horrible mistake. Instead, I broke out with painful cystic acne all over my checks and jaw line. At first I stuck to it because I thought I was "purging," but after about 5 weeks of use, it wasn't getting any better and I was still breaking out. I won't give up on MB completely, I have used their seaweed cleanser with no issues, but the glycolic face cleanser was just not for me. I have stopped using it and praying my skin recovers soon!!

Christie from Jacksonville FL
I wrote a similar review for the glycolic toner as I use these hand in hand. I have oily skin and am prone to breakouts from makeup, etc but this helps keep it at bay and I've noticed a noticeable difference in skin balance and tone. I will use this again and again.
Great Chemical Exfoliant-don't use every day!!
Lo from Newport Beach, CA
This is so great for keeping your skin super smooth and helping with texture. Replace with your face wash 1 to 2 times a week. I didn't read the instructions and started using it everyday at first, my skin was insanely smooth at first but then learned the hard way you will get severe irritation/extreme dryness so do NOT do that.
Great cleanser for custom acne
Ice from CA
This cleanser really helps with my cystic acne and gets under the skin and used with lightening products really helps my face
Alyssa from Kentucky
Super gentle cleanser that exfoliates my face without being too harsh
Had a horrible reaction
Lauren from NJ
I got this product in a gift set I bought and I was really excited to use this because I love Mario Badescu. After using this according to the directions my face appeared a little red but I didn't think anything of it. The next morning I had a full-blown rash on my face and I had to keep washing it with my old cleanser over and over until it went away and it still wasn't completely gone. This is the first MB product I've had issues with, but I would NOT recommend.
My skin look great
Michelle from Las vegas
I have problematic skin with reoccurring acne in the same few spots all the time. After just three uses my skin if clearer than it has been in years. Also it made my skin extremely soft cleared away my dry skin, seems to have shrunk my pores and even seems to be softening some of my fine lines . I really love this brand my skin hasn't looked this good since my 20's.
Skin is tight and oily at the same time.
Olgi from San Diego ca
I loved the acne kit And wanted to try something anti aging but this cleanser made my skin tight and oily at the same time.
I will continue to purchase this product. Love it!
Liz from Humble, TX
I use this product three times a week and use the super collagen mask twice a week. I have seen a big difference in my face. My forehead wrinkles have become less noticeable and fewer.
Bree from Tacoma
This brand isn't great
GREAT for fungal acne
claudiajoy from USA
I think this has made the world of a difference in my complexion
Des from California
I have combo skin and it felt amazing after just one use. It didn't leave me oily but also didn't make my skin feel like it was being pulled like some cleansers.
JP from California
I only use it 2-3 times a week and I use a gentle cleanser right after so there isn't irritation. its pretty good and It works for my skin but that's just me personally
DO NOT BUY
Emmy from Waukesha Wisconsin
NEGATIVE INGREDIENTS FOR YOUR SKIN. WILL NOT HELP ACNE.
Don't believe me? Download skin bliss app and look at ingredient list. Full of fillers and bad things.
Great product, love it, do not love some of the ingredients
Clementine from Boston, MA
I have been using this for a year and love the way my skin feels after. I was reading all the ingredients, don't know why i never looked before. Just disappointed to see it had parabens and SLS in it. Hoping eventually they might become a cleaner line.
Leaves your skin feeling clean and feeling soft
Rena from Iowa
Every time I use it I breakout days later but I love how my skin feels after using it
great for hyperpigmentation
les from compton
I have always been darker around the neck and elbows because hyperpigmentation, but ive been applying some as body wash on my elbows and neck and knees and leaving it on for about 5 minutes in the shower and its actually working. Its evening out my skin tone from little scars and lightening up my problem areas a bit. worth a try.
Good so far
Vee from California
It has a pleasant citrus scent. I use a dime size amount or a little more. Foams up quick. It lighten/brighten up my skin on first use. I did have some dryness around my nose. I believe Glycolic makes your skin sensitive to the sun so wear sunscreen and a hat if possible. My face turned red when I went to get the mail.
my favorite cleanser
mom628 from OH
Not a fan of the ingredients
Cocodee from New York
I only used the product once before I realized it contained SLS and fragrances that could strip the skin and be irritating. So if you are ingredient conscious or want a "clean" product this is not it.
Laura from Texas
I use it once everyday. It helped with little bumps and acne scars. Just be careful if you have open acne.
not a fan
SLB from Charlotte, NC
Really wasn't a fan. I could not use enough water to avoid eye irritation. Decided to take this out of the line up and replaced it with a paraben free cleanser.
I don't often review products, but I will for this one!
Kristen from Seattle, WA
I used this for the first time when I bought the Anti-Aging Regimen Kit and I liked it but I wanted to try other cleansing products for my skin. After getting meh results, I decided to go back to this and try it again. Well, I can tell you that my face is SO HAPPY! I accidentally purchased 2 and I'm so glad I did. I put one in the shower to use every morning and one under my sink to use at night. My face is softer and smoother and my rosacea red cheeks are much calmer. I highly recommend this for anyone who needs help with wrinkles and redness!
