Formulated to address dry skin that is prone to redness and congestion. This soothing blend of aloe vera, bee pollen, and isodecyl salicylate - a mild beta hydroxy acid also known as keratoplast, helps refresh sensitive skin. Pore-clogging dirt, oil, and dead skin cells are gently dissolved from the surface without being harsh or drying-leaving dull, delicate skin rejuvenated. Alcohol free.
Twice daily after cleansing, apply to face with a cotton ball or pad, wiping in an outward direction. Avoid contact with eyes. If product gets into eyes, rinse well with water. Follow with moisturizer or night cream.

    Comments about Mario Badescu Keratoplast Cleansing Lotion:

    I really do enjoy using this product. I have combination skin/sensitive skin. It is gentle and balancing. It also does not strip my skin of any moisture and improves overall redness. I feel it has a mild fragrance, nothing that is strong or lingering. It performs as advertised and I am happy to use this product.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Keratoplast Cleansing Lotion:

      Wasn't really sure about this at first, but like it the more I use it. Leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh. It doesn't have alcohol or witch hazel which over dry my skin. It takes a minute to dry down, then I apply a serum and moisturizer.

      Love it...but what's up with the color change...

      By Hailey

      from Michigan

      Comments about Mario Badescu Keratoplast Cleansing Lotion:

      I agree with the post below from Maggie when it comes to the product changing color. This used to be a very pale, almost clear, toner. Regardless, I just finished the bottle and though I have other Mario products lined up to try, I may eventually come back to this toner. I truly do love it and it worked wonders on my skin. I used this as well as the Keratoplast Cream Soap.

          Comments about Mario Badescu Keratoplast Cleansing Lotion:

          This was my favorite toner. I have really sensitive, super combination skin and I couldn't use any kind of toner without it burning and making my face super red. I bought this product a while ago and absolutely loved it. I felt like it cleaned my skin without causing any irritation whatsoever. I just reordered it and it's a totally different product! The ingredient list online has changed and it now has alcohol which is not good for my dry/sensitive skin. The product also went from a natural looking, slightly tinted green color to a bright fluorescent green color because they must have pumped this full of dyes now. I thought I'd found the toner for me but I will have to continue searching after this new one gets returned. I'm so disappointed in the change.

              I have extremely sensitive skin and eyes. My skin gets really hot and bright red and my eyes burn with a lot of prdoucts. It's winter so my whole face is very dry. I have been using this product (and the keratoplast cream soap and kera moisturizer) for 2 weeks and i love them all! My skin and eyes are not irritated and my face feels smooth and hydrated not stripped of moisturizer...I dont have to immediately rush to apply moisturizer like i use to!

              does great!

              from USA

              Comments about Mario Badescu Keratoplast Cleansing Lotion:

              This is a pretty good toner. it definitely reduces the redness in my skin and makes my pores appear a little smaller. I have only been using it for a short time but I works immediately. It takes off so much makeup that my makeup wipes don't remove. I don't mind the smell of it, it's not really noticable to me. The main reason that I wanted to leave a review is to warn of the eye irritation. I really enjoy the product but it irritates my eyes so much! I'm going bro assume it's the pollen in it, but I didn't even know that pollen was in the ingredients until I looked it up. So while it's nice, be sure to avoid the eye area!

              Tried this product after reading the product description and realizing it was for me. I was so right! Other toners strip the natural oil in my face which causes me to have breakouts. I've been using this for o her a month and have had no problems! I have less redness and discoloration as well. Love love love!

              • Q:

                I have oily/acne prone skin, but also extremely sensitive skin. I often have issues with products designed for oily skin because they are too harsh for me to use and make my problems worse. Would this toner would be recommended despite the fact that it is marketed for dry skin? If not, what toner would be recommended?

                "How to use" indicates to follow with moisturizer after cleansing lotion. Does it mean that a toner is not necessary when using this product?

                If you are allergic to bees, like bee stings, could you still use this product? I notice it contains bee pollen. I have no problem with beeswax or honey.
