Cleanse and refresh dehydrated skin to reveal a brighter complexion. This mild cream cleanser is infused with orange peel extract, a natural source of alpha hydroxy acids, to gently exfoliate and help improve the look of skin tone and texture without leaving your complexion tight or dry.
Gently massage cleanser in cirular motions on wet skin. Leave on for 1-2 minutes to allow AHAs more time to dissolve away surface buildup, then rinse thoroughly with warm water. Use daily as needed. Follow with toner and moisturizer. If product gets into eyes, rinse well with water.

    Comments about Mario Badescu Orange Cleansing Soap:

    This is a great (non foaming) CREAM CLEANSER. Gentle & moisturizing. I pair it with the MB Seaweed Cleansing Lotion (toner) and the MB Hydro. vitamin C moisturizer. Can also use a sheet mask between toner and moisturizer. Leaves my skin soft, smooth, and balanced. Great for dry skin.!

          First time purchasing this product. I used to use the cleanser for "dry-sensitive" skin but it felt like my skin was super dry after using it. Purchased this one and so far, I really like it. It doesnt give me that dry/tight skin feel afterwards.

            Cruelty free, and it takes off all make up but doesn't pull out lashes or tug at you're skin. People have noticed a difference in my skin. I also use their toner and LOVE that.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Orange Cleansing Soap:

              I used the Acne Cleanser, though it did improve my appearance of pores, it did irritate my skin. Finally talking to a MB Skin Specialist, I was told for my dry sensitive skin, this will work best.

              It doesn't dry out my skin. Does not leave it with a tight feeling. It gently exfoliates my skin. I can see an improvement of texture and my pores. My redness has toned down a great deal. For me, this works.

              I use twice a day, gently massage it in, paying more attention to my enlarged pores (specifically my nose). I leave it on for 2 minutes (twice a day of course), and rinse with lukewarm water.

                  Comments about Mario Badescu Orange Cleansing Soap:

                  I really like this product. I don't think it is for everyone and I don't think that if you like a 'super clean/tight' feeling after cleansing that this product will make you happy. If you have used and do not mind oil based cleansers, this is quite similar.

                  I don't wear much makeup (except for eye makeup--for which I use an eye makeup remover). I use a very light tinted lotion and powder blush and lip gloss, and a spf 50 moisturizer every morning. I'm in my 30s and my skin is very healthy, so makeup is not needed and heavy makeup just causes more issues, such as clogged pores. This face wash removes all of the above without any issues.

                  I usually put this on and leave it on while I wash my hair or do other shower things. I think this allows the acids in it to work to exfoliate the skin. Then I massage my face and rinse (probably after 2-3 minutes). It leaves my skin feeling smooth and clean, but not stripped of the natural oils which are very important. I follow with my normal moisturizer.

                  If you are a teen or have oily/acne prone skin there are better products. If you are in your 30's or 40's (or even older) and just wanted a basic cleanser to provide some exfoliation and not strip your skin, this is perfect.

                    Not sure why people are the trying to use it as a make up remover, i don't think it's that type of cleanser, my skin is clearer and moisturized, it's a gentle cleanser , but you should take off your make up with other products, do not rely on this product.

                        The Orange Cleansing Soap will remove light makeup. If you use full coverage or long wear makeup an additional make up remover is suggested.
