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:

    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.

        It's pretty good for the price. But it does leave a bit of a greasy feeling on your face like a residue still left there. Until use the toner and then it's all gone. Not sure if I like by again

              Comments about Mario Badescu Orange Cleansing Soap:

              This is the worst product ever. It does not do the most basic task as a cleanser, clean! It sits on top of your face, is difficult to move around and difficult to wash off. I had to use something else to wash off both the product and my face. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PRODUCT, it is a travesty.

              I usually love Mario Badescu, but this product does nothing to remove make-up. I use eyeshadow in place of eyeliner, and this didn't even remove that! I even tried applying it to my dry skin, and it still didn't work. I had to return it.

                  I am 39 years old and I live where I have long winters and it sets my skin out and makes it tight and dry. I want to know which product I can use to help from Mario Badescu. I want a moisturizer but don't know if I need one for day a d one for night.
                  I also want something for underneath my eyes. And a good cleanser for my type if skin. I don't have oily skin. But I am at am age where I would like to prevent aging like fine lines and wrinkles.

                  If possible some one responded to me before with this question but I can't find the email with the response advising me which products to get.

                  Thank you

                    A:

                    Orange Peel Extract, a natural source of mild alpha hydroxy acids found in our Orange Cleansing Soap, gently exfoliates to help improve the look of skin tone and texture without leaving your complexion tight or dry. If you are looking to reduce discoloration from acne scars, we suggest our Glycolic Foaming Cleanser 1-3 times per week as your exfoliant. http://www.ulta.com/glycolic-foaming-cleanser?productId=xlsImpprod6200753
