Most Helpful Positive Review Best Facial Cleanser Ever!
Ever switching to this cleanser 3 years ago, my skin has never been in better shape. I was breaking out really bad in my early 30's and literally bought hundreds of dollars worth of cleansers, acne medication, dermatologist appointments. Then I went on Mario's website and I filled out a questionnaire about my skin and this was the cleanser that was recommend (also the Aloe Moisturizer). They sent me free samples in the mail of different products and for the past 3 years I've used nothing but this cleanser, the Aloe moisturizer and the buffering lotion for the occasional pimple. My acne has yet to return. And the buffering lotion takes care of the occasional pimple I get once a month. Try going on their website, I promise you won't be disappointed with this brand!
Most Helpful Critical Review Morning Cleanser
Good for use in the morning in the shower. As others have mentioned, it's messy to use, as there is no pump, just the bottle opening. Often more came out than I wanted to use. After using about half of the bottle, it did develop an almost fishy odor. I wasn't a big fan of the original scent when I first opened it, which was a floral, mature woman kind of smell. It was not especially moisturizing but did not bother my sensitive skin either.

I love this product. I have very oily skin and I feel like this product really helps with that.

soph from Chicago, Illinois
I use this product every night (I don't use cleanser on my face in the mornings so I don't strip the natural oils from my face) and I absolutely love it. I've been struggling with acne and so I bought this cleanser along with the rosewater witchhazel toner and A.H.A ceramide moisturizer and within days my skin is absolutely glowing and my acne is disappearing

I can't say anything bad it does a great job cleaning my face!
Great For The Price
May from Bakersfield
Bought this since I used to have a seaweed face wash when I would go to a dermatologist. It's gentle but very cleansing. I love it. The bottle is huge for the price. The only downfall is that I wish it has a pump or better delivery than a twist off cap.
CCCthree from Chapel Hill, NC
I like the texture and feel of the cleanser; however, my face feels oily after using. Kind of like there is residue on it, which I don't like. I will keep using until the bottle is empty, but won't repurchase.
The BEST face cleanser!!!
NavyGirly619 from California
This is my favorite facial cleansing soap! What I especially love is that it can be used daily, because it is gentle and does not over dry the skin. I use it in the shower in the mornings. I love how the seaweed is a little bit course so that it really exfoliates well. I am going to keep using this!
BOMB, BOMB, BOMB!

I've been using Mario Badescu since I was in 8th grade... Im now 23. His products are the only products that won't literally burn the skin off my face and are so gentle but yet clean so well. I don't wear make-up and am a fresh face girl. Although I love his other face washes, I always go back to this one. There is a fishy odor because there is seaweed in it but I wouldn't describe it as overbearing. I use it as a normal face wash, sometimes twice a day... it isn't drying but I actually feel the moisture and and softness immediately. I'll be buying this stuff forever!!!
I love this stuff!
jrich from cleveland, ohio
I use this product every night when I shower and love it. Before, my skin was dry and broke out a lot, now my skin barely breaks out. I don't mind the smell, nor think it's "fishy". The only downside is there is no pump so you have to pour it out to use it, besides that though its great!
I love this product!
Shylo from Bend, Oregon
I use it twice a day, but the seaweed does kind of make my skin irritated so I need a cleanser without exfoliant for one of the washes per day, but would use this one for morning!
Absolutely love this brand!!
RebeccaB from Payson, AZ
Absolutely love Mario Badesco brand! More specifically the Seaweed Cleansing Soap. I have been using it for almost 6 years when I couldn't find any good cleasers for my skin. Also, I kept breaking out while using other greasy cleansers. It makes my skin feel calm, refreshed, awake, and overall my skin appearance looks better. I would highly recommend for combination, dry, and oily skin. Worth every penny!
Feels nice but doesn't do to much for the skin.
Isabel from Austin, TX
I was super excited to use this product because I love MB toners however this product just does not work. If you try to use this to remove makeup it just won't, I have even gone over twice with no results. Now that I know this I will only use this on a clean face in the shower because it does feel nice. I doubt it's ability to clean well so I've switched back to purity. Disappointed because I purchased this large bottle and don't love it.
Great for dry skin
Eb Dex from Georgia
I had to find a new cleanser because I'm currently using an acne treatment that is drying. I love how this product cleanses while moisturizing.
Me from West Virginia
Love this product! Just starting using it a week ago when I got it in a kit and it's done wonders for my skin. I recommend the whole seaweed routine
Smells nice, but not enough exfoliating
AMGRL from Houston, Texas
Smells nice, but I was hoping for more of an exfoliating feeling.
Can't deal with the smell
Lauren from Dublin
I was really looking forward to trying this, but as soon as I started to use it the smell hit me. It also didn't really do a good job of cleansing my face, but the smell was by far the worst part.
Really loved it!!!
Kourtli from Virginia
It was really soothing and relaxing on my skin.
Usually I would've thought that this trendy brand would just make my skin burn; however, I found it very useful and clean to my skin type
Its okay wasnt what i was expecting to be honest
Katt from Fairfax VA
Expected more not what I thought and i dont see any changes in my face
Will be returning
April from Sacramento ca
I wanted to like this but I don't. The exfoliating seaweed in this is next to nothing in terms of exfoliation. It leaves a sticky residue feeling and it also smells bad. I will get my money back for this one.
mgm93 from Virginia
This is the only MB product I didn't immediately love. After multiple tries, I felt like it left a film on my face. Definitely did no cleaning or washing. I had to use a second cleanser each time to get the feeling of the cleanser off of my face. I was really excited for the "exfoliation" but it is no match to MB's other exfoliating cleanser. Won't be finishing my bottle or buying again.
did not even remove makeup
badgalbang from California
I used this a few times before I really noticed but after washing my face I grabbed a make up remover and that took of more of my make up did then thoroughly washing my face with this product was very disappointing lucky Ulta has such a great return policy will not be trying any other products from Mario BADescu
on the fence
heatherfeather79 from Louisiana
The product works really well..applies well.
removes well..however the smell is almost not worth it.
Fave cleanser and makeup remover
Vanillabean from Staten Island, NY
So refreshing and cleansing. Removes all face makeup without having to scrub. Not harsh on the skin and leaves complexion looking vibrant and refreshed. Doesn't work well with removing mascara but 10/10 would recommend.
Not the best
Elle from California
It's a really good cleanser, it does the job. But I've noticed that after some time using it, tiny little white points started to came up all around my face.
Smell from Macon
If you want the smell of cat litter while you're taking a relaxing shower then buy this :(
