Not for sensitive skin but maybe great for oily skin types

About Me Brand Buyer

Pros

  • Leaves Clean Feel
  • Smells Great

Cons

  • Dries Out Skin
  • Irritates Skin

Best Uses

  • Acne-Prone Skin
  • Combination Skin
  • Oily Skin

Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion:

This stuff will be great for anyone with oily skin because it does help soak up the oil and leave you with a clean tingly feeling. For my face which is VERY sensitive though, after a couple days it started to make my face red where I was using it. I then noticed that the bottle is mainly made up of Isopropyl Alcohol and so it pretty much immediately dried my skin horribly but then started making it red the more I used it. Like I said though it could be great for people that need that oil on their face to be dried up!

      Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion:

      It costs more than I usually like to spend, but it's worth it. I've had mild acne for a long time and it's left behind faded red marks, and this helps to fade those and make my skin tone a lot more even. I've noticed a lot of improvement from pairing this with the face wash. The only slight problem is that the yellow color of the liquid can stain fabric when it's wet, but as soon as it dries it stays on your face, so that's fine.

      I felt like it made my skin worse

      Best Uses

        Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion:

        My skin is usually crystal clear but for the past two or so months i've had breakouts that I'd consider bad. I bought this product in hope of putting an end to the little breakouts I get but I'm pretty sure it made it even worse. Day after day I'd get new pimples and it felt like it was doing ABSOLUTELY nothing. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone.

          Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion:

          I have very oily, blemish prone skin that's been a problem for the longest time. After hearing so much about this brand I decided to give some products a try. This product has by far been the best. I have never used a toner until now and it's working wonders. I used to have so much redness all around my face and now I have an even skin tone. This has also helped tone down the excessive oils I used to have. My face is rarely oily anymore and it's amazing. Buy this product!

          Comments about Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion:

          this is my first review EVER and i just had to cause this lotion plus the enzyme cleansing gel has changed my skin from a 3 to a 10! i have combination skin, oily/sensitive/dry and winter was rough. I had tiny bumps all over my skin, roughness, breakouts etc. I went through so many expensive products and nothing helped until this! within days my skin is clear and baby bottom soft! I'm shook at how well this worked. I'll be recommending this to everyone.

            If in doubt buy the trial kits first! This toner keeps my skin clean and clear! If I use anything else I get the dreaded acne bumps.
            I tried trial size first then bought the big bottle. Mario Badscu really clears my skin!

                A:

                They are formulated for different skin types. Our Special Cucumber Lotion can be used on combination to oily skin, with daily or weekly breakouts. The Seaweed Cleansing Lotion can be used on dry, sensitive or combination skin that experiences breakouts.

                A:

                Our Special Cucumber Lotion would be a great option as your toner to help reduce breakouts and congestion while balancing the skin. For those with sensitive skin, we recommend patch testing the product before use.

              Should this replace the facial spray (aloe,herbs and rose water)? I believe when I purchased this I may have thought it could be used as a lotion.

                Our Special Cucumber Lotion is a toner that can be used on combination to oily, acne prone skin. We do not suggest using our Facial Sprays as toners.
