Most Helpful Positive Review This is ah-maz-ing!
I use this product almost every night to take off my face makeup after work. I will say I never wear a huge amount of makeup, just a BB cream and a brow pencil. I've never used it to remove eye given that it has AHA in it which I believe is considered a chemical exfoliant.
Sometimes I use it alone which make my skin the smoothest any product has ever make my skin feel without being a mask. It leaves my skin feeling cleansed, not stripped, and oddly enough sometimes moisturized. When I use it with my clarisonic, my skin is baby smooth. The only downside with using it with a clarisonic is it does not sud up, so there is a lot of friction from the brush head, but I just use more product and a little of a product that lathers.
Since using this product I've noticed less breakouts around my period, my makeup goes on smoother, and my face isn't dried out which always happens when I try new products. I get really antsy when it comes to beauty products and I'm always looking for something better but I'm pretty sure this is going to be my staple cleanser.
Most Helpful Critical Review it's decent
I needed some travel size product for a trip and researched my needs (i.e., oily skin, etc) and came up w/ two items that interested me; this being one of them.
I liked it, it smells decent and removed makeup, excess oil, etc. Plus, the overall price on his products are really good. With that said, I can't complain. I'm still using the product in the morning but my main purpose was to use while I went to the beach. No breakouts from it, etc. so all is well!

ARG from Portland, Oregon
I've been using this for years. I always buy the travel size because it lasts forever. A little goes a long way. Sometimes I leave it on my face for a little while like a mask and it helps exfoliate. The only con is that it is not great at removing makeup.
If I HAD to pick only ONE face wash, THIS.
Agent Snogpitch from Olathe, KS
I use this in the shower with a little Dermalogica's daily microfoliant sprinkled on top of it, with a facial cleansing brush, followed by the Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser. But THIS cleanser -- the Enzyme Cleansing Gel -- is the PERFECT AM *AND* PM cleanser for me. It's not over-drying. It's not overly moisturizing/greasy. You can add a physical exfoliant to it if needed, like I do, or you can follow it up with heavy duty moisturizers if necessary. You can use a dry brush first. Or a pre-cleanse oil to remove makeup. This is a STAPLE, and for me and my sensitive skin, it is the ONE face wash I would pick if I had to pick just one.
Hit or miss
EA from WI
Not sure if my skin is taking a while to get used to it or if it's really making my break out bad. Doing a test patch on my arm tonight to see if it is irritating my skin. Otherwise it smells great and is nice to use after using a makeup wipe to get makeup off.
Haven't really used it enough to know how I like it. I just

I wash my face with this. It seems to do a good job so far, but I really haven't had it long enough to tell if I've going to buy it again
I love this!
SaraK814 from Sterling Heights, MI
I love this product, it's effective while still being gentle on my sensitive skin. I've tried the glycolic cleanser from this brand, and this is much gentler. I use this cleanser every night and have needed to exfoliate much less often. I will definitely be buying a larger bottle of this!
Not what I expected
Denada10 from Lubbock Texas
Not what I expected. Did not lather and caused my facial skin to dry out.
Broke me out like crazy
Ashlynn from california
I have used mario badescu products before and currently use some now, and no product broke me out like this one. I have acne prone skin and the employee told me it would help but it only made my skin worse :( I tried it on my arm to see if it was only my face, and my arm broke out in pimples the next morning, which is so weird because i've never had body acne. Would give this 0 stars if i could.
Smells like I'm at the pool
Madi from In
When I first out this on it reminded me of swimming. I do love swimming so it was a very pleasant smell. I followed the directions of 2 times a day and after 2 days I saw a different in my face. It's almost as clear as it gets in the summer.
I LOVE this cleanser
Enj from Oregon
This is my second time buying this since it works so well for me. It really goes nice with the rest of the products I use on a regular basis, and helps with my oily skin. Also smells really good!😃❤️

Was traveling and forgot to pack face wash. Picked up this travel sized gem at Ulta and it did not disappoint. Have always wanted to try this and am glad I did. It's fresh smelling, thick enough with a small dollop, and washes cleanly off. I feel refreshed after use.
Nita from Bloomfield Hills, Mi
I haven't been using this product long at all, but so far I do like the way its cleanses my skin. It does not foam or lather which I really enjoy in a cleanser.
My favorite face wash!
Libby from Indiana
I love using the product as my face wash in the shower. makes my skin so soft and free of tiny bumps. drys out my pimples but keeps my skin moisturized.
not worth the price
jo from tx
horrible feeling trying to take off makeup with this cleanser. doesn't even take foundation off. it's alright to use without makeup on
Great face cleanser
Natasha from Jacksonville, Florida
Love this cleanser! Makes my skin feel super soft after washing it off. You don't need much to cleanse your entire face, it does it's work by removing my make up pretty well. Doesn't make my skin break out, I have combination type skin. Overall it's a wonderful product! Only got the travel size to test it out to see if I liked it or not and I will definitely be purchasing the full size
Waste of money
Sweetheart from NM
purchased this and it doesnt even feel like it cleans my skin no lather no suds no sign of it working as a cleanser at all!
Just doesn't do it for me
Adiction from Miami FL
My face just didn't feel clean after the cleaning. But the smell is nice. Maybe it's just too lite for my face
I will continue to purchase
Carla K from The Colony, TX
Every item Item I have purchased from this line has been excellent. My skin looks clear and dewy.
Still under review
Joei from Moore Oklahoma
Hate that it's not foaming up although It's a gel base product, I believe it should at least a tingling sensation so I know it's working! I use a clearasonic spin brush when I use this product which I do highly recommend a spin brush for the face! I do it twice daily morning and night but I also use another face wash that tingles to make sure i am getting all the unwanted blemishes and hidden dirt on my face!
This will be a staple in my skin care
Shortdna from Cleveland Ohio
I use this morning and night after I take my make up off. It doesn't lather so it's not super harsh but it literally gets the job done
Best product Ever

I love it

Love the way my face feels after using this cleanser!
em from new york
i picked this up at Ulta today, the smell was.. sort of nostalgic? it smelled like dandelion stems to me, and it was so gentle and softening on my face. I'll definitely repurchase once i run out :)
Love how soft it leaves my fave
Erika from Los Angeles
I use it twice a day and when I feel like I'm about to break out, I mix it with the acne wash. Works wonders!!!
Cass from California
It never irritated my skin and always left it super soft. I got this for my sister and mom both love this a lot.
pretty good buy!
madison from Missouri
I bought this for my night time cleanser and I feel as though it gets the job done after a day of sweating. I feared that this would dry out my skin but it leaves my face feeling soft but clean! It says it is for cleansing surface oil and dirt so I obviously wondered if it would fail at clearing out my pores on a deeper level but I have yet to see a negative response from my skin.
