Most Helpful Positive Review OMG! IN LOVE... MIRACLE WORKER
I originally went in for another product and ended up leaving with this. I have EXTREMELY dry and sensitive skin, lately I've been under an immense amount of stress so have been breaking out worse then I ever have in my life! My esthetician told me that glycolic acid could potentially help with scaring and build up of dry dead skin cells.
I use This every third night followed by the gycolic acid toner, the rest of the time I have been using Mario Badescu Seaweed cleanser and toner! I use a dry skin formulated moisturizer. I have also been taking a supplement l-lysine to help prevent breakouts from starting.
Between the two they have completely reduced all redness and inflammation, my break out is slowly subsiding and the scarring is fading, all the awful scabs have slowly been shedding leaving healthier looking skin under... I have been using this regimen for 6 days!!! my skin feels smooth and their is a drastic reduction in redness everyday. It feel healthy and happy <3 <3
I am a believer THANK YOU MARIO BADESCU <3
Most Helpful Critical Review Broke Me Out with Horrible Cystic Acne
After reading hundreds of great reviews, I really wanted to love this product. I have oily/acne prone skin and I had finally managed to control my acne when I decided to try this product to lighten up my scars. It was a horrible mistake. Instead, I broke out with painful cystic acne all over my checks and jaw line. At first I stuck to it because I thought I was "purging," but after about 5 weeks of use, it wasn't getting any better and I was still breaking out. I won't give up on MB completely, I have used their seaweed cleanser with no issues, but the glycolic face cleanser was just not for me. I have stopped using it and praying my skin recovers soon!!
Reviewed by 695 customers Great product, love it, do not love some of the ingredients
Clementine from Boston, MA
I have been using this for a year and love the way my skin feels after. I was reading all the ingredients, don't know why i never looked before. Just disappointed to see it had parabens and SLS in it. Hoping eventually they might become a cleaner line.
Leaves your skin feeling clean and feeling soft
Rena from Iowa
Every time I use it I breakout days later but I love how my skin feels after using it
great for hyperpigmentation
les from compton
I have always been darker around the neck and elbows because hyperpigmentation, but ive been applying some as body wash on my elbows and neck and knees and leaving it on for about 5 minutes in the shower and its actually working. Its evening out my skin tone from little scars and lightening up my problem areas a bit. worth a try.
Good so far
Vee from California
It has a pleasant citrus scent. I use a dime size amount or a little more. Foams up quick. It lighten/brighten up my skin on first use. I did have some dryness around my nose. I believe Glycolic makes your skin sensitive to the sun so wear sunscreen and a hat if possible. My face turned red when I went to get the mail.
my favorite cleanser
mom628 from OH
Not a fan of the ingredients
Cocodee from New York
I only used the product once before I realized it contained SLS and fragrances that could strip the skin and be irritating. So if you are ingredient conscious or want a "clean" product this is not it.
Laura from Texas
I use it once everyday. It helped with little bumps and acne scars. Just be careful if you have open acne.
not a fan
SLB from Charlotte, NC
Really wasn't a fan. I could not use enough water to avoid eye irritation. Decided to take this out of the line up and replaced it with a paraben free cleanser.
I don't often review products, but I will for this one!
Kristen from Seattle, WA
I used this for the first time when I bought the Anti-Aging Regimen Kit and I liked it but I wanted to try other cleansing products for my skin. After getting meh results, I decided to go back to this and try it again. Well, I can tell you that my face is SO HAPPY! I accidentally purchased 2 and I'm so glad I did. I put one in the shower to use every morning and one under my sink to use at night. My face is softer and smoother and my rosacea red cheeks are much calmer. I highly recommend this for anyone who needs help with wrinkles and redness!

Skin care by hyram does not recommend

I use it once a day.
D- from Kingsport, Tn
This is one of my every day cleansing products, love it.
Watch out for things with SLS
Court from Colorado
Gave me perioral dermatitis because of the sodium lauryl sulfate. Do not recommend for people with sensitive skin! As soon as I stopped using it my skin cleared back up
Good from Altoona PA
I like this product, it's good to have in your cabinet but not to use it all the time if you have sensitive skin or dry skin. it's good to use every so often, depending on your skin type.
Jules from Diamond bar, ca
I've used this a few times and it was fine. The last time I used it, it left the area under my eyes red and painful. Almost like it stripped layers of my skin off and I aged 50 years.
Sam from San Creek
Made my skin even more bumby
Shay from Bozeman, MT
Every morning I use this acid cleanser.
I've used this for over 25 years
Fly Girl from Colorado Springs, CO
I've used this product for years. I always tried other products but this is my go to every time. I love it. Mario Badescu products are great depending what you need it for. I use this usually at night but you can also use it in the morning. I choose to use the Green Enzyme Cleanser. I get compliments on my skin often. This product is definitely worth it.
LOVE THIS CLEANSER SO MUCH!
Jayla from California
I love this cleanser SO MUCH! I have pretty much all of the Mario Badescu cleansers and a few of their other products but this one and the orange cleansing soap are the BEST! I know that it says to use this cleanser 1-3 times per week but I use it daily because I have not seen any bad side effects of doing so. I apply a small amount and mix it with water and then use a facial cleansing brush. If you have any type of acne (Blackheads, white heads etc) BUY THIS! Don't hesitate a second because this product has single handedly cleared my skin.
Ana from Florida
I use it twice a week.
LOVE this product - wish they would remove the toxins
KMarie from TX
I really like the way this cleanser feels and it does work really well. It doesn't dry out my skin. I made the mistake of thinking this was a natural brand, only to discover it's anything but. This product (and others) are still full of parabens and other toxins that most brands have removed. They need to reformulate for the 2020's. I really wish they would - I'd buy this again if the known toxins were removed.
Worked great for my Lupus rash!
Lupus mcgoo from New York
Works great on butterfly rash!
Follow the Directions!
Lili from Modesto, Ca
I use this product 2-3 times a week, or sometimes once if my skin is doing really good. It even helps with cystic pimples on my chin, that I get when it's my time of the month. Just follow the directions before you use it. It's completely normal for you skin to feel dry if you over use this product.
Works great for my purposes
Bella from Pa
I bought this simply so I would have a quality face wash at my dad's house without having to haul all my others. It does the job for what I use it for. I don't use it often enough to know if it works well. I use it twice every two weeks but it works for those days.
Becca from Baton Rouge
I love this cleanser. I've only used it a few times since buying since it isn't supposed to be a daily face wash, but I can really see a difference from my normal face wash.
