I love this Cleanser. I started using it about 8 weeks ago along with a few other Mario Badescu products that I’ve incorporated into my daily skincare routine. I like that this Cleanser doesn’t foam up or even really suds up. It feels like you’re rubbing a lotion or serum on your face and then rinsing it off. It has a light clean scent to it and doesn’t dry my skin out like most cleansers do. It isn’t harsh on my skin at all and does the job. Minus the initial purge my skin did when I first started my new routine about 8 weeks ago, I haven’t had a single breakout since using this Cleanser twice a day. There’s even days that I skip at night or wake up late and skip the morning cleanse. I bought it at Ulta and for the miracle it’s done for my skin, $14 before tax (8 oz bottle) is well worth it. I tried this in the travel size first and made that last for almost two months cleansing with it twice daily. Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel

I cannot live without this cleanser. I ordered the sample kit from the Mario badescu website that was tailored to my skin (only paid like $2) and I knew I needed the cleanser ASAP. I suffer from hormonal cystic pimples that like to invade my chin every month. I use to ice them in hopes that they wouldn’t erupt (which would work like 75% btw) but I would always have at least one per month without fail. Being cystic pimples, they would last forever and by the time one was finally leaving the next would come out.

After using this cleanser that gently exfoliates, I have not had one cystic pimple. It has been 5 months!

After spending hundreds of dollars on skincare products at my spa with little to no effect, I decided to try something new and less expensive. The Mario Badescu line is wonderful!! This gel cleanser makes my face feel clean and refreshed. I use it once or twice a day depending on whether I feel like using another product or not. It doesn't disappoint. Try it!!

Okay. So, I got this for $7 (half the price) during Ulta's 21 Days of Beauty, and at the time I was on top of the world. A great skincare product for half the price!? This is awesome! WRONG. I've used this product a total of 6 times over the course of two weeks, incorporating it into my regular cleansing routine, and my skin is so angry with me. I have small bumps all along my hairline and forehead, as well as bumps and irritation all down my chin and neck. I used my regular cleanser this morning and it calmed it down a little bit, but since this is the only new product I've added into my routine, it's safe to say that I won't be using it again. I'm not too upset about it (other than the fact that it broke me out) because I only paid $7 for it, but I really wish it worked because I love Mario Badescu so much.

Don’t get me wrong: for a face wash and for the price of this product, it’s great. It doesn’t dry out my skin or leave it feeling too oily, and it smells good as well. My only issue, and this is my fault, is that this product is NOT paraben free, which is what is causing me, and many other users to have small white head breakouts. If paraben and breakouts don’t concern you, this is a great face wash, but for sensitive, acne prone skin i don’t recommend this product.

Just bought this to try it and I'm not sure yet how I feel about it entirely. It has a lovely smell and I love the packaging of it. I have combo skin and after using it my skin gets oily but I'm not sure if it's the cleanser or the moisturizer I use with it. I will update review. It does help taking makeup off though so I like that!

I love this cleanser! It leaves my skin feeling clean, smooth, and soft. It's lighteeight and has a pleasant scent that's not too overpowering. I've been using this in my morning and night skincare routine and it's helped to clear up my face so much. They have sales at ulta where if you spend a certain amount on Mario products you get free gifts. So if you're interested in getting this I would check out ulta either in stores or online to see what kind of extra you might be able to get.

My GO to daily facial cleanser! I bought in a 3 piece set at ULTA on Blk Friday for $12. Absolutely worth the price. Very affordable. Scent is yummy, very fresh. Leaves my skin fresh, clean, hydrated and doesn't dry my face out. Non greasy. Easy to apply. Simply wet face, apply in circular motion, rinse clean with warm water. I use a Mario exfoliater weekly as well.
Save your receipts, most stores have great makeup/beauty return policies .

I absolutely love this cleanser! It’s a non-foaming gel cleanser which I like so it doesn’t strip your skin. The creamy, light weight texture is amazing on the skin. It takes away all of your makeup, even stubborn eye makeup without having to rub too much in those delicate areas. Leaves the skin looking bright and clean ✨

I have dry skin as well and it helps to remove the dry skin that I sometimes have around my nose with its natural papaya and grapefruit enzymes. It’s very gentle too! The bottle claims it’s suited for all skin types and I definitely agree. I recommend it for anyone who has sensitive, dry skin.

This is one of my favorite cleansers. I have been trying all sorts of different cleansers my entire life. I struggled with acne when I was younger but as I've aged my skin has been fairly mild. With that being said, I will breakout from time to time. And I usually find myself coming back to this product when I feel like my face it at it's worst. I do like to switch up my cleansers on a regular basis but this will always be one of my go to's!
