I like this product more than I expected. When I ordered it, I didn’t realize it was only 3% glycolic avid, which i figures was too small of a dose to make a difference. To my surprise, it tingles upon application, which is a good sign that the glycolic acid is affective at breaking through the first, tough layer of skin. I have a actually seen an improvement in texture in just four uses! I used another AHA product last month, so I’m not anticipating a huge purge phase since that’s only about one natural skin cycle, but we will see. The only drawback is the smell. It smells very dated, like mature women’s perfume. The smell actually reminds me of something my grandmother used before she passed away. Other than that I would highly recommend this product! Still curious to see how a lower dose of glycolic acid continues to work on my skin, but so far, so good! This is priced great too. The smell is also better than the heavy fragrance of the Pixi Glow Tonic.

I have never been so happy with a toner for problematic skin. I get dry patches around my cheeks and chin area and that is primarily the area that I break out in. It is known that glycolic acid is known for fighting acne and is added to many products such as peels. This stuff does a great job at toning my skin without drying it out. The price point is also great on this. It has a very nice cap which makes it easy to control the amount of product that you are putting without wasting it. I am very happy that I discovered this one.

This stuff is amazing!!!! I️ usually use a toner but just can’t stand how strong some of them are! They burn your eyes even if you’re not even close to your eyes with the product . And to me , that is kind of scary that it’s making your eyes burn, I’m not sure if I️t should be on your sensitive skin . This stuff is totally different! I️t is gentile but gets the job done and does I️t well. It’s not a strong odor and I️t doesn’t burn your eyes at all and feels cool on the skin. It’s awesome and I’ll continue buying this

Review for: Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner, 16 oz. more...
This is the first toner i have used after switching from harsher astringents that just completely dry out my face. A toner helps to keep my skin oil free, minimizes pores, and helps with blackheads. I tried this after loving so many other Mario skincare products and i completely recommend it! I have noticed my skin clearing up with my new skin routine, and i have begun to use this prior to applying any moisturizer.

I purchased this 8oz toner for $16 at ULTA Beauty and boy am I obsessed with it. I've never used a toner before, but I tried this product to test out the waters, and my skin is loving it. I use it directly after cleansing/drying my face (two cotton pads, swiping across my face in upwards motions), followed by a moisturizer, finished off with Mario Badescu's Facial Spray with Aloe, Rosewater, and Herbs. My pores have been visibly reduced the past two weeks that I've been using the product, and I feel that my face feels more deeply moisturized because of the glycolic acid allowing my moisturizer to soak in deeper. Overall I absolutely love this product and as someone with extremely sensitive skin, I would still recommend it!! I've had no adverse reactions to it, although I would recommend doing a patch test first to make sure you won't have a reaction.

I love Mario Badescu products. Even though I have sensitive skin, I used this toner twice a week and it did not irritate my skin. I would not use this as my regular toner since my skin requires a more soothing one, so I used this more as my AHA acid in my routine. I really liked it and recommended it to my mom and she seems to enjoy it and use it more! I would definitely recommend it!

I'm already on my second bottle of this toner and I will absolutely continue to buy. Prior to using this product, I had dull bumpy skin. I've never had acne but always these tiny little bumps on my face that would never go away. This has cleared up my skins texture dramatically. Out of any skin product I've ever used, this one has provided me with the most dramatic results.

I began using this toner a few weeks ago and I can tell the difference in my skin. It has left my face brightened, and is slowly making me look less tired and dull each morning without exfoliation. It soaks into my skin fairly easily, and doesn't leave behind excess that needs to be wiped away. I have had no issue with Mario Badescu's products and I would recommend them to anyone.

I have been using this about twice a week in my nightly skincare routine for the last 5 years. I like the way it feels going on my skin, but no matter what, it dries out my otherwise oily skin almost immediately. No matter what serum or lotion I put on afterwards, my skin feels slightly irritated. I do think it has helped keep fine lines at bay, though, and I will continue to use it!

This toner help me with my acne, it got recommended by one other ladies at ulta. i was getting a lot of acne and build up around my cheek and edges of my nose. I saw that my complexion was clearing up, and some of the acne scars were fading. It might be too harsh for sensitive skin but i definitely recommend it.

Does this break anyone else out? I bought it and used it for a few days and noticed little tiny breakouts everywhere on my face. If this has happened to anyone else did you keep using it and did it eventually stop breaking you out??
