I really like this face cleanser. It makes me skin feel refreshed and soft and it just wakes me up. I thought it wasn't gonna be that good and it was gonna be like every other face products I use and they never work.. I found it one day when I was in ulta and I decided to give it a try. It does dry me out  a little bit after the 3rd time using it but I usually just put on a moisturizer and i'm good. So far it hasn't broken me out and it's been really nice for me. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good cheap face cleanser. Mario Badescu does have some great products and this is deferentially one of them in my opinion.  I would buy this again!

This has helped resurface my skin gently! It's a great price point as well. The only gripe I have about this is that it is very drying on the skin since it is foaming. I use it twice a week to decongest my skin, but since it foams up a lot, it strips my skin of the natural oils and moisture so I wish they made a non foaming version. You only need the smallest amount of this to rub between your hands to foam and then that is enough to cover your whole face. Careful not to get it into your eyes!! If you use this product, I highly recommend you also use very moisturizing toners, serums, and creams afterwards.

While I would not recommend this product for all skin types, it’s amazing! (Not recommended for sensitive, rosacea, inflamed, post peel) I would not use this daily, but 2-3 times a week as it is rather active. Mario Badescu is a great product line overall that has stood the test of time. It’s a great value, as the focus is on the product, not the packaging or advertising. I’ve used many of the products over the years and have always had great results.Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser

I bought this in a kit it's apart of Mario Badescu's Radient Skin Trio kit (available at Anthropology) it's priced at $41 which is a great price for full priced products 🙌🏾. It's been a week and I already love how my skin looks and feels. This product is tough, but gentle on skin and it smells great! I'll def will be rebuying when I'm almost out.

Amazing light weight cleanser gets my face so clean and makes it feel amazing! Also completely love the scent and how it’s not too bubbly! I have oily and sensitive skin and it doesn’t dry it out at all! Already on my 3rd bottle!

I'm in a I do but don't like it situation.  First of when I use it I don't feel like I'm doing much, and my skin feels sensitive afterwards.  I use it once a week unless my skin is super oily and have hormone break outs. What I like about this product is that it doesn't leave your face feeling like it has been stripped and it also leaves it soft. It definitely works and recommend if you have acne but it might be to harsh if you have sensitive skin

Didn't really go well with my skin. I have combination skin and used it as directed. I used it once a week and I felt that when I would use it my skin would break out a little and it made my skin sensitive. I don't have sensitive skin at all so I was shocked to see that it was. Everyone has different skin, but this product didn't work for me. If you are hesistant to try it, buy the small travel size instead of the big regular sized bottle.

Review for: Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser
Really great to use 3 times maximum per week. I have bought it a Nordstrom and just restocked. Gentle texture m, but effective at getting rid of dead skin cells. This is in my permanent skincare regiment.
