Nice product but a bit drying! Don't use it everyday! Honestly makes your skin look great but is a bit much for daily use! Price is great! Overall not a bad product! I enjoy the smell! A little goes a super long way. Use it with a more hydrating cleanser and alternate days

Love the idea of this...foams up nicely and really nice and refreshing. However it is a little drying and I tend to like creamy cleansers better. It also doesn't work well to remove makeup so you will need something like micellar water or a pre cleansing oil beforehand.

I got this cleanser because I heard that using glycolic acid can help with redness, and after using it for a year or so I have definitely noticed an improvement in my skin. I have skin on the dryer side so I only use it about once a week to keep from drying out my face.

I received this as a free gift with a purchase at Ulta. I didn't like the strong chemical smell and it made my lips burn but it definitely thoroughly cleaned my skin. All Mario Badescu packaging is bland but for the price of the products you can't complain.

Absolutely love this cleanser! A make up artist friend recommended the Mario Badescu live to me, I started with the trial kit for oily/combo skin and this is my never miss a day product for the line. Just ordered the acne and aging skin kits to try out those products!

I have been using all MB skin care products for about two months now and I am absolutely obsessed! Adding this cleanser to my nightly routine three times a week really gave my skin the kick it needed to start healing some of my texture. I would 100% buy this product again.

I am sold. I purchased the entire line of glycolic products from Mario Badescu about 3 months ago and love it. I initially purchased the sample set to try it out and was very pleased with the little investment it took to get started- its well worth the purchase!

One of my ride-or-dies for breakouts. This is the BEST product to dry up any blemishes that you have. It is a drying cleanser, so I wouldn't recommend using on a daily basis unless you have oily skin. I've had the same bottle for 18 months now and still going strong.

I absolutely love this cleanser! A little goes a long way as the cleanser gets very foamy. It has a nice light fragrance and leaves my skin feeling so soft. With continued use, this cleanser has helped fade some of my acne scars. I love using this product twice weekly.

An amazing, super effective, super exfoliating cleanser. For it's brand and sheer power, it is wonderfully priced. It is not too gentle but not too harsh, I use it every other day (just don't let it get in your eyes!) and i would DEFINITEY repurchase once it runs out.

Does this work well with the treatment of hormonal acne? Specially around the jaw and chin area.
