This is a great product. It's a mid-level name brand so it doesn't break the budget but it so much more beneficial than drugstore brands. I was a chronic abuser of store brand/generic/drug store brand and my skin remained trouble some. Once I made the switch to all Mario B. my skin has been PHENOMENAL!

Great cleanser- foams very nicely and removes all my makeup. It can be a little drying so I only use it occasionally (usually when I'm wearing a lot of makeup and want to remove it). I also love using this as a brush cleaner!

I do enjoy this cleanser but I honestly have no clue what glycolic acid actually does for the skin. I only use this product as recommended for my skin type and my skin feels clean and smooth after use. I received it in a promotional packet at Ulta. I think it is an affordable cleanser but I would recommend looking into it’s purpose before purchase.

I love this product.  I read about it when I was having issues with acne and had never heard of the brand.  This is a gentle and reliable cleanser and I use it religiously.  I bought it on Amazon and while the packaging isn't fancy per se, I know it's a high-quality product.  I highly recommend for anyone who has sensitive skin.

I buy this face wash for my boyfriend. He's an AC tech so he always has a lot of dirt and sweat caked onto his face. He also has oily skin. He specifically asks for this face wash because he says it makes him feel clean. It's relatively affordable. I use it sometimes in a pinch and it's not bad.

This is my go-to cleanser for acne breakouts. It helps to fight oily and bacteria that contribute to acne without causing my skin to completely dry out. I would recommend this for anyone wanting to boost skincare regiment, but specifically for stubborn acne and redness of the skin.

This is a great cleanser to really make your face feel clean! It isn't over drying and it didn't irritate my skin at all. Overall, my skin felt very clean and my pores felt tighter. I highly recommend to all!

A great cleanser - skin always feels clean and fresh. Removes all dirt and makeup! I use this first then follow with an exfoliant or in-shower mask and my skin has been clear and retains its natural moisture as this is very non-drying! It is a thin liquid but it's very cleansing and sudsy!

My favorite brand of all time!! I will recommend anything from this line! After using this, and other products made to work with it, my face feels so incredibly soft and hydrated. It's almost like getting brand new skin. This whole line of skin care products has been a life saver for me!

I used this product to help with my uneven complexion. It foams up nicely and helps get rid of deep down dirt. You should only use 2-3 times a week as it is very drying to skin. I would recommend it, have noticed some lightning of my dark spot but have only been using it for about a month.

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