This cleanser is fantastic! It gets very foamy if that is something that you like in a cleanser. The smell was a bit off putting at first, but you get used to it quickly. It is very effective and leaves your skin feeling squeaky clean, so I would only use it a few times a week as opposed to every day to avoid stripping your skin.

I have combination skin and this cleanser was alright. I received it in a gift box from ulta and thought I'd give it a try since people rave about this line of products so much. I did love how little of the cleanser you had to use, a little goes a long way. But I hated how it made my face feel. It made my face feel super dry.

Great cleanser. Truly feel like it's good for my skin. I bought this at Ulta and wasn't displeased with the price for a high end product. It was effective, but if you care about packaging it leaves a little to be desired. But I like the bare look, because it's a clean product.

I have extremely sensitive so most exfoliating cleansers irritate my skin but not this one. Ive used this cleanser for about 6 months and my skin looks the best it ever has. You need the tiniest bit so one bottle goes a long way. I 100% would recommend this cleanser to anyone.

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

Has a very fresh smell when it foams and leaves the skin smooth and hydrated after use. This was my first product that I tried from the brand and I can say I am definitely pleased. I will continue to use it from here on out about 3 times a week usually after removing makeup.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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