I just recently started using this in my skincare routine. So far, so good! My skin is dry and I feel like this product helps remove the dead skins. The smell is nice too! I would definitely purchase again. I bought this at Ulta. It was a good price! I think I paid $16. I don’t use it daily, so it’s lasting me :)

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.

Not too drying/stripping and leaves skin feeling clean. I can't give it a full 100%-5 stars because a cleanser that isn't drying in the summer months may be too harsh in the winter months. Definitely will might become a holy grail if I don't find a cheaper alternative that works the same.

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!

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.

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!
