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 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 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.

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!

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.

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.

I love this stuff, It is great as a face wash! I keep it in my shower and use once a day. It is really gentle on the skin, and cleans thoroughly. The price is okay, but I wish they had a bigger bottle so I wouldn't run out so fast. I have dry sensitive skin and It worked great on me.

I recently tried this facial cleanser because I'd heard really good reviews about it. It's amazing! My skin is so clear and soft! I love it! And it only takes a small drop to clean my whole face. I'm very glad I tried this brand and I will continue to try other products from Mario Badescu

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.

I have seen so many youtubers rave about this brand but I can't find myself to spend the money. Is it really worth it or are there cheaper better things on the market?
