I've been using this cleanser for over a month now. I could notice a difference in my skin fairly quickly. I now use it every other day. I found my skin dried out when using it every day. I don't have break outs often. My skin looks brighter and clearer.

If I could give 10 stars for the Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser, I would. It has truly help keep my acne prone skin under control. The foam is light and once you wash, your skin feels so clean and fresh. You will not go wrong with this choice.

My favorite glycolic cleanser of all time! I only use this twice a week but I can really see the difference it makes in my skin along with the other products that I use. It foams very nicely on the face and it has a nice smell as well. Mario is the best!

This thing is amazing!! Woot! I love it so much, I got it as a sample at ulta and kept repurchasing because of the results! It helped clear my acne and redness, but I only use it once or twice a week or else it could do the opposite. It's a great buy.

This stuff is so great and leaves my face smooth! I use it a few times a week after my regular cleanser in the shower as an extra measure. The bottle is huge and you only need a tiny bit of cleanser each time so it'll last forever! I really like the smell too.

This cleanser is awesome for sensitive, acne prone skin. My face used to break out nonstop, I started using this day and night with the drying lotion occasionally and I no longer have any problems with my skin.

This product is perfect for removing my makeup as well as cleaning deep into my skin. I've noticed less texture and my uneven skin tone has improved quickly. The product is perfectly priced and I'd buy it again and again. Highly recommend buying this!

I love Mario Badescu products, especially this Gylolic foaming cleanser. It has made my face so much more fresh and smooth. It is not too harsh but it is still effective and has certainly met my expectation. I would buy it again for sure it is great!

I only used it a few times because I was using someone else's as I forgot to bring my own face products. But the product made my face feel very nice and refreshed. Personally it wasn't too harsh it was quite gentle. I've heard a lot of about the Mario products and I feel like all the praise it gets is well deserved. I would recommend it to others.

The smell of this is absolutely horrid. Also, it stings your eyes so bad! Even if you open them for a second, it's the worst! However, it's great for oily skin and I felt that it was rather nice and not too harsh. It didn't leave my skin red or dry.

Should I use a glycolic acid toner if I already use a glycolic cleanser? I have dark scars on my cheeks and I learned that glycolic acid will help with fading them away. So I got the Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser and I use this 3 times a week. I've been using it for about 2 weeks and at first the results were pretty good. My skin felt better, my scars had lightened a little bit but now I don't really feel anything. I'm now considering to get [product:the-ordinary-glycolic-acid-7%-toning-solution] for everyday use and hopefully faster effects. Is this a good idea? If no what are your suggestions? I have dry skin and my scars form on my cheeks as you can see in the picture.

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