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 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 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!

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.

Really brightens my skin! Don't use this with another harsh cleanser ... use this 2-3 times a week and you will really see a difference! I like this scent ... it's very clean and refreshing! If you're in your mid twenties or older, I definitely recommend!

It smells wonderful and is all natural. I would say it's a good value and not pricey like some namebrand products. This was my first time using it, and I bought it at Ulta. I don't think there was much room for improvement, since it was a good product.

I use this cleanser about 2-3 times a week as suggested. I do like how it feels like it is cleaning my skin deeply. I havent noticed any major changes in my skin however and I've been using this product for a while. However my skin does feel cleaner

I've been using it for about a week and I already can see a different in the firmness and fine lines on my forehead and around my eyes. I would highly recommend this product to anyone with the beginning signs of aging that's looking for a cost efficient cleanser.

Does product work if used interchangeably with other facial products or does it have it's own line i.e., Cleanser, toner and moisturizer ?

I already use a glycolic night serum, but I want to try a wash too. Is it too much/too intense to use this wash in the morning and a glycolic serum at night?
