It was just OK. I used it for about a month and it was pretty drying if used often. I recommend using it once or twice a week. It cleaned the face well but for the price it was just ok. Don't forget to moisturizer after using.

Been using this everyday at night to cater towards my acne after I wash my makeup off and I'm so surprised at how well it's been eliminating my acne problem areas. Only thing is, it has a very chemical smell but other than that it does the job!

I have LOVED this cleanser! It foams up so well and I truly feel like my skin gets clean when I use it. My pores always feel purified and fresh after I use it. I use it three times a week and it never dries my face out.

This is my daily cleanser. It is perfect. Gentle on my skin, yet harsh on my pimples and discoloration. It leaves my skin smooth and perfectly moisturized. I will continue using. Plus the bottle is practical and travels well.

Mario Badescu is my FAVORITE skincare line. It all started with the use of their Glycolic Foaming Face Wash. My skin is clean, tight and healthy. If I could only use one skin product for tge rest of my life, it would be this.

This is the product that completely changed my skin. I didn’t have an acne problem but I didn’t like the texture on my skin. I use this 2-3 times a week and I’ve seen great improvements in my skin. It’s a must have for me.

I use this 2-3 times a week as a chemical exfoliator. It smells nicer than some of their other face washes and it leaves my skin so smooth! It also works magic in clearing up any cystic acne whenever it starts to pop up!!!

Got the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser from the Mario Badescu website in a sample pack. I’ve been using it 1-2 times a week after removing my makeup. My skin feels nice and smooth after using it. Works well for my combo skin.
