First I would like to say Mario Badescu products are very affordable to be high end skin care items. This product did everything that it said it would do and more. It left my face clean and not dry feeling. I would definitely purchase this product again!

I love this toner. It is one of my favorite cruelty free brands. The price is very affordable and a good value. I loved how well it made my skin looked. I have repurchased this a few times now. I also love how gentle the product on the skin. I have forced my friends to try it on more than one occasion.

Love love love this stuff. I use it with my clarisonic. I use it 3 times a week and just love the results so far. I purchase it online from Nordstrom but can also be found at Ulta. Will definitely repurchase as it has become my favorite cleanser.

I have oily acne prone skin so I use this cleanser 2-3 times per week. It's exfoliating but non drying and I'll even leave it on like a mask in the shower for a deep exfoliating treatment. My skin is noticeably smoother and brighter after each use! Love it

I love this stuff! First of all, if you're new to Mario Badescu - their packaging is very generic and boring.. but I would ALWAYS rather a company put more effort into the actual product than the packaging.. because who cares if the packaging is cute - if the product sucks. As far as the product itself, it makes your skin look so fresh, glowy and clean. If you have dry skin - be careful.. do not use this too often, because it will dry it out more. I have dry skin and use it once a week to purge my skin and get all the dead skin and dullness off my face. I can not say enough good things about this.. WARNING: this probably goes without saying but just in case - I want to remind everyone... do NOT put this near your eyes!!

This is a great cleanser for people with acne prone/congested skin. I have very sensitive skin and had to work my way up to using this every day, but after that it kept my skin cleansed and exfoliated without over drying and even helped my cystic acne.

Recently switched to this cleanser and I am very pleased! I use it twice a week and it has kept my skin feeling soft and clean. It’s not too harsh but still has the cleaning properties to keep the skin feeling fresh.

This is a great cleanser for not a bad price with AHA. It's definitely one of my favorites and it takes off all the left over makeup so well! It leaves your skin fresh and ready for the next step in your facial routine!

It dries too much but does clear up skin. I believe the color is nice with the packaging and it is harsher for my sensitive skin. I believe it is pricey and overpriced frankly . I wouldn't recommend this product :

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