This cleanser is great. I love how clean it makes my skin look and feel. I also love how affordable the products from this line are. I love using this when my skin feel really dirty or after a long makeup day.

This product is very good for cleansing the skin and removal of acne scars. It's very strong so use it once every two weeks. I bought min at ulta but you can find it online as well. The packaging is simple.

Really great to use 3 times maximum per week. I have bought it a Nordstrom and just restocked. Gentle texture m, but effective at getting rid of dead skin cells. This is in my permanent skincare regiment.

If my skin needs a pick me up for some brightening with minor exfoliating properties. I use this and I love it. It doesn’t overly dry out my skin and no reactions unlike other products with glycolic acid.

Works well for those with oily skin. I use after I have removed my makeup. I purchased this from Ulta. I would recommend this to other people. The packaging is sleek and easy to use. Enjoy this product.

Cleanses off all makeup, and makes my skin feel perfectly clean.  Also smells excellent!  My only complaint is that if you get this in your eyes, it hurts like hell!  But a great value!

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.
