I love this cleanser. I rotate this with an exfoliating scrub from the same line, Mario Badescu. I am 32 so I just started using anti aging products and this is new to my routine but I can already tell a difference in my overall glow.

One of the strongest cleansers I have ever used. 3 stars because of its extremely active acne clearing qualities but cannot use it due to how dry it leaves my skin. It doesn’t feel tight immediately after but I see it’s peeling effects for days and days after.

If this didn't have SLS in it, it would be perfect. It is a bit harsh for my combo/sensitive skin, however, my husband loves it and can wash his face everyday with it! The price and results that I have had are great for a cleanser that contains glycolic acid~

This cleanser gives me that extra umph I need especially since I enjoy going fresh faced throughout the week to avoid breakouts. It keeps my acne at bay while enhancing my natural skin for a dewy and blemish free result!

This product is drying. It does it's job but be careful. I recommend using this product once a weak. It's slightly harsh if you have sensitive skin. It's a great product just be careful with use.

Overall I love this product. It never fails though, it completely burns my eyes when I’m using in the shower. I always manage to get some near my eyes. I have seen results with this product and would definitely recommend

I’m fast approaching 30 which means my skin care game needs to take a major step up and repair before it’s too late. I swear this did significant help in just one use. I used it with my Clarisonic brush and my skin felt amazing!

Amazing face wash! This stuff works wonders on skin that needs to turn over more than others! I can't believe the change in my skin since beginning to use this stuff. I will forever use this wash in my weekly skincare routine. Buy it to change your skin!
