This wasn’t horrible but wasn’t one of my favorites either. I bought a kit with a few Mario products in it and I honestly wasn’t that all impressed. It’s not the worst I’ve used but not the best either.

For texture issues this is a homerun! I love the gel base and love that i can use this inbetwren microdermabrasions. It was surprising amount for the price and it has no scent!

This leaves my skin super clean and soft. I use this 3 to 4 days a week at night. It's not over drying and doesn't leave my face red and I have super sensitive skin. Love it!

I use this with my Mary Kay face brush and I love the way it deep cleans my face. Even using it without the brush, it makes my face feel fresh and very clean. I never have to worry about breaking out.

Great for the face. I swear A LOT so I love applying this when I wash my face as soon as I get home. It smells splendid and is greatly priced. It goes gentle with my skin and I definitely recommend it!

I use this in combination with the Drying Lotion to keep breakouts at bay. I use it a couple times a week in the shower and it is not too drying. My local Ulta carries it

I've been using this product as directed, 3 times per week, for several months now. Honestly, I have seen no change in my skin. For the price, and reviews I had read, I had high hopes. Alas, my skin has not been any more clear.

I love this product, it gently but effectively helps exfoliate the skin without leaving you feeling dry! I only have the trial size, which has almost lasted me a month!! The price point for a large bottle is more than worth it and I will definitely be buying it soon!
