I bought this product to use as an every other day exfoliating cleanser in addition to my "regular" cleanser. I love it!! My skin is combination, not acne prone but I do get the occasional cystic pimple here & there. Since using this cleanser, my skin looks & feels so much better and smoothr. Also, I've not had a real "breakout" since using it. To me, for the price point, this product is 100% worth buying on the regular - it does for my skin what it claims to do.

I love using this cleanser 2-3 times a week, it keeps my acne in check. I alternate this with a milder face wash on the days I don't use it. I like to use a micellar water for my 1st cleanse then use this (or something milder so my skin doesn't dry out) after I use MB Glycolic Toner, an essence, my serums and lastly a good moisturizer. I know it seems like a lot but my skin has never looked better!!! I didn't Need to do allll of this in my 20's but now that I'm 33 skin care is a major priority! Plus I enjoy my little nightly pamper routine!

This facial cleanser is great for my oily/acne prone skin. It is a bit stronger than any other Mario Badescu facial cleansers so you are only supposed to use it about 2-3 a week (for oily skin, 1-2 times a week for normal/dry skin). But it cleans deep down in my pores and leaves my skin feeling very smooth and refreshed. I always follow up with the lotion/toner combo.

Great cleanser. I definitely notice a difference if I stop using it for too long - my skin seems to get a bit clogged up. This is great because it isn’t too drying but keep my skin clean and clear.

Very good cleanser, it did cause some irritation around cheeks and chin. Had to use every other day and moisturize well. I changed to glycolic toner instead of wash and has been better for my skin.

this cleanser is my morning cleanser to make sure my skin looks and feels nice before i apply moisturizer and then all my primers and makeup. i really do like this cleanser, it claims to soothe skin and i find that to be true because after rinsing it off and drying my face, my skin never feels tight or dry. it looks like my skin is polished and clean. i have extremely problematic skin so i tend to use this every day or every other day but you should probably just do what is recommended haha.

This has been a godsend. My skin is really dry and I suffer from occasional flakiness, especially around my nose. People always ask how my skin looks so glowy, it's because I exfoliate! I use the glycolic foaming cleanser twice a week to compliment my skincare regimen and Glossier's milky jelly on the other days.

It's my second week using it and i can see the results already. My face is way more clearer and so far, I hadn't had those painful pimples. It makes my skin feel completely naked and free of dirt and makeup! The dispensary makes it easy to use and convenient. I use it twice a week and I might just amp it up an extra day for this week due to more upcoming events. (More make up days!)

I purchased this online from Ulta its a great size for the price you do not use it everyday only 3 times weekly per directions. I have used this cleanser a total of 3 times and I have noticed marked improvements in my skin, My complexion is brighter I have mild acne scars that have faded! Its not a over night miracle worker but with time Im confident the cleanser will clear my skin up,
