The feel of your skin after using this product is amazing as it leaves your skin feeling soft and supple, although after that I never really saw results after using this product. It also says it is a foaming cleanser although it has never seemed foam up for me when using it. I will continue using the bottle I already have but probably wouldn't buy again as rather pricey and I have found cheaper brands that's also have the same percentage of glycolic acid as this one and gives better results.

HOLY MOLY - this is AMAZING! I purchased this as I had ran out of my pixi glow tonic and I wanted to try something similar. The product is a gel like consistency but once you rub it in it does go watery. It smells amazing, very herby and natural, which is always a bonus.Once the products rinsed off I rinsed my face with cold water just to close any pores and the results from the cleanser were clear!! Pores and blackheads were gone, and my skin was GLOWING! Definitely a repurchase!

A fantastic product! I have combination skin (more dry in the winter, more oily in the summer) and this product is helping me keep my skin clear without harshly drying it out.

I use this once a week for gentle exfoliation and it definitely leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean afterwards!

The best part: a little bit goes a LONG way! A dime size amount will generously cleanse your entire face. I've had mine for about a year and I likely won't run out for another year!

I use this of an evening 2-3 times a week combined with the glycolic acid toner and have seen amazing results! The price point is good for how long the product will last you. It's gentle on my skin while still being effective, my skin is clear and soft. I am definitely seeing results with this! I'd reccomend to anyone looking to add glycolic acids to their skin care routine.

Currently using this cleanser. It's great for stripping all the dirt off your face. Including makeup. Just make sure you keep your eyes closed and completely wash it away before opening. It burns your eyes. It's also a strong cleanser so I wouldn't recommend using ig everyday if you have sensitive skin.

i'm really shocked that more people aren't talking about this cleanser. on days where i'm not bothered to exfoliate or feel like my skin is a bit too sensitive at the moment, i use this instead of my regular cleanser. it makes my skin feel so clean and helps clear it of impurities

This worked wonders on my skin!! Being oily and sensitive I was worried it would upset my skin, but it was amazing! My skin felt so soft after cleansing and it felt new! The price point for the product is definitely good in my opinion and would definitely recommend this to others!

AMAZING!! this has saved my acne prone skin. It is very drying (as it is a chemical exfoliatior) so good moisturiser is crucial - I was unsure to use it more than every other day, but the skin care consultant in Harvey Nicholls urged me to try. Best thing I've ever done.

One of my favorite cleansers. Bought in the "brightening package" and received the small version which I replaced with the full size after it was finished. All Mario products smell amazing. The cleanser leaves the skin feeling very elastic but also firm- use the brightening toner after for the best, smoothest skin.

this is one of my favs cleansers ever! i only use it at night because of the glycolic acid side effects wich combined with the sun can burn your skin or leave worse dark spots. the next morning i feel my skin brighter and softer and for the price is a very good deal.
