Love this to use twice a week in the shower. It works great with steam. I let rub it in and let it sit on my skin for a few minutes. It makes my skin feel really smooth and helped a few of my dark spots fade a little bit.

I have been using this cleanser periodically for a month now and it has helped keep my occasional breakouts down. The price is reasonable. And it doesn’t take a lot of product per application. Only dislike is how it drys my skin out after use, so I make sure to follow with a intense moisturizer after.

This is my favorite cleanser of all time. I have had severe acne scars that would not go away. After using this my skin is finally starting to clear up. I had issues in the beginning as it started to overly dry up my face. Once I figured out the spacing throughout the week of when to use it, the product did wonders. I’d definitely recommend if you’re looking to fade scarring! I would definitely buy this again.

I use this with a non electronic face brush to exfoliate and it works great. I focus it on acne scared areas and have noticed in different occasion that I can almost peel off a healed spot and loom at the darkened skin. I only use this a few times a week and more so when I notice a lot more scaring that I want to reduce. Overall really good to mattify the skin if it's oily and works on dark acne scars.

This cleanser is one of my favorites! It is moderately priced and it is gentle enough on my skin for everyday use. I use it as my night time face wash and there is rarely any dirt or makeup left behind.

This cleaner keeps my skin clear and exfoliated without being too harsh or drying. I have very sensitive skin that rotates between dry and oily if I use the wrong products, and this one is just right.

I got my hands on this cleanser when I was dealing with acne and very oily skin. It made my skin feel super clean and soft after each use. The only downside is that the smell is a little bit strong and also made my eyes sting.

Great to use to treat your skin maybe once or twice a week. I use it when I have pimples popping up around that time of month and it dries them up within a day or 2. Great at keeping your skin smooth but be careful not to use it too often. My skin started stripping when I used it every day and I have oily skin.

This is an okay product for the price. I use it with my clairsonic every couple days but it doesn’t really improve my skin. I wouldn’t buy it again but would try other mario badescu products.

I have all these little bumps on my skin, they're just really clogged pores, and using this wash every other day has nearly cleared them up! I thought I was going to have bumpy, uneven textured skin for forever!

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.
