This product seriously changed my skin game!! I originally purchased this years ago, but didn't use it consistently so it ended up sitting in a drawer and I saw no change. A couple of weeks ago, my skin was in a terrible place and I found this again, desperate to try anything to fix my skin. I committed to using it as directed, twice a week as my skin is on the drier side. I can't say enough about this cleanser. My breakouts have decreased dramatically, to the point where I went from having bad hormonal acne on my chin to now where I have no active breakouts, just red marks left from old breakouts. This cleanser has helped the texture of skin, getting rid of little bumps so that my skin looks and feels smoother and tighter. I can also see it slowly working to fade hyperpigmentation and dark spots. My skin will be looking dull and gross, but once I use this I can instantly tell the next day. Overall, I've been happy with the state of my skin every since I started using this again about 2-3 months ago. My only advice is to follow the instructions and only use it 2-3 times a week! You'll see results instantly from 1-2 uses, but your skin can't handle is more than 3 times a week.

Review for: Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser more...
I just started using this because I changed my skin care routine because now I don’t really have any acne to take care for and I just need to get rid of the hyper pigmentation left from the pimples (my dermatologist told me they weren’t acne scars). I read that this helped with getting rid of hyper pigmentation because it gets rid of dead skin. I normally have oily skin and this works well with that. I had dry skin for a couple of day and I used this to get rid of the dead skin and it helped a lot. It stings my eyes so I keep them closed while using this on my face. I do recommend this to any skin type because it worked well for my oily and dry skin.

This cleanser doesn't have the greatest smell, but it's not bad either. I was pleasantly surprised by how well this worked. It removed leftover makeup quite well, and also made my skin tingle slightly. I assume that's because the cleanser was doing its job and dissolving the dead skin. I paired this cleanser with the glycolic toner, and it also gave my skin a tingly feeling. Since this is so powerful, it is recommended you only use this twice a week.

Review for: Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser more...
This cleanser is great! At first I was using it twice a day but is was way too harsh for my skin. I reduced it to once a day and it is fantastic. It is strong enough to give me a good clean, but gentle enough for my eczema. After removing my makeup at night, using this leaves my face clean and hips prevent breakouts

I just recently started using this in my skincare routine. So far, so good! My skin is dry and I feel like this product helps remove the dead skins. The smell is nice too! I would definitely purchase again. I bought this at Ulta. It was a good price! I think I paid $16. I don’t use it daily, so it’s lasting me :)

This has helped resurface my skin gently! It's a great price point as well. The only gripe I have about this is that it is very drying on the skin since it is foaming. I use it twice a week to decongest my skin, but since it foams up a lot, it strips my skin of the natural oils and moisture so I wish they made a non foaming version. You only need the smallest amount of this to rub between your hands to foam and then that is enough to cover your whole face. Careful not to get it into your eyes!! If you use this product, I highly recommend you also use very moisturizing toners, serums, and creams afterwards.

The exfoliating cleanser should be used 2-3 times a week however I use it about 3-4 times a week.  I HIGHLY recommend this cleanser to anyone who is looking to rebuild and retexturize their skin! The product does show results in a matter of 2-3 uses but it does strip away natural oils so it is important to use a moisturizer or oil. This has definitely made a difference in evening out my skin tone and getting rid of stubborn marks. It’s great at getting rid of clogged pores, whiteheads/blackheads and preventing break outs. I also love using the Facial Spray after using this and a moisturizer!!

While I would not recommend this product for all skin types, it’s amazing! (Not recommended for sensitive, rosacea, inflamed, post peel) I would not use this daily, but 2-3 times a week as it is rather active. Mario Badescu is a great product line overall that has stood the test of time. It’s a great value, as the focus is on the product, not the packaging or advertising. I’ve used many of the products over the years and have always had great results.Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser
