Amazing product! I use this multiple times a week and it's great for oily skin. It has helped my breakouts so much and has also helped control my oil. I would recommend using a moisturizer with it, though.

One of the strongest cleansers I have ever used. 3 stars because of its extremely active acne clearing qualities but cannot use it due to how dry it leaves my skin. It doesn’t feel tight immediately after but I see it’s peeling effects for days and days after.

LOVE this foaming cleanser. It’s not too harsh but feels like it’s wiping away all the dirt and rejuvenating my skin. It’s not overly drying too which is great. It foams up easily and a little goes a long way. Great value. Great product.

I bought this cleanser along with my Mia2 and it works wonders. Careful not to get this product in your eyes because it burns! The packaging makes it clear as to what skin concerns it helps. I would recommend this product to everyone

Powerful cleanser! Goes on smooth and fresh but works hard at getting all the dirt and dead skin off! Very effective yet gentle enough for daily use on my skin. Would recommend as an alternative to abrasive exfoliating cleansers.

This stuff is a god sent! No matter how much makeup I put on my face this always leaves me feeling clean and refreshed after a long day/night out!

This cleanser foams nicely on the skin and is also very gentle - it cleanses without stripping your skin of their natural oils. Although it can slightly sting the first few times it is used. I enjoyed this product and would recommend it to others.

I wish this was for everyday use! I use it 2 times a week since I don’t really have oily skin. After every use my skin is soft and smooth and perfect. I wish I could use this cleanser every day

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.
