I bought this at Fred Segal's when they still carried the Mario Badescu line and now I wish I'd bought more of his products while they were still there! I was looking for an everyday cleanser and trying to decide between this one and something by Kiehl's, which the associate was pushing me towards. He said the Kiehl's one was a good basic cleanser and that the MB one, with the enzymes, might be better to use just in the days before your period (when you're expecting to break out). To his disappointment, I bought the MB one and I've loved it ever since. It's one of those products where, for me at least, I've really noticed a difference in my skin since using it, so I plan on buying another bottle when I run out. Since I've started using ProActiv I only use this cleanser in the morning, but it helps prevent the ProActiv from drying out my skin too much. The smell is yummy too.
I love this cleanser. I received it as a sample and couldnt wait to get the full size in the mail. It has a great fresh scent. Although it doesnt foam, it leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean.Leaves my skin just a tad dry in these harsh winter months, nothing a little moisturizer cant handle. I love MB products the healing cream is top of the line. Will purchase this item again.
I tried a sample of this a few months ago, and I loved it so much, I purchased a full-size bottle when the sample was empty. I use this cleanser and the Aloe Lotion, and my skin has never looked better. It removes my makeup without making my face feel tight or dry. No breakouts or clogged pores, which is usually a problem for me. I love the scent, too. Highly recommend!!
This is a great, deep clensing gel. I normally use Olay daily cleansing cloths, but once a week use this cleanser after my Philosophy scrub. It leaves my skin soft, clean and refreshed. I love the smell too. Will buy again.
Works well, you have to get used to no foaming, but leaves no residue. Been using for over a month and am still happy.
Initially i loved this- for the first week. But then i broke out from it on my forehead. I never break out from products! I stopped using it, and skin returned to normal.
I donated what was left (pretty much all of it) to my friend who has more acne-prone skin than me, and she loved it and wants me to order her more. so, each to their own.
I did not like this cleanser. It made my skin feel tight and uncomfortable.
I am on my second bottle of this cleanser and that's a big plus for me. I usually try something and either toss it or return it. I was sceptical at first since it didn't lather but I go used to that right away. This is the first time that my skin didn't feel tight or get red after using it. I have oily sensitive skin and its hard finding a cleanser for my skin type that doesn't feel like you're peeling away your skin. They recently started carrying this line at Marshall Fields in Chicago and I went a liitle overboard this weekend with cleanser, mask, toner, moisturizer, scrub and eye gel. We'll see what happens but so far I love the line! If it's good enough for Cher and the Sex and the City girls who all look amazing I'm willing to try it!
I am not so impressed by it.
I've been using it for two months on and off.. well.. Only thing I like about this product is smell.
My face feels little greasy(uncleanly feeling), however, there is dryness as well. I have to use another cleaser after using this one,so I don't have to get rid of it.
OMG..this is fantastic!! This is one item you won't be wasting your money on. My skin actually feels clean..I've used other cleansers in the past, where you would have to clean your skin over and over again because it wasn't deep cleaning. This cleanser is gentle, but works like a deep cleanser in which, it takes off all your makeup. It does kinda irritate the areas around your eyes. So I would strongly advise anyone who has sensitive skin to take off eye makeover with an eye maker remover (like Bifacil from Lancome). Overall, this is a great product thats worth it in the long run.
