Hi Ladies!!

I am going to do a review on a skin care product, which everybody raves about all over the world. My mother got me this, as she is a huge fan of Mario Budescu products. Since I have started using it, I thought it would be great to share with you guys how I feel about it.

My Experience with Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser:

This comes in a regular transparent bottle and has a flip nozzle top, which allows a small amount of product to come out at a time. I feel the packaging is really simple but they have paid all their attention to come up with an amazing product. The product itself is almost transparent with a hint of yellowish hue. The consistency is very thin. It has an extremely mild citrusy smell, which you can appreciate only if you take your nose very near to the product which I feel is a good thing.

This lathers up amazingly well. I need only quarter of a coin-sized amount for one use. So, this should last me for a pretty long time.

Coming to its effectiveness, hands down this is the best cleanser I have ever used. I have oily-combination skin and I use this every other day. This takes off every bit of makeup, dirt and everything on your face very easily. I even used my make up remover just to check, and boy, the cotton pad was as clean as ever.

It exfoliates the skin really well and makes it super soft. It controls acne and any break outs effectively. It has improved my skin tone and appearance of blackheads has reduced. My mother got rid of her blemishes upto 80% and she gives all the credits to this. It also prevents new breakouts.
