I have been using this cleanser for a couple of weeks and I am very impressed with it. Like most women, I have tried everything on the market. This one is fantastic! It cleans, unclogs, gets rid of dead skin cells all without drying out your skin. You can tell after the first use. Your skin will be glowing and not tight at all. I highly recommend.

This is great esepcially with a Clarisonic brush!
I have been using this cleanser for the past few days and really see a difference in my skin. I had a bout of hormonal acne sensitivity to all supplemental estrogen which is now gone but it left behind hyperpigmentation from the acne. Using this cleanser with my clarisonic brush really made a noticable difference in the hyperpigmentation. In fact, within three days, the marks were noticably lighter. I also love that the cleanser is non-foaming... which is definitely a necessity when using the clarisonic. Great product and it smells really nice too!

I started using Mario Bedecscu products completely by accident. I had been searching for new skin care for a while - I was diagnosed with liver disease and had some pretty severe melasma, breakouts and other issues due to poor liver function. My skin looked terrible and I was so discouraged, thinking it would never improve. I was searching online for natural skincare one evening, found the Mario website and saw their products for Melasma. I gave it a try and was amazed. I started seeing significant improvement in my skin within the very first week. The tone and texture improved dramatically and the melasma began to lighten. Over a period of about two months, my skin went from drab, splotchy and scarred to looking smooth, bright and healthy again! I use the enzyme cleansing gel in conjuction with the grapefruit toner and the oil free moisturizer, which I trade off to the ceremide moisturizer three days a week. I absolutely love these products. They are reasonably priced, they are natural and not animal tested, and above all, THEY WORK! I will be a lifetime customer.

I was very happily using the Seaweed Cleanser. I received a sample of this and love it. I have very red, sensitive skin and immediately noticed a difference. My face was less red and smoother. The first day I used it someone commented how nice my skin looked.
Juan C. | Saturday, January 07, 2012 | 00
This cleanser works well on my oily skin, it leaves my skin soft and clean, skin doesnt feel tight or dry like some other oily skin cleansers do.
Christina L. | Monday, January 02, 2012 | MS
I started using Mario Badescu a few months ago when my face starting breaking out with these little tiny bumps on my forehead : not acne, just bumps, so weird, anyway, my brother recommended me to try their seaweed cleansing lotion, which I LOVE also. A small 2 Oz. bottle of enzyme cleansing gel came with it, and it lasted for like a whole week and a half. About a week ago I purchased a clarisonic mia for christmas and bout a 16 oz. bottle of this for only 20 bucks!! I love it so much, it works so perfectly with my mia. : Bottom line: definitely recommended, and the seaweed cleansing lotion too :

I have dealt with acne in every form for as long as I can remember. I have used over the counter, department store and prescription items which either did nothing or irritated and made my skin raw. Although this is not categorized as specificially treating acne, now that I am 40 and dealing with cystic acne around my chin and neck I need something that worked but did not overdry my more than teenage mature skin. This is amazing! It smells incredible, removes all traces of makeup, rinses clean withou residue, and now with a consistent usage of about 3 months...my skin is completely clear. A Miracle Worker! I will NEVER be with this...actually, truth be told, I will always have one in reserve too!!!
Paula S. | Wednesday, May 18, 2011 | WA
I use this every day and it certainly cleans and leaves my face feeling hydrated with no film. It is so gentle and lasts.
Sue G. | Thursday, May 12, 2011 | CA
One of the best cleansers I have used in years. Smells great, non-irritating, non-drying. Love love love this product.
Corrie H. | Friday, March 11, 2011 | MA
This is a great cleanser. Cleans off all of my makeup and leaves me skin feeling clean, refreshed and soft, never dry or tight. It also smells great - fresh and clean.
Stella S. | Wednesday, March 02, 2011 | CA
This cleanser got rid of new acne and blackheads. Its gentle and made my skin sooo soft! Amazing stuff. Lasts long too!
Joan V. | Friday, June 18, 2010 | FL
I have always had issues with cleansers dryng my skin, and actually making the acne on my cheeks worse. I have been using this for about a month along with the drying mask, and the whitening mask to ligthen exsisting spots and my skin is alot better! These products are amazing! The cleanser leaves my skin clean, hydrated, and smooth. I will never us e anything else!
Melinda F. | Monday, February 15, 2010 | PA
I use ths face wash everyday but 2 days I use the Glycolic foaming cleanser, This stuff is great has made a huge difference in my face, never break out and makes my face super smooth! Love MB THANK YOU!
Leigh H. | Sunday, September 13, 2009 | VA
The Most AMAZING Cleanser!!!
I love this cleanser! It makes a huge difference in my daily cleansing routine. I use the Glycolic Acid Cleanser twice per week, and this cleanser on the off days, and I simply love it. I have noticed a dramatic difference in the way that my skin feels after washing with it. I have also noticed a lot less blackheads on my nose and chin. These suite of products are amazing! I have tried everything, and I am hooked on Mario!!!
Heather P. | Tuesday, May 05, 2009 | CT
I have never been able to find a facial cleanser that i love until now. It cleans my face and doesn't make me break out!!!
Audrey U. | Saturday, February 07, 2009 | DE
the BEST for acneprone skin!
i was using the acne control kit, and ran out of the special cucumber lotion. i also could no longer use my acne facial cleanser, as i was going to begin doxycycline and a twice daily 2.5% benzoyl peroxide treatment, and didn't want to dry out my skin with the salicylic acid. so i tried two of three random samples i got free from that one special offer, and that was the enzyme cleansing gel and the seaweed cleansing lotion.
THEY WORK GREAT TOGETHER!
i love them so much. my skin is soft, smooth, clean, my pores aren't as clogged...i'm convinced this will keep my acne at bay even better!
also, my mom got a free supersized sample of the enzyme cleansing gel!
so i have 4 oz. of the enzyme cleansing gel and 2 oz. of the seaweed cleansing lotion...free! it will be a while before i purchase them, and i'll never use anything ever again!
Crystal D. | Friday, December 26, 2008 | PA
You will not be disappointed...
okay, now I have good skin, but I have a lot of trouble with cleansers, etc. and with them breaking me out, so I needed something to maintain my skin and, if I get any, get rid of my pimples A.S.A.P. So I started using MB and got this cleanser as a sample and immediately fell in love with it. It's the best cleanser I have ever used! But I didn't buy it right away because I had other cleansers to use up first. So, not having it for a while, I recently got about 3 or 4 pimples X And so I got this for Christmas and I used it again, it was amazing!! I freaqqin LoVE this stuff!!! It works best with the Whitening Mask, Cucumber Cleansing Lotion and Honey Moisturizer.. Happy Buying :>

The Best Cleanser
I was using the Acne Facial Cleanser for several months but after discovering the Enzyme Cleansing Gel I'll never use anything else. It has cleared up my problematic, sensitive, and combination skin and evened out my skin tone. It smells great and has very rich creamy texture.
Stefanie U. | Monday, October 13, 2008 | PA
I had used Proactiv for years which worked great until last year. I felt like I was back in highschool again with my face full of pimples.I work with a girl who is an esthetician on the side and she had told me about a couple different products, which all made my skin even worse. She then mentioned Mario Badescu and showed me the site. The Enzyme Cleanser has done wonders!!!! I've been using the Cucumber Cleansing Lotion after washing my face with the gel and my skin is spotless!! No more black heads, no more big painful red bumps, no white heads. I am in love!! Thank you so much!
Sarah E. | Sunday, October 12, 2008 | AL
I recently began experiencing adult-onset acne and have tried many different cleansers. I have finally hit on a winner with the Enzyme Cleansing Gel. It's a great texture and smells fresh and leaves my skin clean without feeling tight or flaky, or oily. I have even gotten my husband into using it!
Cynthia G. | Monday, September 29, 2008 | CT
I have been using this cleanser for about a month now and i really love it!!
it feels like a moisturizer and there aren't any grains that are harsh on my skin.
it leaves my skin silky and smooth

I'm A "Mario Girl" Now!
I was a so called "Philosophy Girl" for the past four years and only used Philosophy skin products until they started supersizing products and leading customers to believe they were getting a "great value" for the price, but what they did was dilute or change ingredients. I had used some Mario Badescu products in the past but now after trying this Enzyme Cleansing Gel I am now officially a "Mario Girl"! They also sent samples of other products which I LOVED and had to order them and I'm still ordering more products from Mario to replace my Philosophy collection. Mario Badescu products are awesome and don't have a long list of ingredients that you can't pronounce. Please Mario, don't ever change your products like some other companies do and I promise to be a "Mario Girl" forever!
nia b. | Saturday, September 06, 2008 | NM
All of my life I have battled clogged ugly blackheads on my nose. Nothing would get rid of them until I tried Maria Badescu products-especially the Enzyme Cleansing Gel. It is absolutly a miracle! My face and skin have never been better and my nose is virtually blackhead and whitehead free. Amazing product and awesome price!
Emily S. | Saturday, August 30, 2008 | FL
Enzyme Cleansing Gel
I have been using this face wash for over 2 years now. I have dry, acneic skin and this cleanser removes my make up and keeps my skin feeling clean throughout the day. I use this along with the Special Cucumber Lotin and my skin has never looked better.
Thanks Mario Badescu!!!
Sandra M. | Friday, August 29, 2008 | KY
I received this as a sample and thought it would surely irritate my sensitive skin. Not so! I'm definitely ordering a full size of this fabulous cleanser.

Alison T. | Wednesday, August 27, 2008 | FL
This is the perfect face wash. Everything tends to make my skin break out but this cleanser never has! I love the minimal amount of ingrediants and the feel and smell of this cleanser is refreshing and awakening. I get so many compliments on my skin and I reccomend this product to every one I know. The price is incredible and I will never try another cleanser again. I love this stuff!
Carrie S. | Monday, June 23, 2008 | MO
I thought for sure this would irritate my sensitive skin, but thankfully it didn't-it just made my skin feel great! I will definitely order a full size of this.
Nancy C. | Thursday, May 29, 2008 | CA
I've used this product for over 2 weeks now and I must say its the best I've used on my combo sensitive skin. It truly does what it says. Removes all makeup and never dries out my face which is so important for me. Leaves my skin so soft and fresh...LOVE IT!
Kelly O. | Monday, May 26, 2008 | CA
Believe the hype...
This product was recommended for me after I filled out the online questionnaire. I couldn't believe the amazing reviews and could hardly wait to try this cleanser. I was not disappointed. It smells heavenly and feels like velvet on your face. I look forward to seeing continued improvements in my skin!
Tyeast B. | Friday, May 09, 2008 | NJ
Like to use this product when giving myself a facial once a week.
I have sensitive/combination skin with occasional breakouts.
This cleanser deeply cleans my skin & without the irritation. After using this product, my skin feels new and fresh.
Also, I regularly us the Gycolic Foaming Cleanser as well as the Seaweed Cleansing Soap (when I want to wash my face w/ a bit more exfoliation).
Jill S. | Thursday, March 13, 2008 | OK
I just started using this stuff about a week and a half ago and i absolutely love this stuff.I have very combination skin with breakouts always on my chin,and some dryness.I love the way it feels and i love the way it rinses clean.I was a little skeptical about the scent because my skin is also sensitive and usually reacts badly to scented products.Well not this time, i realized this is a natural scent and not added fragrance.Its great and my skin is feeling and looking better already.I also purchased the glycolic wash and the collagen moisturizer.I can't wait to try all the products!
Sandra M. | Thursday, March 13, 2008 | ME
I am a redhead with very sensitive skin. I have the occasional blemish every few months, however this cleanser greatly helps reduce the number and severity. This is by far the best cleanser I have ever used. It only takes a small amount to gently and thoroughly cleanse my skin... and my skin is not left feeling tight or dry. I would recommend this product to anyone.
Mallory M. | Tuesday, March 04, 2008 | KY
i definitely think this cleanser has helped with my areas of dry flaky skin. i've tried tons of exfoliators and stuff to try to get rid of them but just within a week this cleanser has nearly taken care of it. i also have acne prone skin and it doesn't bother me or cause breakouts; i can't say however that it has cleared up my acne, but like i said, it has only been a week. overall i love it. i just ordered the glycolic foaming cleanser and im excited to try alternating the two, hopefully this will further exfoliate and help cut down on breakouts
Nick F. | Monday, March 03, 2008 | WA
Never use soap again!!
I have been back and forth between facial cleansers, and I ALWAYS come back and now will never stray again! My face feels fresh, clean and I get compliments all the time. Thank you Mario!
Sarah R. | Saturday, March 01, 2008 | MA
This Stuff Is Magic!
I was having small bumps all over my forhead and had tried other products to remove them. While in Nantucket a friend introduced me to the enzyme cleanser. It smells good, doesn't dry out my skin, and my bumps are gone. This product is a "must have."
jessica k. | Friday, November 30, 2007 | CT
I love this cleanser! My skin has never felt so clean or never looked this good. I've been getting tons of compliments and I owe it all to Mario Badescu!!!
Elizabeth S. | Friday, November 09, 2007 | SD
Best everyday cleanser!
This cleanser really cuts through the oil and removes my full face makeup. Its also helps remove all my dead skin cell buildup. I love the scent as well. A must have for oily breakout prone skin! Plus it doesnt dry out your skin what so ever!
Heather M. | Friday, October 19, 2007 | 00
Thank-you Mario Badescu!
I had perfect skin in high school; then I hit 27 and all hell broke loose! I developed cystic acne. I got a sample of this cleanser when I order the Acne Kit (which is absolutely amazing), and after using it for about a week, I started to notice subtle changes in my skin. After about a month of using a regime of MB products, my skin is BETTER than it's ever been. In fact, I get compliments on my skin! :)
Holly B. | Thursday, September 20, 2007 | MD
I have extremely sensitive skin. Past products left my skin feeling tingly clean at the time but generally led to dry skin and red, flaky patches. NO MORE! The Enzyme Cleansing Gel is a wake up call for your face and leaves it rejuvenated all day when followed up with MB's moisturizers.
Rosie G. | Friday, August 24, 2007 | FL
Gentle but VERY Effective
This is the absolute best cleanser. Very gentle. It also has a clean very refreshing scent, nothing strong. I have dry, sensitive, sometimes oily(depending on the season) and also acne prone skin. This is the only cleanser that definitely helps with all. Unlike other products out in the market for acne that tend to dry and irritate my skin this gives my skin balance, clears my acne, has improved my skin texture and tone and gives me a healthy glow. What else can I ask for?
Elisa A. | Friday, August 24, 2007 | 00
We moved to Canada from the Philippines just a month ago and due to climate change my 10-yr. old daughter had a break-out. You sent us samples and it worked in less than a week. The Enzyme cleansing gel together with the strawberry scrub cleared her skin. Thank you very much. She is so happy that she emailed her friends to use your products as well.
Mijoi J. | Thursday, August 23, 2007 | MD
Skeptical to a MB Believer!
When I received this as a sample, I was put off at first by its consistency and lack of foaming bubbles. But I was wrong. This stuff is amazing! My skin cleared up within a day. I'm a believer for life!
Kim R. | Wednesday, August 15, 2007 | NJ
I tried the sample and loved it. I ordered a full size and it is already half gone. I use it every morning and night. Since I started using Mario Badescu products my skin has been the clearest it's ever been and I've tried a lot of different products!
Sarah M. | Friday, August 10, 2007 | 00
At first I didn't think such a gentle, non-foaming cleanser could wash off all the dirt and oil but it does the job wonderfully; it also washes off make-up completely. And I love the soft, clean scent and sparkly color.
Sarah B. | Wednesday, July 18, 2007 | MI
AMAZING PRODUCT- A MUST HAVE
I had cystic acne in high school and it returned in my early 20s. This product has helped with the acne immensely. It has also improved my overall complexion - dare I use the word "radiant?" I never would have before this product. I recently went on a trip abroad and took about a million pictures. My roommate/travelmate constantly commented on how clear and "radiant" my skin looked in every picture. Now that feels good!
Jenna M. | Tuesday, June 05, 2007 | OH
i will never use another cleanser again
i have (i should say had) extreme acne, which did not start until i was in my twenties. i tried dozens of cleansers that either did not help my skin or made it worse. this cleanser cleared up my skin completely in less than a month, and i have not used anything since. if you have acne prone skin, i highly recomend using the enzyme cleanser and following immediately with the healing cream before bed and in the morning before applying moisturizer or make-up.
sabah z. | Wednesday, April 11, 2007 | 00
So far....SOOOOOOO GOOD!!!
I always hadd good skin but recently this year my skin was playing up....badly, from red blotchy irritated skin to pimples and when you've never had a problem with your skin before you get obsessed, like me and try every product under the sun to get it back to normal! I came across the Mario Badescu site and knew this was the range for me, i decided to go for the enzyme cleanser as it was suitable for all skin types, and i didnt know what my skin type was anymore. Anyway i have been using it for 3 months now, and it cleared up my skin wonderfully. Great refreshing smell. My skin is now smooth, clear and radiant. Thanks MB!
Maysie G. | Sunday, April 01, 2007 | TX
Simply perfect cleanser!
This is the absolute best cleanser I have ever used! It's super silky going onto your skin, and it has a very fresh clean smell which is quite refreshing compared to all of the chemical smelling facial products on the market. The best part though is the fact that it gently yet effectively removes all dirt and makeup from your face; it doesn't dry your skin out! My skin LOVES this stuff. Also take a look at the ingredients list, there's not a TON of stuff you have to worry about putting on your face. I love the simplicity of it.
Dawn S. | Saturday, March 17, 2007 | FL
This is a must have!!!
I use many Mario products, I love this one. I use this one at night so my skin can reap the benafits of it with out make-up on. It smells so wonderful and leaves my skin squeaky clean and fresh.
Cristine O. | Tuesday, February 20, 2007 | MA
This is such a wonderful cleanser...smells great...makes your skin feel very fresh...I just love it !!
Anne B. | Wednesday, February 14, 2007 | SC
Tried them all...this is the best!
I have tried every line out there from $10 - $100 and this is, by far, the best cleanser I have ever used. They are a wonderful company and are kind enough to offer samples of all of their suggested products before I purchased them.
maria d. | Thursday, February 01, 2007 | CA
4 seasons perfect cleanser
I moved across country and this cleanser still worked great clean without drying your skin out. i can't use any other thanks for coming out with such a balance product
Shawnah F. | Wednesday, January 17, 2007 | PA
This cleanser is the only cleanser that keeps my skin glowing. Whenever I get the urge to try something new.. I always return to this cleanser to clear me back up and regulate my skin again. You would think I would just learn. I am 100% clear while using this cleanser. I have combo skin and it's perfect all year round.
Cheri O. | Tuesday, January 16, 2007 | WV
This is the only product that seems to keep my chin clear of any breakouts. The ENTIRE time I am using this cleanser, whether it is 1 month or 1 year, I have ZERO pimples. If I forget to reorder in time and have to use anything else, within a week or two the breakouts appear.
I actually love everything about this cleanser. It takes all my makeup off, smells great, has minimal ingredients, not animal tested, rinses clean and inexpensive.
Heather M. | Friday, December 15, 2006 | MO
I have tried many different cleansers to get make-up off without having to wash my face with a wash cloth before, this stuff takes all your make-up off! It is wonderful! I'm hoping too that it will clear up my acne, I have heard that it does though so I am very optimistic! This is a great product! I also use the special cucumber lotion, and buffering lotion. It was recommended to me for my acne problem, and my skin feels great so far! Have been using it for 2 days.
Heather S. | Thursday, November 02, 2006 | NC
I have always had sensitive, acne-prone skin. It goes through stags of being perfect every now and then. This cleanser is so awesome that it works no matter what stage my skin is in! It leaves your skin feeling super clean and yet not dry. I recommend it to all my friends and family!!
Christina M. | Thursday, October 26, 2006 | NY
Now i've hear about mario badescu's products for quite a long time and finally got myself to order some, I was reccomended their enzyme cleansing gel. Let me just say after my first time using it I already felt a difference I've been using it since july (it is now october) and my skin keeps improving day by day. It leavs my skin actually feeling clean and fresh as opposed to other cleansers out on the market. I highly reccomend purchasing this product if you're looking to try out a few things from the mario badescu line. It helps clear my pimples (I don't have serious acne, but I have little pimples on my forehead and chin that seem to be so hard to get rid of and this cleanser help's clear them up!) Def. worth every dollar!
Joy Evangeline B. | Monday, October 23, 2006 | NY
Great all-around cleanser...and makeup remover
I used this product for many years before recently turning to the acne facial wash to address my acne issues. It made my face feel clean and cared for during my periods of breakouts. I am now at the point where I don't feel that I have to wear makeup everyday. When I do wear makeup, I use this product to remove the makeup, dirt, and surface oil and prepare my face for cleansing with the acne facial wash. And, if, after using this cleanser to remove my makeup, I fall asleep without "officially" cleansing my face, I awake with the comfort of knowinig that my face was cleansed because I used this product.
Christine G. | Wednesday, October 11, 2006 | CA
My favorite cleanser!
This is my all-time favorite cleanser! It cleans very well and leaves my skin feeling and smelling great! I haven't had any problems with acne ever since I started using it (I do use it regularly of course).
