Review: Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner VS Special Cucumber Lotion from Luxola

I was first introduced to Mario Badescu by Luxola on their MY Bloggers meet up in year 2012, you could read the meet up post at here. Mario Badescu first salon was opened in New York over 40 years ago. Mario Badescu Skin Care is well known for their personalized skin care and acne treatment.
This time, I have given Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner and Special Cucumber Lotion a try. Both of them are famous for deep cleansing. I like that Mario Badescu toner/lotion is packed in plastic flip bottle that prevent pop open when travelling.

My review: Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner is recommended for dull, dry and sensitive skin. Even though I have oily combination skin and breakouts often, this toner works for me too.  My acne scarring is fading away and my skin is glowing. It doesn't irritate my skin but be careful to avoid eye area as it once stings my eyes. This toner literally makes my skin glow.

We don’t have a Mario Badescu salon here but we could get the products online from Luxola.
