REVIEW: Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel


I tried the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion, LOVED IT– now I’m back for more.  I’m at a point in my skincare regime that I need all the Alpha Hydroxy Acids I can get.  For the past month I’ve been using Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel, so let’s take a look:

It successfully de-gunks my skin and makes me a happy girl.  Not a long list of ingredients, however it’s effective yet mild at the same time.  My face doesn’t feel tight after cleansing and I’m not getting dry from it, so right there it’s earning stars.  It’s got a fresh scent and the combo of fruit acids from papaya and grapefruit are hardworking AHAs.  Enzyme Cleansing Gel doesn’t foam at all, so for those girlies that don’t feel clean without suds you’re out of luck with this one.  It will take off makeup, just be sure not to get it in your eyes like me.  I was doing the Ouchie-dance in the shower the other day!  At only $12 for 8oz., this is an awesome deal.  Both the hubby and I have been using this for a month and we still have a little under half a bottle left.  Like I said in my Drying Lotion review, their website is awesome at answering your skincare questions and their customer service is great.  Good stuff.
