Pleasantly Surprised

When I received this cleanser I also got a sample that I thought was an exfoliating cream. So I put it on my face and went to bed. Well, turns out it was a self tanner (duh!) and I woke up orange. I didn't know what to do so I put this cleanser on and let it sit for about 3 minutes and wiped it off with a wash cloth. I was amazed by how much of the tanner it took off. I did that again that night and the next morning and the tanner was gone and my skin looked great. Now I use this cleanser in the shower the same way every morning and I can't believe the results.When I read the reviews for this I thought "seriously people? it's just a cleanser", so I wasn't expecting much. I am SO happy (and shocked) with the results. I would've described my skin before as "congested, sundamaged, acne-prone." It is much clearer and smoother now.

Best Cleanser

5

I purchased this cleanser after another cleanser I was using was not available for purchase by the public (only distributed by a Physician now) and after another product made my sensitive skin break out in a rash. This cleanser cleared my skin immediately. I was SO impressed with the results! I can't believe it worked so fast. I was also VERY pleased to know that this brand does not test on animals. I am hooked on Jan Marini products and will keep this as my go to skin regimen. I can't wait to try other products!

Staple! Milia Control at it's Finest!

5

Recommended to me by my aesthetician a couple years ago and has been a staple in my regimen since then. If I'm ever out of it and don't use it for a week or so I can immediately tell a difference in my skin. It has help control the problem I have had with milia since being a teenager. You will see a difference in the first to weeks in the reduction of milia.Tip: Leave it on your face for 3-5 minutes before you rinse.

Love

I have been using this product for over 4 months now. Jan Marini products are the first products that have ever left me completely content and happy about a purchase. I have struggled with moderate acne since I was 14 years old. I have been on a continuous search for a product line that really makes a difference. Needless to say I think I have found it. (knocking on would as we speak) Now, back to this product. Once I have removed my makeup with a mild gel cleanser, I dry my face and then proceed to apply this Bioglycolic cleanser and I let it sit for approx. 3 minutes. Then I rinse, spot treating with Yon Ka, and then apply the Bioglycolic Bioclear Cream. I broke out for the first 3 weeks and decided to stick with it, finally my face started to clear up and has been almost completely clear with the occasional blemish. (Nothing like before). Also my skin is no longer dry and I can finally apply makeup without having to spend 40 minutes using tweezers to remove flaky skin. I hope it continues to work wonders and am thrilled to have finally found a product like that make me happy.

Overpriced Cetaphil like Cleanser

1

I bought this cleanser because of the amazing write-up, but I am not very happy with it. First of all, it contains paraben, something I have a sensitivity to, also it's a little too gentle. It does not remove eye make-up. It has a very similar consistency to cetaphil, and no smell. My face feels exactly the same after I use cetaphil, but I can buy that for 1/3 of the price at my local CVS. Would not reccomend.

Drying

2

I had semi-dry skin to begin with from my dry heating system. It did slough off the top layer of my skin, but also created more flakes after. I noticed that it did create a smoother palate and pores were less clogged immediately. Perhaps if I had given it a longer trial period, the drying effects might have reversed, but my skin was too dry to persist. Perhaps one needs to go through an AWFUL period before one gets better. Unfortunately, I just couldn't wait...

This is the Best Cleanser

5

I have suffered with acne my whole life. I have always had "gunk" build up around my nose. This is the one and only cleanser I have used in 40 years of using everything that keeps the gunk build up away. It is totally amazing. It has really cleared up my chin area, too. It can sting when you first use it and I am used to glycolic acid. Just keep using it or cut back to one time a day until your skin gets used to it. All of Jan Marini products are fantastic.

Can't live without it!

5

I suffer from mild adult acne, and Jan Marini products have changed my life (sounds clich, but it is true). This cleanser is amazingly gentle while still managing to work wonders. I have been using Jan Marini products for over five years, and have strayed various times to find cheaper alternatives. But, within two weeks I am always back! This cleanser works really well with the bioclear lotion applied after.

Eliminates acne

5

Great daily use glycolic wash!!! I use this every night after removing make up. If I don't use it, my skin will inevitably break out. It is amazingly effective at clearing blemishes and leaving me with a fresh glow. Barely there light pleasant scent, and a bottle lasts a long time. Its a powerful yet gentle product.

Effective, yet gentle exfoliator

5

Of all the products I have used in the Jan Marini line, this is by far my favorite. It gently removes dead surface cells, leaving skin with a smooth, shining glow. Considering how long the container lasts, it is well worth it. You won't be disappointed!!! Believe me!

The best thing EVER

5

WOW I would not believe this if it did not happen to me. I am 34 and have recently had a change in my skin. I have always had some issues with acne but recently have felt very oily and it's like the texture of my skin changed and I had tons and tons of little zits on my forehead. I was having break-outs on my face too. I literately used this the night I got it and by the next morning I could tell the bumps/zits on my forehead were clearing up. It has now been 3 days and my skin is AMAZING! It is clearing up, less oily and seems to glow. I would highly recommend this

BEST CLEANSER!

5

Ive tried many cleansers in the past and nothing compares to this miracle cleanser! I would highly recommend it for problem skin (oily/breakouts/blackheads). It eliminates blackheads and helps to shrink pore size. Great value lasts me about 4-5 months!

Leaves my skin glowy

5

My skin started breaking out around March this year, I was desperate to find something that would help but something that would not be harsh on my dry skin. I decided to order some Jan Marini products and I must say I am very impressed. I love this product, I use it once a day, Sometimes I let it sit on my skin for a few minutes before I rinse to get rid of any flakes I have. This has helped my skin so much and now I have a nice glow. The products are a little expensive but well worth it.

You Get What You Pay For

I have sensitive/oily/combination skin. Accordingly, I've had a hard time finding a product that worked for me. This cleanser has really changed my skin for the better. I've used it for about 2 months, and I've seen fewer breakouts, smaller pores, and more even texture/tone. It is expensive, but it is still worth it because my skin has never looked better. I would recommend this highly over other expensive brands like LaRoche Posay that I've tried without positive results.

I Love Jan Marini

5

Of all the skin care products I have tried and I have tried many It has come to me a such a welcomed surprise that Jan Marini Skin Care is hands down the Best Skin Care that I have ever used. I was in search of a lip cream and after trying a few I came across Jan Marini C ESTA Lips. I fell so in love with it that I wanted to venture out into the line to see how well her other products worked. Being the product junkie that I am always in search of the newest and greatest I have experienced breakouts with the most expensive most advertised and well touted skincare. In fact I had a little problem that I had been fighting for months on my forehead and the left side of my jaw line that I had given up on. At Jans suggestion I started using Jan Marinis BioGlycolic facial cleanser, BioGlycolic Bioclear facial lotion, Age Intervention Peptide Extreme facial serum with the Age Intervention Regeneration Booster and the Age Intervention Eye Cream during the day under my make up in that order. With in 1 day the problem that I was experiencing on my jaw line flattened out and within one week it became shockingly invisible and has not returned in the 2 months that I have been using these products! As well my forehead has not had one breakout. At night I top off the above regimen with Jans Transformation Face Cream. In the morning my skin feels hydrated as well it has become noticeably toned and firmer. I keep the C ESTA Lips in my purse and my make up bag.. I am completely addicted to it! It is decadently creamy not greasy. It is the perfect lipstick and lipgloss base or as an anytime hydrator. It smoothes and plumps up fine lines. It noticeably improves your lip area reversing the signs of time!

Excellent buy!!

5

I live in Asia at the moment, and had to trouble my relative to bring it back for me as this item cannot be shipped out of the US. But this product is worth the wait! I have cystic and adult acne for 20 years, and I have tried many many AHA, retinol, glycolic and fruit enzyme over-the-counter or Dr's products. Ususally, I can't use all the exfloliating products as they are too harsh for my super sensitive and oily skin. But this wonderful cleanser does it for me! It didn't make me sensitized and it unclogs my pores within a week. I can feel the dead skin cells rubbing off my skin when I apply my foundation within 3-4 days. Initially, it did bring out some of the white and black heads to the surface, but all these cleared up amazingly within the next 3 days. You just gotta follow its instructions and be patient. Thank you Jan Marini and Skinstore!

Excellent Cleanser

5

I have been using Jan Marini for many years (well over 7), and I have been very pleased with it. I get many compliments on my oily skin, which is prone to large pores and blemishes. When I fail to use it (because it doens't travel well, I have another cleanser I use when traveling), I notice the difference immediately. The only thing I'd change is the packaging, so that it has another type of dispenser other than a pump bottle. Other than that, my skin is wonderful, and the results, after a few months of use, are sustaining. I love it...!

I have always had frustrating skin, breakouts, patches, and I mean painful acne. I started using this cleanser and felt my skin was getting a fresh start after the first time I used it. If only they had something organic in thier line I would say this is the best stuff out there.

The absolute best

5

I don't usually feel compelled to write reviews but this product is amazing! I have been using it for over 6 months and my skin has never looked better. It has lessened my blackheads and it clears up any skin problems instantly. I use this in conjunction with the transformation cream. You only need a pea sized amount so the products last a long time. Jan Marini products are incredible-they'll become your must have in your skin care regimen!

Lovin this

I'm a product junkie. This is a great cleanser, not only does it wash all my makeup off, It has really made my skin better. I have always had a flawless complexion until my mid 20's. Not sure what happened, but I've been struggling with dry patches, acne prone, scarring, pigmented skin for the last 5 years, and now wahlah!!! This stuff has really worked wonders.. and fast! I use lots of Jan Marini products now and have fallen in love with them all and they've produced rapid results. You won't be disappointed!! Buy this brand. I'm sold! Wish I'd tried it sooner.

This product keeps my skin feeling and looking great. My skin looks like it glows and some people even ask me if I have makeup on because of it. A little bit of this product lasts a long time so you're getting a great value for this product. I'd pay more if it was required because this product is worth every penny.

After a bad bout with a "breakout" a facialist suggesting switching to this cleanser - it's simply amazing - the breakouts stopped, my face is totally smooth and clear, and the "after pimples" are healing really quickly. I can't believe I ever used anything but this!

Your Pores Will Thank You!

5

I have hypersensitive skin with a very oily, problematic t-zone. This product did not irritate my skin at all or cause any redness or stinging. I initially thought the glycolic acid would be harsh and irritating, but this has proved to be one of the most gentle cleansers I have ever tried. It did cause some minor breakouts in the first few weeks, but my skin balanced out after that. Makes pores look tiny! I am using this in conjuction with the Bioclear Lotion. Overall, this cleanser is very effective and leaves the skin with a nice, healthy glow.

what is all the fuss about?

I was so looking forward to trying this cleanser; the line seems to have so much research and prestige behind it. I have very oily skin; since 13, I'm now 52. This cleanser was very dissappointing. It didn't perform like a good glycolic cleanser; i.e., MD Forte. It left my skin tight, dry. If that wasn't bad enough; it smells terrible. Also, what's with the price withholding of this line? This product is laughably mediocre and gets treated like it's a professional quality that you need a doctors clearance! P-Lease!

This cleanser is absolutely wonderful for acne prone skin! I have used it for a few months and I wont use anything else now. I recently ran out and didnt have it and started to break out again almost immediately! I am 33 years old and prone to breakouts. I have combination skin. I use this in combination with the Bioclear Cream. They both work great. For only $20 it last a long time and works great. I've used Proactiv in the past and thought that worked, but it doesnt treat your skin as well as this does. I'll continue using this from now on.

Great Cleanser for Acne Prone Skin

5

I have suffered with mild acne since my teenage years and am in my mid-thirties. This is the first cleanser that really smoothed out my complexion after about 8 weeks of use. I use it in combination with the Bioclear Lotion and use the non-glycolic cleanser to remove my makeup. I was using Proactiv but noticed it stopped working after using it for a year. I switch to Jan Marini at the suggestion of an esthetician that I went to for a facial. I didn't think I would like a cleanser that is used on dry skin but it leaves your skin feeling clean and soft. It tingles a bit at first, but you know its working! I cleanse my face and let it remain on my skin for a minute or two to let the glycolic acid work on my skin. My skin broke out a little in the first week or two of use but stuck with because I figured it was working since my pores were coming unclogged. After three weeks of use, my skin cleared right up! Great product! I would definitely recommend using with the Bioclear Lotion, you will get better results than using the cleanser alone.

This is a truly great cleanser that prepares the skin for treatment, evens out skin tone, and reduces pore size. You need to follow the instructions on this site on how to use it, thats very important. Also, work your way up to using it every day, because its strong stuff. This combined with the bioclear cream and transformation cream is the best combination of products I've found for my sensitive, break out prone skin.

keep using it works!

5

I read some of the coments on this product and agree with most. I found when I started this product it did the same to my skin, it really stung and actually made me break out more so I stopped using it. I talked to the doctor that told me to use it and she said keep using it that's how this product works and boy was she right! I started it again after 1 month and noticed a big difference this time around. The stinging is gone and so are my breakouts. She told me this is not to be used as a makeup remover though and she recommended the non gylcolic cleanser for makeup removal. So I use this in the morning and the non-glycolic to take off makeup in the evening. My skin has taken a huge turn for the better!!!!!

I have been using the jan marini range for nearly a year now and it has dramatically improved my skin. Although this cleanser doesnt foam up i find it cleans my skin well, removes dead skin cells and leaves it feeling soft and non irritated. I find the cleanser doesnt clean off heavy make-up though so perhaps an alternative should be sought when wearing this.

Harsh and did not clean very well.

1

I was referred to a few Jan Marini products. I had acne and I needed a solution for it. I bought the Bioglycolic Facial Cleanser not knowing it was soap free. I immediatly learned that the facial cleanser did not help in removing oil or makeup from the skin. I was told to rub the cleanser into the skin without water because water would dilute its cleansing stregnth. The cleanser began to sting my skin causing it to dry, flake, and become itchy. I then tried it with water and that just seemed to wash off like diluted lotion. Even after going through all that, the cleanser just did not seem to do anything positive for my skin. I personally did not like cleanser because it did not lather up. It reminded me of a harsh lotion. There was no way to tell if the cleanser was actually cleaning the until I wiped my face off on a white towl and noticed the makeup which was left behind. The cleanser was harsh on my skin and I DON'T even have sensitive skin.
