A good acne cleanser is exfoliating, but won’t rub your skin raw — which is why skin-care devotees swear by this gentle face wash from Mario Badescu for clearing up their skin. It’s sort of a best-of-both-worlds situation in that it’s effective and soothing (thanks to a blend of salicylic acid and calming botanicals). And it’s now 50 percent off at Ulta as part of its ongoing “21 Days of Beauty Steals” sales event — which is an even better deal on an already affordable cleanser.
