Kateryna Effective product, very drying. Its mandatory to use moisturizer and serum, or even soft toner with this cleanser

Sadievern I have been using this cleanser by Murad for many years. About a year ago, they changed the formula. It is now seems to be more watery than the version before it, you have to use more of it than before. I think that it's an expensive product as it it, and for them to change the formula so that one needs to use more is not cool. I thought maybe I had a bad batch, so I continued buying the product thinking I would get a tube of the original stuff. After 5 tubes of it, I realize they just changed their formula. The painted front of the tube also continuously sloughs off when the tube is kept in the shower. May not be a big deal to people who do not keep this in their shower, but it is to me. I do not like labels sloughing off of bottles at all. It makes my shower dirty, and I'm constantly rinsing the bottle, but more keeps coming off. I do keep the tube in a dry area of the shower also. The paint coming off the tube coincided with the new, watery formula. So Murad not only cheapened their product, they cheapened their packaging.

I will now start looking for a new product to try, one that doesn't require an excessive amount to work, and one that doesn't keep my shower dirty. Too bad, this use to be a really great product.

BTW, this stuff does not work for my 14 year old son at all. He responds much better to a cleanser with benzoyl peroxide. This stuff did work alright for me. I am a 40 yr old woman with combination skin and acne. This stuff cleared up my acne, but not my hormonal acne. That still flares up monthly.

RifleGirl Alright I will give you my three day review of this product.



Day one: I washed my face twice. I felt a really nice cool/tingly feeling on my skin. After I washed, I used the Murad Acne Toner then the Spot Blemish Treatment. My face was red, and my acne spots (minimal, maybe 5 smaller pimples) were really red. I did not put any lotion on after either washing. I had a few pimples develop after the second washing, which made me skeptical about further use of this product, but I figured I already spent the money, give it a few more days.



Day two: Woke up, found the few pimples I had, came to a head (including the ones that came up after the second washing) and the few that were almost gone the day before, were gone. I washed, toned and used the spot treatment twice. After each wash, my face was still slightly red and itchy. After I used another brand of lotion, the itchy feeling went away. Still had the cooling/tingly feeling, mainly after using the toner.



Day three: Ahhhhh! Light at the end of the tunnel. My face is no longer red when I use these three products. I do not feel itchy even after washing. My pimples are dried up and almost gone.



If you try this product and you don't see results on day one or two, don't give up! It's expensive but so far I feel it is worth the $$.

Marianne I love everything about the Murad Acne Skin Care products except the lousy packaging and the price. I'm allergic to benzoyl peroxide and have had acne for 28 years. So finding this Murad Clarifying Cleanser and acne skin care system was a turning point in my fight for clear skin. Now, after 5 years of use, anyone looking at me would be surprised that I ever battled acne. Consistent use has cleared up my problem skin. I use the cleanser in the morning in the shower just with my hands, then I follow with the Murad Moisturizing Acne Gel, finally I finish with Murad's Skin Perfecting Lotion. I use another brand of eye cream. At night I use a battery powered rotating facial brush with my Murad cleanser and then follow my morning routine. This regimen has cleared up my skin and kept me looking younger than my 40+ years.



The one drawback to these Murad products is that the packaging is really poorly designed and executed for the amount you pay for these products. The container tend to leak or burst when traveling by air. I have to put them in other containers and this is awkward. The cap on the cleanser collects water in the shower unless you tip the tube over and balance it on the tip. In addition,it is difficult to get the last little bit out of the containers for all the products.

LS this is the best acne cleanser I have ever used - the only thing that has worked. My skin is clear and calm like never before, with no new breakouts. Meanwhile it is improving the overall look of my skin and my pores are smaller. It did take medication to get my adult acne (age 30) under control (doxicyclene) but this cleanser has kept my skin clear once I've gone off it. My skin gets less oily in the afternoon now.



I use in conjunction with the Gentle Acne Treatment Gel, and the Skin Perfecting Lotion. A sample of Murad's amazing Skin Perfecting lotion was what turned me onto the brand. Murad is a bit pricey, but a little goes a long way. I use morning and evening, at night removing my makeup with another cleanser followed by this cleanser for one full minute - to ensure acne causing bacteria is killed. The cleanser is actually cooling so it feels really good to wash your face with it - and it feels balanced - not stripped - when I'm done. I follow with the gel then the lotion or one or the other depending on how my skin feels.

Nicole I picked up the Murad acne line including this face wash, the toner, the exfoliating gel, the clay mask, and the lotion. I've been using them for 6 weeks now, and the overall texture of my skin is radiant and clear. I still have a few breakouts from high stress, but I really like this line. The lotion and clay masks are my favorites as they work better than any others I have ever found! However, I think some of the success is due to the fact that Murad does an excellent job with getting you into a routine. Every day and night I cleansed, toned, treated, and hydrated! So, due to the price, I think that if I stuck to a routine using drugstore brands, I could keep my face radiant and clear. I may keep the clay mask though since I wouldn't go through it as quickly.



This wash was gentle and cleaned thoroughly, although it's slightly drying (but it's supposed to be). You must follow with at least a lotion, if not also the toner. I highly recommend this wash if used correctly with other items for a complete regiment.

Empire Girl My usual named brand products were only moderately helpful for my acne. Then at 42, my acne inexplicably became even worse and my skin became even more oily. Murad is one of the few lines that actually contains active ingredients other than the usual benzoyl peroxide and salycic acid so despite the higher price, I decided to try the Murad Acne Kit. My skin cleared within the first three days but then broke out again for another three days and I thought about stopping use. Then it immediately cleared again and has stayed clear since. I am on my third tube of the clarifying cleanser. This is my favorite product in the Murad Acne line. It is a non-drying product and does not cause skin to be extra oily. I would never spend the money on this product if it wasn't effective. It is so effective that I am now buying it for my two daughters.

Brittany I've been using this product for almost 2 years and I LOVE IT. I'm 21 years old and I've always had problems with acne, I would break out on my forehead and all around my chin. Murad's Clarifying Cleanser has cleared my skin by almost 100%. I've never felt better about my skin. I get a bump that comes up every now and then but as long as I was my face daily, day and night, with Murad my face seems to stay clear. The Ulta store near me recently stopped carrying this face wash so for the past 2 weeks I havnt been using it, instead I've been using a drugstore facewash, and i already see my face breaking out again. I know Murad is what has been keeping my sking clear! and the best part is, it has cleared and faded away acne scars I've had on my face for years! I WOULD DEFINATELY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!!! :)

JJ Though I wanted clear skin, I could never seem to stick to a routine that required me to use three different products three times a day... I finally cleared up my acne by using this cleanser once in the morning and once before bed and that was it!! It did not bring about the extreme redness but was twice as effective at clearing up my skin and keeping it clear. I did not have the peeling or extreme drying that other products caused, but this really worked and continues to keep my skin acne free for the last few years!
