it helps out a lot with acne but it dries out your skin a little bit. I would recommend using it every other two days and using a lotion after.

      I've used the cleansing cleaner for 8 years and I've added the toner and moisturizer to my regiment and I must admit I never used it before and now I know what I've been missing. With all 3, cleanser, toner and moisturizer, them blemishes I have are beginning to clear up to make my skin, less oily ( I have naturally oily skin) and I feel great about that.

              Comments about Murad Acne Complex Clarifying Toner:

              I really wanted to get the Clarins toner but couldn't afford it at the time. I use the clarifying cleanser from Murad and this stuff is amazing. I have really bad adult acne and I've only been using it for a few days. Nothing else has made my skin clear up so fast. There is a tingly feeling when I put it on but it's hasn't irritated my skin. I actually enjoy the tingly feeling because it feels like it's killing all of the stuff on my face that brings the acne.

                I tend to use this product at night as a toner, rather than a cleansing oil. Using it after my skin care routine helps close my pores and rinses away any dirt and oils that may have been left behind. I would definitely buy this again and will be recommending it to friends and family.

                      A:

                      This toner was designed to help eliminate oil and dirt and to help regulate oil production. It does not contain ingredients that would reduce acne scarring. For this we would recommend Post-Acne Spot Lightening Gel, Item #: 2146523, this helps to fade discoloration caused by acne.
                      You could also try AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser, Item #: 2082342, this well help to speed up cell turnover to get rid of dullness and help minimize darkness. Or Intensive-C Radiance Peel - this is more like a mask that will immediately brighten and help reduce darker pigmentation caused by scarring or sun damage. Item #: 2243807

                      A:

                      This product does contain alcohol. The percentage amount is proprietary to our formula and we cannot give out those details.
                      It does contain witch hazel and menthol which some with sensitive skin can find a bit too astringent.

                      A:

                      Cyctic acne typically needs to be treated with medication as over the counter topical products cannot penetrate that deep into the skin. For this type of acne Dr. Murad always recommends you see a dermatologist.

                      As a toner this product can help control oil and keep pores clean. For something that can help with stubborn acne and keep it from coming back I recommend trying the Acne Starter Kit, http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod10171115. It is a full routine of acne fighting products that will help keep your skin clear and prevent new acne.

                      A:

                      It is always best to err on the side of caution and check with a physician before introducing a new product when you have a concern like rosacea. Acne Clarifying Toner can be beneficial when used sparingly, 1-2 times per week. It is not recommended for use when the skin is having a flareup.

                  • Q:

                    I have sometimes dry skin. For the most part it's normal. It has improved so much more since I've been using my Clarisonic so dryness hasn't been an issue as much lately. But I am looking for a toner to help in clearing my acne. Will this product dry out my skin? I only have occasional breakouts so it's nothing constant. I'm just looking for a toner to add to my skin care routine that won't dry out my skin. Any help or advice on a good toner would be great. I currently use philosophy's purity and hope in a jar as my moisturizer in the morning and benefits total moisture at night. I do like Murad's products so I'm wondering if this would help without drying my skin?

                      This product has astringent properties to help balance skin and tighten pores, but it does not contain any harsh ingredients that would strip skin of its natural moisture. It is formulated with antioxidants vitamin E and grape seed extract to help soothe and protect skin against inflammation. It would be a great addition to your regimen!
