Acne Clarifying Toner is recommended as the first step in any Murad acne routine as part of Dr. Murad's Inclusive Health system of care.

                    I recently got this for my boyfriend, since he loves using mine. He love sit just as much as i do! We can both agree it leaves such a clean feeling, you feel so fresh after you use it! Although it may burn at first when you first start testing out the product, he describes it as a good kind of burn. We both love it so much & definitely does help clear out skin from breakouts. Ive used about 4-5 bottles

                    Good toner. Definitely makes skin feel clean after use. The only negative is that it can make your skin a little dry, but nothing not expected with an acne toner. I recommend.

                    FYI - I have combination skin.

                    Comments about Murad Acne Complex Clarifying Toner:

                    My skin is combination/oily and relatively clear, but I still have acne that never clears 100% so I thought that using a toner such as this one would be the solution. I've never been one to use a toner, and after wasting my money on this product, I feel very hesitant to try purchasing a different one.

                    This toner does its job to cleanse my skin, and it gives a cooling sensation after you use it, but I quit this product after 0 difference in two weeks (and going back to it every now and then, but still unsatisfied). My acne was the same, my pores were the same, and I honestly feel like I can get my skin clean enough without this toner in my skincare routine. It's an OK product if you're one to use toners, but I'm not completely sold.

                        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

                        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!
