                      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!
