              Comments about Murad Anti-Aging Acne Time Release Acne Cleanser:

              I've been using this product for about a year now and I've never been happier with my skin. I've always struggled with breakouts and this cleanser has help tremendously! I still get some small breakouts during that lovely time of the month but its so much easier to manager. This product is 100% worth the money. It foams up nicely so a little goes along ways. Just remember, when trying a new product give it some time to actually work and give it a fair chance to do its thing. Acne doesn't clear up over night.

                Comments about Murad Anti-Aging Acne Time Release Acne Cleanser:

                I have been using this product, day and night for about six weeks and my skin has definitely cleared up. I am fortunate to have pretty good, albeit, combination skin and have used products like Cetaphil, St. Ives, Aveeno, and Mario Badescu in the past. Nothing has made my skin smoother and clearer than this cleanser. I get flare ups around my cycle, and have had fairly stubborn chin acne for most of my teen to adult life, and this cleared it up for good. The cleanser is very gentle with no irritating fragrances or texture. I use this with my Clarisonic Mia 2 and follow with Murad products: toner, serum, and anti-aging lotion.

                          Time Release Acne Cleanser is great for those who experience acne break outs but are on the dehydrated side too. If you have oily skin with acne breakouts I'd recommend the Clarifying Cleanser.

                          This can depend on how much hydration you need - we like Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 30, Item #: 2289921. It's very hydrating but is not heavy on the skin and we like that it has an SPF of 30.
