    Comments about Murad Soothing Gel Cleanser:

    I have been using this product daily for about a week, and can already notice a difference in the texture and appearance of my skin. It is great to use with my Clarisonic, and is gentle enough that it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. My skin feels so clean, and my pores seem to have shrunk significantly. I would definitely recommend, and am excited to try more Murad products in the future!

      Comments about Murad Soothing Gel Cleanser:

      Needed a cleanser that worked with my Clarisonic and did't dry out my skin. It's important that the product have enough "slip" so that the bristles don't scrape and irritate facial skin. This works perfectly. I get beautifully smooth, even toned skin from the combo. I also tried it because my facial skin tends to have a slight red cast and folks with rosacea have given it rave reviews. Within a couple days (seriously!), my skin no longer had the red cast. (BTW, if it helps for reference, the red actually tends to get worse without the Clarisonic. The Clarisonic seems to help, as long as I don't use too harsh a cleanser, because of the stimulation/increased blood flow and it allows skincare products to penetrate more deeply.)

              Comments about Murad Soothing Gel Cleanser:

              I bought this after having tried out a new cleanser that destroyed my skin, it was in a constant state of dry patches and sensitive spots which even 2 months later I'm just now getting over but this cleanser was a life saver overall. I don't think any other cleanser could've soothed my aching face as well as this did. I'm knocking off one star just because it's the most gentle cleanser I've ever tried and it unfortunately has yet to make a difference in my acne. But other than that if you have sensitive skin and acne isn't a worry I'd recommend this.

                Comments about Murad Soothing Gel Cleanser:

                The local Ulta esthetician recommended this product for my fair, dry, redness-prone skin. I have been using it once or twice a day, together with the Dermalogica scrub (every other day!), Mario Badescu seaweed toner, and Olay's oil free moisturizer for sensitive dry/combo skin. So far I like all these products. The skin texture and clarity has started to improve, and I like how makeup applies especially on my exfoliating days. It IS pricy, but I had run out of everything I already had and knew it was time, at almost 28 years old, to put on my big girl panties and start prioritizing my skincare.

                    A:

                    Yes, this would be a good choice for you. Dr. Murad would recommend to make sure you are hydrating your skin enough. Often skin is sensitive due to the lipid barrier of the skin not being strong enough. Proper hydrations strengthens this barrier and helps skin stay strong.

                    Yes, you may. If it is a prescription we always recommend you speak with your doctor before adding a new product into your routine.

                  Does this product help to get rid of acne? I have acne-prone skin, but it's also sensitive so I can't use a lot of the harsh acne products that are sold specifically to fight acne.

                    A:

                    Unfortunately, this is product does not have ingredients that will get rid of acne. The products in our Anti-Aging Acne collection are more gentle than our regular Acne collection. That might be a good option for you.

                    A:

                    Yes, you can. I would also recommend using an extremely hydrating moisturizer. Often times people who are sensitive are extremely dehydrated and need to strengthen their skin's barrier.

                    A:

                    Because the Soothing Gel Cleanser is so gentle it will help calm your skin however it might not treat your redness over the long term. We recommend adding Sensitive Skin Soothing Serum, http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod540266, to your routine before apply moisturizer. Chamomile and Arnica help to soothe the skin while Hyaluronic Acid helps keep the top layer of skin strong and hydrated.
