Ask a Question
The primary cause of acne breakouts is the build up of dead cells on the surface of the skin. Those dead cells then combine with excess oil on your face to clog pores, and when your pores become clogged then bacteria forms that ultimately leads to acne breakouts. The most effective acne treatment begins with a facial cleanser that helps to eliminate the bacteria that cause breakouts. The triclosan and salicylic acid in this acne treatment kill bacteria while also healing current and future breakouts. It's the first step in the Murad three step regimen to get rid of acne: cleanse, treat and hydrate. Skin cleansers that not only remove surface dirt but also treat the source of acne are a necessary step for a skin care routine that leaves you with beautiful skin! This maximum strength cleansing gel cleanser combats acne and skin breakouts. 92% of users experienced a reduction in acne breakouts in just 3 days (when used in combination with Acne Complex products (Clarifying Cleanser, Skin Perfecting Lotion, Acne Spot Treatment). Encapsulated Salicylic Acid continually releases acne treatment for hours even after rinsing. Silver Citrate provides powerful antibacterial protection to inhibit blemish formation.

                    Comments about Murad Travel Size Acne Complex Clarifying Cleanser:

                    I had been searching for a cleanser that meets my needs: doesn't dry out skin, doesn't make skin oily, no leftover residue, clears acne, minimizes redness. This fits the bill. I've only been using it for about a week and began using it during my time of the month when my skin is the worst. After the first use, I could tell that this cleanser was really clearing out my pores. It almost gave my skin a little reboot, bringing everything to the surface and then clearing it out. I've been following this cleanser with Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. Perfect combo!

                        A:

                        This is very active with 1.5% salicylic acid. If you are just starting on an acne regimen we sometimes recommend to use one time a day for your skin to acclimate. Then you can move up to two times a day.
