FREE deluxe City Skin Overnight Detox Moisturizer w/any $55 Murad purchase
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 love to use this cleanser when I'm having a bit of a breakout. I just finished taking acutane a couple months ago so my skin is blemish free MOST of the time but I still get slight breakouts or just one or two pimples during certain times of the month (ladies I'm sure you know the frustration). So I like to use this cleanser during that time to reduce the severity and it helps clear my skin up pretty quickly.

                I would highly advise anyone who is looking for something new not to try this product. I have severe dryness , redness, and swelling due to the ingredients in this. I bought it because of the hype the company has gotten. The only thing o got out of this is a bad reaction that is taking forever to resolve. Please be aware of your allergies and your skin types. It says this works for all skin types but it did not help me at all. I will be returning this product immediately

                  It's a really good face wash for an oily acne prone skin. It has made a big difference in my problematic skin since I used it. I definitely recommend it to others with the same skin type it really works.

                        I have combination skin and I'm prone to acne breakout. I've been using this for a few months and i noticed a difference in my skin. Minimal to no breakouts. It's not harsh, there is no bad smell it does what its supposed to do. You can try this one for $9 which is great becuase a little goes along way.

                          I have been using this cleanser for less than a week , and already I can see a difference. I'm not sure if it's meant to clear uneven skin tones but I feel it's helping . I don't not have acne prone skin, but I use this in the morning and before bed.

                              This is great for helping to clear up acne. I would recommend starting with using it only a few times a week for your skin to acclimate to the acne medication it contains.

                              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.
