FREE Retinol Youth Renewal Serum Foil w/any 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've heard a lot of murad and wanted to try their products. I like this cleanser a lot. It's a gel formula which i don't mind at all. It lathers up so it's naturally more drying than a milk cleanser would be. I've been breaking out because of hormones and i even had a little bit of cystic acne. This cleanser has cleared me right up. I follow up with a moisturizer.

    Comments about Murad Travel Size Acne Complex Clarifying Cleanser:

    I had painful cystic acne for over 5 years. One night we saw an infomercial and I tried it. Proactive had made my acne worse because of the benzoyl in it, so I was skeptical. Within the first week of using the step plan the pain from my acne was gone and the bumps were going down. After a month of daily use my acne was 90% gone. 9 years later I still only use Murad faithfully but only the cleanser once a day and I still haven't had a breakout. It is beyond worth the money!!

                      I have semi problematic skin. Not horrible acne, but never completely clear. I started using this and liked the tingly feeling it gave to my skin. After using it for almost two weeks I had noticed nothing different with my skin, except for the extreme dryness around my nostrils and chin. Once I stopped using the product it only took 1-2 days for the extreme dryness to subside.

                          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.
