Ask a Question
Acne Control Clarifying Cleanser is a powerful gel cleanser that combats acne and skin breakouts. Clarifying Cleanser's rich lather strips away pore-clogging grime, oil and irritants as it helps treat and prevent acne breakouts with time-released medication that remains active for hours, even after rinsing.

Encapsulated salicylic acid provides a sustained release of acne medication to allow for hours of acne treatment. Silver citrate provides antibacterial protection to inhibit blemish formation. Acne Clarifying Cleanser is recommended as the Step 1 cleanser in any Murad Acne regimen as part of Dr. Murad's inclusive health system of care.

    Comments about Murad Travel Size Acne Control Clarifying Cleanser:

    I've been neglecting my skin a lot, so I recently bought some skin care from Kiehls and I've already seen the difference. The only thing I was missing was a good cleanser, so I decided to give this a try. I apply it to my skin with the Real Techniques exfoliating sponge and it feels so clean! There's a little tingle as it foams into my skin, and afterwards my face feels soft. I haven't seen my acne clear up a ton, but I just got it so I'm giving it a little time.

      Comments about Murad Travel Size Acne Control Clarifying Cleanser:

      It has been a struggle to find a cleanser I can count on. This one has by far been the most successful. I find it feels invigorating and the ability to foam is pleasing.

      I worked this slowly into my routine as it can be a tad drying. However, once followed with my normal moisturizer I find it to be comfortable.

      I only wish it was a little less expensive. But this travel size bottle does last me a month or two.

        Noticed a difference after the first days, leaving it smooth and clearing the skin. Product isn't drying after use which I love.

                      It really works well alone or with other acne products. The key is to wash your face daily.

                          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.
