      I love this. Actually, I've discontinued using other serums, moisturizers, etc. I've found my skin is most clear with this and it heals/ discontinues pimples that normally would have been inflamed for 2 weeks. If I can fight squeezing/ picking, it makes them go away without a blemish

          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.

                    A:

                    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.
