        This is the best acne cleanser ever! I have acne prone skin and have tried every possible brand out there and Murad is the only brand that works on my skin. I saw clearer skin in 3 days, no joke, and I no longer have acne prone skin, just healthy skin.

          Comments about Murad Acne Clarifying Cleanser:

          I use this face cleanse daily. I have the entire set of Murad products. I have used tons of facial cleansers, and none have been effective like this one. Every person is different and I have minimal breakouts, but when I do breakout, it is everywhere. With this cleanser combined with the moisturizer, my breakouts are gone within a couple days. About 85% of the time, my breakouts are stopped before they even happen. I love this facial wash. It rinses clean and doesn't dry out skin.

          Comments about Murad Acne Clarifying Cleanser:

          This product seems to reduce the size of acne spots after a wash. However it does dry out the face. I have had this product for two weeks and it seems to work slowly.

            Comments about Murad Acne Clarifying Cleanser:

            I bought this product in the Murad Acne Starter Kit. I tried a product by them about a year before that was effective, but didn't repurchase as I was looking for a cheaper alternative and forgot about it. It could be a personal skin preference, but the Murad line seems to work wonders for my skin. I've been breaking our horribly for about six months and have tried everything under the sun before then and since then, but this cleanser is the first and only thing that has shown an improvement in my skin - and fast, as well. All of the pro's listed are accurate and I haven't found a single con with this product. I'm finally beginning to feel comfortable in my own skin (literally) and I owe it to Murad. I cannot recommend giving this product a try enough.

                  Comments about Murad Acne Clarifying Cleanser:

                  I've been exploring the world of skin care after yeas of using a topical prescription and I read a lot of reviews about Murad for people suffering from acne. I have been fighting that acne battle for about 17 years now, with both highs and lows but after using this product my skin is at an all time low. My skin was swollen and irritated for almost 3 weeks (hoping it would get better, but it got worse). The day i finally called it quits I went back to using Lush's bar charcoal soap and it made a world of difference. Still covered in blemishes but not so irritated. Tie to go back to the dermatologist! I do however still like the SPF Matiffying Lotion from their line.

                    I have oily/combination, sensitive, acne prone skin. While I still get a few pimples throughout the month, they quickly heal up. I've had this product for a couple months and use it about 2x a day. Half of the bottle still remains, so a little goes a long way.

                      I receievd a travel size of this product as a promotion. I'm so glad I did or I probably never would have tried it. I had run out of my regualr cleanser so I was using this to get by ... After a few weeks I noticed how awesome my face looked and realized it had to have been the cleanser!! I have sinced purchased other Murad products and love them, to!

                          No, it is not. Murad is committed to protecting animals by testing products on people, by using ingredients that have not been animal tested and by supporting and sponsoring animal rescue groups and oceanographic teaching institutions.

                          If you are using Clarifying Cleanser morning and night, it should last between 2-3 months depending on if you are using a pea size amount or dime size amount of product.

                          The active ingredient, Salicylic Acid, helps to exfoliate the skin to unclog pores and eliminate blackheads and also helps to eliminate blemish-causing bacteria on the skin.
