      Comments about Murad Acne Complex Clarifying Cleanser:

      I have had somewhat acne since I was a teen. It never really got out of control until this past year where Ive had to go see a doctor multiple times. I have tried proactiv, topical creams, oral antibiotics, etc. and hate them all!! I Also never write reviews (ever) but I had to for this one. I have only been using murad face wash, acne gel and moisturizer for maybe 4 days now and have noticed a HUGE difference in my acne. I have problem areas that are always swollen and inflamed, and they are practically all gone. I actually can't believe it myself and keep thinking it's too good to be true. But if this continues the way it is, my acne might actually go away once and for all. I will continue to use this product as I absolutely love how much it works <3

        Comments about Murad Acne Complex Clarifying Cleanser:

        It's an okay cleanser. It's just not for me. It cleanses skin well to get rid of dirt and oiliness. I have semi-dry, oily, sensitive, occasional break out skin and I find exfoliating scrubs works best for me. I think the price is way to high for this product.

        Comments about Murad Acne Complex Clarifying Cleanser:

        I have tried a lot of acne products- I've had problems with my skin for about 10 years now,I tried this cleanser at a friends and within a few days of using it, noticed an improvement. So I finally caved and bought my own. With this cleanser, a little goes a long way. It only takes a small amount to work up a good lather on my face, and I started to see noticeable improvement a few days after starting to use it regularly. On its own, it is a bit drying, but so is every other cleanser- Get a good moisturizer, problem solved. I love this product, and my skin continues to improve as I keep using it

            Comments about Murad Acne Complex Clarifying Cleanser:

            I was hesitant to spend more than twenty dollars on face wash but this product is worth the price. I only use about a pea sized amount every morning so it will last for a long time. When I get a blemish it used to take all week to heal but since starting to use this product I notice the blemish in almost completely gone in half the time.

              I have been using this cleanser for over a year now and I have nothing but love for it. It is pricey, but you can easily control how much product you use. The bottle doesn't waste product and one will usually last me about 4+ months. I am 20 and have moderate-mild acne and it feels very soothing on the face. I do not think it has a bad smell. Murad is an amazing brand.

                    A:

                    Yes, it is. We always recommend removing makeup at the end of the day before cleansing your skin. It's especially important if you are dealing with acne and want to maintain clearer skin.

                    A:

                    While you might see a difference with Clarifying Cleanser, for cystic acne, we typically recommend seeing a physician because this type of acne responds better to prescription medication.

                    Yes, the active ingredient, Salicylic Acid, provides light exfoliation to improve skin texture, tone, and clarity, as well as helps to clear pores of acne-causing bacteria and debris for a clearer complexion and more even skin tone.
