FINALLY! That is what I have to say!
I have been for years (since I was 13)trying to find a face wash that is just right for my skin type. (VERY oily, dries out easily, large pores, weird small acne bumps, redness)
I would go from product to product to product and I would never find one that really made a difference. I even tried Murad's acne cleanser (blue bottle) and I did notice a slight improvement. But after about 8 months of use I said eh its not enough and went on the hunt again.
I searched the Ulta website to see what were the best sellers and this came up. I scoped it out. I have read so many good things about the ingredients included in this product and along with the great reviews (on here and other sites I check them all)I said I MUST try this. I am so glad I did.
In just a few washes I could see my pores become smaller, my skin felt smooth and soft but in no way dry or stripped. My redness is almost nothing and my weird little bumps have gone away. I have used this product for a good month now and I am in love with it. So much so that I'm going to be purchasing a pairing product from this line from Murad to use with it. (some soft of moisturizer)
I am glad to say that I am done looking for a face wash product. This is it.
Side note, I did not notice a huge improvement on the oiliness of my skin. It still remained about that same. However, I am fully aware that is just my skin type and not a whole lot can really change that. But for those of you looking for that info there ya go. :)
I have normal/combination skin. My only problem area is really my nose(pores and blackheads) and my chin(occasional whiteheads and blackheads) a tiny bit. I bought this product because I've been on a lengthy search to find something to help clean out my pores and serve as an exfoliant. It smells super clean and leaves your skin feeling the same way and polished at the same time with the help of little beads inside. When I started using this product, my skin wasn't bad at all I just had problems with blackheads and enlarged pores on my nose as I said above. I used this product twice in the span of a week as instructed and everything was fine at first, but within a few days of the second use my skin broke out like crazy. I got pimples where I've never had them before like on my cheeks and forehead. When this happened I thought it was just purging everything out of my skin but this breakout lasted for WEEKS. I have no idea if it was an allergic reaction, I didn't have any puffiness but this product didn't work for me at all. I'm not trying to bash this product, just sharing my experience because I know I find it helpful to read both good and bad reviews on products to really get the full scoop. My guess is that the chemicals in it were too drying for my skin causing it to overproduce oil.

I honestly thought I wouldn't find anything that would help with the blackheads and clogged pores I get. I ended up researching this product and decided to go for it, even though the price. It is worth it. I use 3 days a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) as my evening wash. I have only used it consistently with that schedule for a week and half, but I can definitely notice and feel a difference. My blackheads are easily extracted and cleared away. I don't normally write reviews, but this product deserves one. So far, so good!

This might bee good for a younger person. Although I scrubbed very lightly, I still had tender skin afterward.
Taylor from Detroit, MI
I use this a few times a week to make sure I get all of the dead skin cells off. It really helps to clear my pores. Prior to using this, I suffered from some acne, and this seems to have helped calm it down.
Meow from NY
I got this in an Ipsy bag and it's the best stuff. I'm forever a customer. I'm 50 and have aging skin but I also had a ton of deep seated blackheads on my nose. After regular use the black heads are minimal and the rest of my skin is radiant.

This is by far the best brand . It's a tad on the pricy side but it's worth it .

Absolutely love this whole line with the cleanser and serum and moisturizer. Use it twice a day and immediately moisturize. I have fewer blemishes. When I'm able to get consistent facials my skin looks amazing with this cleanser as my daily upkeep.

I have little to no breakouts, but suffer from oily skin. I think this product has helped control my oils. It also gave my skin a bit of a glow. Little squeeze goes a long way. Have been using it every other night.

I received this in the mail a couple of days ago I cleansed my face with this and I LOVE how it made my face feel. Not only did it cleanse my face but it let it smooth and glowing I felt like I didn't even need to put anything else in bc it just really made my face feel complete. The exfoliating part is so micro you can barely feel it scrubbing yourself face it doesn't strip your face either. For the price the bottle is huge you def get your money's worth.

This is a very harsh cleanser, but it does a great job. I wouldn't use this around the eye area or if you have severely dry skin. But it would be very good for oilier types or if you're looking to resurface. Make sure to use a toner and a good moisturizer after
BballMom from McLean VA
This cleanser is one of my staples. I use this at night. It's compatible with my Clarisonic and preps my skin for my retinol. My sister is also a fan and uses hers in the morning. Doesn't irritate my skin however I do have combo.
Jessica from California
I think this is a great product for removing dead skin and makes your skin soft and glowing! I enjoy the combination of physical and chemical exfoliation. I got this on sale and it was definitely worth the sale price but on its own it's pretty expensive. Will most likely purchase again at full price because it works well (:

I use this as a night scrub twice a week. I've also tried it as part of a "double cleanse" with Clinique's Take the Day Off oil balm. It works well. The physical exfoliant is small, so you don't have an overly aggressive feel to the scrub and the sodium PCA, helps with skin moisture. I don't get an overly dry feeling to my skin and since my skin is blemish prone, the salicylic acid helps to keep my skin clearer, at least, I'm assuming it does in combination with the lactic acid and glycolic acid to keep my skin clearer or debris. As a final note and consistent with my experience of other Murad products, the lather generated is appropriate. It's not as luxurious as a foaming cleanser, but offers more than a gel cleanser.
The only "con" I can think of at the moment is that percentage of acid found in the product is not listed, so the amount of salicylic acid, lactic acid, or glycolic is unknown as opposed to say, their anti-aging acne cleanser which lists salicylic acid at 0.5%. Would be nice to know.

I first received this product in a beauty box, and I cannot get enough of it. I have become a huge Murad fan thanks to this introduction, but the AHA/BHA exfoliant remains my #1 favorite.
Nicole from RI
Use two/three times per week

I have dry, textured skin, I have tried different exfoliating cleansers but where always drying. I finally found something that doesn't dry out my face! I use it twice a week, and it's been great! I've noticed a complete difference! Super hydrating, and makes my skin feel soft! I love it!
Ari from La Mesa SD
I had broken out around my cheek areas and my drugstore cleanser wasn't cutting out for me. I used to love love LOVE the Kate Sommerville Exfolikate cleanser but ulta didnt carry the full size so I decided to grab this bad boy.
In two weeks cleansing with this 3-4 days a week along with Microblading and toning with Mario Badescu's glycolic acid, I've noticed a huge difference. My cheeks are finally clearing up. The texture of my skin is diminishing. My face feels so soft and less dull.
Andy from Seattle
This is a great at exfoliating but isn't super strong. I feel like it offers a light exfoliation, but I still will use my Clarisonic to get the deep exfoliation I was craving. Overall, great cleanser and leaves the skin polished.
Kenn92 from PA
Murad products are amazing on my skin. I use the most, this exfoliating cleaner, and their water gel. My skin looks so nice, acne was always an issue for me until discovering this product
Sharil from PA
I had been using Rodan + Fields Redefine Cleanser for close to a year. I wanted to try something in the Murad line because I love the other Murad products I use and was looking for convenience and some cost savings. This cleanser made such a difference in my skin.
Brenda from Iowa
I use this product twice a week.
babystacie from mi
I love this stuff so much i bought 2 more.

Because I have dry skin a lot of exfoliators leave my skin tight and uncomfortable or even worse stinging. This cleanser gives the best of physical and chemical exfoliation without causing discomfort. The beads for the physical aren't like other products. They are much smaller and finer and quickly dissolve as you cleanse. They just melt away. In order to get benefits from the aha/bha for chemical exfoliation I leave the product on my skin for a minute or two. Idk if that's long enough but hopefully it's helping.
This is NOT AN EVERY DAY PRODUCT! Reading reviews of people using this once and sometimes twice *cringing so hard* a day was horrifying! Please please don't do that! You are over exfoliating and destroying your lipid barrier! Between 1 and 3 times a week depending on what's happening with your skin will leave it smoother, less textured and healthy.
Max from PA
This is a very fine scrub if I have ever felt one. A delicate balance between grit and grace, it neither stubbornly sticks around or melts away too fast. The exfoliation hits the spot while getting every corner.
G from Idaho
I can tell a major difference when I use this product! It makes my skin feel so soft and rejuvenated. Will be purchasing again
