Time Release Acne Cleanser is recommended as a Step 1 cleanser in any Murad Anti-Aging Acne regimen. It helps clear skin and restore youthfulness as part of Dr. Murad's inclusive health system of care.

Dermatologist developed. Tested on people, not animals. Formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.

    Comments about Murad Anti-Aging Acne Time Release Acne Cleanser:

    I highly recommend this cleanser to anyone who wants a basic yet effective cleanser to generally hold mild breakout at bay. Before I tried this, I used Murad's Clarifying Acne cleanser. It was wayyyy too harsh and drying. This is wonderful. It never feels drying or harsh and it seems to help my skin stay even except for occasional hormonal breakouts. It doesn't foam or suds up. I can use it year round on my combination skin.

        Comments about Murad Anti-Aging Acne Time Release Acne Cleanser:

        I've been using this face wash for about 2 months now & I only have good things to say. I've struggled with acne since around 8th grade & I am now 31 & have been dealing with cystic/hormonal acne. I've tried SO many things to get rid of my acne & scarring. This has made a tremendous difference. I went from having typically 8+ pimples on my face and all around my jawline/neck DAILY to only having 1 or 2 when it's that time of the month. I've been washing my face daily with this & using the Murad Advanced Acne & Wrinkle Reducer Serum afterwards. I have noticed a slight difference with my fine lines but nothing huge thus far. I would most definitely encourage anyone else struggling with acne & wrinkles to give this a shot & to try the serum if you're able to. They're both pricey but they're worth it.

        Not Effective

        By melissam

        from .

        Comments about Murad Anti-Aging Acne Time Release Acne Cleanser:

        wasn't really effective, got this for my boyfriend he has super oily skin and a lot of acne, the cleaner doesn't even soap up. other products like exfoliators, cleansers, and mask do a better job at reducing oils on his skin than this product, makes me want to avoid this brand all together

          I've been using this product for a few years now and I absolutely love it. It's been a massive help with controlling my hormonal breakouts, and overall evening out my complexion. It's a great product from a great brand.

              Comments about Murad Anti-Aging Acne Time Release Acne Cleanser:

              I was honestly excited to try this product. I have had acne for years and was looking to find something that would reduce how bad my flare ups were. I also noticed that I was starting to get a lovely forehead wrinkle. So this product seemed perfect but nothing has happened. The reason I still like to use it is because it removes just enough oil without over drying. I'm hopeful it will actually help with the acne and wrinkle soon.

                      Yes, if you have cystic acne along with dehydration. But if you have cystic acne with a moderate to heavy amount of oil I would recommend using Clarifying Cleanser.

                      This can depend on how much hydration you need - we like Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 30, Item #: 2289921. It's very hydrating but is not heavy on the skin and we like that it has an SPF of 30.
