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.

It works!

By Rey

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

I started having cystic acne out of nowhere. This helped (along with other products) to help lower the amount of breakouts I was having. I've been using for a few weeks and my skin is almost back to what it was before the breakouts.

Irritated my eyes

By LaurenM40

from NH

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

I 'm 40 and I love Murad's Clarifying Cleanser so I thought having the benefits of anti-acne AND anti-aging would be great so I ordered this cleanser when I got low on the regular clarifying cleanser. It took me a little while to figure it out, but unfortunately this one somehow kept getting in my eyes and making them appear very bloodshot and red and I had to throw this a product away.

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

    I love Murad. Its the only product I've tried that actually works in preventing breakouts. I use this face wash in conjunction with the Anti Aging and Acne Serum. The face wash doesn't lather which took some getting used to, but it feels very refreshing on the skin and has a nice scent that isn't over powering. I use the face wash twice a day and the serum once a day, it doesn't dry out my skin.

        By Tall Blonde

        from Delaware

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

        This stuff is awesome! I get horrible hormonal breakouts every now and then and no matter what skin care products or spot treatments I use when I'm having them I always wake up with more Whitehead's, not with this! I wipe off my make up with micellar water and then use this. I massage it on my face and then let it sit on my skin for a minute or two while I brush my teeth and it leaves my face clean and with a cooling tingle! Put some acne moisturizer on after and woke up with no new breakouts! It's my new favorite cleanser! Thank you 21 days of beauty!

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

          Have been using this product for over a year, now. When I ran out and didn't have it for a week, I noticed a difference in my adult acne. I'm not sure about the anti-aging properties of this product, but it definitely works on acne. I'm 44, and have pretty oily skin, but regular acne products dry me out too much. This product helps with breakouts, and doesn't make my skin dry or scaly.

                • Q:

                  Can I apply a toner after this product using a cotton pad? Or would the act of doing so remove the time released acne medication from my skin? I have been using this time release cleanser and immediately following with toner, I want to make sure that the witch hazel toner is not rendering the time release medication ineffective. Please answer, thanks!

                • Q:

                  I just bought this product instead of the regular clarifying acne cleanser and am wondering is it normal for this product to not foam, lather or suds up at all when it is rubbed onto my wet skin? Also, is this good for removing face make up or should I double cleanse with something else?

                    A:

                    The Time Release Acne Cleanser does not have as much surfactant in it as other cleansers so it does not lather as much. We do not test the cleanser as far as makeup removal.
