      By Joylinn

      Comments about Murad Sensitive Soothing Gel Cleanser:

      I went into my Ulta on Stephanie/Warm Springs &there I found Saint Michael wearing all black for Murad, by the end, all I saw was a flowing cape&a halo of gold and white lightning! BY THE ULTIMATE HAMMER OF BLACK WIDOW LADY THOR HE IS A GOD-SEND! His shared life experiences let me know he's legitimately on his game at Boss Level because he didn't even miss a beat in selecting the exact products I needed for my lupus/scleroderma/dry/TIGHT/kindacombo/RED/tight//irritated/irritighted/TIGHT/TIGHT/tightedness&needless to say "sensitivities!" It was like watching the stars y'all, "I can't look away as I am too in awe!" He gave me this amazing routine and told me what I should get immediately &what I could wait on. This was about five days ago and my skin hasn't looked or felt this GOOD I Years. I have no way to ever repay my gratitude even though lord help me i will do what I can!!!! I have doctors and dermatologists who have never been remotely this helpful. Told me this is only available AT ULTA (&one spa chain in town, which let's face it I won't be going to) as he was getting the products together for me, it was kismet honestly because I got THE VERY LAST PRODUCTS IN STOCK that day. He said this line (@least every product he recommended) sells out almost immediately because it's only sold here! (@checkout I ALWAYS HAVE TO ASK if I could use my points at the store because In henderson idk, they LEGITIMATELY NEVER ask if I have points I'd like to use/coupons/ and NEVER even hint at the samples when I qualify which is why I prefer online, and they will have the samples in stock THAT is not issue sadly,) Michael MADE SURE I GOT THE RIGHT Free qualifying GIFT!! It just so happened it came with the moisturizer that he told me I could wait on until I finished the moisturizer I have now! What a perfect and fortuitous trip honest to Goddess! I didn't catch the names name who just so happened to help me before and introduced me to him but I thank this nameless man as well! He had a black pompadour with a spongebob tat on his hand and a cross or diamond near his eye with thick rimmed glasses and a Spanish accent. Sorry about the longness....

        After years of having issues from a chemical burn, all cleansers irritated my skin more. Walked into an Ulta to get my skin right this year and one of the workers assisted me. She really took the time to know about my skin. She offered this product and it has been a game changer. I am so grateful.

          Comments about Murad Sensitive Soothing Gel Cleanser:

          Bought this during a sale on a whim and I absolutely LOVE this face wash. I'm dry in my Tzone and during the winter it's even worse.. while this product is amazing and does contain light exfoliating beads, I still use a slightly deeper exfoliating wash on my more dry-flaky areas.. otherwise I noticed a difference in my complextion fairly quickly.

          *Personally, I saw even better results when I would lather my face with it (the smell is awesome), then increasingly rinse my face with warm water adding a little more each time so it creates a foam as you're rinsing it off :)

                  After having my son my skin became hyperpigmented and super sensitive. I tried many natural products and this has been the best and most consistent line for me. Breakouts, dryness and redness have improved tremendously in the last 8 months.

                    Recently diagnosed with Rosacea and this cleanser works great. Doesn't cause any irritation. Dermatologist said it was safe enough to use on post-lasered skin (without a washcloth). A little goes a long way. Make sure tube is stored upright as some gel will leak.

                        If this is supposed to be gentle why does this have hydrogen peroxide in it, when this is a known sensitizing ingredient?

                          A:

                          The purpose and function of hydrogen peroxide in Soothing Gel Cleanser is because it is a part of Murad's patented delivery system which provides anti-microbial action. Sensitive skin has a compromised barrier and the barrier is there to stop potential problems passing through and to protect the inside. Weakness of the skin's barrier is the underlying cause of sensitive skin. A thin, weak or damaged skin barrier allows irritants, microbes and allergens to easily penetrate, which makes skin vulnerable to creating conditions such as dermatitis or eczema. Soothing Cleansing Gel also contains ingredients to calm and soothe the skin. Lycium Barbarum Fruit (Goji Berry) Extract helps provide maximum soothing protection, Licorice Root Extract is a well-known anti-inflammatory agent and Allantoin among many other ingredients in this product provides anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory properties.

                          Yes, this would be a good choice for you. Dr. Murad would recommend to make sure you are hydrating your skin enough. Often skin is sensitive due to the lipid barrier of the skin not being strong enough. Proper hydrations strengthens this barrier and helps skin stay strong.

                          Yes, you can. I would also recommend using an extremely hydrating moisturizer. Often times people who are sensitive are extremely dehydrated and need to strengthen their skin's barrier.

                          A:

                          Because the Soothing Gel Cleanser is so gentle it will help calm your skin however it might not treat your redness over the long term. We recommend adding Sensitive Skin Soothing Serum, http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod540266, to your routine before apply moisturizer. Chamomile and Arnica help to soothe the skin while Hyaluronic Acid helps keep the top layer of skin strong and hydrated.
