Best cleanser ever! 
I am not a reviewer first of all. This deserves it though. I wish I had tried this sooner. I am 31 years old and have had troubled skin since the age of 16. I've used proactive, clinique, olay, Neutrogena, etc. This product line is heaven sent I am so happy every time I'm washing my face that I found murad! This cleanser specifically is very balmy and gentle yet completely removes long wear makeup and gets the skin CLEAN without the tight and too dry feeling afterwards. Please do yourself a solid and purchase this you will be so happy you did!

Product made my skin extremely dry 
I purchased this product at a spa after an appointment for a facial. I have acne, and relatively sensitive skin. If you have sensitive skin, I would not recommend using this product, or I would use a very small amount maybe once every couple of days. Using this product made my skin red, itchy and very very dry.

I have been dealing with hormonal breakouts oily skin for over a year and I was fed up. I went to talk to my dermatologist and he recommended this cleanser to me. It has been over just ONE WEEK and every breakout is honestly GONE. Washing my face used to be a hassle but when you see results this fast I look forward to my daily morning and night routine! I love this product and recommend it to everyone. Best purchase you will make!!

I just had to write a review for this cleanser. I was experiencing hormonal acne and visited my dermatologist and my GYN a couple times because I kept getting large cysts and tiny pimples with them. Needless to say, I was prescribed a few things that did not work! I was embarrased because my oil was out of control and I had new pimples and cysts every couple of weeks. I bought this cleanser almost a month ago and I can say that my skin is looking like a baby again. My skin is clear, minimal oil, and has a beautiful healthy glow. I am getting compliments on my skin and I am back to feeling good about it. I feel confident again. For anyone that has hormonal acne with cysts, this cleanser is for you. There are many different ingredients to help with aging which is an added bonus. I will not go without this cleanser again! I wish I could hug Dr. Murad! Please give him and his development team a huge thank you from me!
