Perfect way to start my day! 
This is my morning cleanser and it's perfect. Smells so good, really hits the spot. I have tried every cleanser I can think of, and nothing (besides AHABHA cleanser--love--) works like this one. Smooth, but gets in there. I am glowing when I get out of the shower, before I even apply the rest of my Murad regime. Highly recommended. Got my BFF hooked! Thank you Dr. Murad!

OBSESSED 
This cleanser is a game changer. My skin is sensitive and I typically don't use a lot of product (both skincare and makeup) so this was a big step but I am glad I took the plunge! I use this cleanser on a daily basis, and as other reviewers mention, it smells amazing and leaves my skin feeling radiant and refreshed... I've received a ton of compliments on my skin lately and I've already told friends they have to check it out. Thank you Murad! :)

Lightweight for summertime use only 
This is a translucent lightweight cleanser, perfect to do what a cleanser does. It has beads in it which dissolve easily, doesnt scrub your face or polish it. I find nothing special about this cleanser and I would definitely not recommend if wanting to remove stubborn makeup or mascara, or to use in the wintertime when skin needs hydration.

Love this Facial Soap! 
I love the way this soap smells and the feel of it going on my face. Feels like has exfoliators in it - thick. I massage my face as I use, not a quick wash for me as I love the way it feels and take my time while using it. I also use the Clarifying Cleanser by Murad at times to wash my face, I keep both on hand.

A: The Essential C Cleanser is not formulated to address breakouts. For acne breakout concerns we recommend Clarifying Cleanser or Time Release Acne Cleanser.
