I like the cleanser, however... Has anyone experienced dryness when starting the to use this product?? January 7, 2015
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 AHA/BHA 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! December 24, 2014
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! :) August 15, 2014
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. August 6, 2014

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