Best Skin Care I ever used! I have been struggling with adult acne for years. I have tried every product under the sun. Proactiv worked for a little while but it eventually stopped working AND my skin looked dull, old and dried out. Since using Murad I have almost completely stopped breaking out! I haven't even been getting "period pimples"! My skin looks younger, more vibrant and healtier than it has in years! And the products last me forever. I HIGHLY recommend this. I know everyone is always skeptical about these reviews, I know I always am, but I am a real person and I got very real, and wonderful, results. I also have a guy friend, a little younger than me, who had equally great results. July 10, 2007
Clears up Acne even if used alone My age 17 son uses daily to keep his breakouts at bay. It works wonders even if he forgets to use any treatments afterwards. He has oily tzone, combination skin prone to blemishes and blackheads. I, on the other hand, would not recommend the cleanser for older adult skin that is normal to dry or combination because it may be a little too drying for everyday use. Try the time release acne cleanser in that case. It contains salicylic acid and anti-aging ingredients that will help to keep you breakout free August 6, 2014
This is the best acne solution out there! My friend convinced me to try Murad even though I had been to some of the best doctors with no success. I have now been breakout free for 6 months. I have a teenage son who is also using Murad and having great success! July 23, 2014
Super Helpful!! I tried so many other products for a year. Nothing works like this one! My skin feels so fresh and soft after washing with this cleanser. And more importantly, my face is more clear than before!!!! July 7, 2014

Great question! You can use the Clarifying Cleanser once in the morning and once in the evening. Then follow with your treatment and moisturizer. Splash your face with water and then put a dime size of the cleanser in your hand and rub together to lather. Wash your face with your hands and do so for about one minute. Rinse clean and pat dry.

About Murad Clarifying Cleanser
The primary cause of acne breakouts is the build up of dead cells on the surface of the skin. Those dead cells then combine with excess oil on your face to clog pores, and when your pores become clogged then bacteria forms that ultimately leads to acne breakouts. The most effective acne treatment begins with a facial cleanser that helps to eliminate the bacteria that cause breakouts. The Triclosan and Salicylic Acid in this acne treatment kill bacteria while also healing current and future breakouts. It’s the first step in the Murad three step regimen to get rid of acne: cleanse, treat and hydrate. Skin cleansers that not only remove surface dirt but also treat the source of acne are a necessary step for a skin care routine that leaves you with beautiful skin!

About Murad Acne Skin Cleansers
Murad acne skin cleansers are designed to deliver acne-fighting ingredients long after you’ve washed your face. The primary topical acne medication Salicylic Acid both unclogs pores and stops acne-causing bacteria before it can result in inflamed blemishes and visible breakouts. However, unlike harsher acne cleansers, Murad acne skin cleansers don’t over-dry or irritate your skin. You get clear skin that’s not irritated or reddened using the best acne-fighting topical medications around, as developed in Dr. Howard Murad’s Los Angeles dermatology and Inclusive Health® office.
