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
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
This product actually works I have tried every acne cleanser out there and none of them ever worked for me. They have dried me out, made me breakout more, or just did nothing and my skin remained the same. I would pile on the cover up and try to cover up my acne but that would only make it worse . A friend told me about murad and I was skeptical because I had tried everything under the sun and nothing was helping clear up my acne. She ended up getting me a sample from sephora and I used and liked it so i bought the acne kit. I had to be very patient with murad because my skin did not start clearing up until the second month of using it. Now the only time i have breakouts are when its my time of the month. Murad has cleared up my skin immensely!!!! I love this product and would recommend it to everyone facing acne problems like myself. May 17, 2014

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.
