Please bring back the exfoliating gel!!! 
I have used your acne product for so long and it's the only thing that has worked for me. The key to the steps is the exfoliating gel and I am so disappointed in the substitue. Please bring back what worked!!

This is the quickest solution to any breakout.
Pimples immediately start drying up and getting off you!
Wish it were a wee less expensive, but it is worth it without a doubt.

I was sold the Anti-Wrinkle .5% Salicylic Acid as a substitute. NOT EVEN CLOSE. I have since developed unrelenting break-outs, black heads, and all sorts of skin problems that were never a problem before. Please, please, please bring back Exfoliating Acne Treatment Gel 1.0% Salicylic Acid. Please....

This product doesn't work nearly as well as the exfoliating acne gel. My skin was responding so well to the gel and does not respond to this product.

Bring the exfoliating treatment gel back! 
Totally disappointed in the Murad company for discontinuing the exfoliating treatment gel. This is a lousy substitute and I refuse to buy it. I have used the Murad acne line for 10 years and never had any intentions of switching brands until now. Guess it is time to give that new R&F line that everyone is talking about a try. Maybe Murad should read some reviews from paying customers. I only read the first 10 and it seems like everyone is on the same page. Bring back the exfoliating acne treatment gel!

Q: Is this product meant to be used by itself, or should I put something else over it?

Know the answer? Answer this question
A: When you apply the Acne Clearing Solution you only need a small amount. A pea size is truly all you need. Allow it to then rest on your skin for 10 seconds and then apply a dime size of your moisturizer.
