Love this, don't judge against other products 
I love this product. Within 3 days it clears up my cystic-prone skin. I understand some people are compaing this to another product and that makes them unhappy, but it's not a fair comparison. This clears my skin and keeps is clean. Don't hate on this one because you are upset another product is MIA. This product changed my skin and how I feel about my skin- give credit where credit is due!

Please bring back the exfoliating gel 
I am considering switching to a whole new acne program due to the exfoliating gel being discontinued. Gave this new product a try and immediately my acne returned as bad as it was. Am very disappointed with this new one. Please bring back the gel. I am hoping enough people let you know how awful this new one is.

The exfoliating acne gel was the ONLY thing that worked for me. I'd been using it happily for years until they switched it to this. Why change one of your best products? My guess is that it lasted too long. I used to have tons of it, and now I'd give anything for a bottle 😞

Why mess with success? The exfoliating gel was a superior product - nothing in the "new" Murad line works even close to the exfoliating gel. Please, please bring it back. I am now searching for a new product outside the Murad line because of the unsatisfactory change.

Just OK 
I had used the Exfoliating Treatment Gel for YEARS and it worked great. My skin was nearly blemish free all the time. This new product (and the one combo for Acnewrinkles) does not do the same job. I agree that I have had more breakouts with this product (it only has .5% salicylic acid whereas the Exfoliating Gel had 1%). PLEASE bring back the 1% 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.
