Great Products 
I used Murad in my 40's then stopped. I have tried every line available including La Mer on down, if its out there I have used it. I am in my late 50's and my skin is dehydrated and thirsty. So a couple of weeks ago I thought I would retry his products in a couple of weeks my skin feels so much better, I use different products. I use the C products in the morning and the resurgence line in the evening and I love every resurgence product that I have used. Great products.

Just what I was looking for 
I have been a loyal user of a different murad cleanser for years but since I'm on a medication that makes my skin very dry I was looking for something more gentle that still cleansed my skin well. This product fits the bill. I didn't give 5 stars for two reasons - the residue it leaves behind feels too heavy for me, and I was surprised to see parabens in the formula.

The perfect facial cleanser 
Over the years I've tried lots of products. This is the best one ever. This cleanser does the job of deep cleaning while remaining mild. Other products were either too harsh, created more problems or left me feeling like Crisco before my day was done. Now my skin is clearer and so soft, and no more oily skin. I'm so glad an Esthetician recommended this product for me.

Smooth & Silky 
Perfect for sensitive, dry skin. Leaves your face feeling hydrated and smooth. I live in a very dry climate. This cleanser does not leave your skin feeling tight and dry after cleansing. I have tried several other brands of cleansers, this is by far the best!

Excellent cleanser 
This is my favorite cleanser. It smells great and leaves my skin very soft. I have oily skin, but still gets dry in the winter. It's hard for me to find products for my skin. I've tried many different brands and my face gets red or breaks out. I always come back to Murad products.
The refreshing cleanser doesn't irritate or dry my skin. It feels great and my face is glowing :)
I also have the energizing pomegranate cleanser and the essential-c cleanser. I also used the clarifying cleanser a couple of years ago because my skin was breaking out a lot (I think it was stress-related). Now, I rotate the refreshing cleanser and the pomegranate one. I think all of them are great, but this one is my favorite.

Q: Will this remove eye makeup?
Asked : Dec 11, 2014

Know the answer? Answer this question
A: Refreshing Cleanser is not recommended as a eye makeup remover. I would suggest Renewing Cleansing Oil as a more appropriate eye makeup remover. Abundant in natural botanical oils, it gently cleanses and renews the skin.
