The best face wash ever! 
I am a 39 year old bald (and shaved head) male. I have had skin problems for a few years now. Severely dry skin, a little rosacea, occasional breakouts... I spent a few years washing my face only occasionally, wearing a hat daily to hide dry flaky skin that eventually turned into an oily piece of leather.
My wife brought home a sample tube of Renewing Cleansing Cream, and I tried it. It worked so well on the first wash! It didn't dry my skin out at all, and allowed a great clean foundation for my lotion. I was reluctant to wash my face every day due to such sensitive skin, but this face wash felt so good I washed the next day anyway. Then the day after that, and so on. The wash instantly cured ALL of my skin concerns in only a few washes. I could never explain here how grateful I am to Murad for this product! I have been using this product, along with a Kiehls lotion for a couple of years now. I use it on my neck, face, forehead. I go through one tube of cleaner every few months. A little goes a very long ways. It is refreshing, moisturizing, smells ok, rinses very well, and exfoliates great!

I did love this product even though I had some breakouts 
I used the Resurgence cleanser, eye cream and moisturizer.
Pros: My skin felt amazing!, hydrated, soft, I even felt like I had a glow. Some days I actually went without makeup! I felt my skin tone was more even and my redness and dryness were greatly diminished.
Cons: I did have some breakouts on my chin, that's it! my only down downside.

I gave it 5 stars because my overall experience with the product. The breakouts have disappeared so it could have been just the change in the regime.

Like cleaning your face with moisturizer 
This is a super luxurious cleanser, a thick creamy one that slathers on. It doesn't foam up into a lather, but rather, stays as a very rich, luxe cream. After washing it off with water, my skin feels supple, soft, and clean, without feeling stripped or dry. I feel more bounce in my skin, and my skin also looks brighter and clearer.

This stuff is AMAZING!!! I started out using the Anti-AgingAcne regimen and a month later my face was so much healthier that the esthetician recommend this or the Essential-C line. I went with this one because I knew that my face needed some more hydration and the hydrating toner works great with this cleanser. The toner comes in a spray, which was a little misleading. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to spray it on or gently rub it like I had with the clarifying toner. I was doing a combination of the two and my face started to feel pretty dry... Once I started applying it with a cotton pad, my face was... well, renewed! I really love this stuff and, as long as it works, I will certainly continue using it!!

Remarkable product for sensitive skin 
I have been using this product for over 5 years and it is the only cleanser that I will use on my sensitive skin. Occasionally I have tried other cleansers but I always come back to Murad. It leaves my skin clean and hydrated while other cleansers left my skin dry, red, or blotchy.

Q: Does this cleaner have the microbeads for exfoliation. I like them in the anti-aging line cleanser.

A: The Renewing Cleansing Cream does not have jojba beads in it. It contains fruit enzymes which help to gently exfoliate the skin when massaged on your skin for one minute.
