Amazing! 
This product is the only thing that clears up my skin. I've dealt with acne for years and I have dry skin, its doesn't completely dry out your skin and is fast acting on acne.

Try a week sample before you buy!! 
So I got a small sample of this product and loved it. I loved how it smelled, loved the gel consistency, loved the clean tingly feeling of my skin after using. BUT...I wish I had used a larger sample (it was a very small amount, enough for just 1-2 uses).

I bought the full size thinking I loved the product. By about the 3rd day, I broke out in very small bumps and whiteheads. I know that sometimes people claim that the skin "purges" all the nastiness, so I tried to keep going. Within another day or two, my skin was burning throughout the day even when I wasn't touching it! Yikes! It was horrible. The tiny bumps were almost like a red, puffy rash all over my cheeks and chin. I don't even really have sensitive skin and usually don't have issues like this, so I was very surprised. I stopped using it and the next morning my face felt better and the stinging began to subside. Within another two days, my poor skin looked normal again.

Needless to say, I returned it. I was so disappointed because I've used the Acne Clearing Solution for over a year in combination with another brand cleanser and it's been fine. I wanted to go with Murad to see if the hormonal acne I still continued to get each month would get better. So I exchanged the Clarifying Cleanser for the Time Release Acne Cleanser and my skin feels very supple and looks smooth. It's calm again!

The only thing I can think of is that the concentration of salicylic acid in the Clarifying is just too high for my drier skin. I'd just recommend asking for enough of the product to sample for about a week to make sure you're good.

Still on the fence 
I've only started the regimen 2 weeks ago and I do see a difference. It's not drastic and I am still getting new acne but my skin takes a while to adjust so I'm hoping it will start to clear up soon! I love the smell & the feeling it leaves on my skin.

Ingredient Spotlight

Green Tea

Because Green Tea consumption has been linked to better health and enhanced longevity, scientists have been searching for the source of Green Tea’s seemingly magical effects. Current thinking is that the antioxidant polyphenols present in Green Tea act as free-radical scavengers that protect cells against environmental damage and help prevent premature aging. Another class of compounds, xanthines, has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties which may help reduce the severity of a wide range of diseases and conditions. By adding Green Tea extract to skincare formulas, Dr. Murad has discovered that he has been able to enhance their power to calm and soothe red, inflamed and irritated skin.
