Honest reviews


I think it is helping with my adult acne

I believe that when I use this product it does what it says it will, continue to work after I have washed it off. It does not dry out my skin and I feel like it cleans it very well.

So far so good.

Doesn’t dry out your skin and seems to hold acne back. It doesn’t fight it per say, but it does a decent job keeping you from further break outs. For a guy constantly working out and getting sweaty that is a challenge for sure. I will pick up another bottle of this when done.

Works Great

This is the exact same product that is sold in Sephora for 36 dollars. In my experience, although this will not suffice on its own for severe acne, it is gentle enough that it doesn’t irrate or inflame the skin. It feels calming and moisturizing–skin feels soft all day. No down sides, I highly recommend.

love it

this is my first time to buy a Murad cleanser and I love it! It feels very good and even leaves a little bit of a minty sent.

I liked it

I liked this product. Not sure if it worked as well as Proactiv, but I did like it. Would buy it again if I wasn’t using Proactiv.

Cross between scrub and cleanser, expensive

I have managed to mitigate my acne problems over the years with a combination of different products-but I still have issues with redness. However, there are still times of higher stress that bring out the worst in my skin. I purchased this product after raving reviews claiming this product helped with everything from wrinkles to acne and promising a brighter skin tone.I was most impressed with the consistency of this product. It is a mix between a cleanser and very gentle scrub-a consistency that many products try to obtain but few achieve. After using it, I had very few “dead spots” and my skin was red for only about two minutes afterwards. My skin also seemed to absorb products a little better than with my normal cleanser. Because I have semi-sensitive skin, I cannot use a scrub more than three or four times a week-but I was able to use this product two times daily without irritating my skin.Unfortunately I do not believe this cleanser cleared my acne or prevented new acne any faster/better than my normal cleanser and scrub-and neither are meant to target acne. Although there are number of acne fighting ingredients-white willow bark seems to the main acne fighting ingredient which essentially is only an exfoliator. It took me about six weeks to use the full tube, and because of the expensive and lack-luster results I switched back to my Neutrogena deep clean cream cleanser (oil free).I would recommend this product to someone with less severe acne that would like to exfoliate without irritation-but it is a little expensive for a cleanser that is not too type: 20-something, slightly pigmented, few lines, acne-prone, semi-sensitive, oily

Worked well for me without being overly drying

I have moderate acne and need to use an acne cleanser to help control breakouts. I have tried several kinds of OTC as well as dept. store brands and often they work for reducing the severity of breakouts but my face tends to become drier than desirable, even through I naturally have oily skin. I’d received a sample of this product and used it for about 2 weeks and was very pleased with the results and the overall impact on my skin. I’ve since purchased outright and continue to use. I’m pleased with it.

Great Cleanser for Oily Skin

This is a great cleanser. I keep it in the shower and use it every morning. It cleans the dirt out of my pores, leaves my skin soft and doesn’t dry out my skin. I have oily skin and it works great on me.

Murad Time Release Acne Cleanser

I have started using this cleanser now for about a week and I have noticed that my skin is a little clearer and softer than it was with store bought acne cleanser. It doesnt dry out my skin like the store bought cleanser does either. It is not as harsh on my skin. It goes on smooth and comes off real easy. No strong smell. It has a light and airy feel to it. I would definitely recommend this to people who have acne problems. I use it to keep from having acne problems, especially related to a womans hormone cycle. I have started my husband using it every moring as a preventative so he wouldnt have any issues with acne which on occasion he would pop up with a blemish here or there, but since he has been using it, not any more. I would definitely recommend using this product. And as a side note, its much cheaper to buy through Amazon then on Murad’s website directly.
