Instant no. 1 cleanser

I work in a laboratory that exposes my skin to a wide range of chemicals and I wash my face up to three times a day and haven't had any negative effects of overuse which I've experienced with "sensitive skin" products.
Years of skin abuse and acne left my complexion uneven but this has helped brighten and provide a uniform glow without makeup. It isn't robust enough to remove stubborn mascara but I love that I can use it repeatedly without any fear of dehydrating my skin.

Great everyday cleanser

I always go for products that promise brightening and radiance and this cleanser doesn't disappoint. It's fantastic as an every day, morning and night cleanser to start the day and take my makeup off after work. It has a really light, refreshing scent and it's just a bonus that there's environmental protection since I live in a city!

Not my favorite...

I have acneic, oily/combination skin...which tends to also feel dehydrated. My job requires me to spend several hours outside each day, and I’m in an extremely humid/tropical climate. I purchased it in April to use daily in the morning, and I can’t really say I’m impressed - other than the fact that it’s lasted nearly 6 months and I still have an inch and a half of product left in the tube.

This face wash is soft and has a nice citrusy scent. However, it:
* Doesn’t foam up very much,
* Leaves my skin feeling a bit tight and dry,
* Hasn’t helped my breakouts, and
* Ultimately ends up making my skin feel oily-filmy by midday...which creates more breakouts.

Murad® makes a lot of high-quality products; this was personally a miss, and I won’t be repurchasing. As a product that ultimately just gets washed away, it didn’t do enough for me. (However, the Murad® Time Release Acne Cleanser is something I have purchased 4+ times - so check that out, my acneic friends.)
