This is my absolute favorite cleanser in the entire world. I (VERY) rarely repurchase a product, and this is one I’ve gotten 4+ tubes of. 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.
That said, this Murad® Time Release Acne Cleanser is the only product that has consistently kept my hormonal breakouts at bay, withOUT leaving my skin tight and dry. I typically use it as a second cleanse, and it leaves my skin feeling plump, hydrated, and nearly acne-free...sans irritation. Since it contains the encapsulated Salicylic Acid, my only recommendation is to be mindful of the products you use after it - you don’t want to layer on a bunch of other acids and irritate your skin! Even with oily, acneic skin, you want to moisturize.
I follow this cleanser up with the Murad® Resurgence Hydrating Toner, which only reinforces my skin’s purity and suppleness, or the Murad® Environmental Shield Essential-C Toner is also amazing! Then, whichever night serums and creams I’m using, or a moisturizer with SPF for daytime.
Highly, highly, highly recommend!
