Good Cleanser

I'm 28 years of age and had given up on anything working for my acne and acne scarring, from a cleanser to a moisturizer, to acne treatments. I didn't know until I was 25 from a dermatologists that I apparently had mild eczema along with the acne I had. I used ProActive in high school, didn't work. I tired a number of things along the years Aveeno, random doctor prescribed stuff that either gave me severe allergic reactions or didn't work at all. I can finally say that this cleanser is good for my skin. It does not leave my skin dry after or with ashy spots or flakey patches. Over time I see my skin looks and feels smoother and rejuvenated. I started using it in the summer and my skin gets oily on it's own and this helped with that, it do not add on excess oil. I am interested in seeing how this will hold up in the winter time, seeing that is when my skin really takes a beating. « less

Murad's C-Line is Amazing!

I am an avid skincare guru. I love to keep my face looking it's best. I was using Peter Thomas Roth and Mario Badescu line, but decided to give Murad a try. I'm so glad I did because of the quality products (but, I am feeling the sting in the wallet as this is an expensive line. The Essential C Cleanser is excellent. Foams we'll, washes off completely without any residue and has an attractive citric scent. Importantly, this does wonders for my skin. My face has been radiant, very clear, even toned and less oily. I usually use acne cleansers, but this life works, for me, like an acne line. As I type this review I have on the C mask. I'll wash this off and finish off with radiance serum and overnight moisturizer. If you can afford the ouch in your pocketbook, I highly recommend this cleanser (and Murad's C-Line).

Bright skin

This cleanser is a great addition to my morning and night routine. I have combination skin and I use this twice a day with no problems! I use a small amount on my clarasonic and I have seen a noticeable difference since I have started to use this. My skin feels softer and more importantly looks brighter and the small discolorations I had from pimples are gone. My skin is very sensitive as well and I wasn't sure I could use this twice a day- but no dryness and my oily t- zone is a thing of the past. I do use the vitamin C serum by Murad at night as well.

Sensitive skin, beware

I have used Murad t-zone for many years, which has helped my skin. I used the Essential C serum sample and loved it. Ordered the kit. The first time I used this cleanser my face (chin, where the most sensitive) felt tight and dried out. Now my chin has broken out and very red (days later). I have to think it was this cleanser as none of the other products immediately felt irritating to my skin. I never break out, never, and am traveling soon and will hope my skin has calmed down. As it is I will have redness for awhile as I am fair. Sensitive skin beware.

a major factor in the restoration of my skin

I am a victim of extreme hyper pigmentation, acne, oily skin, large pores, and recently over drying due to aggressive approaches to cure my acne. I've been using this product for a week now and I can already see my hyper pigmentation fading, my pores look noticeably smaller and my skin is just overall hydrated and not cracking like before. Also, I haven't broken out despite all of the different oils that are in this product. I've redesigned my whole regimen and this product is at the center of it.
