Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fab cleanser I never write reviews normally and I have used over the years and array of expensive products. However, I started using Murad after a friend who is training to be a beauty therapist gave me a starter kit to try. I’m hooked!!! Literally after 2 days, I and everyone who saw me noticed the difference in my skin. it’s smoothed out my skin and has a new springlike look. I’m using the whole essential C range but the AHA free gift is also great. Expensive but worth every penny. I’m 48 and I’m told I look young for my age but I’m starting to look younger with these products

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Question... Is this a vegan product? I saw that it does not test on animals, however, I would like to know if it contains any animal derived products. I had a sample of this and loved it. Thanks!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Microbeads I got this in a set and while I liked it, I wanted to see what the exfoliator actually was. Unfortunately, this cleanser contains microbeads, so I won't use it anymore. There are plenty of natural alternatives, no need to poison the world for the sake of a beauty product. Use Murad's AHA/BHA exfoliating cleanser instead, much better without the harmful stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice to use I bought this product after seeing it mentioned in Women's Health magazine where it said it was a good cleanser to use after a workout to remove sweat and dirt. It seems to work really well, easy to use and a nice faint fragrance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it and it works I've been using this product for some time now and it does what it says. I'm black and this definitely helps with hyperpigmentation.

Vitamins A, C and E are powerful antioxidants to defend skin from free radical damage while infusing it with essential nutrients. This cleanser uses Sodium PCA to bind moisture to the skin, keeping it looking supple, soft and youthful, while the Allantoin used is a soothing and moisturising ingredient which rejuvenates skin, promoting a healthy and beautiful complexion.

How To Use

Lather a small amount in the palm of your hand. Add water to create a rich creamy lather and massage all over the face, neck and chest. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry. For optimal results, use twice daily and follow with a Murad Step 2 treatment and Step 3 moisturiser.
