Murad – Acne (Clarifying Toner)

Online Description:

What it is:
An oil-fighting toner that refreshes and purifies acne-prone skin.

What it is formulated to do:
Clarifying Toner is an ideal way to refresh skin mid-day or when washing with a cleanser isn’t an option. This formula features witch hazel to control oil and tighten pores, algae extract to regulate excess sebum production, and grape seed extract and vitamin E to protect skin from free radical damage. Clarifying Toner is recommended as the first step in any Murad acne routine, and as part of Dr. Murad’s Inclusive Health® system of care.


My Thoughts:

So for starters, I replaced the top with a spray nozzle because that is how I prefer to use my toners. I feel you waste more product when you apply it on a cotton ball and then apply to your face. Also, it helps keep it sanitized by being able to easily spray clients’ faces to balance out the pH in their skin before applying makeup. With all the factors that go into throwing off the natural pH in your skin, this helps balance it out and prepare it the best for absorption of the rest of your skincare products but also for a seamless makeup application. If you don’t wear makeup throughout the day, this is a handy little booster to have with you to help with your skin during the day if you’re feeling too dry or too oily, just spritz a couple times about 8ish inches from your face (basically create a misting affect so your face doesn’t look like you just went bobbing for apples) and your face will thank you! The company suggests using this as a first step/cleanser product in your routine but I don’t feel it works the best that way. I feel like I just smear around all the gunk sitting on my face and it doesn’t fully feel clean. Instead, I use my cleanser as normal, THEN I use this right after to balance out the pH in my skin before I apply the rest of the products on my skincare regimen.
