“...little/try new things, I always return back to this. It's great on my dry and sensitive skin, and isn't rough or harsh going on like some other cleansers. Definitely worth the price - especially if you look on Amazon!” in 20 reviews

I have used to so many cleansers on my face throughout my lifetime and never did I think I would pay more than $30 for a face wash. I tried this as a sample and fell in love with it and I couldn’t resist subscribing to this product because it’s just everything I look for in a cleanser. I love the texture, how it makes my skin feel during and after washing, and the smell. Highly recommend this face wash. Murad Environmental Shield Essential-C Cleanser #facewash #holygrail #cleanser

Anything murad is Phenomenal this is by far the best vitamin C cleanser I have ever used. You can see results within the 2 or 3 days use. I highly recommend this cleanser. If you have an even skin tone and want to brighten up your face more this the best cleanser to go and get. This has a citrus Smell like a fresh peeled Orange Wasn't harsh at all on my skin which is sensitive.

I was majorly let down by this. The price tag is high but that is meaningless. Whatever is in this facial cleanser it irritated my skin so badly that I broke out in tiny red bumps and patches all over my face and I already deal with redness which I am trying to get away from. So it was negative. It wasn't until I found another cleanser that actually took my makeup off AND reduced redness that I realized this cleanser was aggravating my skin and breaking me out. I do not suggest this facial cleanser if you have sensitive skin or are looking for makeup removal. In fact, I don't suggest this for anyone.

This cleanser smelled super good! Especially, if you like citrus:) I have sensitive skin so for me it’s tricky finding good cleansers. After washing my skin felt very refreshed. I followed up with moisturizer. This cleanser did cause dry spots - cheeks and nose area. Knowing my skin, this is usually how I tell if I will continue using or not. Tried it a few more times and same result.

I love Murad products! They are right up there with the Derma E brand for me. For Ipsy, this sample size is a great size. It does have a strong scent and I am not crazy about super strong scented cleanser. It did make my face feel clean and refreshed and lathers really well. I do not like it as a cleanser to remove makeup with, but it is great as a barefaced cleanser and an in the shower cleanser. When I use this cleanser, I do not use a vitamin C serum because too much on your skin can cause you to break your skins moisture barrier. Which I have done before and it's horrible.

I received a deluxe sample from Ipsy and have been using this for 2 weeks, alternating between Effaclar in the evenings and this at nights. While my face does feel brighter after washing, I do feel dry (tighter than my face should feel). I tried it with my nighttime routine and dumped it, since even with a 5-minute long wash, couldn’t get rid of my make up residue completely. I also knocked off a star because it contains parfum. While it smells lovely, I prefer that as a body spray instead of in my skincare! I’d say the Effaclar (La Roche Posay) beats this out.

I really enjoy this cleanser. The mirobeads gently exfoliate and it also leaves my skin clean without stripping it of moisture. There’s vitamin C in it which helps leave my skin naturally radiant. It also has a light refreshing citrus type scent

I love this cleanser soo much! Murad is, in my opinion, one of the best skincare brands out there! My skin has never looked better than after I started using this essential c cleanser. It smells amazing and feels super gentle. It leaves my skin feeling soft and nourished, never dry! I got my first bottle in an ipsy bag, and since then I continue to buy this product. I love it.

Are you using sunscreen every single day? You need it to protect your skin from UV rays as Vitamin C makes your skin more susceptible to sun damage.

I would say so! My skin tends to act up sometimes, even break out when new products are introduced. This product hasn’t done that.
