Murad’s Clarifying Oil-Free Water Gel is suitable for all skin types, but it is especially beneficial for acne-prone skin like me.

It is a lightweight gel designed to intensively moisturize without clogging pores. It contains salicylic acid, also known as BHA, which is an exfoliating acid that can penetrate deep into the pores and remove excess oil and dead skin cells. This helps prevent spots from forming. It also contains Korean pine extract, which helps to balance the skin microbiota (basically the beneficial bacteria on the skin).

An unbalanced microbiota may be another cause of acne/spots. Sounds amazing, right?

Texture wise, it is one of the most elegant gel creams I have tried. It is a thick gel that melts into the skin, instantly plumping and moisturizing. The gel has a silicone feel and can provide a protective layer for the skin. However, I have never encountered any pilling/rolling issues, which is great!

The gel has a light and fresh fragrance that I like. I find that it keeps my skin adequately hydrated throughout the day, which in turn helps my oiliness. Most of the time I like to use salicylic acid in my skin care routine because it helps my acne, so this is a perfect choice for me. ,

result? My skin feels clear, hydrated, balanced and healthy! love it!
