Unfortunately, witch hazel wouldn't be witch hazel if it wasn't distilled in alcohol; maybe that's why they changed the ingredients list to include alcohol denat.

It's based on witch hazel but it does indeed contain alcohol its all I smell when I open the bottle. It doesn't say so on the ingredient list on the Sephora website but on the bottle it is the fourth ingredient and its listed as alcohol denat., which is why I will be returning this product.

No, I don't think it helps with scarring. It's more for controlling oil (and great at it without over-drying). I would however recommend Murad's Post-Acne Spot Lighening Gel, I've used DDF's hyperpigmentation treatment and it's too strong. It's good for spot treatments, but Murad's is gentle enough for an all-over application. It's done wonders for my scars.

Absolutely!! I have really sensitive skin that is acne prone, and changes with the seasons and weather. I use the Murad acne fighting kit which is an amazing value and the products work more amazingly together.

I have similar skin to you. It does not make me break out.
Actually it made some T-zone blemishes fade overnight.
The soothing cucumber and calendula are excellent for sensitive skin.
imo acne in T-zone comes from diet and environment. (Dairy and over-moisturizing) I still eat cheese and smoke a cigarette though!
My allergy to Orris Root (in frgrance, haircolor, cosmetics) shows up as smaller rash like acne alon my chin, cheek bone or hairline. Good Luck! Give Murad a try. I like they are a company dedicated to skincare, made in USA, and a good price.

Great for oily skin and removing dirt and makeup you missed while washing. Might be too harsh for those who have normal skin because it does tend to have this refreshing tingle/burn at first. Highly recommended for those with oily skin that are looking for a worthy toner.

I have the same type of skin and so far i highly recommend it. It appears to be very gentle. There is a tingle, but it has witch hazel, which is gentle. I have not had any breakouts from using it. Someone had recommended that when you do breakout to put a dab of it on the pimple for 5-10 mins and it goes down...seriously I've done it when I first purchased it and it works! So yes, you should take a chance and try it. If it doesn't work out, you can always return it.

It is supposed to be for oily or acne prone skin. I have really sensitive acne prone skin and I love this product! As I've said before though, the products in the line work the best together, and if you're looking to spend less mony, the kit is an amazing value, the normal size toner is definately a must because the kit only comes with a sample, and you will want the normal size toner, believe me.

The toner is great for cleaning and setting the right ph and all that, but to kill the whiteheads, you should use the acne spot treatment, that dries them up pretty quick. I use the gel cleaner, the toner, the treatment gel, then hit the zits with the spot treament cream, then the moisturizer. The zits will be noticeably reduced by that night. Get them again at night with the spot treatment and they will be almost gone in the morning. I also use a concealer with Salicylic acid during the day.

The problem with acne is the oil that mixes with dirt and therefore causes your whiteheads. Yes, this toner definitely helps in controlling oil but I would also recommend using a clay mask, preferably one with sulphur to really get deep down to the root of the problem.

Yes I also use this toner within my skin care regimen and have minimal whiteheads. More important though is for you to add a salicylic acid cleanser with at least 2% salicylic acid or a benzoyl peroxide cleanser. Benzoyl peroxide is useful for mild cases of whiteheads. It can also help to prevent formation of more whiteheads. Salicylic acid helps to break down whiteheads and blackheads and reduces the shedding of cells lining the follicles of the sebaceous glands.

Murad has a hydrating toner that you might want to check out if you have problems with dry skin. However, if you're really looking to stick with the acne line then if you have a really good moisturizer that works for you after applying this you should be good! It's definitely not the most drying moisturizer I've tried and I've found that it actually helps exfoliate away dry flakes if you have problems with that.

I used to use proactiv and it would make my skin very dry. After I switched to Murad, my skin is softer and it doesn't dry it. I would really recommend this product

Yes, I've used proactive in the past and it did nothing for me but dry my skin out completely.

I would say this is harsher than proactives toner but definitely more oil reducing in my opinion. Hope that helped

Question
spray bottle?
i have tried the other murad toners that come in spray bottles and i like how hygienic it is not to have to rub a cotton pad all over my face on top of the acne. it makes me feel like i am spreading the bacteria around. i notice that this is the only murad toner that does not come in a spray bottle. is there a reason for this? would it be a bad idea to put it in one of my old spray bottles from a different murad toner?

I have a feeling it would really irritate your eyes, nose and mouth if it got anywhere near them. It has a really cooling, tingly effect which would probably REALLY hurt.

This toner is too thick to be used in a spray bottle and you would not want it anywhere near your eyes or it will burn really bad.

I really wouldn't want to spray on your face. It contains menthol and if you were to get this on your eyes I'm sure it would burn. If I even get this too close it makes my eyes water. If you're washing your face before using this I wouldn't worry too much about spreading bacteria around (besides, bacteria spreads naturally anyway).
