    Comments about Murad Acne Control Skin Perfecting Lotion:

    This lotion was recommended to me to as a smooth, light-weight, moisturizing solution for my dry skin. While it felt and worked well enough at first, after later uses my face became red, bumpy, severely itchy, and so dry it felt scaly. I had an allergic reaction to this product and I've never had an allergic reaction to makeup or lotion before. If you have sensitive skin or dry skin, be careful with this one.

                Comments about Murad Acne Control Skin Perfecting Lotion:

                I was really excited to try this lotion I read so many great reviews but it was not for me. It really irritated my skin and now I have a really red bumpy rash all over my face and it itches like crazy. I only used the lotion twice. I never imagined this would happen since I have never in my life experienced any allergies or allergic reactions to anything. I will be returning this product and not purchasing any of the Murad products in the future.

                  Comments about Murad Acne Control Skin Perfecting Lotion:

                  I used this moisturizer when I was a teenager with more severe acne and didn't have too good of luck with it, but now that my acne is mild and less frequent I really love this product. It's definitely not a miracle but it evens out my skin tone, hydrates effectively, and most importantly does NOT contribute to breakouts. It's gentle and I really think it would be great for all skin types. I use it at night over the top of the acne clearing solution and in the mornings I opt for the Oil Control Mattifyer because of the SPF and this regimen seems to work really well for me. I have combo/oily skin for reference. Hope it works for you guys too!

                          Skin Perfecting Lotion is an amazing oil free moisturizer that can be used at night or under a sunscreen during the day. If you have rosacea and are on prescription medication Dr. Murad always recommends you speak with your physician prior to use.

                        Can I use this before I put my makeup on in the morning? My face is very oily. I can get up in the morning, wash my face, and it will be oily by mid-day. I was wondering if this would help that.

                          This is designed to hydrate the skin and is a great oil-free, lightweight moisturizer. It was designed to minimize the appearance of pores. Try the Skin Smoothing Polish to help minimize the appearance of pores.
