Comments about Murad Acne Starter Kit:

I thought this seemed like a good deal as I had heard good things about Murad. The system in itself was not worth it to me. The only thing I liked was the spot treatment.

Comments about Murad Acne Starter Kit:

I used to even out my skin and control the oil. I did like the cleanser felt like it had peppermint oil in it so it gave a cooling effect. But the mattifying-step 3 was not effective longer than 30 min and I was oily again

      Comments about Murad Acne Starter Kit:

      I was so excited to get this because I have struggled with acne. The first two days of using this were amazing; in just one day I could see that I didn't have as much readiness and my pimples were half the size. After the third day when I woke up I couldn't open my eyes very well and when I looked in the mirror my eye were so swollen. This has happened to me with other acne medication I got from the derm. I really wish I could have still used this because it really helped to clear up my skin :(. Over all if you have sensitive skin this is a must avoid, if not I would say this would be perfect

              • Brand Expert

                A:

                The Environmental Shield kit is designed to help lighten dark spots and protect skin from sun damage. It was not designed to help with acne. If acne is your number 1 concern then this is the best kit for you.

            • Q:

              Should I only use what is in this set or should I add other things like a toner, moisturizer, or anything else? Also, will this fade scars from previous acne?

                A:

                Yes, you can add additional items to your routine. This kit does contain a day moisturizer and you can add a nighttime one like Skin Perfecting Lotion. http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=prod2082369
                It's a very lightweight lotion that helps to balance skin.
                To help fade dark spots left from acne we recommend Post-Acne Spot Lightening Gel.

            • Q:

              I am 21 years old and have been struggling with acne since middle school. I've tried several drug store cleansers but nothing works. I use to have extremely oily skin but after switching to all oil free products that problem has mostly gone away but the pimples are still there. I never have had a point where my skin was clear. Never. I mostly just break out on my cheeks and chin. So my questions are A) is this oil free? and B) Do you think this would work best for my acne or would the anti-aging acne kit be better?

              • Brand Expert

                A:

                Yes, this kit is oil free.
                My answer depends on whether you fell your skin is dehydrated. Oil and water are not the same so sometimes we can take care of our oily issue and then have some dry, flaky patches.
                If you think your skin is properly balanced then this kit would work great for you.
                If you think you are dehydrated then try the Anti-Aging Acne Kit.
                I have oily skin but get really bad surface dryness so I use the Anti-Aging Acne Kit.
