        I was introduced to this beauty by an Ulta rep and I can't thank her enough. Yes the price is crazy high but for everything it has done to my adult acne combination skin I owe her many thanks. When ever I see a new pimple coming in I zap it with the Murad Spot treater than follow up with this. Within 2 days I see a dramatic reduction in the size of the pimple and the redness. Also this heals skin fast.

          Comments about Murad Advanced Acne & Wrinkle Reducer:

          I am in my 30s and was still breaking out on a daily basis, even though I'm starting to get those lovely little wrinkles around my eyes. My old products weren't cutting it anymore (mostly because they're made for teenagers). I was incredibly frustrated and started losing confidence (sounds cliche, but it was true *sigh*). Thought I'd give this a shot, despite the high cost (I was used to buying neutrogena) and it is totally worth it. I started noticing a difference in the first week. My skin, now about a month and a half later, is acne-free, smooth and soft. I don't even use concealer anymore. I do still get a few blackheads and pimples every once in a while, but they're small and easy to get rid of, which wasn't the case for my skin before. Definitely recommend along with the Murad anti-blemish and wrinkle face wash and moisturizer.

            Comments about Murad Advanced Acne & Wrinkle Reducer:

            I used this product nightly before bed, and I used it about 3 weeks. I had also been using the skiing perfecting moisturizer with it. The moisturizer I used a few weeks longer though. I have adult acne and always have, and sometimes products that worked in the past will stop working. I chose this product because my brother had used this line...it worked for him. I am not sure if some of the acne was from my skin purging, but my acne got worse. A lot around my mouth which is unusual for me and cheeks. The acne would get worse and larger the more I used it. I also put this product on my neck, and I developed acne there and a rash. I read a few reviews, and began wondering about these products. My acne got worse a week after using the skin perfecting lotion, and once adding in the acne and wrinkle product...even worse. I have stopped using it for 2 days, and I immediately began clearing up. I will go back to philosophy's resume me product. I was very disappointed, but I am allergic to many things and obviously these products had something in them (not the retinol).

                I have acne prone skin and am also concerned about a few fine lines on my forehead. This product was effective in clearing my skin but I haven't noticed a difference in the fine lines. I have combination skin. I was using this product on my whole face but it dried out my skin so now I only use it on the areas that are prone to breakout like along my hair line and nose. I use this am and pm. I do like this product for acne but I don't think I would buy it again due to price.

                      A:

                      This product was designed to help with hormonal acne. Over the counter products typically do not affect cystic acne as it lives deep within the skin so we always recommend seeing a physician to treat it.

                      A:

                      This is different in a few key ways. It has new advanced hyaluronic acid technology which helps your skin to retain more moisture for a longer period of time. We added a botanical complex of Watermelon Rind, Lentil, and Apple Extracts to offer instant plumping and smoothing as well as long-term results. The consistency has also changed to a smoother, silkier texture.
