        I bought this set in hopes of helping to clear up my acne on my cheeks and chin, but it didn't really help at all. My skin did feel really good and the products did not dry my skin out as most acne treatments do. It also didn't help my acne and for the price the amount of product you get is really small. I understand everyone has different skin, this just didn't work for me.

        Comments about Murad Anti-Aging Acne Starter Kit:

        I have been wanting to try Murad for a couple years and my husband bought me this kit for Mother's Day! Im 27 and have been struggling with moderate acne for over 10 years. I currently struggle with adult hormonal acne. I've tried almost every acne product on the shelf including Proactive. I have sensitive combination oily skin and most products dry my skin out horribly, which causes me to break out more! I've been using this kit for about 2 weeks now and my face has never looked this clear! The face wash is so gentle and refreshing. I use twice a day. Spot treatment works miracles over night! I even have noticed a difference using the eye cream. I dont love the moisturizer, its a little on the heavy greasy side so I only use at night. Will definitely be buying big bottle of cleanser!!

          Comments about Murad Anti-Aging Acne Starter Kit:

          I've used Proactiv for 3 years and finally decided I deserved a better option that solves more problems than it causes. I spoke to a consultant in an Ulta store who recommended this starter kit after I told her about my dry/flakey, acne prone, sensitive skin, so I gave it a shot. I noticed a difference after using it only 2 times - I didn't realize how red my skin was as a result of using benzoyl peroxide, this kit showed me what my skin is supposed to look and feel like. I've been using it for over a month now. My skin is clearer (even the little under the surface breakouts are clearing), softer, more evenly toned, the low lather on the cleanser doesn't cause dryness, and the moisturizer with SPF is lightweight and doesn't cause breakouts.

          I wish the full sized bottles weren't so expensive, though I think it will be worth the cost in the end.

                • Q:

                  I have very dry skin. I am 18 so I have no wrinkles but I get one-three cystic acne bumps a week along with a few regular small whiteheads. I also have clogged pores around my t-zone that seems to never go away. I was wondering if this product or any Murad product would work for me.

                    If you have been diagnosed with Rosacea I would continue with any prescriptions that your doctor has written for you. But you can use the Correcting Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 15 / PA++ to help soothe, moisturize and reduce redness.

                • Q:

                  I'm seeing a lot of information on the acne clearing effects, but how much is it for anti-aging? Is it just the sun screen as a preventive measure? I am a little older and need something to address lines and firmness along with mild acne.

                    A:

                    Although sunscreen is an amazing anti-aging product we do have more ingredients like Kombucha Collagen Defense®, which is derived from a nutrient-rich Black Tea
                    Ferment and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. We also have Retinol and Glycolic Acid in the serum which accelerate natural cell turnover to improve
                    skin tone and texture.

                • Q:

                  I haven't found the right acne solution and it seems like I've tried everything. Nothing combats my year-round very oily skin. I use the Murad Oil Free Moisturizer that can help acne, but I mainly like it because it helps my oily skin for the majority of the day. I haven't noticed acne improvement. I have purchased the regular acne starter kit but didn't see much difference. Is the anti aging kit stronger? I never remember to use anti aging cream and don't understand how this product helps acne. I had a hysterectomy and am 42, so I don't think I'm menopausal. Will these products be too heavy or greasy? I live near the beach and the humidity is fierce. I get all types of acne except cystic. Please advise!! Thanks.

                    A:

                    Sounds like you don't have any anti-aging concerns. If so I would recommend you stay with the traditional Acne collection. Clarifying Cleanser, Acne Clearing Solution, Clarifying Mask 2x per week, Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15 PA++ and Skin Perfecting Lotion at night.

                  I have an oil T-zone, dry all around and acne prone skin with white heads and blacks and the occasional bad breakouts. I wear makeup everyday. I'm looking for a product that will help me with my acne prone skin and also help me with fine lines and wrinkles that I have around my eyes and on my forehead. Would this product be good for me ? Or should I try the resurgence or something else?

                  I had a hysterectomy 21/2 months ago and my hormones are all over the place. My skin feels so dehydrated and my chin and around the jaw line is breaking out. Would this kit be good to try? I'm desperate to get my skin back to normal and feeling soft again.

                    For night time use we would recommend either Skin Perfecting Lotion, a super lightweight lotion, or Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture which is more hydrating but dries down quickly.
