        Like the product used it day and night for 2 days and noticed that my skin dryed up pretty quickly. So I am down to just 1 time a day. Have noticed my small acne to diminish and my huge over sided pore go down just a little not as much as I would like but good overall.

        Comments about Murad Anti-Aging Acne Starter Kit:

        I've only been using this product for a little over 2 weeks. I was originally a Proactiv user for many years and it was great. My skin was amazing. Then my skin started changing after 25. It was dry and I developed eczema which does not go well with Proactiv. I have now spent 4 years trying new things to get my skin back to some normalcy. This stuff is nice. After the first day of using it, my skin felt really hydrated. I'm still breaking out but everyday gets a little better. I added the clarifying toner and it's a very nice addition.

          I have suffered from acne breakouts since middle school. It's so frustrating to be nearly 40 and still dealing with this. I tried this product hoping it would curtail a current breakout and I was surprised that I felt a difference in my skin overnight. My skin felt hydrated and soft. This product address my pimples in just a few days, and as I continue using the product I continue to experience good results. I'm considering using Murad as my permanent facial cleaner and toner. In addition to this set, I recommend buying the corresponding toner. Collectively, the starter set and toner provided good results.

                    A:

                    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.

                • Q:

                  I'm only 21, but I always hear it's good to start anti-aging products early on. I have mild hormonal (at least I think it's hormonal) acne with occasional bad breakouts. My skin is combination normal to oily in the summer and normal to dry in the winter. Also, super sensitive. Would this kit work for me?

                    A:

                    This is a great time to start preventative skincare to help keep wrinkles and lines from forming too early. I love this kit because it takes care of acne while providing ingredients that hydrate and help keep skin soft and supple. It also has a SPF 30 in it which is very important as we get older.

                  I haven't really had any issues with my skin until now. I'm experiencing lots of white heads on my nose, light acne on my chin/forehead, and very dull looking skin. Would this kit help reduce the acne/white heads? Or should I use the environmental shield kit?

                • Q:

                  I have been using the starter kit for a week and although I have hormonal acne already. I am starting to notice that I am breaking out with more small and big bumps on my face then before; mainly on my chin, forehead and right cheek. Also I have new bumps that are forming that are mainly big and hurt for a few days then the pain subsides.

                  Is it normal? How long should I use this line before seeing results or trying a new line?

                  I am wondering is this is the best line for me or if I might need to try the regular (stronger) line?

                    A:

                    The ingredients in this kit are very strong. It is possible that it is bringing impurities to the surface all at once that have been underneath your skin. We recommend using the products for at least 2-3 weeks after this time you will see clearer skin all the time.

                  I get bad cystic acne, but not regular acne and I have normal to dry skin. Would this kit help control and reduce redness of cystic acne, as well as not dry out my skin?

                    Typically with cystic acne we recommend seeing a physician as they can best manage this type of deep in the skin acne.
                    That being said, this kit was designed to help with hormonal acne and that can present similar to cystic acne. This kit will not dry out your skin, it is full ingredients to help skin retain moisture while fighting acne.

                  I'm 30 years old and suffer from occasional blemishes on my chin , redness in my cheeks and dry ness. I read some great reviews but am still on the fence if this would be a good product for my issues.

                  I'm also wondering, Does the moisturizer and eye cream have a greasy feel?

                    This kit would be perfect for you! It will address all your concerns.

                    The moisturizer and eye cream are absorbed quickly so you do not have a greasy after feel.
