FREE deluxe sample Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15 / PA++ w/any $55 Murad purchase

A two-step blackhead and pore clearing treatment that extracts stubborn impurities from deep within pores and seals pores for the ultimate protection against pore-clogging impurities.

Key Benefits & Ingredients:

  • Volcanic Mineral Clay and Baby's Breath Extract detoxify, drawing out dirt, cellular debris and excess oil, to purify pores and help prevent clogging
  • Oxidation Reversal Complex targets sebum oxidation, a leading cause of blackheads, and the buildup of cellular debris
  • Pomegranate Seed Oil tightens pores and refines complexion
  • Dermatologist developed, tested on people, not animals.


Blackhead and Pore Clearing Duo Includes:

  • Blackhead Remover (1.7 oz.)
  • Pore Refining Sealer (0.5 oz.)
Use Blackhead & Pore Clearing Duo 2-3 times per week as needed.

Step 1 Blackhead Remover: Apply generously to areas prone to blackheads. Leave on for up to 10 minutes. Add warm water and gently massage into skin to exfoliate. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry. Follow with Step 2.

    Comments about Murad Blackhead and Pore Clearing Duo:

    This is honestly a lifesaver. I have the worst pores, they are huge and get clogged very often. If I put this on and use a pore extractor I can see all the gunk it removes. If you have extremely oily skin, this is for you. Personally I try to use this daily, but if you have sensitive skin I would recommend weekly use. Murad never ceases to amaze, definitely worth the price.

            Comments about Murad Blackhead and Pore Clearing Duo:

            This was recommended to me for getting rid of the HUGE black heads I had on my nose and chin. I've tried everything from masks, home remedies, to steamers and pore hooks. Nothing has worked as well as this!! After just the third use, my blackheads were significantly reduced and some were completely gone. My chin was once bumpy from all the blackheads and now it is smooth!! After I apply the blackhead remover (step 1), I leave it on for 10+ minutes. I have found the trick is to not immediately rinse your face afterwards. Instead, I wet my fingers and exfoliate my face for a few minutes before I rinse it off my face. The pore sealer (step 2) is very light and feels great. You only need to use a little bit because a little goes a long way. I always apply moisturizer afterwards and my skin feels soft and super clean.
            I cannot recommend this enough for people with stubborn blackheads who have tried everything else. It worked GREAT for me!!

                I have very large pores and then easily get blackheads. I just started using this product and I can already see it working. My primary areas of concern are my forehead, nose and chin. This product is easy to use and feels great on my skin.

                  The formula is good and I notice a big difference after I use it and the next morning. You do have to stay on top of your skin care as well as this particular treatment (use at least twice a week) or else you will notice your blackheads resurface. It works best if paired with other Murad cleansers and products. The only con, is for the money you spend on this product, I feel the results should last longer

                      I used this product exactly how the directions described. I even set a timer on my phone to start to take off the mask after 10 minutes. I have been using it religiously every two days like the directions say and reapplying step 2 exactly 12 hours later and I see no results. I love the Murad brand but this product just isn't effective for removing blackheads.

                        • Q:

                          I saw someone mention that they used a T-zone Pore Refining Serum. I can't seem to find it on the list of Murad products. Does this product replace the T-zone Pore Refining Serum or am I just not finding the correct product? I am basically looking for a serum for my t-zone, I have oily skin and very noticeable pores!! So I'm looking for a serum I can put on either at bedtime or in the morning and leave on my face, not a product to wash off. I just turned 40 and I really need help in all areas, fine lines, dark spots, oily skin and clogged pores. But I can't use every product Murad carries so I'm trying to find the best combination. Thank you!!!

                            I'm sorry we no longer have T-Zone Pore Refining Serum. We do however have a great new Retinol Youth Renewal Serum that would help with fine lines and even brightening up your skin. As far as the oil I would suggest using Anti-Aging Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 / PA+++ to help regulate.

                            Typically, it is for blackheads and pore congestion. If it's an inflamed whitehead, Dr. Murad recommends Acne Spot Fast Fix as a spot treatment applied 1-3 times daily.
