    Murad is rather expensive in my opinion, but worth investing in, have found this product/brand to be very effective after wasting money on other expensive ineffective product. Would recommend to anyone struggling with acne.

      Comments about Murad Skin Smoothing Polish:

      The package indicates this should be used 2 - 3 times a week. It is supposed to minimize pores, but it did not do exactly what I expected. It left my nose clean, shiny and grainy instead of smooth. I only use it once a week. I'm also a little concerned about the microbeads because I've heard they don't always break down.

            I'm always hesitant about buying scrubs since I have cystic acne prone skin, but this stuff is amazing. I've used it every other day since I received it and no breakouts. It's buffing away my old scars too. My skin feels wonderful after. Love this product

              My brothers fiancée recently left me with a small sample bottle of this product. I started using it in the shower daily. I smooths out my skin and my acne scars have faded too. It smells good is very lightweight and you do not need very much to apply to your face. I have used the 3.5 ounce bottle for about 2 weeks everyday. It is a mirical worker!

                      I have a beauty regime and always enjoy trying new products to keep my skin from getting use to the same products. I use this product 3-4 times a week depending on how congested my face may seem. This does wonders for my pores I have drastically seen them get smaller. After every use my face feels light and uncontested from all the oils clogging the pores. I will defiantly continue to use this product.

                          Skin Smoothing Polish will exfoliate and help the whitehead come to the surface however it does not have acne medication in it. To help eliminate whiteheads we recommend Clarifying Mask, Item #: 2082346, or Acne Clearing Solution, Item #: 2275277.

                          A:

                          It depends on how sensitive your skin is; it is a mechanical exfoliation and if you massage it too vigorously into the skin it can be over stimulating. Another option might be Murad's Transforming Powder. Item #: 2278741
                          This has a very gentle mechanical exfoliation and relies on enzymes as well. Enzymes are one of the most gentle options for exfoliating.

                        I didn't see a moisturizer paired with this product, may I use the collagen moisturizer since I have normal/ oily skin regularly. But after the shower and in the winter I am dry, usually I don't need a moisturizer but I should use one, and a collagen would be benifical :)

                          You may use your favorite moisturizer after using this product. Dr. Murad believes the key to ant-aging is hydration and recommends you use a moisturizer morning and night every day. For times when you need less hydration use a light weight moisturizer with an SPF daily. For times when you are drier we recommend Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture. http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod2390225

                          Skin Smoothing Polish contains micro-polishing jojoba beads to deeply exfoliate the skin. Those with very sensitive skin and rosacea might find the highly mechanical exfoliation to be a bit stronger than they desire. I would recommend Transforming Powder http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod11161035 for someone with sensitive skin. It also contains jojoba beads for exfoliation however they are a much milder formulation.
