T-Zone Pore Refining Serum dissolves pore-clogging impurities and refines pores while it lifts away dull, dry skin cells to even texture and tone. Glycolic and salicylic acids gently exfoliate to help clear pores and skin perfections. This serum is recommended as a Step 2 treatment in any Murad Pore Reform regimen to clear and tighten pores as part of Dr. Murad's Inclusive Health system of care.

Dermatologist developed. Tested on people, not animals. Formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.
Every day after cleansing and toning, massage a thin layer over face and neck. For optimal results, follow with recommended Murad moisturizer.

    Comments about Murad T-Zone Pore Refining Serum:

    I love this product, I've been using it for at least 10-15 years (think it was called something different when I started using it) after an aesthetician recommended it. When I am diligent about using it - every night before bedtime - I see a significant difference in my complexion -- fresher, cleaner and smoother. It's also one of the best values in skin care -- you use such a small amount, that one bottle can easily last me 6-8 months.

        Only began the trial test...it's been a couple of days but the skin certainly feels smooth, firm and moisturizer is absorbed quickly and does not leave a greasy look or feeling.

          Comments about Murad T-Zone Pore Refining Serum:

          A couple weeks ago I switched from my previous daily moisturizer (which claimed it was "oil-free") to this Serum and it was the best decision EVER. I'd have occasional acne pop up a couple times a month (which was frustrating as a 24 year old) but I haven't had a blemish since! I use this without an additional moisturizer since my skin is on the oily side already and it works like a charm. My pores are smaller, my skin is smoother and even previous blemish marks are disappearing. Highly recommend!

              Comments about Murad T-Zone Pore Refining Serum:

              This serum is jam packed with so many amazing products, my estheticians were floored when I showed it to them. It has an almost fruity scent and a little goes a long way, so the price is great for the amount of product. On top of all that - it works! My pores are clearing and are not as intensely clogged as they were before.

                This is the best thing to ever happen to my skin. It was recommended by the esthetician after a Murad facial. I never want to stop using it. It's managed to control my hormonal acne and make my breakouts virtually non-existent. Love, love, love!!!

                      I have many skin colored bumps (I'm assuming clogged pores) on my forehead and no matter what I try nothing seems to budge them. I have the murad skin smoothing polish, I'm debating buying this serum. will it help unclog my pores and smooth my forehead if I use it along with the skin smoothing polish?

                        A:

                        We recommend seeing a dermatologist for this concern. It could be cause by numerous things and not necessarily clogged pores. If exfoliating with Skin Smoothing Polish is not working then it is best to consult a doctor.

                        It can depend on what your skin goals are. We tend to see more of a difference faster when we use the full regimen. However, you can incorporate our products with your current products and still see a difference.
