      I was really looking forward to this product because of all the great reviews. I'm sure it's just my skin but this dried out my skin so badly. my skin has never been dry so I'm confused on how to fix the problem.

        Comments about Murad Acne Starter Kit:

        Highly recommend this product for women with an active lifestyle, who workout and sweat. The breakouts on my face would last a long time, 1-2 weeks. I started using this 4 step process and in 2 days they were gone. Step 1-3 everyday, twice a day. I use the 4th product (eye cream) at night. Clears up the breakouts without drying my face out. It also minimizes the breakouts as well and stops them from becoming larger or lasting longer. Well worth the money. I struggled for a long time to clear up, minimize the breakouts, this product is perfect!

                    I'm 19 and I've had moderate acne for years. This product didn't really solve my problem but I think it definitely helped. If you can't find something that is working I would recommend this kit. I washed my face in the morning and night and used the other products at night time.

                          Comments about Murad Acne Starter Kit:

                          I have extremely oily skin. This set of products all together has SAVED my life. If you have oily skin/and or acne I definitely recommend this brand of products.! You will not regret it!!! The cleanser cools your skin making it feel clean and fresh. And the toner really tightens and cleans out your pores. And the oil mattifier moisturizer is the BEST I have ever tried. It really gets rid of the oil and my face feels normal. As In, not overly moisturized, not dry, not oily, just normal.
                          And the best part is, it lasts all day long.
                          I LOVE this.

                              A:

                              My first question would be: in what way is your skin sensitive? Are there certain ingredients that your skin is more sensitive to?

                              The Acne Starter Kit contains products with strong over the counter acne medication which is why people love it so much, they see results. What I recommend for people with sensitive skin is to start off slow. First, just add the moisturizer to your daily routine for 2-3 days. If your skin is doing well with that, then add the cleanser to your daily routine for the next 2-3 days along with the moisturizer. If everything is still looking and feeling good after that, then add in the treatment.

                              Sensitive skin sometimes needs to acclimate itself to new products and starting an entire new regimen with active ingredients can be too much all at once.

                              Yes, you can absolutely use Murad Acne Starter Kit in conjunction with your makeup routine. We recommend seeking makeup formulas that are noncomedogenic (non-pore clogging) and nonacnegenic (non-breakout causing) for best results.

                              A:

                              If you suffer from Hormonal Acne, then you already know that finding the right products and regimen for your skin can be challenging. Treating Hormonal Acne means combatting the over-production of oil (sebum) and skin cells that clog pores and lead to blemishes and breakouts. If you’re only fighting the blemishes that you see, then there will always be more acne that’s waiting to appear beneath the surface of your skin.

                              Murad acne treatment products use the topical acne medication Salicylic Acid. Salicylic Acid is a Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) that penetrates beneath the surface of the skin to the pores and hair follicles where Hormonal Acne forms. Once beneath the skin, Salicylic Acid exfoliates away the debris and dead skin that’s clogging your pores and fights acne-causing bacteria. Your existing acne clears while new breakouts are prevented.

                              To fight Hormonal Acne, you need an acne treatment that works beneath the skin. Murad acne treatment products do exactly that!

                              Murad Acne Complex Skin Perfecting Lotion is a wonderful moisturizer to use both daily and nightly to provide hydration without causing any irritation or exacerbating your acne:

                              During the day, we suggest layering Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15 over it to provide sun protection.

                              Certainly! You can use Acne Spot Fix and Acne Clearing Solution and as needed. Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15 / PA++ is gentle enough for daily use regardless of acne severity. For those with mild acne, Clarifying Cleanser can be used alternately with another non-medicated cleanser.
