        Comments about Murad Acne Starter Kit:

        Bought product expecting to have achene at least slow down. Product was way to expensive for only a months supply. After a month my achene hadn't gotten any better. The only thing I liked about the package, was that it came with oil control cream that had spf. THAT worked to keep my oily skin under control but other then that, still have the same amount of achene that I started with. Would NOT recommend to others.

          Comments about Murad Acne Starter Kit:

          I read a lot of reviews on this product line before deciding to buy the starter kit. I was lured in by the promise of clearer skin in 72 hours but unfortunately it was not quite that much of a miracle. It took about 2 weeks before I saw a difference at all. I will concede though that I have SEVERE acne so it is probably a lot more difficult to "cure". It does seem to do a good job at keeping the oil production down but you do have to wash daily to keep it up.

          The cleanser is my favorite, It seems to work the best and even has a pleasant smell (sort of like lemonade). However, I do not care for the mattifying lotion. It smells terrible and doesn't seem to work that well. I found that other mattifying lotions like Tea Tree Oil brand or Clean & Clear work better and are much cheaper. The clearing lotion and the spot treatment work okay but I wouldn't say that they are a miracle treatment by any means. I use the acne clearing solution as a way of drying out my skin when my oil production seems especially bad. Spot treatment doesn't seem to work all that well for me.

          Bottom line: if you have SEVERE acne I would recommend just getting the cleanser and stick with OTC lotions and spot treatments.

                      The first time I use the mural kit I use it before bed. When I woke up the next morning my face with 80% clearer. I was amazed. There was some redness where I used the spot treatment on. But I can handle the redness. As long as the pimples were gone, and most of them were. I'm not use to putting sunscreen on my face so that felt a little oily to me. But my face didn't look oily. Overall I love this.

                            This got rid of my acne but at the same time it really dried out my skin in certain areas. To fix that I just got a better facial cream that was more hydrating! This stuff really works!

                                  Cleanser makes your skin feel cool and clean, not dry. The oil control moisturizer really works well. Generally I'm oily within a few hours of cleansing and this keeps me under control all day.
                                  I've not experienced any breakouts since starting the product and skin is much clearer, pores smaller, skin tone appears much more even. If you are a Proactive user and still not getting results, I would certainly give this a try.

                                      Would I wash my face with the cleanser and then put treatment and then the oil control and then put my foundation and powder on or is that going to make the kit not work?

                                        You can certainly apply foundation in conjunction with this Murad regimen without affecting its efficacy. Yes, that is the correct order of application.

                                        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.

                                      I have very dry skin. I also have lots of acne due to a foundation I use to use. Will this help with clearing and my dry skin?
