        I bought this for my 13 year old daughter after buying several other name brand acne products. None of the other name brand products worked for her. But this one did. Her face is clear of acne and it's very smooth. She loves it and I do too.

              This product hasn't cleared up my skin but it's defin improved. I'm not very good about keeping up with all the steps so it's partoally my own fault. However, I know it works! My skin is much clearer and when it's really clearing up I can tell the difference and itxh like crazy due to the healing process.

              Comments about Murad Acne Starter Kit:

              I bought this kit as a trial since I have never used Murad products before and just recently bought a Clearsonic brush and needed an acne cleanser with out scrub. I have pretty oily skin on the regular but now in winter its a cobination. I thought I was seeing a good result from using the cleanser but after about a week and a half of using it with my Aczone topical treatment, I started to see my skin develop a rash like result in the areas aczone was applied. I haven't had this issue with other acne/salitic acid treatments but I know it can happen. I was dissapointed I cannot use the cleanser any more based on all the positive reviews. It took about a week of not using the cleanser for the rash/raised bumps to go away. It was itchy and made my skin look very uneven in texture.

              On the flip side, the mattifier is great and will use this in the warmer seasons with out a doubt! The on the spot treatment, I felt was a little weak in results.

              I will still reccomend the product but for those that do not use any other perscription acne treatments.

                This is the best acne cleansing system I've ever used. The cleanser doesn't leave my face feeling like it's dry, but instead leaving it comfy and soft. I worried about there being no toner in the kit, but HAVE NO FEAR, step 2 will having you praising it. I was iffy on the "moisturizer" (step 3 - oil control mattifier) the first time I used it, but holy moly I love it. This kit is a blessing and has cleared up my acne. It does exactly what it claims to do. Every single step of the way.

                            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.
