        This product is AMAZING! I've tried everything for oily/acne prone skin from clinique to proactive plus and nothing has worked until I tried this product. I feel a lot more confident and my skin is finally clear after struggling with acne for 16 years!

            Comments about Murad Acne Starter Kit:

            Let me start off by saying that I do not have severe acne but recently have had a flare up all over my face, esp my forehead which is rare for me. I wanted a quick step-by-step regimen that I could use daily to keep breakouts at bay. This was not the answer. I already tend to have an oily complexion and this made it so much worse. I would wake up in the morning with a layer of grease/oil on my forehead and t-zone area. I used the regimen consistently for about 4 weeks and saw no improvement, instead I was getting worse. I will also say that I started the Murad supplement at the same time and stopped using both at the 4 week mark when I saw no improvements.

            Everyone's skin is different so this may work for others however, I am disappointed to say that it did not work for me.

            I went back to my old routine of using Purpose face wash with my clarisonic and Neutrogena oil free moisturizer but added Clean and Clear persa gel 10 and that is clearing up my skin quickly!!

                  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.

                            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.
