      Comments about Murad Acne Starter Kit:

      I expected it to be the size that it came in, because of previous reviews. It is tiny for the price. I do not think that it worked for me. I mainly have combination skin and only get dry skin in the Winter. I don't feel that it did anything for me. It does use salicylic acid which has not worked well for me in the past.

            All of the products work great, but my favorite is the moisturizer it really keeps your skin soft, and protected yet keeps the shiny and oily feeling away all day.

                    Comments about Murad Acne Starter Kit:

                    I'm taking a medication that causes horrible cystic acne around my chin area - this is the second time I've had this experice in two years while taking it.

                    Last time around, Proactiv didn't even touch it. But I was going to try again anyway. My Clairsonic and cleanser weren't making a difference.

                    I have to say, I was skeptical but I'm pretty amazed. After just a day some of the cystic finally broke and eased up, and I'm not getting new breakouts.

                    When the starter kit is up I plan on buying the full sized products. Pricey but worth it - it's even balancing out dark spots from old breakouts.

                    I haven't tried the mattifier yet but I'm really happy with the rest.

                    This product was amazing. I saw results within the first week. It did not irritate my skin or dry it out. It worked better than medication I received from my dermatologist. Try at least the sample box. You won't regret it! :)

                      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.

                                  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.
