            I had a horrible reaction to this because my skin is not bad. I had to go get a facial after and it took about 3 weeks for the blemishes to go away.

                I HAVE BEEN USING THE MURAD LINE FOR ABOUT 15 YEARS NOW AND HAVE ALWAYS RECOMMENDED IT TO OTHERS. i AM SADDENED THAT THIS NEW KIT DOES NOT COMPARE TO THE ACNE COMPLEX KIT AND THAT THE DID NOT LEAVE THE ACNE COMPLEX KIT AS AN OPTION TO PURCHASE. I RECEIVED THIS KIT IN ERROR WHEN I ORDERED THE ACNE COMPLEX KIT. EACH PRODUCT CONTAINS DIFFERENT AMOUNTS OF SALICYLIC ACID, WHICH ARE MUCH LOWER THAN THE PREVIOUS PRODUCTS AND SOME CONTAIN BENZOYL PEROXIDE WHICH IN MY CASE HAS NO EFFECT.i REALLY HOPE THEY BRING THE PREVIOUS OPTIONS BACK OTHERWISE THEY ARE GOING TO LOOSE A LARGE AMOUNT OF USERS

                Comments about Murad Acne Starter Kit:

                I'm a 19 year old guy with oily skin and fighting my T-Zone was incredibly difficult because all of my oil was pretty much packed into my nose for some reason. I used alot of different products and nothing really worked. I started using Murad about a month ago and was pleasantly suprised that within a few days I could tell my skin was getting less irritated and oily. Now my skin looks much better but isn't completely cleared yet. I think I'm going to get the acne clearing kit to save 15 bucks, but, I will tell you, this stuff does work and feels great on your skin.

                      Comments about Murad Acne Starter Kit:

                      I bought this and used it exactly as directed in store and on the packaging. However, while I noted some improvement in a couple areas, overall my acne got worse. I ended up with larger, more inflammed acne. At first I thought it might just be purging, but my old and new breakouts are healing more slowly than before. I guess this just wasn't made for my skin. I will probably exchange it and hope to find something that works better.

                        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.

                                        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.
