    Comments about Murad Acne Complex Kit:

    This is about the worst product-set I've ever used in treating my occasional acne outbreaks. No, I take that back; it is not "about the worst". It is the worst. Not only did it not clear up my breakouts, inflaming the ones that I already had, but new breakouts never stopped. Additionally, it made my skin so raw, dry, and red that it only exacerbated the problem. The skin on my face hurt for weeks. I kept hanging in there, hoping it would get better, when all it did was get worse. I think the worst offender in the package was the serum, but it's hard to know for sure. Based on this experience, I doubt I will ever try another Murad product again.

      Comments about Murad Acne Complex Kit:

      "Reduces blemishes in 4 weeks"...not for this girl. I tried two different lines of Murad products in the past several months, neither of which were effective at all in clearing my moderate-severe adult acne. The products felt pretty decent on the face, but there was very little, if any, improvement from using these highly expensive products (in very small bottles for the price!). Don't be fooled by the PR - these products may work OK for very mild acne, but they won't put a dent in anything more than that. Save your money on a better product!

      murad

      By no more acne nancy

      from Palmdale ca

      Comments about Murad Acne Complex Kit:

      I bought this product about 2 months ago and it made me breakout worse than when I started using it. I knew my skin was going to go through a purge first so I kept using it regardless. I am so glad I stuck to it , my skin looks better than ever. The skin perfecting lotion works wonders.

      Great Product

      By Jess

      from Claremont, California

      Comments about Murad Acne Complex Kit:

      I began using this product after getting a facial at massage envy. They sell the Mirad there and they recommended this product for me to use. It has worked wonders on my skin! I used to get dry patches around my cheek area that left some pretty ugly scarring so I started getting facials in order to help the scarring. I started using the acne treatment and I have not gotten any new dry patches! I had been getting them consistently until I started using this product. Now, the kit at massage envy does come with a 5th product, that mask. The mask is amazing! If you have a pimple, the mask will make it much easier to get rid of. The gel also can burn a little at first but it will go away after a few tries. It is an amazing product and I definitely recommend it. People have even noticed a HUGE different in my skin!

      only kit that has worked

      By Janet A.

      from San Mateo, ca

      Comments about Murad Acne Complex Kit:

      I've used every acne product out there including proactive and nothing worked I still had breakouts. My acne was not severe but I use a lot of foundation which have me a good amount of breakouts around my chin, cheekbones and jaw area. Started using murad kit 3 weeks ago and there is a significant improvement . I use it in the morning and at night with my clarasonic brush . Can't wait to see the results in two months .

      The only thing I would advise is that u keep using it because when you first start the first two weeks your skin breaks out even more but that's normal . By the 3rd week you will see a big difference

        Comments about Murad Acne Complex Kit:

        I bought this kit, because for years i have been using the perfecting lotion and it has worked wonders for my skin, so i thought why not try the whole kit? i have been using this for over 2 months, and i have broken out sooooooooo bad, that i had to make an appt with my dr. i have read were it is suppose to "purge" the skin but who has time to wait until your skin "purges"?and i have a hard time believing that it truly purges the skin. i have to work and cannot present myself in public looking like a hormonal teenager (i'm 33)!!! i'm extremely disappointed with this.i have quit using the system except for the prefecting lotion and i am slowly clearing up.

        Comments about Murad Acne Complex Kit:

        I've struggled with acne since I was 12, and after 11 years of trying everything on the market, I found something that works. I have combination skin, oily forehead with a dry chin area. Other products have made my dry skin worse or didn't seem to work. I have gone through the purging phase and those bumps are fading quickly. I see progress every morning, and that's really encouraging. We all react differently to different products, for example: Benzoyl Peroxide makes my skin dry, itchy, and I break out in hives. But this Salicylic Acid system has really done the trick.

            Comments about Murad Acne Complex Kit:

            Everyone has different skin and different reactions to products, but I had to write this review because these are in all honesty the WORST products I have ever tried. I don't know if it was one of the products in particular or the combination of them all, but I had a horrific purging that went beyond acne. I had heard that the skin purges a bit when new products are introduced to the skin, (it even warns about this in the pamphlet given in the kit) so I tried not to be alarmed when a few zits began to make themselves known on my face. BUT then my cheeks got huge welt-like sores on them that lasted weeks. I was so embarrassed at work. My co-workers noticed, and told me to get off it right away, but I wanted to stick with it and wait it out. I felt like if I could get through the purge stage, I would be free, but the purge stage didn't end...after nearly a month, I tossed it and my face scarred terribly. Basically, I paid for pain, embarrassment, and acne scarring!

              I've been using this for 3 days and my whole face is red and painful! I am going to try using it without the gel and see if it helps. I also have more pimples. NOt sure if it is because it is working but my face hurts!!!

                Comments about Murad Acne Complex Kit:

                I've been using this for about 7 weeks, hoping it would start working, but no luck. I am so happy for the people that this has worked for, but it doesn't seem to be the case for me :'( I am 24 with adult/hormonal/cystic acne, and I agree with the other reviews that this just made my skin worse. I entered the purging period about week 2 and it hasn't ended. I have more tiny white bumps all over my skin and my acne now is so painful. Like, it hurts to smile because it's so bad on my cheeks and jawline. The only plus side is that the cystic acne are easier to extract, but it's like I have 5 cystic pimples rather than just my normal 2. My skin is just so uneven now and I'm even more embarrassed to be in public. I don't know what to do because I'm desperate for clear skin and I've read it took some people months to see their skin improve... If you have acne, anythings worth a try. It has worked for some people, and I genuinely wish that it works for you. If you do try it, just don't go in with high expectations because it may not work.

                *I used the cleanser with my clarisonic, which was a little harsh the first day, but feels good and cooling. It did do a good job of cleaning my skin. I purchased the acne toner to follow cleansing, which burned the first few days and then got better. It felt good, but didn't shrink my pores that well. The exfoliating gel burned bad for 2 days for me and still burns on my pimples. The spot treatment really didn't do anything for me. The lotion was nice and light, but didn't moisturize enough compared to how dry my skin got. I used a little bit of grapeseed oil under my eyes and around my mouth to ease the dryness. All of the products smell fine and feel like they are working, but they leave my face shiny and still aren't making improvements in my acne.
