            Comments about Murad Acne Control Acne Clearing Solution:

            The back of this product says "96% of users saw clearer skin in 72 hours" after that I was sold! I was going through a really bad cystic acne breakout, cause still unknown, and needed something from a good brand and product.
            I can 100% say this did NOTHING for my skin, in fact it made the issue WORSE and caused more breakouts. I used it religiously 2 times a day for 2 weeks and saw my skin turn from awful to horrific.
            The product dried my skin out and caused more pimples to breakout in places I have never had a breakout in. The only positive thing about this is that it goes on matte. You can't use it alone though, you NEED a good moisturizer with it in order keep to dry flaky skin to a minimum.
            I will never buy this product again.

              I use this product morning and night and I'm not entirely sure if it's working because I use so many other products and acne products on my face but I still use it. And something seems to be doing the job. Has a nice little scent to it and absorbs into the skin very quickly. I bought it while it was on sale so that's a plus.

              Have been using for a few weeks now but I haven't really seen results which is a bummer. I really wanted to see results but this product is a miss for my skin. I have dry sensitive skin by the way and it doesn't over dry so that's is the only thing I like le about this

                    Does this help with dark acne scars/hyperpigmentation?

                      A:

                      If you are more concerned with acne scars and pigmentation I would suggest using Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum. This should be applied at night all over followed with a nighttime moisturizer. But remember to be extra consistent with sunscreen use while using this product. The only contraindications would be pregnancy or nursing.

                  • Q:

                    Would this product work to clear under-the-skin clogged pores or milia, or is the spot treatment a better solution for these concerns?

                      A:

                      Acne Clearing Solution would be better for clogged pores and will help to move the milia up closer to the surface and eventually it can break through. The Rapid Relief Acne Spot Treatment is for more inflamed breakouts.

                    Does this help with acne scarring too? Or are there other products that can help with that?

                      A:

                      Acne Clearing Solution does exfoliate your skin so it would help to lighten post acne hyperpigmentation. We also have a Post Acne Spot Lightening Gel that when used consistently and proper application of sunscreen people have had great results.
