            This product gave me a horrible allergic reaction for 2 weeks after 1 use! Do not use until you test on a small area. Looks like I'm not the only person who has had problems! Be cautious.

            Horrible allergic reaction!!!

            By Melissa

            from Beaverton

            Comments about Murad Acne Control Skin Perfecting Lotion:

            How is Murad able to continue selling this product!!! I ran out of my regular moisturizer so I used this one during my nighttime routine. It was one I got for free in a monthly subscription box. The next morning my whole entire face was swollen, red, splotchy, ITCHY, and sensitized! I'm on day two and it's barely started to clear up. This product is awful. I've never had a reaction to a product before. Even if you don't have a reaction to this at first, I would STAY FAR AWAY from this. Any product that has this many negative reviews has to have problematic ingredients for any one. Ugh, Murad. So disappointing. I thought they were a reputable brand before this.

              Comments about Murad Acne Control Skin Perfecting Lotion:

              I received this moisturizer in a recent FabFitFun box, and fell in love! My skin gets very oily after using most moisturizers, but this one keeps the shine at bay. I love how light and refreshing it feels on my skin. One thing that made me curious about this product is that it seems to have a very subtle scent, almost like coconut milk. No coconut products are listed in the ingredients though! Regardless, I am a fan, and will definitely be purchasing this soon!

              Comments about Murad Acne Control Skin Perfecting Lotion:

              I got this face lotion in my FabFitFun box and I absolutely love it! I use it as a morning moisturizer. It works under just about any makeup product you put over it! Does not make you greasy, but gives you nice glow. Will most definitely be repurchasing it when I run out.

              Comments about Murad Acne Control Skin Perfecting Lotion:

              I don't have any allergies or am usually not sensitive to anything!!! I had started a new medication and thought I was getting a rash on my face and neck because of it.
              But no. It was this after the rash went away after using a rash cream on my face for over a week. I finally went back to this it came in my fabfitfun box. Bam the next morning I started itching and my face blew up swollen and red

                I love this stuff. I got it in my fabfitfun box and After i used it all I had to purchase another one. I feel like I don't get as many breakouts when I'm using this. Not usually one to spend that much money on one product but I think it's worth it.

                  Is this product non-comedogenic? Many of the other products in this line specifically say that they are not, but this one doesn't say anything about it. I know it says oil free, but is it non-comedogenic? Thanks!

                    A:

                    Skin Perfecting Lotion is an amazing oil free moisturizer that can be used at night or under a sunscreen during the day. If you have rosacea and are on prescription medication Dr. Murad always recommends you speak with your physician prior to use.

                • Q:

                  Can I use this before I put my makeup on in the morning? My face is very oily. I can get up in the morning, wash my face, and it will be oily by mid-day. I was wondering if this would help that.

                    This is designed to hydrate the skin and is a great oil-free, lightweight moisturizer. It was designed to minimize the appearance of pores. Try the Skin Smoothing Polish to help minimize the appearance of pores.

                    This product is a moisturizer all on it's own. For deeper hydration you can layer it with another moisturizer. We also recommend using an SPF during the daytime.
