    Comments about Murad Acne Control Skin Perfecting Lotion:

    I received this product in my FabFitFun box and I have never been more in love. For years I've had trouble finding a face moisturizer that wouldn't make my skin more oily or make it break out even more. This lotion doesn't make you feel greasy after using it and it has never broke me out!! This product has been a live saver and I will definitely be buying it again!!

      Comments about Murad Acne Control Skin Perfecting Lotion:

      I use high-end stuff (ZO, Skinceuticals, etc) with moderate success, meaning it works ok for a few weeks then BLAM, a zit or six. I received this lotion in a Fab, Fit, Fun box and it has changed my life. My doc was doing electrolysis on my face and said "remind me again what you're using (meaning what I've sold you) on your skin". I went through the (AM regiment) cleanser (ZO), Vitamin C (Revisions 30%), ZO Glycogent, ZO 50SPF face lotion and (PM regiment) ZO Acnetrol and Tretinoin .1%, every other night. I added this in between the Glycogent and SPF in the morning, and alternate nights instead of the Tret, My acne is GONE, my poors have tightened up, and my face hasn't been this zit-free in years (I'm 51 and currently on Bio-HRT, which should help with zits, but NO)

      Changed My Skin

      By Mandy

      from Austin Texas

      Comments about Murad Acne Control Skin Perfecting Lotion:

      I absolutely am baffled by this product. I've tried hundreds of products to try and get my oily skin under control. I can shower and within two hours my face is covered. I used to keep t-shirts in my passengers seat to wipe my face off every hour because it was so bad. I tried everything I could think of and some things helped but nothing worked until I tried this. From the first two days I tried it my skin is no longer oily! It feels plump and hydrated and I haven't had to blot my face a single time in the weeks since I started it. I don't use any other products except for a gentle cleanser and this also got rid of all my acne! I've had one pimple in two weeks. For those struggling with oily skin that don't think there is a solution just try this. It's expensive but a little goes a long way and it was an answer to my prayers. I'm a life long customer now.

        Comments about Murad Acne Control Skin Perfecting Lotion:

        I was nervous about using this based on the reviews of it causing breakouts and rashes and exacerbating rosacea because I have very sensitive skin and rosacea. This lotion came in my FabFitFun box this spring, so I decided to try it.

        It does slightly burn if you have just exfoliated and use the lotion, but that is the only time I've found it to burn. And frankly, if you use this morning and night, you don't need to exfoliate as often. I've noticed my rosacea is less noticeable in the mornings when I use it morning and night. And after only a week and a half of using it, the blackheads on and around my nose were at least cut in half.

        I've used this product for almost a month now and it has never caused breakouts, never exacerbated my rosacea, and has almost eliminated the blackheads. I use it in combination with a sensitive skin face wash (and wash with a wash cloth for a more mild exfoliation), and the Navan TrueClear supplement. It's definitely my new favorite lotion!

        Gave me a rash

        By Jill

        from USA

        Comments about Murad Acne Control Skin Perfecting Lotion:

        Like others in these reviews, this stuff gave me a rash. After I put it on, it sat on top of my skin and made me look greasy all day long. My skin is not sensitive at all so I was surprised when my skin got overly dry, red, and scaly the next day. Patch test before using!!

        really works

        By Jenna

        from Renton

        Comments about Murad Acne Control Skin Perfecting Lotion:

        I received this in my Fabfitfun box and I used it a couple of times. Finally I found something that actually does what it says. I workout everyday and break out alot under my chin and jaw line. I used it at night before I go to bed and I have noticed the next couple of mornings that there wasn't much breakouts then usual. I just wish it wasn't so expensive for a little bottle.

          Comments about Murad Acne Control Skin Perfecting Lotion:

          This is the only product that has ever given me a problem. I have combination skin with an extremely oily t-zone. The first couple days using this product were fine with no real difference. I started noticing my skin would burn when I applied my normal masks and night cream. Even my normal serums burned. My makeup was looking severely cakey with ENLARGED pores, dry/scaly patches and even a rash on my upper lip. Immediately after I stopped using this, my skin started to go back to normal. I even felt that I was getting more oily throughout the day with this lotion. It is probably the retinol in it. If you're using this, PLEASE WEAR SUNSCREEN!

            I have been using this for a while now and I have to say it's the best lotion ever. This is not the type of lotion on your worst dry skin days, but it really improved the overall look and feel of my skin if I use it twice a day. It helps heal acne scars and heals pimples fast.

            Great product, not packaged correctly.

            Comments about Murad Acne Control Skin Perfecting Lotion:

            I have been using Murad Skin Perfection Lotion for many years. It's a great product. The problem this last time was the product had been packaged in 2 boxes. The interior box was for the correct product. The box stated it was an Acne Moisturizer which is not what I wanted. I had to get a sales person to help as my normal product seemed out of stock. We found that an additional box had been placed over the normal skin perfecting lotion, why I haven't a clue. It was obviously shipped from Murad that way. Other than a total mix up in that respect, it's a great moisturizer.

              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.

              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.
