I love this product!! I'm 26 but I noticed an "expression" line on my forehead and I wanted to really treat my acne but not set myself up for winkles in the future by over drying my skin. I use Murad's Adult acne line, along with other products depending on my needs. I've had a lot of different moisturizers, I usually look for ones that focus on oily skin or acne prone skin that are matte and have SPF. I hear SPF can actually be worse for your skin at night (obviously it's unneeded at night anyway) and I had not yet found a moisturizer I was crazy about but I had this lotion lying around-lotion can make my face shiney easily-I don't have dry skin by any means but it's not really oily either. It's pretty normal but I still get acne. I've only been using this for a few nights but even after the first night-when I woke up my skin looked SO much better! It looked very even and seemed to have an inner glow I've never seen before in my skin. I had no redness around my nose or anywhere, redness isn't really an issue, I just have a little that is easily covered by make up but it was nice not to need concealer near my nose. My face looked SO smooth and it didn't feel greasy at ALL, just clean, smooth and very even. It's VERY light moisture so I imagine it's not for very dry skin, but it's GREAT for my skin. I also havn't woken up yet with any new pimples-which can happen, especially this week in my cycle. I've NEVER seen my skin look as good as it did-I have a lot going on in my routine and use a lot of other products-but once I added this it made a HUGE difference. I didn't even know the very little redness I had would go away so easily and I can't really describe all this product does-it just makes a lot of little problems go away-and I think it does make my pores look much smaller which I've used a lot of different products for but the little help of this lotion makes a HUGE difference. Murad is expensive, and because all skin is different, I'd recommend trying to get a sample of ANY skin product first before buying it, but I HIGHLY recommend this product.
I was really excited to try this lotion I read so many great reviews but it was not for me. It really irritated my skin and now I have a really red bumpy rash all over my face and it itches like crazy. I only used the lotion twice. I never imagined this would happen since I have never in my life experienced any allergies or allergic reactions to anything. I will be returning this product and not purchasing any of the Murad products in the future.

I know there's a lot of reviews where people are having allergic reaction issues but this product has changed my skin for the better, I've been using it for almost a year now and it keeps my skin balanced and clear. I apply in it the morning and at night after cleansing and toning my face, the scent is pleasant, it absorbs nicely into my skin and doesn't leave a sticky or slick feeling on my face.
Itchy and Swollen from Atlantic City, NJ
I have been a consistent and loyal Murad consumer for the last three or four years. I have never had any issue with any of their products until now. Within hours of putting this on my face, I broke out in hives. My chin area started getting very itchy and then I noticed hives on my hands and wrists (as I usually rub excess product into my hands). Eventually, the rest of my face was swollen and itchy. It took nearly a week for my face to return to normal. At first I wasn't sure what caused such an intense allergic reaction, so I stopped using all my face products and reintroduced them one by one. When it came time to reintroducing this product, my face once again became swollen and itchy within hours of application. Then I started reading the reviews for this and noticed that so many others had the exact same thing happen to them. I don't know what is in this product that isn't in any of the other products I normally use, but you should definitely stay far away from this lotion. Murad needs to stop selling this and figure out why so many people are having similar reactions to this product. At the very least, there needs to be a huge warning on the label instructing people to do a patch test. I just figured because I hadn't had any issues with their other products that this would be okay too. NOPE!

I really found the perfect moisturizer for me. I have sensitive acne-prone skin so I was skeptical. I started off with just using this at night since it was my first time using any retinol containing products. It immediately sinks into your skin, and my face felt instantly hydrated. I didn't have any reaction so I continued to use it in the morning with great results. I also have oily skin and noticed that my oil buildup throughout the night and day was dramatically decreased. For oily control and maintaining a healthy balance of moisture I give this 5 stars!!!
jja from Philadelphia PA
Use this every morning. Goes great with the Skin Perfecting Lotion. People ask me what foundation/concealer I have on, and I do not use any of those products-just the Murad and Lotion. Does perfect skin.
Katie from Portland
The name of this product is confusing to many. This is just an oil free moisturizer, nothing else. It will not treat your acne. This is a wonderful moisturizer, super expensive, but lightweight, creamy, doesn't clog pores.
Because this doesn't have hyaluronic acid it is great to pair with (drying) acne treatments.
Maleigha from Hawaii
I would describe my skin as normal/dry with acne. I do not have extremely dry skin but my skin does better with hydrating skin products. I used this product because it was suppose to have the right amount of hydrating elements but also removing oil that causes acne. I used this product for two days and I have never had my skin become so dry. My skin is red and my jaw, chin and cheeks are covered in huge dry patches that I have never experienced before. I am in shock! I have only used it twice and my skin is awful.

Made me break out with tiny little numbs on my face. Also smelled a little off in my opinion.
QueenMari.E from Joplin, MO
I love the feel of this on my face. It feels super light and not heavy feeling. It did keep me hydrated in all the portions of my face that needed it, but made my other areas such as my T-zone, cheeks, and eyelids very oily. I think this face moisture would be good with someone who has dryer skin problems.
Mlramsey121 from Cincinnati, OH
I have searched and searched for a good lotion that doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy but actually hydrates. I tried this on a whim and I love it. It soaks in nicely and leaves my skin hydrated but not slick or "wet" feeling.
I love the retinol in it to help improve my skins appearance over time.
I layer on Cover Girl + Olay Simply Ageless foundation which has Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C for a nice, natural look but one that evens my skin tone. Love the results of these two products together!
Michelle from NJ
If you properly clean your face prior to application, this is the absolute best moisturizer out there. Believe the hype.
PrettyKritty from UT
Moisturizing without making my skin oily. Great for my cystic acne and large pores. This is absolutely life-changing!
ISpendTooMuchMoney@Ulta from Chicago, IL
Been using Murad's Skin Perfecting Lotion for years now. For most of the year in Chicago weather, it's light but still hydrating enough for my oily-combination skin. For the winter, I like to use something else that's a little thicker than this. Never gave me breakouts. My boyfriend has normal skin and he also loves this (he hates any moisturizers where he can feel it sitting on the skin)! I wouldn't recommend this for anyone with dry skin.
Haley from Tennessee
This helps moisturize my dry skin and it smells delicious!!
Natca from Minot
I love Murad however this is the only lotion that he caused me to breakout. I used it for a week a developed small bumps across my forehead and cheeks. Unfortunately I had to return this product. Since I stopped using it, my face has been clear. I'll just stick to the Murad Anti Aging Moisturizer (Acne Prone Skin)
Carole from Oregon
I used this every morning layered over a toner, vitamin c serum and it's so lightweight and comfortable even with multiple products! I do also notice less breakouts which is always a win!
Lisam from Ny
I'm a allergic to this product.
Nutmeag91 from New York, NY
So many people loved this product Which is why I wanted to try this product, but it gave me an allergic reaction. This past weekend, I tried this lotion and it's the only thing that changed in my daily routine. I broke out with a rash all over my face and neck. It burns and itches so badly. I would be very cautious when using this. It works wonders for my friend, so I just want to caution people of possible side effects.
Leah from Seattle
Don't buy this. It's causing an allergic reaction to my entire face, neck, and chest. Sunburn like effect with raised bumps after only 2 days. This was the only thing that changed in my beauty regimen. There's got to be something else for you to buy. Avoid this lotion.
KT from Texas
I clean my face regularly but my pores had become clogged and my face broke out badly. This product was recommended to me and within days, my skin began to clear. I'd suggest to use a moisturizer with this product.
Anne from Kansas
If I were to get one moisturizer for the rest of my life, this is the one. I have very sensitive skin and have struggled with acne for years; this lotion has never once broken me out, turned my skin red, burned, or dried it out in any way. Wonderful under makeup and lasts all day. It actually makes your skin sooo smooth when you apply it and let it sink in, idk what's going on but it's amazing. The only product I splurge on and it truly has saved my skin.
Krea from Dickinson, Texas
I used this product twice on two separate occasions at night before bed and both times woke up with a rash and swollen eyes😳. I have never had a reaction to any type of skin products with retinol. It's going bye-bye!
JG from USA
I bought this seeing the great reviews but I haven't noticed much of a change. It's just an overpriced moisturizer. I'd also like to add that it smells like old people... I don't love spending a ton of money but I'm willing to do it on skincare that works. This isn't something I'd buy again.
Gayle from Sierra Vista, AZ
I got this moisturizer in a FitFunFab box. It hydrates my combo oily/dry skin without my skin freaking out and over producing oil. Would definitely add to my face product arsenal.
SharB from Albuquerque NM
Received this in a fab, fit & fun box and liked it enough to purchase again. Don't be fooled by the small tube a little goes a long way. Worth the money! Very hydrating and non greasy!
aleicole from Grand Rapids, MI
This lotion was recommended to me a couple years ago for my ugly, acne-prone, 30's skin as a daily moisturizer. In conjunction with some other products I've discovered over the years, I now have the best skin of my life!
I also like the anti-aging time-release cleanser (NOT the clarifying cleanser) and swap the moisturizer out for an extremely hydrating night cream overnight (Murad used to make one, but does not seem to any more so I am still on the hunt for its replacement).
