Skin Care Review: Murad 30-Day Acne Kit

by E.S., Greeneville, TN, USA

Adverse Effects

None whatsoever.

Dryness, Irritation,Peeling, Increased blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples

This product was terrible. It did not work for my skin type at all. I have sensitive, oily, very acne-prone skin. After the first two or three days of using this product, my skin seemed like it was clearing up. Then it began to get very irritated, and I noticed I had blackheads and whiteheads popping up all over. They tell you to expect a "purging period," so I assumed this was it and stuck with it. Things only got worse, and I never seemed to start improving, even towards the end of the trial period. This product greatly irritated my skin, INCREASED my acne significantly, and dried my face out to the point of being flaky. My face hadn't looked so bad since the low point of my teenage years! After using this for the initial 30-day trial period with terrible results, I switched back to Proactiv and almost immediately began to see improvement and decreased irritability.

I would never recommend Murad to anyone. Proactiv is much more effective.
