As directed, I used all the products (the night time promotional kit with the cleanser, renewing cream and balancing night cream) and the free samples (eye cream and daytime moisturizer) for about 28 days. I was very disappointed and unhappy with the results.
The infomercial promised a dewey glow. I never saw any glow. The infomercial promised fewer lines and firmer skin. I never noticed any change. The infomercial promised fewer breakouts due to healthier skin. I continued to have the occasional breakouts on my chin and even more breakouts on my forehead. When I started to breakout on my cheeks--where I never breakout--I stopped using the products.
The kit came with a free sample of Acne Treatment Gel, which I tried one night in the beginning of the trial period, hoping to clear the breakouts on my forehead and start to see the miraculous "glow". In the morning, I awoke with a red measle-like rash, wherever I had used the gel.
The rash went away in a few days, and I continued to use all the other products. I still wanted to believe the informercial and all the claims in the product literature--Dr. Murad is a UCLA dermatologist and I'm a UCLA grad--His concepts made sense and I wanted to believe he had developed a unique skincare program. My results just didn't match their claims.
Everyday, I evaluated my skin waiting to see anything positive, (the informercial claims, it takes 30 days, but you might see the "glow" in less time). However, my skin actually got worse over time. After 4 weeks, I stopped using the products and almost immediately, the white bumps on my forehead started to clear up.
I returned the kit. I'm still waiting for my refund for the trial package, as well as the first 90-day shipment, which was automatically mailed after just 3 weeks--before I finished the trial period and could determine, if the product would work for me.
It cost me 4 weeks in lost time searching for a skincare regimen, and about $20-- 2 X $6.95 for Murad's S&H, as well as return postage. And I feel like a fool, falling for an infomercial. Live and learn.
