*update* after having strange painful small blemishes around my nose for the last 6 months, i traced the problem to this product. i'm not sure what in the product caused it, but as soon as i stopped using it, the breakouts vanished. I think it was some kind of dermatitis. Its a shame, otherwise the product worked great. *original review* I'm really impressed with this product. To begin, i have combo/oily skin, i'm 26, and i have moderate acne. I use DDF's 10% Glycolic Toner, and have had great results w/ that, but slacked off on using it and my skin went nuts. To help my skin get back on track and ready for summer here in FL i bought Skyn Iceland's 'The Antidote' to replace my Korres Yoghurt cream (which is lovely, but too heavy for summer). The Skyn Iceland product was nice, but after about a month proved to not really moisturize. I keep it around for a sunburn serum. Insomniac that i am, i caught the Murad infomercial one night/morning and altho i have cleansers and treatment toners covered, was interested by the moisturizer. Grabbed a bottle at Sephora and 2 weeks later, i'm duly impressed. This seems to be a perfect pair for my DDF toner and my skin tone and texture has snapped back to pre-laziness levels. My breakouts are almost totally gone and i have no new ones coming up. I'm also a great deal less oily during the day. I wash my face once a day, at night (MAC Cleanse Off Oil), follow w/ DDF toner, and then this. In the morning, i rinse my face w/ water and put a teeny bit of this on dry areas, if any. It has an odd smell but that fades quickly and its not that strong. Absorbs well and leaves a nice finish on the skin. I'd definitely repurchase assuming it continues to work this well.

Great hydration with mattifying factor too! Originally started using this at nighttime a few weeks ago and now I used it as makeup base as it leaves a silky smooth finish. Very happy with it so far :)

Ugh. $33, and it's such crap. I bought it because I'd heard good reviews and really wanted to use a better face lotion than I had been using. This stuff was greasy, there's not a lot in there, and clogged my pores. I'm going to throw it out when I buy something else, I just need to get to the store. I'm not returning it to Ulta because I can't find the receipt! :(
It has pore-clogging ingredients like algae and as I see on the review down more, methol. Ew, ew, ew. If someone finds a good skin-perfecting lotion that doesn't leave your face a greasy clog-filled mess, let me know? Clogged pores are my biggest issue.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Hazel
eww greasy. Plus it has pore clogging ingredients(like methol)! I should have checked those out before I bought this. Was able to return to Ulta though. I didn't use it long enought to see if it would break me out but, usually when things feel that greasy, its not a good sign.

At first I hated it but now I think it's working somewhat for me. I used to think that it's too oily but now I use my whole hand to apply it instead of 2 fingers and it works somehow. The amount of product on my face is enough to keep it soft and not oily. (^_^)
Update!!!! too oily again...don't think that it's helping the acne much.

I have combination, sensitive, acne prone skin. I gave Murad a try and it made my skin worse. I looked so bad for a while. I've gone back to using my dermatologist's face wash and spot treatment, Boscia Oil Free Moisturizer w/SPF 15 in the day, and Avon HydraRadiance Night Moisturizer and my skin is finally looking normal. I would definitely not recommend anything by Murad.

I love, love, love, love this moisturizer.
I've been using the whole Murad Acne Complex system for over 4 years, and the Skin Perfecting Lotion is just amazing. It is super-lightweight and has definitely decreased the good ol' mid-day T-zone oiliness.
It's such a great feeling to find a product that you know you'll use forever :-) I just wish it was sold in a larger bottle!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Not a good product at all. It made my normal/oily skin really dry. My skin got so dry that flakes appear. In the meantime, I still have breakouts.
Update: I have kept on using this product for close to a month now, and you know, I have a better feel about this lotion now. I had really bad acne and dry skin in the same time for about two weeks, now my skin is getting better and more even.

You know, I used to use this stuff 6 years ago, and then curiosity got the best of me and I started trying everything else. EVERY expensive department store lotion or moisturizer, and nothing has really done it for me. And a stumbled across an ad for this stuff, re-purchased, and now I am wondering why on earth I ever decided to stop using it. Just lovely, absorbs beautifully, skin super soft, and it has retinol, which is essential for changing the behavior of your skin. I am officially declaring this my HG!

I've been using this at night for about 2 weeks along with Boscia's clear skin kit. I love it! It moisturizes better that anything else, and doesn't make me break out, as far as I can tell. It makes my skin feel really soft and smooth, and not greasy at all.

I got this as part of the Acne Complex kit. I really like the texture. It's light but moisturizing. And it hasn't caused me to break out. But I haven't noticed any miracle difference in my skin either.

I really wanted to like this, so I've tried it in each of our four seasons. Sadly, this is just not a product that works for me. It's light weight, but smells a bit off. It did cause breakouts and made my skin PEEL in cooler/cold months. I'm 40 with acne-pone skin.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Love this moisturizer! I just wish it had SPF in it. It feels lightweight, not greasy at all. Doesn't break me out.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone Hair: Brown Eyes: Other
Glides right on.... a little goes a long way... and super moisturizing without being greasy.. does not break me out whatsoever! Love it!

I love this stuff. I just bought my 2nd tube.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
This is the only moisturizer I use during the day. It truley does what it says. Will always be a staple for me.

Love this moisturizer! I've used it for quite some time and have had no problems with my sensitive skin. It is pretty expensive for a small size, so I try to stretch it out as long as I can, but I do that because it's the best moistruizer I've had in a long time! Very happy with it.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Olive Hair: Black, Wavy Eyes: Brown
Fantastic moisturizer. Very light scent to it. Sinks right into the skin and lasts all day. Quite pricey but worth it. Only thing I like from Murad that didn't make me break out and the only good part about the acne complex.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
My skin is very sensitive and acne prone, so typically moisturizers for acne prone skin end up causing a firey mess. This lightweight lotion absorbs quickly and doen't cause any irritation. My acne has not totally cleared, but there has been a moderate improvement (again with NO drying irritation). So, this one is a keeper.
