I know a lot of people are against the Murad acne products. However, I'm one of the few success cases. On the other hand, I'm a realistic success case. There was no major miracle with my face as I still do break out around my period. However, my face is so much calmer and I keep trying different products but nothing keeps my acne more in control than Murad. I can't give this a 5 because I'm not completely clear all the time and like right now I have a active zit and another acne scar on my chin, but it deserves praise because I feel more secure about myself than the hell I was living in about 5 years ago. My acne wasn't severe but it was moderate/high mild and I hated going to work coz when I started there I was pretty clear skined and then bam, pimple city. When using Murad, using twice a day helps coz when I tried using it once a day(to save costs) I started breaking out more. You can skip here and there but be careful coz it's habit forming.
When you first start using Murad make sure to only use the exfoliating gel at night for two weeks. Using it twice a day.... well your skin will purge and it's embarrassing. Murad is not for everyone, but have patience coz for me that is what it took for it to work. Maybe about 6 weeks in did I start to notice real progress. If you want completely clear skin all year round I don't think Murad is for you but if you can live with pimples here and there and completely clear skin half of the time then try it.
I actually get compliments on my skin because my cheeks glow from the exfoliating treatment gel and i average about one to two major pimple every two months or so around the period time. If anybody is a fan or need advice of Murad, email me.

Never again!!!! I used this my first year of college and it made my skin go through hell! HUGE, painful dark red pimples formed. My face hurt to the touch. It made me not want to look in the mirror. I thought it might just be me, and that I was sensitive to the product, so I gave it to my brother. After a weeks use, his face was in the same horrible condition. I felt so guilty. We immediately threw the product away.

I've been using this for a month now. I like the Murad line and I've seen improvement in my skin since I started using
this system. Granted I don't use each product.

WHAT I LIKE:
The Clarifying Cleanser: Even though I'm bored with it (I'd already been using this in conjuction with other skincare line products), it keeps my skin clean without drying it out.

Exfoliating Acne Treatment Gel: I like this. A nice, thin, easily-absorbed salicylic acid gel. It's helping. In the beginning, it brought some huge, painful pimples to the surface, but now those are pretty minimal except the days right before my cycle.

WHAT I DON'T LIKE:
The Skin Perfecting Lotion: Since I use a moisturizing sunscreen, this cream was useless to me.

Acne Spot Treatment: I was hoping this would speed up the healing process but it just makes my pimples larger than they'd usually get for a couple of days and *then* they heal. Love the idea, though.

STILL ON THE FENCE:
Clarifying Mask: Oh this sulfur mask stinks! The smell stays on my skin hours after I wash it off. But I think it may be helping as well. Doesn't make things worse, like that spot treatment.

I wouldn't buy the kit again, but I think the Murad line has some great products. I think my issue's hormonal though, and in the long run, this is just another way of mistreating my problem.

This stuff ruined my face! The products in the kit left my face really red, severely dried out, itchy, and peeling. After using this kit for a week, my face was left feeling like it had been burned!

This kit isn't nothing but a total waste of money! I only wish that I could rate it a 0!

I have only been using this for a few days but I already see a difference. I was using Neutrogena products for my mild acne and it wasn't really doing anything. Within 24 hours of switiching to Murad my existing pimples shrunk almost completely away and my skin feels healthy and cleaner. I'm sure it's not for everyone. I've tried Proactiv and it was wayyy too hars but others rave about it. Same for this I'm sure. But I will say that it's much more gentle than Proactiv. My skin is on the sensitive/dry side and I can use this kit with no problems so far. I'll have to see how it works in the long run but so far so good.

This kit didn't break me out, and I actually liked the scent and feel of the products, but they didn't do anything for my acne. Proactive is so much better!
